new Patene product to loosen curl???

TaraVictoriaTaraVictoria Posts: 374Registered Users
I was just at Target and noticed this new shampoo and conditioner that says something like "curl to straight" - and it says it loosens the curl.... Of course, for all I know , it could be out now for 6 mos and I have no clue!
anyone try it out yet??? I know it's not natural and it does have dimethicone, among other things... Just wondering if anyone has experimented just yet????

Thanks!
Tara

    It's available. You can just google it to see if there are reviews out there. Drugstore.com has a 15% off sale and it has the full list of ingredients. Runs just over five bucks and here's a list of sellers:

    Seems like it will be very drying (lots of sulfates) and it does have dimethicone (which is likely helping the smoothing effect).

    Most shampoos/condishes with "smoothing" in the description have a slight curl relaxing property, I've found, though I don't seek to straighten now, but rather to enhance my curl. I offer this observation from when I used to blow dry. :D

    I skipped the shampoo because I don't do sulfates but I did decide to try the conditioner. First I tried it as a leave-in. Hated it. Then I tried it as a co-wash for wash and goes, and it was okay. I think it loosened my curls that were already looser, but the really tight curls I wanted to loosen didn't budge. Plus I had to do a second co-wash behind it to get moisturizing. I think this for people who plan to do the extra step of straightening their hair and I don't do that. Doubt I'll buy this again. I also bought the new Pantene curly hair dc. YUCK!!:sad5: I gave that away. It felt like I had a coating on my hair even also a rinse.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:
