Conditioner - Palmer's - Coconut Oil Formula Repairing Conditioner

5.0

Jul/02/2014

Texture
Thick and creamy but easy enough to spread. Not a "slippery" conditioner. I follow it with something watery to detangle.

Scent
I will keep buying this mainly for the smell. Straight out of the tube the smell is a chemically/coconut scent. What I love is how the coconut smell lingers in my hair. It makes my hair smell delicious!

I have thick afro …

Conditioner - Clairol - Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner

Jun/30/2014

I can't believe it took me so long to try this conditioner! A girl I know told me she used this (in response to me complimenting how amazing her hair smelled). It has incredible slip for detangling and makes my frizzy afro textured hair feel very moisturized. It was inexpensive to boot! I always stayed away from the Herbal Essences brand but this conditioner works for me. I'd recommend …Read more

I was interested in trying this conditioner for at least a year and I finally ordered it with my latest haul of conditioners.

Smell
I really wasn't expecting this to smell so bad! I'm smelling it now, wracking my brain for a way to describe it. It's weird..not sweet or floral..not powdery or tropical. It's kind of citrusy but not in a good way. It smells like …

Hair Treatments - Aussie - 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioner

This is a decent protein-free conditioner. I like the smell and consistency but I dislike the packaging. It's impossible to get every last bit out and I'm one of those cheapies who likes to use every.last.drop.
Anyway, this stuff is pretty cheap and I keep it in my beauty arsenal because decent protein-free conditioners are hard to find.

Hair Treatments - L'Oreal Paris - ELVIVE Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm

Apr/21/2014

I was lusting over this product for months..I'm a sucker for deep conditioners.

Texture:
A thick creamy consistency that spreads well. It's thick enough to qualify as a deep conditioner but it still has good "slip".

Scent:
I found the fragrance to be very pleasant and light. I can't compare it anything but if you go to a retailer that …

Sweet almond oil is my favorite natural oil! I use it the following ways:
1. pre-shampoo treatment
2.makeup remover
3.face serum
4.cuticle oil
5. "booster" for conditioners
6.hair styling

It's super versatile and I prefer it over coconut, olive, grapeseed, and jojoba oil.

Feb/27/2014

This is a nice, protein rich shampoo that I've been using every other wash. It really strengthens my fine hair and makes my highlights look brighter. It has a great lather, a light coconut smell, and a creamy consistency. My dad's girlfriend gave this to me so I don't know if I will repurchase because it's kind of expensive but maybe I'll buy it again. It's a pretty …Read more

Scrubs - Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub (with lemon, papaya, and caffeine)

5.0

Feb/26/2014

I'm about to finish my 3rd bottle and I will absolutely repurchase. I don't care about the smell (mild/lemony) or it's ability to "wake me up" (I have espresso for that). I use this because it keeps my skin color even and toned. It really does keep it looking "bright" and provides gentle exfoliation.

I'm African American and I've noticed …

***This review is for the Silicon Bambu NOT the Original***

I love this stuff. It has great slip which makes detangling my afro-textured hair super easy. It smells pretty good (tropically) and it's not expensive. I finished my 16oz tub today and ordered the 60oz tub from amazon yesterday. I'm glad I didn't know about the mineral oil prior to purchase/use because I …

Lotions/ Creams - Lac Hydrin - Lac-Hydrin Five Moisturizing Lotion

Feb/26/2014

If you have KP this (and Amlactin) will pleasantly surprise you. I bought both and used at least one every night and after a week or two my bumps were gone. If you stop using it the bumps will come back but it definitely works with consistent use! Having KP sucks but it's exciting to know there are lotions and creams out there that you can treat it with--even better is that you can buy them …Read more
