The Proclaim Shea Butter Curl Pudding is sulfate, paraben, gluten, and silicone free. It contains a blend of shea butter, biotin, and honey. It claims to define curls while moisturizing dehydrated hair.

Ingredients:

Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Ceteareth-20, Polyquaternium-69, Fragrance, Carbomer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Panthenol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Phenethyl Alcohol, Disodium Edta, Ppg-2 Methyl Ether, Tocopheryl Acetate, Methylisothiazolinone, Biotin, Honey Extract, Phenoxyethanol

Directions:
Apply curl pudding to clean, damp hair, and smooth to style.

 

Okay, so I think my current curl pudding is getting ready to be discontinued because I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I used to be able to get it for $6 at my local Walmart. Shout-out to Roots of Nature’s Feather Whipped Curl Creme with Mango Oil and Cupuacu Butter. That stuff was “the-best.com!” It made me want to do a “happy dance.”

  Then, , and do it again!  

I never had a bad hair day or parched hair whenever I used the feather whipped curl creme. Unfortunately, the only place I can now find it is online at 3-4x the original retail cost! So, I’ve been on the hunt to find a suitable replacement. Although this Proclaim Shea Butter Curl Pudding has its pros and cons, it is a decent “stand in” until I can find another all-in-one Curl Creme or styling agent. Watch the video below to find out why …

This textured bun is super easy and can be done on freshly washed or previously styled hair. This works best on stretched or mostly stretch hair (i.e., a previous twist-out) best.

1.     Create a U-shaped part at the front of your head (for your faux bangs).

2.     Gently pull the rest of your into a high ponytail. Secure with an ouchless elastic or ribbon tie.

3.     Use perm rods to roller set your bangs. Section your ponytail and rollerset each section. I used the orchid cold wave rods by Diane.

4.     Add a satin bonnet, and you’re ready for bed!

5.     In the morning (or whenever you’re ready), gently remove the perm rods. It should look something like this.

6.     After admiring your banging curls, create your favorite bun. You can do a simple roll and tuck or something more complicated. I just gently combed through my curls, lifted up half of my ponytail, pulled it forward to the left, and pinned it in place. Then, I took the remaining half and did the same, pinning it to the opposite side.

7.     Fluff your bangs to softly loosen some of the curls.

8.     Lift your bangs (to make them easier to pin).

Don’t apply too much tension …

9.     Add a bobby pin on each side about halfway. This will create the faux bang effect.
