Posts Tagged ‘Shea Moisture Curl Smoothie’

So, before we get too far into this blog I must admit to you that I am a product junkie, (also known as a PJ) and have no plans of stopping UNTIL I finally find the right products for me and my crazy transitioning hair… but I must admit, this product may have brought my crazed moisturizer/ sealant search to an end.  The Organic Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie ((apparently the packaging has changed since this picture) is absolutely wonderful!  The shine and hold this product gave me today in this Atlanta heat and humidity it to die for, and my hair is STILL FRIZZ FREE!!!

This product provided me with lots of shine without sacrificing softness and hold. I will definitely be adding this to the rotation.

Price: $9.99 (which isn’t THAT BAD)
Store: Target
Motivation for Purchase: Super dry, Sahara summer curls that just WON’T behave

So last night I moistened my hair and sat down in front of my dorm mirror with my Jilbere shower comb in preparation for my go-to transition style these days: the Braid and Curl.  As I put the smoothie on my ends and massaged through, My hair instantly melted into beautiful, shiny, obedient coils (with yucky relaxed ends attached) that absolutely refused to tangle.  My Jilbere and Denman brush sank into them like butter and, before I knew it, the rollers (yellow flexi-rods) were in and it was off to bed with dreams of a wonderful hair day tomorrow.

Girl, I woke up and my dreams had come TRUE!!  In short, this ish is DA BOMB!  Not to mention my boyfriend (whom we shall refer to as “Big Blue”) came over and promptly put his hands my hair and proceeded to go on a fishing expedition in search of my scalp, saying the whole time, “ohhh, it’s so soft!”.  Yup, the hair definitely got me some play today 😉  My hair was also the shiniest it’s been since I stopped straightening (I’m in the middle of my “Curly 2010” Personal Challenge, with plans to either BC at the end of the year or in April of 2011, which will be about 2 years of transitioning).  In short, this product is a keeper and I don’t think we will be ending our friendship for any reason any time soon.  Readers, please feel free to flirt with my new staple!  I definitely recommend this for hair like mine: coarse, 4a with specks of 3c and 4b coils of desert wrath.  This smoothie told my hair who’s boss.  Who’s ya daddy (lol jk jk).

Much Love,
