I have had a love-hate relationship with the Crème of Nature line, but I decided to give this Masque a try because it was in my CurlKit. This treatment claims that it would strengthen, restore, and hydrate distressed hair.
So I thought “what the heck!” Right…after washing my hair, I opened the pack up and right off, it had the strongest perfume smell that almost had me dazed and confused in the shower.
However, I let this sit for 5 minutes and literally tugged at my hair to rinse this product out. I was definitely high from that strong scent and the Masque absolutely did nothing for my hair.
Whoo-whee! With all the right ingredients on the product label to the sweet fragrance that could stay in my hair all day long, it was right up my alley. I purchased this leave-in from Target to keep my hair moisturized and refreshed during the day…but my hair was a dry mess by the beginning of the day.
I used everything from oils(affiliate link) and creams to keep that moisture sealed, but my hair felt a greasy mess with no moisture in sight. It was also tough to not get this product on anything but my hair because the consistency was way too watery.
I ended up transferring the product to a pump bottle and add another leave-in to it. It’s a shame this product didn’t work out because those ingredients were so awesome and that aroma was so sweet.
As I was becoming comfortable with my natural hair, I decided to try a wash n go. I picked up this product to define and promote my curls with a soft and smooth finish, as the product claims.
After my washing regimen, I added this product to soaking wet hair, shingled for defined curls, and allowed to air dry. The end result?
Dry, crispy, and sticky hair! I didn’t even use much of the product, but oh well. I threw this product away after a few tries, but this icky and sticky feeling was always evident.
Have you ever jumped on the bandwagon for a raving hair product or do you always do your research?
