It has been over two years since we debuted the illustrious Curl Sponge on HeyMikeyATL.

Then it was all about standing out with a new style. Well now, in 2017, that old “new” style is a trend. Thanks to a little Curl Sponge magic men and women everywhere are rocking their natural hair, curly and stylishly!

Hairstyles have evolved and so has our nifty Curl Sponge! Meet The Curl Sponge 3.0, the more durable, stronger, and efficient descendant of the original Curl Sponge we grew to love. Unlike its predecessor the spongy material harder and better fits your hand. Also the holes in the sponge are coupled with spikes and deep groves that reach into longer hair, allowing it to be curled as well.

Besides the actual sponge is a host of related products including an organic pomade, spray gel, regular pomade, and shampoo and conditioner in one (seen above in the main. I have to say I am almost as smitten with the products as I was with The Curl Sponge 3.0. The pomades smell heavenly; but i am in love with the organic one. Not only is it made from all-natural ingredients, it is completely safe and can even double as lip balm! Neither pomades cause any build up and are easily rinsed out. The shampoo and conditioner not only leave your hair super clean, but feeling alive and vibrant. It really gets to your scalp and the root of your hair.

The spray gel is an amazing alternative to the Spritz hairspray we have seen many people using to keep their curls in place. Unlike Spritz,the spray gel does not dry out or weaken your hair, cause any build up, and it smells great! Check out how the products worked my hair. Check out my before and after pictures below.

Curl Hand Sponge

Happy Cyber Monday everyone! Just when we thought we had seen it all a nifty little invention comes along that makes you rethink how you ever lived without it.

No we are not talking about a new feature on your smartphone, or some electronic device that will change the world, instead we are keeping it simple with a new way of curling and styling your natural hair–introducing the Curl Hand Sponge!

curl sponge products

The Curl Hand Sponge is the latest invention of Youseff The Barber, the same man who brought you the original Curl Sponge and its almost yearly updates. Each version of the sponge has been better than the last, either curling longer hair, making twist or curls, and when combined with other Curl Sponge products (the spray gel, organic pomade) has made some of the most amazing hair styles you have ever seen! The Curl Hand Sponge is no different; other than it literally lets you be hands on with your hair styling.

The material attached to the glove of the Curl Hand Sponge is the same spongy material of the previous Curl Sponges. Using the hand sponge however allows you to give more attention to more minute areas that previous versions of The Curl Sponge may miss. If you are like me those areas that require extra attention tend to be around my hairline and edges. Imagine a finger-sized hair sponge touching on those area, well the Curl Hand Sponge uses your own appendages to do just that!

Check out a before and after photo of my own hair after using the hand sponge below!
