I'm All Over This One...


The beautiful ladies of NaturallyCurly.com are singing the praises of a new conditioner-- EO. After checking out the (yummy) ingredients, and reading the rave reviews, a PJ run to Whole Foods made it to the top of tomorrow's 'to do' list!

According to the forum members, all of the conditioners in the line are moisturizing and slippery (yay!! thanks to the behentrimonium methosulfate). The two that came most highly recommended are the Rose & Chamomile, and Chamomile & Honey. The thickness and moisurizing properities of the Chamomile and Honey conditioner has been likened to my beloved DevaCare One Condition. I'm all over this one...can't wait to try it!

You can pick the EO line up at Whole Foods, and apparently TJ MAXX and Marshalls! They double as a leave-in/styler and deep conditioner.

Later Gators,
Nik


UPDATE 10/14/2009 (9am):

My PJ is raging this morning! I called WFs and they don't carry the EO hair products, only the body. I just ordered 2 bottles from Iherb and will make a run by TJ MAXX and Marshalls within the hour, lol. I haven't done my hair in a minute, and I'd love to try this conditioner tonight. I'll keep you posted!

Later :)

UPDATE #2 10/14/2009 (5pm):

I've got a confession to make...my PJism today is scarily reminiscent of how bad it used to be. I'm ashamed to say it, but I've officially relapsed...and it feels so good!

In my quest to track down this oh so elusive conditioner, I called 10 stores--3 Whole Foods, 4 TJ Maxx's, and 3 Marshalls. It sucked so bad--repeating myself to unsuspecting sales folk, being placed on hold for what felt like hours, and receiving the 'nope...we don't carry that' response. Just when my hopes were dashed and spirit crushed, Regina in Whole Body at Durham's Whole Foods says, 'Yes...we have EO Rose and Chamomile Conditioner. Would you like me to hold it for you?' Uh...yeah, lol.

Now, Durham is about a 30 minute ride from my house and to make matters worse, today it is cold, dreary, and rainy. Most people would let this deter them...but not me! I hopped in the car to begin my 25 mile trek, when I called my favorite curly girlfriend Nadeira, to see what she was up to. After hearing the details of my mission, she volunteered to jump on board. Road trip! I immediately called Regina back and told her to put a second bottle on hold!

We got there, secured the goods, and spent another 45 minutes talking ourselves out of other products that managed to sneak their way into our carts. In the end, I walked out of WF with one product--EO Rose and Chamomile Conditioner. I left the Kinky Curly Spritz behind...the old Nik would've never done that.

On the way home, I stopped at Walgreens to pick up some Totally Twisted. For some reason, they don't carry that line, so I grabbed a bottle of Herbal Essence's Hydralicious (finally right?!). By this time, I'm practically shaking with anticipation to try not one, but two new conditioners!!! Good times...

Fast forward 20 minutes, and I'm in the shower. I loaded up with Hydralicious...the smell is yummy and the consistency and detangling power is very similar to Totally Twisted. No better, no worse. Excellent, excellent conditioner :-) I rinsed it all out, and reached for the EO. O M G!

The fragrance is light, pleasant, and clean...very herbal. It's white in color, and is the consistency of Totally Twisted--not too thick, not too thin. It is so friggin' slippery! I swear, the stuff literally melted into my hair. I applied it with a heavy hand, and stepped out of the shower. I made 9 twists, set the ends on rods, and here I sit now :)

I'll report back tomorrow with pictures and a full review.

Later Gators,
Nik

I just ordered/received three of their products...I have the Leave In/Rinse Out Conditioner (French Lavender), Nourishing Shampoo (Rose & Chamomile), and Hydrating Conditioner (Chamomile & Honey)... I will be testing these out this weekend...I will definitely let you know how it goes...

Well, a couple of weeks back, I mentioned that a chamomile infusion is a good conditioner by itself and it has detangling properties also. I usually do mine with some olive oil spread on my hair first, pour the infusion over my hair, then let it marinate for 20-40 minutes. Works very well. I rinse it out afterward.

Never heard of the line, but those conditioners look amazing! Let us know how it works out. I might be stopping by the store too!

Leslie said...

I just checked out the ingredients on the EO website. The Chamomile & Honey condish has behentrimonium methosulfate, jojoba and coconut oils - i'm intrigued!! Good looking out as usual:)

Mrs. AKAtude said...

My Whole Foods store doesn't care them either. Let me know how it goes, I'm definitely interested.

Tina Beanie said...

I just bought two bottles of chamomile & honey..damn you, Nikki! LOL! I also got some of the soap. I put myself on product probation for the rest of the month..*hides*

LBell said...

My budget is far too tight for pj-ism so I live vicariously through you and others. Looking forward to seeing the results.

Queen said...

What a fun trip?!! We should be proud of ourselves given all that was jumping at us from the shelves. It could have easily been a $100 trip....LOL I'm proud of us. As soon as the little one's basketball practice is over I'm racing home to do my hair. Yeah for spontaneous PJ runs!!

Maria said...

Nikki I hate you. I'm going to Whole Foods tomorrow and buying this.

Olive_Honey said...

Maria...

too funny, LOL

Teka said...

OK, Nik - I'm offended - you and Nadeira were in Durham and didn't call me? I had the car today and totally could have gone on a recon mission for you - LOL. Oh, well, I'm headed out of town so will have to wait until next week to try the EO - I love my Durham Whole Foods!

CURLYNIKKI said...

lol, ya'll are hilarious! Sorry for enabling, but this one was too good to pass up :)

@Maria, you know you love me :D You'll thank me later.

@Olivia--girl I'm having a hard time not touching my hair! I'm thinking it's going to dry very clean... so excited :)

@Alicia, my name sake, LOL!

@Anon, sorry chica, that's the name of the game. I promised Deva I'd never cheat on him...he still loves me though, and always lets me come back home.

@Olive Honey, first, I love your screen name. And thanks for the references!

@Tina...sorry girlie! You must report back...send your pics and review stat!

@awalker, I clearly need instant gratification, but I'm sure this tip will do a lot of readers good!

@Lbell and libra08, I love you guys :) And Libra, you might as well wash that set out!

Later chicas! I'll be back bright and early with results...

CURLYNIKKI said...

TEKA!!! I'm so sorry :( You know we love you girl...everything was happening so fast, I didn't even have time to think, lol. Next time ;) Plus, it's about time for drinks...maybe we'll come to your neck of the woods this time. Plus, the hubs is still after that wine and cheese art party!

The old formulas were so much better. I'm sorry you chased this stuff all over town -- they really are nothing special.

Cygnet said...

Y'all gonna make somebody bust a gut :-)! If anyone was confused about why it's called "product junky-ism", Nik's description and more than a few of the responses make it abundantly clear.

Who am I kidding? I'm at least curious. Maybe I won't buy it if I see it, but I'm sure gonna be looking for it now. Hahahahaha :-)!

Wow! Sounds wonderful. I'll be on the lookout for them. ~KF519

I love EO- I found it about 4-5 mos ago and I am in love! I use the lavender leave in condish every day and cant live without it. I also started shampooing again with their sulfate free shampoo, its awesome- no where near the fuzzy/shrinkage I used to get with reg shampoo, none actually. EO is one of my must haves, I never go without it. Here is a vid I did for YT when I first found it.

I use the EO conditioning serum. It works great as a pre conditioner or after you freshly wash and conditioner your hair. I love this product.
