Arrojo Haircare - I am so tempted!

Nick Arrojo is on QVC now. I am so tempted to buy his curl kit for $33.00. It has a conditioner, a styling cream and a curl cream. The curl cream is a literal silicone cocktail!!! Is there a single silicone missing from this list?

NGREDIENTS: WATER (AQUA), OCTYLDODECYL NEOPENTANOATE, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, CYCLOMETHICONE, VA/CROTONATES/VINYL NEODECANOATE COPOLYMER, PEG/PPG-18/18 DIMETHICONE, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, CETETH-20, DIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONOL, GLYCERYL STEARATE, PEG-100 STEARATE, TRIETHANOLAMINE, FRAGRANCE (PARFUM), TETRASODIUM EDTA, MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE, SODIUM CHLORIDE, ORYZA STAIVA (RICE) AMINO ACIDS, POLYPERFLUOROETHOXYMETHOXY DIFLUORETHYL PEG PHOSPHATE, STEAROYL COA-DESATURASE (SCD-1), PHOSPHOLIPIDS, HYDROLYZED OAT PROTEIN, PANTHENOL, PHOSPHORUS, MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE, CALCIUM PANTOTHENATE, MAGNESIUM SALICYLATE, ZINC GLUCONATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, METHYLPARABEN, BUTYLPARABEN, ETHYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN, ISOBUTYLPARABEN, LINALOOL, GERANIOL, ALPHA ISOMETHYL INONE, LIMONENE, COUMARIN, CITRONELLOL.

Decisions, decisions, decisions . . .

Holy Crap!! I was wondering what is in it. I have been watching this since it started. I really wanted to try the curly kit. I am still watching and really trying to resist it.... not sure if I can. I don't use too many cones so all those cones might freak my hair out. I just love him on What not to Wear.
2c/3a very thick!!

I was tempted to try his line, but not anymore. That's like nuclear curl cream

I love me some What Not To Wear and Nick Arrojo, but those ingredients are making me .

I don't know for sure because we're moving and I have no teevee right now, but if he's on QVC right now, he's up against WNTW, at least on my schedule.

Brio, my temptation has gone as well. I am now thinking of stopping by Sallys tomorrow instead.

His hair looks so fine textured - can he even use his own curl cream without really weighing his hair down?

He said if you had really curly hair, to use the co as a leave-in and skip the curl cream since you don't need curl enhancement. (I think I got this right.)

I saw it too and was wondering if the ingredients were nuclear and apparently so. I do wonder why they show the befores looking soooo horrid? It's like they are freaking mug shots!

Wow. Between the silicones, proteins, and five parabens I wouldn't touch that curl creme with a 10-foot pole.



And what baffles me is that the daily conditioner has better ingredients than the moisturizing conditioner (isopropyl alcohol's in it). It's just going to perpetuate the dryness cycle.

Wow. I don't think I've ever seen "-cone" / "-xane" so many times on one bottle. Ever.

The only cone I didn't see was amodimethicone...but since that's one of the easier ones to get out, I guess he decided to skip it.

CoN green, HE hello hydration, burt's bees super shiny condish, & KCCC.

mostly 3b, mod CG


Smiles are free, so give them away.

Celebrate we will, 'cause life is short but sweet, for certain.
I happened to see him on qvc also and had never heard of him. I was tempted but grateful that you all mentioned the cones, a no no for cgers. I don't need anything new. My hair is good withdeva products. Thanks.
Hair type, thin, 3b, past my shoulders always looking for length. Use jessicurl hair cleansing cream, devacurl one c, angel, set it free, Always see a deva trained stylist for cut and Aveda Institute for color.
