Can Jheri Curl Juice Moisturize Natural Hair?

• Oct 17, 2011

Check out this interesting post from the Natural Sunshine forum written by member Kay LaVon.

I have been watching alot of videos, and have run across a handful of naturals saying that they use curl activator moisturizers in their hair. Back in the day I knew a curly and I told her that I was trying to go natural but my hair always looked dry and frizzy. I admired her pretty, long, “juicy” looking coils so much and wanted the secret to her hair greatness! She simply looked at me and said “Right on Curl”. I said “What???” How could something that is used to moisturize a Jheri curl, help my natural hair?

Over two years ago, I bought the yellow and orange bottle but didn’t use it because I wasn’t completely sold on the idea of it working on natural hair. When I was about 13 years old I had a Jheri Curl. My hair grew alot while I had one. I didn’t start suffering from breakage until the dreaded relaxer! With me putting 2 and 2 together, I figured that it might have been the moisturizer that prevented my hair from getting extremely dry, and stopped my hair from breaking off.

To sum it up, I started to finally use the product and was pleasantly surprised to see how soft and pliable my hair was after using it! It had a great sheen that lasted ALL day. I have been using it for a little over a month now and I love it!!! I haven’t had any breakage so far and I will continue to update everyone on my progress with this product. As curlies, we experiment with different products and hairstyles to compliment our journey. I think I have found one part of my moisture problem.

Has anyone else heard of someone, knew some one, or tried this product too?   Please weigh in and tell me what you think.

Ladies, what do you think? Have you tried using curl activator? How did it work out?

Yup I got the idea of using S-curl from the girls over at LHCF. And it’s pretty good. I have to spray a lot to get my hair saturated with it but it makes my make hair super smooth and it makes the curls clump which is very helpful when I’m braiding

I used Lustrasilk Right On and couldn’t find it called company, changed to Lustrasilk Curl Max bought it at Dollar General.

How does it smell? I hate how most drugstore black hair care products smell so I’m a little apprehensive about this.

I’ve been using J-curl juice to moisturize my hair for almost 2 years now. When ppl ask me what I use to keep my hair from drying out and I tell them — I get a funny look. I’ve shrugged it off and I keep my secret to my self now. Sounds mean but the funny looks are rude.
@hehe: the bottles have screw tops so you can open one up and take a whiff. It doesn’t smell like anything to me.

I haven’t tried Jheri Curl Juice but I do love glycerin-containing hair products (Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque, Alba Botanica Leave-In Conditoner, DIY water/aloe vera gel/vegetable glycerin spritz) because they moisturize very well.

Glycerin has also been shown to prevent premature breakage in natural hair.

P.S. Jheri Curl Juice products contain glycerin as the main ingredient.

I love care free curl gold hair and scalp spray. It made a big difference in how my hair felt!

I totally co-sign the care free curl gold! I used it back in my JC days & for a period while natural. I kinda forgot about it til this post! to the drugstore I go!

Lita

used to use sof n free curl activator, to great results. only dropped it when i decided to go for more natural products.

I swear by SCurl Activator.…my coils love it! It’s helped me to retain moisture for days on end without applying more product, which saves on my pennies! I paired it with regular Shea Butter & my strands couldn’t be happier. I was apprehensive as well, however once I accidentally omitted it from my reggie, my hair choked & was DRY, DRY, DRY! Now it’s a staple. 🙂

What are the main ingredients? Also is it greasy and drippy like Jheri curls are known for?

cygnet
Guest
The drippiness of Jheri curl moisturizers/activators is due to the user being heavy-handed with the product. Nothing more. Some do build up; for me, the worst build-up offender is Stay-Sof-Fro in the brown bottle. But you can’t beat it for moisturization, which is why, as much as I disliked it, I often found myself returning to it before I discovered the wonders of vegetable glycerin, which I have paired in generous quantities with nearly everything else I’ve used in my hair in the last two years. S-Curl and Right On Curl are more lotiony, so you may like them better.… Read more »

I like care free curl gold instant activator for my wash and gos. It clumps my curls and keeps my hair moisturized all day long. The smell isn’t the best, so sometimes I spray some Hawaaiian Silky 14-n-1 Miracle Worker (another glycerin based product) which masks the care free gold smell.

