I am so thrilled to be carrying Jessicurl vegan haircare products at Sarah’s Place.
I have had a life-long battle with trying to tame my wild hair. I’ve worn it long. Worn it short. Even had a mohawk at one point … What? It was the 80’s.Â 🙂
Since my teen years I’ve tried everything; crimping, straightening, shampooing, not shampooing, olive oil, Vaseline, copious amounts of gel, mousse, (remember when mousse was a big deal?) and a lot of hairspray (sorry ozone) but no matter what I did or what product I used … I’ve never ever ever liked my hair. Ever.Â 🙁
Until I found Jessicurl.
I don’t mean to sound like a commercial but these products really did change how I feel about my hair. Jessica at Jessicurl has created an amazing array of VEGAN haircare products that are specifically designed for curly hair.
Let’s talk about my favourite products from her line:
Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream changed my life. I never thought I could love my curly hair … but it cleans my crazy curls without leaving it stripped and straw like and now my hair is adorable! *laugh* This shampoo doesn’t lather up like a conventional shampoo but don’t be alarmed. It’s because Jessicurl products are anything but conventional!
I normally don’t shampoo my hair every day (too much shampooing leads to frizz) but with Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream I can! The super moisturizing formula will make your hair soft, silky and wonderfully clean and it’s safe for color treated hair … but as you know I embrace the gray. Gray is the new black! 🙂
After I shampoo with Hair Cleansing Cream I add a quarter sized amount of Aloebe Conditioner. You can rinse it out if you like but I use it as a leave-in-conditioner and I find that it smooths out the frizz and helps to make styling my hair easier.
This conditioner uses coconut, jojoba and avocado oils to moisturize the hair without being too heavy. The added benefit of a variety of herbs and spices make this a truly fabulous conditioner.
I LOOOOOVE the Jessicurl Microfiber towel and I use it for frizz free curls! Other terry cloth towels dry my hair out where the Microfiber Towel squeezes out theÂ damp but doesn’t pull out the moisture … you curly haired girls know what I mean.Â The microfiber towel is the size of a hand-towel and I “squeeze” out any excess water before I style with Confident Coils. You won’t believe the difference this towel makes!! Plus because it’s made from microfiber it dries quickly and travels well.
Before I found Jessicurl I used to use 3-4 different kinds of product to get the same results that I get with a small amount of Confident Coils Styling Solution.
I run a “loonie” sized amount (that’s silver dollar size for you Americans) of Confident Coils through wet hair and then style, dry and VOILA! Adorable ringlets. Don’t settle for frizzy or poofy curls anymore!!
As an introductory surprise … Jess has graciously sent me some goodies to give-a-way.Â
I want to hear about but more importantly I want to SEE your curly hair horror stories.

Sarah, you say you can shampoo your hair every day with this shampoo. My question: if you don’t shampoo it every day, does it feel “dirty” really fast, or does it still feel clean the second day?
I think it depends on your hair type. I find I can wash every day or wash once a week. It doesn’t make a difference either way in the “frizz factor”.
If you want to try … I have mini-samples for sale here: http://store.govegan.net/products/Jessicurl-%252d-Mini-Samples.html
Ah, I totally would send something in but I have straight hair. Those products sound great. I will spread the word.
