My thoughts after the jump!

My Thoughts: I've had this duo in my stash for a while now, but I wasn't to amped to try it. I was kinda waiting for NC to send me the Kinky Curling Cream so I could review it as a full set, but I said what the heck I'll just try it anyway. I started off giving my hair a good rinse and then sectioning it into 2 halves. I applied the shampoo liberally just like the directions advise and began to massage it in. It lathered up really good considering that it's a sulfate free cleanser and the scent is just like fresh grapefruit! After giving my hair a good massage and rinse my felt clean and soft...not stripped at all!! After repeating this process on the other half, I then applied the Ultra Rich Conditioner.

If you luvvvv thick, creamy, smelling yummylicious type conditioners then you'll luvvvv this one!! I just have to say ditto to everything that is in the product description, because what it says is what it really does. I applied it to my hair in 2 sections generously from root to tip. I did a little bit of finger combing to get any big knots out and then I covered my head with a plastic bag (yes, a bag lol!). Since it was late I decided to leave it on overnight for some deep conditioning.

In the morning, I began the detangling process. I decided to take a new approach to detangling my hair, which is to only use my fingers to detangle and I must do so very carefully and gently. This new method is time consuming but the amount of hair lost was about 2 or 3x less than when I use a brush or comb. I don't know how long I'll keep up with this new method but I figured I share it with you guys :)

And back to this review....After detangling I rinse my hair and was very pleased to find that my hair still felt soft and moisturized after the conditioner was out. Some of these thick and conditioners on the market feel good at first but as soon as you rinse it out, your hair feels no different than when you started. So not the case with this one! If I had to giving a rating I would give them both a 5/5 because they did exactly what they said they would and in the case of the conditioner it did more. My only issue is the's a bit on the expensive side. I would recommend purchasing the travel/sample sizes first, just to see if you even like it and move on to the full size if your pleased with it.

Here are a few pics of my hair with conditioner and after rinsing it out....

6 People Obsessing!

  1. Sounds good, I've been looking for a good shampoo that doesn't strip the hair but still cleans. My hair is APL and about the same density as yours, do you think a sample size would be enough for a wash?

  2. This contains hydroxysultaine which is a sulfate; therefore, the lather. Interesting that it still gave your hair the texture you desired. Will have to add it to my trial list.

  3. @Anonymous Thanks for pointing that out. I did a little searching and found that "Cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine" is derived from coconut; mild, effective cleanser.

  4. I have used these products and they do work as described. The only reason I don't still use them is the cost. If they were cheaper I would use them all of the time.

  5. @Happinap Same here...if only it was cheaper!
