So here's an update... One month was not enough! I want to do this challenge justice and also use a lot of the product and in a month, I didn't do that properly. So I've updated the challenge to a new product line every TWO months. So hello September, and hello I'm still loving my Camille Rose Naturals! This month I'll be adding reviews of some of other products I'v been using in the line and also a look at different hair styles I'll try! Like this one! (Lots of curl maker and creme gel used here... And my Kinky Curly Yaki clip ins.
I'm still in the first month of my healthy hair challenge and I'm loving the Camille Rose Naturals hair line. (For infor about the challenge click here. For info about the first line click here). So I can tell you all day how I love the products and blah blah but how about you see what each does to my curls? So I washed my hair and separated pieces to put each product on alone and took pictures! Check it out:
Fresh Curl: Revitalizing Hair Smoother
Focus on that first piece of hair. It frizzy after the wash, looked nice after I placed the product on and kept the nice definition after it dried. Yes shrinkage got me but look how defined my curls are! I liked that when the product dried my hair was still soft and didn't get that crunchy feeling but still looked defined even without any gel or extra product. This "fresh curls" as it's called did just that and still kept with the slight smell of vanilla cake batter (my words not theirs) which is a huge selling point for me. It's a slight blue/green color which I attribute to the avacado but who knows!
Hello second piece of hair. Check or the before, wet and dry looks. The hair milk did minimize shrinkage for me but it didn't moisturize my curls enough for me. The product is light. Like a 4 on my heavy scale. Where as the fresh curls is like a 6 which I love. The hair milk still had my hair soft but you could feel that it wasn't maintaining the moisture like it could. I usually follow the Moisture Milk with the "Curl Maker" and that defines and holds the curls nicely.
I did it! I wanted a little help in the length department. My last trim hurt my soul, yes my hair is healthy but I'm missing like two inches. But of course instead of just waiting for my hair to grow (like what 6 months?) I decided to get those two inches back plus some of course. I tried KinkyCurlyYaki clip ins 18" 220g. Yay its long, and thick but I like full coverage with minimal leave out and it doesn't quite do it for me.
I followed the instructions on cowashing the hair before you wear it (which you have to do) and also sealed the wefts to minimize shedding.
So it's the first month of my year long healthy hair challenge. It's where I'm trying a new hair line each month and only that line along with protective styling and care to improve the health of my hair.
So today I started using Camille Rose Naturals and can I say it smells like heaven? Like I can't stop inhaling to sniff my hair. Tonight I washed my hair and used the deep conditioner. Even though it's cocoa mango, the deep conditioner smells like vanilla cake... and it even has the consistency of cake batter. I love it just for that. (Y'all know I like heavy products)
Here's my hair before using anything on it. We will use this as the before photos for the challenge.
Here's the deep conditioner from heaven. (Or at least the bakery because it smells edible)... its feels super thick and heavy but when it gets on your hair it feels nice and light. The ingredient list is beautiful: from vitamin e, to peppermint oil, shea butter, coconut oil, hemp seed and many other awesome ingredients. With all that in a jar how can it not be wonderful? I've read other Naturals get hooked after one week.... maybe I shouldn't have tried this line first? But I digress....
I washed my hair and slicked it back into a low pony and tied it up for the night... Yeah I left the deep conditioner in, I know I know I'm supposed to be taking better care of my hair, it's the first month, give me a break! Lol
