Review || Boots Curl Creme.

Boots 'Essentials' Curl Creme.

Whilst wondering the aisles of Boots a short while back I came across Boots 'Essentials' Curl Creme. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it contained no silicones or sulfates so I decided to give it a go! Costing only £1.89 it is very budget friendly!

The bottle claims 'natural control and defines' and 'controls and nourishes to smooth away frizziness, enhance shine and enhance your curl without weighing it down'. I really do think that it does a good job to live up to its claims. The curls were defined and springy and frizz was definitely under control. It does add a little weight to the hair, which some like and other don't, but I think it is a happy medium. It adds a little weight but my curls are still springy and bouncy. I often notice with products that my hair feels a little dried out when I use them but the Curl Creme seems to avoid this nicely.  

The Curl Creme also lasted well overnight, which proves it has some staying power. My curls were still defined the next day, frizz was still under control but my hair still had some volume. Throughout the day my hair still looked great and I noticed quite a few times that it was still looking nice and shiny. The ends needed a little pick me up at the end of the evening but I still think that it is impressive nonetheless. 

Whilst I love it there are some inevitable cons! Its easy to use a little too much, leaving you with some crunchy curls that won't scrunch out. Saying this, it did seem to fall out naturally during the day, so it wasn't a huge issue, just something to watch out for. The other con is that whilst it doesn't weigh down, it is a little heavy and I noticed it quite a bit throughout the day when I touched my hair. I will admit though that these are all problems that can be solved with a little bit of trial and error and most of them were minor concerns. 

I am a harsh critic as I am comparing it to the Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Holding Foam because it is the product I have been most recently using which considering it retails for around £23 isn't exactly a fair comparison. Although I am impressed as it still holds it own against it. Overall I am really impressed with this product! I would recommend highly as considering the price you have very little to lose!

Have you tried Boots Curl Creme yet?
