Motions Straight Finish Sealer

Aug 09, 2013 - I like the easy to use bottle. However, the directions say to use 2-4 pumps throughout hair and that just didn't seem like enough. The Sealer was very light and didn't weigh my hair down. After flat-ironing, my hair starting puffing/frizzing within 30 minutes which was very disappointing. I have used oils and other products to flat-iron my hair with much better results while still maintaining my curls afterward. I believe this is a great protectant because my curls bounced right back after washing my hair, but my goal was to have a nice looking style and what I ended up with was a mass of frizzy hair (even inside my air-conditioned house). For it's protective value, I would definitely recommend this product line, but if you are looking for silky straight hair (which I have been able to achieve since going natural) you may need to use something in addition to the this product line. I think my hair in particular needs something a bit heavier. I will definitely keep trying with this product line because I think I can make it work with some tweaking and the prices are pretty good. :-)

Motions Straight Finish Leave-In Conditioner

Aug 09, 2013 - The Motions Straight Finish Leave-In conditioner has a great, light scent. The first time I used this product, I didn't do much detangling prior to cleansing. I thought this would be a very good detangler, but the first time, it was just okay. However, the second time I used the line, I detangled before cleansing and after applying the leave-in, detangling was a breeze. After blowdrying my hair, it was still pretty poofy, but I expected that to go away after flat-ironing. Once I did flat iron my hair, even after using the Serum, I could not get it as straight as I have been able to with other methods. However, my curls did come right back after washing again so I think this product line definitely helped protect my curls. I have had better conditioners, but for the price, I would definitely purchase this product again.

Motions Straight Finish Cleanser

Aug 09, 2013 - The smell of the Motions Straight Finish Cleanser is great! It's a light scent, almost flowery, not at all fruity. That was awesome because if a product has a bad fruity scent, I won't use it on my hair. :-) Anyway, the cleanser did not produce a lot of suds, but it made my hair/scalp feel really clean. Also, it definitely felt more moisturizing than lots of other shampoos/cleansers I have tried. Even if I didn't like the other products in this line, I will definitely use the cleanser. The main thing I disliked about the cleanser was that the bottle and label looked almost identical to the conditioner. I did accidentally squeeze out the wrong product once. I would definitely suggest to either put a large number "1" on the bottle, or to change the color of the writing, something to more clearly differentiate the cleanser from the conditioner. That confusion is the only reason I gave this product 4 curls instead of 5.
