I've only used their foaming lotion to do my roller set, but I was wondering if anyone else has used products from this line and what they thought about it.

    What did you think of the foaming lotion?

    I've tried their creme conditioning shampoo. It was nice at first, but after a while began to leave a film on my hair preventing all other products from penetrating properly.

    Their Intense conditioner was terrible on my hair, it made it hard and stiff. It's the type of the conditioner that actually makes your hair feel more dry than the shampoo you used before it.

    I am a repeat buyer of their Feels Like Silk gel. This is a wonderful product. It's a liquid gel that never gets hard or stiff no matter how much you use (though if you really go overboard, you might get grease and a slight gumminess).

    It's very moisturizing, works well as a leave in also; it gives a very smooth feel when applied to dry hair. When using it as a leave in, I always apply on dry hair, and then use a styler over. When using it as a styler, I apply it on wet hair, usually over a small amount of PM The Conditioner.

    My only gripe with it is that it does not have that much hold (none on dry hair, very slight hold on wet hair).

    I really liked the foaming lotion. Didn't make my hair feel weird on anything. The ingredients in it were nice as well.

    I've tried the shampoo, H-two(leave-in), Intense Cond. on my daughters relaxed hair. They worked OK on her hair. Organic Root Stimulates is my first choice for her. Way-y-y-y back in the day I tried the Feels Like Silk on my hair. That was when I didn't have a clue as to what products to use in my hair. Since I've been on a curly girl routine I haven't tried it. I remember that I used to love this gel. I used it as a leave-in. I didn't have to layer it w/anything. I can't remember what the ingredients were. I'll do a quick search to see if it's CG friendly.

    ETA-
    There was once a thread on this hair gel and someone posted the ingred. and they looked fine to me. I would try it again. It worked great! :bounce:

    My hair laughs at soft hold gels lol. It's really coarse and frizzy. But I might try it as a leave in as you suggested. Thanks I appreciate it and the igredients don't look bad at all.

    I order a sample pack from them a while a go, but didn't use all the products.

    The Intense conditioner smelled great but didn't give me a "wow" factor. I mean, it was okay, it did moisturize my hair, but I don't think I'll repurchase again.

    The Recovery Oil moisturizer was a farce to me. I didn't moisturize anything and left white residue on my hair.

    The Creme Conditioning shampoo is great. It's sulfate free and doesn't strip my hair (as most other sulfate-free shampoos do). I'm considering adding it as a staple.
    Coily and cute.

    I used the EQP glaze when I was transitioning and had just about as much natural hair as permed hair. It was pretty good at slicking my hair back and it gave great shine too...

    The texture kind of reminded me of "let's jam" gel, but it was nowhere near as greasy. It was one of those gels that you had to "emulsify" between your hands to be able to apply it to your hair...

    I'm not sure of the ingredients - and I used it bfore I knew about the cg method, so I'm not sure if it's cg-friendly...
    mostly coarse texture, normal porosity... I think?
