Redken's Curvaceous Curl Care Line! AKA-A CGC Preview

I will be reviewing the Redken Curvaceous Line soon, so I thought I'd give you lovelies a preview of its goodness! Stay tuned for the full Curly Girl Chronicle review!

Curvaceous for loose waves to spiral curls - Redken’s Curl-Care Line

Redken’s unique NEW Curl Memory Complex nourishes, strengthens and reactivates for brilliant shine:

Sugar Crystals: Super sweet sugar polyol attracts moisture to curls and waves to reactivate their pattern. Curls become more bouncy and hydrated

Moringa Oil: Drenches dry, dehydrated curls with a refreshing boost of moisture for playful bounce and shine. The Moringa tree is native to Africa and India and has been revered for thousands of years as a miracle tree. The oil pressed from its seeds is chock-full of radiance-boosting fatty acids and vitamins A and C, giving it excellent moisturizing and nourishing qualities.

Interlock Protein Network™:* Acts at the tension point of “hi-stress” curls to give a boost of strength for all day manageability.

UV filters: Shield ringlets and stop fade-out from colored curls and waves. The combination of Moringa Oil and UV filters helps restore and maintain shine in each curve.

*The Interlock Protein Network™ is comprised of three ingredients that work together in the wet and dry phases to repair hair from the inside out.

Keralink™ - a specialized protein co-polymer that acts in the wet phase by binding moisture to hair while strengthening deep within the hair fiber

Amino acids and protein – act together in the dry phase creating an ionic bond with hair’s keratin to rebuild surface protection and help enhance hair’s texture and shine.

The Curvaceous range is recommended for hair types ranging from wavy hair of type II to spiral curls of type VI. Curvaceous is suitable for color treated hair.

I'm super excited to try out this line of products, especially... well, all of it! I think since it's such a complete line, I will play with different layering techniques and product combinations before I post the full review, or perhaps I'll separate them and post (here and/or on Instagram) as I use it. Let me know what you think! And if you've tried the line, feel free to leave a comment and let me know how it worked for you and any suggestions about use that you may have. Until next time...

Please note, Redken products can only be guaranteed authentic when purchased from a salon.

  1. I have straight hair myself; but I have to say that the packaging of these products - not to mention the range of uses - is fantastic! I cannot wait to read your review!

    P.S. I owe you an e-mail, I know. I have midterms and group projects for two classes this week and next, so I am playing a bit of a game of catch-up. Expect a message from me later on today!! :)


I love to hear from you, so leave a comment, question, or suggestion and stay tuned because I WILL respond! xoxo...
