If you haven’t heard yet, Smooth N Shine recently launched some new & improved product lines, that hit stores in 2018. For years, the brand has excelled at providing products for straight hair. As a sometimes straight wearing natural, I fell in love with their hair polisher many years ago. But over the last few years, they’ve developed some innovative products for naturals. So let me show you what’s brand new, tell you all about the new packaging and where you can find the products in stores. *Today’s post is sponsored by Smooth N Shine, all opinions are 100% my own. Smooth N Shine’s New Look Let’s talk about the new & improved curly line. First of all, the packaging is gorgeous! It’s a lot different from what you may be used to seeing from Smooth N Shine. For example, here’s what the old Smooth N Shine packaging looked like. ⇓⇓⇓⇓ SMOOTH N SHINE LAUNCHES NEW CURLY PRODUCT LINE & PACKAGING | Naturally Stellar This is the old Smooth N Shine packaging…Click to see what’s new for 2018! Now this is what the new packaging looks like for the Curly Line. I love the new chic & luxe look of the new curly line. It’s like they went from Pop to Luxury Beauty with the new colors and labels. Love that! ⇓⇓⇓⇓ SMOOTH N SHINE LAUNCHES NEW CURLY PRODUCT LINE & PACKAGING | Naturally Stellar Smooth N Shine Formulas Have Changed The new Smooth N Shine wants to help you love your hair every day, every way. That’s reflected so well with their new look. What you will find with the new line is the addition of Camellia Oil and Shea Butter in the formulas. We all know about the magic of the butters, right? But the addition of Camellia oil is something I haven’t seen in most curly lines. Camellia Oil is a Japanese tea oil, that has a lot of health benefits for hair. It has Omega 6 fatty acids, antioxidants and is a great natural moisturizer for hair. Each product shows you exactly what hair types it was formulated for and you’ll also see that there are No Sulfate Surfactants Intentionally Added. Now, let me show you a few of their products specifically formulated for us curly girls. Starting with the Coil Hydrating Butter. Coil Hydrating Butter I know the product name says butter, but the feel is more like a cream. This product is to be used as a moisturizer. The packaging says it also helps to reduce split ends and prevents breakage.

Just keepin’ it real – I do find that when I use this for moisturizing before I do a protective style, like twists or knots, I need to add my leave-in first and another oil to seal, so that my hair doesn’t feel dry on day 2 of my twist out. So if you are used to doing the LOC or LCO methods, you still need to consider adding your leave-in and oil to the regimen, when using this. SMOOTH N SHINE LAUNCHES NEW CURLY PRODUCT LINE & PACKAGING | Naturally Stellar I like it! It’s a decent moisturizer and I was able to tame my daughter’s 4c coils without issue. Her hair is always the real test. Quenching Co-Wash This co-wash was formulated to help repair dry and damaged hair by moisturizing & conditioning. It’s also supposed to help detangle and prevent frizz. I’ve used this many times and it just doesn’t work well for me. It doesn’t clean my hair well and the moisture just wasn’t there like I’m used to with other co-washes. It also didn’t have enough slip to make detangling easy. I used this on both my hair and my daughter’s since our textures are a little different. Hers is much more coily and fine. I wasn’t able to clean her hair well or detangle it with this either. Now it could be because this product is made for types 1, 2, 3 and 4. Us type 3’s and 4’s have needs for deeper moisture & slip in our poo’s and condish. Also, it says to “use daily for best results”, but I don’t wash my hair daily, as most naturals I know don’t. SMOOTH N SHINE LAUNCHES NEW CURLY PRODUCT LINE & PACKAGING | Naturally Stellar What I really like about this though, is the scent and the packaging. It smells so good! It’s a light, refreshing fragrance too. I also love being able to squeeze out just the right amount of product each time. Because it’s in a tube, I can easily open and close this while showering and it stands upright without me having to worry about it falling into the tub. Curl Defining Mousse It says this is for types 3 and 4. The packaging says it defines curls, helps prevent frizz, leaves curls light and adds volume. I’m not used to rocking wash n go’s, but I gave it a try to see how this would work for me. I wasn’t able to get bouncy curls with this and it was too drying for me due to the alcohol denat, so I stopped using it. I do feel that this would work better on types 2 and maybe 3’s. My hair is very fine and 3c, 4b so mousse’s just aren’t my jam. I need heavier oils and products to define and separate my curls for wash n go styles. For those of you with looser curl types, I think the Curl Defining Mousse would work much better for you. It’s reasonably priced, so it’s definitely worth giving it a try. I’m looking forward to trying some of the other products for both curly and straight hair, especially since I like to heat style from time to time.
