Product Update: Darcy’s Botanicals Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme

Hey everybody!  I haven’t been up to blogging lately due to some major health issues I’ve been putting off, which now have to be addressed.  I just wanted to give a little update on my hair.  If you haven’t purchased any of Darcy’s Botanicals products yet, please try them.  The Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme’s performance is consistent, and has been the one go to product that has made the difference in the health of my hair.  My hair tangles less, has more shine, and is growing like crazy.  I’m definitely a minimalist when it comes to putting products in my hair and love the fact this product lasts a long, long time.     

As my hair grows longer, the more obvious the three hair textures on my head become.  The Madagascar Styling Creme gives each texture exactly what it needs; moisture, shine, or softness.  Take a look.

NAPE:  Where majority of tangles occur.  This is the only part of  my hair that has shine without product.

HEADBAND AREA: Halo of frizz in front, side to side, with mad shrinkage (and gray hairs creeping back in.  lol.).

CROWN: – This area grows the fastest with wavy, loose curls that never tangle.    

I actually don’t have any hair problems to report.   Nope.  Nada.  Nothing.  Since the weather is warmer, shea butter is no longer required, so shampooing weekly not necessary.  My hair is doing fantastic with just these basics.  

  1. Conditioner wash with Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut.
  2. Deep condition with Lustrasilk Aloe Vera Cholesterol (add Agave Nectar or honey), or Pantene Relaxed & Natural Breakage Defense Mask.
  3. Apply Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme from root to tip, or use the Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut + oil as leave-in.

It’s time to restock and Mother’s Day couldn’t have come at a better time.  Anybody try any of Darcy’s Botanicals new products?   If so, let me know which ones and how you like them. The Organic Coconut and Aloe Moisture Pudding is calling my name.

Hopefully I’ll be back blogging on the regular soon.
