So if you guys are frequent readers of the blog, you’ll remember that I did a review of the Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream not that long ago, and frankly, I didn’t like it. But the other day, I got a comment on that post that I wanted to address openly and separately, because this is NOT the way you share information online. Exhibit A:
No wonder you don’t like it! You used almost half the jar on two applications. You will have a coating on your hair if you use so much! Even if your hair is thick, as you say, you are your own worst enemy on the use of this product and are preventing people who may like it to not try it. You just need to get help with your hair. I use this product and I love it, the Curly Curl product. I love it. I use a shea butter leave in conditioner with it because it thins the Curly Curl product and helps give it sheen. Unless you are thoroughly familiar with a product and know how to use it, I would refrain from giving damaging information to others about it. That’s not very sister-like. I don’t work for this product and actually find that it’s the best product for my naturally curly (not kinky) hair.
Now, let me break my response down.
No wonder you don’t like it! You used almost half the jar on two applications. You will have a coating on your hair if you use so much!
This would be a valid point, except I used the product more than two times…no where in my video did I say I used it twice. I said a “few” times, which to me, is three to five times. Also, I usually apply my products in two HUGE sections on my hair, then do another glob for the back/bottom of my hair. However, if a product didn’t work for me this way, I go to the “long” way of applying it, which is sectioning. Now, this way uses up a lot more product, but sometimes, it turns out working. A 6oz jar of product really isn’t that much if you section. I have admitted PLENTY of times on my blog to being heavy handed, yet I have found a TON of products that work great on my hair. What would make this product so special that it needs to be handled so delicately? Oh yea, I hate it. That’s right.
Even if your hair is thick, as you say, you are your own worst enemy on the use of this product and are preventing people who may like it to not try it.
How can I be my “own worst enemy” if I use a product how I normally use all of my other products? You don’t need a PhD in Product Application to use things on your natural hair. It’s not rocket science. This product just did not work for ME. In addition to the coating I felt, it felt dry going on my hair (even adding a tiny bit), had no slip, and was greasy. What does that have to do with how much I used? Furthermore, I also tell people ALL THE TIME to not take my reviews as gospel. They are MY opinion and describe how something worked for ME. If the ingredients sound good to them and the texture seems like something they would like, by all means, they are free to try it. I’m not chaining people down in my basement to keep them from buying this stuff. At the same time, I also tell people not to run out of their homes like groupies at the All Star game to purchase something I rave about, because I know it might not work for them and I HATE it when people listen to me and waste their money. Seriously, I hate it. I always encourage the people who read my blog and watch my vids to pay attention to ingredients, how I describe my hair, and draw their OWN conclusion before buying a product. I am not a guru, I am not a deity. I’m a chick who likes hair. I’m not keeping anyone from doing a damn thing.
You just need to get help with your hair.
I’m sorry, I don’t want to toot my own horn, but have you seen my hair? It’s doing just fine, thanks. And it’s doing even better without this product. Next.
I use this product and I love it, the Curly Curl product. I love it.
Good for you, I’m happy that it works for YOU.
I use a shea butter leave in conditioner with it because it thins the Curly Curl product and helps give it sheen.
Well this is funny, because people give me shit all the time if I pair a product with something else and don’t use it alone, because they ask how I know if the product in review truly works. Oh well, can’t please everyone.
Unless you are thoroughly familiar with a product and know how to use it, I would refrain from giving damaging information to others about it. That’s not very sister-like.
Again, product application is NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. Chile, did you go to school to use this product? I didn’t say anything damaging, I said that I DID NOT LIKE IT and it did NOT WORK FOR ME. Since when are people not allowed to say they don’t like things?? Are you the thought police? Is this 1984? Are you a Republican??????? Furthermore, I am nobody’s sister, except my brother’s. So do NOT come on my blog talking about “sis this” and “sis that.” Take that someplace else. Like a family reunion.
I don’t work for this product and actually find that it’s the best product for my naturally curly (not kinky) hair.
You don’t work for them? Then why are you going so hard for them? You should be happy – my review will keep people from buying up your precious Curly Cream and you can have all you want. And oh, so you have curly, not kinky hair? Okay, so we already have completely different hair, so why are you comparing your experience to mine? Again, congrats on loving the product.
In conclusion, I don’t want people to be scared about asking about my reviews and addressing my critiques. I take constructive criticism just fine. But if I say I don’t like something, I’m not trying to demonize it. Trust me, the company won’t go bankrupt because of one bad review. They will live to see another day. It’s just not that serious.
Until next time pals…*Drops mic, hops off soapbox, does a shot with my pals*
