REVIEW- Caivil Naturals

Hey y’all!

As you might already know, Clicks Curls blessed me with a gigantic goodie bag filled with all the things that will tempt even the most reformed of product hoes back into her old ways.

So expect a lot of product reviews- and ya’ll KNOW it will always be completely honest, ‘cuz ain’t nobody got money to waste on trash products 🙅 This is what I tried this week:

My first impressions from the range were actually a pleasantly surprised sort of vibe- for the price, I really didn’t have high expectations with regard to ingredients and stuff. However the Caivil peeps seem to know their stuff (kinda sorta 😆) with the range being sulphate and paraben free.

The shampoo was great. Being sulphate-free, it didn’t foam as much as usual shampoo but its definitely soapy and cleansed my scalp and hair really well. My hair was not left dried out. I think this is because the cleanser used (brace yourself) cocoamidopropyl betaine is actually derived from coconuts- followed by glycerine, marula seed oil and other bomb thangs, it’s no wonder this shampoo is doing the most.

Okay so I didn’t get the conditioner, so I just used something I had in the bathroom and then followed up with the Marula Oil Leave In Masque to style. I applied this to my hair while it was wet. That’s totally optional btw, I just find my hair responds to stuff better this way, a tip from Cape Town Curly 😄 This was like… avvies. It did keep moisture in my hair- however I used a lot (it was like my hair kept sucking it all up 😕) and it didn’t do much in the way of defining my curls.

The Scalp Soothing & Hair Nourishing Spray I used as a sealant, spraying it on after the Leave In Masque. Peppermint and marula oil are the 6th and 7th ingredients respectively, so idk how convinced I am about the ingredients.

FINAL VERDICT: I’ll definitely be repurchasing the shampoo, because its a great quality sulphate free shampoo for a super low price. There are definitely better styling products on the market, though these are decent for just basic moisture retention purposes. If you’re a natural on a budget and who keeps her hair tied up anyway, then this is definitely a strong option. Just don’t try a twist out or some ish tho, there’s no hold here 👀

k bye

    I am really looking forward to these product reviews as I’m just starting out my natural hair journey and you just don’t know which product is best or at least good enough when you’re on a budget.

    Thank you for this.
