To Leave In or Not To Leave In – Review -Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle

9 Jul

The Review -Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle is only available through Birchbox.


The full size product is $21.95 for 8 oz of product.

Why I like the Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle

It smells divine.  Truly fantastic.  It’s almost worth buying for the scent alone.  I wish it lingered longer, that’s how pretty this smells.  It smells pretty….like hair perfume.

It does protect your hair from heat styling.  I actually felt this worked better when I heat styled my hair.  It was shinier and softer when blown dry, curled, or straightened.

I swear that my hair sustained less styling damage when I was using Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle.

Where it fell short

I wish it was better for frizz control.

I will admit, that I do have a light hand when I apply leave ins because I’m afraid they will weigh my hair down.

I read some reviews in which the girls said they applied this generously and their frizzies were tamed. So maybe this was user error.  Also, the sample bottle from Birchbox was the ultimate suck.  It stopped working at some point and I had to dig for product with my finger and then work it in.  So yeah, I’m sure that impacted how it actually worked.

There are no other cons to the Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle.

Would I repurchase?

Probably.  I will going to buy the It’s a 10 Leave In next, but I will probably end up buying Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle as well.

Have you tried it?  Do you love it?



Aquage – gonna give these a try

5 Jun

I just got back from getting my hair cut – just a trim as I’m trying to grow this mane out.

My stylist recommend these two products for me:


“Look at my sweet Jeggings!”

Aquage Beyond Body Thermal Spray is like a 3 in one dealy – its protects against heat, makes your hair shinny and acts like a hairspray.  It also makes your hair look and even feel thicker.  It’s awesome for waves!  I only just used it today so I really don’t feel confident to review it just yet (stay tuned for that)  but you can read other people’s reviews HERE.

Aquage Silkening Oil Treatment is for before you blow-dry your hair.  It helps protect against frizz but also speeds up your blow-dry time so you do less damage AND it protects your color.  AMAZING.  I call it the Magic Sauce.  I have only just used it today but here are other people’s reviews on MakeUp Alley.

I will get back to you guys on my experiences with these products.  I do like the way they smell – just like natural clean smells and kind of oceanie.  You can find them by using their Salon Locator.  Only indie salons carry it, so you can’t find it at Ulta.

Here is what my hair looks like so you can get an idea of how these products work for curls.


btw- I go to Orbit Salon in Wicker Park to my homegirl Samantha.
