| This is my own experience
Last year in April I bought my first Auntie Jackie’s product. For a while now I have seen their product been promoted by other lady’s and saw some great reviews. I have been looking for a new moisturizing conditioner that was available in a store and not expensive.
What got my attention was the title moisturizing & softening part and that is a reconstructive conditioner. I’m a sucker for a product that mentions the word moisturizing. But is it really moisturizing?? That is always the question.
What does the product say: For amazing softness, deep condition and greater manageability use Aunt Jackie’s In Control as often as needed. Prefect as restorative and reconstructive condition treatment, or as a co-wash. In Control gives vibrancy to dehydrated, brittle, dull, dry-looking hair and softens for easier combing & styling. Curls and waves become more elongated & smoother. Coils, twist and braid-outs become touchably soft & more defined, and heat-styled hair looks silky and frizz free.
Directions: After shampooing, apply a generous amount all over hair, coating hair from roots to ends, concentrating more on coarse or harder-to-manage areas. Cover hair with a plastic cap for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. Gently comb through hair with a wide-tooth comb.
I remember the first time that I used the product it reminded me of ORS Replenishing Conditioner. Why? Because the conditioner has amazing slip. It really does. The product has a nice thick texture. Even when I added some oils the texture stayed the same.
Well the product says you can use it as a condition treatment or co-wash with it. The product has only been used to condition with it. I used the product without heat, with heat (a hooded dryer) and a hair steamer. The results with all three was perfect. My hair is moisturized – hydrated – and soft.
I really can say that I like the product. The slip is amazing, it hydrates and softens the hair. Plus it is really great when you are many weeks post relaxer. For example at the moment I’m 15 weeks post. The product has softened my new growth beautifully. The product is not really catered to relaxed hair, but I don’t care about that. It still works on my hair and I’m pleased about it.
Is this product a new addition to the family … YES!! This product is a keeper. Last month I even bought a new jar.
- Not expensive. The price is around € 7, – / € 8,-. I didn’t pay much attention to the price when I bought it the second time. But the first time I bought it for € 8, – at an event.
- It does what it says. Moisturizing, softens and it has a nice slip.
- Glycerine is second on the ingredient list (I’m always happy when there is glycerine). But overall the ingredients in the product is great.
For now I don’t have any cons. Oke I have to admit first I had to get used that the product was in a jar. But I got used to it and plus it’s easier to get the product out. So yeah no cons.
