Reviewing Beauty: L'oreal Ever Curl Sulfate/Free Curl Care System


There is nothing worse than dry, brittle hair. Kinky/curly hair is naturally dry, but of course we don't want to keep it that way. The frigid temps are making things even worse on our coils. And don't even get me started on how the space heaters leave our hair and skin parched. But L'oreal's new Ever Curl hair care system is designed to hydra charge and #FreeYourHair.
The system includes shampoo, conditioner, and a sculpt & hold cream-gel - which are all sulfate-free and infused with coconut oil. Unfortunately, the products do contain silicone (if you're particular about the ingredients in your products) but using silicone products sparingly never hurt nobody.

Prior to shampooing, I deep conditioned with Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Hair Masque with a plastic cap and towel for an hour. This made it even easier for the L'Oreal Hydracharge Shampoo to slip through my hair, tangle-free. I love the consistency of this shampoo. It's so creamy and a little goes a long way. It doesn't leave your hair completely stripped but I would love to feel a little more moisture after using this product.


While dancing and singing in the shower bathing, I applied the Hydracharge Conditioner. For us thick curly girls, you will definitely need a good amount of this product to comb through and saturate your hair. It's a thinner conditioner that provides a good amount of moisture, but leaves the hair tangle-free. I'm a big fan of the smell - a mix between coconut and a fancy Diptyque candle. Both products promise to deliver anti-frizz definition, natural botanicals, and be non-drying.

The Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel is the styling agent. I layered this product on top of the Smooth 'N Shine Intense Moisture Deep Recovery Treatment, which acts as a leave-in. I did a braid-out, with four braids, using both products on damp hair. The cream-gel promises to condition and shape and also provide anti-frizz definition. Normally, I would be hesitant about a product like this based off its physical design. Most of the time, gel/creamy products in a pump tube aren't for my hair type (which is 4a by the way). Directions recommend to use 1-2 pumps throughout your entire hair, but I used 2 pumps per braid. And based on its consistency, I wouldn't use this product on its own with layering a leave-in.


Here is the result of my braid out. I left it in a pineapple but you can see how frizz free and moisturized my hair is. Will you be trying these products? 


I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes
