Soon after arriving in the Netherlands, I paid a visit to a brick and mortar store for curly hair products – my first one at that! The shop is called Megorgeous and is located in Amsterdam. I bought a couple of products including the Boucleme Curl Conditioner.
Description by Boucleme : Our super-hydrating curl conditioner is rich in Omegas 3, 6 and 9, vitamin E and antioxidants to strengthen the hair and protect it from environmental stressors. Our unique formulation penetrates deep into the hair cuticle, using virgin coconut, argan oil and aloe vera leaf actives to replenish much-needed moisture and bring shine to dull dry curls.
- Cetearyl Alcohol – Emollient (softens hair)
- Glycerin – Humectant
- Aloe Vera Leaf Extract
- Polyglyceryl-3 Dicitrate/Stearate – Emulsifier
- Argan Oil
- Coconut Oil
- Pomegranate Fruit Extract
- Linseed Oil
Ingredients after the first 5 to 8 ingredients are in negligible amounts and can be ignored if you are not trying to avoid any ingredient in particular – Read the Ingredients List, Not the Product Claims
Boucleme Curl Conditioner is missing a crucial ingredient that makes a good conditioner (Ingredients to Look for in a Conditioner) – a cationic surfactant that smoothens the cuticle and helps in detangling. Plus it is quite heavy in oils.
CG Friendly: Yes
Texture: The conditioner is a creamy product(too creamy for my liking) with very poor slip and detangling ability
Smell: It smells a bit weird and the smell stays in your hair even after a day
Here is a post with my full curly hair care routine – My curly hair routine.
+ I don’t have any positives to say about Boucleme Curl Conditioner
– It has very poor slip and detangling ability. It takes me a really long time to detangle and more often than not, I end up adding some other conditioner.
– Frizz isn’t controlled as much as a good condiitoner would normally do
– It’s on the oilier side and thus did not make my wavy-curly hair that happy
In short: Boucleme Curl Conditioner is not a great condiitoner because of it’s poor slip and detangling ability. It is also quite heavy. So I now use a pea sized as a leave in after washing to empty the bottle.
