Product Review: Sofn'free GroHealthy Nothing But Intense Healing Mask
Over they years I have strayed away from different products that are not as natural as others. I like to purchase as clean clear products as possible. I thought it was very odd when I came across a product that claimed to contain no petrolatum, mineral oil, sulfates, parabens, colorants, or phthalates. Those are a lot of agents that can cause different issues for some natural hair growth. With locs I don't want certain chemicals in my hair attaching to my locs. Chertian particles attract dirt. If you do not get perms, relaxers, texurizers or permanently dye your hair frequently, then your hair will not be around too many major chemicals anyway. To be certain about the chemicals in this product I looked it up n the EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. The product rates moderate in its hazard like some products due to its content. The worst ingredient in this is the high amount of fragrance or "parfum". What this ingredient is is not discussed. It does rate 8 meaning it does that the potential to cause allergies in some. Majority of the product has a low to moderate hazard. The product isn't literally hazard, but does contain other chemicals that may cause allergies in some people. Its cancer rating is low.
Cost: $10.00 Smell: Low Mint Smell to No Smell (ddd for the amount of fragrance in the product) Texture: Creamy, Thick Rating: 7/10 I rate this 7/10 due to the odd amount of fragrance. Other than that I love the way it makes my hair look and feel, It also mixes well with other oils as well as hair products because it is so basic. I can almost instantly feel it coat my hair with its version of nourishment. It also washes out well. For Locs: I do not put this directly in my locs. What you see in the picture is the product diluted in water. I then pour that mixture over my locs. I then put on a shower cap as i would for a dep condition. I leave that in for 20 minutes and then I rinse it out of my locs. I will explain about this process more in a later most.
