Product Review Friday : Shea Moisture Hair Color System

2015/01/img_0316.jpg

So on Sunday, I went to Sally’s and purchased the new Shea Moisture hair color system in the bright auburn color. I was so excited to finally see it in stores, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. So here’s the review…

Pros- Where to begin, well first it’s organic full of natural ingredients, and it’s free of ammonia and sulfates. I loved that this product displayed women of color as the cover art of the packaging, as well. With the purchase of Shea Moisture products you are also helping fund better causes; and push the legacy of Sofi Tucker (founder) to help empower disadvantaged women around the world. The product contains organic shea butter, soy protein, flax seed oil, organic glycerin, and coconut oil. 

The organic shea butter helps moisturize and nourishes with fatty acids and vitamins. The soy protein helps rebuild and strengthen hair. Flax seed oil helps with shine. And the coconut oil help improve the feel, condition and overall health of hair. I also liked that this hair color had a nice pleasant smell unlike others that have a really strong odor. Inside it also came with the Raw Shea Moisture line (the shampoo, conditioner and reconstructive finishing elixir). After coloring my hair it was still soft, I didn’t experience any shedding and my curls were still perfectly intact. The color wasn’t too bright because I have dark brown hair, but I do like the shade that it gave me.

Cons- The only con was the price of course, it was $14.99. But with all the good things in this hair color, I do believe you get what you pay for.

Photos will be coming soon! If you’ve already tried this, let me know what you thought!

Product review Friday: OGX

2015/01/img_0244.jpg

This weekend I purchased the OGX Kukui oil conditioner and Frizz Defying Curl Cream. Normally this product is usually $7-$8 depending on your area. Most of the time you can find this in any local drug store in your area (I didn’t buy the shampoo because I don’t usually shampoo my hair that often so I didn’t want to waste my money). Here’s what I thought about it…

PROS– BOGO sale most of the time! Besides smelling extremely good, this conditioner gives my hair lots of slip making it easier for me to detangle in the shower. I like how thick the product is and how moisturizing it feels when it’s applied. After washing it out my hair felt super soft and had a nice sheen to it as well. I used the Frizz Defying Curl Cream, to style my hair (a little bit goes along way). This cream is BOMB y’all, when I took out my twists the next morning, they were bouncy, shiny and super defined. I also felt that this combination allowed me to have 3 and 4 day hair without any frizz or disturbance in my curls (unless it was done on purpose).

CONS– Honestly the only con that I could really say about this product would be the amount of product in the actual bottle. I felt that a lot of it was unused space and they could have filled that baby to the top so I could have more!

I love the OGX line and have tried other products but this Kukui oil made me fall in love with my hair all over again. I would definitely recommended this product and if you’ve tried it already tell me what you liked or didn’t like about it.
