My First CurlyTreatsBOX 

I have been waiting for a subscription box for curly and natural hair for ages so when I heard about the launch of CurlyTreatsBOX, I quickly signed up.

CurlyTreatsBOX is a UK based subscription service for women and young girls with curly hair worldwide. Each month they deliver a box with a minimum of 4 hand-picked curly hair and beauty products straight to your door.

This helps you cut through the clutter in retail stores, to discover what products work for your naturally curly hair – with minimal effort.

It was created by Vinna Best, co-creator of Natural Hair Week UK events– an event series created to empower, encourage, educate and elevate people with naturally curly hair.

Experience the joy of naturally curly hair, with a monthly box filled with different shampoos, conditioners, moisturisers and more from around the world. CurlyTreatsBOX is designed to give you the opportunity to discover and try products that you have never heard of, heard of but never tried, or tried and loved. It’s an exclusive service with only a limited number of boxes available each month”.

There are different plans available to suit your budget.  You can cancel anytime.

  • 1 month- £25 per month
  • 3 Months – £72 (You save over £12)
  • 6 Months –£138.00 (You save over £24)
  • 1 year –£264.00 (You save over £35)

I signed up for the monthly subscription of £25, filled out a hair questionnaire and got my first box last week.

Here’s what’s in the box:

 

My first curly treats box

I was pleased to see all full-size products, the contents of this box are worth over £50 so definitely a bargain!

 

  • Dr Miracle’s Curl Care Rehydrating Shampoo (355ml)

 

I had high hopes for this shampoo – no sulfates, parabens, sodium & phthalate and low suds formula.

So its time to wash my hair, lets start with the smell.  It has an overbearing cherry menthol scent and kind of reminds me of ‘Tunes Cherry menthol lozenges’.  Not a fan of the scent!

 

It lathers well and after a few seconds my scalp felt overwhelmingly tingly.  This shampoo feels like its got a truck load of menthol.  It didn’t just tingle my scalp, my face was burning as I rinsed it out.

I usually love minty shampoos but this one is way too much for me!

Plus after rinsing my hair, it  felt stripped and was tangled.  No thank you Dr Miracle’s!

 

 

 

  • Dr Miracle’s Curl Care Nourishing Conditioner (473ml)

I was excited when I saw the size of this conditioner, however when I read the list of ingredients my heart sank.  The dreaded ‘silicones’ which is a NO-NO for my hair.

So after my epic failure with the shampoo, I decided to try the conditioner and again menthol overload.  It did nothing to detangle or condition my hair so I rinsed it off and used my regular conditioner.

 

  • Dr Miracle’s Curl Care Strong Hold Gel (237ml)

 

No surprises here – more cherry menthol,  you guessed it I didn’t like this product.

It did absolutely nothing for my curls.

I’ve used this supplement in the past and I only used it for a month.  

I  can’t really tell if it works as I was using other supplements at the same time.  I was happy to see it included in my box as it retails for around £25.    
      

          •  Cantu Coconut Curling Cream

I’ve used this product in the past and it works well to define and moisturise my curls.

 I was happy to see if included in the box.

I’m really disappointed I didn’t like any of the Dr Miracle’s curl care products but I’m glad I got to try them.

I’m looking forward to next month’s box.

Have you tried any of these products?  I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments.

Thanks for reading

Lola 🙂
