Review: So if any of you follow Naptural85 on YouTube you already know that she totally raves about this product. I seen her video a few months ago where she explained how she discovered it and I immediately wanted to try it until...I read that it was not recommended for chemically treated (relaxed or colored) hair. Interested in how an all natural organic product could be bad for chemically treated hair I decided to do a little more research. Upon viewing the Terressentials FAQs on their site I discovered the reason this wash was not recommend for chemically treated hair was simply because it would not provide the same feeling of having healthy hair as synthetic products do. Since I only have a small section of hair that is colored and I normally use all natural hair products I figured using the mud wash wouldn't be so bad but I really wanted to try the product before purchasing my own. Then my ever so gracious curlfriend and head Kinky Peach, Monique sent me some to try. Now let me tell you, she absolutely loves this stuff so it was definitely out of the kindness of her heart that she shared it with me! Anywho, back to the review, I used the product Saturday evening to cleanse my hair. I did not pre-poo, I just soaked my hair with water and applied the wash to a small section of hair, detangled, and twisted until my entire head was covered with product and in twist. I let it sit on my hair for about 30 minutes and then with the twist still in I rinsed the mud wash out until the water ran clear. Soon as I touched my hair I knew this was a little bottle of goodness. My hair was amazingly soft and felt so clean. I have never been able to cleanse my hair (relaxed or natural) and feel like I did not need a conditioner until now. After cleansing my hair I applied a small amount of a leave-in and sealed with a shea butter mix and the next day my hair still felt so freakin soft!!
Summary: So clearly this is my initial review of the Terressentials Organic Pure Earth Hair Wash as I've only used the product once however, I truly believe me and this wash will have a lasting relationship. I can use it and not feel like I'm cheating on Reve' Essentials since we do not offer a similar product. So until we do this will be my wash of choice. As always please do your own research and make a decision on what is best for you and your hair!
