L`Oreal Paris EverCurl Hydracharge Conditioner
Feb 15, 2013 - Out of all the products that I have in this line, this conditioner was the first product I used. I don't know about anyone else but I HAVE to detangle my hair BEFORE stepping foot inside the shower to wash my hair! I've tried many ways but my hair has spoken and it said, "Chile!! Play with me if you want to! Go right ahead and try washing me before you knock out them kinks! Go head and see what happens!" So I did my normal sectioning of the hair, breaking each for section into thirds or fourths. *PLEASE NOTE-My hair had been in twists for about a week and then after that week, I untwisted each twist and rocked a twist out for an additional 4-5 days. ALSO NOTE that the product I used to twist my hair prior to using this product was Crisco (which is made up of mostly soybean and palm oil).* I mention this because I know that many of us, when we feel as though a product is "missing something" (enough slip to help with detangling, enough moisture etc), we tend add oil(s) to it to fill in the missing something. I said all that to say that I don't know if it was because of the Crisco or if this conditioner is that good, but I must say that detangling my hair with this product was great! Again, I don't know if the Crisco played a part but I was thoroughly surprised. I have NEVER used L'Oreal products before...EVER and for this to help with my detangling, ESPECIALLY since detangling, along with twisting, my hair are the longest parts of my process, I do like it! I like that it is creamy and has a medium consistency and the scent isn't too bad either. The only negative that I have spotted thus far ( I have only used it once because I wash my hair about once a week or once every two weeks) that when I tried detangling with this product in the shower after using the EverCurl Shampoo, I must say that it did not work for me. Now I keep my hair stretched when I wash my hair, only gently massaging my scalp with the pads of my finger tips to loosen build up etc, so when I tried detangling my hair (I normally have to detangling my hair two, maybe three times during my process because as little as I try to mess with them, my roots are the "root" of evil! lol You can sneeze and they'll tangle up so tightly it's not even funny) with this product in the shower, it did not work for me. I may try a different tool next time and see if that helps. All in all, I was surprised at how well this conditioner helped to detangle my hair. Now was it solely this conditioner that did all the muscle work or did the Crisco lend a helping hand? This I don't know. I'm going to start my washing process in a few minutes (I'm going to be washing the EverCurl Leave-In out) and I'm going to use this product to see if it works as good as it did before!
