Honey Curls is a product line specifically designed for children with curly hair. The company makes a conscious effort to avoid harmful ingredients in all of its products; they are are free of parabens, alcohol, and sulfates. All of their products are infused with nutrient-rich ingredients like Honey, Aloe, Coconut Oil, Green Tea, and Olive Oil. Trish, the owner of Honey Curls, recently sent me the Honey Curls Hair Honey Oil Blend to review. Knowing about these great ingredients, I was excited to try it in my two toddlers’ hair. And I admit… my hair too.
According to the product description,
[box_light]Good for the Hair and the Body, The Hair Honey Oil Blend is the perfect blend of nourishing oils infused with ingredients such as Honey, Canola Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Meadowfoam Seed oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Shea Oil, Borage Oil, Olea Europea Oil, (Olive) Oil, fractionated Coconut Oil, and Karanki and Organic Green Tea, Vitamin A, B, and E.

A glimpse of the ingredient list reveals that the Honey Curls Hair Honey Oil Blend has some great ingredients! The first ingredient is honey — a humectant — which attracts moisture to the hair. The remaining top five ingredients are Canola Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Meadowfoam Seed Oil. These oils have properties that restore hydration, impart shine, and prevent hair loss. What makes this oil blend unique is the inclusion of Borage Oil, Olea Europea Oil, and Karanaki and Organic Green Tea. I am well-versed on my oils, but I actually had to look up these other oils. Borage is antiflammatory and fatty; Olea Europea Oil prevents hair damage caused by brushing; and teas are known to noursish hair and strengthen hair follicles. Long story short, the creators of Honey Curls products have done their research.
To test these products, I tried these products over a two-week period in my daughters’ hair (age 1 and 2) — and my own. (I tend to use many of the same products as my children.) For reference, I have 4a hair that is very dense with thick strands. My 2 year old has 3c hair with normal strands, but it is very dense. And my 1 year old barely has any hair, but it is a head of soft curls. Whenever I use oils, I either add it to a moisturizing spritz of leave-in conditioner and water; or seal with oil after using a leave-in.
The verdict? I really love the oil blend! I’m very particular about the products I put in my hair and this definitely passed my test of scrutiny. The blend of oils made for a rich, emollient oil that was not too heavy. It is the perfect oil blend for various hair types. If you have ever used Avocado Oil — one of my favorite oils — it has the richness of that oil. This oil can be used in either the winter or summer months, but if your hair is particularly thick then you may use a product that is more like a grease in the winter months. My kids, on the other hand, can use this year round. I plan on using this as my oil of choice for the remainder of summer. If you are looking for a new quality product to try, I recommend checking it out.
