Directions:

After shampooing and conditioning with Tension Release Hair Wash and Strength Restoring Conditioner, apply a quarter size amount of Super Softening Hair Butter to damp or dry hair. Do not rinse. Use daily or as often as needed.

 

Dark & Lovely’s Super Softening Hair Butter from their anti-breakage Au Naturale line is pretty phenomenal! Even though coconut oil is the third ingredient, my hair was left soft and moisturized. I think this might be a first for me after using a commercial product with coconut oil within the first 10 ingredients! I’m kind of shocked! My biggest hurdle in my natural hair journey has been length retention and preventing split ends. I have spent most of my time either experiencing breakage or trimming off single strand knots (SSKs), mid-shaft splits, and split ends. Because the ends of our hair are the oldest part of our mane, they are quite fragile and, therefore, more prone to breakage than the rest of our hair. After using Dark & Lovely’s Root to Tip Mender with great success, I set my sights on trying their Hair Butter to develop a plan of attack against hair breakage and damage BEFORE it has a chance to even begin!

It claims to reverse dry, damaged hair and transform it into moisturized strands that are supple and full of shine. This Hair Butter also promises to reconstruct damaged strands sans drying alcohols, mineral oil, parabens, or petrolatum … talk about beautiful hair without compromise! After using the Hair Butter for a few weeks now, I am quite pleased! It worked well in an uber moisturized twist-out and even gave me an angelically soft bomb wash ‘n go—no gel required! I liked this Hair Butter so much that when I saw a Dark & Lovely coupon in my Sunday paper for $2 off, I immediately purchased a second jar despite still having half of my first jar left.

Dark & Lovely’s Super Softening Hair Butter has a similar fresh, clean scent as the Root to Tip Mender (except milder).  The product is extremely thick and creamy. I can turn the entire jar upside down without fear of product waste. However, it doesn’t weigh down my fine hair or make it feel oily! Even after using it every day for an entire week before washing my hair, I had zero product buildup on my scalp and absolutely no residual “gunk” on my hair follicles. Honestly, this works light years better than any SheaMoisture leave-in I’ve tried, and I’ve tried quite a few! So, I have ZERO complaints.

The Super Softening Hair Butter contains guarana root (aka paullinia cupana seed extract), a caffeinated berry, which helps to stimulate blood circulation in the scalp. It also contains honey, a natural humectant that helps to regulate and retain moisture in the hair. As a result, when the Hair Butter is combined with the Hair Wash and Conditioner, it will aid in preventing hair breakage so that each strand can grow healthier, stronger, and longer.

Although this Hair Butter  is a hair moisturizer Dark & Lovely specifically designed to quench dry, breaking transitioning hair, I find that it has worked wonders for my parched, extremely low porosity, natural hair. And, if used in an appropriate quantity, I think it would work equally well for relaxed hair, too.

This anti-breakage Au Naturale line also has an Anti-breakage Tension Release Wash (a shampoo free of sulfates, parabens, and silicones), an Anti-breakage Strength Restoring Conditioner (a 2-in-1 rinse-out conditioner and deep conditioning treatment free of mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum), a Length Retention Melt in Softness Detangling Co-Wash (a co-wash free of mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum that promises to gently melt away both brittleness and tangles) , a Length Retention Inch by Inch Strengthening Balm (a product free of mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum that rebuilds hair fibers by reinforcing weak strands from the inside out), a Length Retention Nice & Neat Braiding Custard (a styler free of mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum that claims to keep braids looking fresher longer), and an Anti-breakage Root to Tip Mender  (a hair treatment free of mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum that resuscitates frazzled, frayed hair back to life by eradicating split ends and breakage before it has a chance to begin).

Try one or all of the products … But, the Super Softening Hair Butter pairs extremely well with the Root to Tip Mender.

Goals Beauty Complete Healthy Hair Oil

I received  Goals Beauty Healthy Hair Oil for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Ingredients:

Apricot Oil, Flax Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Ginger Root, Biotin, Burdock Root, Gotu Kola, Fenugreek, Olive Oil, Amla Oil, Carrit Oil, Black Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Horsetail Powder, Essential Oils for Scent, & A Multitude of Blessings.

 

Directions:

Massage a small amount into head from scalp to the ends of hair. Use as often as needed. Do not rinse out. Style as desired. 

