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 with Argan Oil Perfect Edges Hair Gel

Good Afternoon to all of my beautiful followers.  I hope your day is off to a blessed beginning.

Summer is on its way and the weather is absolutely beautiful so I decided to switch up my do.  I picked up a jar of Creme of Nature’s Perfect Edges hair gel from my local beauty supply store and put it to the test for my frohawk hair do of the day.

I like this hair gel because it’s not greasy and didn’t flake on me.  I applied it to my edges along with a spritz of extra virgin olive oil and used a tooth-brush to make sure the product was applied throughout hoping it would hold up.

This is me after a long day at work with my edges still in place.

It definitely got the job done and I would purchase it again without hesitation.

Thank you creme of nature!!!

Product Review” Miss Jessie’s Creme De La Curl

Miss Jessie’s Creme de la curl claims to be a part of “The Best Darn Clensing Cremes Period”.  It is a no lather, sulfate free shampoo that is supposed to cleanse the hair without stripping it.

As per the directions I wet my hair and applied the shampoo and worked it in with my fingers.  Unlike any other shampoo that I’ve used this one did not get all sudsy and foam up.  It felt more like a conditioner and was lightly scented.  My hair felt silky smooth.  Afterwards I washed it out of course but did not use conditioner because I wanted to see if this no later shampoo could lock in moisture and possibly replace conditioner.  I used my Beautiful Textures Defining Pudding.

After my hair dried I untwisted my hair and fluffed my twa into a cute, curly up-do.  Miss Jessie’s Creme de la curl no later shampoo left the right amount of moisture in my hair even after air drying overnight.  I would definitely consider using this product again.

Product Review: Loreal Eversleek Repairing Smoothing Conditioner

I have been looking for a conditioner that rocks my world and keeps my hair semi-moisturized after rinsing it out. Before going natural I have always had dry, brittle hair. I use tea tree oil and virgin olive oil on my scalp daily but my hair is still very brittle. There has to be something out there that will not be absorbed into the depths of my scalp seconds after its applied to my hair.

As I walked through the hair care section at Wal-Mart I read just about every conditioner bottle trying to find one that suits my needs. I came across the New Loreal Eversleek Conditioner. It stood out to me because it is recommended for damaged hair. Since my hair cannot retain moisture I figured maybe certain parts are damaged from my previous obsessive relaxing and flat ironing. It is also sulfate-free and silicone free with 48 hour frizz control. I bantu knot my hair every night before bed and sometimes I end up with frizzy hair in the morning so this product just had to come home with me.
I know a lot of bloggers boast about how amazing products are but I was not impressed. I used the conditioner as directed but after rinsing it out and bantu knotting it I was still at square one in the morning. The bottle claims to leave the hair manageable and shiny and it didn’t live up to this claim.
My journey to find the perfect conditioner to moisturize my hair continues. If you know of any products that work for you feel free to leave a comment.
Until next time =)
