I had my first salon visit as a natural and the stylist used Camille Rose Curl Maker for my wash and go so I thought I’d share my thoughts with you.
What is Camille Rose Curl Maker?
Camille Rose describes Curl Maker as being a sweet defining jelly enriched with smoothing marshmallow and agave extracts.
Dionized water, pectin, coco nucifera(coconut) oil, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, panthenol, ricinus communis (caster) seed oil, althaea officinalis (marshmallow) root extract, agava americana leaf extract, equisetum arvense (horsetail) extract, urtica dioica (nettle) leaf extract, corn starch, xanthan gum, chondrus (seaweed) crispus, polysorbate 20, tocopheryl acetate (vitanin E), cyanocobalamin (vitamin b-12), phenoxyethanol (optiphen nd) caprylyl glycol, fragance (parfum)
My stylist generously applied Camille Rose Curl Maker from root to tip on freshly co-washed hair. She did not use the praying hands method for smoothing the hair like we do at home. Instead, she squeezed product in my hair and allowed the hair to pass through her hand. She finger detangled first and then used a double row detangling comb on small sections of hair. She added more Camille Rose Curl Maker and clumped my curls with a paddle brush. She did not seal my hair with an oil or butter.
She considers Camille Rose Curl Maker an all in one product, thus she doesn’t feel sealing is necessary and she was right. My hair felt moisturized the next day.
I have tried many products since being natural and Camille Rose Curl Maker has allowed my curls to show through best. Granted, some of that is likely stylist technique but either way, my curls were on some next level greatness. Even my whack patches were on point.
Curl Maker locks in the curls with medium hold. For a softer hold with increased moisture, she suggested using Camille Rose Curlaide first and then layer Camille Rose Curl Maker on top. She suggested refreshing with Camille Rose Curl Milk as needed.
I noticed a few white balls in my hair from product buildup after my wash and go dried. I’m new to the Camille Rose line so I asked my stylist if this is normal. She said it was likely the DevaCurl One Conditioner that she used as the leave-in conditioner. The balls are so few that I haven’t bothered to do anything about them but my stylist suggested adding a little bit of oil to my hair to dissolve them.
Would I Use Camille Rose Curl Maker Again?
Yes! I love how this product defined my curls in a way that no other product has. It’s a little steep in price but it seems worth it. I hope to have equally as good success when I buy it and use it at home. Available at Target, Walmart, CVS, Sally’s and Walgreens.
