Created for beauties with kinky curls, the Cashmere + Caviar Collection from Curls helps to strengthen, restructure and add sheen to stressed and damaged coils and kinks. Certified Organic Cashmere Extract helps soften and strengthen tresses while Certified Organic Caviar Extract provides mane with rich Vitamins A and D plus Omega 3, 6 and 9. In addition, Champagne fruit extract helps provide hair with increased elasticity and manageability.

Sexy, sparkling, shimmer shine—that’s what you get with the original Oil Free Wig Shine. Popularly knows as “Blue Juice,” the formula contains a unique blend of ingredients created to impart shine on human and synthetic hair and wigs. It penetrates quickly so hair retains movement while helping to decrease inner fiber friction for easy combing. Thirty stylish SBH readers will each win a product duo of one bottle of Oil Free Wig Shine and one bottle of Oil Free Wig Shine Detangler & Cuticle Sealer (to help lay down hair cuticles for dull/dry human and synthetic hair).
