Default Product Details



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

Ooh, and I also noticed with this conditioner is that no matter how much scraping I do, the product always settles at the bottom all neat. I think that's pretty cool.

SMH I have too much time on my hands. Well, I actually don't but...don't judge me!

Default Curl Junkie Coffee Coco Curl Creme

Here's what this one looks like. I haven't seen many reviews on this. This will definitely be used for twisting. I placed a dab on my hand and I really had to work it in for my skin to absorb it. I think my hair and skin absorb stuff at a similar pace.

This kind of reminds me of a cross between the Oyin Whipped Pudding and the Qhemet CTDG. It's kind of pasty but it's thick, smooth and creamy as well.

The scent: I was expecting something coconut-y and coffee-y, but I'm not feeling the scent. It kind of smells like glue to me Just a hint.

Great thread! I'll be on the lookout. I love taking pics to show products too. Consistency is important.

Thanks! It's the shatter. I didn't think the camera really did it much justice

Yea. I like to see a product's consistency because it gives me an idea on how to use it

Bee Mine "Bee Hold Curly Butter" Coconut Cream Scent



About 3/4 way through. My apologies, but since I won't be repurchasing just wanted to get it up on here.



Texture: Wet, creamy, non-sticky (similar to what CocoT said about "Curl Rehab)."

Smell: Nothing like coconut!!! Horrid! I think it's a cross of furniture cleaner, medicine, and something else I can't put my finger on :yuck:

After buying this a few times, I've found the scent to be inconsistent. Sometimes it does smell okay and sometimes its off and gives me migraines.

This is really helpful to us who are reluctant to buy "off the ground" products and want to see what stuff looks like. What a great idea CocoT

Yeah, that's what I was thinking!

Can we make requests and if someone has the product they can post pics and review it?

I know we have threads, blogs and youtube but haing it all in one spot helps.

Yeah I was waiting on requests. Being a PJ is very helpful in this particular thread.

Yea!

I worried that maybe y'all would think a thread like this could get a little messy with a whole bunch of different products and stuff but... I don't mind messy sometimes.lol. At least when people search for product reviews they'll see what's here too. There's product reviews scattered all throughout many threads. The more the merrier! I love product reviews.

Aw baby...I like this thread but TBH I'm too lazy to take pics of all of my products unless there is something wrong with them...lol. Every time I try to post a pic on the app from my phone it messes up. Lemme try again...
