So let’s talk empties. I’ve accumulated most of these items over the past 2 months. Some hair care and some skin care (mostly hair care). Now that I’m able to wear my hair curly without fear of catching pneumonia I’ve been able to empty out old products and make room for some new stuff!
In no particular order, the first thing is this Fight Fallout Niacin3 & Caffeine Root Stimulator spray by OGX. I love the packaging. It’s perfect for travel and the nozzle is ideal for getting the product right on the scalp.
I wasn’t a fan of the product itself. Every time I used it, my scalp would itch like crazy almost immediately after application. I tried it multiple times and each time I noticed an intense itching sensation right after I applied the product. I typically love OGX products and this one in particular has very high ratings on multiple websites. I just think there was an ingredient in it that my scalp didn’t like.
I got the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Curl Nourish Butter Cream to use as a leave-in conditioner. I heard The Glamtwinz say they loved it so I figured I would give it a try. (They are real life hair goals!). After using the entire bottle I can say that ennnnnnnn, nothing special. I will not be re-purchasing. It smells good and has a nice consistency. Not too light but not too heavy. I didn’t notice anything special after I applied the cream. My hair didn’t feel more nourished. My curls were not anymore popping. There was just nothing memorable about this product.
Last year I did a huge Carol’s Daughter unboxing (click the link to watch). One of the items I purchased was a Cream-to-lotion Hair Milk. The idea intrigued me plus I’d tried some other things from the Hair Milk line that I liked. The product lived up to its claim. It did change in consistency from a cream to more of a lotion when rubbed in-between my hands. This is another very light product. Better for summer or for anyone with fine hair. I have thick hair which prefers heavier products so this didn’t really do that much for me.
I love a good hair oil. I’ve tried so many that I’ve lost count. The Monoi Sacred Strengthening Serum is pretty damn good. I liked it better for my straight hair versus my curly hair. It smells amazing and is nourishing without being too heavy. It comes in a sleek glass bottle that makes it feel so luxurious. The only downside, it is $30. Good news, Carol’s Daughter almost always has a sale or special offer going on so be sure to check the website if there’s ever anything you want to try.
The final hair item I managed to get through is another oil by Carol’s Daughter. It is the Marula Curl Therapy Softening Serum. I loved this for my curly hair. It softened my curls and made my hair smell amazing! Some of Carol’s Daughter’s product are too fragrant. This one was not. Whenever I used this my husband would mention how good my hair smelled (I guess the secret’s out of the bag now). The packaging of this is not as sleek as the Monoi oil. It comes in a plastic container with interchangeable tops. One cap is a pump and the other is a pour. I chose to go with the pour cap. I would definitely purchase this again especially for my summer hair.
The last and final thing is an essence by May Coop. This is the 4th (maybe 5th) bottle I’ve gone through. I LOVE this stuff. It’s fast absorbing and a nice touch to swipe over your skin after toning, in preparation for moisturizers, serums, etc. It last a long time. A little goes a long way. I keep getting the travel size but I think it’s time to break down and get the big daddy.
And voila! All done. The end. I hope this was helpful or at least insightful. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and what your thoughts were.
