Worst Curly Hair Products I Tried: Read Before Purchasing

Read Time: 4 minutes

As a curly girl we look to establish a routine that gives our hair its time to shine. When we get products that our hair love we quickly add them into our hair holy grails. The last thing we want to do is feel like we’ve wasted time or money on a hyped product that doesn’t work. I want to give you a heads up on the worst curly hair products I tried.

Listed Below Are 5 Of The Worst Curly Hair Products I’ve Tried:

Worst Curly Hair Products

As I Am

As I Am Tea Tree Line did absolutely nothing for my hair, but made it stripped and hard. My hair loves the original As I Am as well as the JBCO Line, so I thought I’d give tea tree a try. The tree tea oil lines promised to help dry and problematic scalp. There was a little bit of a tingly sensation when you apply the product it didn’t do much else afterwards. I wish I could scream from a mountain top “THESE PRODUCTS DID NOTHING FOR MY HAIR!” The products didn’t do anything to help with dry or problematic scalp. If anything it left my scalp feeling the exact same. So if you are a curly girl that suffers from dandruff or dry scalp, abort mission! Snobbies abort mission, you will thank me later.

Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils

I tried Aunt Jackie’s curl la la creme and loved it so, I decided to try a few other products from the line. It was by far the biggest waste of money I could have ever imagined. Don’t Shrink was supposed to be a gel that claims it will stop your hair from shrinking. It definitely did not do what it claimed it was going to do by stopping my hair from turning to the shrinkage levels that it normally does.

Quench left my hair feeling parched even though it is supposed to be a moisturizing leave in conditioner. Oh So Clean left my hair clean, but when it came time to apply my mask and detangle my hair it was one of the most difficult jobs I had to face in a while. My mask normally provides me with a lot of slip where I have the ability to finger detangle. I couldn’t even use my Denman brush, let alone finger comb after using that shampoo. However, I am willing to try Aunt Jackie’s again since I recently cut my hair.

Shea Moisture

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Line was a product that was way too heavy for my thin curls. My hair was left feeling greasy and limp after applying it and trying to do the LOC or LCO method. I got the same greasy limp results no matter what protective style I tried.

Worst Curly Hair Products

Creme Of Nature

Creme of Nature Aragan Oil Line used to be one of my go to products when I was a fresh natural. I liked the fact their shampoo had the slip of a conditioner for me to detangle my hair while I was in the shower. I’m not sure if Creme of Nature has changed the formula of the line, but trying the line recently caused my hair to say no thank you! I had to give up using this product. 

Worst Curly Hair Products


Deva Curl Starter kit is the only thing I have ever tried from the line. It was more than enough to make me not want to ever purchase full sized products. It was a suggestion from a hair stylist working in a Beauty Brands salon who claimed she stood by the products. She thought that I would love them too for my curly hair.

I tired the kit that came with No Poo Decadence, One Condition Decadence, Super Cream, and Ultra Defining Gel. My hair liked none of the products. The No Poo doesn’t lather and made me think my hair was still dirty. The One Condition Decadence did not give my hair the level of moisture that I look for when I am applying a conditioner. The super cream and gel left my hair and curls feeling a bit crunchy.

My Worst Curly Hair Products May Not Be Your Worst

These products have been by far the worst curly hair products I’ve tried. Of course the results may be different for everyone so I’m not saying you shouldn’t give them a try. Every hair type reacts differently to products so what didn’t work for me, may work for you. Some of these products, I am willing to give a second try, but I am done with the others.

    Hi, I am am a Sicilian, fine, fairley tight curly BLEACHED haired Salon owner and stylist. I sell Deva products and adore many of the products for my own hair and the products, with PROPER instructions from a professional that KNOWS the line thoroughly, it has SERIOUSLY changed the hair life of MANY of my customers.
    I truly wish you would have named your review The ten worst products for MY OWN PERSONAL experience.
    You FOLLOWED UP a paragraph of disclaimer but you and I both KNOW most don’t read past the horrible review list. I feel, as a beauty influencer, you are doing your followers a HUGE disservice by swaying them this way. Just as the professional that dialed you into Deva didn’t FIRST explain the NON sudsing NO POO shampoo. Shame on her.

      I appreciate your insight, however the title of the article and the first paragraph both state: the worst curly products I tried. It does not give the impression the article is general or saying they are the worst on the market. From the title, to the very end of the article including headings the word I or I’ve have been included to let the readers know this is a personal experience and a personal article. No one has been mislead by this article in any way. Thank you for your feedback.
