Devushka's Latest Product Reviews

Organix Moisturizing Grapefruit Mango Butter Shampoo

Sep 21, 2012 - IMO, this is a good ‘CG Method’ product that’s inexpensive and that you can pick up on the ground at your local supermarket or drugstore (as opposed to buying more expensive, mail order only, CG products). I have this in my rotation of cleansers and have good results with it whenever I use it  It gets rid of product build-up, but it doesn’t leave my hair feeling at all stripped. (Note: To best ensure good results, I only ever lather once with this or *any* sulfate-free cleanser.) Baking soda washes followed by ACV rinses are still my favorite routine when I want to clean away build-up, but if I’m traveling or otherwise strapped for time, this is a reliable, handy CG cleanser.

L`Oreal Paris EverCreme Sulfate-Free Moisture System Nourishing Shampoo

May 20, 2012 - I basically do the CG method and usually co-wash with conditioners that have cleansing agents in them. When I want to do a clarifying wash, however, I do a baking soda wash and apple cider vinegar rinse which works really well for my hair. I guess I can't help being a product junkie though, and I like to have a choice of products to rotate, so I went looking for a clarifying shampoo I could use periodically without stripping my hair. I also wanted something that was CG, *plus* I wanted something I could pick up locally and not go broke buying. This L'Oreal shampoo satisfied all of the requirements I had -- I can pick it up at my supermarket, it's not expensive, it's CG, and it clarifies my hair without making it feel stripped. One application of a quarter size amount was all I needed to wash my hair. (Of course, I always use a RO and a light LI, but I would use those anyway no matter what product I washed my hair with.) I also like that the EverCreme line does NOT have an overpowering, perfume-y smell like L'Oreal's EverSleek line of products does. <-- That would have been a deal-breaker for me. I'm perfectly happy to use this product again. (The only reason I give it 4 stars and not 5 is that I reserve 5 stars for products I consider HG.)

Kinky-Curly Knot Today Leave-in/Detangler

Apr 28, 2012 - Actually, I'd probably give KCKT 4 1/2 curls if they had that as an option; the only reason it doesn't get a full 5 curls is because I don't necessarily consider it a holy grail. After trying several leave-in conditioners, this was the first one that I liked because it absorbed into my hair well and didn't leave it feeling "product-y". I like that it's a light conditioner and that it smells good without overpowering. What's also nice is that it's a "quality" hair product that I can go out and get locally. It's nice having some products that I don't have to order online. I've since found a couple of more leave-ins that I like, but I definitely plan on keeping KCKT in my rotation of leave-ins.
