Product Review: Silicon Mix Bambu Leave-in

Good morning gorgeous :),

If I could rate the most important part of my hair regimen that has drastically cut down my breakage, before deep conditioning, moisturizing + sealing and protective styling, I would have to rate no direct heat as the #1 thing that really changed the game for me. Along with the elimination of direct heat, comes alternative methods of drying the hair in less damaging ways. Since I'm far too lazy to sit under a hooded dryer, I quickly became acquainted with air drying. When I first began air drying, I was faced with  poofy results that led to detangling and breakage issues. Rusk's Smoother leave-in conditioner was the first leave-in cream that I fell in love with for giving me sleek, detangled results from air drying, my one issue with it was that it wasn't pH balanced.

Silicon Mix Bambu Leave-in

The Silicon Mix Bambu Leave-in for me is comparable to the Rusk Smoother Leave-in in terms of ability to detangle, smooth and soften. It has a lotion-like consistency, is pale yellow in color and has a persistent, yet light, fresh scent. In addition to it having the qualities that i usually look for in a leave-in, it's also pH balanced so it closes my cuticles while my hair is damp leading to sleeker air dried results. This leave-in is easy to spread and a little bit goes a long way to ease detangling on t-shirt (or towel) dried hair. I will say that it feels a bit heavy when it is first put on the hair, but as it dries its weighless. I would say that the perceived heaviness when first applied is what makes detangling go even faster. I am a huge fan of this leave-in, I haven't yet tried it when doing a magnetic roller set, but it works just as well for flexi-rod sets as it does for air drying. For my protein and silicone sensitive ladies, this leave-in contains both. However, since this leave-in contains silicone and protein I would suspect that it could be used in heat styling as well. I would absolutely recommend this leave-in conditioner to anyone who needs help detangling damp hair or wants smoother results from air drying or rollersetting.
