Beauty Review: Kimble Hair Care Systems Ginger Cream Conditioner
I recently decided to make the transition back to natural hair, and let me tell you, it has not been easy! I don’t remember my hair being this unmanageable last time, but I have been having the most difficult time managing the two contrasting hair textures.
My relaxed hair is very fragile because of the permanent hair color still on my hair from the last time I was natural, and the natural new growth doesn’t want to cooperate with the relaxed hair. Styling my hair has been difficult enough, but washing and blow drying my hair has been the truly challenging task. My usual favorite shampoo and conditioner aren’t cutting it during this phase, so I’ve been searching high and low for a shampoo and conditioner that will work as I transition.
I’ve been wanting to try celebrity hair stylist Kim Kimble’s hair care line for the longest, as she’s behind the fab hair of stars like Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Vanessa Williams and Kerry Washington (check my profile of Kim Kimble here!). Unfortunately, the Target stores in my area haven’t carried the line since in debuted in Target stores in 2008. After nearly 2 whole years, a single, solitary Target store in my city is finally carrying the line! They only had about 4 or 5 items from the line, which has every kind of hair product you could possibly need, so I picked up a few items. I’ll be reviewing them in the coming weeks.
Of the items I purchased, I was really impressed with the Ginger Cream Conditioner, $10. This creamy wonder contains Avocado Oil, collagen, sodium hyaluronate (a super hydrating, moisture-retaining ingredient usually found in skin care products), keratin and aloe. As soon as I saw the ingredient list, I was sold and knew I was in for a treat!
Kimble’s Ginger Cream Conditioner really detangled my hair beautifully and left it nice and soft. My hair was so much easier to comb out and blow dry, which meant less breakage. We love that! As for the scent, the conditioner has a natural, yet light smell. Like something you’d find at Whole Foods. It doesn’t smell badly, per se, but it’s not the fake, flowery, sweet scent you usually get with a lot of hair products. Either way, it’s very light and won’t linger on your hair. In other words, if you’re not crazy about the scent, don’t let it deter you from using this conditioner.
I’m very glad I bought this conditioner, and will gladly continue to use it! If you’re in the market for new hair care products I definitely urge you to give Kimble Hair Care Systems a try. It’s sold online at Target.com and at Target stores in predominately African-American areas (check the “Ethnic” hair care aisle). Have you tried other products from Kimble Hair Care Systems? Give up the details! Let me know what you tried and what you thought of it in the comments!
