Saturday’s Review—Jane Carter Solution

Hola! I hope that your day is going great.  This is a quick review of the products that I picked up last week at the Transcedence Natural Hair Show.  As I mentioned in my previous post here, I purchased Jane Carter’s Curl Defining Cream and the Revitalizing Leave-in ConditionerThe Curl Defining Cream states that “it prevents curls from shrinking as it dries” and gives “beautiful curls with loads of shine!” 
I washed my hair with  Shea Moisture’s  Curl & Shine Shampoo followed by Aussie Moist Conditioner.  After rinsing my hair clean of all products with the exception of about 20% of conditioner left in; I sprayed the Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner all over.  I then applied the cream to my semi-wet hair.  The mistake I made is that I didn’t shingle the product  in so that I could reach each strand,  instead I basically wiped it on **rushing**.  The consistency of the cream was thick which I like and it went on fairly well.  However, afterwards my hair felt like it at a film on it and that was not cool!  To get rid of that sticky feeling I added more water so that it had more slip.  I ended up wearing my hair in a side puff because I didn’t like the way it looked down.  I am not sure but I think that I would have had better results if I applied it differently and didn’t mix products.  
I have to say on a scale of 1 to 10, this product in my book is about a 6.  I plan to try them out separately, maybe that will give me better end results.  Overall these aren’t bad, so they are worth another go around.  We shall see!

  1. thanks for the review! I was realllllllllly thinking about trying this because I love JC’s leave in conditioner and always use it after washing! I’ve heard from a couple sites that this is not good for protein sensitive hair, so I may not try it now since my hair is protein sensitive :/. I do however love Shea Moisture’s coconut and hibiscus curl cream.. it really defines curls well and has a good price point. thanks for sharing and I hope round 2 works for you! I’ll check back for an update.

    1. No probs, as I was excited to try this too but I was slightly let down. I do plan to give it another go but if I get the same results again, you can best believe that I will be donating it to another natural that it may work for. Thanks for checking my site and please do come back for round 2! BTW—I have checked your site in the past and me likey ;o)

      1. :/ … yes donating it would be great! I posted on CN earlier today for some products that I purchased and didn’t like that I would be willing to donate! Tis the season for giving… glad you like me blog! thanks for visiting and please feel free to follow 😉

  2. I cant wait for the second review. I love jane caters nourish & shine, in fact it is a staple of mine. I’ve been eyeballing the curl defining cream. I must admit it is a bit pricy. But I would still like to give it a go. Keep us posted. And, thanks so much for sharing your thoughts thus far. Take care.
