Synopsis

I had been doing so well for quite some time and then last year I searched through the web and found a nice lovely buzz about Camille Rose and with it being available at my local Target, I decided what the heck let’s see what this product line  is all about and so I started off with one of two products that were highly discussed. I ultimately tried alot of her products but I digress let’s just focus on this one. LOL!!

Ingredients

Deoinized water, aloe vera juice, butyrospermum parkii(shea)butter, cocos nucifera (coconut oil), behentrimonium methosulfate (BTMS) cetyl alcohol, theobroma cacao (cocoa)butter, mangifera indica(mango)seed butter, cannabis sativa(hemp) seed oil, di panthenol, mel(manuka)honey, vegetable glycerin,camellia sinensis )green tea) extract, simmondsia chinensia(jojoba) seed oil, rosa canina(rose hip) fruit oil, bitis vinifera(grape)seed oil, oenothera biennis(evening primrose) oil,phenoxyethanol and capryly glycol(optiphen), blue green algae, dimethyl sulfone (msm), biotin, tocopheryl acetate(vitamin E), mentha piperita (peppermint)oil, scent and LOVE!

State of Hair prior to application

It has been tried two ways; as a pre-treatment and as a post shampoo deep conditioner.

Process

As a pre-treatment: I apply to dry hair and add some grapeseed oil and sit underneath a steamer for about 20 minutes.

Post Shampoo: Apply to damp hair and sit underneath a dryer or steamer.

Price

$20

Pros

This conditioner is unlike any that I’ve dealt with. It is thickkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk. You can feel the butters in this one. As a post shampoo treatment, the best way that I can describe it, is that you can feel the after effects of the butter on the hair. As a pre-treatment, it helps with detangling.

I also love the fact that you can find this item in your local Target.

Cons

Zee price. This is not a cheap product

General Thoughts

Overall, I’m a big fan of this product but not the price. Howeverrrrrrrrrr, because of the ingredients and how it worked well on my hair, I give this product 4 thumbs up.

Would I repurchase?

Yes/No (see above).

none

 

Happy New Year!!

Happy Holidays!!!

Hello lovely people,

I have spent a considerable amount of 2014 away from blogging due to various reasons (moving, great relationship changes, better opportunities). I am here to note that this will change in 2015 and I have a roster of reviews coming up because as usual I’ve been a bad product junky (hangs head in shame but looks up coyly as I wink). As I wind down 2014 and look forward to 2015, I want to wish you all a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!

The Holiday season is always a time to gather with family and eat and eat and eat oh yeah and reflect.

I hope that 2014 has been a great year for you and yours and may 2015 bring the best out in each and every one of you.

Ingredients

Ulmus fulva (Slippery Elm) Juice, Fragaria vesca (Strawberry) Distillate, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ulmus fulva (Slippery Elm) Extract, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Prunus armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Prunus dulcis (Almond, Sweet) Oil, Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Organic Oil, Olea europaea (Organic Olive) Extra Virgin Oil, Citric Acid, Tocopherol (Vitamin E),  Glucono Delta Lactone, Sodium Benzoate, Calcium Gluconate, Mica

State of Hair prior to application

Freshly washed hair

Process

Pre-poo, detangle & Shampoo

Price

$14 for 8oz plus the cost of shipping

Pro

After the application to my freshly washed hair, my hair felt moisturized . It felt like the product sunk in. It smelled like fresh strawberries, really liked that; also loved that the ingredients were all natural.

Con

The moisture didn’t last very long, I sealed with my CD HHB and banded my hair. The next morning I had to apply something extra to give my hair more moisture (this is not something that I normally have to do).

General Thoughts

It’s a nice product but not worth the cost and in hindsight I’m wondering if I should have gone with the Deep Conditioner as a leave in instead. My hair needs a product that can take care of dry thirsty hair; my normal leave in of choice is the Curl Junkie Curl Rehab.

Would I repurchase?

No

none

Ingredients

Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Juice, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Citrus sinensis (Orange, Sweet) Essential Oil, Ulmus fulva (Slippery Elm) Extract, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Mangifera indica (Mango) Butter, Corylus avellana (Hazelnut) Oil, Olea europaea (Organic Olive) Extra Virgin Oil, Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Organic Oil, Brassica oleracea italica (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Acrylic Polymers, Glucono Delta Lactone, Sodium Benzoate, Calcium Gluconate, Mica

State of hair Prior to application:

Hair was in Cornrows

Process

 This product is touted as a detangler so I sectioned my hair into four. I slightly dampened one section and applied the product, applied to the next section w/o wetting hair and the final two sections I added an oil (which is my normal process) and then applied the conditioner. I then sat underneath steamer for 10-20 minutes.

General Thoughts

 My hair was fairly tangled and the product did what it stated but felt a bit drying, my belief is that the aloe vera may be the cause since aloe vera and my hair are not the best of friends. I will say that my hair felt soft, not as soft as when I use the Jessicurl Weekly Deep Treatment but still soft and the detangling process was good and adding the oil to two sections did give it a bit of umph.

Price

$13 for 8oz plus shipping

Pros

Good slippage, detangles well and smelled like those orangesicle ice cream pops from back in the day (with the cream filling).

Cons

 Aloe Vera causes a bit of dryness for me but didn’t take away from the detangling factor. I did have to use a good amount, at least half of the bottle.

Would I repurchase? 

The answer would be no only because while it detangled, I don’t think it did a better job than my normal go to which is Jessicurl’s Weekly Deep Treatment and also factoring in the cost plus shipping deters me as well (when I find something that I like I normally purchase in bulk so liter or gallon sizes are always a plus).  Also, when I’m done detangling even though I will be shampooing afterwards I like my hair to feel soft and have a bit more of a barrier prior the cleansing process.

I’m sure you’re scratching your head thinking what on earth do Hurricanes and Hair Products have in common. Well as you know millions of people on the east coast have been affected by this tragedy . There are people who had homes on Sunday only to find out Monday evening, Tuesday morning that they had absolutely nothing and along with the essentials, food, water, clothes, many folks  have lost their  simple pleasures i.e that great shampoo or conditioner or leave in and gel so aside from donating your money and time, consider donating some hair items that are slightly used but can be of some good use to someone who is currently in need.
