SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter infused with Frankincense & Myrrh

Aug 18, 2014 - some essential oils are a skin irritant, and Frankincense is a "Fragrant component used in skin-care products; it can be a skin irritant. There is no research showing frankincense has any benefit for skin (Sources: www.herbmed.com; and www.naturaldatabase.com)" and myrrh is a Fragrant gum resin that can be a skin irritant. There is little research showing it has any benefit for skin (Source: Healthnotes Review of Complementary and Integrative Medicine, www.healthwell.com/healthnotes/), although there is a small amount of research showing it may have antifungal and antibacterial properties (Source: Planta Medica, May 2000, pages 356–358).

Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching Gel

Jul 30, 2014 - They have reformulated this. This makes my barely there waves into literal spirals!!! It kills all of the frizz that I usually have and gives me an amazing shine. My hair usually looks like a bramble bush because its so dry and course. But this paired up with an extreme amount of elucence moisture balancing conditioner as a leave in and I have a stunning combo!!!! Wish I could show a before and after when styling with these two products. It looks like i curled my hairr but i can brag about how its natural :). Can'y rave enough about this product, and I can find it everywhere and its cheap!!!! Just use a generous amount of this and elucence (do not be shy at all) and wait till its still slightly damp to scrunch out the crunch. I found that when you sotc when its still a little damp it gives a lot more definition to curls. The curls lasts for days upon days without it getting too frizzy. I also smooth it into my flyaway areas and this keeps that in check. Please give this a second try if you have already tried this I beg you. Cannot rave enough about it.

Curly Hair Solutions Treatment Shampoo

Apr 28, 2014 - This shampoo made my hair a lot smoother. The back of my hair is extremely dry and it is extremely rough. This shampoo made if feel healthier and smoother which surprised me because no other product had done that due to my hair being low porosity, and i have tried so many products. Even all of the deep conditioners I have tried have done nothing even when i added heat!!! I dont have any buildup either because I dont use many styling products. So I almost gave up trying to hydrate my hair altogether after spending hundreds of dollars on expensive deep treatments and conditioners that has worked for everybody. Since I cant get moisture in my hair, I also cant dry out my hair either. This made a big difference in my hair and my curls are so bouncy! The protein in this does not straighten out my curls like the hydrolyzed protein in other conditioners/shampoos. I will rebuy. The only thing that could make this better is if they took out the sulfates and added something more gentle such as decyl glucoside.
