January Hits and Misses
Hi ladies, Happy New Year!!! Here's to a year of happy,healthy, sexy hair!

Hit: V05 Shea Cashmere moisturizing condish-great detangling condish, great smell, my second fave behind the Calming Chamomile

Miss: (even though it happened last month I'm still mad about it) My CoCo Curls Curl Cream sprouting massive mold after only a few months. I saw the thread about it happening to others AFTER I purchased, *Le Sigh*

Happy New Year!

Neutral: Kyra's Ultimate Indulgence Sweet Mango Butter and Mango Moisturizer. The thing that bothers me about these two is that they have an equally strong scent that I really, really hate. Doesn't even smell like mangoes... more like a strong citrus-y perfume scent from Bath and Body Works. The scent hasn't worn off on my hair yet. :/ On the plus side, I love their consistency. The moisturizer doesn't leave my hair feeling greasy, and the butter leaves my hair feeling soft. Unfortunately, I won't be repurchasing these again.

Hit: Yes to Carrots Pampering Conditioner. Nice as a rinse out conditioner.

Miss: this darn chin hair O_o

Hit: Camille Rose Naturals Moisture Milk
- I had it in the fridge so I forgot all about it but I pulled it out a few weeks ago and I am impressed. It smells great and hair is soft and moisturized.

Hit: my twist out has been BANGIN'

No misses yet. I'm about to go back to my flat twisted updos, so I probably won't have any. It's winter, I want to work out and not care about doing my hair every night (I hate that), so I'm going back to my PSing for the rest of the winter.

Hit: Detangling on dry hair with the QBCTDG! I was so scared about doing this but I'm glad I took the challenge. My hair didnt rip out or anything like I thought it would. This stuff is definitely a life save on dry hair.

Miss: Shampooing the soft hair that the QBCTDG gave me after applying and detangling. :(

Miss: (second impression) Carol's Daughter the original Hairmilk Curl Definer (or whatevers), still greasy too the touch and my friend bought me the new milk transition kit. *wrings hands*

Neutral : the CD curlmilk curl pudding, don't know what to look for? only tried it on on a old piece of untwisted slightly dampened hair, and it didn't wow me. the lightly scented moldy baby powder scent didn't help matters either.

Hit: The shea moisture that was in my hair from last year giving the right side of my head bounce! :twisted:

Twisted Sista Curl Definer. Even though they took away the mineral oil and added argan oil, this is still a miss for me.

UFD Extra Butter- just meh. Nothing special. It's on the swap board if anyone wants it.

Elasta QP Olive Oil and Mango Curl Pudding-wanted to use this for a twistout but the smell was too much. On the swap board.

Total miss: trying to air dry a rod set when you are very impatient and your hair has extremely low porosity. Failure.

Continued hits: Keracare leave-in and twist and define cream.

mop leave-in conditioner
-I ordered this from Curlmart and the ingredients listed on the website were different from the product I received which upset me. I however, loved the product itself. I like it best applying it to freshly washed hair and sealing with a butter. My hair stays soft for 3 days. I am not impressed with the price for the small amount of product received (6.76 ml). I still will rebuy!

MopTop daily conditioner
-My new favourite rinse out conditioner (I haven't tried it as a leave in yet but I never rinse all of it out!) It smells great, it helps me detangle the knots in my hair and it gives my fine fragile hair a boost of protein.


My head ties keep falling off when I'm sleeping lately, I need to learn how to sleep like a lady!

Ouidad OMEGA-3 Replenishing Hair Treatment. I followed the directions which is to leave in for 3 minutes and then gently rinse and wash hair. When I was rinsing it out, my hair felt like I had just clarified. It. I then shampooed, conditioned and twisted my hair with my usual styling products. The next day my hair was dry and rough. I had to clarify and deep condition it to get the moisture back.

Here's the thing, this product has a long ingredient, C10-40 Isoalkylamidopropylethyldimonium Ethosulfate, which is the same ingredient used in hair dyes. I'm no chemist but I think what this product does is open the cuticle to let moisture in, Well that's not ok if you have highly porous hair. My hair needs products that close and smooth the cuticle.

Anyway, it was a disastrous fail and it goes back to Sephora for a refund. Oh BTW it has absolutely no slip and no detangling properties.

Neutral/Miss: This is a bit of a hair rant. O.K was in the mood for a bit of a straight hair look to switch things up. I went to this place that had my hair laid a year ago and thought why not go back? I got a rinky dinky wash, blowout, a trim (which was really a haircut because a trim, my hair did NOT need), and a press and bump with some cheap iron. My hair was poofy when complete, I requested a wrap, and got the laziest doobie, I have ever seen in my life! As I horrifyingly accepted my fate in life, the time came to pay. Wait for it!....Wait for it.....Wait for it...the price came up to $100.00!:sign6: (scratching my head)
*takes a deep breath here* Seriously what was the point of that!? I came home with poofy hair that I had to "fix" myself and needless to say that person did not get no damn 100 dahlahs from moi. I cannot and I will not. /rant

Mixed Chicks Leave-in Conditioner
-It leaves my hair coated and after a few days it flakes and my hair is dry. I tried and tried and finally I just gave it to my mother!

hippychic 01-07-2013 12:06 PM

mega hit: trader joe's moisture condish to remove senagalese twists and detangle!!!!!! detangling was a breeze! (slight miss this stiff stinks!). i used to like it :(

hit: infusing herbs in olive oil (why pay so much when i have a boatload of herbs and oils). my hair loves olive oil so it's a win/win:toothy10:. bought some canning jars and infused horsetail, rosemary, mustard seeds, cayenne pepper, oat straw (can't remember what else) lol

Jo Somebody 01-09-2013 09:37 PM

Hit: Washing my hair. Yep. That's it!
How did I ever go all those relaxed years washing my hair only when I got touch ups (every ~8 weeks?). You'd think I'd been tasked to bring about world peace the way I've been scratching my head. Geez! Laziness/sloth is definitely a deadly sin.

Feeling your pain my sister! :sad11:

Curls Coconut conditioner or whatever it is called. No slip at all. Had to use half the bottle to detangle my hair. I'll use the rest of it in my henna melt mix.

Soultanicals taking forever to mail my Knot Sauce. I placed the order on the 1/2. I really can't do this long wait with hair companies anymore. Trying my patience....

Mega Miss again:
Komaza Aloe my hair spray. I tried to use this again and I just can't stand the scent. Also it does not detangle my hair. I poured the sample down the drain.
