Earlier this month, Uncle Funky's Daughter (UFD) restocked their Curly Magic Curl Stimulator after it was unavailable for weeks. This restocking surprisingly came coupled with a formula change. Check out the new ingredients list below along with a statement from UFD regarding the change.
OLD Ingredients: Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Aqueous-Infused Extracts of Marshmallow, Chamomile, Nettle, Horsetail, Vitamin E, Agave Nectar Extract, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate and Natural Fragrance.
Excerpt from UFD's Facebook announcement: "We finally have all the curl enhancing power you are looking for, in our improved moisturizing Curly Magic. The hold is the same firm hold you love, but hair feels softer, more nourished, while the fresh scent is very mild and clean."
NEW Ingredients: Distilled Water, Vegetable Glycerin*, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera)*, Xanthan Gum*, Organic Agave Nectar*, Althea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Root Extract*, Organic Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*, Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail) Extract*, Organic Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Tocopherol (Vitamin E)*, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract*, Citric Acid*, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein*, Phenoxyethanol (preservative), Potassium Sorbate (preservative), Fragrance.
*All Natural or Naturally Derived
The main changes are the inclusion of vegetable glycerin as the second ingredient; xanthum gum as the fourth; and hydrolyzed wheat protein and phenoxyethanol as two of the last few. Also, the fragrance is no longer marked as natural.
Check out my review of the original formulation here and my favorite Curly Magic combos here. Sigh...this was really my favorite gel. There was no glycerin, no protein, and now there are both! I have 1 more full bottle of the old formulation. I'll wait for reviews of the new formulation before deciding whether or not to try it.
Goodbye to another HG product. :(