Jessica
Guest

I thought I was the only one, LOL. I just decided to experiment with this one day, and I loved it. It makes my hair very soft and shiny. Like Ry, I also have to use quite a bit of product to get my entire head lightly saturated, but I’m careful to not overdo it. I found that using it every 1–2 days is enough.

Zyaran
Guest

Yep I have tried that product in both the regular and lite version of it as well both worked nice. However I like Hawaiian 14–1 n Carefree Curl the best, and the afro spray cant remember who makes it that’s good as well.

Mai
Guest

I used S-curl when I first BC’d and it worked pretty well. I stopped using it in replace of just conditioner since I need the thick stuff to really moisturize my hair. When I learned that glycerin made S-curl work so well, I added it to my conditioner (along with some aloe vera juice).

Brandi
Guest

I used wave neauvu (sp) and while it is moisturizing it also gives me build up and dry second day hair. I will compare ingredients next time I go stock up.

leelee

Is it greasy? I had a Jheri Curl back in the day as well. I loved how thick my hair got but I hated the greasy residue.

Bridget

I apply care free gold when my hair is soaking wet or damp and I never get greasy hair. When my hair dries it is very moisturized and soft to the touch.

I have used Smooth and Shine curl activator as well as Long Aid curl activator and both have been good to my hair.…

These are the same two that I used in the last 2 years. My hair grew tremendously without much breakage at all. I do regularly clip my ends too, but I love using them.

SCurl works for me. I was in Target and looked at the ingredients for a well known product that had water, glycerin.…it was $10.99. Went to the good ‘ol “black hair product” area and got my SCurl activator with water and glycerin.…for what I believe was no more than $5. When I have been picking products lately, glycerin is the key word for me. I think there is a lot of looks from people, because if you lived through the jheri curl generation, lets just say it was traumatic LOL. But with our hair in its natural state, the effect… Read more »

I admit I had a jheri curl back in the day and I hated the greasy residue, the extreme “wet” look, and wearing the plastic bag on my head at night. Yes, those were the days but my hair did grow a lot from having that hair style. I have been natural now for 15 months now and I have been looking for products to keep my hair moisturized. I think I will have to give the S-Curl or Long Aid activator a try again to see if that will work for me. I’m willing to do anything to get… Read more »

I have been using this stuff for awhile. Even when I had a relaxer I used it, and retained more length than ever. The ony issue I have with it, an all glycerin type products is that when I want to straighten my hair.…it refuses to stay straight. Maybe I just need to clarify reallt well afterwards?

My bf uses S curl on his hair. I mocked him at first, but it really makes his curls clump and look so perfect. I use it in a pinch to moisturize my hair.

I used an activator for moisture after I first transitioned. I mix World of Curls Activator mixed with olive oil to lessen the crunchiness of I.C. Lites gel.

Tonia

I luvs me some jerry curl juice!!! When I was relaxed I used it for unbelievable twist outs. Now as a natural it gives my hair lots of moisture!!

MissD
Guest

Well I had a jheri curl as a child and that mess traumatized me. LOL. I remember doing somersaults on the gym mats and everybody knew when I had taken my turn cause there was a big ol grease spot on the mat!!! I recently bought some olive oil gel that smelled like activator gel and I gave it to my sister. I shall not walk around smelling like Soul Glo ever again!

Eletha
Guest

@ MissD, girl you are taking me back w/the grease spot…lol! I remember I was one of a few black girls that had the jheri curl in junior high in the San Fernando Valley in 1983 and it seemed that I was picked to be the jheri curl expert from all the questions I got from everyone but I don’t think it will be as traumatic as it was back then. Since I am natural now, I will just use a little of the product instead of saturating my hair. I will definitely not be a Soul Glo representative.

fran

LOL’ing loudly at the gym mat story!!! i’ve been there girl! embarrassing at the time, but soooo funny now!!!

Bethany
Guest

I can’t stop laughing at the picture of the grease spot on the mat! I had a jheri curl too so I left more than my fair share of grease spots all over the place! Thanks for taking me back!

nikki
Guest

Yessiree!

I used Elasta QP moisturizer AND spray when I had a texurizer. Glossy curls for days! The secret is to use it on WET hair, then let it dry. No greasiness that way. I’d use the Fantasia gel on top of that for hold.

I still keep Elasta on hand, but I like Curlz Creme Brulee–it’s cheap and available at target. I may go back to the jheri juice after this thread. I am trying desperately trying to retain growth and moisture!

