Samples galore!

23 Apr

I thoroughly enjoyed my self at the DE Naturalistas Naturally Redefined event! There were cute hair styles, good music, met some great girls and the best part….FREE SAMPLES!!! I got home, went through my bags and tried to organize everything by type of product (shampoo, conditioner, body stuff, maintain curls etc) and I was able to make a bag of goodies for my sis-in-law to try out (we always share hair stuff). Since it had been more than 2 weeks since I had washed my hair & it had begun to look like a blizzard on my dark shirts….(that’s so gross) I decided to wash my hair the next morning & these were some of the samples I used:

I liked all 3 samples. The Design Essentials shampoo didn’t strip my hair (sulfate free), Karen’s Body Beautiful Leave-in conditioner had a mild smell (or either I couldn’t really smell it) but it was a nice moisturizing conditioner and the cashmere curls smelled like grapes (feels smooth on your fingers). Now, I can be a bit heavy handed when it comes to using products but with a sample size, you can’t really do that. So this wash & go I did was good at home, but ended up frizzy during the day I think maybe because I didn’t use enough of the cashmere curls & the leave-in. My wash & go’s usually get a bit frizzy but not this much by the end of the day:

Afternoon hair:

Next day hair (slept with puff on top of head “pineapple”)

One thing I did notice is that the curls in the back did last better than my usual wash & go styles overnight. So that’s a plus, the less work I have to do, the better it works out for me.

Have you tried any of these products?
On to some more samples soon.

        I meant *in person* not ‘in purpose’

    I have tried and loved the KBB leave-in sweet ambrosia lavender vanilla smell. You probably have the unscented sample because when I used one of the scented ones, it remains in your hair for like 2 days. Your wash and go looks amazingly full.
