I received the Nourishing Shampoo, Reconstructive Conditioner, & Leave-In Conditioner 8 weeks ago. This review has taken a little time to complete because I typically wash my hair every 6 weeks ( co wash in between ). For this review I used the shampoo to wash my hair 3x’s, the conditioner 8 times ( co wash), the leave in multiple times per week. I wanted to be as objective as possible and have a couple of washing before providing my review. I love these products! Immediately after washing my hair ( I did not pre poo like I normally would when using commerical shampoo’s), my hair was left soft ( not stripped or dry like it normally feels after using commerical shampoo’s). I noticed less frizz (with my wash n go’s); my scalp didn’t feel tight or itchy( another issue I have when I used commerical shampoo’s). The conditioner provided the right amount of slip to make detangling a breeze, and it was easy to coat the strands (a little goes a long way!).

Picture-3 strand Twist Out

The light fragrance was a plus and the conditioner + leave in during my co wash sessions left my curls feeling moisturized, very manageable and bouncy. Using this product when I did 3 strand twist outs left my hair with body and assisted with that “Cotton Candy Hair” look. Read the ingredient label(s) if you are particular about the bad stuff ( silicone’s, mineral oil, etc), these products may not be for you. My hair loved the products and i will keep a supply on hand. You can purchase the products at walgreens, walgreens.com, or at nuNATT.com

Disclosure: Complimentary products was provided for this review, however, all opinion(s) expressed are my own. I was not compensated in any other way.

Goody Spin Pin


I keep seeing the commerical the Spin Pin and I’m so courteous. Now in the commercial I saw one AA female with thicker hair, but it was straight. I’m wondering if this will work on us with natural thick hair when it’s not straightened… what about loc’s, sisterlocs, or braided updo’s(ummmmmm… *baffled*). I love the fact that you can use it and it is like using 20 bobby pins. I hate using bobby pins,they hurt my scalp…so this would be super helpful. You can get the entire set below for 14.99 plus shipping and handling. I’m only interested in the spin pin. They sell them individually at CVS, Target and Walgreens. I’m confused at how it would work…I’m pretty sure it would get stuck in my loc’d hair. Have any of you tried this??
