A few months ago, Eden Bodyworks had a trivia contest on Twitter and I entered to win their Jojoba Monoi Haircare line. I had the right answer to their question and I won!! The line consists of their Jojoba Monoi Moisturizing Shampoo, Jojoba Monoi Revitalizing Conditioner, Jojoba Monoi Hair Milk, Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner, and Jojoba Monoi Hair Oil. To be honest, I hadn't tried their products before so I saw this as a wonderful way to test the FULL SIZE products (4oz.- 16oz) and not worry about the money spent if my hair didn't like them. Everything took about 2-3 days to get to my house and that alone impressed me. I rarely order online because I'm too impatient to wait for it lol.
I started out by washing my hair with the shampoo and I was surprised that it didn't leave my hair stripped. Shampoos I've used before always make my hair feel so stripped and actually matte together in a ball of mess that can't be detangled. My hair was actually soft and clean. The real test? That quick scalp scratch to make sure any build up was gone there too. This shampoo most certainly passed!
these clips from Sally's. They hold my thick hair whether its wet, blown out, curly, whatever. Plus, a pack of 12 is less than three dollars. Once my hair is sectioned, I apply the conditioner to each section, about a nickel to quarter size amount and let it sit while I wash my body in the shower. After I let the conditioner sit for about five minutes, I go through each section with my denman brush and my hair feels soooooooooooo soft.
Throughout the winter, I mainly did twist outs or puffs, the basics just to see how the line works with the various styles and each one came out better and better. I'll definitely buy this line going forward especially since its so easily accessible. Literally, hop in the car and go to Walmart or Sally's and BOOM. Right on the shelf!!Another huge plus is both retailers tend to provided coupons from time to time so now you officially have no reason not to test everything out!
The final style ended with me having my hair in pin-curls so click through to take a look!

|Hairdryers at Curltopia|
|Shampoo Area ( Very neat and organized)|
Fast forward a few months later (I forgot to call back) and I made an appointment. The first thing I noticed was their phone system. It was automated but direct and got you EXACTLY to who you needed to speak to for anything you needed. After I made my appointment, I arrived and got checked in. No waiting at all.