May also be used as a hot oil treatment: Massage into hair as directed. Cover with a plastic cap and sit under moderate heat for 5-15 minutes. Next, gently rinse out. For best results, do not shampoo out the oil. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Keep out of the reach of children. EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Do not use if safety seal is broken. 

 

According to the product label, Goals Beauty Complete Healthy Hair Oil is “a biotin-infused, fatty acid, antioxidant-rich, healthy hair oil that promotes stronger, healthier hair while serving as an antiseptic moisturizer. This hair tonic aids in a healthy scalp by clearing scalp irritations, including dandruff and skin inflammation, which may interfere with healthy hair growth.”

I like the fact that this Healthy Hair Oil comes in a black bottle so I don’t have to worry about the formula being altered (i.e., by sunlight, etc). I also love that this bottle has a twist applicator top. Usually, the first thing I do when I am trying a new hair growth oil is transfer the oil into a different bottle with a traditional or slanted applicator top, or use my Roots Only bottle. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do that with this bottle because it came with one. The spout even adjusts. All you have to do is twist it open more or less for the size opening you prefer.

My only complaint (about the bottle) is that it is difficult to gauge how much to adjust the opening (at least initially). For instance, when I first applied the oil to my scalp, hours later, I had oil dripping down my neck, my forehead, the sides of my face, everywhere! LOL. It was because I couldn’t readily see whether the hole at the top of the applicator was open too wide or too narrow. As a result, apparently a lot more oil was coming out than I thought! So, err on the side of caution. It took me a good week to get the bottle opening perfectly adjusted, and I feel like I wasted a lot of oil in the process!

Other than that, I absolutely adore how light this oil is. It never weighed down my fine hair strands (except in the beginning when I accidentally applied 2-3x too much oil due to operator issues with the twist top)! It has a pleasant slightly fruity scent that I enjoy. Nothing strong or overbearing. And, the oil itself is quite thin and almost transparent (slightly reminiscent of the Ancient Secrets oil I tried way back when).

I used the Healthy Hair Oil for four weeks (28 days). The company website doesn’t provide a list of ingredients (or even directions), so I typed them all out above, for your convenience. Watch the video below to find out what I think about this product in greater detail and to see how well this Healthy Hair Oil worked for me …

Dark and Lovely Au Natural Anti-Breakage Root to Tip Mender, 4 oz (Pack of 2)

Ingredients:

Aqua / Water / Eau, Cetearyl Alcohol, Aminopropyl Triethoxysilane, Parfum / Fragrance, Cetyl Esters, Amodimethicone, Behentrimonium Chloride, Lactic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey, Hexyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Alcohol, Trideceth-6, Linalool, Paullinia Cupana Seed Extract, Limonene, Cetrimonium Chloride, 2-Oleamido-1,3-Octadecanediol, Coumarin, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Geraniol, Isoeugenol, Citronellol.

 

Directions:

After shampooing and conditioning with Tension Release Hair Wash and Strength Restoring Conditioner, apply Root to Tip Mender to roots and pull through to ends. Proceed with your styling regimen. For a daily moisturizing treatment, follow up with our Super Softening Hair Butter.

 

Dark & Lovely’s Root to Tip Mender from their anti-breakage Au Naturale line is amazing! My biggest hurdle in my natural hair journey has been length retention and preventing split ends. I have spent most of my time either experiencing breakage or trimming off single strand knots (SSKs), mid-shaft splits, and split ends. Because the ends of our hair are the oldest part of our mane, they are quite fragile and, therefore, more prone to breakage than the rest of our hair. This  Root to Tip Mender promises to allow you to “skip your next snip appointment,” by preventing hair breakage and damage BEFORE it has a chance to even begin! It claims to resuscitate “frazzled, frayed hair” back to baby smooth strands.

I must say the Root to Tip Mender lived up to the hype. I have been using this product for almost two months now, and since dusting my ends, I have noticed 75% fewer SSKs and split ends. Now, keep in mind, I have VERY fragile, super fine, low porosity hair that tends to become dry, frizzy, and broken at the gentlest whisper of the wind! So, this is NO small feat. In fact, I liked my Root to Tip Mender results so much that when I ran out, I purchased a pack of 4!

