I don't usually combine reviews but thought it would be fitting for As I Am's Curling Jelly and Smoothing Gel. The Curling Jelly is too light for me to use on wash and go's, but the Smoothing Gel is great and also works for smoothing my edges and creating sleek buns.

Defines coils and curls Minimizes frizz Reduces shrinkage and enhances stretch Locks in precious moisture as you harmonize your coils Formulated with nature's best moisturizers and curl boosters
It's been a long time since I've done a review, but I have been trying out some new products, new to me at least.
As I Am Naturally is a more affordable hair product line geared towards natural hair care. They recently became available at Sally Beauty Supply so of course I went and picked up something during one of their sales.
The Coconut Co-Wash is a cleansing conditioner that is supposed to remove product without stripping the hair. Did it do that for me? Yes! Ampro Clear Ice is no joke. BUT the Coconut Co-Wash effectively removed the buildup. Ingredients: Aqueous (Water, Aqua Purificada, Purified) Extracts: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) and Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine), Cetyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Cetearyl Alcohol, PEG-40 Castor Oil, Stearlkonium chloride, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Phytosterols, Serenoa Serrulata Fruit Extract, Quaternium-18, Potassium Sorbate, Fragrance/Parfum, Limonene, Methylisothiazolinone.
I applied Crazy Color in Bordeaux nearly 2-months ago, and the color is still there.
Product Claims: Crazy Color does not require the addition of peroxide. For optimal results, apply to pre-lightened hair. Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Distearoylethyl Hydroxyethylmonium Methosulfate, Ceteareth-30, Citric Acid, Formic Acid, Methylchloroisothiozolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Basic Blue 99, Basic Orange 31, Basic Red 51, Acid Red 52, Basic Yellow 87, HC Blue 15, D & C Red No. 33. Thoughts: At first I didn't care for the color, but now that I've grown to like it, I want it gone simply because I am sick of the mess it creates. It hasn't faded despite my attempts at removal. Even though the color bleeds with the most minuscule bits of moisture...it refuses to leave! I've shampooed 40 times at least, tried bentonite clay, tried shampoo mixes with lemon juice, and somehow the color became more noticeable.
