Sabino Moisture block

c234everc234ever Posts: 19Registered Users
Has anyone tried Sabino Moisture block? Specifically has anyone with 4a/4b hair tried this product with great results? Its supposed to promise no frizz because it is supposedly not WATER SOLUBLE. So when it is humid outside, its not supposed to frizz at all. Im a little skeptical to use it so I was wondering has anyone with my hair type tried it...or just anyone at all...lol.

    It's amazing, I love it. I go to www.gotfrizz.com and get it. They're also giving out free samples there too!

    If it isn't water-soluble and it BLOCKS water from being absorbed in your hair, wouldn't your hair just dry out? Doesn't hair need moisture?

    I wouldn't use it.
    I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.

    I just ordered a sample yesterday but didn't know the ingredients. If it's CG I'm saving it for summer.

    This is how I use it. I prepoo the night before, wash, condition, dc with my shescentit avocado conditioner. Then I wash it out, leave a little conditioner in for moisture purposes (my conditioner does not have protein), then I put in a little butter (sometimes avocado butter, sometimes Qhemet biologics Amla and olive cream butter), and then I seal with coconut oil. I then put on the moisture block. I only tried it after researching because I was afraid of the same thing happening. What it does is this, most products actually dissipate over time, that's why we as minorities (aamerican 4a over here) keep putting in moisture. The Moisture block locks in the moisture, it puts a shield over it until the next wash. That's what I was told and that's why I tried it. It also keeps out the moisture from the outside, while blocking in the moisture we put in during washing and dcing. So far it is all it says it is and my hair is thriving. I'm past bsl going to mid back, and I'm very suspicious of products. Don't get me wrong I love trying new stuff, but I don't want any set backs, you know? With african American hair we have to be very careful what we put on it, if we want to maintain length and health. That's my speal on that. Oh and I use the denman brush to brush it through and make sure to brush through my conditioner too. I normally don't use brushes, but this one works on natural hair to smooth it out. I only use it AFTER detangling with a comb. I think it's on sallybeauty.com and you can get it for like 8 bucks. The Denman and mB are the two products I don't rotate and think are indispensible

    Just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents on this stuff. I tried it years ago and threw it away, since I thought it did nothing for my hair and I went CG for awhile so it clearly became "the enemy." I saw your post and after reading some of the rave reviews, I decided to give it another shot. Turns out, after reading more about it, I had been using it wrong. I ordered the free samples and tried them last night.

    First off, I have 3A/3B maybe even a little 3C underneathe. My hair is really thick and layered. The longest layer is to the middle of my back-ish, so I've got a lot of hair. I've gotten into straightening again lately (I needed a change :) ) I showered last night, left a little B2B Pom condish on the ends, towel dried, then added some JC Nourish and Shine to the ends as well. I used a quarter size amount of the Moisture Block, which I thought would be a good amount considering the thickness of my hair. I went to bed and let it air dry. I woke up and naturally my hair was a mess. I realized I put too much MB in--you really do only need to use a TINY bit of this stuff, which makes the price a little easier to digest. I decided to run the flat iron over it anyway just to see what it'd do. Though my hair does look a bit greasy on the ends, it straightened so easily! One stroke of the iron (I have a Maxiglide and I set it to 7...even though Sabino says to use the highest setting, as it won't damage your hair with the MB...10 scares me) and my hair was STICK STRAIGHT. I got my whole head done in less than 10 min. Then the ultimate test: exposing my hair to steam. I stood in the bathroom while my fiance showered. I stayed in there until the room was so full of steam I felt sweaty and couldn't see myself in the mirror anymore. The result? My hair did nothing. Absolutely nothing. AMAZING. I think I'm a believer. I can't wait to try it out again- next time with less product so I don't look so greasy :) and on a humid day.

    I am so glad that this product was bought up! As, I just started using it! It really does waterproof the hair. I actually can testify to this, as the first time that I used this stuff it was raining cats and dogs out and my hair stayed frizz free the whole day.

    I cleanse and condition my hair first. Second, I part my hair in sections. Third, I spray my hair with my liquid leave-in detangler/moisuturizer detangle, and apply a pea-sized amount of the Sabino Moisture Block to it. Once finished, I just move on to the next section and repeat the same process all over again. And, after I have detangled, and aplied product to all remaining sections of my hair, I then pull my hair back into a low bun. And, I next wrap a satin scarf around my head and just let my hair airdry.

    I like to let my hair airdry overnight vsersus using a blowdryer to blow dry my hair straight. As, I personally try to limit how much direct heat is applied to my hair. Now, the next day, I take off the headscarf and take down my hair out of the bun. After that, I section my hair off again and then begin flatironing my hair straight section by section.

    Once I have finished flatironing all sections, I then take a small amount of the Sabino Moisture Block and rub it all throughout my hair. Importantly,
    I do this in order to finish off my style, add shine to my hair, and completely lock out frizz.

    BTW, this product is best used in small amounts. Because, if you use to much then you will risk having your hair come out greasy feeling and limp.

    i have kind of a blend of 3a/3b hair, and I was wondering if this would make my hair look/feel greasy and if it would force me wash it sooner than normal? (I can sometimes go 4-5 days while it's straight)
  • curlybrunette5curlybrunette5 Posts: 264Registered Users
    I go 5 days when I straighten (I won't allow myself to wash it before then because I'm trying really hard to be nicer to my hair :) ). I use this stuff and it makes no difference in the greasies.

    I have short fine curly (3a) hair. I just let my hair air dry usually and was wondering if this product would keep my hair from getting too curly or frizzy on humid days.

    Thanks, Karen

    FYI, I ordered the moisture block on Amazon, and with shipping I purchased it for cheaper than from the sabino website, I believe I got it here within the week of ordering it for about $21. I know on the website, just the product itself is about $21, then of course add the shipping. So if you want to treat yourself, I say check out Amazon.

    I got it cheaper on eBay than at the actual Sabino website too.

    I've been using Sabino Loc and Blok for 6 years and I love it. It's the only heat protectant I use on my type 4a hair! And because it works like it says it should, I've gone from shoulder length hair to waist length hair. Granted I use around a quarter size of L&B on each section of my hair because my hair is so thick. But it protects my hair from very high heat from the blow drying and flat ironing at the salon. Just apply your leave in conditioner before you apply L&B and that's all you'll need for straight, glossy hair that lasts for weeks (or until you wash it out).
