It’s product review time! Lately, I’ve used the Curl Junkie Curl Rehab Moisturizing Treatment quite often to make sure my winter curls stay hydrated. Keeping them well moisturized is even more important now that my hair is quite long. In this post I’ll describe how I apply it and why I like the Curl Junkie Curl Rehab so much.
Why I like the Curl Junkie Curl Rehab:
- It’s really moisturizing (just like a deep conditioner is supposed to be)
- It minimizes frizz
- My curls form nice clumps when using this product
See for yourself:
What I don’t like about the Curl Junkie Curl Rehab:
- I think it smells awful, just like medicine… (but luckily the smell disappears after rinsing it!)
How I applied the Curl Junkie Curl Rehab Treatment
After combing my curls with my favorite detangler – the KCKT – I apply a generous amount of the Curls Rehab to my curls. To make sure it covers all of my curls, I finger comb my curls once more until I feel like all of my curls are covered with product. I then leave it in for a few minutes before completely rinsing it. All in all the Curl Junkie Curl Rehab Treatment is in my curls for about 5 minutes. If your curls are lacking a lot of moisture you might consider to additionally apply some heat while the product is in your curls.
How often to use the Curl Junkie Curl Rehab Treatment
Just like any other deep conditioner, the Curl Rehab Treatment moisturizes your curls very well. Which is why I only use it about once every two weeks. Depending on your curls’ state (e.g. using a lot of heat on them) and protein-moisture-balance you need to deep condition them more or less often. Be careful not to over-condition your curls: If your curls don’t shine and seem to be weightless, but seem to be heavy and just hang down lifelessly after deep-conditioning them you might have over-conditioned your curls (try a protein treatment to get them back to normal).
I’ll definitely use this deep conditioner on a regular basis to provide my curls with enough moisture!
