Kerastase Curl Ideal Review

Having curly hair has its perks as well as its downfalls.  One of the downfalls is having frizzy hair where it doesn’t even form a beautiful curl that, deep down inside, you know you have.  Because of this, I was super excited to see that I had received the Kerastase Curl Ideal Cleansing Conditioner and Oleo-Curl Cream in my Spirit VoxBox.  I didn’t get to try out the product until a week ago.  I used it once but I think that is all I need for this review, which could also be a first impressions.

Kerastase Curl Ideal Review

Like I mentioned above, I was super excited to test out these two products, I could already picture myself with beautiful curls.  I decided to try it out the night before going to work because, if this product worked, I wanted to sport my beautiful curls in public.  

I typically use shampoo and conditioner when I shower so it was kind of weird to only be using a cleansing conditioner.  I poured a good amount of the product on my hand, but when I applied to my hair, it did not disperse so I applied more of the product.  This product didn’t make suds but that is probably because it’s a conditioner.  I really didn’t like it because I need to be able to disperse that product throughout my hair so I can feel like I’m really cleaning it.

Once I got out of the shower, I applied the curl cream and I was hoping this would help my hair get smoother so that I could comb it out.  I was wrong, I had the hardest time coming out my hair that time!!!!  Had I not had work the next day, I would have given up and thrown my hair in a bun.

I was kind of convinced that this would not be the product for me but I was still kind of hopeful that I would have nice curls when my hair dried, I was wrong!!  If anything, the next day my hair was not only frizzier than before but I also felt like my scalp was oily as if I had never washed my hair.

Overall, this product is a big no for me!! It didn’t make my hair look any better and combing it out was torture.  While it was not for me and I would really not recommend it at all, I looked for reviews and a lot of people like it.  There’s also a good amount of people that had the same sad results as I did.  The cleansing conditioner itself retails at $48, which is pretty expensive.  Like I said, I would not recommend it, especially at that price, but maybe if you get a sample, it might actually work for you.

Have you tried the Karastase Curl Ideal line?  What are your thoughts on these products?

  1. Sorry to hear it didn’t go well with the product… I know how hard it must be to find products for curly hair because my mom has this hair type..She has a lot of products lol…She found that the Morocco brand worked for her as well as KMS. She uses Moroccan oil curl defining, KMS Perfecting Lotion, and the KMS Wave Foam…Hope this helps 💗
