Au Natural: Silicon MIX Products

I ended up going to my local Beauty Store to restock on my deep conditioner and ended up leaving with some extra goodies, but that’s beside the point because I spotted another Beauty Store and guess what? They have the same conditioner in an extremely huge jar (I decided I’ll pick that up next time around), because my eyes was on something else—Silicon Mix that is. When I was a kid my cousins would always use this product and word on streets it’s a pretty decent product. Well actually word from the forums lol.

I ended purchasing 3 items from the line. Silicon MIX Intensive Leave-in Hair Shine and Conditioner with Silk Proteins 8oz (2)

So far I tested out the “Intensive Leave-in” product and it’s pretty good in my hair, but just to be more specific I don’t use it on my entire hair. I’m using it only on the perimeter of my hairline (more than just the edge halfway from the center, because my texture is thinner, curls are looser and all those tend to lead towards weak hair at least compared to the rest of my hair). I know the ingredients are pretty scary, but I’m not really too much against it since my mom growing up put grease on my scalp and my hair always been down my back. However, since this product claims to "Protects against the sun" I might rethink how I'm using it :)

If you tried anything from this line leave me your feedback.

Just wondering do anyone have a problem with the smell? It kind of have this weird scent that lingers for a minute.

*au natural = my hair, not the product.
