When it comes to hair, you girls know, Milly does not PLAY! Remember when I named mine. Hair products have to be exceptionally great for me to talk about them. Linette (that's my hair) is highlighted now, so I can really tell if a product is crap or if it actually works. I've been testing out black 15 in 1 hair shampoo/conditioner for about a month and a half now, and these products (although expensive) actually do a pretty great job. I love the whole concept of black 15 in 1. They say you're only supposed to wash your hair twice a week, and that's exactly what I do. I never wash my hair more-never! (Well except if I'm at the pool or beach.) The fact is over-washing your hair will lead to dry, un shiny, brittle, over-stripped, hair. Two times a week is enough, mamas, and any hairstylist will tell you that. A few things Milly loves about this product: 1) Doesn't contain sulfates or parabens 2) contains panthenol b5 which adds shine (and boy does it! my highlighted hair looks insanely shiny after I use this.) 3) Contains Argan oil, and sunflower seed extract. The key to this product is that it's supposed to maintain your hair for a while, so you only have to wash it twice a week. The shampoo is excellent, leaves my hair very soft and although the conditioner is kind of thick, it does a great job of detangling, smoothing it down, but not weighing it down. Just an fyi, if you don't want your hair to be heavy or weighed down, never ever use conditioner near your scalp. I only use conditioner mid hair and down. The scent of these products are not overwhelming at all. After rinsing the product you no longer smell them. After blowdrying or rollersetting your hair, you'll have serious body, bounce and shine. Both the conditioner and shampoo get an A. These would probably get an A+ if I loved the price, but for me $20.00 for a shampoo and $20.00 for a conditioner is a lot.

PS: I'm sorry I haven't been blogging lately. I'm now working on the October issue of Cosmo for Latinas which is going to be AMAZING and prepping for a new segment so I've been a little crazed.
