I tried this new cleansing conditioner in lew of shampoo called Tweak-d Restore Self Cleansing Hair Treatment. You put it on dry hair and let it soak in for five to ten minutes. I placed it on my hair, which took a lot more for my hair than the instructions suggested. Then I sat in the steamy washroom for about 10 minutes and followed the directions, adding some water to my head and massaging then adding a little bit more of the cleansing conditioner, massaging my scalp and then rinsing well.
Honestly? This product just didn’t do anything for my hair. It cleaned and conditioned it but I actually would say that my daughters Herbal Essence works BETTER! For all that work to get subpar results just didn’t sit right with me. A THICK hair treatment like that should have left my hair feeling silky soft and instead I actually thought it felt sort of crunchy while drying. I don’t use heat or any products in my hair so this was also alarming. However once fully dried it feels normal and doesn’t feel dirty so I guess it did do the cleansing portion.
I noticed I have some staining coming back on one of my teeth and no money to go to get a cleaning right now. I did a spot treatment of hydrogen peroxide on that tooth with a Q-Tip and then brushed and rinsed really well. It lightened up a little bit but I am wondering what a safer solution would be perhaps some whitening toothpaste that actually works? Suggestions?
For Christmas I got those little EOS Lip Balm‘s. They are the ball shape you have probably seen in Walmart or your drug store. I have strawberry and passion fruit. This is my first time using them and they are so silky smooth. I struggle to find a lip balm that I don’t find sticky. I hate getting my long hair or my dog hair stuck to my lips. It’s just not attractive, or tasty! So I am really happy that these are so silky and unique and the ball shape is ingenious as they won’t be getting lost in my purse, I hope.
Tonight when I tucked in my daughter she said “you smell like strawberry, it smells good” I was shocked because she never hands out compliments, especially when it’s bedtime and she is being forced to conform to a rancid bedtime of 8:30 AKA 10. The strawberry smell was the EOS Lip Balm and I actually had expected her to comment on the Tweak-d smell of my hair because it is a nutty shea buttery smell. I would have to look at the ingredients as I don’t remember exactly, but it’s a grown up more natural fragrance than many hair products, which I appreciate as it didn’t bug my allergies.
Next one of my favorite products this year, the Goody TangleFix! It is a lot like the Tangle Teezer from what I can tell, though I don’t have a Tangle Teezer to compare but I think this one is better because it is slightly arched to apply even pressure to the scalp and one side is wider and the other narrower so bigger hands can hold it from the wider side and smaller from the narrow side. This brush also works GREAT for sensitive scalps. I find the TangleFix helps fly-aways and when used regularly is a great everyday brush that doesn’t damage the hair.
Finally, my FAVORITE, MUST HAVE, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT has to do with overall health and a surprise weight loss! I started to use Plexus products back in September. I have a lot of weight to lose but I actually started to use them because they heal the gut from the inside and that helps your overall health and allows your much healthier body to start shedding the extra without dieting or having to exercise. I have lost a total of 20 inches in that time and to me that is absolutely amazing because I have gained so much weight because of medications and no matter what I have tried I just couldn’t budge the scale down, or the inches.
I am still nowhere near where I want to be but I am 20 inches closer! I am sort of angry I didn’t start a year ago when I first heard about this awesome all natural health company. The happy part? If I continue to have the exact same results continued for the next nine months I will be down about 80lbs and who knows how many inches. That is like an amazing WOW to me because I never imagined being able to lose at all, never mind feeling like I have a completely reasonable and doable timeline!
What are your favorite products? If you have used any of these did you like them? Thoughts?
