Wash Night-Day Results & Product Reviews (Roots Only Applicator Bottle, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist & Aubrey Organics HSRC) :-)

Hey There guys!

Yeppers, so I wanted to do a real quick recap of how my last wash day went as well as a review some of the new products that I used. You remember that impromptu product hall that I did the other day? "to see click here :-)" I'll be reviewing 3 of those purchases today.
I wanted to give them a few uses before I said yay or nay - unless of course they were COMPLETELY terrible off the bat! :-)

Okay,
So Wash Night-Day!

  • I called it wash Night-Day because I actually started my "Wash Day" from the night before :-). I parted my freshly detangled hair down the middle and applied my hair oil mixture to my scalp using the "Roots Only" Comb Applicator Bottle - "To see how I make the Essential Oil Mix, click here :-)"
  • I then added a small amount or water to each section of hair so that it was moist but NOT Damp.
  • I then applied the very last teensie bit of the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner that I had left - about 2 tablespoons.
  • I then applied 1 tablespoon of Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner to each section, worked it in from root to tip. 

  • The hair was then covered with a plastic cap and then a scarf and left overnight - moist but not DAMP
  • The following morning I rinsed the conditioner out with warm water, then applied Nexxus Polymedic Emergency Reconstructor to both sections - left in for 5 minutes, then rinsed thoroughly.
  • Shampooed with Design Essentials Moisture Retention Shampoo.
  • AT THIS POINT My hair felt quite DRY, I was slightly panicked, but after I added a handful of the Mane & Tail Deep Moisturizing Conditioner, it felt like butter! A-Men!
  • I then rinsed out the conditioner with warm, then cold water, and towel dried for about 40 minutes.
  • I then air dried with a scarf, applying my "Grapeseed+Castor oil mix" to my ends and Shea Moisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Style Milk to the length of the hair (only a dime-sized amount, a little goes a long way!) - I'm in LOVE with this stuff! :-)

  • I then put the hair in 2 braids and left it in a bun for 2 days, yesterday (the 3rd day post wash) I took down the braids, brushed it out a bit with my denman brush for a "fluffy" Braidout look  
RESULTS:

*Hehehe burning the midnight oil/procrastinating, 
Meh! The coffee was good though! :-D*

Now onto the review of the new products I used...
Roots Only Comb Applicator Bottle

  1. PROS: Low cost, Easy to use, Gets product right to the scalp where you want it!
  2. CONS: Can't find any right now:-)
  3. Overall Score: 10/10!
I luv luv LUV this product! I'll be using it quite regularly to apply my Essential Oil mix to my scalp. This product made the process A LOT neater than I'm used to, and what's more, I used less Oil Mix than usual because it wasn't all over my hair strands, just at the scalp where I wanted it in the first place. I saw this at Sally's on my vacation and I'm really happy with this purchase! :-D

Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner

  1. PROS: Super Moisturizing!!! Lovely smell!
  2. CONS: Not much slip, Can be pricey ($), Not readily available here in BVI so I have to buy it online in the future
  3. Overall Score: 9.5/10!
Oh how I love this product, let me count the ways... One one thousand, two one thousand... LOL!
Seriously though, this was a great buy. I had read good reviews on amazon and from other bloggers blog posts so I decided I'd give it a try, NO REGRETS!
True, it's not the most helpful in terms of "slip", for my hair at least, but honestly this is one of the most moisturizing conditioners I've ever used in my HHJ, EVER!The hair feels like butter when I use it! Luv luv LUV it!
I wish it was more readily available here, but so it goes, I'll definitely be making an online purchase soon ;-)

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist Conditioner
  1. PROS: Low Cost, Easy-to-use cute bottle, nice mild smell
  2. CONS: Not much slip (for "my" Texlaxed hair), not as moisturizing as I had hoped.
  3. Overall Score: 7/10 :-)
I used this product twice prior to the wash day mentioned above. I tried it for "Cowashing" and then a few days later I tried it post shampooing on damp hair. 
Both times, I felt as though my hair wasn't too excited. My relaxed hair ends LOVE it but my Texlaxed length (which is now over half of my length) was a bit underwhelmed. It didn't give me as much slip as I would like, I found I had to add a bit of Coconut Oil to it while it was one my hair to get some "slip" going.
I do luv the convenient & neat spout though, no messes around here! :-) I just wish it was a bit more moisturizing for my hair. I still have more, so maybe I'll mix some coconut oil in with the conditioner in a bowl before I apply it to my hair next time,
Waste not want not! :-)

Yeppers Peppers, so that's about it!
I hope these reviews are helpful to anyone thinking of getting any of these products. There will soon be more reviews coming your way; Until then,
Have a fantastic week!
