Just Grow Already Product Review: Kurlee Belle Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment

Price: $16 for 8 oz jar

Purchased From: 

Promises: "Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment is just what the doctor ordered for dry, damaged hair. Bring those tresses back to life with our smooth concoction of Banana, Avocado, Honey and Coconut. Banana is rich in potassium and hailed for its moisturizing properties. Avocado contains fatty acids that nourish, smooth and soften hair. Honey provides shine while conditioning to make hair soft and supple. Coconut hydrates, conditions and softens. The No List: No parabens. No sulfates. No Animal Ingredients. No Gluten. No Paraffin. No Phthalates. No Mineral Oil. No PABA. No DEA. No Synthetic Color. No Propylene Glycol. No Petroleum."

Directions: Apply a generous amount to wet hair. Gently massage into scalp and comb through with fingers or wide tooth comb. Cover with a plastic cap. Sit under hooded dryer for 5-20 minutes. Rinse with cool water. 

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Stearic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Musa Sapientum (Banana) Fruit Basil Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Honey Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance (Parfum). 

My Assessment: The first time I used this conditioner, it honestly confused me haha. When it's first scooped out it's on the thin side and has a gel-like feel, but after rubbing my palms together it quickly thickens to a creamy texture. Also, because of the consistency a little goes a long way.

On application it sinks into my hair, defines my new growth nicely (instantly triggering my hand-in-hair syndrome) and provides lots of slip, which I absolutely appreciate with all this new growth! Because of the slip it provides (and I do this with all conditioners), applying it first to my ends made it super easy to part my hair into smaller sections to get to my new growth.

I have deep conditioned with this conditioner both overnight and with heat from either my Hot Head heat cap or my Gold N' Hot conditioning cap, but it works best for me with heat (penetrates into my hair more effectively). It also has a pleasant fragrance that does not linger and rinses out well (does not cling to my hair or scalp).

After deep conditioning my hair feels so soft, smooth, and detangled. My bone straight ends clump together more than my new growth or texlaxed hair, but that's now the norm with my hair. Best thing about this conditioner is that the moisture it provides lasts. I used this conditioner to deep condition over night when I did my recent flexi rod set and was able to go 5 days without moisturizing my hair. Here's my day 4 hair from that flexi rod set.

Natural Hair | Lupita Nyong'o First Black Ambassador for Lancome

 Lupita Nyong'o, 12 Years A Slave Actress and Academy Award Winner, becomes the first black ambassador for French luxury brand, Lancome. 

This accomplishment should be celebrated by black women all over the world for so many reasons:

1) The beauty industry is changing their views of what is considered beautiful. They are moving away from the European look and embracing other races. 

2) Lupita's hair is anything but straight. It is natural. Which encourages girls all over the world that you can rock your natural hair and still be beautiful! 

Lancome holds true to their vision that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself

We cannot wait to see all of the shiny packages and ads with Lupita's glowing skin. 

Congratulations Lupita!

I loved these products. Firstly, which is most important to me, they smell AMAZING! Every product smells like tropical goodness! It made me want to put it in my hair.- Lexiwiththecurls of 

I sectioned my hair into four and began twisting with the Kurl Creme. This Kurl Creme was a bit thicker than what I normally used but it worked like a charm. I twisted all over on wet hair and my results were super defined hair. - MelissaChanel of