I love the fresh, clean scent of the Root to Tip Mender. The product is light enough to moisturize my parched ends yet thick and creamy. However, it doesn’t weigh my fine hair down or make it feel greasy! Honestly, my only complaint is that it comes in such a small bottle (4 oz. to be exact). As a result, I don’t think it’s exactly conducive for “root to tip” use. If your natural hair is anything like mine, it would soak up the product in a couple of weeks if used all over your head as suggested by the moniker on the label. Instead, I use it exclusively to combat split ends and mid-shaft splits. And, so far, the Root to Tip Mender has worked wonderfully for that purpose.

The Root to Tip Mender contains guarana root (aka paullinia cupana seed extract), a caffeinated berry, which helps to stimulate blood circulation in the scalp. It also contains honey, a natural humectant that helps to regulate and retain moisture in the hair. As a result, when the Root to Tip Mender is combined with the Hair Wash and Conditioner, it will aid in preventing hair breakage so that each strand can grow healthier, stronger, and longer.

This anti-breakage Au Natural line also has an Anti-breakage Tension Release Wash (a shampoo free of sulfates, parabens, and silicones), an Anti-breakage Strength Restoring Conditioner (a 2-in-1 rinse-out conditioner and deep conditioning treatment free of mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum), a Length Retention Melt in Softness Detangling Co-Wash (a co-wash free of mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum that promises to gently melt away both brittleness and tangles) , a Length Retention Inch by Inch Strengthening Balm (a product free of mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum that rebuilds hair fibers by reinforcing weak strands from the inside out), a Length Retention Nice & Neat Braiding Custard (a styler free of mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum that claims to keep braids looking fresher longer), and an Anti-breakage Super Softening Hair Butter (a hair moisturizer free of alcohol, mineral oil, parabens, and petrolatum that is specifically designed to quench dry, breaking transitioning hair).

Try one or all of the products … I’ve got my sights set on the Anti-breakage Super Softening Hair Butter next!

Goals Beauty Healthy Hair Vitamins is a hair growth supplement infused with amino acids, natural herbs, and minerals to assist with attaining longer, stronger, and healthier hair. One bottle contains 60 tablets (a one-month supply). The serving size is 2 tablets. They should be taken daily, preferably with meals. Because the instructions don’t specify how the supplement should be taken apart from that, I contacted the company for guidance. The first two days I took both tablets with my breakfast. However, according to them, for optimum results, the supplement should be taken twice a day with a meal (e.g., at breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner). I was pretty consistent. I only missed 1 day over the course of a month.

After a week of taking these hair growth pills, I started to have problems sleeping. I immediately looked on the back of the bottle, and after sifting through all the ingredients, I saw “OptiMSM (methylsulfonylmethane) 250 mg.” MSM! I almost cringed. For those who have been following me on my blog for several years, you know that I have an extreme sensitivity to MSM, to the point that it gave me migraines and prolonged insomnia when taken in large doses. Thankfully (likely due to the small dose), I only suffered mild insomnia for 4-5 days. I noticed that I only had trouble sleeping when I took the daily dosage at lunch AND dinner instead of at breakfast AND lunch. So, I made a concerted effort to take the pills with my first two meals of the day. On days where I was worried that I might not be able to do so, I took both tablets with my breakfast rather than risk having trouble falling asleep all night long.

I took the supplement for four weeks (28 days). The company website doesn’t provide a list of ingredients, so I took a picture of the back of the pill bottle, for your convenience.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

SK_II Facial Treatment Essence Skincare Trial Kit ( 4 Items ) SKII, SK2

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence claims to address the five dimensions of beautiful skin: (1) reducing spots, (2) diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, (3) correcting skin texture, (4) improving firmness, and (5) elevating radiance. It contains 90% pure Pitera™ in every bottle. Pitera is a natural by-product of yeast fermentation that is rich in vitamins, amino acids, and minerals that help to heighten the skin’s natural surface-rejuvenation process. This product was also uniquely formulated to better assist skin with better absorbing serums and moisturizers. Your skin’s moisture is left replenished to help prevent dryness, its texture is smoothed for soft, even skin, and its renewal cycle is moderated.

