I’m in week 9 of my transition to natural hair, and I’m noticing that the breakage has started to pick up a bit when washing and detangling my hair.
This is to be expected and I’m aware of how delicate the demarcation line is with our hair. (That’s the place where your natural hair and processed hair meet.)
I noticed on YouTube that a lot of naturals and transitioners use the Giovanni product line, so I went to my local Ulta Beauty store to give them a try.
I bought the Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo and the 50:50 Balanced Hydrating-Calming Conditioner.
I was impressed.
First of all, they are sulfate-free. I’ve been reading up on the dangers of using sulfate in your hair so I will make sure all my products are free of this substance from now on.
Second, the conditioner left my hair soft and manageable. And what’s most important, I didn’t have nearly as much breakage as I had before.
So far Giovanni seems to live up to the hype. It’s a bit pricey at $8 for 8 oz. but it did its job. So until I find something I like better, I will stick to this product line.
It’s 100% natural and you can use it as a leave-in or wash it out. My favorite thing about it is that it DETANGLES LIKE A DREAM! And that’s going to be very important as I continue to transition.
I will still use the Giovanni products, but I do like the Kinky Curly line better (at least while I transition).
