I have a lot of products and I’m often delayed in using them right away. I purchased Kurlee Belle Thirsty Kurls Leave-In Conditioner sometime ago. Put it like this, I had fully relaxed hair when I purchased it. However, I am just now getting around to doing the review. Before I dive into the review, let’s cover the basics.
The price of Kurlee Belle Thirsty Kurls Leave-In Conditioner is $12.00 for 8 oz. I consider that reasonably priced when comparing it to other handmade items on the market.

The Kurlee Belle Thirsty Kurls Leave-In Conditioner Experience
Thirsty Kurls has a hibiscus smell which works for me. It is lightweight and provides a good amount of slip for detangling. However, that’s where the magic ends.
I first tried it on fully relaxed hair but ditched it after a few uses because my hair was extremely dry when using it as a leave-in conditioner. I even tried using it as a moisturizer. No matter how I tried it, it simply did not work and left my hair feeling stiff and extremely dry.
Now that I am transitioning and have more natural hair than relaxed hair, I thought I would give it a try yet again. Unfortunately, my hair responded in the same manner as before. Well, ok….that’s not completely true. I had a few sections of hair that responded favorably but as an overall rating, my hair was not a fan.
Knowing how your hair responds to ingredients is an important aspect of buying products. My hair is hit and miss with aloe vera within some product formulations. It often makes my hair feel stiff and dry because it acts as a protein on my hair. However, I got caught up in the hype of reading great reviews and purchased with knowing there would be a 50/50 chance of success. I really wanted to like the Kurlee Belle Thirsty Kurls Leave-In Conditioner but my hair simply wasn’t feeling it.
If your hair loves aloe vera, this product might work well for you. Otherwise, your results might resemble mine. However, if you would like to try Kurlee Belle products for yourself, visit their website or check your local Walmart!
