Hopefully you’ve been following along the past couple weeks when I was on my 4 week hair journey with Fancy’s Hair Innovation. I’ll be splitting this review into two posts, one reviewing the products and the other with my overall journey. Obviously by the title, we’re reviewing the products first lol.
I am going to talk about each product in the system, give key benefits and my thoughts and overall review. I think you may want to grab a snack and enjoy.
Fancy’s Hair Innovation is a 6 step regimen to help improve the overall health of your hair. The regimen includes (also to be used this order):
-Hydrating Gentle Cleansing Shampoo
-Moisture Balancing Conditioner
-Retention Goals Protein Treatment
-Refreshing Curls Leave In Treatment
-Twist It Out Styling Formula
-Nourishing Lock & Seal Hair Oil
I am normally a co wash every week and only shampoo once a month girl but I was interested to see how shampooing and conditioning my hair every week would be. I just love how you are equipped with everything for wash day from start to finish. It takes the hassle out of pairing different things together to wash your hair, you have everything you need in one box. Did I mention how cute the packaging is?
Step 1: Hydrating Gentle Cleansing Shampoo
Key Ingredients: Silk Protein and African Wild Honey
Benefits: To help improve elasticity, strengthen hair and add shine. It also helps to remove products build up without stripping hair of natural oils
I’ll get this out of way but all the products smell so good!
With hair products, scent is a big thing with me and I just love how the scent of each product complimented each other and was not over powering at all. It was just a clean, fresh and refreshing scent to me.
A little bit of this shampoo goes a long when using. You honestly do not need a lot to cleanse your hair. It lathers really nice and does not strip your hair at all. After cleansing, my hair felt really clean and ready for conditioning. I also noticed that this really cleanses the scalp and removes build up.
Step 2: Moisture Balance Conditioner
Key Ingredients: Plant Botanicals and Fruit Extract
Benefits: Controls dandruff and reduce shrinkage. Also helps to improve manageability, shine and prevent breakage
I just love the silky, smooth texture of this conditioner and love how it can be used as a deep conditioner as well. As I started to use this each week, I noticed less and less dandruff. When I usually wash my hair, by the end of the week my scalp is itchy, there is dandruff and feels a little dry. I love how both the shampoo and conditioner work together not only cleanse your hair but improve the hydration and moisture.
Step 3: Retention Goals Protein Treatment
Key Ingredients: Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein
Benefits: Increases elasticity, protects hair and stops breakage while controlling the rate of moisture loss
I don’t think I’ve used a protein treatment before and was really interested to see how this would work with my hair. The treatment is only to be used every 4-6 weeks or up to twice a month depending on how often you wash your hair. That is why I mentioned using the conditioner as deep conditioner as well when you are not using this protein treatment. My hair felt so soft and moisturized after using this and I’ll get into how it helped improve the breakage in the next post but this treatment is amazing.
Step 4: Refreshing Curls Leave In Treatment
Key Ingredients: Provitamin B5 and Sunflower
Benefits: Softens, detangles hair, frizz control and adds moisture
One tip on using this leave in is to shake it very well before using lol. The first time I used this I didn’t shake it well enough and thought it had a really watery consistency. It obviously doesn’t lol, I love the silky, lotion like consistency of this leave in. It really added moisture and hydration to my hair and made it easier for styling.
Step 5: Twist It Out Styling Formula
Key Ingredients: Rich Butter Blend( Cupuacu, Mango Seed, MarshmallowRoot Extract, etc)
Benefits: To make styling easier, manageable, soft and shiny and reduce dryness
The twistout is my favorite natural hair style to do because it is my signature and it is so easy. It was one of the first styles I mastered lol. When styling your natural hair, you want a product that is going keep your hair moisturized, defined and soft. This twist it out formula does all of those things and adds an amazing shine. It really does make styling your hair so much easier and you don’t have limit using this for a twistout, you can do a braid out, use it under a protective style, maybe even a bantu knot out.
Step 6: Nourishing Lock & Seal Hair Oil
Key Ingredients: Baobab, Kukui, Jojoba oil
Benefits: Lockin the moisture from previous steps, prevent frizz and dry scalp
The only time I use an oil in my hair routine is either as a hot oil treatment before washing or after rinsing out my deep conditioner to lock in the moisture. I never thought to use it after styling to lock in the moisture and I love how this oil does just that. It is very lightweight and does not weigh your hair down. It absorbs into the hair and scalp without feeling too oily or greasy. You can also use this oil with any protective style such as braids or twists to keep your scalp moisturized.
If you can’t tell by now, I loved everything from Fancy’s Hair Innovation. It really was a great experience using these products each week and watching my hair transform. Again, I’ll have a second post highlighting each week I use this regimen system.
