June Hits & Misses

MISSES

Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk - man my hair felt great as long I was in the house. I went out side in the hot summer sun and my hair turned into a big super dry mess. Horrible!

Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner - my hair felt waxy and coated. I don't like that feeling.

Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Gel - my hair was dry, frizzy, and felt coated.

I had to do a double take. I was like where did all this moisture and slip come from?? I am so excited!!!!

Instant Hit KBN Body Butters....
Watermelon and the Mango smell soooo good. Watermelon reminds me of watermelon jolly ranchers or DB's Watermelon Seed Body Oil. Neither have a strong scent but a very subtle lingering scent. I'm in love again. I feel a haul coming on!

OK...Boticelli Botanicals Brulee
Very nice smooth texture and not drying the scent (Tropical Vacation) was nice not strong BUT I get the same results with Ecocustard lol which is wayyy cheaper...I will not be repurchasing.

It probably won't have much of a hold when it dries, must find something to mix this with for some degree of hold.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

I like it but I need more moisture but I have used it on dry hair and it wasn't bad. Not a repurchase for me.
