Default Dark And Lovely Au Naturale "anti shrinkage" Hair line



Has anyone else seen this line? I saw them putting up a sign on my bss about them.

I have to say they really seem to be up on the hair trends with the "anti shirnkage" bit.

I think it is really cool that they are "listening" but when it comes down to it, do the products deliver?

It includes:
hydrating soak shampoo
knot out conditioner
curl defining creme glaze
coil moisturizing souffle
shine sealing nectar
10 in 1 styling gelee

any thoughts?

interesting.. what do they mean by 'anti shrinkage'
Seeing big companies like this changing to products suited for naturals really shows that naturals have come a long way!

Default Re: Dark And Lovely Au Naturale "anti shrinkage" Hair line

My two cents:
marketing scheme
The only product that is anti-shrinkage is one that is going to straighten your hair and/or loosen your curls a lot. No conditioner is going to do that unless it is one that does it permanently or requires a lot of heat.
Side note: I don't buy into the natural relaxers people subscribe to that use yogurt. I've watched numerous videos and do not see a difference except deep conditioned hair.

I don't think those are necessarily bad (Tresemme Naturals has isopropyl alcohol in it), but I am concerned how far up the ingredient list this is. Before the mango seed oil?? I would have expected to see it at the bottom of the ingredient list.

They reformulated it and removed the alcohol. These ingredients don't necessarily make a product bad but knowing that many women with natural hair usually do not want those ingredients in their products, why create products with it?

Nope. I do not buy products aimed at naturals by relaxer companies. I can't say that I trust them.

Oh, they obviously don't want any well-informed naturals using this line with that isopropyl alcohol in the ingredient list, and within the first 10 ingredients too. I would also go in on them about having a cone as the 5th ingredient, but ammodimethicone is one of the more innocuous cones.

The pink one has pretty much the exact same ingredients as Let's Jam Custard. Same color and consistency as well. I don't understand why these companies that make multiple hair product lines do this dumb mess.
