Product Review: Camille Rose Curlaide Moisture Butter

Name:  Camille Rose Curlaide Moisture Butter

Ingredients:  Deionized water, rice milk, behenetrimonium methosulfate and cetearyl alcohhol (BTMS), coconut oil, shea butter fruit, olive oil, green tea leaf extract, sesame seed oil, soybean oil, aloe vera leaf extract, castor seed oil, rice bran oil, macadamia seed oil, avocado oil, aloe leaf juice, silky wax, slippery elm, sorbitol, jojoba seed oil, vitamin C, vitamin E, phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol and sorbic acid, scent and LOVE!

Promise:  From the back of the bottle -- "Our wonderful Curlaide Moisture Butter will bathe your tresses in an aromatic, nourishing and tantalizing blend of amala oil, jojoba and honey.  Curlaide provides maximum moisture and curl definition."; From the Camille Rose website -- “Organic rice milk, green tea, jojoba, macadamia and slippery elm are infused to create this creamy blend so that your hair will feel moisturized and soft.  Minimize breakage with nourishing shea butter fruit and coconut oil.  Works great for wash n go’s, two strand twists, locks and braids.”

Consistency:  Like a thick face cream.  It reminds me of cake batter, but not runny.  

Scent:  Vanilla cake batter

Results:   I think they forgot to change the label on my jar because I don't see amala oil or honey in the ingredients list. I went on a vendor website and saw marshmallow root, green algae and amala in the ingredients list, but none of these were on my label.  It went on smooth like the almond jai, and it was not greasy.  However, I think the ingredient combination is too heavy for my hair and actually kept moisture out of it.  I tried to use it the way that I use the almond jai.  I flat twisted my hair for the week using this, and then I used daily moisture on my hair.  Unlike with the almond jai, by the end of the week, my hair was dry and frizzy.  My hair also felt a little hard like there was protein in my hair, which makes me wonder if there really is green algae in this product. It could also just be the coconut oil, which is high on the ingredient list.  This may work better on high porosity hair.

Love it or Dump it:  I'm getting rid of mine, but it could be great for others.  I'll stick to the Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting Butter, which I love.
