Product Review: Curls Passion Fruit Control Paste

If you haven't caught on yet, I am 100% a PJ (or product junkie).  I love to try new products in order to find what works best for my hair.  I was out of town a few weeks ago and I forgot my control paste!  Normally this would be the end of the world but luckily I was with a few other natural friends and I was able to borrower my friends Curls Passion Fruit Control Paste.  I immediately fell in love with the scent but since I only used the product for two days, I wanted to buy it to truly get a feel for it.  I was able to find the product at my local target for $7.99.

The Curls website makes the following claim: Effortless, Frizz Free Curls for multi-ethnic women and girls.  Smooth out and slick down unruly edges, tame frizzy, out of control curls, and add amazing sheen in one step! Formulated with pure goodness, pure Passion Fruit Oil, Shea Butter, & Mango Seed Butter, Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste is the go to product for curlies demanding perfectly coiffed curls.

I used the control paste for a few different hairstyles.  First, I used it to lay my edges for a high bun on an old two strand twist out.  Initially my hair laid down well but after a couple of hours my edges were no longer slick.  I also used the control paste in order to slick back my edges while doing a flat twist out.  I was very pleased and it kept my hair looking fresh.  I also used the product to smooth down some of the frizzy curls on the 2nd and 3rd days of my flexi rod set.  I was pleased with using the product this way.  It made my 2nd and 3rd day curls look like they were done professionally.

So, you are probably wondering, would I buy this product again?  I don't think I will.  Although I have continued to use the product when pinning back my edges, it can not be considered a go-to or all purpose product.  Eco Styler Gel can do a better job for many purposes and a 16oz container can be found for about $3.  Also, Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Edge control works very well and a 2.25 oz bottle can be found for less than $5.
