Update: April 2013

Breaking up the monotony of reviews a bit here:

I need a trim badly; I attempted to get one professionally, but umm, let's just say it didn't work out. That's probably the second time I ever wanted to shed a tear in the salon. The pain and horror were that great. I don't even want to think about the damage that was done during that session.

It's been nearly a year since I last straightened, and I typically do so once in May, but I doubt I will this year. I don't even have a flat iron anymore.

The love affair with henna treatments and Camille Rose Naturals Algae Renew Deep Conditioner continues. Too bad I'm now out of both.

I've tried all of the products I had so there are a ton of reviews coming. I'm also working on getting a male's perspective on products. That should be happening soon.

It's a nice conditioner, but a cleanser it is not. It's very light and runny similar to the consistency of a V05 conditioner (my bottle is empty so no pictures). It doesn't wow in terms of moisture, but it isn't drying either. It's something I would use if my hair is not in need of too much cleansing and is already detangled and sectioned…
