Be careful using salt because salt can dry out your hair if used regularly.

I may have to try that occasionally. Salt dries out my hair. Is there another alternative?

BTW--I just stopped at Target and all the Yes To products are on sale. I got the Carrots. It smells like tea tree oil but pleasant.

Co-wash, leave in, and gel: Alba botanica coconut cond., ogx mousse, &/or super wet look gel.

I didn't really like YTB and returned it. I wonder if something was wrong with that particular bottle though b/c it did seem half empty when I got it. It kind of smelled like lotion (nice and "fresh" lotion, but still) and didn't seem to coat my hair or have any slip. It felt like it it kind of absorbed and disappeared.

Oh well that's just my hair rotfl. I haven't tried YTC for a while, but I think I like much it better.

I can't find the blue berries. Only cucumber and carrots
Are there are any other places that sell the yes to line other than Walgreens or Target so we can help Ashley out?

Hopefully this is available where I live. If it is, I'm gonna use it as my rinse and as a base for deep conditioning recipes. I'm excited cause Saturday is my "wash" day.

I bought this yesterday. I got it on sale at Shoppers Drugmart. I paid $7.99 Canadian for a bottle. I am meh about the product:

Scent:

When I first opened the the bottle my eyes began to water. The scent is overwhelming. I usually love scents, but this scent could peel paint. Oh my god, no. Also, it smelled kind of citrus-y which I do not like.

Curl Definition:

I did a co-wash with Tresseme Naturals (new formulation) and then put this in my hair. When I applied this to my hair the first thing I noticed is that it made my curls POP! I have type 4 hair and recently did my 10th million big chop since I've been natural for the last 13 years. Right now at my temples is 4b, the rest of my hair is O shaped 4a. The back, at the nap of my neck is straight. My hair usually forms looser curls at the nape so I guessed it wasn't long enough yet to form a curl. However with this conditioner in my hair I had the best definition ever. Even my nape formed some curls which are still there. Every conditioner to an extent does this, but I found this did it best for non deep conditioner.

Feel of Product:

In comparison to Tresseme Naturals it felt like it had the same thickness, but it felt a little denser the TN. I only found it slightly more moisturizing that TN which was a disappointment. It's not a deep conditioner so I was not expecting miracles, but it made no difference to my hair. The bottle claims that it "revitalize fullness and shine/ smooths and repairs / (provides) full, healthy shine" which honestly, I don't think it lived up to the claims.

As a base for a deep conditioner:

So I then used it as a base for a deep conditioner and added a bit of honey, a dime sized amount of my whipped shea, and a few dropped of olive oil. Even with adding all the other stuff, it didn't feel moisturizing. I had more success adding stuff to Tresseme Naturals.

Slip:

Additionally, I don't feel like it had a lot of slip. This is a non issue for me right now because I have a cropped cut, but those with longer hair who need to detangle (especially 3c/4a/4b/4c) may have issues. Personally, the jury is still out. I'm going to continue to use this as my rinse out post co-washes. Next weekend I'm going to do a baking soda and ACV clarify, so we'll how it reacts on clarified hair.

Overall:

I just don't like this product, but it doesn't take away anything from my hair so I'll finish the bottle before buying anything new. I'm not good with understanding ingredients. Maybe someone can decipher and explain why I got increased curl definition, but very little moisture?


Ingredients per the website:

Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Esters, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Stearyl Dihydroxypropyldimonium Oligosaccharides, Lupine Amino Acids, Fragrance (Parfum)**, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Extract, Trifolium Pratense (Clover) Flower Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil*, Ipomoea Batatas Root Lees Extract, Glycerin, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Trimethylolpropane Tricaprylate/Tricaprate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid. * Certified Organic Ingredient
**100% Natural Fragrance

Not sure why it works so well for curl definition and not moisture with your hair but I just have to say that was a remarkably thorough review you posted, Africana. Kudos.
