How's everyone doing?Hope all is well at your endz!!
Starting SHOP NHCG has had some really great benefits, one of the main benefits being my introduction to really great products , products I had never heard about or cared about but because a reader of this blog ordered it, I gave it a shot and loved it.
One of such products is the HAIR TRIGGER EXPLOSIVE GROWTH ELIXIR with Cayenne pepper introduced to me by Kelly(Thanks again girl!!).
I usually never purchase products that claim to be 'explosive' or 'miraculous' or 'magical' because I just have always felt those words were just for marketing purposes so when Kelly ordered a bottle of this stuff I was like 'which one is this again? Poor girl has fallen for a marketing gimmick!' Not one to make conclusions without at least researching, I decided to look up reviews and more people than I expected loved it(if you really want to know more about a product you are just hearing about
googling up reviews is a MUST) even blogger Jen from Just Grow Already had tried it out so I concluded the product might not be that bad after all.
I ordered it for Kelly in Novemeber. Remember how I told you the manufactuer sent a hand written thank you note HERE, loved the personal touch but I still was not convinced. Even when the import window opened in January I was still not interested...then a twist of fate happened!!! Kelly sent me a mail saying she needed another bottle with a scent ( Well thats what I thought she said) because the first bottle she ordered had no scent and I hear the original scent is hardcore, so I go ahead and buy a bottle for Kelly and then she tells me that she did'nt want another bottle but just a scent to add to her existing bottle and unfortunately the company does'nt sell only scents so I was stuck with the already ordered bottle and decided to try it out for myself and see if I would like it. So here goes my review...
Ingredients; Oils:Avacado, Castor, Clary Sage, Jojoba, Rosemary.
Vitamins; Biotin, Silica.
Herbs; Black Tea, Cayenne pepper, garlic and Onions
Don't you like how she breaks down the ingredients; oils, vitamins and herbs, will definitely help if you want to concoct this mix yourself as the ingredients are organic and straight forward.
Directions; Again the manufacturer does a great job in telling you different ways you can use this product; Below are the directions in my summary...
Daily Treatment; Apply to scalp, dont go beyond 1 inch of roots, massage well for 2-5minutes and style
Overnight pre-poo treatment; Apply from roots to ends evenly, you may add an oil/conditioner, massage, cover with plastic cap, rinse next day and shampoo.
Hot oil treatment- apply to damp/dry hair, distribute evenly from scalp to ends, massage, cover hair for 15-30mins with plastic cap and stay under dryer. Follow with shampoo.
Other intsructions; store in cool, dry place. Wait 48hours before/after relaxer or color treatment to use, wash hands after use, avoid eye contact...
Now to my experience; I have only used this product as an overnight pre poo and in the 3times I have used it on my hair, my hubs has asked if I baked cupcakes!! I got the vanilla pound cake scent(for Kelly) and all I can say is YUM!! The scent really does a great job in masking all the garlic and onions that's inside the mix! The mix has the look and consistency of pure honey(maybe slightly lighter) or maple syrup.
The first time I poured it in a bowl I was not feeling it on its own so I mixed it with some conditioner like I would if I was using honey.
