Hey loves! I recently agreed to be part of a paid test study for a well known hair company (we'll just call it "Brand X"). Now prior to agreeing to be part of the study I had no idea that my hair would undergo such stress! Allow me to elaborate... Brand X is testing a possibly new haircare system that promises versatility for natural haired beauties (the ability to go from straight to curly and back with no issues). It's a natural system very similar to Chi Enviro.
Now, with all of that being said this study occurred near the end of the summer. It is applied to the hair as a serum after a clarifying shampoo is used. Hair is then blow dried and (hold your breath) flat ironed. I was truly impressed with the fact that my hair was able to stay straight in wet, humid weather - so yes, it did what it was supposed to. However, when it was time for me to go back to my natural curly hair, it did NOT revert. I was left with dead, loose waves rather than my bouncy spiral curls.
This is my current situation: I feel as if I'm transitioning ALL over again (my hair lays STRAIGHT when I attempt to detangle with my beloved Denman brush). I refuse to chop therefore I'm re-starting this hair journey all over again. At the moment I've been wearing twist-outs (which only last about a
day or 2). My hair lacks volume and body - it feels thin. I'm on a natural hair journey to bring it back
