I hate to do this to the product junkies so close to Christmas, but there is a new kinky curly hair product you gotta try. Beija Flor Naturals’ Creme Brulee for Kinks, Curls, and Coils is truly one of the best curl products I’ve used this year.

PRODUCT : Creme Brulee for Kinks, Curls, and Coils, 8 oz., $12.95. This is an everyday leave-in moisturizer. In total, an infusion of 13 premium natural ingredients create a light cream texture that is perfect for all natural hair types.
APPLICATION: After co-washing my hair with Taliah Waajid Herb Enhancing Conditioner, I squeezed out excess water. I then applied the Licorice Root Scalp Elixir to scalp with fingers and massaged in. Next, I parted my damp hair in four sections (parted down the middle and from side to side). I applied a finger full of Creme Brulee for Kinks, Curls, and Coils to each section, from root to tip, concentrating on my ends. I instantly felt the product smoothing my hair strands. The Creme Brulee has a light whipped, creamy texture and a yummy, light cinnamon/nutmeg spice smell which dissipates after application.
RESULTS: The Creme Brulee for Kinks, Curls, and Coils absorbed instantly in my hair, smoothing my coily strands from root to tip. Even my fuzzy hairline behaved. After applying product to each section, I put my hair in a ponytail to airdry. No other product was necessary.
What I like about this product:
- A standalone product. No other product necessary.
- My hair was frizz free, soft, and defined.
- The Creme Brulee is nongreasy and doesn’t weigh down hair. I had plenty of bounce and movement.
VERDICT: The perfect curly hair product for me because I didn’t need any other products with it. Will definitely order more.
Other products I tried:
Hemp Buttercream, 8 oz., $12.00, 98% natural. A daily hair and body moisturizer that is concentrated, fast absorbing and lasts all day.
RESULTS: I have mild eczema and I purchased unscented Hemp Buttercream. It’s a great hair moisturizer, but an even better body butter. I used this product for bunning which works best when applied to wet hair. I slather this on after a shower and my skin stays moisturized and flake-free all day.
Licorice Root Scalp Elixir, $13.00. This product is made to combat dry, itchy, irritated scalp, reduce dandruff, stop hair loss and promote healthy hair growth.
RESULTS: This oil feels good on your scalp and soothes the itchies. The Licorice Root Scalp Elixir is also a great product for sealing ends.
Organic Whipped Shea Butter, 4 oz., $10.00. Our shea butter is whipped with nourishing oils such as coconut, and apricot oils for a creamy spreadable texture.
RESULTS: This whipped shea butter is a great face, hair AND body moisturizer. I love the light texture of this butter and it keeps skin hydrated all day.
