If I’m being honest the hardest part of having “natural hair” is finding the right products for your texture and your styling wants and needs. This requires a lot of trial and error . I’ve tested a few products over the past year and one line in particular that has worked well for me has been the Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil.
The Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil line is intended for thick curly hair and is meant to moisturize, reduce frizz and define curls, coils and waves. Also, note worthy is that the products are sulfate free and silicone free, and that their packaging is made from recycled plastic.
Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil – Shampoo
The shampoo was easy to work with. It lathered and worked through my strands nicely. It smelled like coconut deliciousness. After shampooing my hair noticeably felt not only cleaner but lighter, more bouncy and I could start seeing my curls were more defined.
Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil – Conditioner
The conditioner was a bit of a new experience for me. As naturals we watch YouTube videos and hear people talking about “slip” when using conditioners. The Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil conditioner did not have slip at first this was a huge negative for because slip was just something I was so programmed to need. However, as I worked the conditioner through my hair I noticed my hair was still quite easy to detangle with my fingers, then with my wide tooth combed. The lack of slip was more of a mental obstacle for me than a physical one. Upon rinsing the conditioner out of my hair I immediately noticed the difference. My hair felt soft, it had lots of body, my curls were more defined than before. So I was quite pleased with the result despite my initial reservations.
Note – the lack of “slip” is due to the fact that the conditioner is silicone free.
Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil – Curl Smoothie
The curl smoothie is by far my favourite product of the line. It, as does every other Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil product smells DELICIOUS! It’s easy to use. All you have to do is take quarter sized amounts of the product and rake it through sections of your hair. The tighter your curls, the smaller your sections should be to ensure max definition. I particularly love that though the smoothie is white it doesn’t leave a white residue or tint on your hear. It dries completely transparent unlike rival products made by other brands. The curl smoothie also leaves your hair feeling soft to touch for days and gives great curl definition.
All in all I was quite satisfied with the products and would definitely use again. Obviously, everyone’s hair type is different as responds to products differently, so I can only speak on how well this performed on my hair. Would love for you guys to try it out and let me know what the results were!
