Diary and Calender
The App also comes with a built in diary and calender for personal entries that can be added daily if you choose to use it that often. Within that section of the app you also have the option of documenting your hair stats, which means that on any given day you can do a length check and add in inches your hair length.
You also have the options to take pictures of your progress all of which are stored within the App itself as well as in your regular photo album. This is perfect for someone who does length checks at specific times either monthly or every three or so months, the date is stored so you never forget and you have a great visual of your progress.
What I liked
Drilling the journal down to a date is a great thing, because the whole point of documentation is to track time and progress. Having hair stats is awesome! How many times have you scribbled your inches down on a piece of paper only to lose it the next time you try to track your progress and have nothing to compare it to? The app simplifies this for you by giving you the ability to just punch everything in, no worries and no dislikes either.
Loading the products that you are currently using or have used in the past is also easy because they have a button specifically geared towards that. You can load your products and rate them according to what works for you and what doesn’t using the five start system. There are only four categories however, shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer and Other.
What I liked
I can absolutely see the value of having a section for products especially if you are a recovering product junkie, you get a chance to visually see just how many products you have purchased for only one head. Without the accountability aspect it is also great to see what products worked for you and what didn’t so rating them is very valuable.
What I did not like
There is no section for stylers, deep conditioners or oils*. My guess is that those can be added to the category called ‘other’ but personally I would have preferred if they had there own category because we use these products just as often as we would use any conditioner or shampoo.
Another thing I wish the section had was a space to actually say something about the product instead of just reviewing it using the ‘star’ system. For example If you load a product and you give it a low rating you might want to take another look at your entry to see why it was bad for you at the time that you reviewed it just in case you forget or just in case things changed for you. We all know that depending on your hair length some products might work one year and be useless the next year once your hair gets longer.
