This weekend, I revisited Generic Matrix Biolage Conditioning Balm (Sallys Beauty). I used it as a moisturizing deep conditioner yesterday after henna’ing, and as a styler for my Twist-n-Curl. So far, it’s performing well. I’ll report back later this evening with pics and a full review.
To see my original review, scroll through this Naturallycurly.com thread.
Randomness: Is anyone else moderately offended by the Obama Chia Pet Head? I saw the commercial last night and was rendered utterly speechless.

maybe im trippin but i think i remember seeing Biolage at CVS? I'll have to check. I didnt want to look too long b/c Im super broke lol.
im not really fazed or offended by the chia pet. I havent seen the commercial (dont watch tv anymore) but it does sound a little ridiculous. i wont be buying it… ever.
Im still waiting for the Bush pinata to come to a hood near me! now THOSE will sell out… QUICKLY
Yeah I am offended but I just imagine it will be one more thing people who make fun of their own natural curly/kinky will use to describe it. Along with clown hair, troll doll hair, bush hair, pubic hair etc. When they unleash the afro- "OMG I have chia pet hair."
I think as a whole people need to realize a lot of our cultural icons are built on African Americans and our physical features. And even if they aren't, it's beyond ridiculous to associate our hair to a troll doll or a clown. One came way after the other. And I think people forget that can go both ways. For every person who calls curly hair "poodle hair" it's like that forget most animals have straight hair, is straight hair to be called rat hair? For every straight haired person who says "Wow you look like you got hit by a bolt of lightening." to someone with kinky hair that grows outwards and upwards we could say to a them "Wow you look like you got run over by a steam roller and your hair was flattened."
I look forward to the day kinky textired hair isn't likened to any doll, plant, animal, natural disaster, monster, comic book character, party entertainment, disease, and can just be the hair growing out of our scalp.
Uh, yeah. I've been seeing that commercial for awhile and each time I can only shake my head!
I tried this once…I can't remember the results though lmao Finally a conditioner I already have in my arsenal!!! I guess I'll try it again this weekend.
Wow, that's just… wow.
Some things (like the office of the presidency) should not be messed with like that. People have no respect anymore, it's disgusting.