I have tried “activator” as it has been called back in the day..it made my hair super greasy,lots of shrinkage, and it looked just like a jherri curl because I have a coily pattern in my type 4 hair. It was awful. I’m not really into the whole curly hair look..especially if it looks wet.

Tomi
Guest

How do you ladies use it? On your ends? On your entire head? As a moisturizer when you do your twists? Always looking for tried and true ways to lock in moisture.

cygnet
Guest
All of the above, Tomi, depending on the consistency of the product—or you can experiment with a few and see what works for you. One time, my hair freaked out from something I did to it, and for whatever reason, the Stay-Sof-Fro that I was using at the time had something to do with it. So, to finish up the bottle, I just used it as a finishing spray, spritzing over my finished style lightly and letting it sit. It worked very well that way. My hair is very porous, so if I were using those products now, I’d be… Read more »

I read the Cathy Howse book and she raves about the effect of Jheri curl products to grow hair.
I don’t use the Jheri curl spray as I can make it myself. My hair loves that, Kimmay’s leave in and beeswax.

I like the tip about using it on soaking wet hair, I’ll give it a try.

thats funny that you post this about the jerri curl juice lol, cause i was just in Sallys last night and said i wanted to try it…i thought this is probably really good for natural hair…but i just brought 2 new Mazani products and i really need to finish this stuff i have before i buy anything new at all…right now i am a recovering product junkie and i refuse to buy anything until i finish what i have. But this that is next on my list

I totally admit embarrassment keeps me from trying them but I think I will get some and put it in another bottle. lol

Beautiful hair! So what’s your application routine? Spray with S-Curl and then seal with shea butter and twist?

natural dancer
Guest

Thank you so much! You hit the nail on the head exactly: SCurl (no water, just start spritzing), seal w/the butter then twist. My hair loves it, my ends don’t need trimming & are very happy! 🙂
One time I omitted it accidentally from my routine & my hair rebelled! I only recently replaced ECO Gel w/the Shea Butter with better results.

GORGEOUS GORGEOUS HAIR!! I would love to know a little more about your process. Do you apply the SCurl to wet/damp hair? Im pretty new to the world of being natural and so when you say “seal” with shea butter, what exactly do you mean? Do you simply rub/spray in the SCurl (I believe it comes in moisturiser form as well as spray form) and then after, rub in the shea butter? In addition, you mentioned using castor oil on your blog, at which stage does this come in?

When i first bc’ed about 6 years ago i used Stay-soft-fro. My hair grew soooo much!!!!! As it grew longer i started using softee curl activator because i found myself using the WHOLE tube of stay-soft-fro. Later on i started use Wave Neuveau. My hair loved these products as it stayed moisturized for days!!! the only thing i hated was the build up.
I think i’m going to have to back to using these products and stop experimenting with new ones.…my mop is suffering.…. o_O

That Jheri curl juice, as y’all are calling it, works as well as it does is ZERO surprise to me! Unlike many of the readers who regularly comment, I was a Jheri curly girl for years until I briefly went natural, then I started using texturizers. I only ever applied two relaxer treatments to my hair in all my chemical life, which was pretty long. The moisture problems associated with relaxers were never the case with Jheri curls and texturizers, because the kits always, always, ALWAYS come with extra products to moisturize and style your hair and an injunction to… Read more »

I just re-read what I wrote, and please forgive me if I seem to imply that I’m the only one who ever had a Jheri curl. That’s very far from the case! But I’m speaking for myself when I say that I don’t regularly see that many responses from long-term Jheri curlies or texturizers, and I was both of those. I see, though, that quite a few others have commented here, and I’d love to hear from a lot more :-).

This is my third time natural, but the first two times I was natural I used Curl Activator and my hair grew like weeds. I could sleep on it and rack it wit a comb, all type of nonsense and didn’t have breakage or split ends the way I do now with only using natural and gentle techniques. I own a bottle of it now but don’t dare touch because I watch what I put in/on my body. Must admit that Curl Activator did the job..

Real RBN

This is my experience too! I have been natural six times and never had a growing/splitting/breaking/dry issue using the “jcj”.Now I prefer all natural products (I really try)and well.…..

monisola
Guest

I used wave nouveau and S curl for a while during the beginning of my hair journey, and I never had the breakage and split ends that I did using all natural products. I also had better curl definition. I switched to natural products assuming they would be better, but I am honestly considering that this may not be the case. I dunno…glycerin is key for me honestly and I used glycerin products. But I might give it (wave nouveau) a whirl for two bottles just to see what happens…but then again, all those chemicals.

