So...since my latest mishaps I've decided to keep tabs on my product inventory by taking pics. I think this would be particularly helpful in cases of premature product spoilage and you need to contact the company or just product consistency. Sometimes I've watched youtube reviews or I've seen reviews on blogs and if they have close ups of the actual product, it may look differently than the one I have. That doesn't mean that it won't work as good, or that it will be worse, but it's just something to take notice of.
Or there are times when I want to try a product but I want to know what it looks like and all that jazz. I don't understand why some companies don't post pics of the actual product on their websites.
Anyway, enough with the rambling! I'm not so sure what will come from this thread but I hope it's helpful to someone else. If you have a question about a product, feel free to post it here. I may have it and I'll show what I can about it (aside from doing videos...lol) I just love hair products.
Here's the first product: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
I attached some photos below. I love the Curl Rehab and I consider it a staple, but here are my observations of this product. First, obviously the packaging is different. I have two jars and the older one isn't as vibrant as the new jar. I kind of like the new packaging better. I checked the labels and all of the ingredients are the same, word for word. So no need to worry if you have a different looking jar!
Secondly, the texture is creamy and it has a very wet texture to it. Maybe that's why I find it so moisturizing. But there's a hint of lumpiness in this conditioner. I can't put my finger on it, it's not granules or anything, it just feels kind of lumpy. Not a big deal...at least I don't think so. The newer conditioner looks darker than the older conditioner though. I wonder what that's about. They feel the same, but they do look a little different
Lastly, for now, I'll comment on the scent. Both jars are in the Strawberry Ice Cream Scent. Initially I wasn't too crazy about the scent, and I'm still not. To me, it didn't smell like strawberry ice cream. It smelled like strawberry... medicine. Actually kind of rancid. It's not horrid, and it's not a deal breaker, but the smell didn't leave me impressed. Well, that was the first jar (which I've had since maybe December). This new jar (purchased in April), it definitely smells like strawberry ice cream.
and I'm done now.lol
No wonder I ended up hating Curl Rehab! This was not the consistency of my product at all! It was grainy feeling...
