It's expensive, the ingredients aren't all wholesome and natural (hello, polyquats, silicones, and artificial fragrance), and it most certainly wasn't designed with natural hair in mind. But IT WORKS.

Description of your hair: My hair is generally medium density with coarse texture and normal porosity, "O" texture and is thready, but I have many textures on my head, from L-shaped spongy on the infamous "patch", to S-shaped at the nape of my neck.
Kinks & Curls's insight:

My relaxed hair love Aphogee products! But I was hesitant to use these products on my natural hair because of some of the ingredients and I wasn't sure how it would react to the protein. It works! More to come when I write my review.

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) baby shampoo contains an ingredient that might give parents pause: formaldehyde. Deemed a “probable human carcinogen” by the U.S.
Kinks & Curls's insight:

Wow! There is formaldehyde is Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo? I never would have thought a product that's supposed to be "so gentle" would have such a dubious ingredient.

Relaxed Hair Health: The one product everyone should have in their ... | Product Junkie | Scoop.it

I'm writing this post as public service announcement to everyone I know.  I don't want to be the cause of people going out and buying more product, but I still feel obligated to share this message, especially after an interesting Facebook exchange I had this week.

The product I'm talking about is It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In.  I've written about this product a couple of times before but I don't think I've truly expressed how import it is to me.  It all started when I saw a video of Tia Williams proclaiming her adoration for It's a 10 after it melted away her tangles.  So I went out and got it.  What I LOVE about this product is that it does it's job.  I bought it for one reason and one reason only, to deal with my tangles.  And that it does.

Kinks & Curls's insight:

Haven't tried this product but I've read tons of positive reviews for it.

Product Review: Hi Pro Pac Extremely Damaged Hair Intensive Protein Treatment | Product Junkie | Scoop.it
I think I heat damaged my hair. Since I went natural I’ve only blown it dry twice and used a flat iron once. My ends were a lot drier than prior to the heat even downright crispy.

Kinks & Curls's insight:

Much like dry shampoo I stay away from 2 in 1 shampoo's. I just believe my coarse strands need a real or seperate conditioning treatment. The only shampoo I used without conditioner was Creme of Nature's old formula moisturizing detangling conditioning shampoo. That stuff was awesome for my relaxed hair. But of course they go and create a whole new formula.
