I was excited to receive a product that would help keep my hair straight longer than a week. I followed the directions but the shampoo made my hair dry and brittle. I used the conditioner but it didn't help much. After I blow dried and flat ironed it was not as straight as I thought it would be. I ended up using my flat iron every day for it to be straight. I would not use this product again..
I received this texture manageability system from NaturallyCurly.com. i was really excited about the product because i have been wanting to straighten my hair. I made sure to follow the 4 easy steps. The instructions were very easy to follow. The shampoo. Really stripped my hair and made it feel dry. The conditioner added a little moisture back but not enough for my hair. I was able to get my hair very straigh after bliw drying and flat ironing. The results did not last as long as i expected. I did enjoy a few days of straight hair though!
received this system from naturally curly.com to review. I followed the instructions exactly as written and I will have to say that I was pleased with the results. My issue is that I wake up with poofy hair in the mornings. It did great with the straightening yet the frizziness wasn't as tamed down as I thought it would be. But I guess that's a good thing and my hair might actually revert back. The first part of the process, I washed my hair twice because it made my hair feel stiff and stripped and part two made it a little better and tingled a bit. Straightening wasn't as bad as I thought but the following day( it wasn't as humid as the other summer days which was why I was holding out) I went out and my hairs shroomed up and got slightly tangled. To manage it without going over it again and risking heat damage, I'm just doing braid outs. I'd use it again just maybe when this southern humidity and heat subsides as the fall rolls in
I received this product to try out through NaturallyCurly. I got mine a little late, but finally, I was able to try it out. (Thank You!!) I've been reading about texture management systems and wanted to try it out. I've been really skittish about trying things like this, because I did not want to change my curl texture permanently. Anyway, I did try it, and for me, it did not really straighten my hair much. You do need to apply heat to achieve the full effect, but it does have ingredients in it which does cause a change in the inner structure of your hair. Even it if is temporary, it does take a minute to get the effects of the "chemical" out of my hair, and I really did not like that at all. I do not like this system and will not be using it again.
I was received this product to review by Naturally Curly, I was really excited to use this product because I had been looking for something I could use to straighten my hair without damaging it. Utter disappointment. It left my hair feeling like the product was just gunked up on my scalp and dry! It did straighten it a little bit but the fact it didn't last long is the reason I gave it the score that I did.
Great product! Please understand that this IS a chemical process. With that said my hair looked great. I followed all instructions including how to revert back to curly. I did not revert to my 4c texture. But as my new growth comes in I'll get to gauge the real over effect on my hair.
I received this product to review from naturallycurly.com and I was very excited. Once I used it, it was just complete disappointment. From the start it wasn't a good experience The shampoo left my hair really dry and stripped. The leave in conditioner did nothing to help moisturize my hair and did nothing to aid in detangling my hair. I have multiple hair textures and this kit didn't work for any of them. After 20 min. I blow out my hair and at that point I was very nervous my hair felt so dry. I flat ironed my hair and by the time I finished my entire head the parts that I started at 1st started to frizz up. By 30mins later my hair just looked like a blow out. This was just a fail for me. I wont be using this again I just don't like how dry and rough it made my hair feel.
I probably held out the longest on reviewing this product because I really wanted to see what it could do. My overall opinion is a thumbs down. I did not like this product, I felt like the process made it more difficult to complete my straightening process. The shampoo was not moisturizing at all, the leave in felt like glue on my hair. The finished results was the most softest blowout i ever had but I was shocked that I even had hair left at the end. I just purchased a new hair dryer so I do not think that was an issue. So i flat ironed and rocked my hair straight for a week. We had some very pleasant summer temps here in Maryland lately so the first couple of days were fine, until humidity showed up and it was over. I do not think this product should be used in the humid summer temps. This may be a good product for the spring and winter.
I was asked to review this product by Naturallycurly.com. My hair is a mixture of 4 a and 4b. After following the instructions to.the letter, my hair was very soft and manageable. The only issue I have is the edges of my hair aren't completely straight. Otherwise, I am enjoying the versatility of the product.
I received the product and followed the directions exactly. I felt as though I still had to use a flat iron as much as before. The second day I woke up and it was as if I did not have any of thee product in my hair. I do admit my hair did feel nice and soft but it did not change to amount of work need to get my hair straight and did not reduce the amount of times it needed to be straightened. This product seems good but it just did not work for me.
