Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion

3.0

Jun/21/2010

After shampooing, I wrap my relaxed hair using the Motions foaming wrap lotion and wrap strips. Then, I sit under a bonnet dryer. The product does what it is supposed to do. My hair is straight and smooth. BUT it dries out your hair. I have stopped using Motions and started using Paul Mitchell foaming pomade.

Hair - Phyto - Phytospecific Relaxer Index 1

3.0

Mar/28/2010

My hair stylist talked me into trying the Phyto relaxer. She claimed that it was more "natural" and that it would make my hair healthier. Well, after a few months with Phyto, I switched stylists and switched back to Affirm. Phyto is not a regular relaxer. It made my hair wavy and not straight. After going to the gym, I felt like I had a mini Afro underneath my old relaxed hair. If you …Read more

Styling Products - TIGI - Bed Head Control Freak Serum

2.0

Jun/25/2008

I have 4C relaxed and highlighted hair. I bought this because the Beauty Brains (http://thebeautybrains.com/) recommended products with glycerin and propylene glycol for heat protection when blow drying.
Tresemme Heat Tamer turned my hair into straw. So I decided to try Control Freak Serum. It made my hair straighter, but it tangled my hair into knots and made it feel dry and brittle. I will …

Styling Products - TRESemmé - Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

2.0

Jun/01/2008

I bought this after reading a post on heat protectants at Beauty Brains (http://thebeautybrains.com/). I do not notice any difference in my hair when using this product before blow drying. I can't tell if it is working or not, and since I need to be WOW-ed by hair products, I will not repurchase this.

Lotions/ Creams - Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

Dec/08/2007

This is my go-to hand cream! I buy several at a time for my car, purse, office, etc. My hands are very dry, especially in the winter. This hand cream keeps my hands soft and smooth. Use just a dab and rub it in well. I wish that they put it in a flip-top. I prefer the fragrance-free cream. I did not like the scent of the fast-absorbing Neutrogena hand cream.

Lotions/ Creams - Olay - Moisturinse in shower body lotion

2.0

Dec/08/2007

I have very dry skin, and I wanted to like this product. Unfortunately, this product is just an ineffective gimmick. I will not purchase it again. I used it as directed, and afterward, my skin felt filmy. It was probably a good idea in the marketing meeting at Olay, but it's not a good real world product. I will stick to a regular post-shower moisturizer. I prefer Aveeno or Nivea for daytime …Read more

Styling Products - Frederic Fekkai - Brilliant Glossing Creme

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/23/2007

I have 4C relaxed and highlighted hair. I use this glossing cream as a quick moisturizer before I flat iron my hair on days that I don't wash my hair. On days that I wash my hair, I use Biosilk. The Fekkai glossing cream is ok, but I will not purchase it again. It's a nice light cream, but it's too expensive ($26.50 for a 7oz tube).

Love this product! I am Afr-Am with 4C relaxed hair. I washed my hair, rinsed it, and put in the Emergencee. I put a plastic cap on my hair and covered that with a towel. After 1 hour, I rinsed out the Emergencee and used a moisturizing conditioner (Humectress) with a plastic cap and towel again. After 1 hour, I rinsed out conditioner. The result was fabulous silky hair. My hair is shiny, and my …Read more
