Product Review: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie

22 Nov


5 Things I Like:

  1. It is all natural. The ingredients include shea butter, coconut oil, aloe extract, silk protein, neem, avocado oil, carrot seed oil, honeysuckle extract, vitamin e, and an essential oil blend.
  2. It smells great!!!! You might be tempted to taste it, but don’t do it.
  3. It is inexpensive. The container is 12ozs. for $10.
  4. My hair was very soft after using it.
  5. I don’t have to purchase it online. It is sold at Target stores all around the city.

2 Things I Didn’t Like:

  1. I was a litte heavy with the application on my first use, and it made my hair look dull. It was better when I applied just a little.
  2. I thought it would be good for a wash and go, but it isn’t for me.

I will continue to use the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie as a moisturizer.  It works well for my braid-outs if I want a  bigger fluffier look, and my hair felt and smelled good. I also use it as a moisturizer when I am wearing a puff.

Product Review: Yes to Carrots Shampoo and Conditioner

11 Sep

I’ve been using Yes to Carrots shampoo and conditioner for a few weeks now because I wanted to be able to give an accurate assessment of how I feel about them. I purchased both from Target for $7.99 each for 16.9 oz bottles.

Yes to Carrots Nourishing Shampoo

The description on the fronts says:

Yes to organic carrots that give your locks some Beta-Carotene lovin’ and Yes to Dead Sea minerals that nourish and detoxify.

5 Things I like:

  1. You only need a small amount to get a good lather going.  My usual shampoo is less expensive, but I do see that this would last awhile.  I’ve used it several times, and the bottle is still mostly full.
  2. My hair felt clean without feeling quite as dry as it can be after some other shampoos.
  3. It is 99.4% natural
  4. It is easy to find because there are lots of Targets around.
  5. It works well in combination with the conditioner.

Yes to Carrots Pampering Conditioner

The description on the front says:

Yes to organic carrots for a hefty dose of Beta-Carotene and Yes to Dead Sea minerals for an all-you-can-absorb vitamin buffet.

5 Things I like:

  1. It worked well and left my hair feeling moisturized.
  2. It is 99.8% natural.
  3. It works well as a cowash conditioner.
  4. It is thick and creamy.
  5. It is sold at Targets everywhere so it’s easy to find.

This pair worked well for me.  I have read other reviews, and some users were not pleased with the smell.  They thought it smelled like baby powder.  The smell didn’t bother me.  It wasn’t wonderful, but it’s not bad either. Also, if you don’t like much suds, you may not like the shampoo.  As I mentioned further up, I use a small amount because it is very sudsy.
