Growing out natural hair is no easy task. I should know, this is my second time doing this. There’s always that awkward in between stage when your hair is not really short but not really long either. So hair styling options are often limited to a short ponytail or letting it all hang loose.
One hair problem in this transformation is the frizz factor. Having curly coils, especially on a rainy day, can have us curly-haired ladies ducking for cover. I try to tame the frizz, while managing to keep a somewhat tame corporate hairstyle, with gels and natural moisturizers. I usually use shea butter or coconut oil, and while they moisturize they certainly do not hold any style. So this is where I reach for my gels to tame the frizzy fly aways but I’m not a fan of stiff hair. Oh the beauty dilemmas!
Well recently I received a sample of Jonathan’s Silky Dirt Shine & Define Crème. The formula is 100% vegan and cruelty-free and said to “texturize, define and shine with a smooth, lasting finish.” So of course I put it to the test!
Perfect for dull or damaged hair, this grooming creme helps me create amazing supermodel shine plus sexy, natural hair definition. The best part is I can use it on damp hair for extra control or on dry hair for a smooth, lasting finish. ~Jonathan
This creme was great around my hairline where I tend to notice stray, frizzy pieces. And it was also great to use while smoothing my hair down in a neat ponytail. The creme is quite thick, almost like a rich hand cream with a slight hint of vanilla (?). I love how it instantly gave stray hair enough weight to lay down gently and the formula left my hair soft, not crunchy of stiff. While I’ll say that the creme did give my hair a more polished look, I can’t say that it looked any shinier. My hair looked pretty much the same to me, flat. The creme does provide fine hair with a bit more control and definition without leaving it stiff like most gels or hairspray. But I just wish that it delivered the total package.
Have your tried Jonathan;s Silky Dirt Shine & Define Creme?
