It really works!!
I purchased the sealer and curly pudding this past weekend at the Atlanta World Natural Hair Show. Let me tell you, I co washed yesterday and applied the searler and curly pudding and it really is doing the job!! It is over 85 degrees today, and my hair still looks like it did this morning!!! On my lunch break I purchased the Co-Wash from at Sallys!!! Thank you!! I love Nothing But.... EVERYTHING!!!
Definitely a Keeper
I only hang on to products which do not flake and are interactive with products outside of their line. I saw louloumatou's YouTube review, read your website and checked around and found Toyaboo2's review. Toya's interview with Will and product review were very well done. She did a little investigative research on her own to bring us all the facts. Yesterday, I did a wash and go with the curly pudding then turned it into a twist out for today. I got great results both ways. My twist out is curly rather than fluffy and has held all day. Since I get about 50 to 75 percent shrinkage, I would rather have shiny springy well defined curls than dry sage brush fluff in this humidity any day. Toya said the Wake-Up spray along with the curly pudding are the bomb. My next purchase will be the spray. Thanks for making a great affordable product that works.
I just did a review for the Shampoo but I wanted to do one for this one as well as the Curl Sealer next.
So firstly I have 3c/4a-c coils and curls. I had just washed with the shampoo and that went great so was excited to see how the pudding would go. So after wrapping my hair in a White T-Shirt and waiting for about 5 minutes I tried out their pudding. It's somewhere in bewteen light and heavy, it goes on very white and you do have to rub it in [well I did] but once it was in my hair it was great, my hair was very soft and smooth after applying and my curls were very coily and cute but importantly moisturized. Check the Curl Sealer for my final review of the product line.
I purchased this product at the Atlanta hair show last weekend. Today was my first time using it; a wash & go. It smells really good lemon/lime-ish. It's white creamy not too thick. It applied nicely, I didn't feel like I needed to use a lot to get the job done. When it dried my hair was very soft, light and fell nicely in my style :) I had defined curls and little shrinkage. I still had frizz but it wasn't bad. Overall, this is not the best product ever - but I was pleased with my results and I'd certainly purchase it again! Great price/really good product.
LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!! I got the line at a natural hair meetup. I liked the fact that I received at least 3 full sized products. I put them on a shelf; not really knowing when or if I’d ever use them. I finally used the curl wake up spray and curly pudding using the LOC method. While twisting my hair, I could see the intense shine my hair had. When I woke up the next morning & took down my twists, I couldn't believe what I saw. My hair has NEVER looked so shiny or defined. I've been natural for 3 years and no other product has worked the way this has. My twist out is lasting more than it usually does. I pineapple’d my twist out before bed & slapped on a bonnet. My hair is still as moisturized & defined as it was on day one. I’m SO happy I’ve finally found something that works!
