Dear Delilah,

I don’t know what your problem is. You’ve really let yourself go. You’re itchy, flaky, and making me look bad! You’re supposed to be soft, curly, and shiny…But you’re dry and crunchy. You look like a bad wig. You smell weird! I can’t believe that after all we’ve been through, you have the nerve to walk around looking like that. Split ends hanging all out and dull as can be!

What am I saying? It must be my fault. Did I use a new product you didn’t like? Was it the Ecostyler or that random ‘Pudding’ my mother bought? Maybe I was in the sun too long. Maybe I over-shampoo’d. Do you want more coconut oil or water, or both? I’m sorry I have been busy and forgetful. You haven’t been moisturized with creme or covered at night…Not even a bit of water sprayed on you, poor thing!

I promise I’ll change, my dear! In fact, you need a good deep condition and detangle. Forget that party tonight! It’s all about you baby. I’ll make sure you’re trimmed and protected well, and I’ll never let you down again!

I love you,
Faye

Product Review

The Queen Helene Cholesterol Hot Oil Treatment:

 

 

Ingredients : Water, Proplyene Glycol, PPG-12-PEG-65 Lanolin Oil, Coleth 2, Ceteth 24(cholesterol), Polyquatumium-10, Cetrimonium Chloride, Polysorbata 20, Disodium EDTA, Methlparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Caramel, Fragrance.

What I like: It comes in a convenient tube , that you just place in warm water. I also like the top if you have any left overs you can just turn over the top and store it for another use. It is also pretty cheap. I believe about three dollars per tube and you can get 3-6 treatments depending on how much you use it.

What I don’t like : The main ingredient is water.  I would expect an oil to be the main ingredient.   It is a hot oil treatment.

Does it work for my hair – Nope. I should have known from the first ingredient and how it just disappeared when I was rubbing it between my fingers that this would do nothing for my hair.  When I put it on it, it bubbled on my head. It kind of reminded me of soap.   When I was massaging my scalp afterwards,  it just felt like I just put water on my hair. Afterward, when I rinsed it out, my hair felt so dry and harsh, my scalp just felt the same. Usually, after a hot oil treatment I can feel a big improvement, my hair is softer and my scalp just feels moisturized.

Would I use it again? Nope.
