hey people. hope all is plentiful out there in hair land for you.

so im totally geeked. i got my Ovation Cell Therapy and Darcy’s Botanicals a few days ago. i love ordering stuff for my hair. lol. heard nothing but great things about Darcy’s so i was really eager to get my hands on this and get it into my hair.

ive also got alotta requests to list the ingredients on ovation cell therapy bottles since ive got them. im reminded that we need to be aware of what is in our hair products, especially if youre pregnant (hey raina!).  i should have thought about this when i had my megatek bottles, but of course, i JUST threw it away (dammit). but since megatek and ovation are the same company, i figure ill list what i have on here. if i get some more megatek, ill be sure to list those ingredients too.

the ovation special system (starter) kit.

Now… on for Darcy’s Botanicals.

The Darcy Power Combo. Most of its for me.

The Darcy Power Combo. Most of its for me.

i have to admit… i heard the best part of Darcy’s, along with the product quality and the fact that everything is all natural/vegan… is the scents that she infuses into her products. i was really eager to give it a smell. i bought the Peach Kernel Hair Milk and Peach Kernel Hair and body oil (right two bottles) for myself. and as promised… the smell is intoxicating. its almost like biting down into a peach… it smells so good. i ended up ordering the madagascar vanilla styling creme for my little sister whos staying with me… so she could stay out of my Peach Hair Milk and Oil. lol. and as a treat… she sent a extra 3 ounce tester of her coconut aloe moisture pudding! free stuff is always great. lol.

ive been thoroughly satisfied with the product as well. i started off with the Hair Milk first, as ive heard nothing but good things about their leave in conditioner products. the hair milk is rich in moisture and creamy without being overly-oily or greasy. it goes on light and absorbs quickly into my braids without a problem. plus, the peach smell is the only thing that seems to overpower the smell that Shapley’s MTG leaves in my hair… which i will forever be grateful for. lol. as for the body and hair oil… its really rich and smells twice as good as the hair milk. not only does my hair love it… my skin is in love too. leaves me moisturizer and lightly scented of peaches. i dont get ashy within 5 hours like i do with most oils, so that is always a plus. lol.

the vanilla styling creme is also a plus. starting off thick and rich, you can rub it with your palms, and it melts into a richly scented conditioner type oil. great for the lil one, who is natural haired, and hair is 4B/thicker/drier than anything you can think of. really good moisturizer for her hair, and shes using it every other day. i use it on my braids once in a while, just for the oils and the vanilla smell.

welp, thats the basic updates and info on darcy’s and ovation. sorry for the long delay. i actually started writing this blog in october and was overwhelmed. it wont happen again. ill be keeping you up to date more often, and more info. pics of progress coming up next! take care.
