Performance and Results

After D’s hair was washed, conditioned and detangled I evenly applied the product in sections, from root to tip and then let her hair air dry. You can see what her hair looks likes with no product to get a comparison of how this product worked on her.

My thoughts:

To be honest, at first glance I wasn’t too impressed with the ingredients or the price tag on this product, but I did love the results and performance of the product. As you can see the wash and go looked good through a full second day, as I’m sure you know not all products can do that! Each night I pineappled her hair and covered it with her satin bonnet. Her hair was soft, very soft, there was no stiffness to her curls, I love that, it is a must for us when it comes to hair care products, after all who likes crunchy hair? I love that it didn’t weigh her hair down and it gave some great definition and hold to her natural curls. It didn’t dry her hair out either, it truly is the moisture lock define and shine product it claims to be.
