Today I am reviewing products from the
Natural Hair Care Line By Design Essentials
Natural Curl Cleanser (SULFATE-FREE) is a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo for natural hair.
Gentle cleansing shampoo Soy Bean strengthens the hair
High quality natural ingredients provide moisture and softness
Emits an excellent shine Ideal for all curl types
This is one of those products I love that can be used for different curl types. I am a type 2b/c, parts of my hair are very curly and parts are nearly straight. Milah is closer to a 4 b/c, like me she has different curl types in her hair. We both can use this awesome sulfate free shampoo on our hair types and have our curls come out looking lovely and moisturized.
Very Nice Clean Scent.

DE Natural Almond & Avocado Leave-In Conditioner is a lightweight, non-sticky moisturizing conditioner with nourishing botanicals and Vitamin E for hair health and detangling. Penetrates quickly. Instantly soften hair and smooth the cuticle for easy detangling. Natural oils improve manageability and provide luminous shine.
Milah smoothed this through her hair and found that it made detangling with her wet brush much easier! This leave in conditioner makes the hair feel so soft but it's light so it doesn't weigh hair down. It smells a bit like sweet tarts to me... I can't quite pinpoint it but it smells great!
Natural Curl Stretching Cream defines curls in natural styles for curly to tightly coiled hair types. Adds definition to extremely textured hair
Botanicals provides excellent moisture and intense shine
Smoothes and conditions textured hair Creates beautiful frizz controlled curls
This cream helped her curls look less frizzy and more defined. It's a good texture, close to that of pudding... add a bit of shine to dull looking curls! Helps curls to pop!
Natural Defining Creme Gel defines curls in natural styles for wavy to tightly curled hair types. Lightweight Gel Defines and separates curls
Botanicals provide excellent moisture and control frizz
Strengthens hair with a radiant shine Provides a medium to firm hold
This stuff smells like pudding to me, so delish! Milah did not want to wear twists this first week of school but I did do some twists in the back just to see how this Crème Gel would work and it does make some really pretty soft twists. It's not super heavy or to sticky so it would be perfect for a twist-out or braid-out or Bantu knots.
DE Natural HONEY AND SHEA Edge Tamer is a moisturizing, firmer-hold edge control gel designed for curly to coily hair that securely lays down the hairline.
Honey and Shea Butter add nourishment
Adds Brilliant Shine
Longer lasting, firm hold
We have affectionately nicknamed this "hair magic"! Milah has some short hair around her edges but she LOVES to wear a high bun. Till now we had never found anything that really would hold her edges and also help the very front and back of her hair stay slicked down. I use this to help slick some of her hair back and also lay her "baby hair" or edges down. It works so well!! WE LOVE IT! Our jar is almost gone and we will be purchasing more I the near future! We liked all of the design essential products we tried but I have to say this one was our favorite!!
