    I have fallen in love with a new hair care line called Silk Dreams. The products are high quality and contain many natural ingredients.

    http://www.silkdreamshaircare.com

    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. :lick: 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! :up::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.

    I love the nourishing oil. I've used it a lot since I got it. I was looking for some light oil. I think this one is a keeper. A little bit goes a LONG way.

    The verdict is still out on the leave in so far. Usually I try new products by itself, without adding any other products but since I was about to put some sew ins, I didn't want to take the risk so I added my good old Chi silk leave in to it.

    I'm not good at reviews, but I second the endorsement of the Whip My Hair Cleansing Cream.

    I have not tried the leave in or Silk Dreams Conditioner treatment yet because I'm a huge PJ and I have TONS of other stuff to try!

    I wanna try the whipped cleansing conditioner but I have 2 and a half Hair One's waiting to be used so I'll have to wait to try that plus my hair hates glycerin. When I tried Hairveda products my hair was a sticky mess b/c of that glycerin.

    chelleypie810, honey, I feel the same way about glycerin stuff... it just makes my hair feel weird (I'm trying to describe the feeling... sticky, hard, fake). I want to be honest with you, my hair did not feel that way at all. I was not expecting the shampoo from this line to be so good. And I can't stop sniffing it.

    Last night, I used Vanilla Silk Cream Moisture Dream Rich Moisture Treatment as a moisturizer (because it smells so good).

    I actually just used Silky Soft Leave-in Cream as a daily moisturizer and even my dry hair loves the stuff. I am going to force myself to exercise or go swimming just so I can have an excuse to wash my hair again :lol:

    I have tried many Hairveda products and Shescentit products (they are awesome) but my hair likes Silk Dreams the best.

    Can Supergirl advise on whether she will make her products available to folks in the UK? I get the impression not, at the moment, which is a shame.

    Yeah, I'd decided not to do international shipping, but I've already gotten several inquiries from prospective international customers. If that many people are interested, I want to make the products available. I am going to work out a minimum order policy for international orders. Give me about two weeks.

    tiffers,
    I am working on a reconstructor girl! Go to 'Life in the Silk Lane' on my website and you can read a tid bit about it. I got your email. I'll get back to you this evening with that info. :)

    Supergirl Yeah, I saw that part of your website about 10 minutes after I asked that question. :giggle:

    I can't wait! :yay:

    ... what about the pudding/gel, though? :D

    I've enjoyed the line thus far. I provided a review with the vendor thread. Thumbs up from me. The smell is extremely delicious. My hair was nicely moisturized and rollerset without issues.

    anjelicus the funny thing is...hair one has glycerin in it, and I didn't even realize. I don't know why my hair didn't respond well to hairveda products but it was just a sticky disaster.

    Awww, that's a nice compliment. I think the products along with healthy hair practices will take anyone's hair to its full potential. It's products like the ones I make that helped me in my hair journey. Many of my products were inspired by my favorite products over the years. That's why I sought certain ingredients for my products, because they were the ingredients I always found in my hair faves.

    No, I hadn't thought about doing a pudding or gel. Is there a good demand/market for that type of product? Tell me more. What are the basic ingredients found in a good pudding? One of the hair butters I made came out with a pudding/custard type of consistency. It's a good product, but I decided that the hair butter is going to be a straight up blend of natural oil-derived butters. Maybe the other product could turn into a the silk dreams "pudding."

    Supergirl Don't get me to lying, I have no clue what goes into gels or puddings! :lol:

    But I DO know that there's a big market out there. Lots of curly girls STAY looking for the perfect styler (no stiffness, no flakes, no dryness, great curl definition, good shine, etc.)

    With this whole Enso debacle, I'm strongly considering giving up on the gel, which is my HG. So back on the hunt I go. :(

    I would love to see a pudding from you!

    Do you have any plans for a water based moisturizer? Or do you think the leave-in can serve as that as well?

    tiffers, according to the Silk Dreams website, there is a moisturizer on the way. Hope it'll be just as effective as the others.

    BTW, I am typing this with a pre-treatment of Shea What! Therapeutic Conditioning Masque on dry hair. I will be sure to write a review for it too.

    Yep, the water based moisturizer is coming. It'll actually be aloe juice based, but ya know, same same, liquid based.

    Tiffers, try and find out what makes a pudding a pudding for me. I'll have to admit, that's a class of products I'm not at all familiar with.

    Supergirl I know you directed this to tiffers, but to me, Qhemet's Burdock Root Butter Cream has a pudding-like consistency-at least the one's I've gotten.

    Supergirl Your products look great. I've been perusing your website all morning.

    I think creating a "pudding" type styling product for girly girls is an excellent idea. I know I would definitely purchase. The curly hair market is big business now. I think a good example of a hair pudding is Miss Jessies Curly Pudding and Curly Meringue. To my knowledge the MJ line was one of the 1st on the market. Before them BBD Curling Glass Cream was popular. These products have had there share on controversy but they $ell. If you could develop a comparable product with top notch ingredients I think it would be a big hit!

    If you could create something like that BBDs Glass (pudding ish) it would be excellent. He won't put what's in it, and it is sooo expensive.

    January Noir's Silk Dreams Review
    Hair state: Relaxed, 4a/b, fine/thin, 9 weeks post-relaxer

    Silk Dreams products used
    *********************
    Whip My Hair! Whipped Cleansing Cream
    This product is very creamy with a sweet, but fresh scent; not too strong, not too faint.

    It was easy to apply - I followed the directions, and loved the smooth creaminess of it. Not as slippery as Wen or Creme of Nature. Whip My Hair is very creamy and rinsed out very well. After ninsing, and while still wet, hair felt and smelled clean, not coated. What I missed was the post-wash "slip" I've come to enjoy with Chaz Dean's Wen (I use Fig).
    Rating: B+

    Shea What! Therapeutic Conditioning Masque
    Applied following instructions - I left if on for an hour under a plastic conditioning cap. The product rinsed out well, not a lot of slip, but that's ok. The scent is nice too; not to strong, not too faint.
    I didn't purchase the Silk Dreams leave-so I just used my Wen Fig as a leave-in. My hair de-tangled easy enough, but then again, I don't have issues with de-tangling like some women here on LHCF do.
    Rating: A-

    Nourish Nourishing Hair Oil (Dream Decadence)
    I parted my hair after my comb-out and separated into 4 sections. I applied 3-4 drops of the Nourish oil to each, damp section and twisted. The scent I chose has a sweet scent, but not too overpowering. I tied my hair up in my silk scarf and retired for the evening.
    The next morning, I untwisted my hair and combed it out. My hair was soooo shiney! :grin: It was actually blingtastic! :yep: My hair was indeed silky and shiney! I looked in the mirror and said, "oh my!" Just like Supergirl said it would! :yep:

    I just used the nourish oil, and I love it. It's great for bunning. Makes my hair super soft, and sinks in. It doesn't make my hair feel oily.

    Supergirl I love seeing anything flax and aloe. The more aloe, the better. Aloe juice, aloe oil and especially aloe butter. I have a soft spot for aloe butter. :love:

    Also, ceramides are hot stuff right now, so I always love seeing any of those oils. Hemp, safflower, grapeseed, rice bran, etc.

    I'm trying to have ceramides in every step of my regimen, so I always choose something with ceramides over something that doesn't.

    Oooh, silk protein/SAA in a pudding would be awesomesauce!

    The moisture cream I'm working on has aloe juice and grapeseed oil. :yep: Maybe it can be the "pudding."
