Product Review: Design Essentials Hydrience Argan Moisturizing Creme

Design Essentials Moisturizing Creme

I was sent this lovely product a while ago and I decided not to rush myself to post a review, because I wanted to make sure I used the product thoroughly before posting a review.I have about a few good squeezes of this product left, so yeah I’ve pretty much used the entire tube. To wrap it up in one phrase. I love this product!! Unlike most moisturizers it’s not heavy and I absolutely love that about this product. It adds instant moisture and shine to my hair and it doesn’t weigh it down. That was most important to me when using this product, because when I want to wear my hair down and in s simple style I don’t want it to be weighted down or greasy.  The product smells absolutely amazing and not at all over bearing. Most scented products can cause a odd smell after a few days of use, that was not the case with this product.

I recently color treated my hair with permanent hair dye, and I must say this has helped to save my hair (adding daily moisture) along with deep conditioning weekly. Considering the weather is attempting to change to colder days, your hair will change as well. Colder days are going to lead to dryer hair strands. Therefore using a good hair moisturizer or keeping your hair moisturized is important and crucial. If you’ve ever wondered why your hair sheds or tends to break more during the winter months, this is why. Change in climate. Adding this product to your daily routine can help to alleviate and minimize hair breakage and shedding during the winter months.

    HPOW: Optimum Care 6-N-1 Miracle Hair Oil

    Optimum Hair oil


    Hello Blog Lovers!! I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday!! I know I did, I’m still recovering from the Turkey and Dressing. This weeks Hair Product of the Week is the Optimum 6-N-1 Miracle Hair Oil. I discovered this product when I first purchased theDeep Conditioning Hair Masque which is a new product that is featured with their Salon Collection product line . It wasn’t until I saw the commercial for this product on Youtube (yeah I’m influenced by catchy cute commercials,but who isn’t?) that I decided to purchase this hair oil the next time I went shopping.

    I know when you think of hair oil, the first thing you think of is heavy, weighted down, lifeless hair. This hair usually looks extremely oily and can be annoying especially if you want to light flowing hair. I was scared to use this product because I didn’t want oily hair. My scalp produces enough on it’s own. I tried the moisturizing and sealing technique before and after a week of oily hair of course I stopped. I made up my mind to never attempt to put oil on my hair point blank period.

    This hair oil can be used for six different things and contains six different natural oils. It’s light weight and doesn’t weigh your hair down and won’t make you feel as if you need to shampoo every three days. This 6-n-1 miracle hair oil contains Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Apricot Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Avocado Oil. It can be applied to the hair, scalp, and skin. This product can be used as a hot oil treatment  daily leave-in conditioner, moisturizing scalp oil, braid, loc, and extension conditioner, all day frizz controller, and dry skin hydrator.

    Stats: 
    Here are a few ways that you can use this product via the Optimum Product Website
    A HOT OIL TREATMENT:
    •   In a small container pour ¼ cup of Optimum Salon Hair Care 6-in-1 Miracle Oil.
    •  Sit container in hot water for a few minutes to heat up oil.
    •  Part hair into 4 sections and apply oil to scalp and massage into hair and scalp.
    •  For brittle ends, apply more of the Optimum Salon Hair Care 6-in-1 Miracle Oil to ends of hair and massage into hair well.
    •  Let oil remain on hair for 10-15 minutes and then shampoo out with a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
    • Style as usual.

    A DAILY LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER:
    • Style as usual, then…
    • Place pea size amount of Optimum Salon Hair Care 6-in-1 Miracle Oil in hands and rub together to distribute evenly.
    • On natural hair or curly styles, scrunch oil into curls to add definition to curls and leave them conditioned.
    • On straight hair, use hands like a flat iron and smooth oil into hair for smooth, soft, touchable hair.

    A MOISTURIZING SCALP OIL:
    • Part hair into 4 sections.
    • Apply small amount of Optimum Salon Hair Care 6-in-1 Miracle Oil with fingertip or cue tip to scalp.
    •  Sub-divide each section into inch-wide sections and apply oil to scalp.
    •  Continue working through each section until complete.
    Massage into scalp.
    • Style as usual.
    How I Use This Product
    I use this product in my deep conditioner. I simply add to it and mix this in with my hair conditioner, then I rinse it out. My hair isn’t greasy or weighed down. It almost looks as if their wasn’t a drop of oil added to my hair. I also apply this to my hair every other day when I’m wearing my hair in curls. When I apply to my hair I use a small amount and rub it through my hair from root to tip. It adds just enough shine and pizazz to my hair. I believe the reason why I love this oil is because it’s not heavy. We have all found a product or used a product that advertised that it was lightweight and it ended up being everything but lightweight.  Give it a try. It retails for about $9 and I purchased it at my local dollar store. You can find it at any Drug Store or large retailer such as Target or Wal-mart.

