Really Deep Conditioning Treatment
Three-Layer Growth Oil and Strengthening Creme
As with all the other products in this line I've tried, the Three-Layer Growth Oil smells great. You must shake it well before each application for it to blend well. Otherwise, you can see the heavier oil sitting on the bottom of the bottle. Now, this product gave me pause because it contains mineral oil. I've questioned whether mineral oil is truly bad before. Petroleum, definitely, but in doing my own research, it appears that mineral oil is not evil. This is one of those products that will work well for some, but not for others. Because mineral oil isn't that good of a penetrator, I can't give this product two thumbs up because it left my hair feeling heavy. I'd give it about one-and-a-half thumbs up because it did make my hair very soft. However, one of my friends uses a product that contains mineral oil and she loves it. So take this one for what it's worth; if it works for you, by all means, continue to use it -- if not, there are plenty of other products out there to try.
Next, the Strengthening Creme. This is a suitable daily hair conditioner that, with proper usage, can help maintain your hair's moisture level, leading to fewer split ends and breakage. I suggest applying as needed. If your hair feels soft and supple, there's no need to apply more product. In many cases, once your hair has a good moisture/protein balance, you'll find yourself needing to use less product.
Daily Growth Lotion
Like the Strengthening Creme, this is a good daily moisturizer. It's thick and creamy, so women with relaxed hair should apply sparingly in order to maintain a light and bouncy feel. Focus application more on the ends of your hair, especially if they tend to be dry.
