Let’s talk about how I fix flat, oily or sticky roots, fast. I found this “dry co-wash” by @Cantubeauty and figured at the $2.50 price point, it was worth a test. I mean how often do we curlies find something cheap, curly girl approved and that works? Let me tell you though, I don’t ever want to be without this stuff. It has none of the bad stuff (no sulfates, parabens, no silicones, no mineral oils, etc), but contains apple cider vinegar a tapioca powder. This literally busts sticky residue and oily build up (because sometimes I get that with nightly scalp messages when I use too much oil) in my hair. It feels great on my scalp when it gets a little itchy with dirty hair, and it doesn’t spray white! I have very dark hair and I have no issues with being able see this on my hair when it’s sprayed in. It gives me great volume on days past wash day.
I really liked this hair mask. Like really liked it. I deep conditioned with it under a heat cap for about 30 minutes and my hair felt amazing! It gave my dry, damaged curls so much moisture and bounce. They are very soft. The mask was very rich, and smells so so good, kind sweet and *almost* like bananas, but not quite. I will purchase this again!
I wanted so badly to like this gel. I love Deva Curl and they they put out excellent products, but this gel, being maximum holds, just isn’t doing it for me. There was very little crunch as they claim, but my curls had fallen by the end of the day and were nearly non existent the next morning. I can usually get 7+ days out of a wash with excellent curls and more definition toward the end of the week, but not with this. My 3a curls were barely 2b waves. I do not think this is a bad product, however, just not a defining or holding gel. I like that it didn’t dry my hair out, at all. I don’t plan to give up on this product just yet, I just want to figure out a different way to use it.
I bought this on a whim (ie: too good a price to pass up and try it out), and I’m glad I did! I used this two different way. The first is a little mixed in a spray bottle of water to refresh curls that aren’t too dried out (day 2 or 3) and the second is on hair I’ve rewet and I work it into my curls straight from the bottle. It moisturizes my hair without weighing it down, and banishes the mid wash week dryness I experience. I really like the fresh smell as well!
This conditioner is everything. I used it to deep condition, under a thermal hot cap, and my hair was the best it had ever looked in my entire life. It was soft, with plump, defined, well hydrated curls. It was the perfect balance of protein and moisture of my color and heat recovering hair. And the smell! It is out of this world yummy smelling! And it hangs on for days. This is a holy grail product for me now. Im not super excited about the $13 price tag for the small amount, but with sales and specials, it is so so worth it!
This is decent. The color is nice, the feel is good, but there’s nothing I feel is special about it. It doesn’t have some super staying power. It does what a regular lipliner does, but I don’t feel like it’s got any super powers.
This is another standby in my medicine cabinet. From fevers, to strep throat pain, to exercise and dislocated joints, this helps alive pain for just about anything minor. Also, great for swelling. I wouldn’t not have a bottle around!
I take these if I’ve gone on a long run and have aching shins and knees later, or when I have shoulder joint pain. It definitely helps, gets me through the next day. It’s inexpensive and it doesn’t upset my stomach, what more do you need?
There’s not much to say. I don’t know what medicine cabinet doesn’t have tylenol, and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have to use it every so often. It works as it says and it’s cheap. It’s not fancy, but especially for fevers it works!
