I received this head and shoulders 2 in 1 dandruff shampoo in a vox box! How exciting that I was chose to test this product out since I do suffer from dandruff!? However, I am biracial and have very curly/wavy, dry hair and one of the reasons I’m giving this 1 star is because head and shoulders shampoos are NOT sulfate free which drys my hair out and makes it feel more damaged. Dandruff is caused by dry scalp so why would I use a product that will enhance my already dry hair and scalp? I will not use anything that is going to strip my already dry hair of its natural oils and proteins. In addition, I’m not a fan of the smell out of the bottle and will trust the majority that this scent will stay in your hair even after the final wash. Make sure you do your research thoroughly so you aren’t continuing to add to your hair problems.
This is my go to, everyday, every occasion bronzer! It’s pretty inexpensive compared to other bronzers, long-lasting and very easy to purchase as you can get it from most stores ( I buy this at my grocery store). I love the slight shimmer finish leaving you looking sun kissed! It’s perfect for medium-toned skin colors and is also buildable in order to work with other products. A bonus, this is parabean, phthalate and sulfate free! I seriously don’t know what I would do if this product were ever to be discontinued.
OMG! This 🍋🍋🍋 Larabar is DELICIOUS! 💚So good, it taste just like dessert. AND the best part about this bar is it’s made with WHOLE, real ingredients that you can pronounce. Perfect for people doing Whole30 too. I live a Whole Foods lifestyle and these are a saving grace for me when I need something on the go or am just looking for something sweet! Definitely my favorite flavor! If you love these as much as I do, look to purchase online in bulk (jets.com) as they can be a little expensive in grocery stores.
I bought the Paleo Protein Powder (Unflavored Egg Whites) and let me tell you this product is AMAZING! I’m living a Whole Foods lifestyle and struggle to get all of my protein in a day and the ingredient (only 1: egg whites) is wonderful and exactly what I wanted. I mixed this with fruit, spinach and almond milk and can’t even tell I used any protein power. It mixes like nothing I’ve ever seen or tasted before. No clumps or lumps, no frothy egg foam, nothing. This will be my go to protein powder from now on! Thanks Julian Bakery!
I was ECSTATIC to receive this scalp balance deep sea mineral conditioner in my Herbal Essence VoxBox! I used this right after applying the shampoo and really enjoy the scent. The 13.5 FL OZ bottle will last me a lifetime. However. I have tried to use natural products and the ingredient list on the back scares me a bit. Herbal Essence has even been put on a list containing ingredients that are bad for your health. I will research each ingredient prior to using this again, but I would use this conditioner before using the shampoo.
I was ECSTATIC to receive the scalp balance deep sea mineral shampoo in a Herbal Essence VoxBox! I really enjoyed the scent, lather, dandruff removal and the fact that 13.5 FL OZ bottle would last me a lifetime despite my long, thick hair. However, I am a biracial woman with hair that tends to be on the dry side. Years ago, I eliminated Sodium Laureth Sulfate from my shampoos and body washes as I researched and found that it strips hair and skin of natural oils and proteins! Gasps! Sadly, my Herbal Essence free sample did just that. It left my hair feeling “clean” too clean and stripped of all of the good oils and keratin. I will not continue to use this. If Herbal Essence removed this ingredient I believe their products would be better and used more as I am a fan of the parabean free movement.
Cons: expensive, doesn’t elongate curls (actually causes shrinkage), only wet hair use, smells funny, I have to wash my hair same or next day
All in all l, I was a little disappointed as people made this Mixed Chicks product out to be the “holy grail” of curly hair products and it’s going to waste on my shelf. I always have to wash my hair the next day after using this, but I do like how it defines my natural curls for the time being. I truly would love to find something that has all the pros of mixed chicks, but elongates my curls.
This hairspray is inexpensive, long lasting and does hold your hair in place, but personally I only gave it 2 stars because there is still some sort of a smell and I don’t like that my hair is super hard once applied. After prepping and styling your hair the last thing you want to do is think of immediately washing it the next day or even after using this hairspray (especially for us curly haired girls). I’m still on the hunt for one that will make my hair smell good, is environmentally friendly, all natural if possible and keeps my hair soft.
I absolutely love the curling wand! My curls hold all day compared to normal curling irons. It’s also way easier, cuts back on time and I don’t have to deal with the hassle of the cord because it moves with the wand. I have had my wand for years and it’s continued to stay as hot as it was day 1! An inexpensive purchase for salon style beach waves!
