Happy Saturday! Ya’ll ready to watch the 49ers whoop some aaazzzzzzz tomorrow!? …you know you really just wanna see Beyonce lol smh
Did you catch the announcement from Karen’s Body Beautiful the other day?! Well if you haven’t heard, KBB will be sold in Target THIS month! I am very excited about this because I have been a huge, LONG time fan of her stuff (since ’08!) and my all-time fav product from KBB is the beloved Sweet Ambrosia (formerly known as Hair Milk) This is hands down my fav Leave-in conditioner to date. I LOVE how you can choose your scent (if you order directly from their website). It’s sold in two sizes, 7.1oz for $16 or 16 oz. for $24. You can get it in the Lavender Vanilla scent from CurlMart (and of course Target soon too!!) I received the lavender vanilla scent in my gift box from KBB. It smells very lush and yummy! It’s not heavy or over bearing, I smell more of the vanilla than the lavender but all the scents I’ve tried are really good…..even though some of my favs are discontinued :o( but the scent kind of lingers in your hair for a couple days which I love!
You’re only a few dabs away from lush, radiant, soft hair. Sweet Ambrosia moisturizes, detangles and defines your tresses. Dry, super thick hair needs this amazing leave-in conditioner! Apply a generous amount to hair when damp or dry to refresh and moisturize. Can be used several times a week or daily. Use before you apply heat (flat ironing, blow drying, etc.).
Purified Water, Jojoba, Avocado and Coconut Oils, Vegetable Wax, Panthenol, Arnica, Calendula, Echinacea, Nettle & Horsetail Extracts, Vegetable Glycerin, Wheat Germ Oil, Essential and/or Fragrance Oil, Ascorbic Acid & Vitamin E. Paraben Free, Protein Free, Silicone Free, Sulfate Free
Ok so why do I love this stuff so much? Here’s why, it’s a smooth, milky cream which I’ve always used to do twist outs. It makes my hair SO soft, provides hold AND makes my hair feel like I virtually have nothing in my hair! It gives me those airy, bouncy curls. It’s a really unique product to me because I don’t really use liquid, milky, water base products for twist-outs because they usually don’t provide much hold and my hair always get frizzy. I usually have to use products that are thicker butters but THIS for some reason gives me awesome results AND hold! The only other product I’ve tried that came close to this is the Koils By Nature Moisturizing Shealoe Leave-in Conditioner.
My hair is so incredibly soft, almost buttery, frizz-free and there is virtually no residue or tack on my hair, so my hair is super light, not weighed down. I love this in the summer months when It is warm so my head stays a bit cooler lol. I apply this to damp hair and it has really great slip so it distributes well and CLUMPS my curls which I love! It really saturates my hair during application which is great because my hair is really thick yet it absorbs in my hair fairly fast so I don’t have to worry about my hair being damp the next morning. It makes detangling a BREEZE, I usually finger detangle as I do my twists and this just makes it so easy :o) The ingredients are amazing of course and I love that it contains horsetail and nettle extracts. It does contain glycerin but I never have issues with glycerin, in both humid and dry climates. This just gives me great hair all year round, every time I use it :o)
I have nothing negative to say about this product except perhaps the price point. Yes, it is in the higher price range but this has always been something I made sure I saved up for :o) I also always got the smaller size (7 oz it used to be 8 oz for some reason though…..) and it lasted a good while because you don’t need much. When this was the only product I used on my hair, my hair was SO healthy, it was so full of life, shiny and healthy, I really don’t know why I stopped using it to be honest lol ….adding it back in rotation for sure though!
Here’s my hair twisted ***Side Bar — I like to show how I part and twist my hair to you guys because I always wonder how other curlies make their hair fall a certain way…the key is how you part your hair and which direction you make the twists! I don’t like my hair in my face so I tend to twist my hair going back (it’s more comfortable to wear a scarf at night that way as well). I opted for the center part this time since my hair has become much stronger there and my scalp is no longer as tender :o)
Here’s the fresh untwisted, fluffed first day hair! First day hair is always a hit or miss for me, no matter what product I use (am I the only one this happens to??) but when I re-twist, it almost ALWAYS looks better to me. Here’s my hair the next day. I re-twisted my hair at night by spritzing my hair AND scalp with a tea mixture of horsetail, burdock, lemongrass, nettle and peppermint teas (yea I know that sounds OD lol but remember I started drinking these teas? Well I was feeling a bit creative lol and inspired by a reader who uses them in her spritzer as well hehe) and a little bit of coconut oil to seal in the moisture. I love that I don’t need to reapply the Sweet Ambrosia for the rest of the week. I just spritz and re-twist and my hair feels the same way every day. It’s just a really consistent product. Here’s the next day! (I like it better than the first day but my hair FELT GREAT on both days!)
I feel like these pics don’t do my hair justice, it looks a LOT better in person and FEELS even that much better! Trust me! But yes I love me some KBB Sweet Ambrosia and am so excited to be able to buy it on the ground soon! I have some more KBB products to share with you guys so staaaaaaaaaaaay tuned!
