Curls Blueberry Bliss Review

Hey everyone! I’m getting accustomed to the Caribbean climate again (it’s so HOT) and that means I can finally take my hair out of a ponytail and rock a wash and go. I can’t figure out how to do any other styles successfully, so I’m always on the hunt for another styling gel. I was  introduced to the Frizz Free Curls line after hearing amazing reviews about their Curl Control Paste. I also had successful wash and gos in the past using the Curl Control Jelly. I recently purchased most of the other items in their Blueberry Bliss line to attempt the perfect wash and go.

I washed and conditioned my hair prior to using the Blueberry Bliss line so that I would be starting my routine on clean hair. I deep conditioned my hair using the Curls Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Mask. This product claims to provide deep and intensive conditioning to hair preventing breakage, repairing damage and enhancing growth. It is made with Blueberry Extract, Aloe Leaf Juice, and Chamomile Extract that repairs, protects, restores and helps to grow curls. This mask is thick, creamy and extremely easy to apply. It is the perfect consistency for my fine hair: if it is too watery it drains into the shower cap and if it’s too thick it doesn’t penetrate into my hair shaft. I apply the product from roots to ends, focusing on the ends as they are the oldest part of the hair, and let it deep condition for an hour. My hair was extremely conditioned and hydrated after and the scent is quite strong and lingers for quite a while after.

I attempted to use all the products I purchased for my wash-and-go thinking that more products and more layering = more hydrated and defined curls. I was so wrong! I have read reviews where this worked with the Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave In Conditioner, so I thought it would work the same way with the Blueberry Bliss Twist N Shout Cream. Mistake #1. My hair had no curls within an hour. It was literally a ball of frizz. It smelled amazing but the only thing I could do at that point was put into into a ponytail, then twist the hair into a bun. My hair was extremely soft so I decided that I will use the Twist and Shout cream as a heavier moisturizer when I put my hair in buns (I never do twist outs or braid outs).

The Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave In Conditioner is not for sale in the Turks and Caicos Islands so I had to improvise. I shampooed and conditioned my hair, then deep conditioned with the Curls Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Mask. So far, so good. I then applied the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength and Shine Leave-In Conditioner as it was the lightest one I could think of. I wanted to avoid the heavy layering, but wanted my hair to be moisturized. I applied the Curl Control Jelly to my hair by raking the product through in small sections in the direction that I wanted each section to set in. At the end, I used a toothbrush to lay down my edges with Curls Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste and tied them down with a silk scarf. Perfection!

The Reparative Hair Mask is now in my top 5 deep conditioners because my hair was EXTREMELY moisturized after using it. The Control Jelly is a great styler. My curls were so defined that my stretched bra strap length hair was sitting just above my shoulders. Something that people who hate shrinkage should definitely take into a consideration. It provides a light – medium hold with no crunch – my hair rarely makes it past day four before I have to put it all in a ponytail. When I’m in the U.K. my edges are laid ALL DAY with the Curl Control Paste, but when I’m in the Turks and Caicos I sweat a lot and it doesn’t last as long. It small enough to keep in my bag so I can reapply throughout the day. Overall, I would say that the products work well, but be careful of how you layer your products or the Control Jelly may not be as effective.

I completely forgot to take photos this weekend. There was a birthday celebration, a wedding and reception and it was a holiday weekend. The only photo I have that is half decent is a filtered snapchat photo. I promise to do better next time.

    Sounds like an inviting product line, but my straight hair would be wasted on it. Your curls are super cute

    I haven’t heard of it before, but it sounds amazing! I have pretty straight hair. I wonder if I could use some of these when I curl my hair?

    These products only accentuate any curls you have, however I think the reparative mask should work well regardless of hair texture. I’ll let one of my friends try it out and get back to you.

    I need a product for natural hair thats not curly, but I want curls. Also something to grow my edges.

      What results are you looking to achieve from the product? For my edges to grow, I’m currently trying Tropic Isle Living’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Hair Food. I haven’t used the full container but I’ll be sure to review as soon as I’m done.
