Worst of all the Graces, it smells like baby rash cream to me, I don't care how many people think it doesn't. I wanted to like it so much, but that initial oily smell just made me sick. I was so thankful I bought it from a place that I could take it back to.
First off I can not believe that my hair turned out this shiny I was scared to death it would fall out. The smell of amnonia was so strong I had to have the window raised and a fan on me the whole time it was on my hair. The smell just went up my nose and I could still smell it even hours later in my mind. My hair is shiny and has a pretty dark brown color but I will never buy it again. If my husband had not been home I would have washed it out and not been able to follow through with it for fear that I would have passed out from the smell.
This does not smell like clean soap to me, it smells like the dog shampoo that I use on my poodle. I was expecting to really like this but I am sorry I can not. I am sticking with Amazing Grace. .

I would give this a 10 if I could. I love this stuff. It makes my hair so smooth, and now humidity doesnt make my hair frizz. I can now use this and blow my hair and go out the door. I hardly use my straightening iron anymore. I hope they never stop making it.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Dream Angels Divine

Divine reminds me of Gap Dreams, but I am allergic to it. .
Halo is discontinued and I am not sorry I am allergic to this one to. Heavenly is the only one I can wear.
I love Very Sexy. It lasts all day long and smells delicious. I tried this before and didn't like it, now after receiving this new bottle in a swap I realize that the first time I tried it the perfume was old. Freshness makes all the difference in this scent. I am adding this one to my HG list. My Husband loves it too from the very first time he smelled it on me.
Styling Products -John Frieda - Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse

This thickening mousse really does make my hair thicker. I am growing out my hair and some days it goes limp especially during humid weather, but this mousse makes me feel like I have somebody else's hair because my hair is never this thick with this much volume. I love the root lifter and the hair spray too. Very comparable to high end beauty shop products.
Styling Products -John Frieda - Frizz-Ease Hair Serum
wscbrown 5/11/2008 3:06:00 PM
I love the John Frieda Frizz Ease Hair Serum. The key is to only use a little bit about a dime sized amount on soaking wet hair and comb it through. My hair is highlighted and a bit frizzy. This helped the very first time and just keeps getting better. It is also good for humidity and to make your hair stay smooth while you sleep. I woke up this morning and my hair was just as smooth as it was when I went to sleep. Rainy days don't make my hair go back curly again either. I love this stuff.
Styling Products -Wen by Chaz Dean - Sweet Almond Mint Styling Ceme

I have been using the Sweet Almond Mint Styling Cream for a week now. I like it, but I never thought I'd rebuy it again. Not until this morning. I forgot to put it in my hair and I was blow drying my hair and suddenly it just didnt feel as nice as before. I realized that I forgot to use the cream, my hair was still damp so I put some in and instantly it calmed down my frizzies and put shine in my hair. You don't have to use but 1 or 2 pumps so this will last forever.
Conditioner -Wen by Chaz Dean - Fig Cleansing Conditioner
wscbrown 3/22/2008 2:43:00 PM
I have tried all 5 of the Wen Cleansers. I have to say that Fig is the best one for my hair type. Fig made it soft, and full of body. The others leave my hair soft but a little flat. I have highlighted hair and I usually have tangles even using conditoner but with Wen I never lost any hair and my hair was completely tangle free. I wish it didn't cost as much or you got more for your money, but in the long run this will save me money on getting my highlights redone. Update: My hair felt like it needed regular shampoo because I guess I am just not used to the conditioning cleanser. I used my regular Pantene for Smooth Hair and lost a bunch of hair and had tangles like before. Today I went back to the Wen. When I use Wen my hair has no tangles and I might have 2 or 3 hairs fall out during picking it out. I love Wen.
I work in a callcenter and sit around people all day long. There is this one guy that sits beside me that complains if he smells any kind of perfume no matter how light it is. He has told me that I make him sneeze even if I just take a shower and don't have any scent on other than being clean. I got Mark Pure and wore it yesterday at work, he complained and my supervisor said all I smell is clean and told him to shut up. I plan on wearing it every day at work until he asks to be moved. Mark Pure does smell clean, and fresh but also smells so comforting like a clean sheets in the warm summer breeze.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Warm Vanilla Sugar- Seductive perfume mist
wscbrown 2/14/2008 7:51:00 AM
I tried the Warm Vanilla Sugar Perfume Mist the day I got it and hated it. The next day I tried it again and loved it. It lasts forever. Don't be thrown off from the initial smell. After the dry down it is a toasty warm vanilla smell. I think it reminds me of Aviance Night Musk when it first came out and smelled so delicious. I am going to get the Sensual AMber perfume next. The bottle is gorgeous. It looks so expensive.
My recently double processed hair is dry and frizzy. I shampooed, conditioned and then put the clear formula on my towel dried hair. I left it on 5 min and then rinsed it out. I could feel that my hair was softer immediately. I blowed my hair dry and wa lah it was smoother, softer and 90% less frizzier. I love this stuff and I will use it again and again. The smell disappated after rinsing out.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Irresistible Apple

I was looking forward to smelling this. I was really disappointed this smells nothing like apple.I don't even want to give the splash away. I have been spraying it in the bathroom for air freshener.
