So some of you all may know that I got pretty lucky with the this month’s Winter Wonderland Giveaway Hop. I won three different hair kits. One of those kits I won was Natural Hair Nutrients from Precious Curls. While it was not requested by the company or Precious to do I review, I thought that it would be the only right thing to do. So stay tuned as I will have two more reviews to do.
Anyways to start the review, let me show you what I received.
Aloe Vera Leave In Conditioner
Olive Oil Shampoo
Hair and Body Butter
Since the package I received did not come with instructions on how to use the products, I first visited the Natural Hair Nutrients website for instructions. Unfortunately, there was not any information on how to use the product so I had to ‘wing’ it. And I opted not to use the products, that I was not sure how to use or if I questions what it was.
So first I started with the Olive Oil Shampoo. The ingredients in the shampoo are castile soap, purified water, olive oil, xanthan gum. The smell is little peculiar, it was a smell that I have smelled before but I could quite point my finger on what it was. When I used it on my hair I was a little disappointed because there wasn’t a lather. I am definitely the type of person who likes to see the suds to know its working. (By the way, I used almost the whole bottle trying to get some suds.) After washing my hair, it felt really stripped, like it got ALL the previous week’s product out of my hair.
Then it was on to the Jojoba conditioner. The ingredients are rose flower water, jojoba oil, vitamin E oil, and xanthan gum. I really liked the conditioner. The consistency was pretty thick and provided just enough ‘slip’ when I was detangling my hair with my wide tooth comb. I let the conditioner sit in my hair for about 5 minutes before I washed it out. After I washed the conditioner out of my hair it felt very soft. The only thing I didn’t like was that my curls didn’t pop as much as it normally does with my typical products.
Next, the Aloe Vera Leave In Conditioner. This product actually had instructions taped on the back explaining how to use the product. The ingredients in this product is aloe vera juice, aloe vera gel, rosemary oil, lemon grass oil, jojoba oil, glycerin, purified water, and xanthan gum. The smell of the spray was very pleasant, but the consistency was way to thin. It was almost like spraying water in my hair. I really use to using leave in conditioners that are creamy. I felt that this product would work much better as a refreshing spray than a leave in conditioner.
Now it was on to styling. I used the hair and body butter to moisturize my hair. I used the product in the small jar that I assumed was a styling aid to style my hair. I put my hair in all flat twist for a flat twist out the next day.
And here is the next day twist out:
To be honest, I was not all that impressed with the twist out. My hair looked and felt a little dry. I sprayed my hair with the Moisturizing Mist, but that didn’t seem to help. I was hoping that I would exclusively use the N.H.N line, but I ended up applying some coconut oil to my hair to help moisturize it!
My overall opinion:
The products were just okay in my hair. The shampoo and conditioner worked great, but the styling aids were lacking. The definition and moisture that I am use to were not there. I have know some others to have amazing results with the products, but unfortunately I don’t feel the same. Possibly I can give the products another test run after I review my other products. And hopefully to get some clarity on the uses of some of the products.
