Question Marie Dean Hair Products

Someone inquired about this line on Nappturality and its intriguing to say the least. They have products that re oil-less, butter-less, cone-less and protein-less. They also have sample sizes,delicious sounding scents (offered unscented too) and charge a flat rate shipping rate of $7.95. Most interesting is that Amla and Brahmi creamy hair butter....any takers?

I am not interested either...and mostly it is because trying to remember their code for what ingredient is either missing or added is too much work. The ingredient code key should be on every page with the product.

Oh...hippychic, there was a complete list of ingredients a bit downward on the page of each product. First the 'key' ingredients were listed, then a description, then full list of ingredients.
thanks windflower!

@Windflower its pretty easy to understand. When you see oil-less, butter-less or pro-less its obvious whats lacking there. When cones are present it will have this symbol ll, lanolin containing products will say lanolin in the title and PLUS just means there are added extra oils and butters.

@hippychic some (only some of the Vitamin E hair butters) not all products contain lanolin. The full ingredient list is at the bottom of the page.

I figured more people would be interested because there is pretty much something for everybody.

Like I said, cones aren't my enemy, my hair likes oils and butters, so I don't need such a specialized line. But, those with more tempermental hair may find their holy grail products. Best wishes to her, though.

I got enough shea-based butters to last me, till the twelfth of never.

I actually liked the way the products read. I really want to order the amla hair butter, apricot/coconut condtioner, herbal henna butter cream and the conditioning styling cream. Only problem for me are the prices. Those 4 items don't come in sample sizes, of course. And $12 is A LOT for 4 oz. So unless I hit the lottery, I pass.

I'm all about Mango butter right now.

The Mango Cocoa Butter Vitamin E hair butter looks good to me. So does the Mango Hair Pudding. Thanks for the link!

I think some of the products look interesting. Before I clicked the link I was expecting some site that just looked half-a** so the site format was nice. The price point is not the business for me and that's the major factor for me so I'll pass. Not even the sample sizes.

I've sent her a couple of e-mails about products with no response so far. Red flags go up when a vendor doesn't respond in a timely fashion.
