Review Day: Schwarzkopf Professionals BC Repair Rescue Shampoo &Conditioner

Hey guys! I wanted to review the Schwarzkopf Professionals BC Repair Rescue Shampoo & Conditioner. I got these products in my Bride-To-Be VoxBox for testing and review purposes. I’m working on a post about Influenster, and I will try to get that to you guys soon. But onto the review.

A little background info on my hair: I have been relaxing my hair since I was in middle school, but I have been on my hair journey on and off for about two years now. My natural hair texture is around 4a (because of my relaxer), but is more 4b/4c than anything else. I stretch my relaxers for as long as I want (right now it has been around 7 months post relaxer). I am not transitioning into natural hair, though I use natural hair practices to tend to my new growth. At the current moment, my hair stops close to Arm Pit Length (APL; post trim). Though it is becoming healthy, my hair is still damaged from relaxers and the environment.

Schwarzkopf Professionals BC Repair Rescue Shampoo (for damaged hair)

Info on the back of the bottle: Repair Rescue Shampoo cleanses damaged hair and recharges it with strength and elasticity. BC hairtherapy with Cura+ Protein Complex strengthens the hair structure. Amino Cell Rebuild Technology restores the hair’s elasticity and rebuilds the hair structure from within. For strong and manageable hair full of healthy shine. Application: Massage into wet hair and rinse-out thoroughly. Salon Exclusive.

Retails for: $18

Pros:

  • It made my hair feel a little stronger. Because this is a protein based conditioner, I think this will be good for anyone who feels like their hair is overly soggy from too much moisture, but I would stray away if you’re protein sensitive.
  • It has a pleasant smell. It smells of baby powder, which is very light and fresh smelling. Some may like it, some may hate it.
  • If you have thinner, shorter hair, this product will last a longer time for you. It isn’t as thick as some other shampoos can be, so if you like thinner shampoos, you may like this one.

Cons:

  • It’s very thin. For me, I like creamy conditioners because my new growth is thick. It is simple to get it into my hair, but I feel like I have to use more than to get my hair clean like I like it.
  • The ingredients. Personally, for this to be a salon brand, I would love if the company put the good ingredients (such as the proteins) closer to the top and things like the fragrance more to the bottom. For my relaxed haired ladies, you know we need protein in order to keep our protein/moisture balances right. I don’t like that the proteins are closer to the bottom than the bad ingredients are.
  • The price. I view this shampoo as a clarifying shampoo because it did make my hair feel a little drier than when I use my normal shampoo. Granted, this is a salon brand, so it will cost a little more, but if you’re going to use this shampoo every day or every other day, I’m not a big fan of the price.
  • This is both a pro and a con. This left my hair feeling stripped, kind of like when I use my clarifying shampoo. It left my hair feeling as though I needed to add moisture to it (though I had done a moisturizing deep conditioning beforehand), but not stripped to the point where it was hard to part through. 

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Sodium Chloride, PEG-7, Glyceryl Cocoate, Fragrance (Parfum), Citric Acid, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Polyquaternium-10, Sodium Benzoate, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Laureth-2, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Salicylic Acid, Propylene Glycol, Panthenol, Hydroxpropyltrimonium Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, PEG-55 Propylene Glycol Oleate, PEG-14M, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol, Hydrolyzed Keratin

Initials thoughts: When I first tried out this shampoo, I found it to be runnier and thinner than my normal, standard conditioner. I’m used to a thicker consistency of shampoo, so using this was a little different for me. As always, I washed my hair in 5 sections, taking some of the shampoo and massaging it into my scalp to cleanse it. It gave a little bit of lather, but not how I like it to.

Schwarzkopf Professionals BC Repair Rescue Conditioner (for damaged hair)

Info on the back of the bottle: Repair Rescue Conditioner detangles damaged hair and reinforces it with strength and elasticity. BC hairtherapy with Cura+ Protein Complex strengthens the hair structure. Amino Cell Rebuild Technology restores the hair’s elasticity and rebuilds the hair structure from within. For strong and manageable hair full of healthy shine. Application: Massage into towel-dried hair and rise-out after 2 minutes. Salon Exclusive

Retails for: $21

Pros:

  • I could feel some of the elasticity it added into my hair. Right now, after air drying my hair, I can pull at my hair gently and it will just bounce back. I love that fact my hair bounces back because I can remember a time when it didn’t and my hair would actually break off. If you have an elasticity problem, this may help some.
  • Just like the shampoo, this one has a pleasant smell. The smell of the conditioner reminds me of the Suave Naturals Almond and Shea Butter conditioner and I like the smell of that a lot.

