The Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Stronger Hold Gel.

Fresh Wash-n-go with #Ouidad’s Advanced Climate Control Stronger Hold Gel

Before using this gel, I went through the same steps I did in my previous review. These steps are important when it comes to maximizing the benefits of this line.

#CoilySue86 Fresh Wash-n-go & #Ouidad Stronger Hold Gel

This gel does have a stronger hold. It dries faster though. I kept having to add a little water to my fingers while separating my hair. However, it doesn’t leave my hair crunchy or flaky. It adds shine and enhances the definition of my coily hair.

The hold does last a couple days. As I type this, it’s been two days since I’ve applied this gel. It’s gotten softer, but the frizz hasn’t formed. My coils are still collected.

The Advanced Climate Control Restore + Revive Bi-Phase Spray.

Restore + Revive Bi-Phase Spray

This spray is a mix of pink-colored oils and a clear liquid. You have to shake it a little before spraying to get the benefits of this spray.

Revived Coils with #Ouidad’s Restore + Revive Bi-Phase Spray

I used this spray the next day after taking off my bonnet. My hair was smashed down, basically having helmet hair.

It added moisture to my hair and allowed my coils to spring back up. Of course, I had to use my hands a little but the curl definition wasn’t disturbed. The water in the spray did not reverse the hold of the gel that was previously applied. Which, that was something that I was afraid would happen.

My hair after the gym two days later.

My coils are still frizz-free-ish. I Say free-ish because you know… Natural Hair rebellion. 😆

Y’all!

This photo had me shook, though because I was in the gym sweating two hours ago and my hair still has definition!

Final Thoughts:

I really like this line for my wash-n-gos. The Advanced Climate Control line makes it easier to keep a wash-n-go.

These two new products will go on presale April 3, 2018.

SoCozy specializes in quality hair care products for kids and they’ve sent my products to review for you all. They also told me to tell you that they are hosting a #SplashHappy Vacation Sweep for a family vacation all on them! Keep reading all the way to the bottom for more info on how to enter.

The Sweet Creme Shampoo:

Vasel, his Afro, & SoCozy Shampoo.

“A gentle curl cleanser that removes dirt and buildup while reinforcing and preserving curls’ natural moisture balance.” – SoCozy

Did it do what they said it would?

Yes! The shampoo was really gentle on his hair. It gave his scalp and hair a very rich lather and it rinsed away very well from his hair. It didn’t leave his coily hair feeling overly cleansed or squeaky clean or even a weird residue. It didn’t even dry out his scalp. Which is always a concern, especially during the winter months.

The Sweet Creme Conditioner:

Vasel, his Afro, & SoCozy Conditioner.

“An ultra-hydrating formula that conditions without weighing curls down and easily detangles to prevent breakage and frizz.” – SoCozy

Well, is it ultra hydrating? Does it prevent breakage?

Yep! This is the thickest, creamiest, and most slippery conditioner that I have ever found to work for his hair. I’m not sure if I’ll come across another product that works as well as this, but this stuff is legit! I can easily finger detangle or detangle with a comb with this conditioner. It takes a little while to rinse it all out, but you can still feel a protective layer of conditioner on his hair after rinsing. And it’s very hard to find conditioners that feel like they are still there doing their job.

The Sweet Pea Leave-In Conditioner:

vasel-so-cozy-leave-in
Vasel, his Afro, & SoCozy Leave-In Conditioner.

“A multi-purpose leave-in conditioner that repairs curls and infuses them with much needed moisture while preventing frizz.” -SoCozy

Does it repair the curls, Ebony? Did it prevent the frizz? Inquiring minds…

I don’t know about “repairing curls”. However, I did use it after washing and as a refresher. So, it is multi-purpose.

This is a light leave-in conditioner. It is runny. However, you can still feel the conditioner left in his hair after it dries. I sprayed some on his hair prior to getting out of the shower and I did have to apply more to his hair after his hair had dried. I also applied some to his hair prior to putting it in a protective style before bed. It is very hydrating and it did >>reduce<< the frizz.

If I were to give the SoCozy Boing Curl line a star-rating, it would be five stars out of five stars. I’m going to tell you why.

  1. I am elated to finally have found products that really work for his hair. It’s been a real struggle, even with products that cater mostly to natural hair.
  2. The brand really does give attention to the fact that children have specific needs to their different hair types.
  3. The products helped to create a couple of the most tear-free wash days we’ve ever had.

Anti-Dandruff Hot Oil Mix | Fall & Winter Hair Care.

hot-oil-mix-thumbnail

Just in time for the fall and winter season, is this hydrating and soothing hot oil mix. The ingredients included in this mix help to fight against dryness and dullness of the hair, and fight against an itchy, flaky, scalp.

You will need:

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oilolive-oil
  • 1 or 2 dropper full of Vitamin E Oil
  • 2 flaxseed oil capsules (2 teaspoons of flaxseed oil)
  • 8 to 10 drops of Peppermint Oil
    Flaxseed Oil.jpgTea Tree Oil.jpg
  • 8 to 10 drops of Tea Tree Oil
  • A heat resistant bowl, cup, or bottle.

Combine all the ingredients in your bowl, cup, or heat resistant bottle.
If you aren’t  going to use this right away or you have some left over, refrigerate the remaining oils because flaxseed oil can spoil.

Leave me a comment below on the video to let me know if this mix works for you.
