Review | ORS Curls Unleashed

I've been using ORS haircare products for years, especially when my hair was fully relaxed, but have only recently tried products from their Curls Unleashed range which is designed specifically for coily and kinky textures. There's a huge array of products on offer in the Curls Unleashed range so I knew I'd find something that I loved.

At the end of last year I road-tested the  and whilst I love the effect it has on my strands I just can not get over the sweet Mango scent. I rarely like anything that smells like, contains or even resembles Mango so I probably should have guessed it wouldn't be for me but as I still liked the product I thought I'd give some of the other Curls Unleashed products a try. I picked up the  (£6.29) and the (£6.39) from Boots in-store in January (ensuring the aroma was more to my liking first). Both are not as heavily scented as the Mango Leave-In and the Hair Milk has a gorgeous subtle coconut fragrance.

Both products are made with Shea Butter and Olive Oil giving them a creamy texture. The Cocoa & Shea Butter Leave-In is great for smoothing out my strands post wash. I usually apply a liberal amount in sections whilst my hair is still damp to lock in moisture. The formula is so rich and thick I can get away with using this product by itself. When my hair is dry and in need of moisture throughout the week I'll reach for the Coconut & Honey Hair Milk. I love the hair milk most which is great for creating super soft braidouts. The only downside for me is that the bottle is far too small as it's really easy to be heavy-handed with this product. I've now almost finished a second bottle, which considering it's only been two months and I also use other moisturisers seems a lot. I probably will pick up another though as it's cheaper than some of the other moisturisers I use and still does a good job.

Review | ORS Curls Unleashed Leave-In Conditioner

I've tried a lot of Leave-In Conditioners and (£6.39)* is definitely one of the best ones I've come across as it softens my hair and defines even the limpest curls.

The instructions state that this should be applied to damp hair, which I've mostly been following, however I've had great results using this on dry hair too. The best thing about this leave-in is I can usually get away with just using this product. Most of my other leave-in conditioners need some sort of moisturiser, or curl enhancing product on top to stop my hair losing definition easily. I do however have to use a lot of product each time or use it more often as my hair seems to drink this up quickly.

The main ingredients are Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Mango extract and Keratin, and I love most of what's actually in it. It does however contain silicones which isn't ideal considering I've started relying on more often recently (silicones usually need a thorough sudsing to prevent build-up). I'm not crazy on the scent of this product either. Maybe it's the mango as it's so sickly sweet and overpowering for me. That's the only real problem I have with this Leave-In and it's such a shame as despite being a great product it's really hard to ignore how much I dislike the scent.

Trying this product has definitely piqued my interest in the ORS Curls Unleashed products which are currently available from Boots nationwide and . There's quite a few different types available and I'm hoping this means the fragrance of the other products are different too. I'm pinning my hopes on the  to replace the one here or the . It would be great to know if any of you have tried these already!
