Opening it made me giddy, because as my video states(no video Boo Blogger! File too large 😭), it comes with quite a few goodies. The smell is strong, so now I know why they add the 'Aromatic Shimmer Serum' to mask the smell. It reminds me of how a bleach kit smells, just not as intense.
Application is a breeze. I wiped the excess off with a paper towel and the stain came right off. The box claims 25min for the color to take, but I have kinky natural hair. I'm going to go for 45min. There was enough in the bottle to completely saturate my shoulder length hair, which is a plus, because my thick hair usually needs 2 bottles. It burned a bit on my scalp during initial application because I had been scratching my scalp. 15min and the burning sensation is gone 😁
I didn't exactly time it, I just knew I wanted to rinse it out. I used the shampoo once and used the entire conditioner to finger comb the snarls outta my curls. OT shimmered! I felt like a unicorn! 🌈It is a subtle change in color. You can see it better in the light. Would I use it again? Yes I would. The damage is minimal at this point.
