Just Emergencee. Is Polymedic the good one/old formula???
I have no idea because I've never used them before. I just see two of 'em floating around - one says Polymedic Emergency and has a big P on the label, and the other just says Emergencee. The ingredients are also different, where the Emergencee has cones, but the Polymedic doesn't and also has elastin. I'm confused.
Emergencee is more concentrated and can be used in a couple minutes. Polymedic needs heat to be effective. It gets hard.
Yeah Emergencee definitely is more concentrated. The one tiny tube covered all my ends with a little to spare at the end.
But my box doesn't show any cones in it as far as the ingredients so now I'm wondering if it's the old or new formula...
Unfortunately, the scents I like have been discontinued, with my favorites being the apricot colada and pineapple ginger. However, the lemon beignet smells a lot like pound cake; and the muscovado has a light, nutty, sugary aroma. Both of those are pretty decent. I honestly didn't care for the fig julep at all. I opened the jar, took a whiff, cringed, took another snoot full just to make sure, cringed again, quickly put the lid back on, placed it in a box and mailed it to my sister. To me, it had a strong spicy tone to it that turned me off, but my sister didn't mind it. I have a refrigerator drawer full of the discontinued ones to keep me content. On the flip side, just in case, Sdotbeauty makes a body cream that looks and performs exactly like the Whipped Custard. You can find it here: http://sdotbeauty.com/products/body-velvet-decadent-whipped-body-treat. My favorite scent is paradise because it smells like fruit (I prefer fruits rather than baked goods). I hope this has helped.
Hit and Miss: Sarenzo Creamy Oil Pink Berry Fluff
The oil felt great going on and absorbed into my skin but I can do without this scent. Reminds me of sweet cough syrup.
L'Oreal Total Repair Damage Erase Balm conditioner mask- This product held up to it's claim. My hair felt a little stronger and smoother after one use. What I loved most about it is that you only had to leave it one for a 3 minutes. It has enough slip that you can work it through your hair and massage it in. I plan to use this weekly and do a midweek moisture DC just to keep things balanced.

Having the urge to purchase something.
Hit - Co-wash my twists with SM Purification Masque mixed with Betonite clay, Burdock root, Nettle leaf and Triphala tea
I got a clean scalp with no root webbing and soft,springy twists. My twis-touts were super defined this week with no gel. The Amla in Triphala enhances curls.
Miss - SM Purification Masque is discontinued; I used the last jar in my stash
Komaza protein treatment.
Man, listen. This stuff right HERE!! Shout out to Tasia @Saludable84 for talking me into trying it. I have THE most protein sensitive hair on the planet so I was nervous using this treatment. I clarified with ORS creamy aloe and then followed the instructions on the bottle. When I initially applied it, I got scared...like REAL scared. My hair instantly froze and felt weird. This stuff locked my cuticles DOWN. I applied it thoroughly and let it sit for 30 minutes. When I rinsed, my hair still felt so strange. It felt slippery and coated? I don't know how to describe it, but I was really scared. I then followed up with my SM Superfruit Mask and topped it with YAM. I DCed for nearly 2 hours and rinsed. My hair felt like butter. I was shocked. My hair still feels like butter. My hair has never felt better. I now see the benefit of using the RIGHT protein treatment for natural hair. I love the SSI okra, but it is a bit too light.
A little goes a long way, so I see this bottle lasting me a while, especially since I won't use it often (probably once every 8 weeks). This is my new staple protein reconstructor. For those who have LP hair and are hesitant to try a stronger protein, try this one. It really is amazing.
