I was in Miami this weekend where people are allowed to smoke in clubs. Between the humidity and my porous hair I smelled like an ashtray. My hair sucked up all the smoke and the humidity made it a little damp which sealed it all in. Yesterday morning the smell was overbearing. I got home late last night and didn't have time to wash my hair so I used some of the Amla and Olive to moisturize and went to bed. Today I was talking to one of my classmates and she kept saying she smelled cookies. As we are trying to locate (hopefully) free cookies, (we're broke grad students), she says, "It's you. It's your hair!" I didn't believe the smoke smell could be gone until another classmate said, "no your hair does smell sweet" and then I checked for myself. They were absolutely right. My hair smells kind of like a lemon cookie. When I got home I really shook my hair out to see if the smoke was buried underneath. There are no traces of smoke or any other unpleasant smell. This is great news for anyone whose style lasted beautifully but has been a victim of smoke evaporation. You can both moisturize and freshen the scent of your curls. I think Qhemet is a definite keeper and will make many a curly happy.
Below are some before and after pics. The first pics (before) are of my hair in Miami (fuzzy wuzzy). I used my Curlisto products for a wash & go before I left for the trip. Unfortunately I didn't have enough gel and had to improvise a little. As you can see improvising didn't go well, lol.
I love the big hair but the lack of definition and my poor hair sucking up every bit of humidity it could get... Awful!
The last two pics (After) are from my twist set with Devacurl, shea and Qhemet as my daily moisturizer. Qhemet is good stuff!
