[REVIEW] Kuicare Tee Tree & Cinnamon Moisturizing Hair Cream

Over the weekend, I attended the KUICARE Sample Party which was hosted by Dabs of Savvy Chic Beauty & Hair Hub. (Photos HERE and HERE). I typically do not attend hair events except for the NITC and Salon Day Out but I decided to go because Dabs asked me and it was a sample party. Translation: Free hair products. We had a good time listening to the owner of Kuicare talk about her brand. Then there was a demo session for the products where it was used on the models and we got to see first hand. Myself and a few others kept waiting for the sample products to arrive but it never came forth. We kept wondering why they called it a sample party if they weren’t going to give sample products. So, we ended up buying one product each. A mean after that Sizzelle Clearance Sale, we were not buying any product until next year.

So, I’ve used the moisturising hair cream and this is the review.

Product Promise

It is designed for kinky and curly hair, moisturises without weighing curls down, prevents split ends, stimulates hair growth and keeps hair soft and healthy. [TRUE to some extent]

Ingredients

Aqua, Shea Butter, Propylene Glycol, Paraffinum Liquidum, Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol, PEG 75 Lanolin, Dimethicone, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Apricot and Cinnamon Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Methyl Paraben, Propyl paraben, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Essential Oil [REALLY?], Colour.

How I used

I used it as a moisturiser and styler to moisturise and twist my hair after co-washing. It gave me pretty defined curls that lasted for about 6 hours before I took it down and co-washed again. This time, I used it to moisturise again and seal with my whipped hair butter.

Thoughts?

I have a problem with the ingredient list. It can’t claim to be a natural hair product if it is filled with paraffin, cones, parabens and sulphates. Which also claims to be a tea tree oil product but has tea tree at the BOTTOM of the ingredient list.  It’s just wrong and annoying. I’m actually upset and it seems like a marketing gimmick to me.

But did it work?

Meh. It’s a non-greasy moisturiser with a semi- thick consistency and a faint minty fragrance which is guaranteed to leave flakes on your hair. Other than that, it’s really basic and can be used as a daily moisturiser.

Word of advice

Take out the natural hair on the label.
