Curl Mart: Product Haul

So, I did something that I hardly ever do...I bought a bunch of really expensive (by MY standards) hair products online (I did I use a 25% off coupon). You see, I love instant gratification when it involves purchases that cost a little more than average. So, when I make such purchases, I want to be walking home with it and trying it out in T-5 minutes. But not so with online purchases anywho, let me get to the products:

I bought 3 products by Curl Junkie:

I've tried two of the three products so far: the Repair Me! as a protein treatment and the Coffee-Coco Curl Creme here is my review of the Repair Me!

My Experience: 
  • I co-washed my hair with my Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle (TJTTT) conditioner 
  • Plopped my hair with a T-shirt  to get it damp and not dripping wet
  • Applied Repair Me! in small sections through out my hair making sure every strand was very saturated
  • Covered my hair with a plastic cap, did chores all day and didn't wash it off until the end of the day (about 8 hours total)
  • Rinsed it off in the shower
Pros:
  • I loved the smell, I love anything that smells pretty
  • My hair felt stronger to the touch, it felt as though it had improved elasticity which tells me that I got the protein I needed from it
  • My hair still felt soft to the touch
Cons:
  • Pricey, I don't know if I would want to purchase it frequently
  • It compares to the Aubery Organics GPB conditioner as a protein treatment
My Verdict:
I love it as a stronger protein treatment to be used every 2 weeks or as needed. I will keep it around and use it often alternating with the GPB to stretch the product.

That's it for now lovelies and I will be back to review the   Curl Junkie Coffee-Coco Curl Creme after I use it one more time.

Have any of ladies used any of the Curl Junkie Products? What are your verdicts?
