Description on front:
Indulge in argan oil, whipped into an opulent, decadent creme to lavish each strand in moisture, smoothing and nourishing the outer cuticle for super-hydrated, soft, shiny hair. Extra moisturizing
Description on back:
Why you want it: It's simply the creme de la creme! All the benefits of penetrating argan oil that hydrates within, this argan creme also smoothes the outer layers of the hair cuticle for touchable softness and shine
After shampooing, apply conditioner generously to wet hair, working through to ends. Wait 3-5 minutes. Rinse hair thoroughly.
This conditioner wasn't anything super special to me at first. When I first bought this, I used it on my AliExpress hair, and thought it was just like any other conditioner. When I used it on my natural hair..again, it was nothing spectacular.
I didn't actually start liking the conditioner until recently. I pre-pooed with coconut oil overnight, and when I used this conditioner after shampooing, I was in heaven. My hair was SO soft, easy to detangle and it was simply amazing. This was the only time I felt like the conditioner delivered.
Would I buy again? I'm not sure. The product isn't terrible, but it's also not the most amazing thing when I don't pre-poo with coconut oil overnight.
Bottom line: 7/10

The color experience I had this time was quite different from all of my other ones. July 8th I removed my protective style (box braids). I did a protein treatment followed up by a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment in order to prep my hair for color. July 13th was my appointment. I got the color, a trim and flat iron.
Now, the color I wanted wasn’t what I received before. The hairstylist I went to, I was under the impression that she was going to mix the color herself because that’s what we discussed maybe 2 months before. The day of, I seen that it was a box color. I’m in no way bashing her, but if I would have known it was going to be a box color, I would have gone and picked up the color myself.
The color was applied, sat under the dryer….all that good stuff. I go to the bowl for her to rinse it out and I’m not sure if it was shampoo that she put in my hair or what, but she said that she had mixed in a little bit of bleach because my hair came out dark. My hair has never been bleached before and my color came out a LOT more vibrant than how it came out this time. It could have been because my hair is naturally dark brown and I had pretty much cut out most of the color except for the front of my head.
All in all, I’m going to wait until my hair grows out some, buy the colors that I originally wanted and possibly go back to the lady that has been dying my hair since I’ve started in high school. I don’t even know what the color is in my head currently because I didn’t get a chance to see the front of the box before she threw it away, she just showed me the color I was supposed to end up with on the side of the box.
The color I wanted was supposed to be a purplish red color, similar to what I've had before, just with a more purple hue. This is like a sandy brown/reddish color. Am I happy with this color? Not at all. Will I deal with it? For the time being yes.
Friday, August 7
- Drink Water -- Definitely been keeping up with my water intake.
- HSN Gummies at least 4 times a week if not every day -- I've been on a roll taking my HSN gummies pretty much every day. It definitely helps that they taste good, so I don't have any issue with taking them
- Protein Treatment -- I've been thinking about buying an actual product of a protein treatment instead of those packs. Or I should just stock up on the protein packs. Either one.
- Baby ends -- I haven't been doing anything "super special" to baby my ends, I have been making sure they're coated whenever I wear my hair out (which is pretty much 3-4 days out of the week)
Another month of simple goals. If you have any goals for the month of August, feel free to share in the comments if you'd like :)
I failed at being prepared for when I took my protective styling out. I wasn't aware of how low my products were, so of course there's going to be more empties than usual.
