Great Product Discovery Kit!!

These TSA-approved travel sizes are a great way to try out the first 5 products in the FloraCurl line, and the travel bag itself is oh so pretty! The superfruit shampoo and hair oil remind me of fresh-squeezed oranges, and a little goes a long way. The clay wash did a great job of clarifying my scalp and hair without stripping it, encouraging my curls. The detangler leave-in is light-weight with nice slip although the formula was apparently damaged by intense heat during transit (mid-90’s here in Florida) so the scent was odd and a bit unpleasant. The Jasmine mist refresher was badly damaged by the heat because the smell was so offensive I only used it twice and had to dump it. It did, however, do a decent job adding moisture back into my dry curls at the end of the day. Based on all the many positive reviews, I have faith that these two damaged products will perform well and smell wonderful so I have ordered full-size versions of them to give them another go! Customer service has been absolutely outstanding! I definitely recommend this curl-product line!

Love it!

I wanted to try out a lot of the products but didn't want to buy full sizes in case they didn't work for me so this discovery kit was perfect. Out of all the products in the kit, the leave-in detangler is my absolute favorite. It smells great and I really noticed a difference in my hair. I personally don't like the scents of the shampoo, hair mist or oil but I still feel like they do a great job in keeping my curls less frizzy! Overall it was a great way for me to try out their products without having to spend a ton on full size bottles.

The Role of Vitamins in Hair Health

The Role of Vitamins in Hair Health

Most of us spend our time searching for our holy grail product—the one that will give us shiny, frizz free curls. And while hair products that are free of sulfates and silicones but nutrient packed ARE important, even more important to our hair health are the foods we consume! 

If you want hair that has elasticity, strength, and shine, you need to be drinking plenty of water and eating key foods in order to get the vitamins needed to support your hair goals. Let’s take a look at four key vitamins.

Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid)

I know when I think of this vitamin, I think of orange juice. Orange everything! But this vitamin is so much more--it is necessary to create the protein collagen, which contains important amino acids that support the structure of hair. Vitamin C also aids in the absorption of iron, a mineral that promotes hair growth.

Natural Sources of Vitamin C: Oranges, lemons, broccoli, kale

Vitamin D (D2 ergocalciferol and D3 cholcalciferol)

Going beyond our bone health, this vitamin also maintains the health of hair follicles. Lacking sufficient vitamin D can contribute to hair thinning and loss. Because this vitamin stimulates the hair follicles to grow and remain healthy, having the right levels can help with hair thickness too.

Natural Sources of Vitamin D: Sunshine, milk, salmon, grains, fortified juices

Vitamin B complex group

Many of us curlies already know about the magic of Biotin (B7), but it’s is only one of several key B vitamins: B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folate) and B12 (cobalamin). This group of vitamins carries oxygen and blood to the scalp which maintains and supports follicle health. There is evidence that having sufficient levels of each of these vitamins will aid in hair growth and strength. 

Natural Sources: Eggs, nuts, avocado

Vitamin E (Tocopherol)

This vitamin has natural antioxidant effects. Antioxidant properties help the body prevent breakdown of the hair follicle. Studies have shown that vitamin E can increase blood flow to support healthy scalp skin. Scalp health seems to be the key to healthy hair!

Natural Sources: Vegetable oil, nuts, seeds

Remember—more isn’t always better! Research shows that an overload of vitamins can actually contribute to hair loss and thinning. It’s important to have vitamin levels checked before adding any supplements to your routine. As always, it’s best to get your vitamins from a well-balanced diet. Now, go eat some oranges, kale, and nuts!

Yours in Hair Health,

Team Flora & Curl
