As someone who was born with pin-straight hair that refuses to hold a curl, I’ve harbored a deep, burning desire for princess waves for as long as I can remember. Needless to say, I had absolutely no idea how much time and effort is often required to make natural curls look as beautifully bouncy and glossy as they do.
When Curl Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions landed on my desk, I saw it as an excuse to launch a mini-investigation into the lives of the curly-haired gals that I envied. After hunting down a couple of Birchbox staffers with wavy locks, I handed them a sample of Curl Keeper to try for themselves.
Our community manager and resident curl expert Rachel is a fan of Curl Keeper’s scent and how quickly the water-based formula absorbs into her hair. The treatment keeps her tousled waves manageable and frizz-free, and made styling a cinch.
Our email marketing specialist Danielle likes that the product isn’t overly sticky or strongly-scented. Major bonus? It calms down frizz without weighing her hair down.
The verdict? Curl Keeper does a great job of controlling frizz and enhancing curl definition without leaving hair with feeling heavy and packed with product. It’s also silicone-free, which means hair won’t become dull and dry over time since silicone seals in moisture. The water-based formula makes Curl Keeper easy to use everyday and won’t lead to gunky buildup, and best of all, it reactivates with water so it’ll keep frizz calm even in humid or moisture-filled environments.
