III Sisters of Nature Cleansing Co-wash w/ Avocado extract

III Sisters of Nature!
I'm sure you all have heard of it or at least seen it around.
Since the beginning  of the year I have been contemplating purchasing items from this line ONLY because.... I didn't want to become a product junkie (L.o.L)
Long story short, A drawing was held on instagram for one of their new additions to the family and I was a winner.
!!Review Time!!
A daily, gentle conditioning cleanser infused with rich avocado extract to improve strength and flexibility. Every strand will begin to experience less breakage and more curl definition.
Contains: Deionized water, shea butter, avocado oil, soybean oil, vegetable glycerin, maltodextrin, pectin, corn glucose, soy bean oil, phenoxyethanol, vitamin E, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, fragrance
*My Experience*
I was so excited to try this product. I am a co-washer, but I had never used a product specifically made for co-washing.
I followed the directions exactly; starting off by rinsing my hair with warm water for 3+ minutes to lift impurities.
Then I began to add the product to my hair in 3 sections.
This stuff is really REALLY thick. I like thick conditioners but when it comes to co-wash conditioners, Id rather them be on the slightly thinner side somewhat like suave lotions.
The smell of this reminds me of candy. It smells very sweet and gets annoying after a few minutes.
Anyway, I massaged the product into my hair and scalp for almost 8 minutes exceeding the recommended 2-3.
Due to my hair being full of oil from oiling that entire week, when I rinsed.. my hair felt very coated and disgusting.  

The cleanser wasn't strong enough to remove the oils. Honestly I didn't even want to try it again BUT I did.
About 2 days later I washed my hair with a shampoo to remove any leftover gunk. The next week I gave it another go and OH EM GEE... Curls Curls CURLS out of this world.
My hair was soft and bouncy and I didn't need to Deep Condition.

I was extremely surprised by this because my hair has suffered from hard water damage for about 2 years now and I couldn't wear wash-and-go's do to that.
I have no idea what secret potions are in this stuff but I hope it never changes.

Darcy's Botanicals Review (Finally)

Hello All my beautiful followers!!
I am back and with a kick-Butt Contest. 

Darcy's Botanicals is an natural product line for natural haired ladies/gentlemen.
All the products are at least 99% Natural and Vegan.
 A few months ago, i had the 
honor of trying out some of the lines products and here is my review.

Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme

This combination of oils and butters is the perfect moisture sealant. A little goes a long way and you will defiantly get you moneys worth. The vanilla styling creme is not heavy on the hair but if you want to stretch your curls, give your hair a natural sheen or smooth your edges this is your product.
This Item comes in an 8oz jar and is prices at $12.00

NEW Curling Cream Gel

The curling cream gel is on of DB's newer products.
It is a moisturizing styling gel used for setting curls, 2-strand twist, curl defining and more natural hairstyles.
This gel is not like other gels,it has the consistency of  a thin conditioner like Vo5 or Suave. 
Having such a water type consistency, this gel doesn't harden or flake and still has the power to hold an up-do such as pony tails and buns.
This Item comes in an 8oz bottle and is priced at $12.00

Deep Conditioning Mask

Ever heard the saying "Everything but the kitchen sink"?
That's exactly how i feel about this Conditioning Mask.
It has tons, and i mean TONS of moisturizing ingredients for our curls and for our relaxed ladies. I compared this DC to Aubrey Organics honeysuckle rose DC and i have to say that they are neck and neck in this fight (lol).
This Item comes in an 8oz jar and is priced at $20.00

NEW Shea Butter Curl Moisturizing Cream


Peach Kernel (Natural Curls) Hydrating Milk

These two items are very similar, yet different.
Both have moisturizing properties and are my favorite products from the line.
The Shea Moisturizing Cream is used best as a leave in product and does an awesome job of  keeping moisture in wash and go styles.
As for the Peach Kernel Milk, its a great moisturizer to use under heavy gels and for the baggy method. After baggying with this product i sealed my ends with the vanilla styling cream and i didn't need to moisturize until that night. The peach Kernel milk makes shingling your hair faster than ever its also a product that can be used on the skin.
Its like getting 2 for the price of 1 :)
These products come in 8oz bottles and are priced at $12.oo

Pumpkin Seed Moisturizing Conditioner

This IS my favorite DBs product.
It smells like ginger bread or pumpkin spice and is sure to get your mouth salivating. For the perfect wash and go; Co-wash with this conditioner, spray on a bit of oil to seal in moisture and your done! No need to DC or add curl defining products this is the only product you will need. I promise you will love every single thing about this conditioner.
This product comes in and 8oz bottle and is priced at $12.00
