Okay, okay, so I know I said I like to follow the KISS rule and thus may not be doing product reviews BUT now that the time is here and my hair does not look too appealing in its raw state I have products to use and will review them.
The salon that did my BC ran out of “stuff” to put in my hair so I left there looking unfinished in my opinion. So in attempts to make me look complete me and my support team ( Krystal and Melissa) ran to get me some products :). Our first stop was target where I purchased Cantu Shea Butter, Shea Moisture Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo, Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie, Kinky-Curly Curling Custard and Tea Tree Oil. Then when I realized that in most of the YouTube videos I watched people were always talking about Eco Styler Gel, so I had to go to the beauty supply store to get some…so we did. Since my theory of no product was out the window I knew I would need some sort of cleanser. AND since I’ve read enough to know that I personally don’t want to put any harsh detergents in my hair which can be found in most poos, and I had already researched it I went to Trader Joe’s and purchased a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap. While there I also picked up some Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E Oil.
When I got back from shopping I co-washed with VO-5 left some conditioner, sealed with EVOO, then used the Kinky Curly Curling Custard.
Scent: This product doesn’t have a floral scent nor is it earthy, it actually smelled like chemicals to me but it’s not strong enough to be bothersome.
Texture: The custard is similar to jam in that it is very tacky.
Ingredients: all botanical ingredients that are good for natural tresses. It contains horsetail, chamomile, nettle, and among other things aloe Vera.
Application: I tells you what to do on the jar so I liked that however if you have a twa you really don’t need to follow the instruction cause you could overuse the product like I think I may have! It’s a very easy to use product.
Results: Like I said, I think I used to much because at first I followed the instructions and applied it to small sections. That was too much for my inch and a half hair so once I realized that I just rubbed some in my hand and worked it into my hair. It dried very nice not flaking but it did feel goode in my hands but I’m sure that was because I applied to much.
Overall: I will certainly be using this again….maybe staple quality 🙂
Other: Getting into the jar was horrible as you have to break the seal which is part of the label and I like to keep my labels in tact
