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.

The “No Poo” Method

By Poo of course I mean SHAMPOO.

The no shampoo method has been around for quite sometime. I tried this myself and I failed. I went for about a month or so without using shampoo. When I told people this, they thought it was disgusting. Let me clarify this, I did wash my hair, I just did not use a shampoo. Instead I used a dry shampoo in the shape of a foam. The only reason that I failed at this is because I did not feel that my dry shampoo cleaned my hair enough. But I did notice a definite improvement in the health of my hair. Surprisingly, my hair got wavier.

Why try the no poo method? Continue reading

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.

Even your hair deserves a drink after a long day

The next time you’re off to a BYOB function, consider leaving one beer at home in your fridge. Why? For your hair!

Surprisingly beer can help add body and shine to your hair. It also helps clean it and get rid of any excess junk/buildup.

I was a bit skeptical about this at first since it is beer after all. I was worried my hair would smell like a frat party throughout the day, but the smell does not last long.

Start off with just one can of beer, open it and let it sit there for a while. There are many different ways to incorporate beer into your hair care routine, so I’ll just start with the simplest.

After you shampoo your hair in the shower, poor the beer on your hair. Do not rinse it out right away! Massage it into your scalp as if it were any other shampoo and conditioner.  After a few minutes rinse it out with cold water, then condition your hair as normal.

A word of advice…

I’ve always been happy to have thick wavy hair. But as most of you may know, it takes quite a while to style. Months ago I was sick of how long it would take to straighten my hair because I had so much of it.

As some of may hair already guessed, I decided to chop off 7 inches of my hair. It’s just hair right? It grows back. But that’s not my issue here.

I also got my hair thinned out for the first and last time ever. It’s not that I was unhappy with having much less hair to style, it’s the after effects.

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.

PanteneProV- Curly Series Product Review

I used both of these bottles until the very end.

For over a month now I’ve been using Pantene’s line for curly in the dry to moisturized formula.

As most of you may have noticed, wavy and curly hair is a bit drier than other hair types. It’s important to keep hair moisturized to help shape the curls. If not, your curls and waves will end up with of course, the dreaded frizz.

After using both the shampoo and conditioner, I must say that I have noticed a difference in my hair. After my hair has completely dried it does feel softer and more manageable. There was a lot less frizz as well especially around the crown area of my hair.  Continue reading
