Suave Captivating Curls Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve been using Suave’s Captivating curls line for about two months now. 

I hate to say it but I haven’t noticed that much of an improvement in my hair. Surprisingly, it worked mostly on the lower half of my hair, not so much the top half. The top half of my hair needs the most help and protection, but the products did very little help that.  Continue reading

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.

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

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.

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
