Has anybody ever used the Sevi Blue Yarrow Hair Gel? How do you use it and is there a comparable product?

Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
I just had to chime in, because I asked my dad to pick up the pumpkin seed deep conditioner for me from the whole foods in baltimore. i read the reviews here, and i looked at the ingredients online, and i thought it might be good.

Word of warning... although it is not listed on the website, the bottle I received has patchouli oil in it. I used it this morning and my hair still smells like an unwashed hippie.

It is a very nice conditioner, but the fragrance IS quite potent. Good thing I only had a sample & hadn't yet sprung for thr full size bottle.

SN: I noticed that the Acure Organics Argan poo and condish has pumpkin seed oil but no patchouli. I've been resisting the impulse to buy it, but my resolve is slowly but surely weakening ...

Update! I wanted to save some people the trouble that I have experienced with my bottle. I don't know if I'm the only one, but when I clicked the ingredients link given by kathymack above, it took me to the Sevi website (what I now realize was an outdated version of their website copyright 2010). Their actual website was updated in 2012, so I'm not sure how, but I was getting the old one with an old ingredients list. Their current site does list patchouli in the Pumpkin Seed Conditioner.

I only found this out after emailing their customer service. The rep that I corresponded with was very agreeable and let me know that I should be able to return my bottle to my local whole foods without a receipt. So I will confirm that when I get a chance. I would also like to try the Seaberry Buckthorn conditioner, so maybe I will pick that up if I go to my parents at some point. The pumpkin seed did work very well. It was just the smell that didn't do it for me.

Thanks for the updates on these products. I am looking into quite a few of them.

When I purchased my Seabuckthorn Berry shampoo (which smells heavenly, I might add), she gave me a sample of the Pumpkin Seed deep conditioner. At first I wasn't sure if I liked it, and I used it as a leave in one day - big mistake. Now that I'm treating it like a deep conditioner, it's freaking love over here! I also love the way it smells. I love essential oils, mmmm. The sample size has lasted me quite a bit of uses, I'm surprised. When it runs out, I think I will be purchasing the bigger size.

I was torn between several products...

It was kinky curly vs Sevi, but I felt like Sevi had nicer ingredients.

What conditioners would you compare the sea buckthorn and the pumpkinseed to, as far as thickness, scent and overall performance? Do you treat the pumpkin co as a DT or a RO?
I'm wanting a good RO and wondered if the Pumpkin would be too much. I'd like to try both but kind of wanted to stick to one. I'm also wanting to get some samples of the hair serum, lotion and gel. Can someone who uses these share opinions please. Thanks

I use the Pumpkin Seed as a RO. I leave it on for about 3-5 minutes, works wonders. I can't DC, my hair will just fall limp... so any DC'ing I do is only 3-5 mins in the shower.

To be honest, nothing else really compares to this conditioner. I like this one a titch more than the Curl Junkie Argan & Olive Oil.

I was looking at the Seabuckthorn Berry, because I wanted to try it out - it just doesn't have any conditioning agents in it like fatty alcohols, etc.

Thank you. I'm also curious about the pumpkin shampoo. I will probably order some products in a couple weeks. I'm excited .

I totally agree, you can't compare the Sevi Pumpkin to anything else. My only issue is that she uses patchouli EO, which I don't like (as many have mentioned above.) However, it doesn't stop me from using it. I don't DC, either. My hair doesn't seem to need it.

The Sea Buckthorn Berry is nice, but it's not the Pumpkin Seed Conditioner.

The Pumpkin Seed Shampoo is also amazing. I find it a bit more moisturizing than the Seabuckthorn Berry, but I totally love both! The Seabuckthorn leaves your hair smelling sooooo nice

Let me know how the hair lotion is! It looks divine, I'm almost drooling.

I ordered sample sizes of both the Pumpkin Seed and the Seabuckhorn conditioners. I couldn't decide which one I wanted to try, so I just went with both! Mine should arrive on Friday!

I ordered mine on 4/26 and it's scheduled to arrive 5/9, so it's about a 2 week turnover time. If any of these become HG status, I will be ordering the largest size. Because while a 2 week turnover isn't bad for a handmade product, I will admit that I don't have the foresight to order 2 weeks before I run out.

I ordered samples of the Pumpkin Seed conditioner, shampoo, the hair lotion, and the gel yesterday - and I got a shipping notice today! Maybe samples are moving faster .
