Review: I rinsed A's hair with warm water, poured a little Curlie Cutie Cleansing Cream in my hand, then gentled massaged it in circles on A's scalp. This shampoo is very moisturizing and has a nice lather. It was very easy to rinse out and smells amazing!

Review: After rinsing out
Curlie Cutie Cleansing Cream I applied a generous amount of Coconut Dream Conditioner in sections of A's hair. This conditioner was moisturizing and had a nice slip. I finger combed her hair first, then used a wide tooth comb on each section. I let it sit for a few minutes then rinsed.

Review: I actually sprayed a little of the Moist Curls Moisturizer in my hand, then applied it to each section of A's hair. It definitely helped me glide the Denman D3 brush through her curls very easily. A little of this product goes a very long way, so use sparingly. This stuff smells great! A said it smells like gum, watermelon, and yogurt. lol :)

Review: Finally, I applied Curl Gel-les'c to each section of A's hair. I only needed a small drop for each section. I am absolutely in love with Curl Gel-les'c! You may remember my review I did a while back on a small sample size of this product. A has gotten some of the best frizz free, defined curls from Gel-les'c.

Before & Afters:
In her before pictures I had taken down 5 big "bed time" braids. If you would like to see what her hair looks like washed, detangled, with no product left in, go here
In the picture below, she was swinging her hair back and forth, you can really see how defined and frizz free her curls were.
I am definitely impressed with Curly Q's. A's hair is soft, moisturized, and frizz free. She has volume, but not "too" much volume. Just fun, bouncy curls! Everything smells absolutely amazing! I think the prices are reasonable, especially considering you don't need much of any of the above products. A little goes a long way. I can see several of the above full size products lasting several months. I really wasn't sure how much I would like Curly Q's. I thought it would be too light for A's 4A curl type but that is not the case. I am loving it. If you would like to purchase Curls, Curly Q's, or It's-a-Curl products you can visit their website.
