Glossy Locks Honey Coconut Milk Shampoo, Conditioner, & Smooth/ Moisture Hair Balm Product Review
This will be my second product review my first one was not on hair products but on organic bath soap. I was given the opportunity to do this review because I contacted the company. They were gracious enough to send me three of their products in sample sizes, and I was not paid for this review just to let you know. The three products that I was sent were Glossy Locks Honey Coconut Milk Shampoo, Conditioner, and Smooth/Moisture Hair Balm. There are only three products from this particular Glossy Locks line but I believe they are going to add more in the future. On to the review :)

Glossy Locks Smooth and Moisture Hair Balm= Avocado Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B5), Rosehip Oil, Lavender Essential Oil.
These are the ingredients of all three products as you can see all of the ingredients are all natural. The scent of the conditioner and the shampoo are the same they smell like honey and the balm has a different scent it smells like lavender. My opinion of these products first the shampoo is very thin, however a little goes a long way so you should not have an issue getting it to lather. The shampoo to me is a little drying if I were to use this on regular basis I would do a prepoo before hand. The conditioner however is quite thick and the slippage on it is awesome I have super thick hair. As far as the moisture for it I give it a 5 out 5 it provides great moisture I did not have to do a deep conditioner to give my hair some extra moisture. Finally the balm I give it a 4 out 5 only because I felt like it smoothed on better on my daughter's hair who is 3c/4a her hair is kind of fine. My hair is thicker it smoothed but I need something heavier its just too light. Does this product live up to the name Glossy Locks? After using this twice and the only reason I could not get more use out of it is the sample is 3.5ozs. So between my hair and my daughter's it went quick, for both of us I think it did give some shine.
Overall these products were better than I thought I was kind apprehensive because I did not see any reviews on these products, online for individuals with kinky hair. Now just to let you know the price is kind of high the full size of these products comes in 8oz. which will cost you $16 each. The balm the biggest size for it is 2oz. the cost for this is $15. If you want to get samples of these they will run you about $8 for each one. The balm sample size is 0.5oz will be $6. If you have any additional question feel free to leave comment or send me an email :).
