Carefree Curl Gold

Post by aynoslagirl on 2nd March 2011, 11:13 am

I just wanted to see if anyone else has tried...wait for it...Carefree Curl Gold. Yeah, I know, the Jheri Curl juice (images of "Soul Glow" and everything) Shocked

I thought the same thing too when I was reading Kurly Bella's blog post about her favorite products. But, I went out to Walmart (of all places) and bought a bottle for $3.99, and I have been in love ever since.

It's light, non-greasy, and leaves my hair as soft as cotton all day! dance

Am I the only one who has found this holy grail of kinky curly hair?

(I almost forgot: It has all the right ingredients for natural hair)

I actually use this a lot in the summer and I love it! Glycerin is high on the ingredient list and is one of the ingredients my hair loves and its great for hair in humid weather. I also like to use the Long Aid Activator Gel in the summer also.

@Krazy Coils - Yes! Somebody else likes this stuff too. So I guess my hair likes glycerin. I see you live in the Atlanta area too, so even in the winter months, we have a lot of humidity in the air. Carefree Gold is my new staple Very Happy

Your hair is beautiful BTW

Yep! I've been using the Carefree Curl liquid activator in the gold and red bottle for my daughter's hair for over 10 years and we've never had a problem with greasiness. I just use water and CFC and that's it--a masterpiece everytime, lol. I use Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1 in my hair and I swear by the stuff. We love glycerin in our house and we use it year-round.

@netty - I'm on my way over Wink

@fanmnatirel - Thanks girl! - About how to use it CFC - I use it like a leave-in. After I co-wash or wet, I apply about a half dollar size amount all over my head. I finger style my edges and any other frizzy areas and that's it. If the climate is especially dry, you can reapply as needed throughout the day without rewetting.

For $3.99 I am going to try it, it can't hurt. My hair is always dry and frizzy. I still have not figured it out.

I've been looking at that at the beauty supply and have wanted to try it for a minute now....I have to be honest and say i did put it down because i had flashbacks of the "curl" days. I was being a product snob Embarassed. Maybe I'll try it on me and my daughter's hair too. Does anyone use it when wearing a wng? What do you use for hold?

I know, I know. I was a product snob too when I first got the idea from Kurly Bella. Read her review, and maybe you'll lose the "soul glow" images Very Happy I used to use Eco Styler Olive Oil gel daily for hold. But, since I'm still in the TWA stage, I really find that the softness, curl definition, and all day moisture I get with CFCG is sufficient. I really don't use the Eco Styler every day anymore. I'm a one product a day girl these days. When I grow enough hair to start wearing twist outs, I'll probably return to the gel, but who knows - maybe not.

BTW, what's a wng?

It's so funny that I just looking at this product in the drug store today and I was so skeptical that I didn't even pick it up to check out the ingredient list. (my first reaction every time I consider a new product to try) To be honest, all I could think of when I saw the bottle was "Curl Activator = juicy, overly shiny, dripping jerry curls." lol. But now that I'm seeing all of these great reviews, I may just take a trip back to the pharmacy tomorrow. Sounds good!

WNG is short for wash n go.

I've been looking at this product for a while now myself. Actually looked at today but like everyone else I was afraid it would look I had a Jheri Curl. I see it at Dollar General all the time. I think I'm going to try it now. Thanks!
