My hair must have it!

Cream leave in conditioners have never been nice to me , deceptively enticing me with their grandeur claims of hydrating and defining my curls but just hanging out on my hair shaft as an opaque film , hmmph! so not a good look. On a trip to CVS, I came across something that caught my eye. The Ellin Lavar detangling mist is filled with antioxidants and botanicals that nourish, soften and moisturize. It is mildly scented, lightweight, works well with my existing conditioner and also refreshes my curls when i skip a shampoo. My Denman brush glides through my hair with no tugs, snags or tears. I love it!!

Ellin Lavar DetangleMist, $7.99

People are always surprised when i tell them about this product. I have been using Smooth n Shine Polishing Curl Activator for years. No, it's not a throwback to the 80's curl revolution, so you wont have stained necklines and sofas. This non greasy, weightless formula defines and smooths my curls. I do add a tiny bit of Ampro gel (black gel to some of you..lol) if i want a strong lasting hold. It has recently been reformulated and i sure hope that despite the extra added ingredients (not needed) it will still deliver good results. It's so inexpensive i usually buy a few jars at a time so i have another couple of months before i try the new formula sigh

  1. Oh my gosh, this is a staple for us. This is one of the products that all 3 (my girls and myself) hair loves. It makes a huge difference in helping to manage our hair.

  2. I'm going to look for this detangling mist this week. I can't wait to give it a try.
