      @atribitt For future reference, if I do not name a leave-in, you can assume the other product was my leave-in. I only did Smoothie + Styler, and used the Curl Keeper mentioned yesterday but I do not think the finisher is integral to the styling routine.

    • zRibzyMitzy7

      Yeees. That masque did nothing for me and I got the same results. I love the Curl Enhancing Smoothie, though. I find I get better results when I used it damp with Cantu Shea butter(I know, I know you’re supposed to use a cone on top, right?).

      I’m torn, I’ve been using the Shea moisture products (CE Smoothie & Restorative Mask) for about a year now. I do love the moisture that they provide but my split ends are driving me BATTY!! I’m not sure if it’s the products causing them or what. I trim so often, it’s ridiculous. Woe is me 🙁 anyhoo, you mentioned soy bean oil, would you say using products w/ it is a drawback? Great review as always.

    • denimpixie

      @staras00 I don’t think it’s a drawback, it’s just a cheaper oil so it doesn’t impress me much. How are you detangling? That’s a huge factor when it comes to splits.

    • staras00

      @denimpixie 4 detangling I mostly use a wide toothed comb; tip 2 root. I used the tangle teezer 4 or 5 times back in Feb/March but chucked it. I felt like it was ripping out my hair. I used the Mason Pearson brush about 2-3 times but had that setback w/ the fibers coming out (btw, seller sent a replacement for free 🙂 But I haven’t used the replacement yet. Now I’m back to the wide toothed comb. My hair is kinky but not too dense so the comb works if my hair is a little damp or w/leave in

      i feel the same way about the deep treatment masque. it doesnt absorb going on and when i wash it out it feels extremely coated & rough. thought i was the only one.

    • denimpixie

      @Timberly09 Yea it’s just blaaah on my hair. I have a friend who likes it, I gave it to her!

    • louloumatou

      ahhh you just gave me a great combo idea: curly whip + CES, gonna try that tomorrow! i really like the shea moisture stuff , my fav being the curl and style milk. the deep treatment works best for me as a leave-in than a DC. Great reviews!

    • ChaoticCurlz

      i definitely want to try the smoothie, been wanting to for a while now….also, i need a leave-in, and a moisturizing shampoo, you kno, one that doesn’t give the “hay hair” affect….i’ll try pretty much anyhting as long as it’s worked for at least one person with curly hair, LOL, ok so maybe not 1 but 4 or 5, lol. I think i’m about a 3c w/ a bit of 3b at the top of my head….i could be wrong tho, resembles your hair…what shampoo & leave-ins should I try?

    • denimpixie

      @ChaoticCurlz Did you check the HG list on the blog? My leave-ins are listed there by glycerin vs. non-glycerin, which is beneficial for people to pick products depending on their climate. The only shampoo I use is Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture & Shine.

    • Titus2Chic

      the reviews i’ve seen on the deep treatment mask were all the same, exactly as you stated … leaves the hair feeling rough.

    • afrikahchick

      i really need to try shea moisture products!!! i want to try that african black soap line because i have dry itchy scalp. 🙁 ur vids are so imformative. keep up the great work!! 🙂

    • AfroMohawkable

      The restorative line works for me, maybe because I have a kinky pattern. I always compared the smell to an organic chemical cake batter :O ummm yes! lol

    • denimpixie

      @TRUEFREAKLEzz Yes I used to make it all the time but started using my pan to cook, lol. I love it, just haven’t bought a new pan (lazy).

      Great review. I’m totally with you on that Deep Treatment Mask. Ughhh, my hair did not like it at all either. Was wayyy too thick and made my hair feel rough as well…going on and after rinsing. The curl enhancing smoothie is prob the best out of that line. It does make the hair soft but for some reason, it just sits on my hair. My hair is not a fan of shea butter I’ve learned (after many attempts of using it) LOL.

    • MsParkersmile4me

      Darn! I got the wrong one. I bought the mask. Thanks for the review ……. I guess I’m going back to target 🙁

    • Tip2datop

      My hair loved the deep treatment mask. It left it feeling very soft and smelling good. I like how your reviews are very truthful. : )

    • denimpixie

      @TRUEFREAKLEzz Not specifically for hair products. I don’t use the same pans I cook with, and I don’t make enough of my own stuff.


      @denimpixie oh u dont???? REALLY?!!! WHY? oh and btw i absolutely luved this one video wen u were putting the products in ur short hair and it was all healthy and curly it was so AMAZING!!!!!!!! i just cant get over that feeling of healthy hair

    • AlejandraPrincess

      I really didn’t care for the Curl Enhancing Smoothie or the Deep Treatment Mask. Didn’t get the hype. But I did like the Curl & Style Milk. Gave me so much slip and made my hair incredibly soft. But your hair does look amazing!

    • unelson

      Love this style on u and I love the hair smoothie, I love wearing poofs and now I’m gonna have to find a fly scarf to accent my poof after being inspired by urs!!! 🙂
