Product Review: Taliah Waajid: Curly Curl Gello

Hello all,

So I picked up a jar of curly gello from my local beauty supply store and I have to say that I am very pleased with my latest purchase.  This Gello is very light and smells absolutely amazing!  I have very thick, kinky hair and I used the product before doing two-strand twists for the night.  I applied the product to dry, untangled hair and made several twists then let it set overnight.  My twist out in the morning was great and not greasy at all!  I get a lot of residue from most of the products that I use.   This product left no residue on my hair.  Being that it is a “gello” I am glad that there was not a stiff, dry hold.  My hair was neat and my curls were intact.

Would I purchase this product again?  WITHOUT A DOUBT!

Product Review: Design Essentials Leave in Conditioner

I have found another product that is a MUST HAVE for 4C naturals!  I decided to spend the few extra bucks on DE leave in conditioner because I have extremely dry hair and the summer heat wasn’t treating my tresses well at ALL!!

I paid $10.79 for the product a my local beauty supply store.


My take:  The leave in is very lightweight and comes out in a light mist.  I used the product when I have my had in chunky twists as a protective style.  I sprayed it throughout my scalp in the morning and before going to bed and it did not leave any residue or build up.  It made my natural hair very soft and smells good.  When i removed my extensions my hair wasn’t tangled and was still nice and soft.  Will purchase again!!!

Product Review: Cream of Nature with Argan Oil Sulfate Free Moisture and Shine Shampoo

Good Afternoon to all of my beautiful followers

I made a very wise purchase today.  I picked up a bottle of shampoo for the Cream of Nature with Argan Oil line.  I have not used Cream of Nature shampoo in years, but before going natural I love.. love.. loved it!!!!

The bottle claims to cleanse without harsh moisture stripping agents, detangle, soften and boost shine.

 

I followed the directions as listed on the bottle and the product definitely delivered on its promise.  It had a very light perfume scent.  I used a generous amount of product and after rinsing it out my hair felt soft.  Yes my hair is very kinky but I like that it didn’t give me that stripped feeling.

I would definitely purchase this product again.  Best of luck beautiful.

Product Review: Creme of Nature Pudding Perfection Curl Enhancing Creme

Hello to all of my beautiful followers. I have been slammed with midterms and my 2 full times jobs so i apologize for not posting in quite sometime.

I ran out of my favorite curling pudding and my local beauty supply store can’t seem to get there hands on it either. I guess it’s just that good. I have been using my natural oils(coconut, olive and castor) when twisting my hair at night and i have been looking like a frizzy mess theses past couple of weeks. I didn’t know where to turn so i decided to try the creme of nature curl enhancing creme with Argan oil.

My first impression was that it smelled great. Not the fruity scent that i am used to, but more so a rich perfume.

I co washed my hair with my Tresseme conditioner that i absolutely love and stand by. Afterwards i towel dried my tresses and applied the creme to my hair then used my pick to assure that i was tangle free. I twisted my hair into several Bantu knots while wet and let it dry overnight. In the morning i untwisted and seperated each section and styled my hair with a side part.

I was not as pleased as i usually am with my usual pudding. My hair was a bit frizzy and wasn’t as silky as it usually comes out when i twist my hair. Much better than twisting with nothing but pure oils so it did tame my hair somewhat.

My takeaway: I would purchase this product again if my usual curling pudding was out of stock. This worked in terms of defining my curls but would not be my number one choice due to the lack of luster and the frizzyness.

Remember that everyone is different and you may swear by this product but it’s just not the product for me.
Thank you for reading beautiful 🙂
