Organix Morroccan Curling Perfection Defining Cream

As you all should know by now, I love finding products that define my wavy hair. More importantly, I love when products define my curls without leaving them crunchy. I despise when hair products leave my hair stiff and crunchy. Anyways, moving on…I have found a gem with this defining cream.

I’ve only used one Organix product before and I was pleased with the results when I came across this little bottle at my local Walgreens, I was pretty excited to try it out.

Tresemme Curl Activator Spray

No need for hairspray with this product

It’s no secret that I’m a big Tresemme fan. Their products are inexpensive and work well for me, so I continue to be loyal fan.

I’ve used this product in two different ways. The first way I sprayed it on my hands and worked it through my hair. The second way, I sprayed it on my hair and blow dried it for a couple of minutes. The folks at Tresemme recommend the second way for the best results.

I do not recommend spraying it on your hair directly. If you spray too much in one spot it will make your hair stiff and tacky, so take the time to notice how much and where you’re spraying the product.

Organix: Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil

I don’t have much experience with using any type of oils in my hair. The only oil that I’ve ever used in my hair is extra virgin olive oil. But after hearing how great Moroccan oil is for your hair, I decided to go ahead and give it a try.

It is important that I mention the state of my hair before I used this product. It was very dry, damaged, and I suffered from lots of fly-aways. I’ve been using this for about 1 month or so now, and it has helped the health of my hair. Continue reading

Garnier Fructis Style Surf Hair

This is my first time using a texture paste. I have to say I was very pleased with the results.

It’s pretty difficult to find products that will work on dry hair. Most mousses, gels, curling sprays etc. claim that they can be used to spruce up your curls and waves when you’re hair is dry but they typically do not work well.

Use soap as a shampoo

That’s right try using soap instead of shampoo.

No, not just any old bar soup, I’m talking about Dr. Bronner’s Tea Tree Oil Soap.

Sometimes after I wash my hair with shampoo, it still does not feel clean enough. I can still feel the products that are leftover in my hair and it drives me crazy. The reason for this is because sometimes just shampooing once isn’t enough to get rid of all the oils that have collected in my hair. Instead of doubling up or tripling the number of times I shampoo, I use this tea tree oil instead.

Remington Flat Iron Review

My flat iron passed away about six months ago.  I had a wonderful $100.00 Chi flat iron that got me through many bad hair days. After having it for many years it finally just stopped turning on all together.

Of course, I was on the hunt for a new flat iron…except for this time I was on a budget. I’m a college student, I can’t afford to spend $100 or so on a good flat iron.

I ended up heading to my nearest Target and coming home with a $15 Remington Flat Iron. I chose this flat iron because it was of course the cheapest and it heats up to a little over 400 degrees.

Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray

In my other post I reviewed Aussie’s Heat Protectant, but it was Tresemme’s product that I actually tried first.

From having no experience with heat protectants, I did not know what to expect. I applied this everyday before I used any type of heat product. Usually after I used heat products, my hair would just feel dry.

After using this heat protectant for a few months,  I hate to say it but it works just as it says it does. By that I mean, it does nothing special. It just makes my hair feel a bit less dry and prevents heat damage. I noticed that I could go a little longer between haircuts because my hair was better protected from split ends when using the products.

Aussie Heat Protectant and Shine Spray

Once upon a time, I was not a big believer in heat protectants. I never used them nor thought they would make any different in my hair routine. But one day I got curious and a I wanted to see what they big hype was about since many beauty blogs and youtube gurus were mentioning them. I was also tired of the split ends I would end from using a flat iron so often.

Before I get started, I’ll explain what a heat protectant is. Before using any heat tool (curling iron, flat iron, blow dryer etc.) it is important to use a heat protectant. A heat protectant coats your hair with a formula that prevents heat damage. Heat damage can be anything from split ends, breakage, and dryness. Many heat protectants also make your hair shinier and softer.

Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves

Normally when I buy any wave or curl enhancing products I try to find a gel or mousse of some sort. But I decided to try something different and opt for the spray to see if works the same.

The first thing I noticed about this product is the smell, it smells very fruity (like apples, maybe). A good smelling product is always a plus in my book. Continue reading

TRESemme Shine Spray-Product Review

This bottle can last for a while, you only need a few sprays.

What attracted me to this product is that it claims to reduce frizz. I thought it would be great because it’s also a shine spray, so it’s like getting two products in one. I have never really used a shine spray before on a consistent basis so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

After using this product for a while, I can say that it should be used mostly as a shine spray, as it does not reduce frizz very well.

The spray did smooth down a few fly-aways and make my hair a bit more polished, but it would be better to use some type of hair pomade or cream.

I do however, like the shine that it gives. It’s not too much or too little.
