I was so excited when my products from Original Moxie arrived on Friday. I sat in bed long after I should have been asleep, reviewing each and every product. I admit I was a bit overwhelmed. There were so many choices, I wasn’t sure where to start.
I decided to try a product called Emollience for starters. It smelled heavenly and I liked that I could leave it in overnight for a deep conditioning. The next morning I woke up and washed with Get Clean Shampoo and followed with Intense Quench conditioner. I was pleased with the way my hair felt (not dry) and I loved the way it smelled (like I just left the spa).
It was kinda downhill from there. It was Saturday morning and I was confused about what products to use, so I tried a couple of different things. I ended up using the Luxe Locks and Shape Shifter, and I think I threw in some Hair Bling for good measure. The result was way too much product in my hair, which made my hair look crunchy.
On Sunday, I decided on a different plan of attack. I didn’t wash my hair, as I have heard that shampooing too often can be bad for your hair, so I just rinsed and conditioned. Once I stepped out of the shower I was careful not to comb or manipulate my hair too much. I added shape shifter throughout and let it air dry.
I know from experience that my hair does well in hot weather. So stepping out into the day is just what I needed. For a wash and wear on transitioning hair, I was pleased with how it turned out. It seemed textured (i.e., wavy or curly) throughout, felt soft and had lots of fullness.
Here are a couple of pics of the end result:
Overall, I am happy with my first attempt(s) with using the Original Moxie products. I’ll report back once I have tried using the products with two strand twists. I think once I get into a groove, this is going to be a fun and exciting journey!
