Product Review—As I Am Coconut Cowash & Dark and Lovely 10-in-1 Styles Gelee


Hola!  Today’s product review is with As I Am Coconut Cowash & Dark and Lovely 10-in-1 Styles Gelee.  After reading so many great reviews about As I Am products I had to snatch it up when I saw it at Target.  I received the Dark and Lovely Gelee in my Curl Box a month ago and I’ve been wanting to try out their new au natural line *remember their product launch I attended*.  Peep the pics and review below.

Damp hair after the cowash waiting while it air dries with Dark and Lovely Styles Gelee.

2nd day hair- The finished looked had my curlz poppin and shining but crunchy. I think I used to much Gelee.
3rd day hair- I’ve been fluffing my curlz and most of the crunchiness is gone but a little frizzy. It is ok as I wanted big hair. I am still hating these layers though….huh never again!
The consistency is semi-thick and creamy with a coconut smell. The directions says to work it through the hair and it is suppose to make detangling a breeze. It dissolved into my hair but it didn’t add a lot of slip while detangling. Overall it gets the job done but I wouldn’t say that it provided outstanding results. I will continue to use the jar until it is gone perhaps my mind will change by then.
I finished my look with the Gelee. Even though they suggests to use this product with bantu knot outs, twist outs and more; I rarely do any of those because my WNG gives me the same look. The consistency of this products was really sticky, it reminded me of Kinky Curly. I worked it though my hair in sections and let it air dry. It left my hair with great curl definition but I didn’t like the crunchy feeling.

Overall both products did what was expected however with a bit more.  Although I had ups and downs I think that this duo when used together gets a 6 out of 10.  This was my first time using both products perhaps with a few more uses the results will be different, as I may try them with different styles.  Stay tuned for additional results/previews.  🙂

    1. Hi Natasha! I like the cowash but later found out the gelee doesn’t work for my hair. I am not sure if it was an allergic reaction or what but the next day I had a extremely dry scalp and flakes also. I can totally relate to what you said. Thanks for stopping by and please do so again!
