Conditioner - Jessicurl - Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment

I love this product's natural, CG-friendly ingredients list, but my admiration stops there. I found this to have very little slip, and I really had to work at getting my tangles out, which is not a problem I have with my beloved Curl Junkie Curl Rehab. Additionally, once my hair dried, it was apparent that this conditioner did not impart enough moisture. I'm glad I got a sample of this …Read more

Hair Treatments - DevaCurl - Melt Into Moisture Mask

I will preface this by saying this is not for the usual purpose of this hair mask. So here goes: I was clinically depressed, and then my dad died, and then I didn't comb my hair for a month. I kept it in a ponytail and didn't wash or detangle it. When I finally tried, I got nowhere. Enter this hair mask. I used LIBERAL handfuls on my wet, freshly shampooed but matted hair, finger combed …Read more

This just didn't have enough hold for my 2c, porous, dense but thick hair. I smoothed it on wet hair and scrunched as per instructions, then diffused, I got limp, floppy waves that fell in my face all day. It did NOT work on second day hair, either. I attempted to refresh it and just got frizz. I'm sticking with my HG Ultra Defining Gel.

I use this on 3rd or 4th day hair to calm down frizz and puffiness. I usually style with the Ultra Defining Gel on day one hair, then on subsequent days refresh with Jessicurl's Awe Inspiraling Spray. However, past day two, I get a LOT of frizz and unmanageable puffiness. I take care of that by using this Deva Curl Styling Cream - a few pumps in my hands, smear them together for even …Read more

Styling Products - DevaCurl - Ultra Defining gel

Feb/23/2017

I love this gel for my fine, porous, dense 2c hair. I get tons of defined waves and even some ringlets that last for a few days whenever I use this. I never, ever get crunch if I use it over the B'Leave In leave in gel. That product not only prevents crunch, but volumizes and boosts my curl. The two products are my dream team Holy Grails when used together. I have repurchased both already in …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Clump Crusher Water Resistant Mascara

Nov/08/2015

I found this to be a very average mascara. As advertised, it separated and defined my lashes beautifully. Unfortunately, that is where the benefits ended. It offered little extra length and absolutely no volume. I could coat and coat and coat my lashes to no avail and it would still look minimal. It also is NOT waterproof - I'd always get some smudging by the end of the day, and almost all …Read more

Jul/17/2015

This is a great conditioner for my dry, porous, 2b-c hair. It's moisturizing without weighing my hair down, has an addictive sweet, citrus, almost Skittles-like smell, and my comb slips quickly and effortlessly through my hair when I comb it wet while it is saturated with this conditioner. Only drawback is that it can be hard to get the last amount out of the bottle so I wish this came with …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - La bella - Lots of Curls Extra Hold Styling Gel

This is a good gel! I only need a small amount to get strong hold with no crunch, and it costs less than $3 at Rite Aid. The smell is very light and pleasant and isn't really detectable in my hair after it dries. It works well both when I air dry and when I diffuse and doesn't take forever to air dry.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara

Jun/18/2015

Not even remotely waterproof. It went on gunky and sticky and stayed that way. I had smears all over my undereye area after a few hours, and I didn't even have to use remover to wipe this off my lashes (NOT good if a mascara claims water-resistance). Additionally, this really made my eyes itch, not a good thing if part of my eye makeup is smeary and sticky - it was maddening not to be able …Read more

Jun/09/2015

This just doesn't have nearly enough moisture for my dry, porous, 2b-2c hair when used as a leave-in. The ingredients are CG but very minimal - just one or two very light moisturizers and a handful of fruit extracts that I suspect are there solely to impart fragrance and give it a "natural" aura. I've repurposed it as a second-day refresher, used in tiny dabs in places where …Read more
