First Impressions: ApHogee Curlific! Texture Treatment

Recently ApHogee introduced Curlific!, a line of products for textured hair. The Texture Treatment is said to improve elasticity and repair damaged curls, coils, and waves.

Curlific! is serious care for textured hair. Wavy, curly, or coiled hair types are more susceptible to damage than straight hair, due to structure and styling resistance. Weekly use of Curlific! Texture Treatment maintains beautiful hair, regardless of the environment or styling regimen. A must for color treated curls!!

Review: Eco Natural Argan Oil & Shea Butter Eco-Lesterol

A few months ago, I posted about new products from Ecoco, Inc. (view here). I wasn't expecting much from Eco Natural Argan Oil & Shea Butter Eco-Lesterol and thought it'd be similar to other readily available cholesterol treatments. It wasn't up to par though.

Product Claims: Eco-lesterol Ultra Deep Conditioning Organic Hair Treatment is an after shampoo hair treatment that penetrates and smoothes the hair cuticle to make hair stronger, more manageable, shiny and soft. Also Eco-lesterol helps alleviate dry, itchy scalp.

Ingredients (Argan Oil & Shea Butter): Water (Aqua), Stearalkonium Chloride, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol and Ceteareth-20, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cholesterol, Fragrance (Parfum), Ricinodendron Rautanenil (Manketti) Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Panthenol…
