Ingredients:

Aloe Vera Juice, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Cetearyl Olivate and Sorbitan Olivate, Hydroxypropyl trimonium Honey, Lactobacillus Ferment, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil (and) Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract, Dehydroxanthan Gum, Fragrance Oils.



Im not sure if they are still doing it but I received $20% off for signing up for email subscriptions for my first order. I did receive a card with my replacement jar of Cococurls saying if you like their FB page you will receive 20% off an order.


I purchased my item as you know in Feb, used it once and discovered it had mold. I received my replacement product today, so I can say customer service has been reasonable for myself.

Heres a review I found from Mae

    This worked great for me. I got a free jar at a natural hair event and used it all up in 2 months, that's how much I love it. It has a nice creaminess to it, leaves my hair feeling soft & touchable and gives me great definition--I can go 2 days without retwisting. I wish it came in other scents as the original is a bit pungent for me, but it wears off shortly so that's a small price to pay IMO.

    I wonder why this doesn't make my hair crunchy. I've used it as a refresher and I end up with soft nice hair for a day or two. I messed around and tried Donna Marie's Hair Whip in the same fashion (as a refresher over Njoi's Green Tea Cream) and I didn't make it to the office good before my hair was feeling like straw.

    What kind of coconuts are they using over there?!?!

    I have a jar I'll prob gonna put up to be sold.

  • NaturalistaNaturalista Posts: 5,491Registered Users
    Got a jar at the WNHS.

    Does crap as a solo styler, but it's hyped up Shealoe so I could've predicted that with my hair. I need MUCH more control and structure in my WnG's, but it does lend a lot of moisture, so I used it as a LI under Fantasia IC and WHAM! Soft, bouncy curls.

    Today (day 3) I didn't need to, but I used some as a moisturizer and mannn.... it's nice.

    For the price? I could do better. ElastaQP has crappy ingredients in their Mango butter but my hair acts happily strung out on it.

    Anyway...PIC!

    Here's day 1 pics.

    I've been babying this stuff, keeping it in the fridge...scooping a small amount out a time I'm tired of it. It smells great and my hair likes it in very small doses BUT its too much to keep it from spoiling. Also, at the slow rate I'm using it, it is bound to go bad and I don't need the headache.

    This gel cream looks good. Looks like she's combining the softness and conditioning from jojoba, coconut and olivem 1000 (the emulsifier Cetearyl Olivate and Sorbitan Olivate--which is the same emulsifier that QB uses for the amla and olive cream). The gum is there for hold, but there may be little hold because of all the moisture from the honequat and the emulsifier.

    Hmmm, I would try this, but the no preservative makes me stop :(

    Love, unfortunately, doesn't prevent spoilage. In fact, love hastens spoilage....Love is blind, it will take over your cream because it can't see the germs... :lol:

    I shoulda stopped too. But I was at the hair show, and the hype was high and my sense...kinda low. I haven't used it on freshly shampooed hair. I only used it to refresh a braidout - rebraided hair with other product already in it. It worked very nice. My hair was soft and fluffy.

    I bought the big ole' jar too, and I've been checkin' everyday, for little green men.

    LOL Nea!

    Maybe she uses a preservative and doesn't list it? I'm really failing to see, if all these companies are "researching" to make these products, how they miss the part that a preservative is necessary, not an option. It doesn't leave me with a good impression :(

    And, you won't see the little green men until there are MILLIONS of them.

    My love hasn't spoiled on me yet. I love this stuff as a moisturizer though and if she gets the preservative thing together, I will def repurchase. It's better than BeeMine LBMC and just as good as MJ BBC or CBC without the heavy smell.

    I tried a small section in the back as a leave in prior to doing a WnG. I didnt like the fact that it wasnt absorbing and I didnt feel like waiting so I used something else.


    I think this would work best as a moisturizer/ refresher or twists/braids styles
  • LovemenappyLovemenappy Posts: 332Registered Users
    what legit reason could she have for not using a preservative? That's a health issue....rosemary and vitamin e (and other antioxidants) are not replacements for preservatives.

    uhoh! Please check board rules for more information about posting on behalf of your brand. It is not allowed.

    To my knowledge, Leucidal liquid is not effective against yeast and mold in a w/o cosmetics---tests were done only with bacteria and fungi...I could be wrong though.

    Awww man she said she does use a preservative (CN pointed out an issue with its effectiveness though)...overall it was a pretty good rebuttal to all of the complaints and concerns that have been raised. She agreed LOVE is not enough, she said she got a bad batch of shea butter back in Feb and has since switch vendors. She seems like she wants to do right by her customers.

    Naw...I get no indication that she's a shady person. I believe she's of good character. Now, I don't know if my cream is part of the bad shea butter batch. But so far, my cream shows no evidence of mold. I'm using it as a moisturizer, and I like it a lot.

    Yea, her response was good. If her shea butter was contaminated, she should really recall ALL the creams that she made with that batch of Shea, rather than wait for people to report that it went bad. If the shea was contaminated, the cream IS contaminated. All the creams are compromised and should not be used. I hope she has a QC system in place.

    lol at CK's "Love is not enough"

    That is true. I've yet to see anybody do that, because it's costly. The big dawgs can do that..and their quality control is tighter.

    That's why people should use bar coding, to keep track of what jars come from what product batches. (I'm sleepy, ya'll so forgive me if I'm not making sense...). That way, if you ever get a report of a faulty jar/bottle of product, you can know exactly when it was made, and how much you made, and wha ingredients were used to make it.

    I'm going to bed. Goodnite...

    That's the cost of doing business. If something like with one of your components happens, no matter how small you are, you need to be ready to recall that stuff. Because someone could sue you and then you may end up losing a lot more.

    Oh, I know. But I also know most folks aren't willing to pay the cost...because they're runnin' on a string, from the gitgo.

    That's why you need to run the tightest ship, when you're a small, indie company - because your "mistakes" will cost you more all around. If your quality control isn't tight, you're really in trouble, cuz you don't know what you need to "recall".

    I tried it last night on dry hair spritz'd with a little aloe vera to moisten it up.

    I'm not sure its going to be a keeper for me. My hair has a problem absorbing heavily laden shea butter products sometimes.

    Its very creamy and I love the smell but my hair looks a little dull today. When the twists set last night at first they seemed sheeny but today my hair looks sorta ashy.


    Im going to try it on freshly washed hair on the weekend and see how it goes
