It is winter in Chicago. The weather just cannot make up its mind. One day, it is bitterly cold and dry, the next it is is humid. Then of course you have the fact that it looks like the humidifier on our new furnace doesn't work. Then there's my helmet, which likes to eat the hair on the back of my head. My poor curls. No protein treatment could save them. Going weeks without washing …Read more

Of this product so far, I have used RR@All, KK@all and KB@all. My natural hair is around 80% gray (white), 3A curls (so a bit porous) and virgin. This color takes to my hair very well, especially the parts that are completely white. If you want to make a commitment to bright, unnatural colors, this is an excellent product. If, however, you are fickle like me, you might want to think carefully …Read more

This is the product that Goldwell makes for correcting their Elumen hair color. I am unclear as to whether or not this product is supposed to completely remove the Elumen product from the hair, so I am giving it 3 stars. Having colored my ~80% grey (really, white) virgin hair with RR@All and deciding I wanted to change to KK@all, I purchased a bottle of Return from Amazon. One bottle made three …Read more

I am not a fan of the packaging, and that is the worst thing I have to say about this product. It is difficult to dispense and there's always a risk I'll knock the bottle over while I'm using the bottle. Having said that, I can't conceive of a better container. I've gotten into a very nice routine of spending some extra time with my Clarisonic Mia 2 nights a week and …Read more

The tallow ingredient in this leaves a very heavy coating on my hair, making it very difficult to comb and style. Tried it as a leave-in, but by the next co-wash, my hair felt dry and crispy.

I've used a lot of conditioners for co-washing over the last decade, but this one is the first one I've disliked. I went into Sephora looking for another brand and was steered towards this. It smelled wonderful in the store, and so I bought it, even though I wasn't 100% happy with a couple of the ingredients (which are, by the way, nothing spectacular, despite the hefty price tag) …Read more

Flakes like mad. I've read about mascara flaking before, but I'd never actually seen it. First few times I wore this, I couldn't figure out why my eyes itched so badly. Then I took a closer look at my face at the end of a work day, and it was literally COVERED in black dust. Extremely irritating.

I really do want to like this product. I massaged this into my twists a couple of days ago and they looked amazing. Good ingredients, good consistency, nice smell -- as long as you don't apply heat. And in order to style my hair as desired, I must use heat (tames the "pixie" hairs). As another reviewer mentions, the smell is pretty bad... reminds me of a fry cook I (briefly) dated …Read more

I happen to be one of the few people who is not anosmic to musk. I find this to be a particularly well-done one, though there is nothing spectacular about the fragrance itself. It is clean, light and faintly soapy and reminiscent of scented toilet paper. A very modern and floral interpretation of a musk, perfect for warmer weather. Dries down to what my 10 yr old daughter calls "old silk …Read more

I bought a 1.25" version of this thanks to the reviews here. Mine is the "Nanoceramic" version, which was about $10 more than the gold. It feels a bit more slick than the gold one. So far, the only thing I don't like about it is the power button placement. I may end up putting a small piece of tape over it when I use it.

With regards to the crispy ends, I have some …
