they say 3rd time’s a charm….Jane Carter Solution Review

Hola peeps!  I hope all is good.  Well you read the post title and all I can say is I beg to differ with that saying.  Much thanks to the Jane Carter Solution team for sending me a travel kit of hair goodies to try.  The kit consisted of shampoo, conditioners (leave-in and reg), curl cream, wrap & roll setting lotion, hair serums, and more!

As you all know from my two previous reviews of their products I didn’t have much luck but I was willing to give it a try yet again.  This time I went for the shampoo and conditioner.  I have been on the lookout for a new poo that gets the job done but in a delicate manner.  The scent is mild and the consistency of the duo is great…not too watery but also not heavy.  I liked that it rinsed out nicely and didn’t leave a sticky film on my hair.  On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give the Moisture Nourishing Shampoo and Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner a 7.  I would definitely try these again.

After my hair was squeaky clean I used a bit of Revitalizing Leave-in Conditioner **pulled from my own stash that i had purchased earlier**, in which I raked through my hair with my fingers.  Last, I finished off with the Curl Defining Cream **personal stash again**.  Ok, I just have to say for the last time this product doesn’t work on my hair.  I think that my 3c/4a hair type just rejects it.  It literally sits on my hair and I have to work hard for it to really blend in.  I don’t know about you guys but when I use a cream curl I love for it to melt in my hair if that makes sense.  This JC curl cream doesn’t do that for me.  Perhaps, if you have fine strands similar to 2a/2b hair it will work better.

I finished by twisting my hair at night, then rocked a twist-out updo the next day…..booooo!  I so wanted to love all of these products but as in life there were some hits and misses.  So for me 3rd time’s not a charm.  Look on the bright side, since the kit didn’t play well with my hair there may be something in it for you…stay tuned.  Enjoy the pics!



My 2nd Go Around with Jane Carter’s Curl Defining Cream

Hola!  Ok so as you can see I tried JC Curl Defining Cream again, I had to do a follow-up as I received quite a few emails when I reviewed it the first time.  I am sorry to say but this didn’t do it for me yet again.  I don’t know why,  I didn’t rush this time and I followed the suggested application procedure but still nada!  This is what I did:

-washed with Shea Moisture’s Curl and Shine Shampoo

-conditioned with Aussie Moist

-after rinsing I applied about a dime size of Moroccan Oil just to seal in a bit of moisture

-sprayed JC Revitalizing Leave-in Conditioner on my hair

-shingled JC Curl Defining Cream through in sections

-air dry

Now, once all of that was said and done and an hour or so passed I was left with soft hair but nothing out of the ordinary.  One good thing is that it didn’t have that sticky, film feeling that it did last time.  However, it didn’t necessarily elongate my curls  nor added any extra shine (all things that they claimed that this product could do).  We all know that everyone’s hair reacts differently to products, so if you are still interested give it a try.  I will just keep it in my hair closet and perhaps use it when I manage to master a twist-out once my hair gets a bit longer.  I hope that this helps, check out the pics below.  Enjoy!

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!
