    Ladies,

    I know that what works on one head may work on another, but there are some products that are just USELESS. With false claims and ingrediants that do nothing to address the issue you brought it for. Others are just USELESS HYPE

    What is the product, post a pic to help warn others, and say why??......

    I am starting with useless hype.....

    Lets Jam (back to the old school:yep:) :lachen:
    I wont lie, I was slicking my sides down EVERY morning!! and then having to reapply & apply & apply:wallbash: it held nothing!!

    [​IMG]

    Although they claim it has no wax, grease or Alcohol,( a good thing) Can someone please review the ingrediants list and tell me how this can be CONDITIONING anything!:lachen:

    Aqua/Water, Paraffinum Liquidum/Mineral Oil, Oleth-5, Glycerin Peg-24 Hydrogenated Lanolin, Peg-12, Oleth 20, Cetyl Acetate, PPG-5- Ceteth-10 Phosphate, Peg-75, Parfum/Fragrance, Polyquaternium-6, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Acetylated Lanolin Alcohol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Limonene, Tocopheryl Acetate, Benzyl Salicylate, Triethanolamine, Butylphenyl Menthylpropional, Benzyl Alcohol, Hydroxycitronellal, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxalhehyde, Geraniol, Linalool,, amyl Cinnamal, CI 19140/Yellow 5, CI 16035 / Red 40.

    Oh my, why did you start this thread??? Its on:


    ORS replenishing PAK did not moisturized my hair at all
    Hairveda products - don't know why they didn't work for me. ended up mixing it with everything under the sun. Like the Almond glaze but on the build up!
    Carrot oil product
    Shea butter (oh the bluid up)
    KKKC - um my hair never dried. NEVA!!! If I had rewashed my hair and rolled it that day I would still be waiting for it to dry hahahaha!

    Also cosigning with LFM on the Assiue moist/and HE HH; don't understand the hype but then again cowashing is NT FOR ME EITHER. SO thatis probably why.

    Tis all.

    I've sworn off of ANYTHING with the second ingredient being Mineral Oil. I don't see how anyone, with any hair type, can get any benefit from Mineral Oil. I dumped Keracare because of it...yuk.

    I kept reading about ladies here using and swearing by Motions CPR deep conditioner. I went to the BSS and looked at the ingredients and put it back on the shelf. Then I kept kept hearing the rave...so I talked myself into it rationalizing that Affirm Sustenance has some (very low on the list) and that Sustenance works for me, so I bought some.

    Well after the first time, my hair was crunchy twigs....and then literally twigs. What the hell is that tree bark and leaves doing in it. When I combed out my hair after rinsing it, it was like someone opened up a tea bag on my head. So much for the yummy banana smell.

    Let's Jam with second ingredient Mineral Oil? NOT!

    I once was in love with Jam- but now it's like a bad ex!
    I haven't used pink oil in literally 20 years but I gave it up then
    Ecostyler gel- it caused my hair to flake...I know several naturals that will want to stone me on this one...
    I may be back...

    I like let's Jam but it can't be used when it's warm out. I actually have a pic where jam is running down my face & I was not happy.

    lets see.... Pink oil moisturizer I used this on my dd whn she was like one and a hlf and thats when all her hair problems started

    Dr. miracles products I really thought I was doing something whn I first moved to Germany and started doing my own hair. I ordered like everything. And slowly but surely my hair started to desintergrate.

    and oil sheen anything. Someon who I thought had pretty hair told me once that she only sprayed her scalp with oil sheen everyday. Well I tried it and not only did my hair not grow, but I had the worst dandruff imaginable! so I avoid that stuff like the plague now

    Wow this thread really proves that what works for one does not work for another. I LOVE this conditioner. In fact this is the only leave in so far that has worked for me.
