Natural Hair Product Review: #hairfood

I joined Influenster a few months ago and recently took part in a #sproutvoxbox campaign in which I received a sample of products in exchange for my honest review. I love free stuff qnd I love writing so I’m excited to participate.

The first product I tried was the Clairol Hair Food shampoo and conditioner

because I’m a natural hair enthusiast and a hair product junkie. I don’t normally shampoo my hair (it’s been seven months) but I made an exception in this case for the sake of the review. I really reset that decision.

The shampoo lathered very quick and the suds felt good. It cleaned my hair well. I only washed it once and immediately knew it had stripped my hair of moisture. That’s exactly why I stopped using shampoo in the first place. What a predictable disappointment.

I scrambled to pour the conditioner on my hair hoping to get some hydration back. The conditioner smelled good. It wasn’t as thick as I like it but I was surprised that it had so much slip. I could actually detangle my hair. Unfortunately, it didn’t rehydrate my the way I needed. It was super soft but it was dull. The shine, sheen, and luster that I love was not there.

I deep conditioned my hair with my special concoction but it’s going to take a week of special treatment to get it as moist as it was before. I would have liked to dry the conditioner as a co-wash but the sample size I received wouldn’t allow it. I doubt that I’ll buy it because I have my favorite cheap condition.

I recently realized I have a passion for natural hair during on my journey toward self-acceptance and love. So much of who I am has always revolves around my hair. It reflects how I feel about myself internally. When I am depressed or stressed, I don't do my hair. If I do look like a million bucks, I feel like a million bucks, even if I'm flat broke. I started documenting my transition on Facebook and it spread to Instagram. I have been amazed at how I have come to love my kinks and curls. I didn't even know how to care for it when a started transitioning. It has been so liberating. I assumed the name LoveLEE around the same time as my transition because I needed to remind myself that I'm worthy of love. The image of women like me is skewed by the media and negative stereotypes. I refuse to confine since of love and beauty to society's standards. I'm starting this blog so other women will know that they don't have to be boxed in either. You are beautiful and flawless just the way you are.

Thanks for joining me.

      1. I think the mix of Sodium Lauryl and Laureth sulfates is the main problem, if it is only a succinate or a Laureth sulfate the hair dries a lot less while getting the scalp very clean. Lauryl sulfate is probably the strongest surfantanct in haircare and it is surprising a brand would use it in a moisturizing shampoo
