Review: Pydana Collection is a MIRACLE WORKER for Dry, Frizzy & Low Porosity Natural Hair!
I wish you guys could reach out and touch my hair.
Every once in a while, you encounter a brand and immediately start wondering where they've been all your life. Wondering why it feels like everyone's been keeping the secret to hella soft hair from you. Thinking that nobody loves you and wants you to be great with moisturized tresses.

That's me right now, as I fall in love with Pydana Collection.

As LA weather gets more frigid (yes, 60 degrees is COLD and io'n care what you say), I'm looking for more ways to pump my hair with long-lasting moisture and softness that holds up without hardening.

The Rundown
I know when it comes to microwavable deep conditioning caps, it seems like Hot Head has cornered the market. As someone who's had a Hot Head for years, and is now experiencing Pydana's Thermal Cap, let me let you in on a lil' secret.

Pydana has the BEST microwavable deep conditioning cap - PERIODT. Yes, you can quote me on that.

Every single detail about the Pydana Thermal Cap is engineered to perfection. I'm not just talking about the color and pattern (although this Okoye print is gawwwwjus!). I'm talking about how secure the elastic band is without squeezing my brain. How spacious the inside of the cap is to accommodate thicker, longer hair (and locs too!). How expertly crafted the inner contents of the cap are.

137% QUALITY all the way around.

Beyond superior construction, the performance of Pydana's Thermal Cap is off the charts too. I heated mine for a total of 3 minutes following the card instructions (2 consecutive minutes, then 2 30-second increments), and found that the cap stayed warm well beyond the 20 minutes I needed to use it for. It didn't feel piping hot to the touch (thank God), but the gentle warmth was consistent and made my deep conditioning session that much more effective.

The bottom line - if you want to freely multitask around the house while maximizing your deep treatment time, Pydana Collection is the way to go. Trust me.

The Good
Oh my gawwwwwd where do I start? I love EVERYTHING about the Avocado & Babassu Herbal Silk Deep Moisture Treatment. This deep conditioner is an instant HG. Thick, rich, and creamy, this 8oz miracle jar has amazing slip and makes detangling drama a thing of the past. My favorite part though?

Hardly any white = perfect absorption!
My low porosity sections LOVE it. Even though the Avocado & Babassu Herbal Silk Deep Moisture Treatment is rich and creamy, it soaks right into my strands almost on contact. Combined with heat from my gorgeous Okoye Thermal Cap, even my frizziest strands were dancing for joy. Upon rinsing, my dramatically rough ends were GONE. The shine was impeccable. Softness? Off the freaking charts.

Want to know something funny? I kept rinsing my hair well beyond the normal rinse-out time because it felt too soft, and too moisturized to be product-free. So much unnecessary water down the drain, because I had never experienced this level of hydration and smoothness from a deep conditioner before.

Literally, a miracle for my parched tresses in a jar. A little goes a long way - my hair was easily coated and there's still plenty left in the jar for future uses. The fragrance smells divine - light, sweet, and regal. Not aggressive, and barely noticeable after rinsing. But honestly, I wouldn't mind if my hair did hold on to the fragrance. I'd love to have this delightful aroma bottled up and sold as a room spray! I also got compliments on my hair smelling good at work!

The Bad
NOT. A. SINGLE. THING. Do you hear me?

NOTHING.

Except maybe, a bigger jar. Like, salon size. 🙏🏽

The Bottom Line
Honestly, everything above this line says it all. You've GOT to give this one a try for yourself.

Lush. Smooth. Shiny. AMAZING!
The Good
You guys should know by now that I love me a good leave-in conditioner. Something that packs a punch, detangles like a dream, and helps envelop my curls in long-lasting moisture. The Avocado Herbal Silk Leave-In Conditioner hit all those marks, and then some!

A little bit went a very long way in creating the braid and curl style in this blog post. Because my hair was already so moisturized from my deep conditioning sesh, a few dollops did my hair plenty of justice. The consistency is creamy and ultra moisturizing, but not too thick.

With a little warm water (that's my trick, low porosity folks!), the Avocado Herbal Silk Leave-In Conditioner soaked right into my strands leaving little to no white residue behind. And for those of you guys who struggle with getting leave-ins to penetrate, y'all know that's a straight miracle!

The Bad
Again, I've got nothing. I won't even complain for a bigger bottle because I used so little, 8oz will last me for a looooong time.

The Bottom Line
If you need a leave-in that's going to penetrate with practically no effort, give the Avocado Herbal Silk Leave-In Conditioner a try!

The Good
I'm a believer in miracles. I'm also a believer in good science. Somewhere between the two exists the 
Marula & Cupuacu Herbal Silk 3-in-1 Intensive Moisturizer.

I kid you not.

As I write this review, I'm trying to overcome the most intense case of hand-in-hair syndrome that I've had in a very long time. The hair I'm touching is soft. It's moisturized. It's defined. It feels nothing like the hair I've grown to know and love. Not saying that my hair was a tumbleweed before, but I've spent the vast majority of my natural hair journey plagued by a rude, definition-less crown, rough ends, and a mixture of porosities.

And somehow - the Marula & Cupuacu Herbal Silk 3-in-1 Intensive Moisturizer has transformed my hair into a singular, soft, supple, smooth-ended masterpiece.

For this braid and curl, I applied the Marula & Cupuacu Herbal Silk 3-in-1 Intensive Moisturizer section by section, and brushed it through with my Felicia Leatherwood Detangler Brush. Instant smoothness and no white residue sitting on top of my strands. I only used a tiny dab per braid, and my jar is still 97% full. I went under the dryer for over an hour, and emerged with my hair still hydrated as ever.

Miracles, y'all. Science and miracles.

The softness and moisture is unreal.
The Bad
Not a single complaint. Except, can I bathe my entire life in this stuff? There are some other areas of my adulthood that are kinda ashy and could benefit from this exceptional level of moisture. Just sayin'.

The Bottom Line
If you find your hair feeling dry, hard, and brittle after 1 day, you need a new moisturizer. And let me tell you - the Marula & Cupuacu Herbal Silk 3-in-1 Intensive Moisturizer just might be it.

See how smooth those ends are laying?
The Good
Short. Sweet. To the point. Really, that's all there is to know about this oil. It's lightweight and packs a nutritive punch without being greasy. It smells ah-MAY-zing. I want to wear it as a body oil! And honestly, because the Marula & Cupuacu Herbal Silk 3-in-1 Intensive Moisturizer and Avocado Herbal Silk Leave-In Conditioner are so darn moisturizing, I just might wear it as a body oil.

I applied the Luscious Locks Herbal Silk Hair Oil to the ends of my hair following the leave-in, for extra protection and lubrication against the plastic blue perm rods. My ends felt smooth, protected, and supple during the takedown and styling - which let me know this was the right move. It's also a great scalp oil!

The Bad
As I've mentioned previously, I'm not the biggest fan of soybean oil. But in the right formulation, it's work-withable. Regardless, I want to douse my life in the Luscious Locks Herbal Silk Hair Oil because it smells sooooo good.

The Bottom Line
If you're looking for a lightweight serum-like oil to lock in all this amazing moisture, give Luscious Locks Herbal Silk Hair Oil a try!
