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.
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
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 …Read more
I bought this on the recommendation of my dermatologist. We are testing various acne treatments, and my skin gets dry. Aveeno provides a good basic moisturizer that helps to reduce redness. It does not feel heavy or greasy.
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.
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.
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
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
