Wash and Go routine: New Hydra Steam Moisturizing System by SoftSheen-Carson

Hey guys,

This is my first "How To" video!  I finally got the courage to stand in front of the camera to record my wash and go routine. Woooo Hooooo!

The awesome team of SoftSheen-Carson sent me the New Hydra Steam Moisturizing System, exclusively designed for use with steam treatments, which I try to do every time I wash my hair.  Infused with aloe vera, the system promotes frizz control and curl definition plus provides vital moisture to dry hair.  I really needed all the help I could get.  My hair has been really unmanageable because of this cold winter weather and my traveling schedule has not helped either.  Well, you'll see...

I hope you all enjoy my routine.  Feel free to leave comments and ask questions.



VERDICT:  I looooved the way it made my hair feel!  My hair felt super soft with minimal shrinkage and the scent is light and pleasant.

I totally RECOMMEND the Hydra Steam Moisturizing System!

Products I used:

Hydra Steam sulfate-free cleanser

Hydra Steam masque

Hydra Steam curl designing cream

Hydra Steam finishing oil

EcoStyler gel (max hold)

Tropic Isle Living Jamaican black castor oil

Camille Rose Product Review - Curl Maker

Hey guys!  

I know it has been a reaaally long time since I have posted anything hair related (Sorry!) But I'm back at it.  Take a look as I tried Camille Rose's Curl Maker.




My hair looks exactly how it feels - DRY.  This is three day hair.




What a difference!  

I'm going to be honest with you all, I was nervous to use this product because I was not used to the texture and the consistency of it.  Also, the thought of having to rewash my hair stressed me out BUT it proved me wrong! Camille Rose Curlmaker made my hair feel great.  These pictures actually do it no justice because the biggest difference I noticed was that my hair was very soft and well defined. Oh I almost forgot, the scent is light and very pleasant.

So my verdict is: TWO Thumbs up!
