Love this product. I got it today b/c I have all these little hairs that stick up on the top of my head. This prodcut is really really concentrated. I rubbed a tiny bit along my fingers and then on my head and it didn't even leave my hair oily looking is which I worry about sometimes. Love this product and will rebuy but not soon b/c it will be lasting me for a very long time!
Great for a quick blow dry if you don't have time to flat iron! Smells great and a little goes a long ways. Great as a shine and smoothing cream before you flat iron also. Love this product.

Ok product. It provides lots of shine and somewhat free hair. I like the little bottle it comes in also. I don't know how much of a "healing" effect it has yet since I've only used it 3 times, but I do notice that my hair is softer and lays nicely, but has a tendency to poof. I will update when I figure out how much of a healing effect it has. Won't be rebuying.
I live in South Louisiana where the humidity + the heat = major frizz! This stuff keeps my hair soft, but doesn't kill the frizz. Ok stuff but a little is all you need really because too much is greasy. Won't be repurchasing.

I love this leave-in. I can't use this as a styling product, but it keeps my hair moisturized all day. It's not something I use everyday b/c I like to rotate things, but it's a good leave-in overall. I've used better, but I like this b/c it doesn't have a tendency to build up like other leave-ins I've tried. It has a nice light consistency and smell. Don't let the consistency fool you, b/c it has a lot of moisturizing properties. Good product though.

This is a great light weight heat protectant. It's not quite heavy enough for my hair, but if I use a flat iron, it's just fine. It's not too heavy, but not too light. It calms frizz and adds a bit of moisture. Perfect for if you want to use other styling products also. I love to use this when I don't want a stick straight flat iron job. I love to use this stuff when my hair is wet. Great ds stuff. Will definately rebuy.
Love the amount of lather this product provides. For me, shampoo with lots of lather is a good thing. This shampoo gently cleanses and leaves my hair clean. It's a good shampoo overall. Love the scent.
Provides lots of slip when washing it out. It keeps my hair moisturized so that when I flat iron, like I do daily, it doesn't feel like straw. Great conditioner for people who use some type of heat styling daily. Will repurchase to keep in my "rotation" of shampoos and conditioners.

I would usually take one lippie off for it being in a tub, but this stuff works so well, I'm not even worried about that. I used this today after clarifying and my hair was like silk. It has so much shine and softness and it was so easy to style. I may have to wash my hair again tonight b/c I can't keep my hands out of it! LOL. Great product and can't wait to see how much my hair improves in the next several weeks using this once or twice a week. Highly recommended!
Styling Products -Aussie - Calm That Frizz Styling Cream

Smells like Elmer's School Glue! Yuck.. But this product doesn't do what it says. It's thick and rather coating to hair. It does calm frizz, but my hair does not lay as flat as it normally would. Anyways, waste of money IMHO. Will not be spending money on this again.
Conditioner -Aussie - Hair Insurance Leave In Conditioner
DaleJrFan50 5/11/2006 2:43:00 PM
I love this product. It is a great leave-in conditioner. I got this a few weeks ago when I notice that my hair was starting to get dry at the ends due to constant blow drying and flat ironing. After a few days of use on damp hair, my ends were starting to look normal again. My hair has a nice shine to it, but not overly shiney. Good product.
Hair Styling Tools -Sedu - Ionic Ceramic Professional Flat Iron (Original)
DaleJrFan50 5/11/2006 2:35:00 PM
This is a very good flat iron. It only gets 3 lippies b/c the plates don't move to prevent hair crimping accidentally and b/c the outside gets extremely hot! Overall, it straightens my hair and gives it shine. I have both the SEDU and the CHI. I prefer my CHI day in and day out b/c I think that the CHI is just a better iron overall.

DaleJrFan50 5/11/2006 2:07:00 PM
I'm new to the whole curly girl routine. This mousse is really good for creating curls. I may not have the perfect routine yet, which is why I only gave it 3 lippies, but I will update when I get my routine down. I love this product, but just have to work with it to see what's right for my hair.
I love love love this product. I went to visit my boyfriend for the weekend and he lives 5 hours away from me. I remembered my shampoo and condish, but forgot my styling product. Making a long story short, I got some of this stuff at Trade Secret. It made my hair so silky soft and shiney!! I flat ironed with my CHI after I blowdried and my hair was so wonderful. I can't say enough good things about this product. It tames my wild frizz, softens the dry parts, gives a rush of shine to my hair. Will be rebuying when I run out!
Conditioner -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Daily Treatment Conditioner
DaleJrFan50 5/8/2006 11:54:00 PM
This conditioner is horrible! This is by far and away the worst conditioner I've ever used. It leaves such a horrible build up that is hard to get out even after clarifying. Will not be repurchasing.
