After straightening my hair with E’tae Natural Products, I wore my hair straight for two weeks. Yesterday was finally wash day. I was curious to see how my hair reverted back to being curly, as well as how the shampoo would combat two weeks of buildup on my scalp. I ALWAYS wash my hair every week, but I decided to stretch it to two weeks this time and truth be told… I almost didn’t make it. My hair was embarrassingly dirty.
I did the Carmel Treatment as directed. Next, I applied the shampoo and as I’m massaging it in, I could feel the buildup on my scalp. It felt very greasy and gummy. *gross* I could also see the buildup under my nails. *gross again* I thought to myself that there was no way that this shampoo with mild lather was going to be able to cut through all of that buildup. I shampooed twice as directed and by the second shampoo, I could actually feel that it was working and my scalp felt clean and not gummy! Talk about surprised. I shampooed a third time just to be on the safe side. The worst thing is to wash and deep condition only to discover your scalp isn’t fully clean. Been there! LOL
I saw E’tae’s Instastories and they just so happened to mention that the client they were using for the demo has a lot of natural oil in her hair and they were leaving the shampoo in for about 10 minutes to dissolve some of the natural oil and buildup. Aha! That was exactly what I experienced. Now I know to let the shampoo sit next time.
I am very impressed by this brand. Oh… and to answer your burning question… Did my hair revert back to being curly? For sure!
