Dark and Lovely Au-Naturale-Anti-Breakage Super Softening Hair Butter: Product Review!

Hey Curlies! ❤

dnl

Here for another product review!

I won on a contest on Instragram from Dark and Lovely and Fro Girl Jinny, and this happened to be one out of the two that I won. Now! I’m going to be very honest…I was never a fan of Dark and Lovely’s products back in the day. Just didn’t appeal to me, so naturally…I never tried when they came out with their new Au Naturale line either. I would see the products from time to time and would talk myself out of trying because I just knew I wouldn’t be pleased. Little did I know I would fall in LOVE with this stuff!

Product Details:

Quench dry hair with a delectable, hydrating treat just for your breaking, transitioning hair. Hair feels nourished and supple without the build-up or greasy transfer. – For Dry, Damaged Hair – Moisturizes and reconstructs damaged hair for supple, shiny finish – No Drying Alcohol, No Mineral Oil, No Parabens, No Petrolatum – SoftSheen-Carson

First…

The consistency is THICK!

Thick like a heavy cream, and I love that!

Second…

The smell is AMAZE balls!

Third…

It blends well with my beloved Eco Styler gel! LIKE WHET? lol. It’s hard to find a product that won’t flake on you when you have other products in your hair. I decided to try on dirty hair to see if it would flake. I spritzed my hair with water and applied the Softening Butter and then Olive Oil to seal and let me tell you, it was amazing! So hydrating!


Pros:

If you have DRY hair, this is perfect. The reason being is that the first ingredient is water and it is VERY thick, so it softens your hair and it hydrates. I would recommend wetting your hair before applying, and on clean hair.

Cons:

a TAD greasy! Just a tad. It says “no greasy transfer” but I had a little. Not bad at all, but just a heads up for anyone who may be anti-grease.

Where to find: Rite Aid’s, CVS and online.


Would I purchase again?

Yes! Point, blank and the period!

Have you tried this product? Did you like it? What about Dark and Lovely’s other products?

Until next time! XO!

Love,

Rayna

Ok..so my review…

If you follow my Instagram then you might’ve seen my 12 sec video where I explained how much I was loving my hair because of Camille Rose Natural’s Curl Maker. You already know my favorite styler (Eco Styler Gel), so I never buy stylers because I simply have found thee one. But! I heard so many good things about this styler and decided to give it a try. Plus, I can always use it on my daughter’s 4a hair if it doesn’t work well on my 3a-3c hair. It was hard to find. It says select Target stores, and they really mean select Target stores LOL. In my area, these products were mainly in “urban” Targets if you know what I mean. I finally found mine after going to three different Target’s! When I looked online for the Target’s that carried it, it said it was there got there and it wasn’t. I found mine at the Compton Target.

Pros 🙂

  • I like the pump for jelly styler. A jelly is different from a gel because it has more a slip and the consistency isn’t as thick.
  • I like the natural ingredients it offers
  • I like the shine that it gives my hair
  • Great for moisture and refreshing my curls
  • If you want definition but no crunch, this product is for you

Cons 😦

  • It leaves my hair sticky
  • I only get one day out of my wash and go
  • The price ($19.99)! My friend found her Camille Rose for $11 at Target!
  • Only found in select Target locations

Would I purchase again?

Maybe…

I say maybe because…I’ve been in the natural hair gang (pats fro, lol) for some time now. Because of this I’m no longer a product junkie. I know what works for my hair and what will not just by reading the ingredients and looking at the product. I have found my styler and my hair loves it.

HOWEVER….

It’s great for refreshing my curls instead of using it for a wash and go. I spritz my curls (usually in the back) with Aloe Vera Juice and then I take a pump or two of Camille Rose Natural’s Curl Maker and apply it by smoothing it in and I’m good to go. To stretch that section I make sure that it’s mostly dry, then I will pineapple with a scarf while I get ready. I take off my scarf and I will have moisturized shiny and defined curls 🙂

I will definitely purchase more of their other products!
