I have never written a product review before primarily for two reasons. I guessed I have never been genuinely “WOWED!” by a product or so extremely pissed off that it was worth mentioning. Well times have changed, and I’m here to tell you that in everyone’s life a little rain must fall. Yes. It’s raining.
Statistics show that a satisfied customer tells one, maybe two people, but an unhappy customer tells basically everybody. It goes without sayin’, I am pretty unhappy and THIS is everybody.
Last week I decided to purchase a new hair care product. Before I go into detail, I must admit that I am a recovering hair product junkie; all most all curly-head naturalistas are. My quest is to find a natural hair care product that will hydrate and moisturize my 4a/4b hair during the fall and winter months. My hair tends to become dry and brittle this time of year.
Initially I was looking for a product that contained agave oil or agave nectar; so being a good naturalista, I headed directly to my local health food store.
I arrived as the store was closing and immediately asked the sales rep if they sold any natural hair care products that contained agave. She wasn’t sure, but quickly informed me that I had about 5 minutes. So moving as fast as I could, I performed my own search (which was unsuccessful). At that very moment, I should have turned around,
got in my car and drove away.
In that order.
As a recovering hair product junkie, I knew when I started my hunt; that was not going to happen. I went there for hair care products and I was not leaving without them.
Unfortunately for me, I was so hotsie totsie. I settled and purchased Coconut Soft Curls Hair Cream by Desert Essence a silicone-free natural leave-in conditioner, infused with desert botanicals and coconut oil. It moisturizes, strengthens and repairs curly hair from damage. I read through the first several ingredients and was quite impressed as everything appeared to be natural and safe. It’s even labeled 100% vegan. Score! Right??
Not so much.