Ingredients: Saccharomycopsis Ferment Filtrate**, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Aqua (Water/ Eau), Sodium Benzoate, Methylparaben, Sorbic Acid. *Pitera.

Directions: Sprinkle a teaspoon into your hands, then press the essence gently and evenly onto your face and neck. Your skin will absorb the essence quickly and naturally. Layer with your serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen, in that order.

I have sensitive, combination skin. My face tends to be super oily in my T-zone and dry to normal everywhere else. The first time I used this product, I was NOT impressed. It just seemed okay. I dripped some of the Treatment Essence onto my fingertips, but it was kind of watery and difficult to control/apply. While my skin felt soft after my initial application, the dry patches on my cheekbones were not fully moisturized. As a result, I added a few additional drops of product to my fingertips and applied it specifically to that area. My skin instantly looked and felt more hydrated.

Day 2, I only needed one application of the Essence. This time, I poured some of the product onto a cotton round and gently applied it to my face and neck. This technique seemed to work much better for me than the one suggested on the bottle (e.g., sprinkling a teaspoon of the product into your hands). By day 3, my skin seemed fully “adjusted” to the product. I didn’t notice an improvement in the texture of my skin, though, until after I had used the product for about 3 weeks. But, I absolutely love how light and refreshing this Treatment Essence is on my skin. And, I am grateful that it has such a neutral scent.

I usually think skin and hair care products with this kind of price tag are overrated. However, after extended use, I can definitely say that this miracle water is worth all the hullabaloo! My sensitive, combination skin feels much more balanced, smooth, and even. I recommend applying this treatment directly after cleansing your face (and before proceeding to your other facial serums and creams). After 4-5 weeks, I noticed a marked improvement in the fine lines on my face. I am a very expressive person, and had quite noticeable “laugh lines,” especially on my forehead. But, they are barely visible now unless I intentionally furrow my brows! Moreover, my T-zone doesn’t seem to be overproducing so much oil any more. I’ve noticed that my skin is much less oilier in that area, which is a HUGE plus!

My sensitive skin can sometimes appear a little dull from time to time. But, not anymore! After only a few weeks of using the Treatment Essence, I observed that my complexion seems overall much brighter. As a woman of color prone to hyperpigmentation (in the summer time), that’s no small task. The darkness under my eyes has lightened slightly and is much less pronounced. My face also feels firmer, too! In fact, my skin has been looking (and feeling) so great lately, I’ve only worn makeup TWICE in the last 6 weeks, and it wasn’t even my full-face routine! For added benefits, use twice a day (morning and night) and/or combine with SK-II’s Facial Treatment Clear Lotion.

SK_II, SK2 Facial Treatment Essence [Pitera Essence] 75ml / 2.5 oz

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is not for the faint of wallet! My 5.4 oz container retails between $179 and $214, depending on the retailer and whether it is on sale. Although expensive, because of the concentrated formula and small amount that is needed each time, my 5.4 oz bottle will last for probably another 10-12 months (maybe even longer) given that I have barely put a dent in it after almost 2 months’ of use! However, because the Essence comes in a glass bottle, I was quite paranoid about dropping it and breaking it. This product is way too expensive for a mishap of that proportion! Every time I use the Essence, I feel the need to open the outer box carefully and gingerly untwist the top cap. This is certainly not a product you can be in a rush to use …

PROS

  • Great for MOST skin types (normal, dry, combination, and sensitive)
  • Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Softens skin
  • Moisturizes skin
  • Smooths the surface of skin
  • Not sticky or oily on the skin
  • Synthetic fragrance-free
  • Sulfate-free
  • GMO-free
  • Can be used twice daily
  • Great value; bottle will last a LONG time
  • Neutral fragrance

CONS

  • The cost; even the 2.5 oz travel-sized bottle sells between $89 and $99!
  • Contains paraben preservatives (e.g., methylparaben)
  • Not generally recommended for oily skin types
  • A little watery
  • Glass bottle looks gorgeous but can break easily

Want great skin? Skip the laser resurfacing treatment, and opt for this SK-II Facial Treatment Essence instead! It is definitely worth the investment.

The HONEY BLOWOUT Honey Treatment on Natural Hair

FTC Disclaimer

I received The Honey Blowout Honey Treatment for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

This blog post contains affiliate links (e.g., to Amazon, eBay, etc.), which means that if you click on one of the product links and place an order, I’ll receive a small commission. This helps support my blog and allows me to continue to create content like this.

