Hair feels stronger too and ever so light. Plus my husband loves the smell and kept complimenting how my hair looked; he thought I had been to a salon to get my hair done’ • ‘The scalp treatment was efficient and made my hair feel very soft and when my scalp was flaky – I have an intermittent problem - the treatment did a very good but gentle job of clearing the problem. Great for a pampering session and giving your hair a little make-over’ • ‘My head felt like it lost weight when I first used it. I have been colouring, bleaching, perming and all sorts from the age of 15 and am now 42, so some sort of magic happened on first application! Conditioner is also cooling to the head and completes the whole detox. My hair is cleaner for longer now. No flakes or oiliness to be seen. I love the way my hair looks and feels since using this!’

This blow-dryer is made to specifically minimize frizz for curly, wavy, and coily hair types with moisture-replenishing ionic technology. Its large diffuser head cups thick hair and gets close to the root to evenly distribute a delicate flow of low heat. In case your hands are full, the blow-dryer also comes with a hands-free stand to dry your hair without laying a single finger on the dryer.” - Allure

“If your bathroom is overflowing with curly-hair products, it’s time to transition to this three-in-one product (consider it the antithesis to a three-in-one body wash/shampoo/conditioner—*shudders*). This conditioner is technically a rinse-out conditioner, but thanks to its oil-based formula (see: castor oil, shea butter, and jojoba oil), it can also be used as a deep conditioner or as a leave-in conditioner. So even if you’re not sure if your porosity or curl type can handle it as a leave-in, you’ll still be safe to use it as a rinse-out formula. Win-win, tbh.” – Cosmopolitan
