The CurlKit has been on my radar for a while now, and I finally decided to buy it.
CurlKit offers mostly natural hair products that cater to African American women and their hair types. It is actually a great way to keep trying products and staying up to date with everything that is coming out, which is pretty hard to keep up with.
The kit is $25 for 4 to 5 FULL-size products, which is a BARGAIN being a naturalista. We normally can get only 2 products, maybe 3 if the shampoo and conditioner are cheap enough at that price. My only concern when I did purchase it, “Was I really going to like what they send me? Are they going to send me bogus name brand products I never heard of?” I had a bunch of inquiring questions about CurlKit because unlike CurlBox, they are random products. With CurlBox you are aware of what you will be receiving, but it is super hard to get on the list with CurlBox. Nonetheless, I took a huge gamble on the kit.
What’s in the kit?
Before getting into the review of the kit, I want to list what I received in my first kit. Each kit comes with a “Curl Life”, a CurlKit publication that tells you what you received and helpful tips that correlate with the theme of the publication. For example, this month’s publication is about going global and travel. They provide tips when traveling and also some uses for the products that are in your kit.
I also noticed when searching for these products online, they aren’t that easily accessible. All were pretty much sold out or I wasn’t able to find at all, which I don’t know if CurlKit is giving discontinued products in their kits or if they are just getting exclusive items. I also noticed that I was receiving the same products people were receiving 2-3 years ago in their CurlKits because of reviews that come up when I search these products. So I’m pretty sure, some are discontinued items.

There was nothing on the pamphlet about TwistedSista. Instead, there was Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Leave-in Conditioner. There was a choice between the Leave-in and the Pudding Souffle. I did receive the TwistedSista De-Frizz Polishing Serum, $7.99, 5 fl. oz.

My First Impressions Review:
The kit took longer for this box to ship compared to the ONYX Box, but the wait was very much worth it. I was so excited when I saw what was in the box. The products were all stylers, which I am okay with. Stylers are hit and miss with working on everyone’s hair, but it also gives greater variety in products to provide to subscribers. I definitely wouldn’t have been mad to see a deep conditioner in the kit. I absolutely love to try deep conditioners. First off, the Eden Bodyworks made it so much better. I have been eyeing the brand for years, but nothing from the brand really interest me to try their products. So, I was excited to get try their pudding souffle. I have heard of Twisted Sista, but I don’t have as much access to the brand. I believe I may have seen it in CVS or a beauty supply store. I wasn’t too interested in it because I have not heard anything about the brand before. It will be interesting to see how well this product is as a finishing product. The last new product to me is the Ampro Pro Styl Vitamin E Oil. Never can be too excited to see oils in a kit. Ampro Pro Styl is famous for their gels from back in the day, and people still use their products faithfully. But, they haven’t been the best at providing HEALTHY products. So, this Vitamin E Oil was definitely new to me and made it interesting to see what I can do with it. I was concerned about the purity of the oil; it does contain fragrance and along with other items. I would have been happier to see that it only contained Vitamin E or along with other nutritious oils.
Overall, I was very impressed with CurlKit. Matter fact, I am impressed with the company overall. I received a customer courtesy call from CurlKit on the day my kit was delivered. They were calling to “Welcome me to the family” and making sure I understood the billing subscription process and if I had any questions. I was really impressed with that call. Even though when they did call and asked for me, I was like, “Who is this?” before confirming it was me. I thought it was somebody trying to scam! Goodness! Nonetheless, it was the idea that counted, and customer service goes a long way for me. It showed that they genuinely care about their customer’s needs and making sure they are informed of what CurlKit is about. I will continue my subscription with CurlKit. I hope the products get better and I may even make a “CurlKit” series out of it. Stay Tuned for that and reviews of each product.
