I signed up for Curl Box, around the time I decided to transition from relaxed (chemically straightened) hair to naturally curly. I signed up because I am addicted to subscription boxes and mainly because I felt overwhelmed with all the hair care options out there. There are just so many products, all claiming to do something, I think I need. And for each of these products there are at least two videos on YouTube, saying good and negative things. I felt, the only way to discover what I needed for my hair would be to try various products until I figured out my routine. When I heard there was a subscription box for hair, I was all over it. My biggest issue with CurlBox in the cost $20.00 + $5.00 shipping. Are the boxes worth $20.00?
A very full box, but at first glance, I’m not feeling it’s worth what I paid for it.
Hawaiian Silky Hydrating Sleek Edge– This is for edge control and fly-aways. I will use this and this is full size. Value $4.99
Hawaiian Silky Hydrating Sleek Healing oil treatment- I will try this, I’m always up for an oil treatment. Value- $0.00 Free sample
Organic Hair Energizer– A hair growth booster- Now, who wouldn’t want to try something that will encourage hair growth? I’m in. Value- $1.00?
Curl Keeper– A water-based, weightless serum that keeps curls shiny, defined and frizz-free. If you read my Birchbox review, you will see I just got this sample from them too. I was debating if I was going to purchase the full-size, so it’s nice to get another sample to double check if I like it. Value $2.18
Hair Rules Conditioner and Hydrating finishing cream Value $6.75 total
Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1 Miracle Worker– I’ve heard good things about this product, I’m looking forward to trying it. Value $2.00
African Pride Olive Miracle Leave-in Conditioner- This is another one of those items I’m sure I’ll use. Not sure I would have ever looked at before getting it in my box. Value $2.99
I paid $25.00 for this box and the value is approximately $19.91. While $5.00 is for shipping, I wanted this box to have a value of at least $20.00. .09 cents, isn’t that bad. BUT, I think it could be better. While it’s nice to get a box full of affordable items, I would prefer to get some things I can’t easily find at a local hair store. Since it’s so close, I’m willing to give Curlbox another try. How about you? Were you happy with this month’s box?