The Honey Blowout Honey Treatment was created by Philadelphia native, Carla Clarkson, (aka “The Hair Maven”).  Honey Blowout is a treatment for all hair types whether straight, wavy, curly, or chemically treated (e.g., permanent hair color, relaxers ,etc). It can be used as a (1) pre-shampoo, (2) co-wash, (3) conditioner, or (4) deep conditioner.

 

Ingredients: water, honey complex, aloe complex, ethal, pure honey, honey/miel, essential oils, vitamin e oil, mild fragrance, natural coloring

Directions: Shake well. Apply from ends up to root on wet hair. Comb through using a wide tooth comb. Apply sulfate-free hydrating shampoo* on top of treatment. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. Last, apply The Honey Blowout and comb through. Let sit for 3 minutes. Blow dry and style. 

*Honey Blowout will still work with a regular moisturizing shampoo.

 

 

If used as a deep conditioner, apply the Honey Blowout to wet hair, comb through, add a processing cap, and sit under a bonnet dryer for 20-30 minutes. If you do not have a bonnet dryer, use your body heat to allow the product to penetrate your strands and let the product sit on your hair for an hour. If used as a co-wash, apply to wet hair, massage scalp, and work though product with a wide-tooth comb (or smooth curls with fingertips). Rinse thoroughly with cool water. Repeat if additional cleansing is needed.

According to the company website, best results are achieved when the Honey Blowout Honey Treatment is layered underneath the KeraCare Sulfate-free Hydrating Shampoo. Clarkson recommends following up with the Matrix Sleek Look Smooth Conditioner, blow drying the hair, and then finishing with the H2Pro Professional Ceramic Flat Iron by flat ironing the hair via small sections.

In an effort to prevent premature damage to my fine, fragile hair, I haven’t flat-ironed my hair in 2 years! So, I opted to use the product as a pre-poo and final conditioning treatment prior to blow drying my hair. As a result, I saturated my hair with water with my Waterpik handheld shower head, applied the Honey Blowout from ends to roots, then I layered on my Pantene Moisture Boost Shampoo. I gently lathered both products, rinsed, and repeated the process. Next, I applied my Pantene Moisture Boost Conditioner. Finally, I applied the Honey Blowout one more time, let the product sit on my hair for 3 minutes as a light conditioning treatment, rinsed my hair thoroughly, and then blow dried my hair. if you’re blow dryer-challenged like I am, watch this tutorial. This is the blow drying method I now use, and it works extremely well, especially for fine or kinky hair.

My hair felt soft and silky after only one use. After the second repetition, my hair was 50% detangled. I also noticed that the product seemed to slightly elongate my curls, so I think this would work well even if I left my hair in its natural kinky, coily, curly state. However, the instructions are a little confusing and contradictory, depending on where you look. Even on the company website, the instructions vary. The following video (from the product’s creator) is probably the least confusing one that I found, explaining how to use the product.

Pros

  • pH balanced
  • Adds shine
  • Moisturizes hair
  • Strengthens and fortifies hair
  • Has a built-in heat protectant
  • Smooths hair and prevents frizz
  • Contains no parabens or preservatives
  • Can be used with color-treated hair
  • Can be used with sulfate-free or SLS shampoo
  • Great for ALL hair types (straight, wavy, or curly)
  • Can be used to condition and revive extension hair
  • Can be used for multiple purposes (e.g.,  (1) pre-shampoo, (2) co-wash, (3) conditioner, or (4) deep conditioner)

Cons

  • Cost ($25 for a 12 oz bottle)
  • Instructions are a little confusing
  • Label isn’t water-repellent so it smears after being left in shower after only 1 use

Although this product is a little pricey, considering I only used about ½ an ounce of total product after two lathers and one final conditioning treatment, I think the  price offers great value. Even if you blow dry your hair weekly, one bottle should last you at least 3 months. Since I have fine hair, I will likely get about 6 months of use out of one 12 oz bottle (if used weekly). And, given, how great this product performed for a blow-out, I’m confident it would work wonders on flat ironed hair as well as on curly/coily hair textures as a deep conditioning treatment.
