So, I've been slacking on the blogging. Before you start thinking that I've started popping bon-bons and watching soaps (are those still on the air?), let me tell you... I've been wrangling a hellish 3 year old, nursing an infant through teething, house hunting, AND searching for a job. How's that for multi-tasking? Through it all I've been on my no processed food kick (cutting myself a slight bit of slack...), and cooking up a storm. What some of you may not know, is that some of these reviews are due TODAY. I am *such* a procrastinator. Truth is, I have been using all of the products here and there, but never taking the time to write up a blog, a review, or take pictures. I know. So lame. So, here it goes. First off, Sundari Neem and Coconut hair treatment oil.
I have to say, I adore this stuff. Like some of my fellow beauty ambassadors, I didn't give this a fair shot the first time around. I received one sample packet with a previous purchase, threw it in my hair for half an hour, washed it out, and was underwhelmed. I did like that it washed out easily (I always pray treatment oils do!), but other than that, I didn't see what the big whoop was.
So, for the last few weeks, I have used it every other night on my ends only. Leaving it in overnight (it didn't damage my pillowcases), made a HUGE difference for me. I was so happy with how shiny my hair was! I have super fine hair, but a ton of it, and since my husband convinced me to grow it out, I struggle with not putting it in a ponytail everyday. Here is a picture I snapped after a few uses. I wish you could REALLY see the shine. I assure you, it's there :)
Again, I am using my Pacifica lip tint in Blood Orange. I don't think I have stopped using this at all since I get it last month. Love.
Also used in this picture, T'eez 'build me' Volume spray. I cannot tell you how many comments I got on my Facebook about how long and thick my hair looked! I loved that it takes seconds to add in to my routine, and makes such an impact. This will definitely stay in the rotation!
On to the not-so-great. So not great, in fact, that I didn't want to post pictures. T'eez "Bounce Me" Styling Cream. It seems I am the unpopular opinion here, so let me start by saying that I have very difficult hair. It is easily weighed down, and won't hold a curl. I tried what some of the others were doing, and 'scrunching' my hair, to see how it would work. It didn't. I was ever so careful, and dried it with a t-shirt and everything. It was so limp and greasy looking, I couldn't stand it. I thought that maybe if I gave myself a blowout it would help the situation? So, I sectioned off my hair and started blow drying. When I was done it was oily and still limp :( I only used a dime sized amount, so I don't think it was an issue of being too much, either.
So, since I am not going to use the rest of it, here is what I want... the first person (has to be a subscriber, and follow me on Bloom.com!) to comment, I will send you the rest of the tube. Its a squeeze tube, so totally sanitary! I want to see what you have to say about it.
Also, what do you think about contests like this? What would you like to win? A bunch of sample size product, one full size?