I received this system from Naturallycurly.com to do a review. I followed the instructions to a T. I washed my mane using step 1 2 time, my hair is very thick and that was all the shampoo . Rinse shampoo out, Sectioned in 4 . I then proceed to apply the leave in step 2 of the process. I was a little scared because my hairline in the front , there was a tingling sensation! Don't know if that was suppose to happen but, detangled waited the 20 mins and took on the task of blow drying section by section. Hair was very soft but felt rough. Next flat iron time, ummm let's just say I may need to purchase a flat iron because mine shut down and I had to wait 1 hr to finish my hair. I stepped outside for 5 mins and the bush I walked back inside with was not what I walked out there with! Lol , this product is not for me, sorry! But remember "Everything isn't for everybody!"
I received this system from naturally curly.com to review. I followed the instructions exactly as written and I will have to say that I was pleased with the results. My issue is that I wake up with poofy hair in the mornings. For some reason I am now sweating during the night. After the system, my hair was not proofy after waking. I was considering getting a perm and this system has made me decide against a perm. I love the flexibility if natural hair. I will definitely use the system again. The only thing I wish was that my hair was shinier after flat ironing. But a little gloss will cover that.
Well, it went on just ok but not enough shampoo for my hair. I didn't like that the touch of the hair was very dry, lacked shine, porous with gritty feel. I normally give my hair a little spray of moisture when brush my hair, I tried but my hair when immediately to wave. I was do frustrated that I just braided my and called it quits. I wouldn't buy this product. I also think that the product packaging should be the opposite. . The one use should be in the tear and the maintenance should be in the bottles.
I recieved this system by naturallycurly.com to review and give my opinion of it. I followed the directions exactly and my hair turned out awesome! My ends were a bit fluffy but it was dead hair that needed to be trimmed. I have fine to normal hair strands that are 3c in front sides and very back are 4a and the rest is 4b. All it took was one pass to get my hair straight with the flat iron. With that being said, I have gotten these results using other products when straightening my hair. This kit just got me there in fewer steps. I would not purchase this product again unless it was at a reduced price.
I was sent this product from Naturally Curly to give my honest review on it. I shampooed my hair twice with step one to make sure that my hair was clean of excess oils and residue that would keep the leave in from doing its job. Well the cleansing shampoo which is step one did strip my hair of everything and shockingly it did not tangle my hair and my hair didn't really feel drying just extra clean. I then proceeded to step 2, the inner active leave in. I sectioned my hair in 4's and lightly applied the leave in from roots to tips as suggested by the directions and then proceeded to detangle my hair to make sure the product was applied to every strand. After completing each section I then let it sit for the 20 minutes required before proceeding to step 3, the blow drying phase. Shockingly my hair did get a little tangled when I proceeded to blow dry but it was quickly resolved. Once I finished blow drying my entire head, my hair felt soft to the touch. I then sectioned my hair again a started the final process, step 4, flat ironing. I started in the back and flat ironed small sections with just one pass using the chase method with my rat tail comb and continued to do this until each section was completed. As I was going through the process. I could feel that my hair was left extremely soft to the tough and had an amazing shine to it that I did not expect to get with this product. Now that it has been a while since I have applied this product, I have not done any touch ups with the flat iron and my hair is still silky smooth and looks amazing. Even with the ran and me taking hot baths in this 110+ degree weather we have, my hair has not tried to revert back which is a huge plus. Who wants to take the time out to do all this work on their natural hair only to have it revert back in little to no time?! I am overall very pleased with this product line and whenever I want to straighten my hair I will definitely use it again!! Plus the directions were super easy to follow!!
