Default Yes to products

Hello I was wondering if anyone has tried any of the Yes to product line. I was wondering if they were curly girl approved?

I haven't used them personally, but several others do like them. Yes to Carrots and Yes to Cukes both seem more popular than the Yes to Tomates. I don't know about the new Yes To Carrots Leave In conditioner, but the other conditioners are all silicone free. You're good to go, whether you choose Yes to Carrots, Yes to Cucumbers, or Yes to Tomatoes. The shampoos do have Sodium Coco Sulfate, so aren't CG.

I have wanted to try the yes to cucumbers shampoo. I am pretty sure their condish is cg friendly and their shampoo does have a sulfate but I've heard it's gentler than others so it's like a lo poo

excellent. Im using DeVaCare now, its the first products Ive tried. Im trying to find something a little wallet friendly. I was hoping it was approved. The whole line just appeals to me. I picked up face wash and chap stick today. Temped to get the conditioners but wasnt sure.

Thanks guys! If i try it ill let everyone know!

I didn't know why it was leaving build-up, but then I accidentally squeezed out too much, and some conditioner got on the cap. When it was dry, it dried totally waxy! So now I have the build-up test. I see if a conditioner is waxy when dry. If it is, it will certainly build up on your hair.

Oh! And the shampoo was super drying.

My sister (who gives me all her products that don't work for her) has a blog, and she has reviews for the line here:

I started using the tomato products on my face and the carrot body wash. Its VERY WAXY! It feels like there is an oil slick on my skin and when I go to shave my legs its like the razor wont penetrate the wax! Im definitely going to think twice about trying the conditioners.
