Product Review: Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil

Product Review: Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil

When I saw this product sitting on the shelf of my dread-locked friend's bathroom, I assumed maybe that is what it is exclusively used for! I mean dreads are attached to the Jamaican brand. Nonetheless I was struggling to find an accessible and cost effective oil to use on my hair besides Carol's Daughter Tui Oil (especially since they don't have a store front anymore!).

Product Review: Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter

Product Review: Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter

Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter is my go-to twisting product when I have run out of or don't have time to make a fresh batch of my homemade flax seed gel. I found it thicker than the Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting butter, but works just the same especially if you have thick kinky hair like mine.

Product Review: Shea Moisture Intensive Hydration Hair Masque

Product Review: Shea Moisture Intensive Hydration Hair Masque

I haven't done a product review in awhile! Mostly because I have been making my own products. However, despite deep conditioners being one of the few hair applications that are easy to make, I always end up buying them because they work so much better. I had been regularly ordering online the Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment and recently while walking through Target I glanced at some of the new Shea Moisture products gracing the shelves.

Product Review: Darcy's Botanicals Natural Coils Curling Jelly

Onward with my quest to find a natural and organic wash n' go product for my 4b, dry, fine type hair. Unfortunately still no success with Darcy's Botanicals Natural Coils Curling Jelly *tears*. I purchased this product from Curlmart based on the reviews of women with my similar hair type that said they had great success with this product for wash n' gos. Definitely not the case with me.

Beautiful Curls Shea Butter Curl Activating Cream Review

Ok, so I am on the hunt for a replacement wash n' go product since Shea Moisture Curling Souffle is just too runny and not the same quality as it had been in the past (does anyone know what happened?). So I have bought two possible wash n go replacement products recently, one of which I am going to review today.

Product Review: Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Frizz-Free Curl Mousse

Product Review: Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Frizz-Free Curl Mousse

I would say about more than 80% of my friends use one or more products from the Shea Moisture line - including myself! I mean coupled with the fact that it uses all natural ingredients, available at local stores (Target) and the diversity of products you can choose from depending on your hair type definitely ranks it as one of the best natural products lines on my list.

Product Review: As I Am Curling Jelly

Product Review: As I Am Curling Jelly

My first encounter with the As I Am Curling Jelly was unintentional. I was at my local salon after getting my first weave out and since I was running out of time and money, I just wanted my hair styled in a simple wash n’ go with whatever curl defining product my stylist had on hand - I didn’t even care if it was full of sulfates and silicones, I needed to be at work in 45 minutes!
