I have fallen in love with a new hair care line called Silk Dreams. The products are high quality and contain many natural ingredients.
Whip My Hair Whipped Cleansing Cream - The smell of it is like a vanilla cookie, which I love (and, yes, I did attempt to eat it, lol). The consistency is like a thick conditioner; if you open the jar and turn it upside down, it doesn't come out. I love the fact that it comes in a jar! The shampoo has a very light lather-- it almost felt like conditioner. When I rinsed it out, it felt soft, not stripped at all. It also didn't have that fake coated feeling that "cones" usually give me. My hair and scalp felt very clean after only one shampoo. Honestly, I may not have needed to follow up with a conditioner, my hair had slip from the shampoo-- I did only because I am a conditioner junkie. Two thumbs up!
TIPS: a.) You may only have to shampoo your hair once, no need to repeat. b.) Keep in mind that you do not HAVE to make a ton of lather for a shampoo to be effective.
Vanilla Silk Cream Moisture Dream Rich Moisture Treatment - This one also smells like vanilla cookies. and I tried eating this one too! It's even thicker than the shampoo. After towel drying my hair, I applied the cream and sat under the dryer for 25 minutes. I noticed while applying the cream that my hair soaked it up. I am accustomed to loading my hair with tons of conditioner, not caring how much product goes down the drain. A little goes a long way with this product. While rinsing out the conditioner, my hair had slip and felt extremely moisturized... not that fake "silicone" moisturized type either... I am in LOVE.
TIP: a) Don't worry if you don't "see" this conditioner in your hair after applying-- it's there and it is definitely working.
Silky Soft Leave-in Cream - I like the light, fresh, scent that this product has but I wish that it smelled like vanilla cookies too. I was VERY skeptical about this leave-in because the ingredients seem so simple, but I had no idea how awesome this leave-in would be. Once again, that "cone-y" feeling that I am so used to has now been replaced with the feeling of real moisture. My hair was extremely easy to comb.
Usually after I apply a leave-in, I have to spray my hair with water to keep it wet during the roller setting process. This was the first time in ages that I did not have to do that at all! My hair stayed wet during the entire process. My hair remained detangled during the complete washing process-- there was no need to wash and condition my hair in sections as I normally do.
So far, this line gets two thumbs up!
I could not stop touching my hair after my hair dried...or at work (which could be a problem). My hair is so soft and touchable!
I have a few other products to try and will certainly post a review of those soon in this thread. I only wish I purchased more products from the line.
Here is a picture that I took after work today... Yes, I have short hair again and I am working on my length now.
