Product Review-Hairveda Vatika Frosting

Hey curlies! I wanted to do a quick review of two products. Hairveda’s Vatika Frosting and Gold N Hot  Jet Bonnet Dryer Attachment. I’m just about done with the VF maybe one or two applications left. The dryer attachment I used only once for my first flexi rod set.

The vatika frosting is basically coconut oil infused with ayurvedic herbs (as the jar clearly states). Don’t order this and look for a new miracle oil. Folks I’m keeping it funky here! It’s coconut oil LOL no way around it. Now don’t get me wrong I’m not saying it’s a bad product BUT I want my readers to know what they’re getting into….if you love EVCO you will more than likely enjoy VF. The smell is sooooo darngood!! Everytime I smell this stuff I want to stick my tongue in the jar! (dont judge me). It’s like vanilla cake frosting,sugary goodness 🙂 Anyway back to the review…..when the package FINALLY came in the mail (not the best shipping time btw) I was so pumped!! I order a few other products from Hairveda. Here’s the lowdown…

Price $10.99 8oz.

Ingredients: Pure unrefined coconut oil, amla extract,henna extract, argentinian lemon extract, and fragrance.

Will I repurchase? No

The next product or should I say hair tool, is my blow dryer bonnet attachment. There isn’t too much to say about this. It did what it was supposed to. The downside is that it was hard for all my flexi rods to fit under the bonnet. The hot air did circulate nicely. It’s convenient for those who have limited space or travel a lot. It can also be used for conditioning. I purchased mine from Sally Beauty Supply. I definitely would recommend this product.

Price $11.69 (Beauty club price $10.49)

 

 

Oldie but goodie

Who said the old stuff mama used to put on our hair as little girls doesn’t work anymore??? There are some oldie but goodie products out there. What’s your favorite product from back in tha day?

Tonight while rebraiding my hair for a braidout, I decided to use water with EVOO to help refresh/moisturize my hair. When I wore my hair straight a couple years back EVOO was all I used. Since it’s getting cold here in Michigan (34degrees to be exact) heavier oils and butters are my friends!! I’ve always used castor oil because of the benefits for hair growth. But if I really think about it I never had a problem retaining length then….so I’m going to give EVOO a fair shot for awhile and see how my hair responds! As naturals we get so caught up in the ‘next best thing’ and we forget about the good stuff that worked!

I know some of you are thinking, but the ingredients are horrible! Don’t let yourself get so caught up on the perfect ingredient list that you miss out on what your hair needs! I hope this post was helpful for my new readers! Come back often, I’m trying to post new material on a regualr basis!
