Review: Clairol Professional Curl Definer Range

Clairol Professional Curl Definer Shampoo and Conditioning Lotion are the ideal start to your haircare regime. Infused with ginger and olive leaf extract, this shampoo and conditioning duo work to provide bounce and define and enhance the flexibility of naturally curly locks.

I'm the first person to admit that my hair is a mess. The amount of damage I've caused to it over the years is ridiculous. I've done everything from dying it different colours, heat styling daily aka frying my hair with the GHD and worst of all chemical straightening! All because I've been led to believe that curly hair is gross. Well enough is enough!

It's time to embrace what I've got and start trying to take care of my natural curls! And what better way to start than by using a haircare range designed specifically for curly hair.

I have been using the Clairol Professional Curl Definer Shampoo, Conditioning Lotion and the Curls in Curl Mousse religiously for almost 3 weeks now, and I can already see a huge difference in both the look and feel of my hair. I can tell you right now, I'm hooked!

The Curl Definer Shampoo (RRP: $16.90) is infused with ginger and olive leaf extract and provides bounce and elasticity to both naturally curly and permed hair. I have been using this every time I wash my hair, and have found that you only need to use a small amount as this really lathers up! It feels really cleansing yet doesn't seem to strip your hair and leave it feeling dry. I'm not a huge fan of the scent, but then I never like the smell of products containing olive leaf extract. It tends to fade after awhile though, which is great!

After shampooing and towel drying my hair, I apply 1-2 pumps of the Curl Definer Conditioning Lotion (RRP: $16.90). Together with the shampoo, these are supposed to make the hair conditioned and manageable, with well defined, bouncy curls. All while reducing static and adding extra shine!
As this is a leave-in conditioner, it doesn't require washing out. Took me awhile to get used to using this instead of an in-shower conditioner but it does a really decent job at stopping my hair from looking frizzy, which is a big thing for me. In fact, this works so well that most days I don't do anything else to my hair, and it still looks good!

On days when I want a little more curl definition, I turn to my Curls in Curl Mousse (RRP: $23.50). This contains unique 3D Sculpt micro-polymers, which give flexibility, form and style by moulding and shaping your curls.
After shampooing and using the conditioning lotion, I smooth a small amount of this throughout my hair and then leave it to dry naturally. This is hands down, the best mousse I have ever used in my life! Not only does it create the most beautiful curls, but it leaves them feeling soft and not the slightest bit hard or "crunchy" - I am in love!

Here's a snap of my hair from the front after using all three products:

Overall, I am really surprised by how much I love this range and can't believe that I'm wearing my hair curly almost everyday now, after straightening it non stop for years. Even my boyfriend has noticed and said my hair is looking great - yay!
Would definitely recommend this range to fellow curly haired people, it will not disappoint!

Thanks for viewing!
