Aloe vera is the hero behind this shine-enhancing shampoo and conditioner

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about the wave and curl-defining formula

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / November 16 2022

The product

What makes a great haircare routine when you’re dealing with wavy or curly hair?

Well, we have a checklist.

1/ A shampoo that cleanses without creating frizz.

2/ A conditioner that imparts moisture without weighing down potential bounce.

Bonus points: defined curls and mirror-like shine.

We thought finding a routine that met all our requirements was out of the question. 

But the Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Shampoo & Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Conditioner tick all of our boxes and then some. 

The secret? A formula that heroes aloe vera in results-driven quantities. Yep, that’s right, aloe vera takes pride of place at the top of this shampoo and conditioner’s inkey list. The highly moisturising duo help to enhance shine, and define waves and curls without weighing them down. Your hair will literally shimmer with a radiance synonymous with a Disney princess after showering with these two. 

Don’t believe us? Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this shampoo and conditioner, specifically formulated for your best waves and curls yet. 

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Shampoo & Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Conditioner to a panel of women aged 18 to 35 with wavy or curly hair.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Shampoo & Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Conditioner.

They left their waves and curls bouncy and defined: A number of reviewers noted that the shampoo and conditioner helped to define their curls, leaving them looking lustrous and bouncy.

They imparted shine and minimised frizz: The reviewers who tried this shampoo and conditioner have curly and wavy hair. Previously, they would regularly experience frizz and tangled strands, but after using the haircare duo they noticed their hair was shiny, smooth and tangle-free.

They’re budget-friendly: Our members really liked that they were able to grab a bottle of shampoo and conditioner for curly hair at their weekly grocery shop, and for an affordable price.

The verdict

“I actually really liked using [Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Shampoo]! I had not used anything from Maui before and to my surprise the product was actually really good! I usually have a wave to a slight curl in my hair and this product was suited perfectly to my hair type. It did not make my hair oily or change the texture of it, I feel like my curls actually came out a bit more bouncy than usual. Would recommend it to anyone with a hair type similar to myself.”

“I loved [Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Shampoo]. Easy to use and perfect for my 2a/2b wavy hair. It lathers up quite nicely and has a nice faint coconut scent. I usually am not a huge fan of coconut but this scent was nice. It washed out easily and left my hair feeling cleansed and fresh. I usually feel the need to shampoo twice on my wavy hair but I used a tiny bit of shampoo (around a 50 cent coin) and only needed to cleanse once. Overall I'd highly recommend this product to all my wavy/curly hair girlies. The price is reasonable for what it is and the packaging is cute too. Feels like a luxury shampoo experience on a budget.”

“[Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Conditioner] did wonders for my hair! I am always sceptical when a product says its targeted for a certain hair type but this changed my mind. My hair always suffers from frizz and so even though I have naturally loose curly hair, I end up using a curling wand to be able to get pretty curls without the frizz. After using only this shampoo and conditioner for a month I can let my hair air dry and have beautiful curls without needing to use any hot tools or anti-frizz serum (that makes my hair oily and means washing it more regularly, it's a vicious cycle). I am so happy with this product and being able to wear my natural hair is a total game changer for getting ready in the morning and my overall hair health. If you suffer from frizzy or unruly curly hair, definitely recommend trying this! It has changed my hair just in time for summer and long beach days.”

“At first, I was unsure about [Maui Moisture Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Conditioner] as I haven’t previously used any of this brand’s products before, and I wasn’t really a fan of flaxseed oil. But, I was genuinely impressed with the results. My hair definitely looks and feels bouncy, shiny, stronger, revived and hydrated after use. Also, this product contains aloe vera - it’s a big yes for me! Unlike some hair products, this one does not have a strong scent after use either. I am excited to explore some of the other products from this brand in the future!”
