Product Review: Jamaican Mango & Lime Shampoo and conditioner.

Hello there,

Happy new month for starters :), I'm going to have to be very awake this September, so there will be no need to wake me up when September ends :). I never like to go into whatever topic I raise straight away, I like gist, so forgive me if I always gist a little before I go into it. I can't help it, I am a proud plumpy African woman... before I over digress, l had to control the urge to watch other reviews before this post so that my opinion is not swayed in any way. This is my honest review of the Jamaican Mango & Lime Shampoo and Conditioner.

I have used this products religiously for about three years, so I guess I am qualified to review.

Jamaican Mango & Lime Tingle Shampoo

Function - Very Good
Smell - Very Good
Feeling - Excellent
Lather - Good

Just as it's name goes the "tingle" in the shampoo is real; and that's the best part of it. The Tingle Shampoo, gives you a tingly feeling on your scalp when you use it leaving your scalp feeling clean. Now that I wash my hair myself it gets slightly uncomfortable when it gets around my eyes. ( I wash from the back of my head to the front under a shower). It smells great. The Tingle Shampoo doesn't lather exceptional well, it takes about 2 washes before I begin to see the kind of lather that makes you feel your hair is clean. This may also mean my hair is always very dirty which I would like to think not.  It is also one of those products that are made specifically for locs, so that helps reduce some paranoia on whether or not it is good for your locs.

The Jamaican Mango and Lime Tingle Shampoo is also all about cleaning your locs, it feels like my locs strands are being stripped when I use it. It almost feels like a clarifying Shampoo. With that being said I'll recommend you always use a conditioner after using this product or as an alternative you can mix it with essential oils (I have never tried mixing).

Jamaican Mango and Lime Protein Conditioner

Function - Excellent
Smell - Very Good
Feeling - Excellent
Texture - Very Good

The Jamaican Mango and Lime protein Conditioner helps restore balance to your locs strands after a tingle shampoo wash. The conditioner is in a watery-ish lotion form, it's thick enough to sit in and give the added moisture needed. When I use this product my hair feels nice, soft and smells good. I also like the consistency of the product as it's easy to wash out and not too watery so it sits in for the time you wish to let it seat it. It also gives my locs some extra body after use.

So on a scale of 1-10, I'll give the shampoo an 8 because I wish it lathered more. The conditioner, I would say a 9, I have no complaints at all, but I'm sure there's something better out there.

Hope you've found this helpful, if you use this product please drop a comment with your own views and if you are thinking of trying it I'll definitely recommend it.
