HairVeda Whipped Cream - Ends Hydration Leave-In

You're  gonna def hear me talking a lot about going cone free for the next few posts b/c, well frankly since I have done so, some beautiful things have occured. The main and most important aspect since doing so is my hair is back to it's ability to retain moisture.  And so it begins!   I was eager to try HairVeda's Whipped Cream - Ends Hydration, but refused to purchase until I was close to running out of Jane Carter's Nourish & Shine (which btw is so worth the price b/c it's lasted me a couple of months for that small tube).  In  any event I received my HV WC in the mail about a month ago and washed my hair in order to test it out on a clean/fresh head of hair.  Boys & Girls - LEMME TELL YOU SOMETHING (of course in my fire marshall bill voice!), this stuff is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME !!!!!  I mean I just don't know what to say but after I moisturize w/this and seal w/extra virgin olive oil (evoo) (remember how my hair used to hate evoo?!, not anymore but we'll get into this in another post) and go to bed, I wake up in the morn with the softest hair ever.  The end result is as if every bit of every ingredient in this moisturizer has gracefully penetrated it's way past the cuticle layer and was welcomed w/open arms; and meanwhile as I rest at night, it  is carefully absorbed, so that I wake up w/the softest, most supple head of hair I've seen in a couple of years!  On top of that the smell is divine. You all know I have a penchant for tropical and fruity fragrances, so the fact that it fits the fragrance bill just puts this product over the top for me.  And no, the smell is not overbearing, the fragrance is lightly lingering if not gone by morning (I am a perfume wearing gal so I don't like too many fragrances intermingling, it makes me nauseous, no matter how good they all smell individually).  Although not an issue, my only con is that it's not as creamy as I anticipated but trust me it is not a problem at all. I do think I will, rather I know I will go through this 8 oz bottle much quicker than the Jane Carter N&S because of this. 

Overall, this is definitely a staple for me and it will be replacing my Jane Carter N&S (although I am proud that I used JC consistently for a couple of months w/o buying every moisturizing product in site). Hair's to my new victory in hair hydration!

Nature's Gate Herbal Daily Conditioning Conditioner

So I finally found it!  Thanks to From Short to Long (FSTL) for hooking me up with Nature's Gate, my new cowash conditioner of the year.  Lemme tell you how it all begin.  You gals know last year I finally figured out that my hair hates cones. At 1st I couldn't figure out why my hair wouldn't fully absorb moisturizing products and always felt like it had build up and a stiff crunch.  I stopped the protein so I knew it wasn't that and that's when I realized it was cones.  I did my research for natural condishes/poos/moisturizes and that's how I came to build up my Hair Arsenal. My only prob was that I could NOT find a condish 2 cowash w/that was cone free, and honestly I was thinking about  not looking further b/c I absolutely loved my Aussie Moist and didn't think that nothing would compare.  I was willing to take the risk of having some cone some of the time w/my Aussie but lo and behold along came the good news!.... FSTL did a post on cones and I mentioned my dilemma about a cowash condish and she referred me to Nature's Gate.  I immediately ran out to purchase some for my next cowash and try it out.  Folks, I wasn't disappointed!  This stuff is the truth, it has an earthy, musky scent, it reminded me of the spa, my cousin said it reminded her of baby powder and mom says fruit ( I think she needs to be  Anyhoo, this stuff puts some serious moisture into your strands, it's definitely up there w/Aussie Moist. I've used a couple of x's, even after clarifying to test the moisture and ya'll it works.  It's brown, which I found weird, dont ask why.  It resembles apple pie filling sans the apple chunks with the viscosity of apple sauce sans the clumps and graininess (I think I need to stop eyeing this apple on my table!!!!)

 I can't wai to try other condishes from this line.  If I had to rank it, it would come a close 2nd ( I mean neck in neck close) to Aussie (the smell of Aussie by far, nothing can top, I'm in love with it and it's a tad, just a tad bit more moisturizing), but since it finally makes me 100% cone free, it's #1 to me!
