I was in Sallys (again) browsing and wasting time, looking at the curly hair products that I've seen many times and not bought as they're too expensive and probably won't work. The shop assistant came up wiht a tub in her hand and said "try this." It was from the afro-carribean hair section, which for some reason in the Glasgow store is opposite the hair section.
Anyway, I asked if it would be too rich or thick or greasy for my very fine and easily over conditioned hair. She said she'd recommended it to a girl with hair like mine and she loved it. There's many products in the range, and all the others would apparently be too much for my hair, but she insisted I try it.
It's Natural Hair Care - Organic Root Stimulator - Lock and Twist GEL
Ingredients: Water, Coconut MIlk, Soybeal Oil, PVP, Polyquaternium-37, Propyl Paraben, Methyl Paraben, DMD Hydantoin, Propylene Glycol, Fragrance, Sucrose
She let me try a little bit in a tub she opened in the store, as I was worried the consistency looked like wax. It's actually almost like jelly, and I had to 'pick' a bit out with my fingers but then it smoothed into my hair like a liquid/water gel and left it SOOO shiney (this is on dry hair though.) It was a teeny tiny bit crispy but I prob used too much on one bit of hair. She said it is strong hold but doesnt dry crispy and lightly moisturising.
The ingredients do look wonderful - simple with nothing unnecessary. No silicones. No proteins. Ingredients for hold (PVP) and natural moisturisers (coconut milk and soybean oil.) I'm going to wash my hair tomorrow as per my normal routine then use JUST this product and hopefully *fingers crossed* it will turn out well.
Anyway else used this? Oh it was about £4.50 which is one of the cheaper items in Sallys! It's a clear tub with a purple top and purple writing.
