Birchbox The Detangling Kit 2.0 January 2019 - Information Sheet Top

Here is the info sheet for the box.

Birchbox The Detangling Kit 2.0 January 2019 - Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle Front

Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle, 1 oz – Estimated Value $2.94 (buy the full-size version for $23.50)

This spray didn’t have a size listed, but it is similar in size to the Number 4 serum in this box so I think the 1 oz estimate is fair. This is one of the more lightweight leave-in sprays in the box, and it helped with softness and getting through tangles. If you have fine hair and are worried about leave-in treatments weighing down your hair, I would give this one a shot.

Birchbox The Detangling Kit 2.0 January 2019 - OUAI Leave-In Conditioner Front

OUAI Leave-In Conditioner, 0.84 oz – Estimated Value $4.65 (buy the full-size version for $26)

My hair loves this leave-in conditioner- it is lightweight but it packs a moisturizing punch. The nozzle sprays out a fine mist that coated my hair evenly, and my hair was much softer and shinier after using. This helped prevent my curls from tangling, too! If you are sensitive to scents, though, this may not be for you- it has the signature Ouai scent that I personally enjoy, but it’s usually a love it or hate it kind of thing.

Birchbox The Detangling Kit 2.0 January 2019 - R+Co ONE Prep Spray Front

R+Co ONE Prep Spray, 1.7 oz – Estimated Value $6.40 (buy the full-size version for $32)

I really like the R+Co leave in treatments I have tried, so I was happy to give this one a shot. This is made with aloe, sweet almond protein, and prickly pear extract to nourish and protect against heat styling, brushing, and it worked great when I air dried my curls.

Birchbox The Detangling Kit 2.0 January 2019 - Oribe Run-Through Detangling Primer Front

Oribe Run-Through Detangling Primer, 1.7 oz – Estimated Value $10.66 (buy the full-size version for $37)

I was super stoked to try this detangling primer from Oribe- they’re such a luxe brand, but a lot of their products like their dry shampoo and their texturizing spray don’t work for my hair. This spray lived up to the hype! It has the classic Oribe scent, the spray is very lightweight, and my hair soaked up the moisture. I definitely noticed fewer tangles after my hair dried, which is what my goal is for my hair.

Birchbox The Detangling Kit 2.0 January 2019 - Number 4™ Super Comb Prep & Protect Front

Number 4™ Super Comb Prep & Protect, 1 oz – Estimated Value $4.77 (buy the full-size version for $32)

This was another great, lightweight leave in that provided shine and moisture to my hair. I liked it, but I am not sure it performed well enough to justify the higher price compared to some of the other lower-cost products in this kit.

Birchbox The Detangling Kit 2.0 January 2019 - Davines OI All in One Milk Front

Davines OI All in One Milk, 1.7 oz – Estimated Value $12.67 (buy the full-size version for $34)

This was my favorite product discovery in the box- it made my curls absolutely shine, and my hair felt so nourished after using. This definitely is a bit heavier compared to some of the lighter weight products in this kit, but if you have thick hair like me it will work incredibly well.

Birchbox The Detangling Kit 2.0 January 2019 - Spornette Swizzle Brush in Gold TopBirchbox The Detangling Kit 2.0 January 2019 - Spornette Swizzle Brush in Gold Closer Top

Spornette Swizzle Brush in Gold – Retail Value $11 (on sale here for $7.98)

This brush isn’t specifically a detangling brush, but it has zigzag bristles that are designed to minimize hair breakage and static. This would be too firm of a brush to use on my hair that hadn’t already been combed through (my haircare routine includes using a wet brush in the shower while conditioning), but I like it for brushing through my hair once the major tangles are out. Plus, the metallic gold color is a lot of fun!

The Verdict: This isn’t the highest-value discovery kit I have seen, but I can definitely say that I will use all of the products in this box. I can see this kit being a great fit for two people- those who are looking for a new holy grail conditioning spray, and those who have a ton of hair and will use any detangling spray they can get their hands on. The brush was a nice touch, but I think it would have made more sense to include a wet brush rather than one that isn’t specifically designed for detangling hair. Value-wise, I calculated a total value of $53.09, which is a little below the promised value of $60

  1. I almost got this but I am hoping for a sale of some sort. ( I hate to pay shipping ). I have tried all of them but can always use detangler. I just wanted to note that with some of the heavier/ milky type ones that a little gos a long way and I have added water to them when they got lower and shook it up and still gotten good use from them. ( I’m a miser lol)

    • If you’re still interested, this kit is 40% off right now! I saw that it was on sale and came here to read the review before buying.

      • I bought this a couple weeks ago and just got it in last week. The sale made it so worth it! I LOVE the brush. It really does make a huge difference with static (a huge issue of mine) and detangles better than any brush I’ve ever used before.

  2. Amazing review as always Jessica. I love the Ouai Leave-in Condtioner. Probably the best I’ve ever used.

  3. Also a great fit for those with kids with long hair who refuse to use conditioner in the shower. As one of those people I might go for this

    Great review!

  4. Oooh I like this! Thank gosh for your reviews Jessica! Our hair seems very similar so your hair product reviews are something I always look out for. I’m trying to cut down on my online shopping but this kit looks like something that’ll work for me, and $30 total isn’t bad.
