I went to Walgreens to get the Revlon Lip butter and saw this had Motions new natural line up on sale for Buy one get one for half off.

One priced item was $6.99. There are cones in them and seems to be very high up in the list.


I purchased the

Smoothing Conditioner 8ozs
Deep Conditioning Masque 8ozs
Define my Curls Creme 8ozs ( this is like a gelly putty, interesting)
Hydrate my Curls Pudding ( slight purple tinge)

I know theres also a shampoo and gloss in the lineup

    Does the Define My Curls kinda resemble vaseline? That's the impression I'm getting from the pics.

    Thanks for uploading!
  • CerendipityCerendipity Posts: 5,091Registered Users Curl Novice
    It looks like it but it doesnt feel like it.

    Its like Myjoie Gel , but melts easier. Have you ever seen that before?
  • AmberBrownAmberBrown Posts: 1,072Registered Users
    Nope. Did you like that?

    I'm gonna search for this line and the Roots of Nature stuff this evening. No Walgreens but maybe Walmart or Target :dontknow:

    I'll list it when I get home for you

    ETA I liked Myjoie for twists. Very elongating. This I dont think will be the same because its more malleable .
  • CerendipityCerendipity Posts: 5,091Registered Users Curl Novice
    yup there are cones, not sure if you can see the picture well

    Well cyclopentasiloxane and cyclohexasiloxane are also cones (-xane and -conol are silicone based ingredients as well as -cone). I dunno how 'bad' they are though. :dontknow:

    Walgreens had these products on sale for buy one, get one half off. I bought the Hydrate My Curls Pudding and Define My Curls Creme. I washed with my 360 shampoo and Taliah Waajid conditioner. I used the Hydrate My Curls as a leave in and twisted with the Define My Curls. My hair is still twisted. My hair feels soft so far. The Define My Curls resembles grease (which I like) but my hair feels light.

    I will try it for a couple of days and report back. If it doesn't work out, at least I only paid $11 for them. I had been using the Keracare Natural Textures line.

    Update: The Hydrate My Curls did not hydrate at all. My hair was crunchy. I washed my hair the next day and used my Keracare leave-in conditioner first before applying the products. My hair was soft but dull. The Define My Curls reminds me of grease. My twist outs were soft but the hold was not firm. My twist out lasted one day and not two to three. I will try the Define My Curls again once my hair is trimmed next week. I will not repurchase but I will finish the jar and find ways to make it work. Keracare works better for me.

    I tried the Definie My Curls paired with SM Curl Enhancing Smoothie mixed with Eco Styler Olive Oil gel. I did a braid out and my hair came out very defined and soft. Since my hair is coarse, wire and very hard, this was amazing to me. I like the product and will use it in my rotation. My hair was not greasy, but then I didn't use a lot since I was using other products. I think this is a product to use sparingly. Not sure if I will try the other products.
  • CerendipityCerendipity Posts: 5,091Registered Users Curl Novice
    I used the Conditioner and the Hydrate my curls pudding last week to refresh a Wng. My hair was soft and defined but coated a little. I'm not sure if it was because the conditioner was too thick but I had a little flakes the next day.

    I will try again sometime this week but only with the pudding.