Cons:

  • It made a difference in my detangling; for the worse. I make it a habit to detangle my hair with product in it, and sometimes before I add products. My hair felt a little harder to detangle than it usually is after shampoo washing my hair and I didn’t like that.
  • Like the shampoo, this is a very thin conditioner, one that I think my fellow relaxed ladies, as well as natural ladies, will not like if you love a thicker conditioner for your strands. Personally, this reminds me of the ApHogee 2 Min Reconstructor, but it is a little thinner than the ApHogee. Once again, if you are a fan of thinner conditioners, then this product may be nice for you.
  • The ingredients. For my gripes, look at the con for the shampoo’s ingredients.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Quaternium-87, Propylene Glycol, Isopropyl Myristate, Distearoylethyl Hydroxyethylmonium Methosulfate, Fragrance (Parfum), Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Sodium Methylparaben, Polyquaternium-37, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Panthenol, Hydroxypropyltrimonium, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, PPG-1 Trideceth-6, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, PG-Propyl Silanetriol, Benzyl Salicylate, Hydrolyzed Keratin

Initial thoughts: When I first put this conditioner into my hair, I didn’t notice any problem putting it onto the length of my hair. I put this in the same five sections I washed my hair and let it sit on my hair for the required two minutes. I was expecting it to make my hair feel like my other reconstructor does, but that wasn’t the case. My ApHogee usually makes my hair feel a little stronger, as this one did, but the Repair Rescue Conditioner did not make it easier for me to detangle. It was hard to get my comb through my wet hair (without products) and that it something that really turned me off on the product.

Final thoughts: The shampoo/conditioner were an okay product in my book. With my hair texture, I feel that the shampoo and conditioner did not benefit my hair as much as someone else with a looser texture or finer hair in general. I would not purchase these products on my own because I have other shampoos and conditioners that work well in my hair, but this does not mean I wouldn’t recommend any of you try it out for yourselves. I always say this and it has yet to not hold true; what may not work for me, may work for you. What may work for me, may not work for you. If I had a looser texture and/or finer hair, the shampoo and conditioner would have probably been better for my hair. This isn’t a bad call on the company’s end; the products are great, just not for me.

I hope you all enjoyed this review. Stay tuned because I have more reviews coming. Thank you all for reading and have a great day.

Review Day: Kiss everEZlashes

Hey guys! Today I wanted to review the Kiss everEZlashes. I received these lashes from Influenster for review purposes. Before I get into the review, I want to remind you all that I am working on a blog post dedicated to Influenster as a whole for those who are interested and will go into detail about the program on that blog post.

Kiss everEZlashes
Retail price: $3.99

The style of Kiss lashes I have are 03. They are natural looking lashes that can be worn everyday. These lashes have two applicator strings on each side of the band, that are meant to make the application process easier for those who have not worn lashes before and quicker for those who wear lashes all the time. The lashes feel like they are natural haired and not plastic. The Kiss lashes are also suitable for contact lens wearers. The kit comes with a latex-free liquid lash glue that is bluish in tone when you first apply it to the lashes, but turns clear after a few seconds.

On the back of the box, you will see instructions on how to apply the lashes with the strings. Below, I will list the instructions for you for reference:

