Why You’ll Love It (or not)
Since making the decision to jump back into the world of relaxers, I’ve been on the hunt for products that will help protect the integrity of my delicate chemically-treated strands. In walks Phyto Specific Cleansing Care Cream; after receiving it I immediately thought that it was for curly hair types. I was pleased to learn that it was also developed to work on relaxed hair types.
Three reasons why I love this cleansing cream:
The idea of seeing bubbles when you wash your hair is purely a mental thing because the experts say that shampoos don’t need them, and this cleansing cream doesn’t, which I think I love. Call me a creature of habit, but bubbles make me happy and they also make me think that my hair is getting even cleaner as a result…not the case at all, so not seeing them was a bit of an adjustment. I’m also into the no (Anionic) surfactant feature, which is known to dry out curly hair types. And last, but not least? It thoroughly and effectively cleans and conditions my hair in one step. Not one complaint here ladies…this cleansing cream is a must-purpose for coily, curly, and relaxed hair types – the latter being the tribe I currently subscribe to.
