Okay, I’ll have to admit that when I first used this product I did not know what I was doing. So I just decided I didn’t like it and placed it in the back of my cabinet. When I realized I hadn’t reviewed all of my black Friday products I decided to give it a second chance. Here are the ingredients:
Water, Aloe vera juice infused with Rosemary, hibiscus, and horsetail, vegetable glycerin, silk amino acids, sorbitol, Sweet Almond oil, Shea Butter, Macadamia Butter, Cupuacu Butter, polysorbate 60, sodium carbomer, xanthan gum, phenoxyethanol, caprlyl glycol, fragrance.
The scent is very similar to the super buttercreme but with a hint of coconut. It’s very light and not overwhelming. The consistency of it is thick and creamy. It isn’t sticky or tacky feeling. I used this as my styler for a WnG. I used it first with a leave-in conditioner and then without a leave-in. The results were pretty much the same. I used Oyin Hair Dew as my leave-in and there was no reaction between the 2. I applied it to freshly washed, detangled, and sectioned hair. The product went on nicely and I decided to smooth/slide the product down my hair because it didn’t have a lot of slip for me to rake it through with my fingers. I let it air dry and my hair came out soft and fluffy. It has a really nice hold and my hair wasn’t crunchy at all. Also, my curls were defined which I was concerned it wouldn’t be to my liking since I was used to using gel. I actually like this creme because my hair doesn’t shrink as much and gives my twa a full curly fro. SN: I still get a significant amount of shrinkage.
The same results occurred when I used it without a leave-in. The only difference is my 3rd day hair was slightly more defined without a leave-in than it was when i used a leave-in. All in all I likey this product and will purchase again. I have yet to use it for a twist out but I’ll update this when I do. Until then here are some pics (see I’m doing better 😉 ):
I really like this and I’m going to make sure I keep this in my arsenal. Have any of you tried this product? If so, how did you like it?
Distilled (Aqua) Water, Organic Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera), Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Vitamin E, Panthenol, Achillea Millefolium (Yarrow), Salvia Officinalis (Sage), Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail), Utica Dioica (Nettle) Leaf, and Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavendar) Extracts Phenoxyethenol, Caprylyl Glycol ( a paraben free preservative), and Lemon Grass.
The consistency of this gel is thin, runny, and creamy. The scent is so delicious! It smells like watermelon airhead’s candy. YUMMY! I almost can taste it when I sniff it lol. I used it without a leave in the first time I tried it and it was okay. My hair was very soft and my curls were pretty. However, I like it better with a leave in conditioner under it because it is more moisturizing. It hasn’t clashed with any of my leave ins as of yet so that’s cool. I use it mostly with the Pumpkin Seed Curl Moisturizing Conditioner ( I love that stuff, review coming soon). I also like it as a finisher, it helps softens the crunch of some hard gels. Now this gel as a styler alone provided very soft curls but they were not free of frizzies. When I want my hair to be frizz-free I use it with a little gel to give me more hold. I likey this product but not enough to be a HG product. However, it does fall in my would buy again on sale list because the smell is uber awesome!
Next Pumpkin Seed Curl Moisturizing Conditioner.
Lots of Love,
This product was the first moisturizer that I ever purchased and I had no idea what to do with it because I was only 2 months natural. Now there is only about 1/4 of it left so it is safe to say that I figured it out. Here are the ingredients…
Water, botanical infusion of aloe vera, nettle and horsetail extracts, vegetable glycerin, *fractionated coconut oil, Shea butter, sweet almond oil, *vegetable emulsifier, cupuacu butter, meadowfoam seed oil, tucuma butter, xanthan gum, vitamin E, silver citrate, citric acid, potassium sorbate, fragrance.
The smell of buttercream frosting fills my nose whenever I use this product. Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE buttercream frosting over any other frosting in the world. Each time I use this I want to buy me a white cake with white buttercream frosting. The consistency of it is thick and creamy. It is very moisturizing and a little goes a very long way. I used it on my daughter’s hair (during her brief stint of being natural), to not only moisturize her twists, but I have also twisted her hair as well as mines with it. My twist outs were very defined and stayed moisturized for a few days at a time. The only complaints I have with this product is that glycerin is high on the list and in the wrong dew points my hair blew the hell up; also it doesn’t play well with all of my products. I tried using this as a leave-in with my WnG but it was too heavy in my opinion. Also, when I used it as a leave-in I attempted to detangle my hair with it, yeah big mistake (don’t go through what I been through, in my Sophia voice). It doesn’t have any slip at all in my opinion. I can definitely see myself purchasing this again.

The next series of posts will be dedicated to the review of all the products I bought during the black Friday sale last year. I figured I better get them all reviewed before it comes back around again lol. Hair Whip Leave-in Conditioning Styling Creme ingredients…
Aqua, Aloe Vera extract, propanediol, cetearyl alcohol, behentrimonium methosulfate, apricot Kernel oil, Avocado oil, coconut oil, cupuacu Butter, castor oil, marshmallow extract, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, sorbic acid, fragrance.
Although this product is a leave in styling creme I preferred it best as a moisturizer. When I used it as a leave-in for my Wng’s or twist outs my hair was dry by the end of the day and needed to be re-moisturized by the time I made it home. I like for my leave in’s to last me a couple of days without having to add more product to it. When I tried it as a styler alone, I found it to be too light and didn’t offer much hold. I finished the product out as a nightly moisturizer and I liked it very much as that. I’d retwist my twists to moisturize them after they would reach day 3 or so and I would moisturize my Wng with it at night. This wouldn’t fall on my HG list but I’d definitely repurchase again if on sale.
