Did I tell you gals (and the few guys that read Clumps) that I chopped off like 6 inches of my hair a few weeks ago? Yah. I’ve been itchin’ to do it for about a year now and I finally took the plunge. My friends aren’t even surprised at this anymore. They were all like, “Oh, you cut your hair off? Again? Cool.” I’ve done huge chops THREE times. It ain’t a big deal but it’s necessary. I love going from long hair to short hair in seconds. It’s so euphoric.
And let’s face it, nooooobody has time to be bothered with hurr when I’ve got to get me and Baby Clumps out of the door in the morning for work and daycare. Naw. Hair is basically a luxury. And since I have shorter and less complicated hair, I’ve been able to play around with more products. Through Glam Media I was sent these 2 kiddos…
Okay, so I knew Pantene had a natural hair line but I didn’t know that the Clarifying Shampoo was paraben-free. Um, wow! That’s a huge deal.
I was actually a fan of both the shampoo and conditioner. I used both of them continuously for a week and here’s what I thought…
The Clarifying Shampoo
I NEED a clarifying shampoo. Whether I’m rockin’ locs or the short fro, my hair tends to really hold on to product. This is good for styling but when it’s time to wash my hair, I want it to be super clean. And not in a stripped kind of way. This clarifying lotion was really effective at not only cleansing my scalp and hair but keeping that moisture in too. After rinsing, I didn’t didn’t feel like my hair was crunchy! And trust me, finding a clarifying lotion that isn’t crunchy is beyond difficult.
The Deep Conditioner
As far as deep conditioners go, I don’t have too many requirements. I just like for them to leave my hair moisturized and soft. In fact, I’m a big fan of co-washing and could easily use a deep conditioner a few times a week. This one works nicely for me. It doesn’t weigh down the fro and I’ve actually been using it as a leave-in conditioner. It’s niiiice!
Good products = a happy fro.
