So 2 things about me:
- I have very curly hair. I love love love it, and usually don’t style it much more than clip up, or leave down. The curl is most of the style. I don’t straighten it (in my whole life I’ve only done it twice… if that says anything) and I have learned to work with it (imagine my childhood lol).
- I’m not much of a different products person. Shampoo and conditioner for my hair require severe loyalty (hello Dove and Pantene). I buy a million and one different products that I don’t need, and then in accordance, don’t use. Other hair products like gel, hair spray, and mousse (use one of the three on a regular basis to tame the frizz-monster) don’t require loyalty, as most of them suit me just fine – so that is usually left up to price.
With that in mind. I have ventured out of my comfort zone this week and decided to try two products.
First – hello discount.
While using my $4 off $20 at CVS, I found a new shampoo from Organix with a free trial coupon attached to it (they know me so well). Of all the flavors/scents, I really liked the Pomegranate Green Tea Shampoo. The free trial reimburses you for up to $6.99 so long as you send in all the stuff within 30 days of purchase. The shampoo in my favorite flavor had to cost more of course. So it was $7.39. After mail in rebate it is $.40. I think I can handle that.
Here’s what they claim on their site:
Why You Want It…An alluring, revitalizing, antioxidant rich blend of Pomegranate extracts and Green Tea for a provocatively irresistible experience which will have your hair craving for more.
What’s In It For You…Luscious antioxidant rich Pomegranate extracts and Green Tea target dry and brittle hair while awakening follicles to create a luxurious and revitalizing experience, adding a brilliant and luminescent shine.
What’s it in…Organix® bottles are eco-friendly, manufactured from materials containing recycled post-consumer resin. All labels are printed utilizing environmental inks and compostable label film made from annually renewable resource corn, not from petrochemicals.
Revitalizing Pomegranate Green Tea Shampoo & Conditioner
Revitalize your senses with sensual and exotic antioxidant rich organic pomegranate extracts and green tea which target dry and brittle hair, while awakening follicles to create a clean and rejuvenating experience, adding a brilliant and luminescent shine. It’s an alluring, revitalizing, antioxidant rich blend of Pomegranate extracts and Green Tea for a provocatively irresistible experience, which will have your hair craving for more.
And second! After watching me huff and puff through working the knots and what have yous out of my hair this weekend, my honey’s sister asked if I used a detangler. I said I had tried a few only to have seen it fail on my hair and had to donate them to better homes. With that, I stumbled upon a company named Kinky-Curly in Ricky’s this week and saw a detangler that served double duty as a leave-in conditioner also. I figured if it doesn’t detangle, at least it will still have a purpose!
Here’s their claim from their site:
KNOT TODAY TM is a creamy herbal conditioner and detangler designed to smooth the cuticle and remove knots, snarls and tangles from thick curly textured hair.
After washing hair, apply KNOT TODAY TM generously and work through troubled areas with a wide tooth comb.
Can be used as a regular rinse out conditioner for wavy hair or as a leave-in for thicker curlier hair types. An excellent product to use after removing braids and extensions.
**TIP- When using this product as a leave-in, apply in the shower and rinse with a little water to evenly distribute the conditioner.
I will try these out in the upcoming week
and will let you know what happens.
