It's a pre-poo, so it's applied before you shampoo your hair, I do pre-poo's often, it's something within black culture we're use to, hot oil treatments etc so it's nothing out of the ordinary for me. This packet of 2 sachets are more than enough for the hair as it's only applied to the mids and ends but I run left overs around my back where it can also get dry.
The great thing about this treatment is the ingredients - all natural: Coconut, Olive, Almond, Avocado and Amla Oil with a natural vanilla fragrance - all ingredients I already have within my home lol but having it mixed up already is handy. Coconut oil I stopped using because it's comedogenic meaning it clogs pores - they say if you use extra virgin and not regular you won't have that issue but I only use EVCO...hmmm. Using the first packet, I did get a spot on my hairline around the back of my head but it went down but that's not the products fault.

I didn’t find the shampoo to be stripping but it cleansed the hair well and the conditioner has a good slip to it that when I used my curly tangle teezer through my hair it brushed through with the ultimate ease. I would then squeeze out the excess water and use the Noughty Intensive Care Leave-in Conditioner and put it in the AQUIS hair towel (which is amazing) as it helps to absorb the water without drying the hair out, no friction and zero frizz.
Just a moment...take time to appreciate the zero frizz as the hair dries...
While the hair is still damp, I apply my hair cream and oil, then diffuse. I’ve had the best hair week, my hair has stayed hydrated, soft and defined curls right up until the next wash day, very unusual. I kept my hair mostly in loose buns on top of my head but it seemed to work and I would just apply a little cream on the ends to keep them moisturised and to prevent them getting dry and breaking.
The range is affordable, coming in at £6.99 each it's a lot cheaper than other brands I've used and with it being available in Superdrug, handy for me to pick up too. While Hairaputix starts from £5.99.One less thing to stress about 😏
