My friend Irene got me some Scurl Curl No Drip Activator Moisturiser from Zimbabwe. I was so grateful. We haven’t had this moisturiser in South Africa for some time now. This is one of the first moisturisers I used when I started taking proper care of my hair. I even did a post on it back in 2011. I found it really moisturising back then, I wondered if I would feel the same this time round.
The first thing I noticed is that the ingredients have changed. I wondered if I would still like it or if the change in formula would affect its efficacy. They have added oils (argan and olive oil) and they have also removed parabens. The main ingredients (water, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol and propylene glycol) remain the same. I’m happy to say I still love this moisturiser. Along with the change in formula is also a change in fragrance. The moisturiser now has a sweet smell. I don’t really mind the new smell because it’s quite light.
Regular readers will know that my last relaxer was more than a year ago. I have major new growth on my head! This moisturiser made it very soft and to detangle. My hair has become quite difficult to handle with the two different textures I have on my head but this moisturiser makes it much easier. I will definitely make sure I don’t run out. I will make sure I ask my friends and relatives for more bottles when I run out.
Irene bought the moisturiser for US$6 (approximately R66) in Pick n Pay Kamfinsa (Harare, Zimbabwe). It’s a 236ml / 8fl oz bottle.