Krystal
Guest

Wow. I’m going to try this. I have to admit that the stigma of using curl activator kept me away, but I want soft, moisturized hair and more length retention. I will give this a whirl.

Susie

If I use the jheri curl juice, will my hair be an oil slick? I’ll admit it, I rocked a scary curl back in the day and I loved the pretty wavy hair it gave me but I HATED the juicy, oil slick and the ruined pillowcases and the juice spot left on anything that my head touched. Even now, I limit the products in my hair because I hate using products that leave a residue.

I was just talking about this to my daughter the other day. I remembered when I had a Jheri Curl and my hair grew really long from being moisturized everyday. Back then I didn’t use activator because I didn’t like the greasy wet look. I used StaySoftFro Afro sheen (in the brown and tan bottle) I plan on picking up a bottle now to try on my natural hair.

You can go to any health food store like Vitamin Shoppe and get pure vegetable glycerine. I have a bottle by NOW and it is GREAT!

Yvette

Question. Need a product that will smooth edges. I have been natural for 4 years and having a hard time trying to find the right product. Also, when people are saying they are using shea butter on the hair, are they speaking of the shea butter you buy from the african store or is this type of shea butter in liquid formula.

Ce Ce
Guest

I have been using SCurl Moisturizer Spray as a daily moisturizer for a while. Ditto on all the comments about how it moisturizes, clumps curls, and gives my hair a wonderful bounce. I like to keep my hair in twists, so I spray my crown and other parts of my hair lightly. I work out most days, so it saves me time in fixing my hair each day. It is growing really well! Power to JC-Juice!!

Nadia

I had a carefree curl when I was a kid too. My hair at that time was the longest and healthiest. Back then I used S-Curl to keep my hair moisturized. I didn’t think about using it again until I talked to someone in a beauty supply about what products they use in their natural hair. It is working wonderfully now!

Peggy J
Guest

Yes it can and you don’t have to use it everyday, it will last a good while. It last really good on braids. While transitioning I use to use it a whole lot and it help in that phase. I use it now but I don’t use a huge amount of it, so it doesn’t be greasy or drippy.

Cynthia

I can’t believe this…I had this theory several months ago. I had to think back about when my hair was long and healthy, and it was when I had a leisure curl in the late 80’s and early 90’s. I purchased a bottle of leisure curl moisture balance and now my hair is growing and becoming much thicker. I am VERY PLEASED.

Started using S curl three days ago. I am type 4c and my hair loves it. Stays soft all day long and I work out 5–6x per week. This will now become my staple!

I have been natural for over 2 years now. Went I started my journey with Carefree Curl Gold and loved my hair. Then I started using the natural products, but my hair never seemed to be the same. I started back using Carefree Curl Gold again and love how my hair feels. I know it has all those chemicals in it, but my hair is doing much, much better. This thread is reinforcing what I know. Going to be throwing out all those other products and save myself a fortune!

I myself thouggt of this about 3 weeks ago, using the carefree products. I also purchased for my dauhter who has really curly hair.and I have noticed for both of us.

I forgot my hair products and went on a short trip. Most of my hair products are expensive so I decided to spend 3 bucks on some leisure curl spray hoping it would moisturize for the short period I was out of town. I love it. My hair looks better than when I was using kinky curly and most of all, it stays moisturized for days at a time with one application.

I used the carefree moisturizer spray and it made my scalp itch. I was using the S curl moisturizer spray and it worked but it didn’t last a full day. Now I’m trying the sta fro spray and cream moisturizer. It moisturizes well but it takes my curls away and makes it more of a fro and it doesn’t mix well with certain products.

I remeber the popular jheri curl resulted in hair growth. I figured the reasons were 1. the hair was kept moist, and 2. combing and brushing were no nos if you wanted well defined curls. Moisture and very little manipulation. If you search the internet and read some of the information on the sites dedicated to Black hair care, moisture and reduced manipulation are key elements to healthy black hair. My favorite product is Carefree Curl activator and moisturizer. I’ve used them for more than 20 years with or without a curly perm. I have very short hair. It grows… Read more »
