My Beautiful #RedCarpetCurlsRoyalty,
Today, the Queen brings you a very special in-depth review on a new, all-natural, curly girl method approved haircare brand by the name of Bemycurl.
This review is extra special to my royal heart because I have had the honor of being involved as a tester and consultant for this brand since the very humble beginnings. I can’t tell you how many versions of the formula my hair has tested for you all before you could get your hands on the final amazing products.
Bemycurl was created by my hair stylist and curly hair mentor, Joseph Boro. I found Joseph’s salon, Curls on 5th, early on in my journey (about 6 months into my curly hair journey). He was the second stylist I had ever sat for, in regards to curly hair care, and I can tell you he will be the last. From our first meeting, I knew Joseph was going to be my exclusive hairstylist. Let me tell you, loyalty goes a long way with the Queen and Joseph has always been a loyal God of Curls.
Through the last two years, through countless appointments, haircuts, product testing, and research Joseph has opened a completely new world of knowledge when it comes to hair. I wouldn’t know many of the tricks I share with you today if not for this amazing former Deva Curl Educator.
When it comes to my hair, I only trust the best. Joseph truly is with over 20 years of experience. He has even worked closely with the Queen of Curls Lorraine Massey herself. So, of course, I trust whatever he puts in my hair and I have come to long for our quarterly appointment where we discuss my hair goals and our plans to help every curly queen and king around the world!
So let’s get into the juicy details of the best Curly Girl Method approved, all-natural haircare brand on the market!

Bemycurl Seal the Deal Deep Conditioning Mask
Seal the deal with this ultra-hydrating mask that detangles, repairs, and restores moisture leaving your curls bouncy and full of life.
I adore this deep conditioner, it has quickly become one of my go-to’s beside Alodia Haircare Nourish and Hydrate Deep Conditioning Mask. From the moment you apply it to your hair, your dry rough hair is instantly transformed into silk. I love using this deep conditioner during the winter months when my hair is very dry, dull, and rough. Within five minutes my hair is back to perfection.
Since this mask doesn’t contain much protein, I love to use this as a base for my gentle weekly protein treatments. Since I have fine hair curly hair (3a/3b to be exact), my hair loves protein, but it’s really easy to tip the balance scale and go into what we call “Protein Overload.” That’s why I stay away from the big (heavy duty) protein treatments like Aphogee.
I also love adding a few drops or even half a teaspoon of Rosehip oil since this oil is known to naturally condition the hair and scalp. This will help fight against the hair drying out causing split ends and breakage.
Usage: Evenly apply Seal the Deal to wet hair. Rinse after 15-20 minutes. For added penetration, cover with a plastic cap with or without heat for a minimum of 10 minutes. I prefer to leave the mask on for a solid 30 minutes with heat (microwavable cap, hair steamer, or dryer)

The Mane Squeeze Leave-in Curl Primer
Before you make it official with your styling routine, use this restorative leave-in primer to balance moisture & reduce frizz.
I am a big fan of the original styling duo a good leave-in conditioner and gel. While the all-in-one hydrating gel is, in fact, hydrating, it often leaves you without having to use a leave in. Which is great! Who doesn’t want a quick and simple one product for all kind of deal?
Yet, this leave-in is special. Even though I know I do not need the leave in because the gel has me covered on hydration, I still find myself reaching for it when it comes to styling. This leave in is thick, so pea-sized amounts to start or you will quickly over-moisturize the hair. I love using the BMC Method (Bemycurl method) to section my hair, spray my hair with more water to make sure my hair is soaking wet, and apply small amounts of this leave-in before applying the gel.
After I use this leave-in and the Let’s Get Kinky Gel, my hair is always moisturized, shiny, frizz-free, and incredibly soft! Absolute perfection every single time.
Usage: Evenly apply The Mane Squeeze throughout soaking wet hair, staying away from the scalp. For thicker textures, section hair and use an additional amount of product.

Let’s Get Kinky- Hydrating Gel
Live a little! You’ll come out on the other side of this hydrating gel with shine, hold & frizz-free curls – and then come back for more.
My hands-down favorite gel of ALL-TIME. Yes, it is true my beautiful readers, the Queen has one gel that always tops the list and this is it. From the first formulation of this gel, I fell in love.
There’s one thing this gel offered me that no other ever did, the tightening of my curl pattern. I have 3a/3b fine high porosity curls. If not styled correctly, my curls look much looser, similar to 2c waves forming into curls. I personally do not like the loose curl look for my hair so with normally I will finger coil. Yet, this hydrating gel immediately tightens my curls and shows the beautiful curl clusters that hide behind inferior products.
I know whenever I use this gel I am going to have not only a perfect hair day but a perfect hair week! I barely ever have to refresh and when I do all I ever need is water and just a few dime-sized amounts of the gel. Less is definitely more, and I always notice I barely ever encounter product build-up, I only ever see the build up if I am going on days 8+ with this formula.
In comparison to the Have and to Hold Gel (the gel for wavy to curly hair/ looser curl types), I would say the hold, in my opinion, is much stronger. I would only use the Have and to Hold Gel on refresh days. You can also mix a bit of the Have and to Hold Gel with a bit of the Let’s Get Kinky Gel for soft, shiny, and manageable hold all day.
Usage: Evenly apply Let’s Get Kinky throughout soaking wet hair, staying away from the scalp (a quarter inch away from the scalp). Scrunch to remove excess water or air dry. Once hair is 100% dry, scrunch again for bouncy, frizz-free curls.
