ORS = OR-Yes?

Gurl it’s been a while, I know. But shit has been going DOWN :O Exams are like here already and I’m slowly dying all the deaths, mainly because I am Queen Procrastinator- but there will always be hurrrr getting DONE SON #priorities

Getting down to it, we’ve all been seeing the boom in the natural hair product market here in SA amirite? Last month we had like 3.125 brands to choose from and now we have like 14263736478. If you’re anything like me, the budget simply cannot keep up!

ORS is the good folk behind our favorite hair mayonnaise, y’all know the stuff we like ๐Ÿ˜‰ They recently released the ORS Curls Unleashed range in SA, and were kind enough to let me try a few products out. Rest assured even though it came for dololo, I’m not going to #flattummytea you guys XD All opinions are genuine and not soeking for more freebies! #justsaying

Now when a range is this pricey, I kinda sorta hope that it doesn’t work too well XD This is just so I can feel better about my cheapskate ways, and walk past a product without feeling like I’m missing out on anything goodย ๐Ÿ‘€ ย It’s just so I can have some inner peace without these products in my life y’know?

*ratchet mode activate* ๐Ÿ‘ORS๐Ÿ‘ done ๐Ÿ‘ came ๐Ÿ‘ย through ๐Ÿ‘ ! I have been struggling with dryness and frizz recently. My hair refused to clump after rinsing off the conditioner, and only LOCing was saving my hair from the desert levels of dryness I was experiencing.

The shampoo smells like a dream. Rosemary (a good one for growth #longhairdontcaregoals) and coconut blended into it gently cleanse without stripping moisture. It lathers up impressively for a sulphate-free product, a plus I was not expecting. I would fully repurchase this because let’s be real: naturals use 4 bottles of shampoo in our lifetime, so it’s worth the investment XD

…since I bought that big bottle of Organics shampoo in the bathroom XD

The Intense Hair Conditioner is impressive too (sorry budget). I used it as a normal rinse-out conditioner, no baggying or any heat, and my hair clumped again!ย ๐Ÿ˜ฒ After weeks of DC treatments, pre-pooing and googlingย till the cows came home, this was the product that got my hair back on track. Its got bootilicious texture #thicc and really brings the life back to dull strands.

The Curl Defining Creme has shea butter and honey, things our hair loves. I used it as part of my LOC method, sealing with avocado oil. I skipped the moisturizer because this claimed to moisturize as well. However the results with this method only got me until day 2 hair, so I would recommend a moisturizer first before using this one. Surprisingly it didn’t weigh my hair down despite being quite thick, and I still had decent volume ๐Ÿ™‚

Results ๐Ÿ™‚

I like that the containers are bigger than the usual 250ml. Given the price tag, this helps ensure we would get more bang for our buck, plus a quality product. I have a lot of hair and a heavy hand, but after 4 uses my containers haven’t even hit the halfway mark. My hair is impressed with this one-alas, my budget is not XD Oh well, who really needs to eat everyday anyway?

K bye

    I love ur posts. You’ve got a great sense of humour ๐Ÿ˜ I tried the curl defining creme a couple of years ago, but I didn’t like it. It felt like I had a layer of residue on my hair, which felt slightly crunchy. How do you think the shampoo and conditioner perform against Dr Miracle and Aunt Jackie’s ? Is it better ?

      Thank you so much for reading and taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it ๐Ÿ™‚ There are definitely better styling products on the market, but the conditioner is one of the best I’ve used so far. With shampoo I’ve only recently joined the sulphate-free team, and I’ve used maybe 2 others. They’ve all worked well, maybe this one had the best scent รฐยŸย‘ยƒรฐยŸยยฝ
