Beauty Brands ‘Nourish & Curl’ Box November 2019 Review


An information sheet was included, along with a coupon code for a free 6 foil color with any Beauty Brands salon or spa purchase.

The items came packaged in a cute reusable bag with a detachable fuzzy pom key chain. Very cute!

AG Hair ReCoil Curl Activator, 2 oz –  Estimated Value $7.33 (Buy the 6 oz version for $22)

This is a silicone-free curl cream designed to define curls without leaving them sticky or crunchy. I distributed this through damp hair before throwing it up into a bun to air dry, and I do feel like this helped my curl coils to look more defined.

amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo, 0.75 oz – Estimated Value $7.50 (Buy the 1 oz version for $10)

I love the scent of this dry shampoo, and since I don’t really get oily roots I like to use this to add some volume before throwing my hair up in a bun. I actually had a bottle of this laying around the last time my mom was in Baton Rouge, and she liked it too!

Biosilk Silk Therapy Coconut Oil, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $3.17 (Buy the 2.6 oz version for $16.50)

Fun fact- I am not exactly sure what this is. The info sheet says it is a cleansing oil, but I didn’t realize that until after I used it as a leave-in oil on second-day hair when I was putting it up on a bun. In my defense, the bottle does say this is a leave-in treatment? I’m more inclined to believe the info sheet has a typo than the packaging of the product, and this worked well for a leave-in oil to tame frizz and dryness.


Conair Scunci Dent-Free Ponytailers – Estimated Value $2.99 (based on a similar item found here)

I am a big fan of this type of dent-free hair ties, and while these are being used they haven’t impressed me enough to consider repurchasing them- they stretch out must faster than similar hair ties at a slightly higher price point.

DevaCurl Leave-In Decadence, 1.5 oz – Estimated Value $4.87 (Buy the 8 oz version for $26)

I am a big fan of DevaCurl products for my hair, and this leave-in conditioner manages to be lightweight while still giving my thirsty curls enough moisture. I only need a little bit, too, so this sample will last a while.

Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment, 0.34 oz – Estimated Value $6 (Buy the 0.85 oz version for $15)

My hair loves oils, and this is one I am always happy to receive more samples of. I use this argan oil treatment mixed with a styling cream to add moisture and shine to my curls, and since this provides good hydration to my curls it is less frizzy when it dries, too.

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel, 2.5 oz – Estimated Value $7.65 (Buy the 8.5 oz version for $26)

My curls absolutely love Ouidad products, and this gel is no exception. My curls can get incredibly frizzy with this south Louisiana humidity, but I would rather have frizzy curls than crunchy ones. I used this as my last styling product on damp hair before air drying (which is usually just my hair up in a bun), and this worked well at sealing out frizz while still leaving my hair soft.


Redken Dry Shampoo Paste 05, 1 oz – Retail Value $10

The value of this product alone is worth the cost of the box, so that is a win in itself. I rarely, if ever, use dry shampoo, but this product is specifically designed to give volume and styling texture to your hair while also absorbing oil. I only used a tiny bit of this when trying it out, and I rubbed it between my fingers before finger-combing at my roots and styling my second-day hair into a bun. I liked the end result, and since I only used a small amount this is another sample that will last a long time.

Verdict: I am always down to try out products for my curly hair, and this set featured a good mix of products I have used before and some that were completely new to me. I calculated a value of $49.51, excluding the coupon for the foil highlights. That’s quite a bit lower than the promised $95+ value, but considering the affordable cost of the box, I am calling this a good deal.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you order today? Yep! It is still in stock!

Value Breakdown: This box cost $15.93 ($9.98 + $5.95 shipping) and I calculated a value of $49.51. That means you are paying approximately the following for each item:

  • AG Hair: $2.36
  • amika: $2.41
  • Biosilk: $1.02
  • Conair: $0.96
  • DevaCurl: $1.56
  • Moroccanoil: $1.92
  • Ouidad: $2.46
  • Redken: $3.22

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

  1. Dry shampoos don’t work for most curly girls, so why oh why are TWO of them included in this box?? The rest looks pretty good, esp the Devacurl and Ouidad.

    • Exactly why I can’t use dry shampoos. They just don’t work fit my curly hair

  2. I have the Honey app and was able to take $5 off the price so almost covered the shipping cost. I don’t know what the code was but using Honey will get you that deal.

  4. This is a funny mix of products because some of them are Curly Girl approved (if you don’t know what the Curly Girl Method is, definitely look it up, it’s the right way to care for curly hair and really maximize its potential) and then other products would undo the good of the Curly Girl products. I’m still considering it because the approved products (the DevaCurl, scrunchies, AG recoil, and Ouidad gel) are worth more than the cost and I’ve been very curious about the AG Recoil. You can make the scrunchies tight again by putting them in very hot water or blasting them with a hot hairdryer.

  5. I really love reading your reviews- enjoyable and honest! I also have curly and somewhat dry hair. I’ve never used dry shampoo because my roots are rarely oily unless I’ve been wearing a beanie got too long! I’m impressed by your review of these products and adding volume with the redken paste would be a big plus. I’m excited to grab this to try out! Thanks so much!!❤️
