One product wash n go?
One product wash n go?
The Odele line of hair products at Target caught my eye for its simple packaging and decent price. I tried one of their shampoos and conditioners but this is more about the Odele - Air Dry Styler I’ve been on the hunt for something that would make my wash n go much easier. It’s supposed to be easy in the first place but somehow it turned into a routine that took several steps. TLDR: Overall I liked this and will use it when I feel like being lazy with my wash n go...like during quarantine. 😌 Won’t be my holy grail when I want a long-lasting wash n go. Context: Whenever I get a new product I always try it out on clean hair and without other products. For reference, my hair is 3C/4A and it has been bleached/colored. It’s also on the fine side, gets oily at the roots pretty quickly, and dry everywhere else. Low porosity. Product Pros: SLIP- Omg! It’s like a mix between a gel and serum. Almost like lube. Lol. But seriously the slip is what I loved most. DEFINITION- It clumped my curls together so good to give it definition. NO CRUNCH- I hate crunchy curls. It still had a cast but it wasn’t crunchy at all. PRICE- It’s on par with other sorta-luxury drugstore hair products. I paid $11.99. INGREDIENTS- I’m not usually strict about ingredients like sulfates or phthalates. I think they’re in most products for a reason. I am skeptical when products have a million ingredients, so I was actually impressed that it only contained 16 ingredients. For those who care, it boasts no sulfates, formaldehyde, phthalates, parabens, dyes, or synthetic fragrances. Vegan and cruelty free also. Product Cons: DRY TIME- I felt like this made my hair take longer to dry than it usually does. FLAKING- I was a little confused when I started to break the cast to fluff my hair. Tiny flakes? How? That usually only happens with crunchy products. SHRINKAGE- This really isn’t the product’s fault and it probably occurred because water is the first ingredient. MOISTURE- My hair had some good shine but after I broke the cast, it still looked kinda dry. LONGEVITY- My Day 2 hair was disappointing. I pineappled it and covered it before I went to sleep but it looked frizzy the next morning. Probably because of the lack of moisture.

A few minor pimples so I needed to do a good salicylic mask to help tame it.

Trying this combination out. Used this combination yesterday (minus the reservatrol + ferulic) morning and my skin seemed to like it.
