So after eyeing up the previous boxes on Instagram, I decided to sign up for the monthly recurring subscription £20 /month + £3.90 p&p.
My first box was February…
The box is beautifully packaged and presented.
This month is a Flora & Curl exclusive. I’ve never heard of this brand so I was pretty excited to see the contents. There are 4 full sized products and I love the bright and floral product labels.
Flora & Curl creates botanically powered active haircare solutions for women with naturally dry textured hair (from loosely curled to tightly curled textured hair). Flora & Curl says nature to curls. It is a philosophy of our nature and essence, just as we are meant to be.
First up is…
Harsh detergents in conventional shampoos for curly hair tend to leave textured hair feeling stripped, while sulfate-free shampoos often come without any additional therapeutic benefits.
This nutrient-rich botanical shampoo creates a deeply invigorating lather to cleanse hair and scalp and rid it of impurities, dirt and build up. It is fortified with moisturising Aloe Vera, revitalising oils of Morrocan Argan Oil and Sweet Almond Oil to restore the natural balance of the scalp and return natural sheen.
A nutritive blend of coconut-derived cleansers, strengthening wheat proteins and scalp balancing citrus oils all work to leave scalp feeling fresh, clean, and fragrant! Unlike conventional shampoo, it is 100% free from drying silicones, mineral oils or sulfates.
The perfect shampoo for strengthening and restoring naturally dry textured hair.
First of all this shampoo smells amazing…it has a sweet citrusy scent which is uplifting. The consistency is quite runny but it lathers well. It leaves my hair squeaky clean but not stripped which is great.
Textured, curly hair is naturally dry and not infusing adequate moisture daily means that ends are more prone to breakage, making moisture a key component of a healthy hair routine. Floral Hydration is formulated with the best nature has to offer dry hair!
A thirst relief formula that is an active blend of herbal essences, organic Rose Damask Flower Water, Aloe Vera and handpicked bioactive floral oils to deeply penetrate into the strands, saturating it with essential moisture whilst minimising reversion. Brushing and styling become easier, hair is instantly softened and sleek and hair brittleness is reduced with this daily rinse-free moisturising spray.
Unlike spraying hair with tap water or hard water which contain chlorine and various metal minerals, this botanical mist moisturises the way nature intended. Your hair generously receives all the potent benefits, without build up from synthethic additives.
Infused with Jasmine oil, this exquisite oil yields natural healing properties that help reduce dandruff and purify the scalp of bacteria and the accumulation of waste products.
- Ph balancing organic Rose flower water
- Scalp stimulating Lavender
- Scalp soothing Sandalwood
Summary of benefits:
- BOTANICAL HYDRATION – Replenishes moisture and instantly conditions dry hair using plant nutrients
- SOFTENING – Softens and reduces strand brittleness
- REVITALISING – Perfect for refreshing curls throughout the week with low reversion
- MANAGEABILITY – Delivers manageability and ease of styling
- Perfect formula for extra dry, brittle hair
My thirsty hair definitely needed this hair mist. It helps soften and hydrate my hair and also works well to refresh my curls without weighing my hair down. Plus it smells so…good and leaves my hair gorgeously scented all day.
A botanical detangling conditioner that adds softness and slip to hair to release knots and tangles to make combing and styling manageability easier. It also serves as a leave-in moisturiser with a blend of Coconut and Calendula Oils, perfect for restoring hair’s healthy moisture balance.
This moisturising leave-in conditioner is powerfully fortified with Organic Rose Damask Water, and infused with Honey, Sunflower, Oat, Marigold and Vitamin B to smoothen the cuticle, add shine, definition and ease manageability, whilst promoting hair softness.
It helps the comb and fingers glide through hair, leaving it tangle-free and protected from breakage. A great detangling solution for all textures.
- DETANGLES – Formulated to smoothen the hair cuticle and remove knots, snarls and tangles from wavy, curly and kinky-textured hair.
- SMOOTHENING – Vitamin B (Panthenol) enhances natural sheen on the cuticles to create high shine and silkiness while reducing frizz and preventing knots and tangles from forming.
- DAILY CONDITIONING – Rose Water adds moisture, slip and shine back into the hair for everyday hydration without weight.
- Perfect formula for dry and wash-day ready hair
I absolutely love this leave-in and use it as a detangler and styler. It has 2 of my favourite essential oils (Ylang ylang and May Chang) so you know it smells divine. The consistency is creamy and light and at first I wasn’t sure it would deliver adequate moisture to my thick kinky curls, however I was pleasantly surprised.
It literally melts into my hair leaving it super soft, moisturised and tangle free. My hair stays moisturised for days and when I reapply I don’t get the dreaded product ‘build-up’.
The results from using it as a styler were amazing. I got incredible frizz free definition from my twist out.
The African Citrus Superfruit Hair Oil contains the perfect blend of over 10 potent plant oils that nourish split ends, tame frizzy hair, provide heat protection, repair damaged hair and add shine. It leaves hair feeling softer and shiny while giving off the sweetest, invigorating scent found in no other hair product. This supercharged oil infuses the rarest African plant oils that are prized for their nutrient rich layer, to create the ultimate hair protective elixir. It is concocted with the Saharan protective oils of Jojoba Oil, Kalahari Oil and Baobab Oil to restore hair’s natural sheen.
We bring you a nourishing hair oil made without traditional liquid silicones such as cyclopentasiloxane to give you a true natural shine. Instead, this concentrated hair wellness blend is fortified by the delicious superfruit oils of Papaya Oil, Avocado Oil and Watermelon Oil. Moisture is sealed in, helping your curls retain moisture, whilst enveloping each strand in an invisible, non-greasy, protective layer. An everyday hair essential for healthy hair protection!

This oil is light weight and penetrates the hair strands without leaving it weighed down or greasy. It helps to seal in moisture and leaves my hair silky soft, shiny and less frizzy.
You know I love a good multi-tasking product… it can also be used as a pre-poo treatment, hot oil treatment, frizz taming serum and protect hair against damage caused by the sun, sea and chlorinated water.
The scent is similar to the shampoo…sweet and citrusy.
I have to say my first box is pretty impressive with a value of £83 and I’m so happy that I discovered Flora & Curl.
I’m very impressed with how well they performed and all the products smell so so good. There’s also a code for 15% off your next purchase online at floracurl.com so I’ve got my eye on the Clay Wash and Hair Butter Concentrate.
