Product Review: Hair Rules Kinky Curling Cream


Recently, I rediscovered that I had a bit of Hair Rules Kinky Curling Cream left in my stash so I decided to give it a go again.  Unfortunately, it was definitely a miss for me.  Read below for my full review and experience with Hair Rules Kinky Curling Cream.

Packaging: As you can see from the image above, the curling cream comes in a white, plastic bottle which is good for those who tend to have butterfingers…like me!  The design is more geometric than other brands which made it stand out on the retail shelf. It has a pretty clean design which I can definitely appreciate as I’m pretty minimalist when it comes to designs.  So far so good.

Consistency: There are two very important parts of the packaging that help compliment the thick, creamy nature of the product.  The squeezable plastic bottle and wide spout squeeze top greatly help with ease of use. The cream itself is a really awesomely-thick consistency which seems great for super thick hair like mine.

Smell:  I found the smell of the cream super sweet but pleasant.  It does linger a bit so that’s not something I was a huge fan of.

Price: At $20 for 8 ounces, this product is pretty expensive especially for its less than stellar ingredient list.  Generally, this is definitely too much for a hair product for me.  If the product ran for $20 for 16 ounces, I would be more comfortable spending that amount, but unfortunately for 16 ounces you have to shell out $33!  Too bad it doesn’t perform small miracles.

Overall Impression:  There are things that I really liked about this product, mainly the consistency and packaging but unfortunately that is not enough to make me repurchase what was otherwise a bad product for my hair.  I used the product according to package instructions and ended up with dry, hard and scraggly hair, and this was after several attempts.  The last time I tried it, I washed it out immediately.  Needless to say, I will not be repurchasing this one.  I don’t often have bad experiences with hair products, but I will say that this ended up in the garbage before it was empty.  It’s too bad, after seeing the advertisements online I really wanted to like it!