  1. Apply to lash glue to lash band; wait 30-60 seconds for adhesive to become slightly clear and tacky. Use with Kiss Strip Eyelash Adhesive.
  2. Hold strings firmly; starting from outer corner working in, position and place along natural lashline. Hold, allowing adhesive to dry completely.
  3. Place finger on corner of lash to secure and GENTLY PULL STRING AWAY.
To Remove Lashes: Gently peel off lash strip, starting at the outer corner. Use oil-based eye makeup remover to remove excess adhesive from lash band and eyelid. Place lashes back onto the tray for future use.
Seems pretty easy huh? Well, let’s get into the pros and cons:
Pros:
  • The lashes aren’t heavy at all. These lashes feel so natural on the eye and give a slightly more glammed up appearance. You could easily wear these lashes everyday, as well as for special occasions.
  • The lash glue that comes with the lashes is pretty darn good. I’ve used Lash Grip before and while that worked, I like this kind of glue better. I don’t have to put my glue on the back of my hand or on the lash tray and use a brush to put the lash on the band. Not only does that take too long, but I can’t touch up my lashes with it like I can the Kiss adhesive. Great job.
  • The lash glue doesn’t pull up a lot of eyeliner either. Another great point with this glue is that if you remove your lashes, you won’t have that much to pick off of the band. The drying time is fast on the glue so you don’t have to wait that long (I waited at least 15 seconds per band) and it stuck onto my lashline like a charm.
Cons:
  • The applicator strings. I understand the idea behind this, but the strings made it harder for me to put on my lashes. I did try two-three times with the strings before I just said forget it and pulled them out. I then applied my lashes with my trusty Tweezerman tweezers and I was on with my day.
So far, the pros outweigh the cons. The strings didn’t work for me, but I have seen some reviews on the Influenster website from ladies who have had success with the strings. Personally, I think it depends on your comfort and skill level with it comes to lashes. I think I get the job done quicker with my tweezers than I do with the strings. I really like these lashes and I tend to swap these out a lot with my Ardell Demure lashes, depending on what type of look I’m going for. In the picture below, I have on both the Kiss and Demure lashes for comparison purposes.
The Kiss lashes (left) compared to my trusty Ardell Demure lashes (right). The Kiss lashes are longer and little fuller compared to the Demure lashes.
If I had to rate these lashes, I’d give them a score of 4/5. They are comfortable to wear all day, don’t feel heavy, and dresses my eyes up nicely. Without the strings, I would give them 5/5. With the strings, 4/5. I hope you all found this informative and enjoyed this review. Stay tuned, because I have more reviews to post for you all, as well as some other non-review posts. Thank you for reading and have a great day!

Review Day! Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer

Hey guys! Today, I wanted to do another review for you all on the Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer. If you read my “Winterizing Your Life: Hair” post (which a lot of you liked; thank you for that!), you will remember that I mentioned this product as one of my favorites to use during the colder months. If you know me in real life, you know I LIVE for this product, but for those who don’t know me, I wanted to review it for you. How can I recommend a product and not tell you what I love and dislike about it? Let’s get started.

Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer

Product details on jar: Moisturizing butters of olive oil and mango produce this intensely rich thermal protecting treatment. Use olive & mango butter moisturizer daily for softer fuller looking hair.

To use: Apply daily to target dry ends and help prevent breakage. Use Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer after application of Break Control Serum.

Pros

  • This is a heavy moisturizer, perfect for the winter months.
  • This moisturizer smells nice, and also makes my hair feel soft.
  • It is not expensive ($5-$6 at my local BSS)
  • The jar will last you a long time; a little goes a long way. On the jar itself, it indicates that this product can last you up to 2 years.
  • This is filled with nice hair ingredients: Olive Fruit Oil (2nd ingredient), Mango Seed Butter, Cocoa Seed Butter, Coconut Oil, Biotin, & Avocado Oil. 
  • Note: The higher a component is on the ingredients list tells how much of that ingredient is in the product. While Olive Oil is 2nd on the ingredients list (meaning it has more olive oil in it), Avocado Oil is the 19th ingredient on the list (meaning that there’s less Avocado Oil in the product). Just be aware of that whenever you are studying hair care labels. 

Cons

  • Because this moisturizer is heavy, this will weigh your hair down. If you’re not a fan of that or you have thinner hair, I would not recommend this moisturizer.
  • This isn’t a con with the product inside the jar, but with the jar itself. The jar has gotten smaller from the last time I purchased it, and the price for it has gone up. Yet, with the cosmetic changes, it still has the “Bonus Size 80% Free” tag on it. I don’t believe that gimmick.
  • This moisturizer has “cones” and parabens in it. From what I’m seeing on the label, this has Dimethicone, & Phenyl Trimethicone, as well as Methylparaben and Propylparaben. If you don’t have a problem with cones or parabens, then this shouldn’t bother you too much. 

