Review: I love Tug Me Not Conditioner! A had worn her hair in a puff/two puffs for just over one week. (which is why her hair looks like that in the "before" pictures) I detangled her hair once during that time and added 4 two strand twists in the front. Since her hair was like that for so long, I thought our detangling session would be longer than usual. After rinsing the Silky Swirls Shampoo I applied the Tug Me Not Conditioner to her hair and much to my surprise we had a super easy detangling session! This conditioner had great slip.
The Claim: A gentle, moisturizing, conditioning and curl defining butter cream. Enriched with shea butter, chamomile and aloe, for smoothing, defrizzing and defining curls. Silk and Beantree create body and shine even on defiant frizzies. Wearing your hair down and out has never been easier!

Review: OH-EM-GEE! (Yes I said that outloud, I really wanted to say THIS IS THE BOMB! But, who says the bomb anymore? lol Ok, I do!) I think we have a new staple! Down & Out Styles is amazing! I have been recommending this product ever since we tried it. This is a heavy product and has a very thick consistency. This product is true to its claim! The name "Down & Out" is perfect. A's hair was moisturized, soft, frizz free. I mean, if it's frizz free curl definition you are looking for then say Hellooooooo to Down & Out Styles! I am very pleased with this product, definitely a new favorite. I love the smell of this by the way. I can go on and on about this one, but I'll just let the pictures speak for themseleves....
Down & Out consistency:
Before: Remember, her hair was in one/two puffs for just over 1 week with 4 two strand twists in the front.
She was one happy camper...lol
A loves swinging her curls...
Ok so now we get to the best part. A went to bed with her hair all out, no satin bonnet, no satin pillowcase (I'm slipping, I know) and she woke up with her curls still looking great! Now my baby is a wild sleeper, so for her hair to still have very little frizz *the NEXT morning* is crazy! I added a bow and let her wear her hair down to school. :)
Now do you see why I am absolutely in love with these products? Especially the Down & Out Styles. You know when you like a product so much that you just have to tell everyone? Well, right after I used these products on A's hair I immediately went on one of my favorite hair boards and told everyone about it! (Ladies, you can vouch for that!) Listen, don't sleep on that 25% Down & Out Styles deal at CurlMart I can't wait to try this product on twists. It's a little pricey, but seeing how this is one of the best product lines I've used on her hair, I think it's well worth it.