    Hair Product of the Week: Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque

     Hello Blog lovers!! I would like to say WELCOME to all of my new followers! To close out November (forgive my lack of posting, blame it on school) I would like to share with you guys another one of my favorite Shea Moisture products. I have been using this religiously since I purchased it and I can honestly say I LOVE IT. My hair loves it more!! This weeks HPOW is the Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque (with sea kelp, Argan oil, and Shea butter). I purchased this product along with the Shea Moisture Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo from Target for $10.  Check out the stats below:

    Stats


     It smells great and it’s affordable. It contains No Parabens, No phtalates, No Paraffin, No Gluten, No Propylene Glycol, No Mineral Oil, No Synthetic Fragrance, No PABA, No Synthetic color, NO DEA, No Animal Ingredients, and most of all NO SULFATES!!  It does however contain some all natural organic ingredients such as Shea Butter, Sea Kelp, and my favorite Argan Oil! It’s purely organic and I have used it every single time I shampoo my hair (since purchasing it) and I love it!  I combine this conditioner with my Creme of Nature Argan Oil Conditioner (applying it first) and then I apply the Deep Treatment Masque, covering the entire head; apply my plastic bag and leave it on for as long as I desire to do so.  The directions suggest5-30 minutes then rinse. This conditioner can also be used as a frizz free moisturizing styling creme. I will definitely be repurchasing this product (once I run completely out) and continuing to use it on my hair.  This conditioner  alone will heal, grow, and strengthen the hair and leave it manageable and soft.

    HPOW: Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo

    Hello Blog Lovers!! This weeks Hair Product of the Week is the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo. Since my last post about the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Intensive Conditioning Treatment
    which was posted in January, Creme of Nature has extended the Argan Oil product line by offering seven new products. Those products include the Gloss and Shine Polisher, Moisture and Shine Shampoo, Oil Treatment, Oil Moisturizer, Strength and Shine Leave in Conditioner, and the Intensive Conditioning Treatment is now offered in a 12 oz. bottle.

    What is it??

    The Moisture and Shine Shampoo is a sulfate free shampoo that nourishes and adds brilliant shine, while gently cleansing and detangling. It strengthens the hair while optimizing the moisture balance of the hair and scalp.

     Product Benefits
    • Gently cleanses hair without harsh, moisture stripping agents
    • Strengthens hair while optimizing the moisture balance of the hair and scalp
    • Helps to detangle, soften and boost shine
    • Infused with Certified Organic Argan Oil from Morocco

    Initial Reaction/Thoughts

    I have used this shampoo a few times. I do like it. I am not quite ready to inform you to let you know how I really truly feel about it (Review soon). However, I will say that in my opinion it smells like any other creme of nature shampoo. They have a fragrance that is distinctive to let you know that it is a creme of nature shampoo. I cant really describe it per say but if you have used their shampoos in the past then you are familiar with the fragrance. Its not bad so don’t get me wrong, comparing the scent to the One n’ Only Argan Oil sulfate free shampoo and all of my other Argan Oil products I will say this shampoo has a faint smell of Argan Oil in it. Despite the smell the shampoo does perform like it says that it would.  Everyone should know I love smell good products. I just noticed that it didn’t smell as fragrant as the conditioner and the One n’ Only Argan Oil Shampoo.

    >HPOW: One ‘n Only Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner

    >Hello Blog Lovers!! I know it’s been a while since my last HPOW post because I was wanting to post a lot of my YT videos (Be on the look out for more videos in the future) however we are back in business. I have been trying some new products and I have some reviews I want to share along with some of my favorite products.   This weeks HPOW (Hair Product of the Week) is the One n’ Only Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.  Recently I posted up some facts about Argan Oil and the great benefits and since I was on an Argan Oil frenzy I saw this shampoo in Sally’s Beauty Supply  and I just had to try it! It was cold at the time and I knew that I wanted/needed to try a new moisturizing shampoo because the dry air was affecting my hair. Moisturizing shampoos are excellent for the winter months to keep the hair from drying out due to the lack of moisture in the air outside. So I picked this product up because it was on sale and also because it was Sulfate Free Shampoo. I stated in my Shampoos and Sulfates posting that I wanted to try a Sulfate Free Shampoo, so when I saw this it was like a 2 for 1 deal (sulfate free shampoo and argan oil JACKPOT). I was ecstatic!! Couldn’t wait to get home!! Check out the stats below on this HPOW and be on the look out for my review and thoughts about using a Sulfate Free Shampoo. So far I love this product!!!

    One ‘n Only® Argan Oil Moisture Repair Conditioner
