The long-awaited package finally arrived. Curlies have been raving about Darcy’s Botanicals, because it is affordable and made with natural ingredients. When I learned it could be used on all kinds of curls, I just have to give it a try.

After washing and conditioning, I applied Darcy’s Botanicals Natural Coils Curling Jelly to Simone and Nadia’s hair, and it elongated and defined their curls. I left a little conditioner in my hair and applied Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme. I added the curly jelly and watched the curls form.

This jelly has a few things going for it. First, I didn’t use a lot. I dipped my finger once in the jelly and then finger combed it into the girls’ hair. For me, I dipped my finger twice — once for each side — and smoothed the product in my hair from root to tip. The jelly is moisturizing, has a fresh scent and is made with natural ingredients, including organic aloe vera juice, vegetable glycerin and organic coconut cream. The jelly costs $12, plus shipping and handling. We will continue to use Darcy’s. I just wish I could purchase it locally.
