    Jane Carter Curls To Go! | Product Review

    February 7, 2017

    There is nothing better than finding an entire line of hair products that work perfectly for your hair on the very first try. Before last weekend, I didn’t believe that was even possible for me until I tried out Jane Carter’s brand new Curls to Go! line *insert heart eye emojis*. After nailing my first wash and go with this collection, I couldn’t wait to share my results and feedback on each product especially designed for super curly and coily curls – finally!

    Since trying out Jane Carter’s Healthy Hair collection, I have been a major fan of their products and overall mission, and Curls to Go! was a perfect follow up and shout out curls of every kind. Currently this collection is available on their website at www.janecartersolution.com and at select stores across the United States that you can find on their website. I wanted to do another full review, so below you can find more details about each product along with my talk-through review and demo on my YouTube channel.

    Products Included
    • Curl Drench Cleansing Co Wash
    • Un-Tangle Me Weightless Leave-In
    • Curl Cocktail
    • Coiling All Curls Elongating Gel
    • Shine On Curl Elixir
    • Mist Me Over Curl Hydrator

    Cleanser


    Curl Drench Cleansing Co Wash

    What It Does –
    • This sulfate-free co-wash is infused with restorative botanicals and jojoba oil, giving it a great slip in addition to providing a gentle, moisturizing cleanse for the hair and scalp
    • 2-in-1 cleansing conditioner can be used in lieu of a separate shampoo and conditioner
    • Softens, moisturizes, and detangles hair
    Results | Final Thoughts –

    “Curl Drench” completely lived up to its name as this product left my hair feeling smooth and ultra-moisturized. It has amazing slip and is truly a cleansing conditioner as promised – I love the gentle lather of this product.  It was very easy to work into my scalp similarly to their Healthy Hair cleansing co-wash, but this product takes the moisturization to the next level so only a small, quarter-size amount is needed per application (of course you can work your way up from there as needed). I love that a little goes a long way with this product but I’m confident I will repurchase this once I work my way down to the bottom. This is the best 2-in-1 product I have ever used, and it smells amazing

    Leave-In Conditioner


    Un-Tangle Me Weightless Leave-In

    What It Does –
    • Incredible slip makes this leave-in conditioner a powerful detangler
    • The infusion of Mango Butter & botanical oils make it a perfect follow up to the co-wash
    Results | Final Thoughts –

    This product instantly jumped to the top of my Leave-In Conditioner Hall of Fame with its incredible slip. I only needed to use about a dime-size of this product and was able to rake my fingers through large sections of my hair with ease (there’s a first time for everything)! This leave-in cut my detangling time in half, has a beautiful fragrance, and really helped define and moisturize my hair. This is product will definitely remain in my arsenal. 

    Stylers


    Curl Cocktail

    What It Does –
    • Provides definition, reduces frizz, restores moisture, and reduces breakage
    • Infused with Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, and Aloe for shine without weighing down curls
    Results | Final Thoughts –

    This styling cream did an amazing job of clumping my curls together and creating beautiful definition that lasted. It’s been really difficult for me to find a styling cream that defines frizzy, coily curls, but Curl Cocktail fit the bill in every way. All I needed was a small amount and my curls popped with ease. I love this product and found that it built perfectly on top of the leave-in conditioner for reinforced definition. 

    Coiling All Curls Elongating Gel

    What It Does –
    • Seals in moisture and provides extra hold for curly definition while reducing shrinkage
    • Infused with Aloe & Coconut Oil for extra moisture and shine
    • Incredible definition for wash and go styling for super curly and coily hair
    Results | Final Thoughts –

    This hair gel is absolutely incredible. It has a very unique texture in that it’s thick but still slippery which is the perfect consistency for stubborn coily curls. The ingredients of this product really help elongate and define the curl, and after seeing results from all different hair textures, this gel has the ability to define 3c, 4a, 4b, and 4c curl patterns. This is definitely the most powerful hair gel I’ve seen in the best way possible! I’m confident this formula would provide amazing hold for rod styling, braid-outs, and twist-outs as well. 

    Shine On Curl Elixir

    What It Does –
    • Conditions and seals in shine to hydrate hair
    • Infused with Argan & Macadamia Oil
    Results | Final Thoughts –

    This oil is extremely light, fragrant and effective, and little goes a long way. After applying the Curl Cocktail and the hair gel, I used two sprays for the last step of the LCO (leave-in, cream, oil) method. I found that spraying this into my hand and then applying it to my hair was the best way to lock in the moisture, but this oil is so light that even lightly misting it over your hair on Day 2 or Day 3 would be a great way to boost shine. This is a fantastic oil and left my curls with a very full and moisturized sheen (not greasy at all)!

    Mist Me Over Curl Hydrator

    What It Does –
    • Mist instantly rehydrates hair and reactivates frizzy curls – perfect for Day 2 hair and beyond
    • Infused with Shea Butter & Botanical Oils
    Results | Final Thoughts –

    The Curl Hydrator is the perfect finishing touch to this product line, and is perfect for Day 2 and Day 3 hair when the frizz likes to show up. This product allows you to extend your wash and go styles for a couple days longer when used properly (check out my demo below to see how I refresh my curls)! It smells just as amazing as the rest of the line and is a great way to keep the curls moisturized and defined throughout the week.
