The brush on this is the stand out feature. I really love this.
I have always liked a drier formula for mascara and my favorite has always been Prestige My Biggest Lashes but the brush was huge! I always had to wipe off excess mascara that got into my life while applying. Not with this! I love just combing thru the lashes getting nice and close to the base of the lady without …

Bought the shampoo and conditioner in #1 with the hopes it would help my super fine virgin hair. I used it for about a week. Just long enough to make me itchy all over my body! I have NEVER had this happen before!
What the heck do they put in this stuff?!

I've been using this line of shampoo and conditioner for nearly a year now and love it. I have color treated fine hair and wash daily. My hair is less frizzy, looks heathland. Recently I stopped coloring and I am growing out/embracing my gray and I will try the blue/blonde shampoo for toning my gray.

Weird name. Awesome product.

My hair? Naturally curly, Caucasian, Color treated, fine, shoulder length, daily washer.
I am guessing a 3A curl. Protein lover, weighs down easily.

Been Curly Girl for a year and tried tons of gels, creams, enhancers, oils but hadn't found that HG product. Went for a Deva cut at a local salon and the hairdresser recommended this …

I have tried quite a few co washes and this is by far my favorite. I love how clean my hair is but not stripped or heavy. Works like a dream,
The only thing I don't like about this is the tub. I have dropped a tub on the bathroom floor which makes a big mess. Would rather a tube or pump.

Otherwise HG

I have fine medium length 3A curls. I went CG about 6 months ago and I am so glad I have found this recipe. It is the best for my hair.

Now, I wash daily because my curls are fragile. After sleeping on them, the are a lost cause. Anyway, I had read on other sites how great flax seed gel is so when I found a simple recipe, I thought I would give it a try.

I use this …

My hair: Very fine, somewhat thin, 3A Curl, low porosity, color treated, layered, shoulder length. Daily washer.

HG stuff. I use this after washing and no other conditioner. Apply a pea size amount to soaking wet hair and scrunch and top with a little gel. My hair is night and day when I use this. I get great clumping, tons of curl (when I don't use this, I am more a wavy …

My hair: Very fine, 3A Curl, layered, shoulder length.

I bought these gloves when I went Curly Girl. I had read about micro fiber towels, etc. and when I saw these, I thought they might be useful and no one in the family would use my "towel" for anything other than it's intended use.

I wash daily and used these after each washing. I am amazed at the …

Oct/18/2014

I have super fine 3A curly, layered, shoulder length hair. Recently went Curly Girl but I find I have issues with products building up so I started looking for something sulfate free, silicone free but would do the job and without making my hair feel like straw.

This totally fills the bill. I wont go and say it's HG only after a few uses but I am hopeful that I will be able to …

Aug/27/2014

I picked up sample pack of this to try. I wanted a good protein treatment on my fine, wavy/curly hair in the hopes that a solid dose of protein would help my hair curly up more.

This did not do it. After using the treatment my hair is overly soft and kind of limp. I think this would work better for someone with straight hair. I will stick with Joico K-Pak instead for protein …
