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
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!

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
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
