Pantene Pro-V Gold Series Moisture Boost Conditioner gets a plus for being sulfate and paraben free. The conditioner does provide a boost of moisture and has a great scent to go with it. I need to test a few more times to see if it does add strength as it says. First wash I wasn't really sure.
I really like that there is a product line for dry damaged hair that appears to be catered to the African American audience. This product does have parabens and alcohols so it's not 100% what you hear naturalistas tell you but I also believe in testing what works for you. It smells great.
I have very thick and quickly drying hair. I know what it is like to have a soaking head one minute and feel like it's a crisp the next. Years ago i started to use butter cremes because I felt like they did the trick and this is no different. The creme isn't too heavy and it actually smells really good. An argan oil infusion can never steer you wrong. They do lose a star for having alcohols and parabens included.
This powder is super lightweight. Keep in mind it is not a foundation so it provides some coverage but it is a translucent powder. I have combination oily and dry skin...more oily in the t zone so I do use a mattifying primer under anything I put on. This is great for a day when you don't want to feel too heavy or caked on and just need a little bit of coverage to even out your skin.
This is definitely a moisturizer. I used it when I was in Cancun so the sun was blazing. I did not notice much of a difference in color change but it's possible I should have used more. It doesn't have a weird smell and isn't greasy. I will continue to use it to see if it gives the natural looking flow!
I saw this on a video on YouTube and decided I had to try it. I have combination oily and dry skin, oily very heavy in the t zone so I wanted to make sure I had something to keep me looking matte for a long time. After putting on makeup, I apply this setting powder and I have to say it works. It could make you look a little ashen and light but if less oil is what you want, play around with it and find your fx. Cover FX Matte Setting Powder
This does so well for adding moisture to your hair. You have to be very careful with twist outs and other styles. It can become heavy if you use too much and leave white residue which is a nightmare bc you will need to start your hairstyle all over again. A little goes a long way.
This stuff was really nice and easy to use with the applicator tip. Unfortunately, my 4c hair swallows it up so I took the nozzle off and just went at it. I had to use a little bit much but it was worth it. A quick scrub and rinse and it smells great. Would use again for an in between full routine.
Cannot tell you how much I live this blow dryer. I actually have the 2200 and it's perfect. The design is perfect bc I never held the handle anyway. I have 4c natural hair and it takes me no time to get through a blow dry. There's no temperature and pressure setting, it's all on the same switch. So I can't go hot on low or cool on high, but that's okay...it gets the job done and then some! Highly recommend.
