Curiosity struck when Loreal introduced their new EverCurl product line. The EverCurl Cleansing Conditioner worked amazing in my curls and defined them perfectly. Their styling products were next on my list and I decided to test the EverCurl Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel out to see if it worked as promised.
For starters, the price was right. At $8.99 it’s affordable enough that if I didn’t like it I wasn’t really losing out. The directions recommend that you use the EverCurl Hydracharge Shampoo and Conditioner first and then apply one to two pumps of the cream-gel to towel dried hair. My curly hair routine is different so after conditioning I applied a leave in conditioner prior to the cream-gel.
Because I section my hair when I apply my styling products, it took 9 pumps to cover my entire head (and my hair is thin!). The scent was nice, my curls were defined and the cream-gel didn’t weigh down my hair. However, I wasn’t impressed with the way my hair felt. My hair actually felt more dry (probably from the dimethicone) and slightly crunchy. (See photo below).
Overall, this wasn’t my favorite product from the line so far. Using 9 pumps of the styling cream-gel doesn’t bother me as much as my hair feeling dry and crunchy. Some might argue that if I followed the directions step by step the results might be different. Guess what? I did that too and my hair was still dry except also frizzy. I can’t speak for everyone’s hair, only mine. This might work fabulous on someone else. The EverCurl Hydracharge Leave-In Cream looks promising and it will be my next step towards curly hair heaven.