The African Pride Natural Miracle Texture Manageability System was sent to me by Naturally Curly to use and give my honest review. I don’t straighten my hair often and was very happy to receive this system. This system claims to straighten textured hair and best of all, prevent reversion, which is a common problem with most naturals who want to wear their hair straight. This product comes with 2 systems: a straightening system and a maintenance system. The straightening system has a shampoo and a leave in, while the maintenance system contains a shampoo and a rinse out conditioner to use to maintain the straight style. I decided to test the pH of the straightening system. The shampoo had a pH of 7 and the leave-in had a pH of 1! I was so scared to put that in my hair because solutions that are that acidic are known to dissolve hair. However, the instructions highly suggested applying a light coating of the leave in to prevent adverse effects. The shampoo (step 1) was very stripping, but that was expected. I proceeded to apply the leave-in (step 2) and let it process for 20 minutes per the instructions. My ears, neck, and forehead were burning slightly. I believe that was due to the acidity of the leave-in. I would suggest staying away from your scalp when applying the leave-in and applying a light coating of oil to your ears, nape, and neck to combat this. I highly suggest deep conditioning and detangling the day before or right before using this system because a lot of heat is involved. Also, the leave-in was very sticky and didn't provide enough slip for me to detangle within the alloted 20 minutes before blow drying. I am so glad that I detangled prior to using the system. Step 3 was blow drying. After blow drying a few sections with my wide tooth comb, I decided to use the tension method to dry the rest of my hair. It became too hard to comb through my hair and it was causing breakage. The tension method helped to straighten my hair greatly. Next was flat ironing (step 4). I flat ironed 1-2 inches of hair at a time and rolled each section with magnetic rollers. The result was very, very big hair. It was very fluffy with lots of movement, but extremely big. I knew that this system would straighten my hair because of the amount of heat involved. The biggest expectation of this system for me was to see how it’ll hold up to humidity and it failed miserably. By the end of the day my hair was a big, fluffy fro. I give the system two curls for the easy-to-follow instructions, but the results were not pleasing.
I received my Natural Miracle Texture Manageability System by requesting to review the product from naturallycurly.com. I have 4b/c hair that is high porosity and thick. I open the package and followed the directions precisely as stated. During the wash, I noticed that my hair lost its silky feel and felt really dry and a little stiff or brittle if I may say. I proceeded to put the conditioner in and regained the softness and silkiness back. As a note, the conditioner does not have a very pleasant smell. Being very careful, because the conditioner is very liquidly, I applied a little at a time to my hair to make sure I got my hair good. I let sit 20 minutes as directions stated and blow dried my hair out, something I normally don’t do. I noticed right away that my hair was not as thick by blow drying it. I did not really see any curl pattern in my hair after blow drying. I proceeded to flat iron my hair because it wasn’t completely straight. I have professional flat irons with a temperature of 400. After flat ironing my hair it was very straight and soft but dry, so I added some coconut oil to my hair, brushed it in and voila, it turned out lovely. My hair looks like I have a perm/relaxer in it. My mother actually thought it was relaxed because it was very straight. In my honest opinion this is a nice product for those that would like their hair straight with a relaxed look. I normally do not have my hair flat ironed because before the day is over with, it’s back frizzy. It has been 3 days now and my hair is still straight with no problem. I would use and recommend this product, however I would say results very per person depending on their hair. I will post pictures of my hair on my Facebook page as well as naturallycurly.com Facebook page. I loved the product and will possibly continue to use it, especially when I want my hair straight. Thank you African Pride and naturallycurly.com for the opportunity to try and review the Natural Miracle Texture Manageability System.
I received the Natural Miracle Texture Manageability System as a result of me requesting this product for the opportunity to try and review. My honest and unpaid opinion of this product is 3 curls. I have medium 4a hair that's currently in the in between stage and my curl definition and moisture levels have come a long way since my big chop, with that said I made sure to follow the directions carefully to avoid any damage to my hair. First I looked for the type of results I wanted for my hair in the instruction booklet provided in the kit. I chose the option that allows hair to revert back to natural quicker. I rinsed my hair with warm water to help remove some product from the wash n go I was wearing and then washed with the step 1 shampoo 3xs as suggested. I could tell when the shampoo had completely cleansed all product from my hair because it no longer had any slip and lost its elasticity. After rinsing the shampoo out, I used the step 2 leave in conditioner. The leave in conditioner brought back the slip, softness, and elasticity. I parted my hair in 4 big sections and 3 small sections in those 4 sections for easier root to tip application. A little of the leave in went a very long way on my hair. My curls became more defined but smaller in size which made no option for easy finger detangling, so I used a wide tooth comb. I left it to sit for 20 mins. and began the blow drying process. Now this wasn't as easy as I thought it would be because I expected my hair to not only be straight at the root but straight at the ends as well and detangling dry ends leads to breakage. Moving on, after blow drying, my hair felt dry but light as feathers, soft smooth roots but hard crunchy ends. I began flat ironing at 275 degrees and saw little difference from when I had blow dried it except on the ends, my ends did straighten out more. I took this opportunity to trim my ends and my finishing result after everything was fluffy straight hair with little moisture and shine. This product does straighten your hair but I get better results from my regular flat iron routine on the same low temp setting. I also want to mention that this product may just be one of those products that gives you better results the more times its used and infused with the hair during that 4-6 week period. Thanks African Pride and naturallycurly.com for the opportunity. UPDATE: During the first week of having this product in my hair, I experienced more shedding and breakage than normal even when wrapping my hair at night to preserve my straight style. My mother also gave this product a try, she has 4b color treated hair. She only washed 2xs with the shampoo and left the conditioner in for the suggested amount of time. During the application process her hair color began changing from the dark brown color she had to a lighter brown with a red undertone and when she began the blow drying process, she immediately experienced breakage and couldn't continue blow drying so she just rinsed it out.
