loverespect's Latest Product Reviews

Giovanni Straight Fast

Dec 27, 2010 - This product is intended for straightening, and when used correctly, it yields great results. The directions are detailed. (In short: Put it on freshly washed hair, and blow dry. Then add a little more when done.) When I followed them. My hair came out straight and lasted for 3 or 4 days, but then it rained so there was no amount of anti-humidity products that would have kept my hair straight through that.

Giovanni Smooth as Silk Shampoo

Dec 27, 2010 - Used on bare hair it's very stripping. I've learned the best way to avoid that is to pre-poo with a mixture of oils first. The name says "deep moisture" though, and I just didn't get that from this product on it's own. For that reason, I give it a two. The natural ingredients and affordable price are the only reason it's not at a one.

Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deeper Moisture Conditioner

Dec 27, 2010 - Best conditioner I've used in my natural hair to date. It makes detangling a breeze. Hair feels smooth as silk for real. Very moisturizing. I had a bit of a disaster with some shampoo that left my hair extremely dry, matted, and stripped. I put this on for a few minutes and my hair felt moisturized and was easily detangled.

Vonetta Dumas

Dec 27, 2010 - My hair was extremely damaged, dry, and over-processed, and one day I decided I had to do something about it before it got worse. I searched online for a stylist in the area that would be able to help with my hair issues. Each review I found about Vonetta was positive. I even saw some of her before and after pictures of clients on Facebook. I contacted her and made an appointment. I have been going to her faithfully for almost two years now. She convinced me to go natural last year, and it's not a decision I regret. My hair is healthier and growing. I don't see breakage etc. She is also the only stylist that I've ever let color my hair, and I have never been disappointed. She is blatantly honest; there were times when I wanted a lighter color and she let me know my hair was not in good enough shape for it. Her haircuts/trims are always amazing. I love the layering. I don't know what kind of magic touch she has but EVERY time she straightens my hair, it looks like a fresh relaxer (but my hair does revert). I don't think any visit to a hair stylist is complete without some words of advice, and I must say, Vonetta has definitely provided some much needed words, and she probably didn't know how much I needed it at the time. She is an amazingly genuine and kind person. I don't know what I'll do when I move. I will truly miss her.