The consistency of it was like a light lotion it wasn’t thick at all. To be honest it didn’t really have a smell to me so I can’t speak on it. However, my friend said it smelled like vanilla to her. All in all, I think this product is okay and will definitely purchase again during the next big sale.
Next up is her Super Buttercreme and Dream Curling Creme
This review is a long time coming because I have been using this condish for a very long time. I love, love this condish with all my heart! It is my holy grail, must have, will not eat for 3 days in order to buy because I can not run out product. Here are the ingredients…
Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, PEG -7 Olivate, Guar Hydroxypropytrimonium Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA, Hydrolyzed Oat Flour, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Matricaria Recuitita (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Yucca Leaf Extract, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Leaf Extract, Melissa Officinalis (Melissa) Leaf Extract, Polysorbate 60, Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail) Leaf Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Fragrance.
This cleansing conditioner is a staple to my WnG regimen. When I was shampooing my hair everyday my hair was always iffy. Sometimes it was tamed and other times it was dry and itchy. My curls popped one day and they frizzed the next. It was so frustrating trying to keep my hair moisturized and the shampoo I used wasn’t very drying. I heard about the curl junkie line on youtube and saw this when I went to their website. I was always skeptical about using conditioner to clean my hair because I just couldn’t see how it would cleanse it. When I saw that it was a “cleansing” conditioner I felt more comfortable with trying it than using something like Tresseme Naturals.
The consistency is creamy and thick. It coats my hair really well and has lots of slip. I can finger detangle while in the shower with this product. It has a sort of minty smell and feels like it “lathers” a bit on my hair. I like the feel of lathering, although it doesn’t actually lather on your hair. When I rinse out the product my hair feels very soft and cleansed. It does not strip my hair nor does it feel as if there is buildup on my strands. The product comes in a 12oz bottle and a 32oz bottle with a pump. I love the pump it is so convenient in the shower. Daily Fix Conditioner has definitely stepped my natural hair game up and I can not live with out it.
I have been waiting to get my hands on this deep conditioner! I have read numerous reviews and watched countless YouTube reviews on how moisturizing this mask was unto each individuals’ hair. Needless to say the product junkie in me began twitching to get her next fix. The day it arrived in the mail I immediately used it. Here are the ingredients…
Purified Water, Aloe Butter, Jojoba Oil, Agave, Vegetable Wax, Vegetable Glycerin, Aloe Vera Juice, Panthenol, Arnica, Calendula, Echinacea, Nettle & Horsetail Extracts, Carrot Seed Oil, Rosemary Essential Oil, Arnica, Shikakai & Amla Extracts, Vitamin E & Natural Enzymes.
The consistency is kind of thin. I expected it to be thicker and creamier but it was light and somewhat watery. It didn’t really have much of a scent in my opinion. I first used it and sat under my steamer for 20 mins. It didn’t feel soft before I rinsed and it didn’t feel soft after I rinsed… hmm. The next time I used it under a hooded dryer with a plastic cap for 15 mins. This time it felt softer and more moisturized but as soon as I rinsed, the softness left. Again… hmm. Lastly, was my tried and true method of the hooded dryer for ten minutes then overnight DC. Again, it felt soft until I rinsed. I added oils to it, the same results. My hair does not like this mask. Strangely, my hair was moisturized but not soft. Weird, I know. Anywho, I didn’t like it as a rinse out. It had absolutely no slip and I did not try it as a leave since it wasn’t recommended on the website. All my life I wanted to like this product! Alas, it just wasn’t meant to be. I won’t be purchasing this again.
Ta-Ta for now,
Every since I began my natural journey I have been looking for a deep conditioner that would moisturize my hair and cause me to yell, “my hair is so soft.” Nothing I’ve tried thus far has invoked this reaction until I tried Curl Junkie’s Hibiscus and Banana Deep Fix Moisturizing Conditioner. Here are the ingredients…
Distilled Water (infused with Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis Linn (Hibiscus) Petals), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Honey, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Panthenol, Musa Sapientum (Banana) Fruit Extract, Hydrolyzed Oat Flour, Plantago Species (Plantain) Leaf Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Astrocaryum Murumuru Butter, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia (Macadamia Nut) Seed Oil, Theobroma Grandiflorum (Cupuacu) Seed Butter, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Wax, Disodium Cocoamphodipropionate, PEG -7 Olivate, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, (Vegetable) Glycerin, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Tetrasodium EDTA , Fragrance.
First of all, I LOVE the smell! It smells like bananas and deliciousness, Yummy! It has a thick creamy consistency but slightly textured. My hair feels instantly soft when I apply it and it moisturizes my hair very well. I’ve used it under my steamer, my hooded dryer with a baggie, and as an overnight DC. Each time I get excellent results. My favorite way to DC is to sit under my hooded dryer with a plastic bag for ten minutes and then leaving it on overnight. When I rinse my hair the next day it is very soft and moisturized. It also works well as a leave in conditioner. It doesn’t weigh my hair down too much and I haven’t had any issues with it reacting with any of my gels. Lastly, I’ve used it as a rinse out. Although my hair felt very soft, it didn’t have much slip to me so I couldn’t detangle with it using it in this manner.
I’ve been slowly working on my holy grail list and I am pretty confident this will be in attendance!
Until next time my lovelies,
