Product Review - Kinky Curly Come Clean shampoo

Come clean
Kinky Curly
It's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of the Kinky Curly Line.  Since their products are staples for me I figured I discuss them early on. 

"COME CLEAN
You know all the grimy stuff you've put on your hair.
Here's your chance to COME CLEAN TM .
NEW & IMPROVED Formula with Phytic Acid - a natural chealating agent that removes hard water minerals such as calcium & magnesium. An all natural replacement for EDTA derived from soy & corn, it wlll soften hard water, rinse cleaner and prevent hard water buildup on your hair.

Our exclusive blend of Mandarin Orange extract will gently clean your hair and scalp of dulling buildup while Sea Kelp will help maintain its proper moisture balance.
This Sulfate Free shampoo is perfect for dry damaged hair and gentle enough for everyday use."  Kinky Curly


I came across this line about two years ago after leaving Miss Jessie's Line alone.  I was looking for something lighter on my hair as well as not leaving it crunchy when it dried after a wash and go.  It was the perfect combination.  Lighter than Miss Jessie's and heavier than Mixed Chicks.  I was happy! 

Kinky Curly does not lie about this shampoo being able to remove whatever gunk or crap you have in your hair.  It will strip it clean.  I actually started using this shampoo while I was still using Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding and it completely removed the build up I was getting from it.  If you are using less then natural products and need a shampoo to really  clean your hair then this is the shampoo for you.

After I started using the entire Kinky Curly line I felt the Come Clean was stripping TOO MUCH of my hair.  It was too harsh for me since I was using better products as well as natural oils.  That wonderful cleansing agent was as necessary anymore.  I moved on to Aubrey Organics for my weekly shampooing.

I'd like to point out some things before I rate this.
  • Kinky Curly works well with other products.  I've seen many reviews claiming it doesn't but that just isnt' true in all cases.  I use Kinky Curly with Aubrey Organics daily as well as my sister (the PJ) who uses KC with other products as well.  We've had NO problems.  I think if you use natural, high quality products with KC you will find it will work in conjunction with them quite nicely.  
  • I was not using natural oils very often or doing a pre-shampoo oil treatment back then and that may have made the difference for me.  If I had, I probably would have continued using that shampoo. 
  • I didn't know nearly as much about checking out ingredients in hair products back then and  just wasn't as knowledgeable about my hair.  I would switch from a product without finding out WHY it wasn't working.  I'm much more informed and in tuned to my hair now.
*         Poor rating.  Will not be buying again ever!!
**       Mediocre.  Will not be buying again. 
***     Average.  May or may not buy again.
****   Above average.  Will probably buy again.
***** Excellent!  Will buy again and may become a staple product.

Kinky Curly Come Clean shampoo    **** 

I need to give it another try since I know what I was doing wrong a couple of years ago when I stopped using it.  I think my hair needed some oil treatments and that may have been the reason I felt the shampoo was too drying.  My hair was super clean and it did a wonderful job of removing all the gunk I was putting in it at the time.  I am happy with my Aubrey Organics shampoo, but I think so highly of this line that I will try the KC shampoo again to see if I wanna start using it regularly. 

This may seem like a wishy-washy product review but I feel you should be completely informed about what was going on with me when I was using it.  That's the only fair way to assess a product so you will have a much more informed decision to make. 

If you are looking for a shampoo that will really clean whatever you have in your hair then Kinky Curly Come Clean is the product for you.

Take care Naturals,
Sabrina

  1. Can you believe that I have never tried this line? Astonishing, I know, I know. I keep intending to. What is most astonishing is that I should have long, long ago. The funny thing is that I have it in my house. Yes, I have it. I've used it on my daughter's hair when we were still in the throes of discovering and dealing with her heat damage. So, it's in the kitchen. Now, if I would just move it to the bathroom . . .

    Anyway, thanks for the product review. Very helpful. Maybe I'll use it one of these days.