Thoughts: I really enjoy this moisturizer for my hair during the colder, crispier months. In my hair experience, I find that my hair stays softer, longer, when I use this during the harsher winter months. Because I stretch my relaxers, I find that this moisturizer does not weigh down my new growth, nor my relaxed strands. For me, I can use this moisturizer twice a day (if needed) and my hair will be fine. Not   only is my hair protected better against the winds, rain, cold air, and snow (mainly ice in my hometown), but I can rock my hair out if I wanted to, and my hair won’t take much damage. I like to use this moisturizer on dry, air dried, and damp hair. I find that when my hair is straight, I do not need a lot of product to detangle my hair with. When my hair has quite a bit of texture to it, I find that I still do not need to use a lot when I pair this with my moisturizing mist on my roots. I always seal this moisturizer in with olive oil; heavier moisturizer + heavier oil = love for my hair.

Final Thoughts: If you are in the market for a good, heavy moisturizer, I suggest this one. I love this for my hair during the fall/winter time because it makes my hair so soft and I’m able to stretch my hair well into the winter months with this moisturizer. I would recommend this to anyone to try out, but I would not suggest it for people who may not like the cons of this product, or are sensitive to any of the ingredients. Below, I will list the entire ingredients list for those who have not seen it and would like to do their own research on the products. For any other questions you may have, you can also check out Elasta QP’s website. In my opinion, this moisturizer is good for most hair types, but I would steer clear of it if heavy products weigh your hair down, you’re not a fan of heavy products, or you have super oily hair. I find it best for textured hair personally (since I fall into the catergory), but I’m sure other hair types can use this too; just be careful on how much you use.

Ingredients List: Water/Aqua/Eau, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Capric Caprylic Triglycerides, PEG-75 Lanolin, Behentrimonlum Methosulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth 20, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopherol, Ascorbic Acid, Biotin, Linoleic Acid, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Parfum/Fragrance, Imidazolldinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Hydrolyzed Silk, CI 19140 (FD&C Yellow 5).

I hope you all enjoyed this review. If you have any products you would like for me to review, or questions about any products I use, please don’t hesitate to ask me. I hope you all have a great day and I will talk to you all soon! ♥

