4. Rinsed for 20 seconds, then detangled under running shower stream as I rinsed all of the product from my hair; tee shirt dried; blow-dried
So many CONS… where do I start? **Tilts head to think**
I placed a sizable order with Curl Mart, and Miss Jessie’s Super Sweet Back Treatment was among the bunch. It was also the first I pulled from the packing peanuts and I was shocked and upset! I looked as if someone stole my lunch money! ? By Jesus it was the size of a golf ball and the purchase price was $9. The pricing is ridiculous and for that reason alone I will not re-purchase unless it is severely discounted.
Second, this conditioner has the most obnoxious bubble gum scent ever! I’m telling you it smells like some sort of mutated, evil elixir from The Wonka Factory. I spent days thinking of how I could mask the scent, but felt I should use it full-strength the first go ‘round.
I applied it to my wet hair after shampooing, applying half of the amount to the ends and the remained to the length and scalp. I then finger combed my hair, put on a gold foil cap, and went under the standing hair dryer for 30 minutes. The directions only call for 30 minutes, but I decided to also use heat.
After the 30 minutes I rinsed the conditioner in could feel some slip. This was notable because the shampoo bar I used left my hair rather stripped feeling. It also felt moisturized and detangled easily, but no more than my usual deep conditioner. I then detangled under thee running shower stream while rinsing the rest of the product.
PROS: I blow dried my hair without adding any additional oils or creams and my six flat twists looked great, but I did, however, add a bit of grape seed oil and a pinch of Salerm 21 for good measure.
All in all if this product were half the price and had a much lighter and better choice of fragrance I would repurchase. If the product remains the same, however, I’ll have to catch it on the clearance rack or throw up the deuces!
