So it’s mid May and things don’t seem to be going well for me. Combined with the financial situation on my hands, a lot of stress has been getting to me and preventing me from being somewhat productive in my school work and at my job. But I’m in a Creative Writing class, so this stress might actually get my writing juices flowing again.
Besides, I get to cheer myself up again with a product review for you! This will be on a product from TRESemme that’s been getting some popularity lately.
This is the Botanique Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Conditioner and it can be found at Target (and perhaps Publix or Wal-Mart?) for about $4.99 plus tax.
I wasn’t too happy when I heard that TRESemme Naturals was being discontinued and replaced with this line. I was pretty reluctant to try this, but after hearing other people’s mixed reviews about this particular conditioner, I decided to fork over some money and give it a try. Plus, I was running low on the Naturals Nourishing Moisture conditioner and I needed a refill.
After about three uses, I think this conditioner is really good! It’s somewhat thick, but not thick to where I can’t get it out of the bottle. The fragrance is a combination of fresh coconut and a perfume-like under note that is pleasant to my nose. When out of the bottle and into my hands, it’s creamy and it spreads easily through my kinky afro with almost no effort.
As for detangling properties, this stuff detangles just as good as the Naturals conditioner! With a little splash of water from my sink, I’m able to effectively finger detangle my afro with no struggle. Some people did say that this stuff simply coats the hair and has no detangling properties. I haven’t had this experience with this conditioner and that’s making me happy.
For moisture, this conditioner leaves my hair soft and easy to manage after rinsing and during my detangling session! I’m left with kinky hair that is fluffy and ready for my usual leave-in conditioners. I believe it’s the coconut oil, coconut milk and aloe vera in it that’s making my hair soft. Plus, my hair doesn’t seem to be bothered by coconut so this is a bonus for me.
If you want to try this out, make sure your hair isn’t protein sensitive or if it can tolerate coconut and aloe vera. Otherwise, if it doesn’t, this conditioner will probably do the exact opposite to your hair and you don’t want that happening.
That’s all I have for now. Please excuse me while I head off to finish a writing assignment for one of my classes.
As always, until next time!
