My Experience:

I have had Algae Renew for a month now and deep conditioned my hair each week. I sectioned my hair in 5 sections and added an ample amount to each, while I was in the shower. I put my plastic conditioning cap on and stayed in the shower, while there would be lots of steam flowing. I kept the conditioner on for 20 minutes, then washed out thoroughly in cool water.

Camille Rose Naturals Algae Renew Deep Conditioner Product Review

My Own Thoughts:

I am okay with this conditioner. It makes my hair completely soft and smells of mint peppermint. I really like that when my hair is damp after washing the conditioner out, it does not feel like sandpaper or looks like I put my finger in an electrical socket. My hair is curly-defined and I could actually just walk out the house (if I could do a wash-n-go).

 Also, when I get an ample amount of conditioner for my hair, it is like a frozen pudding. But, when I add it to my hair, it has a great amount of slip and just melts into my strands. I really like that about Algae Renew...but one thing that really disappoints me is the ingredient list.

When I looked up the ingredients of the Algae Renew I saw the first five ingredients: Distilled Water, Blue Green Algae, Honey, Aloe Vera Juice, Coconut Oil...but when I purchased this at Target, I saw: Deionized water, aloe vera juice, butyrospermum parkii(shea)butter, cocos nucifera (coconut oil), behentrimonium methosulfate (BTMS)...that really upset me.

I paid $20 for an 8oz container for advertised/featured products that were shifted around on the product label with other products that were not advertised anywhere on the website and in fact, other websites

In fact, Blue Green Algae was close to the end of the ingredient list (which mean less than 1% in the product) and honey was not the third ingredient on the list. *sigh*

Speaking of which, I saw Dipropylene Glycol (DG) on my container. For the life of me, I could not find a layman's definition of DG and how this could affect my hair. I did find PROPYLENE GLYCOL (PG), which did not give me a layman's definition either but: a humectant, which brings the moisture from the atmosphere into the strands of the hair BUT, which is also used in antifreeze...

All I can really think of is maybe the first ingredient list is an the old formula, which has not been updated yet...I don't know...I'M AT A LOSS!!! So I will say that I will continue to use Algae Renew since I do like the results...until it is all gone.


Camille Rose Naturals Algae Renew Deep Conditioner Product Review

Have you tried Algae Renew? What did you think about it?

Natural hair says: if you are looking for any product for something specific for your hair, make sure you read the label first!!! It is so important to know what is being advertised compared with what is actually in the container/bottle. Know what you are purchasing before you spend the "extra" money on it.

Always Desire Your Natural,
