Curly Girl Tries: Hello Curls Define & Reshape Curl Primer*

*product was gifted but all opinions are my own

When it comes to haircare, I feel like I have been winging it my whole life. As a teen, I would use whatever shampoo and conditioner my mum bought (usually Loreal) and then brush it a lot. I would occasionally spritz the ends with a little detangler when it was feeling dry (aka always) and let's not go into my straightening phase. It may have already become apparent to you but, yeah, I had no idea how to deal with curly hair and I was doing everything wrong. It was only when YouTube came around that I came across curly hair routine videos and actually got some idea of what I was supposed to be doing. I threw my paddle brush in the bin and invested in some different oils to try on my crispy ends.

Since then, I have experimented with all types of products. I have dabbled in the more specialist side of curly hair products but I found that most of those products are too heavy for my hair and just weight my curls down. I have also tried more mainstream products that people say are great for curly hair like Aussie but I found most of those a bit lacking in the moisture department. Basically, my hair is a whole drama queen.

So, when Noughty Haircare got in touch about their new curly hair product, I was excited to give it a go. I had previously tried their range for wavy hair and liked the formula but didn't find that it defined my curls quite as much as I would have liked so I wanted to see how this product would work as it is more catered to my hair type than the wavy range.

I have used this a few times over the last few weeks and I can safely say that it is a great product - especially for £8.99. It is vegan, cruelty free, and 97% natural which I love but also it does help define my curls. I would say that, as this is more of a water based kinda spray, it is great to rejuvenate your curls between washes and stop them from getting dry or from falling out. It has a gorgeous scent so I love that about it too but I would say that it probably isn't moisturising enough for me to use directly post-wash unless it was in conjunction with my usual oils and mousses.

Overall, this product would get an 8/10 from me because it does give my curls more volume and bounce between washes but it isn't enough of an all-rounder that I could retire all my other products and only use this one. It does enhance my current routine though and it makes my hair look better than it was looking before so I will definitely keep this product in my rotation and possibly repurchase it in the future too. And, I have to add, it is awesome to see more vegan-friendly product become available to us curly girls.
