L’Oreal EverSleek Sulfate-Free Intense Smoothing Conditioner

Sleek hair? Yes, please! My Experience This is decently performing conditioner. My hair was not overwhelmingly sleeker for using the entire line, which I did while trying this conditioner. You can read my experiences with the rest of the line here. If your hair is not overly damaged by heat styling, chemical straightening, or color …

L’Oreal EverSleek Sulfate-Free Intense Smoothing Shampoo

Smoother hair? Sign me up! My Experience Beloved readers, this was a surprisingly strong shampoo considering it is marketed as “gentle” since it is sulfate-free. I used this shampoo with the entire EverSleek system. You can read my other experiences with it here. This did not give me a new head of hair (my hair was …

Yes to Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer SPF 30

  AML & Sunscreen I’m a time-jumping, shape-shifting, fire-breathing beast about sunscreen. Why? In the foolishness of my (fairly recent) youth, I suffered three–count them: “One! Two!

Yes to Grapefruit Even Skin Tone Moisturizer SPF 15

  Beloved readers, I was ten twelve kinds of excited to try this. Why? I bathe in sunscreen. I’ve done so since my third bout of acute sun-poisoning. Yes. Third. After my skin took a full TEN MONTHS to recover from the last episode, I changed my ways. What was I doing to poison myself …

Beloved readers, this was my go-to curl cream for several months. (Why do I constantly try new products? I’m hopelessly curious.) My Experience It spreads quickly, disappears into hair immediately, and leaves it shiny and defined. I was utterly shocked at how well my coily, curly, dense hair (virgin 3c/4a) was gorgeously defined, soft, and had noticeable added …
