My First Voxbox

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

So I’ve been a member of the Influenster nation for a few months now and I’m pretty excited because I just got my first voxbox.

I received two full size products to use and give my honest review on.

Curl Scrunch Controlling Gel

Curl Scrunch Gel is a non-drying, nourishing formula containing curl-binding agents and silicone to lock in shape and shine, leaving you with gorgeous, defined curl control without the frizz. It states that it has an extra strong hold of three (3) and contains shea butter.

Tame the mane, rule the curl! Garnier Fructis Style Curl Scrunch Controlling Gel for curly hair creates defined, volume-controlled curls for lasting hold free of frizz, flyaways, and flaky residue. 

Ingredients: 1031008 P Aqua/Water, Pvp, Propylene Glycon, Alcohol Denat., Oleth-20, Phenoxyethanol, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Parfum/Fragrance, Polyquaternium-11, Dmdm Hydantoin, Peg/Ppg-22/24 Dimethicone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Pentasodium Pentetate, Limonene, Benzophenone-4 Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Peg-70 Mango Glycerides, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter/Shea Butter, Amyl Cinnamal. F.I.L.# D159597/2

How I Used: Instructions from the manufacturer states that you should take a quarter size amount of product, rub between palms, then apply to slightly damp/dry hair and style. For longer or thicker hair, or simply to get more “definition”, increase the amount of product used. I however, applied this product after applying the Garnier® Fructis® Curl Nourish Butter Cream Leave-In Treatment and definitely not in a dime size

Thoughts: This product was clear and the consistency of this gel was nothing like the Eco Style gel i’m used to. It was really light and a bit runny. So your girl already knew this product was not gon’ work for her multi-textured head especially the kinky coily areas. I was hoping to do a Wash N’ Go but this gel laughed at my coily nape. 🙄 I wasn’t even gon’ waste my time applying any more gel for that section when I knew it wasn’t gon’ do my coils any justice. Therefore, a twist-out is what I resorted to. Ain’t nothing that a good ol’ twist-out won’t save. Wasn’t giving up though because I knew the different curl patterns of my hair. As I got to the looser curl pattern of my hair I noticed that the gel enhanced my curls. I was like ok, I see how you work. In addition to that, this gel was so runny and watery-like you didn’t need to apply water because it was that moisturizing. My twists were so juicy I would just keep them in as a protective style but that wouldn’t allow me to give you my honest opinion on whether this product gives enough definition and hold. After my hair dried, it was so shiny and of course you could tell it was moisturized. I did two flat twists at the front of my hair and tied it down with my scarf. This gel did a good job at holding my edges down. After unraveling my twists, I had good definition (I should have gotten a picture of that but my photographer is not with me – my lil’ sister and I’ll probably break an arm trying get a head shot of  my curls). It gave me ease of separation which is something I usually do not do to my twist-outs. My curls were pillow soft and bouncy. I had so much movement. As it relates, to how long I was able to keep this twist out for before retwisting I would say about a week. I usually don’t allow my twist-outs to pass a week. I usually start doing a high puff at that time.

This is my hair after it dried. I want you guys to just look at that shine and suppleness. My twists were pillow soft.

Price: I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Nevertheless I see this product in stores for $4.99.

Is this product worth buying?: I mean, your girl gon’ be honest, the gel only works for parts of my hair and ain’t nobody got time to be applying two gels during a Wash N’ Go. It did good with my twist out but $4.99 for 6 oz of product that will only last me two wash days is not my idea of saving money in my pocket. Therefore, I definitely would not purchase this product. I need me a gel that works for all textures of my hair plus is easy on my pocket.

Want refined, smoother curls with healthy shine and bounce? Garnier Fructis Style Curl Renew is a milk spray that instantly redefines natural curls, without weighing down the hair. Our no-crunch, no drying-alcohol formula smoothes frizz, leaving curls soft and shiny.

Selected for its hydrating properties, our milk formula is infused with coconut oil. It conditions the hair’s surface, calms and smooths frizz. The result is renewed, nourished curls with the perfect amount of bounce and shine.

Ingredients: 1031352 F6 AQUA / WATER / EAU, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, GLYCERIN, ISOPROPYL MYRISTATE, COCOS NUCIFERA OIL / COCONUT OIL, CETYL ESTERS, AMODIMETHICONE, PHENOXYETHANOL, BEHENTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, PARFUM / FRAGRANCE, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII BUTTER / SHEA BUTTER, TRIDECETH-5, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, POLYQUATERNIUM-37, PROPYLENE GLYCOL DICAPRYLATE/DICAPRATE, VP/DIMETHYLAMINOETHYLMETHACRYLATE COPOLYMER, ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, TRIDECETH-10, PPG-1 TRIDECETH-6, LINALOOL, CITRIC ACID, LIMONENE, BENZYL ALCOHOL, BENZYL SALICYLATE, ACETIC ACID, CITRONELLOL, CI 19140 / YELLOW 5,CI 14700 / RED 4 F.I.L# D195704/1

How I Used: Instructions from the manufacturer states that you should apply to dry or towel-dried damp in even spritzes. Scrunch hair with hands to perfectly reshape curls. I, on the other hand, did apply this to my old twist out from the gel just to refresh my frizzy hair then retwisted.

Thoughts: This product is white and milky looking, liquid of course. This product definitely revived my frizzy hair after I retwisted my week old twist out. My hair was moisturized, shiny, bouncy and so soft.  I wish the bottle was bigger though because in one use I am almost through with the product.

Price: I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Nevertheless I see this product in stores for $4.99.

Is this product worth buying?: I would definitely suggest this product for when you want retwist or rebraid your old hair style but do not want to wet your hair with water.

Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Until next time,

Peace & Love.
