Making waves in the curly community - Curlvana products review

Curly hair is like a Cancerian: pretty, twisted, and with a mind of its own! The love-hate relationship with my hair since I was a kid because I never knew how to tackle my twirled tendril-like hair, and for that I always had short hair. After having used several shampoos and conditioners, I have finally come across a range that can suit my A3 curls. Hence, I present to you my take of Curlvana’s ultimate kit

First up, let’s know a little more about the brand. Curlvana as the name suggests is a curl-care range. It is a cruelty-free, eco-friendly, dermatologically approved brand, which doesn't include harsh chemicals like parabens, sulfates, silicones, phthalates, artificial fragrances, etc. Their lineup currently consists of 5 products that work for curly, wavy, and coiled hair across different porosity levels.

Upon first glance, Curlvana looks like an all-in-one brand for women with textured hair. While there are a few curly-hair-friendly Indian brands, this one is different because they have put in a lot of research into understanding curly hair and its relationship with tropical Indian weather. 

If you happen to be a curly beauty who has traveled abroad, you might have noticed your hair behaves much better than it does in humid Indian weather. Well, there is a science behind it. Curly hair is naturally dry because the natural oils from the scalp cannot penetrate through the hair shaft because of the twisted structure of the strands. Therefore, curls are always on the lookout for moisture as they are perennially dehydrated. Upon interaction with the humidity in the hair, the shaft absorbs the moisture in the air and swells up. So, the conclusion is to make sure that curly hair is always super hydrated and well-nourished to be frizz-free. 

To tackle this problem, Curlvana has come up with India’s first glycerine-free CG-approved range in India, which is loaded with ingredients like Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Shea Butter, fermented rice water extracts, etc, to keep curls supple and nourished. So let us know about Curlvana ultimate kit review. 

Curlvana Products Review 

The range comprises a shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, leave-in conditioner, and hair gel. If you are planning to invest in a complete Indian Curly Hair Routine, then this brand is worth checking out, and here’s why: 

Curlvana’s Fortifying Curl Cleanse is a gentle shampoo that cleans the scalp without causing any dryness. It is formulated without strong surfactants. You won’t be impressed by it on the first couple of uses because we are so used to the lather formed by sulfate-laden shampoos. However, after about 4 uses you will feel your hair is much softer and stronger. The product contains plant protein and Jamaican Black Castor Oil to strengthen the hair strands. We all know that curls tangle easily which leads to hair breakage, therefore having a shampoo that fortifies the hair shaft is always a blessing. 

Curlvana Curl Shine Gentle Conditioner is a super lightweight product with a creamy consistency. It doesn’t weigh down the hair and helps in defining the curls. It is not very rich, but at the same time provides ample nourishment. It can also help in repairing the damage caused by years of heat styling of hair. It locks in the moisture even on days when you don’t apply additional styling products like leave-ins or gels. 

Stiff, crunchy curls are an absolute nightmare for anyone, which is why most use hydrating leave-in conditioners. Formulated without silicones, Curlvana’s curl styling leave-in cream is an absolute game-changer in person’s curly hair routine. It contains Jamaican Black Castor Oil and fermented rice water extract to enhance shine and softness. The best part is, that it doesn’t cause buildup and is very lightweight. Unlike other products that weighs hair down this one doesn’t or make it sticky. It separates the curls creating an illusion of volume without the frizz. 

Curlvana Deep Nourish Double Cream Hair Mask; as the name suggests, is a deeply hydrating mask that quenches the curls. Formulated with Shea Butter as one of its prime ingredients, it coats each strand with some much-needed TLC. It reduces surface friction by shutting out moisture and creating glorious ringlets. This is most promising product from the entire range. If you are planning to buy only one product from Curlvana, then buy this. 

Applying gel to hair can  make curls very sticky and difficult to style on 2nd-day. Thankfully, Curlvana’s Curl Defining Styling Gel: has dealt with that problem. The gel just seals hair in place without any sticky or crunchy residue. Hair doesn’t feel stiff, instead, it feels soft and conditioned. I think the consistency of this gel is such that it will work on curly, wavy, and coiled hair.

Final words on Curlvana’s Ultimate Kit 

First up it is nice to see an Indian brand put in so much research into formulating specialized products for Indian curly and wavy hair. There are so many ingredients that can be detrimental to the health of curls so it's best to choose a hair range that steers clear of them. Curlvana products have been a revelation to me. With so many features in the product range Curlvana is on par with international hair care brands. Each product serves a variety of functions resulting in glamorous curls. You will have the confidence to rock your curls without being conscious of the frizz and that makes life so much easier. You don't have to spend hours in front of the mirror damaging your tresses by ironing them. Curlvana is changing the perception of curls and has helped many to love them a little more.
