Embelleze Novex Argan Oil Line

Over the last year or so I have been using several of the deep conditioners from the Novex hair care line. I gave a review of one of their deep conditioners on my blog before and I have a few more reviews that I plan on doing in the future. Since I gushed on how much I liked their products, the company actually sent me some more products to review! I was over the moon! They sent to me a majority of the products from their most popular Argan Oil line. I have to say that I was really...

Mirta de Perales Straightening Line with Keratin and Argan oil

When starting out my blog I contacted a few companies about their products. One of the first to respond was Mirta de Perales. They were so lovely to send me a complete box of one of their keratin hair line and even a letter wishing me success with my blog! Right off the bat their customer service was great and to top it off their products were actually great as well! Mirta de Perales products have been being sold for quite a long time and have a loyal fan base. Their newest line consists of 4 products: a shampoo,conditioner,...

Neutrlab Cocoa Curls and Pop n Curls

At the beginning of my transition back to natural, I was interested in trying out different products for the times when I do not wear my hair straightened. I was doing my routine window shopping at the beauty supply store and I saw these cute brightly colored products. I had never seen them before but before buying I decided to look on the internet about them. I found pretty much nothing and on top of that, the official website was defunct.(it sadly still is) So I decided to just try them out for myself! Neutrlab is a relatively new...

Cricket Silkomb … My new seamless comb!

In the past few years I didn’t want to fall into the hype of getting a seamless comb. It seemed so pointless! A comb is a comb is a comb! Seamless was just another hyper word in the hair care industry like “argan oil” or “nano technology”. However, since I got the silkomb, this little birdies tune has changed! It is a reasonable price for a seamless comb at about 8 dollars. Many seamless combs are made of a heavy carbon or silicone polymer. Bone combs are the most expensive and most likely are made up of unicorn horn...

My new ultrasonic infrared iron!

A few weeks ago I received my infrared ultrasonic iron in the mail. I ordered directly from the manufacturer and because of this I was able to buy one at a fraction of the regular price. Since it was a sample order (the manufacturer usually ships in bulk) it is plain and has the generic “ultra and infra” on the LCD screen. Otherwise, it still has all of the functions that the brand name ones do plus it has adjustable settings! If you don’t know about this iron, check out my previous post about Ultrasonic Infrared Irons. So far...

Pravana Perfection SmoothOut Treatment

Pravana has been one of the top contenders in the professional hair care market. I was really excited that they had come out with a hair smoothing system called Perfection Smooth out. It was formaldehyde free and claimed to “virtually alters the internal textural memory of the hair fiber to transform it to a smoother, frizz-free #8221; That “virtually alters” claim made me raise my eye brow a quite a bit so I did a little research on it before I decided to try it out. I could barely find reviews on it but the few I did said...

Nunaat Liquid Keratin Leave In Conditioner

Back in 2011 I stumbled across this product. NUNAAT was a new company to the US at the time and they had came out with a Brazilian keratin line. This was long before they came out with their current highly promoted “Ultra Keratin Touch Kit” at home keratin treatment. The product that had captured my attention the most was the liquid keratin spray as it claimed to “effectively penetrate hair structure, realigning it and reducing hair volume”. The new green keratin ingredient sounded great and the product was formaldehyde free. The cincher was that it was about 7 bucks...

Wash Day With Tresemme Naturals

Ever since Mahogany Curls on youtube did her rollerset tutorial I have been determined to figure out how to rollerset natural hair. I eventually learned how but I was still not able to get my natural hair as smooth as she did when on rollers. A few months into my transition I decided to try rollersetting “a la Mahogany Curls” again. I tried using the same exact products she used (Tresemme Naturals Conditioner) before and I wanted to see if the new formulation made a difference. I was actually quite surprised at the results! Previously I has not had...

Salerm Brushing Termo Activio

Salerm is pretty well known for their salon quality products. In fact, their B5 leave in conditioner is their most raved about hair product. I tried it and was left underwhelmed. It left my hair dull and coated and I just could not bring myself to like it. This did not deter me from trying out something else from their line. I’m glad I did. Their Brushing heat protector has been apart of my rotation for over a year because it gives great results every time. I came across this product when I had gotten my first relaxer. The...

Non-Keratin Smoothing Treatments

Keratin treatments have been gaining in popularity, but their varying risks and results have manufactures looking to have a similar smoothing effect with less risks. This has led to the rise of new age smoothing treatments that differ in ingredients while providing a sleek smooth look. These systems boast to have NO FORMALDEHYDE and NO KERATIN. This is what differentiates them from the regular keratin treatments and progressive straightening systems on the market today. This kind of smoothing treatment comes in many forms but I would like to focus on the ones that are applies with a quick and...
