Hi Girls and Guys,
I just went CG a week ago, but I have been reading endless posts on this forum.
I was so desperate the last couple of days because my hair was just getting so dry... so I went out and grabbed a few samples here and there. Among them, Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter
from The Body Shop. There are a ton of bad reviews for this out there, but I think I might like this stuff... by accident!
I put it into my towel-dried hair and after a while I just went "what the heck? I smell like my aunts and my hair is getting poofy and has no curl..." I looked in the mirror for a while longer and then put my head in the sink and rinsed this stuff out. (I have chin-length 2a/b hair) BUT it was so soft as I was rinsing it out, so I thought I'd leave some in. Also, because I was so desperate for curls I grabbed my Garnier Fructis Curl Shaping Gel Spray
. I've had this gel for years and years now and somehow I always use it as a last resort when I try out a bunch of old products to see if anything works. It's still half-full and probably more than 5 years old... Yikes!
Bottom line: my hair looks great for the first time in a long time! It has some nice curls, no frizz, doesn't look oily or greasy, and feels soft.
I'm not sure if this is thanks to the Moisture Butter or just the gel doing its magic?! If it's the moisture butter, then I will have to go out and buy the actual thing, because as of now I only have half of the sample left. I think I will try the same thing again, without the moisture butter and see if the gel can give me these great curls by itself.
I was so excited I thought I should share this!
I might update tomorrow or in a few days to see if this holds up!
