Have been using this for a good few years now, recently it was unavailable while packaging was being updated, I was gutted, couldn’t find anything as good, spent a lot of money on products that I won’t use. This clay wash isn’t cheap but lasts for ages and is unbeatable .. love it
My wash and go loves this gel as a topper, and a little goes a very long wash as this is very concentrated and a lot isn't needed for good results. Will definitely purchase again.
If you are sensitive to scents and astrigent cleansers, this is a good one for you. I could tell that it was definitely cleansing my hair well, but it did not feel like it was stripping.
The product does say "Leave-in" with the option to wash away. I think this is what lead me to purchase it, as I don't typically use leave in conditioners for my wash and go's. I was hoping to just use it as a regular conditioner to follow up with my shampoo.
However, after noticing that it doesn't quite give the results I was expecting as a wash away conditioner, I tried using it before applying the gels and I will say that it does feel like it "primes" the curl set. I was shocked at hell much better my wash and go turned out by adding this to my hair first. A pleasant surprise.
This gel is very concentrated and goes a long way. I use it as a "topper" gel along with a few other products. But I must say that adding this gel is what gave me the definition, hold and shine that I was missing. I love how concentrated it is, because I don't need to use much of it and the bottle will last me a while for my wash and go's. Will definitely be purchasing again.
I love this gel. It clumped my hair perfectly. I had really good hold. My wash and go lasted for 7 days. I could have went longer but I do try to wash my hair every Friday. Love the product!! Unfortunately, the shipping cost raised the price a little too much for me especially for the size. A larger size would be awesome! Also, I do not have to use a lot.
Performed well on holiday on the hot humid evenings, as a regular customer, I really don’t use anything else, I would like to see a loyalty scheme.
This brand was recommended by my hairdresser. I decided to buy the small pack to try it first before commiting. I have very dry and curly hair. It made my hair soft and the gel held my curls for longer. My dry scalp also loved the products. I will now buy the bigger bottles and use the small ones for when I travel.
Papaya Slip is a staple of mines!! Especially for the summer months. I have tight coily, dense, high lifted hair, and I use Papaya as a topper gel. On day seven, I'm questioning if I should shampoo because my curls still look amazing!! Love this product!!!

I last used this over a year ago then went through a straight hair phase. The product has changed and I don't get the same effect I used to. It doesn't dry as hard now, I used to only need this product and didn't have to layer with any other.
Hi Andrea just want to reassure you that we have made no changes to our award winning product. It sounds like after a year of straightening you may now be dealing with some heat damage to your curls. The other possible thought is that you may be using too much leave-in conditioner underneath the Bamboo Ginseng and this is causing the hold you desire to be affected. Hope this helps!
This deep conditioner provides great slip and does a good job of nourishing curls.
I love the gloss this balm provides. I emulsify and smooth a tiny amount over my curls before breaking the cast and then scrunch out the crunch with another small dab (emulsified again, of course). A little goes a long way.
A couple days ago, I washed my hair with the shampoo provided in the kit, deep conditioned with Trepadora (bought separately), and applied the leave-in primer, the taming lotion, and then the glaze. I have extremely fine, low-density hair. However, this Trepadora combination gave my hair structure, made it look thicker, and defined my curls well. I sectioned and made sure each strand received a coating of product (that technique makes a significant difference). I am very pleased with this brand and will be purchasing the larger bottles.
I've been waiting for this clay cleanser to be restocked, and I'm delighted by the new tube design. Thank you Trepadora - it's one of my favourite products and I've been too long without it. (Now tell me when Almond Conditioner will return!)
I use it with Papaya slip and my hair loves it
Saw the recommendation in the Observer, and thought the Babassu Quench might have a chance against my 13-year-old daughter's unruly hair. So far, so good - much less frizz, lovely coils, her hair looks shiny but not greasy, and she's happy with it. Dad of the Year, me!
I only needed a small amount of the hair rinse it lathered up and the smell is lovely.
I am experimenting with the other products and the results seem good.
Less is more for sure. It’s my second purchase and anyone with thirsty curls but who don’t want the weight of a conditioner, then this is for you. I have fine hair with wavy (sometimes curly) hair type. I tend to mix it in my palm with water to refresh slept in hair. Works wonders at reviving curls but really, you only need a smudge.
I ordered the Curl Reviving Kit about two weeks ago and used it for the first time yesterday evening, so today is really day one of wear. I am loving the results at this point. Out of all the product brands that I have used up to this point, this is the first time my natural curl pattern has not turned to a "frizz" pattern overnight. I hair feels great (not sticky or crunchy), my curl pattern is defined, and I love the way my hair looks. I am anxious to see where this hair journey goes!
I have wanted to try Trepadora for quite a while, and I wasn’t disappointed. The shampoo has a gorgeous rich lather, but not at all stripping, and the other three products are all fantastic. They give a great cast, which I sleep in, and then SOTC in the morning, to find fantastic curls!
I am very impress with this product. It makes such a difference to my curls. They are normally very dry but after applying this balm they look and also feel like healthy hair.
This Bambo Ginseng Curling Glaze is the bomb!!!! My wash-n-go last 7 days. My wash-n-gos used to last 3 days. I layer Uncle Funkys Curly Magic, I create hold from Innersense, and the Bambo Ginseng Curling Glaze.
Wow I used this for the first time today and I got great definition with my curls; made such a difference to my set. Very pleased. Can’t wait to use it again !
I use it with Papaya Slip resulting in lovely curls. Love it ❤️