This is my first time reviewing for naturally curly and I am super excited. Let me go on record and say I am not being paid this is my honest opinion. Okay lets dive right in. So I washed my hair with the step 1two times because I didn't like the way my hair became stiff after the first wash, but I wanted to follow the instructions, so I washed twice. The product is very watery and it slips right through you fingers so if you decide to buy the line keep that in mine when pouring the product into your hand. Step 2 is the same it is very watery and it does not change the feel of your hair much. I will say that once I rinsed out Step 1, the hair was not as stiff but I did not like the feel much. I added my heat protectant to my hair with step 2 because I don't take chances when it comes to my hair. Luckily for me, its just an oil so it would not have made that big of a difference and a little of it goes a long way. So I parted my hair into four sections and made sure that I coated the hair being sure not to over saturated as the instructions warn. When I blew out my hair, I was hopeful that all this work was going to be for a good cause. I have an HSI professional flat iron with heat settings of up to 410 degrees. I started at about 375 because I didn't want to damage my hair. I later turned the heat up because my hair still had the bushy feeling it does when I do my hair normally while natural and straighten it. I wrapped my hair and when I woke up the next morning proceeded to unwrap it only for the bushiness to be in full affect. My husband said it looks like it does when I normally press it and to me, that says it all. Why pay $10 for a product that gives you the same results as if you did your hair without the products. I do hair as a side hobby and I am known to be a pro at pressing hair so this is a complete let down. I gave it two curls because I can appreciate a company that is at least trying to give us the effect of a perm minus the harsh chemicals, but I have to say, it is not there yet. I will post pics from each stage of the process on my instagram so you can check it out if interested. My instagram name is amiller5209.
I was really excited about getting this product and straightening my 4b hair for the first time after my big chop. after reading the instructions I shampooed my hair three times like the package recommends and my hair was not happy. it has been 6 months since I have used shampoo and my hair went from soft and happy to hard and brittle, my texture was similar to a brillo pad. the leave in conditioner was okay at best but it didn't have much slip and it took me twice as long to detangle, blow dry and flatiron. I had to use my parnevu leave-in conditioner to complete the entire process without damaging and pulling out all of my hair. After flat ironing my hair, the texture was sticky, but it did get straight, it just wouldnt curl but that may have been the result of using another product just to make my hair manageable.. The only positive I had with this product was the fact that my hair went back to its natural state after co washing with my As I Am Coconut Co-wash and using the aphogee protein and deep conditioner. I definitely wouldn't purchase or use this product ever again. I have added pictures with the title "NEW African Pride Natural Miracle Texture Manageability System" if you want to see my results.
Well when I first received the package I was excited to try it. I instantly went into my kitchen and began the process. The smell of the product is very nice. I did like the consistency of the conditioner. It wasn't too heavy and it wasn't too light. Then I blow dried after waiting 20 minutes. It really didn't relax my curl pattern the way I expected so I proceeded to flat iron. It left my hair very fluffy and big, which I don't mind at all. It really didn't do what it said it would for my hair, but everyone's hair is different. I have low porosity, 4C hair. Overall I think it is a great product, it is just not as great for my particular grade of hair. Kudos to the manufacturer.
