DrainClogger's Latest Product Reviews

Burt`s Bees Hair Repair Shea and Grapefruit Deep Conditioner

Aug 30, 2011 - This is a great product for when you need moisture, oils and no extra protein. It gives a lot of slip, yet lets my hair clump well. I find it can be a bit heavy and weigh it down sometimes....but most of the time I need that extra weight to keep my hair from expanding all day long. I like the smell...faintly citrusy but not overwhelming.

MOP C-System-Hydrating-Shampoo

Sep 27, 2009 - very moisturizing shampoo that reminds me a lot of the old creme of nature, but with a great scent. It leaves me fairly frizzy though, probably due to the high humectant content. A

Brianne Prince Salon - Mason, Ohio, United States
Stylist:
Brianne

Mar 06, 2010 - I waited about 10 days to post this review, just to make sure I still liked my cut...and I do! She took time to talk to me about what I wanted, how I styled my hair, etc. I walked in with a very grown out butcher-near-mullet job from another salon, and although I am not 100% happy with my hair, it is looking a lot better than when I walked in there. I think that after another couple months of growth and good cuts, I will be very happy with my hair once again. The price was a tad high for the area but worth it for good hair! FYI: She offers Deva-cuts and regular haircuts, the Deva cut is 2x the price though. Since I am just wavy and have had great cuts long before the Deva method was around, I opted for the regular cut.

Tavernier's - Dayton, Ohio, United States
Stylist:
Aundrea and Rita

Nov 06, 2009 - I tried another stylist after not being very happy with my cut with Aundrea. I was even more disappointed after the 2nd try. Both stylists were pleasant people, and listened to what I wanted and then tried to deliver. Problem being, they really DON'T know how to cut curly hair on people who want to wear it naturally. Neither stylist actually looked at MY curl pattern before cutting. Both insisted on straightening my hair to style it, with tons and tons of heavy-silicone laden products. (3 shampoos after BOTH visits, just to get rid of enough buildup that I didn't keep frizzing from the cones.) Even though both stylists stated they had naturally curly hair, both had their hair ironed when I saw them. So maybe their solution to naturally curly hair is to coat it with as many silicone products as they can find, and then flatiron it? They probably frequent this site and know all the right buzzwords,Curly Girl technique, not overwashing, avoiding cones, etc. But they just don't really know HOW to look at a natural curl pattern and work with it. I now have poodle-flaps over my ears after my hair dries naturally, which Rita never saw coming because she insisted on straightening my hair! And despite the claims of the stylists, receptionists, and other reviewers, I did not actually see a head of natural, not curled in with a flatiron, curls on the head of ANY stylist at that salon during my 2 visits.

Oct 07, 2009 - It has been a while since my bad hair experience here, but you are warned; this woman loathes curly hair. She informed me that she HAD to straight iron my hair in order to get the cut right. I heard my hair sizzle like cheap bacon and it was damaged after the too-hot frying. The cut was not great. It basically only looked good while straight and since I don't own a flatiron and would never bother straightening it at home, that means bad hair until I grew it out.
