 Don’t Believe the Hype? Believe it.

 Final Thoughts: I purchased a sample of this product along with a sample of the Test Whip (review here). So you guys already know that I had nothing but great things to say about the Test Whip and the CurlyCue Renew is another great product! The consistency of the product is creamy but not too thick. The smell is so yummy! It smells just like cake mix. I applied the product and sat under the hair dryer for 45 minutes. When I rinsed the product out I was left with super soft, incredibly moisturized hair. My hair felt so good that I was annoyed I hadn’t purchased the full size.

Don’t Believe the Hype?  Believe it!

Final Thoughts: I got a sample of this product in my July curlBOX and I have to say that I really like it; so much so that I have been using it sparingly to try to preserve the rest of the sample. I have used the product underneath a curl cream, a butter and a gel with great success each time  Lola felt moisturized and soft.  I am definitely going to buy the full size product and you should too.

Have you tried this or any other Shea Radiance hair products? What did you think?
