Hey lovely people! Before getting started with the review let me explain a little something about this hair care method knows as CURLY GIRL METHOD (read more here). It’s a safe method for all hair types including wavy with products that contain no silicones, sulphates, drying alcohols and so on. I came across a UK based monthly subscription by the name CURLEE BOX(checkout the unboxing and application video here) with worldwide shipping, which is entirely dedicated to this method. The monthly box retails at 20 GBP and the July edition contained 5 full-sized products by the brand CURLS.
So let’s review the 5 products by CURLS which belong to the Cashmere & Caviar range :
✔️ HAIR BATH (shampoo).
✔️ HAIR MASQUE (for Deep conditioning)
✔️ HAIR SILK(leave in conditioner /Detangler).
✔️ HAIR GELLE (lotion like no hold gel) .
✔️ HAIR SERUM (oil based hair treatment) .
ABOUT THE CASHMERE CAVIAR RANGE :
Strengthen, Restructure & Add Sheen to Stressed and Damaged Coils and Kinks formulated with
• Certified Organic Cashmere Extract for Uber Soft, Yet Stronger Tresses
• Certified Organic Caviar Extract, Rich in Vitamins A and D + Omega 3, 6 and 9
• Champagne Fruit Extract for Increased Elasticity and Manageability
(The range is supposed to be best for super curly, kinky hair however my 2A-2B wavy hair responded positively)
ABOUT THE 4 KEY INGREDIENTS
Certified organic cashmere extract: Cashmere extract leaves hair feeling luxuriously softer and stronger since cashmere proteins support the natural protein found in hair. Composed primarily of the most luxurious protein keratin broken down into the smallest molecular level to improve the condition of hair, via smoothing the cuticle, imparting intense shine and manageability. Cashmere also emits high wattage shine, stops frizz, gives more bounce and makes tresses more controllable. Cashmere proteins have a restructuring action, which will smooth and revive strands from the inside out.
Caviar extract: Rich in vitamin A, B and high in antioxidants and Omega-3 and Omega-6 this extract enhances moisture and naturally repairs and restores textured strands while boosting Sebum production, and preventing hair loss ( Zinc). Plus the UVA and UVB within protect against damage. This rich hydrating and restoring ingredient improves the overall quality of the hair while enhancing health and shine.
Champagne fruit :The antioxidants in Champagne Fruit Extract are 20 to 50 times more powerful than vitamin C and vitamin E resulting in protection from damage, eliminating free radicals and purifying the hair and scalp. Also known for improving elasticity and manageability
Activatd charcoal : Found in the Cashmere and Caviar Hair Bath. Active Charcoal is an all natural benefit to the scalp and hair as it gently removes excess weight, build up and oil and relieves toxins from your scalp. The effects are effective cleansing while purifying the scalp and hair, creating natural volume and allowing your hair to better absorb the ingredients in your conditioning treatment.
DIRECTIONS TO USE
Start with Hair bath (shampoo rinse) followed by hair masque DC. Apply Hair Silk on wet hair to detangle, soften and prep for styling. Use on dry hair to refresh, hyrdate and soften bed heard. Use Hair Silk to LOC in moisture! Use the Cashmere + Caviar products in the order mentioned below .
L = Leave In (Hair Silk)
O = Oil ( Hair Serum)
C = Cream (Hair Gelle)
However for my limp hair, I don’t need all the styling products in one go so i skip either serum or gelle depending on how dry my hair is. Also, I do not use the masque every time I shampoo. It’s a once in 2 weeks routine for me.
Now let’s see how these products fair individually :

Review : The shampoo has a classic bubble nath fragrance and is a black gel in appearance. Being a sulphate free, low poo shampoo, it doesn’t produce any noticeable lather. That said, the shampoo could wash off my pre – poo oil and gave the scalp a perfectly cleansed feel. To be honest, I didn’t miss the lather at all. A definite thumbs-up this one is.

Review: The mask, with its super creamy texture and curated for kinky hair, isn’t heavy at all. I do use it in limited quantity and it leaves my hair soft but not limp. I use it only once in two weeks after shampoo and rinse off with plain water.It doesn’t leave behind any greasy residue unlike what I’d expected! A treat to sniff and use 😍
