PRODUCT REVIEW: Onyx Rose Reviews Kurlee Belle Products

Almond and Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo
Description: Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo gently cleanses the hair and scalp without stripping natural oils. Almond nourishes the hair to help it grow long and strong. Shea Butter deeply moisturizes while repairing damage to the hair and scalp. Citrus contains vitamins that cleanse and increase scalp circulation.

 Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Cocamide MEA, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Apple Cider Vinegar, Polyquaternium- 10, Polyquaternium-7, PEG-12 Dimethicone, PEG-150 Distearate, Tetrasodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Citric Acid, Fragrance (Parfum).

My Experience: When they say "moisturizing," they are not kidding. Just about every shampoo I have tried, with or without sulfates, leaves my hair feeling clean, yet a little stripped. As I applied the shampoo, there was something about the consistency that made me believe once I rinsed it out, my strands would feel soft and hydrated-- and they were! Needless to say, I was impressed and pleasantly surprised by this shampoo. *kisses bottle*
Rating: 5/5
Banana Nut and Avocado Deep Treatment
Description: Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment is just what the doctor ordered for dry, damaged hair. Bring those tresses back to life with our smooth concoction of Banana, Avocado, Honey and Coconut. Banana is rich in potassium and hailed for its moisturizing properties. Avocado contains fatty acids that nourish, smooth and soften hair. Honey provides shine while conditioning to make hair soft and supple. Coconut hydrates, conditions and softens.
Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Stearic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Musa Sapientum (Banana) Fruit Basil Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Honey Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance (Parfum).
My Experience:  I used the entire Kurlee Belle right after I took out my Marley Twists, so my hair was in dire need of quality moisturizing products. This deep treatment has a medium consistency (good slip) and the smell? So good. Makes me want to eat a whole loaf of banana nut bread (please don't judge me *Chris Brown voice*). Anyway, I applied the deep treatment and let it work its magic for about an hour (without heat). The result was moisturized kinks and curls that popped.

Thirsty Kurls Leave-In Conditioner + Kurlee Tropical Oil Blend
Description (leave in): Thirsty Kurls Leave-In Conditioner provides "lots of slip" and moisture that detangles and softens curls. Hibiscus penetrates the cuticle to maintain acid balance. Aloe Vera soothes and moisturizes dry, damaged hair. Honey hydrates and helps the hair retain moisture.
Description (oil blend): Kurlee Tropical Oils Blend is a lubricating blend of essential tropical oils that is formulated to restore dry, damaged hair. Castor Oil is an emollient that contains fatty acids and encourages hair growth. Coconut oil strengthens and deeply moisturizes. Jojoba oil moisturizes and softens. Avocado Oil contains essential nutrients that promote hair growth and nourishment. Argan oil hydrates and strengthens for enhanced growth. Moringa oil leaves hair feeling silky.
Ingredients (leave in): Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Simmondsia Chinsensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Emulsifying Wax, Hibiscus Rosa-Senensis Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Honey Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, BHT, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance (Parfum).
Ingredients (oil blend): Glycine Soya (Soybean) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Ricinus Cummunis (Castor) Oil, Moringo Oleifera (Moringa) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, BHT, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance (Parfum).

My Experience: I used the leave-in to moisturize my hair for two-strand twists, as well as for a twistout on the kinky-curly weave I'm currently wearing. This leave-in, in conjunction with the Kurlee Tropical Oil Blend, left my two-strand twists moisturized and soft with a little sheen. Another plus is the scent of both products-- tropical and perfect for the summertime. As for the weave, the Kurlee Belle leave-in is the only leave-in I used that the hair responded well to. Peep the twistout below.

Rating for both products: 4/5

Kurl Defining Creme

Description: Kurl Defining Creme moisturizes, de-frizzes, and defines curls. For soft, shiny, 
elongated curls. Cupuacu Butter promotes moisture and elasticity. Argan oil contains vitamins and fatty acids that strengthen and encourage growth. Shea butter moisturizes while repairing damage to the hair and scalp.

Ingredients:Terrinque, the owner of Kurlee Belle, informed me that they are reformulating this product, so the ingredients list is currently unavailable. 

My Experience: I'm usually not a huge fan of curl-defining cremes simply because I've learned that no "curl-defining creme" is going to define or elongate these kinks and curls of mine. While this creme didn't define my curls, it was similar to the leave-in-- the difference, to me, is that the creme is much thicker than the leave-in and my hair retained moisture better with the leave-in.
