Today I am going back to my roots(literally) and writing a review on some new hair products I have added to my regimen. As a curly girl my hair needs a lot of love & affection. Some days my hair is like the Sahara Desert it craves moisture I hate washing my hair, as most curlies do, even more so I hate running a brush through it. People are always amazed when I tell them things like I haven't washed my hair in three days or that I don't like to use shampoo. Some people just don't understand that curly hair is like a fragile animal it doesn't take much to anger it.
No you can't touch my hair. No I did not stick my finger into a socket. Yes my hair naturally looks this way, who would intentionally walk outside looking like a lion set loose from a zoo?
I get so excited when a brand has a line just for curly hair, like Novex does. Sometimes those products that claim "for all hair types" just don't fit the bill.
NOVEX MY CURLS
RELEASE YOUR CURLS - "Curly hair needs a lot of moisture, so Novex mixed 7 nutri functional oils in one product, Olive, Argan, Ojon, Monoi, Coconut, Shea Butter and Moringa. This special mix of oils will bring the curls more hydration, nutrition, a powerful anti-frizz action and a spectacular shine. Cranberry, a small but powerful fruit, also helps shape the curls perfectly while maintaining shine."
Novex My Curls Shampoo 10oz - This is probably my least favorite product in the line. Novex My Curls shampoo has a salon like scent, I don't mean that in a bad way. I'm just more used to the scents of products like SheaMoisture & Kinky Curly. The smell of this reminds me of when I go to the hair salon to have my hair straightened. With the exception of one salon I've ever been to their products all smell kind of the same. If your from Brooklyn, His & Hers salon in Sunset Park their shampoo always smelt like cherries to me.
I should get back into the review right? I am a huge fan of the No poo method. Most shampoos leave my hair feeling dry as a desert. Unfortunately Novex My Curls shampoo does the same thing. After shampooing my hair it felt like a Brillo pad, I've never been so nervous at even the thought of running my fingers through my hair.
I know its not the best thing to do but I always comb the kinks in the shower so I don't cut my fingers! So after my little routine I took my tangle teaser to my hair, I was expecting it to hurt. Normally when my hair feels so dry the knots get pulled, my arm gets tired. Novex My Curls Conditioner managed to fix the feeling of dry brittle hair I had after the shampoo. My tangle teaser slid through my hair easily! I had no real knots that were to comb through.
Novex My Curls Shampoo & Conditioner get 3 1/2 Kinks, if the shampoo didn't leave my hair so dry I would give it 4.
