Natural Hair: Product Review
Hey Guys! It's downright shameful that it has taken me this long to get to another natural hair post, but I have come across an amazing product and I want to share it with our readers! The product is called the Dark & Lovely 6 Week Anti-Reversion Cream Serum. Check out the description from their site:
Our first styling product developed specifically for relaxed hair, allowing you to preserve your straight, smooth hair up to six weeks in-between relaxing. It is designed to help control frizz, lock in shine while keeping hair soft, full of body and manageable from one shampoo to the next. Also suitable for use on color treated hair.
...I know, I know. We're natural. Why would we need an anti-reversion product for relaxed hair? I'll tell you why. I recently went to New York for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring 2013, and we had the pleasure of attending the Harlem's Fashion Row show. Harlem's Fashion Row was held at Jazz at Lincoln Center on September 7, 2012. The show featured four incredibly talented emerging designers as well as HFR’s designer of the year: Latisha Daring. It turns out that Dark and Lovely was a sponsor, and the Anti-Reversion Serum was in the gift bag. After weeks of sitting in a gift bag in the corner of my room I thought to myself what the heck I'm just going to try it... OH. MY. GOSH!!!
I don't know what the secret is, but whatever they put in that product makes my hair so unbelievably soft. It's incredible. The product worked so well on my hair that two days later when I went to the salon my hairdresser asked me what I was using on my hair because she was blown away by how how it felt and the way it moved.
Here's the catch. My advice is to only use it if you are wearing your hair in its natural state -the serum will revert your hair because it is meant to be used on wet hair and then blow dried. If I am wearing my hair flat-ironed, I'll use it maybe once a week, if that, and then section my hair, individually brush out each section with a wig brush and roll parted hair with flexible hair rods, leaving them in overnight (photo in album). This is the best alternative to putting heat on my hair btw.
Check it out . It's just a suggestion lol, but I loooooove it! It's been wonderful for me, and I'll def be recommending it to all my natural girlfriends ;-)
God is love,
