Kinky-Curly Stellar Strands

Aug 24, 2014 - I have 3b curls that are past shoulder length when wet. My hair is graying naturally (no dye for years) and tends to be dry. I am very impressed with this deep treatment. It spread easily on my wet hair, and I used less product than I normally do with DT products and still got generous coverage and saturation of my hair. I kept the product on for 30 minutes with a plastic cap over it, but no heat. I usually don't use heat when I DT. After rinsing out, I applied a leave-in conditioner as usual for me to help with detangling. Let my hair air dry as usual. It felt fuller, moisturized, and smoother all day long. The ends felt healthy and moisturized down to the tips. I felt like my hair had slightly more shine to it. I am very happy with Stellar Strands and will keep it in my DT rotation. It's one of 3 that I will continue to use (Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! and CJ Deep Fix are my others).

Bigen Protect & Repair Deep Conditioner

Sep 08, 2013 - I liked this DT better than I thought I would. The 1.75 oz packet is a generous amount. I had more than enough to cover my thirsty 3b hair that hangs to APL when wet. I would estimate that I had about 1/3 of the packet left over after covering my hair thoroughly with the product. For this reason, it would be great if this came in a jar or tube so that we can just use the amount we need. I DT weekly, rotating different products. I applied gel to style my hair and it dried with soft, shiny, non-frizzy curls. Maybe it was because of the silicones in this product; I typically don't silicones. I love the scent of this product, but those who are sensitive to fragrances may not like it -- the results are definitely worth trying this deep conditioner. I would consider purchasing this product, and I really hope they offer it in a jar or tube at some point.

Bigen Protect & Repair Shampoo

Sep 08, 2013 - I don't use shampoo usually. Lately, I have been wanting to find one that I can use periodically to help remove product build-up. Not surprisingly, the instructions for the Deep Conditioner in the line recommends using this shampoo first before applying the DC. (My review for the DC will be posted later). The shampoo has a nice fresh scent. It's a bit strong, but I liked it. It lathers well with just a small amount of product used (about the size of a quarter for my APL-when-wet 3b hair). My hair felt clean but not stripped after I rinsed it. For regular use, I don't find this shampoo to be moisturizing or detangling enough to be used without a rinse-out conditioner after it. Since I was doing the DC next, I wasn't concerned about combing my hair after using the shampoo. I am glad that I tried this product and I will gladly use it in the future when I need to shampoo.
