Jessicurl Spiralicious Gel Birthday SALE-bration

It has been one year since the official launch of the Jessicurl Sprialicious gel.  This product is pretty near and dear to my heart as I was chosen by Jess to help out in the early testing and development phase. Jess is just the sweetest there is and listened to the feedback from her customers that a stronger hold styling product was needed out of which Spiralicious was created. I will still affectionately refer to it as Yeti Juice.

I am wearing the gel in my hair today, cut with some aloe vera gel.  Due to the frequency of my workouts I don’t like applying a lot of product to my hair only to have to wash it out a day later, seems wasteful to me. So I have been using aloe vera gel to stand in the gap and provide some filler while still getting good results.

DCN Weekly Recap 8.1.14

Life happens and I don’t post as often as I would like to. My drafts folder is a hot mess of reviews and articles I never finished.  Sometimes it is quicker to just post a picture and comment on facebook or instagram than it is to write a blog post. But I am taking a tip from my boy Jor-El over at ManeManBlog and going to include a weekly recap.  This is something I can definitely commit to.  This will be a combination of sales, dope styles, hot topics and whatever else has caught my eye this week.

Upcoming Review: TreLuxe Hi! Definition Curl Enhancer

Derby City Naturals Wash n Go with TreLuxe Hi Definition Spoiler alert: I loved it. My hair + mucilage gels = happy Haley.  I was able to get four day hair with the TreLuxe Hi Definition Curl Enhancer.  I probably could have went longer but I work out 6 of 7 days and going four days without washing is super gross.  But man did my hair look good.

Jessicurl’s New Spiralicious Styling Gel

Jessicurl Spiralicious Styling GelIt’s here! You may remember me talking about Jessicurl’s new strong-hold styling gel. I was part of the testing process and even got to submit suggestions to name the new gel.

Well Spiralicious is officially released to everyone on Jessicurl website available in you favorite scents Island Fantasy, Citrus Lavender or unscented.

This styler provides great 2-3 day hair for me and gives my wash-n-go’s the definition I love without the crunch.

Jessicurl Wants You to Play the Name Game

JESSI

I am so proud to share with you some news I’ve kept mum since this beginning of this year. Jessicurl has been providing the curly haired crowd with awesome products for 11 years and is releasing a new strong-hold styler this October. With Jess being a super duper awesome person who I am proud to call friend I was selected to be a tester of this gel unofficially nicknamed *ahem* Yetti Juice — don’t ask. Jessicurl firm hold styler natural hair

You know I have my favorite gels and I am really happy with the results I get from this product. Is it better than my favs?  Honestly, no. But does it do a damn good job? Absolutely. This styler provides a stronger hold than previous Jessicurl products that moisturize well for me but are not optimum stylers for my hair needs.  This product keeps my curls poppin without creating a crunchy helmet that I get from most strong hold gels. I can get 2-3 day hair from one application. [See photo above for actual results]

Now the name game. While Jess has put all her neurons into creating this product she is left out on a limb with what to call it. That is where you come in.  Jessicurl is hosting a contest to name the new product, and the selected winner not only gain the admiration of curly girls all over the world, but they will also receive $500 in Jessicurl product. Umm yeah, that is a whole love of Deep Conditioning Treatment, my fav product from the line. Click this link for details how to enter.

For some added help here are a few deets about the product:

  • The product is white in color and sticky to touch sort of like glue.
  • It is more creamy than gel-like in texture.
  • The product is liquid and definitely belongs in a bottle, not a jar.
  • I would refer to this as a medium styler on the broad product spectrum, but the manufacturer considers it a firm styler as compared to other products in their line.

Submit your entries to Jessicurl and good luck!

Product Review: Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment

Jessicurl

Deep Conditioning Treatment

8 oz $16.95, sale price $10.17

ing: Water (Aqua) infused with Equisetum Maximum Lam (Horsetail), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary), Laurus Nobilis (Bay Leaf), Ocimum Basilicum (Basil), Arctium Lappa (Burdock Root), Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow Root), Origanum Vulgare (Oregano), Cymbopogon Flexuosus (Lemongrass), Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme), Salvia Officinalis (Sage) and Urtica Dioica (Nettle); Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Soy Lecithin, Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate

I’ve spoke on this before but I am not big on deep conditioning.  Why? My hair really doesn’t crave it.  I normally pre-poo my hair, wash with a gentle shampoo, condition and detangle then moisturize, style and seal.  Since coloring my hair the porosity has increased some and I have seen more benefits from deep conditioning.  I reviewed other products in the Jessicurl line and intentionally skipped the deep conditioning treatment, but I have since pulled out my sample pack to give it a try.

I cleansed my hair then tried a new conditioner that had absolutely no slip -boo.  I squeezed out every drop of the 1 ounce package and applied to my hair.  The product is very thick and smelled of cocoa butter (this was the unscented version) which I found enjoyable.  My hair quickly drank up this product, in some areas it looked as though I had not applied any conditioner at all, thirst much?  I added a few fingerfuls of Jessicurl Too Shea conditioner to those areas.  I covered my hair with a cap, sat for 20 minutes then rinsed.  The result was soft, bouncy hair.

So I know you are wondering: How does the Deep Conditioning Treatment compare the  Too Shea Conditioner?  IMO, Too Shea is a souped-up rinse out conditioner that can moonlight as a deep conditioner.  Too Shea has a drinkable yogurt consistency and provides great slip.  Deep Conditioning Treatment is a grown woman’s deep conditioner.  It is thick like chocolate mousse with okay slip.  DCT belongs in a jar, while TS belongs in a bottle.  I like Too Shea, but I love the Deep Conditioning Treatment!  

For me, each 8 oz jar holds 4-5 applications which is just under $4 per treatment.  The shipping from Cali is a little pricey, however this product is available on naturally and nounou’s boutique so keep an eye out for shipping offers on those sites.  I will be grabbing a few jars at the next hair show along with a hug from my girl Jess.  Final thoughts on DCT are:It’s a keeper!

Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment 40% off sale through Tuesday January 31 2012. Use coupon code DTD36945 at checkout.  Sale is good on 8 ounce size in all three scents. Pick some up and let us know your thoughts.
