How do I stop the Curl Color from transferring/bleeding?
Due to it's temporary and gel-creme nature, some transfer is to be expected, please note that more transfer is applicable to our more pigmented shades like Curl Color: Hot Red and not so much in colors like Curl Color: Rose Gold. More Curl Color used, the more vibrant it will be, the more transfer that may occur.
It is also good to note that using leave in conditioners or other products that could cause build-up in the hair while using this product could cause flakiness.
Can I Straighten/Flat iron my hair with Curl Color?
NO - the answer is NO, Curl Color is a gel - creme consistency and is best to be dried with heat in the sense of rollers, flexi rod sets, braid outs, twist outs, bantu knots, etc.
Does the color transfer?
Curl Color will last until you wash it out in the shower, it is NOT a dye, and will only last for about a week or so, depending on how you care and protect your hair via bonnet, satin/silk pillowcase, etc.
I have Type 1/Straight Hair, Can I use Curl Color?
Yes! - However, due to it's gel creme consistency, you may find the product heavy on your hair depending on the style you are using it for. The color on the hair will apply the same.
I used the emerald green color and got SO many compliments! It was my first time using it. I washed my hair prior, kept it damp, and used Miss Jessie’s leave in conditioner. The color is very vibrant if you add layers of the product. I did run out of hair product. My hair is almost to my butt and with a jar I was able to get through all of my hair but you could barely see it. So I ended up adding extra throughout my slicked back hair that was in a bun. My bun itself was not green. I wish there weren’t these little balls in the gel though? It made it look like there were flakes in my hair at some point. I thought it was my hair but noticed it in the product and felt it when I rubbed it into my fingers. Idk if it’s something for moisture in the product or what. It does transfer VERY easily. After a day of wearing it it was still very transferable. But being that it was so vibrant and I was able to use on my wavy hair even though I do not have curly hair, I would use it again. I also have jet black hair and had been looking for a product that would stand out against jet black and this product did that. I have the red and blue color as well. I just might braid it into my hair next time. Loved the green!

Thanks for the review! Love the Green color! Try pairing with our As I Am Leave In Conditioner next time to help with potential flaking issues. Other Leave Ins sometimes contain ingredients that don't play nicely with gels. Also using heat and time to dry the color help eliminate transfer.
