I am really excited to share these next two products because I have been eyeing this brand for awhile hehe. I first discovered WonderCurl at the grand opening of N Natural Hair Studio and I knew I wanted to try it out eventually. I am a sucker for cute logos and nice packaging! Lol So I went out on a whim and contacted WonderCurl to see if I could do a review and they graciously agreed and sent me their newest product, the Polishing Pomade.
It’s crazy how things are timed perfectly… WonderCurl hosted a meet-up the other week (held at N Natural Hair Salon!) and It happened to be the week after I received the product to review. So I figured I’d wait and her to learn more about the products at the meetup before I tried them out. I ended up buying the Butter Than Love Whipped at the meetup hehe So I will devote this post to both products :o)
Oh and here’s a couple shots from the meetup. The owner of WonderCurl, Scarlett, gave a live tutorial using a few of her products. I also even got to meet a few of my readers/followers!
I must say it was so nice meeting Scarlett! She is such a sweet person which a great spirit. Can I also tell you how gorgeous she is in person?! Ugh lol and her hair….BEAUTIFUL! She had the ends dyed green which looked dope.
So my product experiences…. I’ll start with the Pomade. It retails for $5 for 2 oz. This pomade is not like your typical solid pomade like Dax or Murry’s. It contains no wax or any of that hard stuff. It is really smooth, creamy, pudding-ey texture. When you rub it in it feels like a thick oil. As far as the consistency, the first thing that came to mind was the Koils by Nature Peppermint Gel but not as liquidy.
It smells soooo yummy! WonderCurl teamed up with a company called YumYum Candle to make the yummy mango coconutty scent and WonderCurl is also selling a solid perfume in the same scent! Cute :o)
Put the Polishing Pomade in your hair for super shine and hair that smells wonderful and paired with the Solid Perfume in the matching scent, you are now ready for summer.
Caprylic Glyceride, Soybean oil, Avocado butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Elaesis guineesis (Palm) Kernel Oil, Azadirachta indica (Neem) Oil, Fragrance. NO PETROLEUM, MINERAL OIL, BEESWAX, LANOLIN, PARABENS, GLYCERIN, SULFATES OR SILICONES
So the way I used the pomade was to polish my edges when I did my normal twists. This was the best method of use for my hair. It gave a semi-good hold, it didn’t hold like a gel or anything but my edges are really thick and this did a good job of blending them with the rest of my hair. It also made them really soft and shiny. I was gifted only a small sample size (I think it’s about 1 oz.) but I only needed to use a little bit so it should last me a few uses. I think this would be great if you have finer hair/thinner edges as it would really tame any flyaways. I also used a little bit over the length of my hair when fluffing to add shine and to make my hair smell good :o)
Up next is the Butter Than Love Whipped. It’s a thick, fluffy, cake frosting-like, shea hair butter. It retails for $12 for 4 oz. or $20 for 8 oz. I bought mine from N Natural Hair Studio and they only sold the 8 oz. size but you can check out the WonderCurl website to see other retailers or to buy online. Oh and check this out, I just got this in my email! I guess it is in the new CurlKit if you subscribe to it :o)
Hehe just thought I would share the love :o)
So back to the matter at hand, the Butter Than Love…..
Butter than Love Hair Whipped is a dream for parched curls. This thick and rich cream is loaded with oils and butters resulting in hair that is full of life and bounce.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, Caprylic/Capric/Stearic Glycerides, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Acrylates/C-10 Alkyl Acrylates, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance.

I really love the Butter Than Love and I am learning that my hair really responds best to thick, WHIPPED shea-based products. They are pretty much the only products that really seal in moisture and keep it super soft and supple. I also noticed my hair loves products that contain castor oil, which is also in the ingrediants. One thing though, the BTL is unscented which kinda made me sad because I LOVE hair products that smell good. Scarlett mentioned that it used to have a honeysuckle scent but her customers said it was too overbearing so she catered to her customers needs and made them unscented! Can’t be mad at that! It’s still a great product. My hair stayed moisturized all week and I didn’t reapply any product, just spritzed my hair when I re-twisted. It REALLY sealed the water in my hair each time I re-twisted.
This product also comes in a Pudding and the difference between the two is that the pudding is lighter and of course more pudding like. It applies more “wet” if that makes sense. Think Shea Moisture Curl Smoothie. It doesn’t seal as well as the whipped because it is not as thick. I’d love to try the pudding one day to see what the difference is in my hair.
Now I am going to give you a disclaimer about the pics of my hair on the first day, I really don’t know what the heck I did but my twists came out a bit crazy lol and I say this to say that it was ME and NOT the product lol
And here are pics of my hair after I spritzed and re-twisted. I think it was on the 3rd day
You can really see how the moisture is sealed in and how shiny my hair is. I am so glad I discovered this! I will put this on my top favs list for sure. I really want to try another WonderCurl product, the Get Set Hair Jelly. This was the product Scarlett demonstrated at the meetup. I also heard some ladies like it better than Kinky Curly Curling Custard….and you know how I feel about KCCC lol but I am more than open to giving it a shot because I love the other WonderCurl products thus far!
