My goal aside from healthy hair is to also curate the perfect regimen for my thick and curly mane. One that adds to and maintains the moisture balance in my otherwise dry hair, while also promoting hair growth and length retention. Everything so far is so good! I have managed to fall even more in love with my natural curl pattern, more than I ever thought I would and these products are part of the reason why!

Why did you get a relaxer? My hair is the thickest I’ve ever seen it, but my mom says that it was like this when I was younger. When I asked her why she decided to relax my hair in the first place, she says it was because it was “too thick”. Fortunately, I have always had a positive experience with relaxers, so I have a benevolent view of them; by relaxing my hair it made it easier for both my mom and I to comb my hair. Ultimately, my mom did it to help preserve the quality of my hair until I was ready to take on the full responsibility for myself.

The story goes: Target had one of their red-tag specials, buy three and get a $5 Target card (basically BOGO) on the L’Oreal EverCurl Sulfate-Free Shampoo/Conditioner ($5.99). I hadn’t heard much on the L’Oreal systems and couldn’t find too many reviews on YouTube or other hair blogs, so had I no expectations for this results of this product.

Ideal for dried out locks but great for all hair types.
• Deep Condition
I must confess that I was skeptical about this at first, even after all of the rave reviews on Instagram and throughout the WebSphere. I bought this product at Kroger’s one day on a whim and have not been disappointed with my hair results since. This product is worth ALL of the hype; it’s inexpensive and amazing quality. Aussie is really worth a try; I would highly recommend spending the $3 to pamper your precious locks.
I had tried too many expensive treatments and conditioners with no results for my curly hair. Even brushing my hair could be torturous, but this amazing little bottle has made my great difference in the way my hair feels since the first use. I was losing too large an amount of hair on wash days as it was very difficult to detangle, and keep it detangled, but now,my hair feels so smooth, silky , healthy and shiny. I have very thick, very dry/brittle hair (naturally), so it needs daily added moisture. I’m talking vitamin E oil, castor oil, hair and hair milks. My scalp drinks everything up usually, but here lately I’ve noticed a difference in its moisture retention level. After using Aussie, my hair days later still feels soft and completely hydrated; I’m finding that less and less oil is needed daily to prevent breakage and to stay hydrated. The product comes out as a sweet-smelling heavy cream; while, in my head it leaves my tresses silky smooth and soft, all while giving my hair its much-needed slip. One thing I do need to mention, which surprised when I got ready to use this, it’s not resealable. There is an open spot on the base where the product pours out when squeezing the sides. I thought it quite odd at first, but now I think it’s kind of quirky and fine. Regardless, of the outward design, this product should have a home on every countertop in America!
