“Coconut Shea All Natural Curl Defining Crème is a humidity-resistant formulation designed to refine and separate curls and waves. This product infuses moisture to strengthen hair, proveds frizz control, and optimizes style definition.”
Naturally kinky and tightly coiled hair textures require moisture more than any other texture due to its unique structure. Natural oils are produced from the scalp and can easily travel down the hair shaft of straighter hair types; not so much for naturals. We seek out the best products that will not only give our hair defined styles but will also provide hold without drying out hair or leaving heavy with residual. In walks Eden Body Works All Natural Curl Defining Crème.
Eden Body Works is a line that was pretty new to me, not that I’ve never seen or heard of the brand it’s just not a product that I’ve tried before. Like most naturals, when I find a product that works for my natural hair I tend to stick to using the same product on a consistent basis. I tend to use a lot of products from the same line as well and I’ve found that most products within a single line tend to complement each other extremely well. In fact, most product lines actually create their products to do just that.
It just so happens that while one of my staple products was sold out and I needed something quickly, I picked up the Eden Body Works Crème in my local Sally’s Beauty Supply. After perusing the aisle for almost 25-minutes reading labels and checking online reviews I decided to give Eden Body Works a try. I couldn’t leave the store without opening the jar and taking a whiff before heading to the register. There were three things that influenced my decision in purchasing the Eden Body Works Curl Defining Crème; price, fragrance and ingredients.
The 16 fluid ounce jar cost less than $9 for the 16 fluid ounce jar, which is a little less than $.57 per ounce. In my book, that is an extremely affordable price considering some of their competitors’ prices which are much higher, and can even cost well over $1 per ounce. The fragrance is light and has a faint distinction of coconut crème. Even if you’re not a fan of coconut the smell becomes even lighter once completely dry.
Another thing that I can be pleased about with the Curling Crème is that it contains all natural ingredients. It’s also cruelty free, and free from sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, and dyes. The star player of the crème is water so if your hair doesn’t respond well to water-based creams then you may want to go for more of an oil or butter-based crème instead.
The Eden Body Works Curl Defining Crème contains highly beneficial ingredients, with its star players being:
Coconut oil– helps to nourish the hair follicles, strengthen hair strands
Aloe Vera– helps treat hair loss, dandruff, and removes dead skin cells. Also restores pH level of hair.
Avocado Oil– fatty oil that moisturizes, and strengthens hair strands
Jojoba Oil– the only oil that closely mimics the sebum that your natural hair produces
Keratin Amino Acids– helps to treat hair loss and prevent thinning hair
Hydrolyzed Silk– one of the world’s strongest natural fibers. Improves hair elasticity, shine and strengthens the hair follicle.
Styling with Eden Body Works All Natural Curl Defining Crème proves that it works for an array of hairstyles. It is rated as “medium hold” and gives phenomenal results when trying to achieve a defined style such as a twist-out or braid-out. The Curl Defining Crème can also be used to achieve a defined and moisturized Wash-and-Go style. Instead of using drying holding gels, the Curl Defining Crème provides almost the same hold with softer, popping curls being the end result.
Trust me when I say a little bit goes a long way. For naturals with finer hair, all you need is a little bit to achieve your style of choice. Using too much could leave a film on the hair so be sure not to use a heavy hand.
Overall, the results of using the Curl Defining Crème have proven to be a winner. You get a very decent amount of product for the cost, all-natural and beneficial ingredients and a soft, defined natural hair style. The Eden Body Works All Natural Curl Defining Crème has definitely exceeded my expectations.
