Treatments -Unlisted Brand - One n' Only - Argan Oil Treatment
LauraWolfhart 7/19/2012 11:25:00 PM
Does this contain silicone? It made my hair shiny but kinda heavy and that's usually what silicones do. Plus, I then bought a different argan oil brand called Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan oil and my hair didn't get heavy at all and this brand is silicone free. It did a much better job with the frizz too so I think I'll be sticking to my second choice from now on.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Olive Oil as Serum for Hair
LauraWolfhart 7/19/2012 10:22:00 PM
I personally recommend using jojoba or argan oil instead of olive oil. I know olive oil is great and has lots of benefits but its so HARD to get out of hair!!! Especially when you use sulfate-free shampoo! I started using an argan oil called Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan oil that I got online at Beyas and I've been loving it so far because argan oil is supposed to be really good hair food. It also tones down the frizzes and makes hair nice and shiny, plus it's not greasy AT ALL and smells great! So no more olive oil for me, and if this is too greasy for anyone else then use ARGAN OIL INSTEAD:
Shampoo -Suave - Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Shampoo
LauraWolfhart 7/18/2012 9:38:00 PM
Nice that it has low sulfates but I prefer no sulfates at all after using this! Made my hair look about 20 years older than it is, not buying this again. I used a different keratin shampoo (Cocoa keratin daily shampoo) and it has zero sulfates, I noticed a considerable improvement in my hair so it's definitely the fault of Suave!
This was a pretty big investment and it did deliver for the first month or so but later my hair just started looking damaged and dry. The ends looked especially fried and I couldn't help but regret not getting the same one as my sister who got a Cocoa Keratin treatment instead of the Coppola. I guess argan oil does make the difference because her hair is perfectly healthy :(
Hair Styling Tools -Conair - Steam N Shine curling iron
LauraWolfhart 6/26/2012 8:50:00 PM
I know it can be difficult to find a good steam curling iron but if there was another model apart from this one, I would definitely choose the other. Steam curling irons are meant for harder to curl hair, but this seemed to damage and fry instead of gently curl. My regular Karmin G3 clipless gave much better results on my hair than this, so yes, I'm very disappointed with this product.
This conditioner made a nice change from the shampoo which made my hair feel rough. Although I still think the shampoo and conditioner should come along with the keratin coppola treatment, like the Cocoa Keratin treatment that gives you everything for pre and post keratin.
Hair Styling Tools -Conair - Infiniti You Curl No Clamp Curling Iron
LauraWolfhart 6/24/2012 6:06:00 PM
Didn't like it much. The barrel proved to be very slippery and the 3 finger glove is just impractical. Didn't get the results I wanted and the price just isn't worth the trouble. I got a Karmin Clipless curling iron from safrons and it's been 100 times better than this.
This worked fine as long as it lasted. It's light and dried my hair quickly enough, but this only went on for about 5 months and then the heating started to fail. This isn't the first time CHI has failed so soon, which is why I'm quitting on chi products for good. I can't believe I chose this over the Karmin salon pro hair dryer which my stylist recommended but I preferred chi because it's a bigger brand name :(
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Dabur Vatika Hair Oil
LauraWolfhart 6/19/2012 11:48:00 PM
This has a very strange smell, which I think is due to the neem and amla. It kinda smells like lemons and coconuts, but not really, and the longer you leave it on your hair, the worse it gets! It also made my scalp itchy so I stopped using it. I’m now using Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan oil instead and it’s very light and the smell is very subtle. I love it and my hair is really improving!
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - Wild Growth Hair Oil
LauraWolfhart 6/19/2012 10:44:00 PM
A lot of people seem to like this product but I just couldn't handle the SMELL. Urgh!!! I hated it and I didn't see much difference with my hair growth either so I changed over to Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan oil and it worked a lot quicker. It smells much better too!
Hair Styling Tools -Conair - Instant Heat 3/4 inch Curling Iron
LauraWolfhart 6/18/2012 10:00:00 PM
Cheap won't get you too far when it comes to curling irons. This one is good for occasional use but regular curling just gets your hair damaged :( I had to push my budget higher to get a Karmin G3 clipless curling iron but I'm so glad I did! Faster, smoother and shinier curls that didn't fall out within the hour like they did with this conair.
Hair Styling Tools -Conair - Instant Heat 1/2 inch curling iron
LauraWolfhart 6/18/2012 9:12:00 PM
I guess you get what you pay for when it comes to curling irons. I bought this thinking I was getting a bargain but I think I'll be spending a lot more on getting my hair back to health! My hair is now very dry and I hated the results from this curling iron! I'm slowly seeing improvement now that I have a more expensive curling iron (not too much though). The Karmin G3 clipless curling iron has proved to be MUCH better, safer and easier to use than this cheapo.
I can say that liked it but it's not excellent. I changed over to the very recommended Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil which deeply conditions, smoothes and prevents hair loss. My clients (I’m a hairstylist) are also using it and have already noticed a significant improvement in their hair's health. As for my own hair, I've also noticed that it's stronger, shinier and a lot less frizzy. Plus, Pro Naturals also serves as a heat protectant, so I'm especially happy with it as I blow dry my hair regularly :)
Hair Styling Tools -Farouk CHI - Chi Rocket Blow Dryer
LauraWolfhart 6/7/2012 10:08:00 PM
Too expensive for what it's worth. Chi hair dryers have always turned out to be faulty and short lived, I'm giving up completely on this brand. If anyone's interested in using a PROFESSIONAL hair dryer then choose the Karmin Salon Pro Professional hair dryer. A 2000 watt motor (longlasting), multiple settings, cool shot and pure ceramic heat will give you the professional results that Chi lacks.
Terrible. Very dry and just the opposite of what I was looking for. The best shampoo so far for hair loss is Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo. It helped my dry and frizzy hair immensely, plus it tackled hair loss efficiently. The argan oil deeply hydrates my hair and makes the strands more resilient to make them grow out thicker and stronger :)
