It is very Thick
Haircare model Combined Chicks (accessible here) has been on my radar since 2012. Back then I was interning for journal Black Magnificence & Hair and i had the pleasure of meeting the curly-haired founders, Wendi Levy and Kim Etheredge. I really resonated with their expertise of utilizing the out there hair products in the marketplace, which have been made for either very dry hair or oily hair with little in between. Wendi and Kim defined that their brand was for individuals who did not fit in to those categories and although my hair was relaxed straight I hoped that the merchandise would still work for me. In brief, I tried a few of the merchandise with little success. Coming back to them 3 years later I wished to have an open mind as my hair has modified so much since then.
Gentle Clarifying Shampoo (£11.90/300ml)*
I really like this shampoo which gives a lot of slip and makes my hair actually silky. It doesn’t really lather nevertheless it nonetheless cleanses and removes construct-up well. I’ve tried this with and with out making use of a pre shampoo therapy first and it did make my strands a little dry with the latter. Though I’ll continue to make use of it when it runs out I do not assume I would purchase it as I have a number of shampoos I like already.
Go away-In Conditioner (£15.90/300ml)*
I have been utilizing this leave-in regularly because it gives gorgeous definition. You’ve got to use it when the hair is wet or it can depart your strands sticky so I depend on this when my hair has simply been freshly washed or dampened first. I apply it fairly generously but if you employ an excessive amount of it could make the hair feel just a little crunchy. I often simply add a bit of of my moisturiser when my hair is totally dry to make it tender again without disturbing the definition. I like the scent and my hair would not get frizzy when using this. black hair with pink bangs Although this leave-in is dear it is definitely a product I’ll pick up when it runs out.
Detangling Deep Conditioner (£10.90/236ml)*
I actually wished to love this product as deep conditioners are my absolute favourite merchandise to use. It is very thick, buttery and smells stunning but I find this missing something. It is not formulated with particularly particular components which is a bit disappointing contemplating the excessive price. The directions state to ‘apply and rinse’ too which I found a little bit confusing as deep conditioners often need to be left on from wherever from 5-half-hour. I have been principally leaving it on my hair with a steamer for roughly 10-15 minutes and it is allowed me to detangle my strands very easily. With out utilizing my steamer nevertheless this deep conditioner doesn’t give my thirsty hair the moisture it needs. It is best suited to hair that does not get very dry.
Morning After Redefining Foam (£11.90/236ml)*
I really like black hair with pink bangs the thought of this product, which is presupposed to refresh curls without the need for re-wetting the hair, but I’m not completely sold on the precise product itself. Ive used it several times in an try and convey back curl definition (usually lost whilst sleeping) and it does work however I’ve to apply rather a lot to actually make any affect, which solely leaves my hair wet and slightly sticky.
Overall it’s clear Combined Chicks merchandise work much better for my hair now being pure/texlaxed than it did when my hair was absolutely relaxed. I like the packaging and fragrance of the products however I am not completely satisfied there’s sufficient first rate components inside to warrant the excessive value tag. While I had a superb expertise with the merchandise here, the only merchandise I’d purchase out of the 4 is the Leave-In Conditioner.
