Alikay Naturals Moisturizing Black Soap Shampoo
Nov 28, 2015 - I have used this shampoo on my hair twice -3b, low porosity/stringy curls, and on my daughter, -3c/4a medium porosity, Spongy curls and on my husband, -4b/4c, medium porosity. On my daughter and husband this shampoo worked like a charm - better even than shea moisture, their curls clumped so fast and, with the coconut conditioner and lemongrass leavein, both Alikay, i really was impressed. Specially since both do very Well with the devacurl - to me, the opposite high quality product in the spectrum between moisture/water product and moisture/oil product.
But on my hair, the moment i rinsed off there was instant buildup, as if no water could penetrate and, after using the rest of the line i ended up with extremely Well clumped curls - Some might call this shrinkage but, very bouncy- which were also oily. I skipped the conditioner and used decadence instead, moderated with the leave-in and still, extreme clumps and hair that looked moisturized and yet frizzy/dry at the same time. So i Will have to sulphate it out of my hair and stay away from it. That's me, excellent product but not for me.
