Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle
The sad thing about the 3 Minute Miracle is that it used to be my favorite product ever! The price is decent, it smelled great, made my hair feel amazing, and didn’t need to be left on for an hour.
I used and used this product as much as I could, but unfortunately my hair adapted to it to where it was no longer effective.
After a while, my hair would feel really soft and tangle free while I was in the shower, but as soon as I stepped out, my hair would begin to dry immediately and it just wouldn’t feel nice. After I finished my first bottle of this product, I had to let it go and move on to something else.
Cantu Flat Iron* Spray
Before I realized that I could save myself time and energy by simply using oil to straighten my hair (or better yet, just not straighten at all), I had been in the market for a good heat protectant* spray. I purchased this from a local beauty supply store, and I was so disappointed.
The product is thick and sticky. Even when I applied it sparingly, it left each section stuck together and weighed down. I didn’t get the soft, blown out look that I was going for; instead my hair just looked like it needed to be washed. After trying it on two sections of hair, I immediately put it down and never used it again.
Salt / Beach Wave Spray
There are some people that use salt based sprays to help define their curls and give them extra pop – I am not one of them. I remember trying to use one of these sprays as a curl refreshed and overnight styler, but it was a BIG mistake. These products just leave my head itchy, and dry my curls out. My hair had no shine after using it. They also need to be washed out frequently just to prevent product build up.
Instead, I stick to simple gels and normal leave in sprays to define and moisturize my hair. Less hassle, more moisture, and definitely a lot more shine. I definitely wouldn’t recommend this for anyone with type 4 hair, but ladies with looser curl patterns may have better results from using products like these.
And these are the products that i mostly avoid! After two years of trying practically everything on the shelves, I have a better idea of what my hair likes and doesn’t like. What about you? Comment below and tell us your least favorite products!
