Review:  Oyin Handmade Juices & Berries

I’ve always said that hair spritzes do absolutely nothing for my hair.  They always seemed too light to have any effect on my thick mane.  So when I received my Oyin Juices & Berries in my CurlKit a while back, I immediately sent the ‘lowly’ spritz to spend eternity in product purgatory (the bottom drawer to the right of my vanity).  So, a couple weeks ago, while searching for some stray bobby pins in my drawer of unfit products, I came across my forgotten bottle of J&B.  Our eyes met.  It looked up at me and said “Leah!  Try me!  I promise I don’t suck!”   Read the rest of this entry

Product Review:  As I Am – Coconut Cowash Cleansing Conditioner

As mentioned in my January 2013 CurlKit Unboxing post, one of the items I received was a whopping 16oz jar of As I Am – Coconut Cowash Cleansing Conditioner.  Many of you guys responded to my video saying how much you liked this product.  I already have a tub of their gel and have fallen in love with that, so you KNOW I couldn’t wait to try the Coconut Cowash Cleansing Conditioner.

Full disclosure: I must admit that I’m a bad natural for a number of reasons.  Reason number #284 is that I very rarely cowash.  I’m hopelessly addicted to the suds.  I’ve always felt that cowashing just added to the gunky product build-up on my hair instead of eliminating it.  I couldn’t wrap my mind around using a conditioner to wash my hair!  It just didn’t seem possible.  However, it’s a new year, and I vowed to clean up my act when it comes to my hair.  One of the things that’s been on my to-do list is to give cowashing another shot.  So receiving this product was right on time.  Surely a product that has “cowash” in the name must be the best place to start.

So anyways… Here are the specs: Read the rest of this entry

Product Review:  Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls

So, as most of you know, I love me some Miss Jessie’s.  Pricey as it may be, I get some of my best results with their styling products.  I love my Curly Meringue and Quick Curls has grown on me in recent months.  In my opinion, their products are usually well-scented (which is super important to me), and give me the results I want.  I usually don’t care too much for their shampoos and conditioners, though, as I feel like if I’m going to put something THAT expensive in my hair, I don’t want to wash it out immediately.

Regardless of the price, Miss Jessie’s has usually been good to me, but sometimes it can make my hair a little stiff if I don’t apply it with a light hand.  So you already know, this summer with Miss Jessie’s announced they were releasing a product called “Pillow Soft Curls”, I was siced.  I envisioned big, fluffy, moisturized curls just blowing in the breeze.

I took advantage of their end-of-year BOGO event to re-up on my Curly Meringue, but I also bought a bottle of Pillow Soft Curls to try.  At first I applied it on clean hair, with just a touch of Coconut Oil underneath to keep it light.  My initial impressions were: Read the rest of this entry
