If there’s one thing I’ve learned while embracing my natural tresses, it’s that not all products are created equal.
We all know searching for the perfect curl companion can be quite an adventure.
I’ve tried many products over the years, and Flora & Curl Sweet Hibiscus Curl Volumizing Foam is hands down one of my favorites. It’s a holy grail product in my arsenal.
The name alone instantly grabbed my attention (who doesn’t love sweet hibiscus?), but does it live up to the promise of transforming our curls into the voluminous, bouncy dreams we yearn for?
Let’s dive headfirst into my experience with this curl volumizer.
Understanding the Magic Ingredients Behind Flora & Curl Volumizing Foam
A Breakdown of Key Ingredients
Let’s chat about what’s in this little magic bottle, shall we?
As you might guess from the name, Sweet Hibiscus is the star of the show in Flora & Curl’s Volumizing Foam. Hibiscus is our curly hair’s best friend as it stimulates hair growth, even from dormant hair follicles in bald patches (Yes, you heard it right!).
But it doesn’t stop there. It also does a fab job of conditioning our curls, leaving them soft, shiny, and oh-so-touchable.
Next up, we’ve got Marshmallow Root Extract – no, not the stuff in our favorite campfire treat, but a slippery herb that gives ‘slip’ a whole new meaning. It makes detangling a breeze and gives our curls a beautiful, bouncy hold.
Now, onto Agave Nectar Extract, the secret to that much sought-after volume. It moisturizes the hair deeply, tames frizz, and as a natural humectant, it helps our curls retain moisture, leading to plumper, more volumized curls.
These ingredients are like the superhero squad of curl care, working harmoniously to give us that curl volume we’ve been dreaming of!
5 Ways to Integrate Flora & Curl Volumizing Foam into Your Hair Care Routine
Let’s talk about pre-styling. We all know it’s an essential step to get our curls looking their very best.
And let me tell you, the Flora & Curl Volumizing Foam is an absolute game-changer when it comes to this. A couple of pumps is enough – a little goes a long way, trust me.
I spread it evenly over my palms and fingers and then ‘rake’ it gently through my curls, from root to tip, making sure to coat each curl. Ladies, this is our first defense in achieving those dreamy, voluminous curls!
On wash days, I use this product along with three others. This is called layering (which I’ll go into in a few minutes.)
But on days I’m not washing my hair, I use it as a curl refresher…
Let’s talk about those in-between wash days, shall we?
We all know the struggle to keep our curls refreshed and bouncy when it’s not time for a full wash. This is where Flora & Curl Volumizing Foam really shines.
On those second or third-day curls, when they start to look a bit tired and lifeless, a little refresh is all we need.
Here’s what I do: I spritz my hair lightly with water to dampen it – not soaking wet, just a tad moist.
Then, I apply a pump or two of the foam, spread it over my hands, and scrunch it gently into my curls, focusing on areas that need a little extra love. Voila!
It’s like a mini spa treatment for my curls, and they perk right up, rejuvenated, and ready to face another day.
And the best part? It doesn’t weigh down my hair or leave any flaky residue. It’s my secret weapon for keeping my curls looking on point, even on non-wash days.
You can also use this product on dry hair, but I’ve noticed the best results when I slightly dampen my hair.
Ok, on to wash days and how I use this product with others.
We curlies know that the right product combination can be the difference between a ‘meh’ hair day and a ‘wow’ hair day.
I’ve found that the Flora & Curl Volumizing Foam plays well with others, and it’s become a key player in my hair care routine.
Here’s my personal recipe for success:
After washing, I apply my favorite leave-in conditioner to hydrate my curls and use a wide-tooth comb to comb through my curls and evenly distribute the conditioner. (Unless I’ve applied a deep conditioner, then I skip the leave-in.)
Then comes the foam – remember to rake it through your curls for an even application and then scrunch it in. The foam works its magic by adding that gorgeous volume without any stiffness.
Then I finish with a touch of gel on top of the foam. I use the slide method with the gel, which is when you start at the root and slide your hands down to the ends of your hair.
I personally like to scrunch in the gel next, but some ladies only do the slide method.
After adding all of these products (I know, it’s a lot. But remember, I only do all of this on wash days), I take my microfiber towel and scrunch out the extra product and water.
Then (are you tired yet, phew!), I either air-dry it or diffuse it.
The result? Hydrated, bouncy, voluminous curls that last all day. This foam has definitely earned its spot on my product lineup, ladies! I encourage you all to experiment and see how it best fits into your routine.

Dryness can be a major party pooper when it comes to embracing our natural curls. But guess what? Flora & Curl Volumizing Foam has a knack for tackling this issue too.
One of the key ingredients, Burdock, is like a moisture magnet for our hair, drawing in hydration and locking it in our curls.
The result? Curls that are nourished, moisturized, and feel as good as they look.
By using this foam in my regular routine, I’ve noticed a significant decrease in dryness. My curls feel moisturized, plump, and healthy, with a noticeable shine that screams hydration.
