Review: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
I have been dying to try this product since the line came to Target. A styler for thick curly hair? Yep I fit the bill!
I actually got this on Black Friday from a fellow blogger selling unwanted products. So I got it for about $5 and I was too excited.
So today I washed and deep conditioned my hair in big twists and left them in while rinsing the conditioner out.
(if you have thick hair or if you're planning to grow your hair long I suggest this method! No tangles)
I wanted to style my hair in small twists so I just took each big twist and went from there.
I applied Giovanni Direct Leave In
(another product I'm trying out. I got this 2oz travel size for about $1.50 at Whole Foods)
I applied the leave in to the entire section then grabbed a smaller section to make a twist.
I applied the curl smoothie to each twist.
The product was very runny and literally just sat on my hair. It looked gross.
Im thinking maybe I should have applied it to an entire section rather than each twist.
Anyway! It eventually dried and my hair does feel really soft although slightly oily.
I had high hopes for this product. I mean my hair smells and feels great but I think it looks kind of dull :/ like my twists just don't look right!
I'm praying this will result in an awesome twistout.
--Oh and I'm not really feelin the Giovanni direct leave in either. My regular ol Moisture Maniac will do just fine.
