PRODUCT: Donna Marie Cocoa Hemp Buttercream, 4 oz., $10.00.
AVAILABLE AT: Beauty by Donna Marie website.
APPLICATION: While in the shower, I rinsed my hair thoroughly then fingercombed a quarter-sized amount of the Ultimate Slip Detangler throughout and put wet hair in a Scrunchie. I did not squeeze out excess water. I continued to shower and ten minutes later, I removed Scrunchie and applied the Cocoa Hemp Buttercream in four sections (two in front, two in back), again not squeezing out excess water. The Cocoa Hemp Buttercream has a light cocoa butter scent. The consistency is light and airy, similar to whipped shea butter.
RESULTS: At the end of the shower, I was pleasantly surprised to see the product had fully absorbed with shrinkage, but good curl definition. I wrapped my hair in an old t-shirt for about 15 minutes to absorb excess water. Although I did not experience the volume I had with the Ultimate Slip Detangler alone, the trade-off was moisturized hair with a healthy shine and mad softness. Take a look!
VERDICT: I’m falling in love with this entire line. Although I experienced shrinkage, which I don’t mind, the Cocoa Hemp Buttercream is an excellent moisturizer and curl definer. We’ve been having some harsh winter weather here in Michigan, but this product will definitely help to keep hair, especially ends, moisturized.
I plan on restocking the Ultimate Slip Detangler, as well as the Cocoa Hemp Buttercream. I’m finding that regardless which Donna Marie product I use, I get second-day hair. A lot of Donna Marie’s products are currently sold out, but will be restocked in January. Stay tuned for my reviews of the Lock & Twist Pudding and Honey & Aloe Curling Jelly.