Winterizing Your Life: Hair

Hey everyone! It’s that time of year again: fall/wintertime. Now I don’t know about where you live, but I know in my hometown, it can get very cold here. All you want to do is sit on your comfy couch or chair, wearing your warm clothing, your toes hidden in cozy socks or slippers and sip hot chocolate. You can’t forget turning the heat on or lighting the wood in the fireplace so that your house or apartment is at a comfortable temperature and you’re in paradise. Sounds like a wonderful fantasy huh? Well, though that is what typically happens in most homes during the colder months, the heat from inside, as well as the cold elements outside can wreck havoc on our hair if we don’t take care of it. I know that for me, the winter time is the hardest my hair gets hit because it feels like my hair doesn’t stay moisturized as I would like. Last year, I learned a lot about taking care of my hair during the wintertime and today, I want to help you guys. Don’t worry; I’m not sending you up the creek without a paddle. I did and will continue to do most of these things myself this winter and my hair didn’t suffer as bad as I thought it would. Just to show you guys the things I did for my hair, I’ll italicize them. The things that are not italicized, are things I plan on doing this cold weather season. Let’s learn together, shall we?
  • First and foremost, stick to a heavier moisturizer. I find that I cannot use my watery leave ins/moisturizers to adequately protect my hair and keep it as moisturized as I would like. I typically like to use a butter like Elasta QP Olive Oil and Mango Butter moisturizer for the wintertime because I feel like it does a better job. You can use shea butter, mango butter, or any other heavy moisturizer you feel will moisturize and protect your hair from the elements.
  • This is optional, but I also liked using a heavier oil on my hair to seal in my moisturizer. My favorite oil to use during this time was olive oil because I felt like it protected my hair better. I used just a little of it throughout the sections of my hair before either braiding or bantu knotting my hair for the night.
  • Protective styling is a must! I don’t know about you guys, but I typically see people wearing weaves during the hotter months than in the winter months. Personally, I feel like if you’re going to wear a weave, the winter is the best time. Not only is your hair going to be protected from the elements underneath, your weave can still add to your appearance. Just make sure you give your hair a BREAK from the weaves, ladies. Weaves add tension to your hair and can lead to breakage, especially if your are putting it in your head over and over again, consecutively. Other helpful protective hairstyles are buns, phony ponies, braids, and wigs. This season, wigs and ponytails will be my best friend!
  • Cover your hair! I know we hear this a lot when we do our hair for sleep, but this is also the case for when we step outside into the harsh wind and cold. Now, the reason I do not have this italicized is because, even though I always cover my hair up at night, I didn’t always do it when I went outside. Sure, I would wear my coat hood over my head or a beanie, but here’s the thing. The materials from your hats can actually dry out your hair and cause it to break. It’s the same thing with always protecting your ends from scarves and your clothes, especially during the winter. If you’ve made up your mind about basically living in beanies and the like (especially for the cold weather where it can get to 40 degrees and lower), then I suggest lining your hats with satin material. This way, you can still wear your hats and keep warm, as well as protect your hair from the friction caused by many hats. If hats aren’t for you (you may like earmuffs or just your coat hood better) then I suggest wearing your satin cap until you get where you are going. You can always take it off once you get into the parking garage of your destination or inside the building. Don’t forget to protect your hair underneath!
  • Condition! I know for me, I conditioned twice a week, after my co-wash or shampoo washes. For the winter time, I always made sure that I deep conditioned with a moisturizing conditioner, save for the day I did my clarifying shampoo wash. For that time, I would use a heavy protein to make sure my hair didn’t get that disgusting mushy feel of over moisturized hair. We want to protect our hair and baby it as much as we can since there is barely any water in the air that our hair could benefit from, unlike in the summer. Down south where I live, I can get away with doing less co-washing (if I wanted to) because there is so much humidity in the air that co-washing multiple times could make my hair overly moisturized. Trust me, your hair will thank you.
  • If you really feel the need to wear your hair out during the colder months, I suggest styling your hair in buns or braids. With buns, the ends of your hair are protected and keeping the ends moisturized and hidden can protect your hair from splits. We all know that ends are the oldest part of our hair, but they are almost the most important. Your length comes from your ends. If you allow splits to travel up the hair strand, it can break your hair off, making it appear thinner and unkempt. If you live in a windy city, tying your hair in a braid can keep your hair in place. The braid is an ideal protective style for me because my hair is free to tangle as the wind blows it to and fro. I suggest making sure your hair is thoroughly moisturized and sealed with oil before choosing either one of these styles. You want to make sure your hair has nourishment, even when you’re wearing it uncovered.
    • A bonus about braids: When you get to your destination and take your hair down, you may have these nice loose waves, depending how tight and big your braid your hair. Not only are your protecting your hair by braiding it, you’re protecting it from heat, which can also damage your hair in ANY season.
  • Try the “Baggy Method.” For my ladies on their relaxed and natural hair journeys, I’m sure you all have heard of this one before. For those that haven’t, the baggy method is when you moisturize and seal your hair like normal before putting on a processing cap and letting it sit on your hair for a few hours or overnight. This is like deep conditioning, except you’re not washing your moisturizer out. I love this method for dry hair because it helps me retain moisture a lot better. I feel like anyone can do this method regardless of hair texture and type. I will caution against doing this every single day though because too much moisture can be a bad thing. If you know your hair, you’ll know how much moisture is too much before it gets that disgusting mushy feeling. Always try to listen to your hair and try out different methods that work well for you.

So there you have it guys! Those are just a few of my tips to helping my hair survive the wintertime. But guess what! We’re not done with this post yet! I’ve decided to make this a little series for the wintertime, so I do not overload this post. There will be three parts: Hair, Beauty, and Clothing. I should have the Beauty post up soon after I research the trends in makeup, nails, etc. I hope you all enjoyed this post. If you have any tips for protecting your hair during the winter, don’t be afraid to put them in the comments so I and everyone else can learn from you. Love you guys! Have a great day!

Winterizing Your Life: New Mini Series

Hey guys! As you know from reading my blog, I am on a relaxed hair care journey. I want to help those who may not know what to do with their hair for the winter, and share my experiences with you all; kind of like a “personal” Internet diary. So, just like my Back to School series, I want to do another mini series to help you prepare for the cooler fall/winter. I want to make a small note that my hair care tips aren’t just for relaxed women like myself. I like giving general tips for all hair types, but I make sure to put an emphasis on my curly & kinky haired women because our hair tends to be drier because our natural sebum does not travel down our hair strands as easily as women with straight hair. I will be talking about that in my hair post that will be coming up soon. I hope you all are having a great day and I will talk to you soon!
