Ceremonia’s curl-friendly hair products are clean and founded on Latinx beauty rituals. The brand merges the Latin tradition with the raw ingredients used in each line. For instance, guava or açaí.
According to founder Babba Rivera, “Ceremonia was born out of the desire to celebrate the richness of Latin culture while highlighting the next generation of Latinx. Inspired by the rituals I grew up with, alongside a new generation leading the way toward a more sustainable future, Ceremonia provides a new-age perspective to haircare for all.”
As a curly girl myself, I wanted to try out Ceremonia’s products firsthand to see what they could offer my coils. The one that stood out to me was the Pequi Curl Activator. Learn more about this product and my experience with it below!
About Ceremonia’s Pequi Curl Activator

Made with coconut oil, aloe vera juice, murumuru butter, pequi oil, cupuaçu butter, chia seed oil, sunflower oil, rice bran oil, passionfruit seed oil, açaí oil, chinaberry extract, and rosemary leaf extract, the Curl Activator is basically a smoothie.
Aside from being a curl helper, the product has a very strong, distinct scent. It’s fruity but unlike anything I’ve ever smelled before (maybe that’s the pequi). The smell lingers on locks and took major scrubbing to totally eliminate. If you love the scent it could easily replace your go-to fragrance.
To really seal your curls, the brand has its own bright blue diffuser that fits most dryers and will speed up the curling process. Can you say instant gratification and the perfect summer hair routine?
My Pequi Curl Activator Experience
I was so excited to use this product on my down-to-there locks (my hair is past my waist when straight). I generously applied the product to damp, clean hair.
Almost immediately my waves began to spiral and dry as ringlets, which rarely happens without a ton of product. It didn’t take much to whip my hair into shape, definitely making this a hero product.
I will absolutely be incorporating this serum into my curly hair routine on a more regular basis to keep my waves defined.
