Wash Yo Rizos day! Dark & Lovely Anti-Breakage product review

For the most part, you all know that I LOVE the Dark and Lovely Au Naturale anti-shrinkage line.  So when I found out they were launching the anti-breakage products, I was suppppper excited to try it.  

So here we go -  below is 8 day dirty pelo.

VERDICT:  Thumb Up

Pros 

  • The scent- all of the products have a delightful citrusy fragrance
  • After one wash, my hair felt clean and product buildup free
  • The conditioner was thick in consistency which made it easy for detangling
  • Reasonably priced

Cons

  • My hair felt drier than normal so I had to add more quickie oil after styling
  • The root to tip mender was too thick for my texture of hair (it is fine despite the volume)
  • Significant amount of shrinkage

I really enjoyed trying out the products.  The hair wash definitely lived up to its name - the rizos were definitely squeaky clean. I would use the conditioner consistently because I really liked the slip of it and it was significantly easier to detangle. I can also use it as a deep conditioner as mentioned on the label - Score!  I would have to try using a lesser amount of the root to tip mender so my hair won't feel weighed down.  

I recommend these products.  I have not been disappointed with Dark and Lovely products and the best part is they do not cost a fortune!

Thanks Dark and Lovely!

Hugs,
