BeautyBotanica's Latest Product Reviews

DevaCurl Set It Free

May 24, 2012 - In conjunction with the AnGel, this stuff has done wonders for me over the dry winter. It clumps my curls together giving it great definition. I apply it when my hair is sopping wet, then apply AnGel and then use a t-shirt to lightly scrunch out extra moisture. This product does not work well on dry hair AT ALL. I give it 4 curls because of its limited ability. It doesn't seem to do much for my in the humid spring/summer or in conjunction with other gels.

Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching Gel

May 24, 2012 - It's not the absolute worst styling product I've ever tried, but it still sucked. It totally stripped my hair (even after using my amazingly hydrating leave-ins) and made it feel like straw. It gave some definition but is not as strong-hold as I thought it would be. Plus, the smell makes me nauseous. Back in the day I would have loved the smell, but once you get used to using natural products the strong artificial fragrance of HE is so chemical and disgusting.

SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo

May 24, 2012 - I had really high expectations for this stuff, considering its overall 5 curl rating, but I was sadly disappointed. Perhaps because I've been co-washing and using DevaCurl No-Poo, this stuff seemed like going back to the horrible days of regular shampoo. Don't get me wrong, it's not like I poured the sodium laureth sulfate atop my head, but whatever this "Decyl Glucoside" ingredient is, it leaves a residue on my hair. I've noticed it from other shampoos I've tried containing this ingredient, it literally feels like I washed my hair with soap. Ick.
