Product Review: Original Moxie Pt. II + GIVEAWAY!! {CLOSED}

June 21, 2013

Hello and thank you for joining me for part two of my Original Moxie review!

Last time, you saw how I used two of the products on wash day (here it is in case you mised it). After washing, I did a blowout using one of the styling products I received, Lux Locks Styling and Shine along with a small dollop of grapeseed oil as a heat protectant.

Lux Locks Styling & Shine- 6 oz. $18 {For thick, dry hair that soaks up heavier creams and craves moisture and definition.}

Claim: “…penetrating moisture & natural ingredients without product build up! The key is our unique blend of Shea & Ucuuba Butters, both exceptionally rich sources of Vitamins and Omega Fatty Acids, which deliver deep moisture to dry hair, and create a smooth, glossy finish that lasts and lasts.” 

How can I describe the smell of this??  Hmmm… this is a tough one. I’d say it has a rather herbal scent. With natural ingredients like Nettle, Ylang Ylang, Kelp and Yucca Root, no wonder! Once again, I love the commitment to quality ingredients! The main thing I noticed about this product was that a little goes a long way- I received two minis (.5 oz each), used the buttery, cream-like product throughout my entire head and still had about half of the product left in the first mini jar…and you see how thick my hair is! I thought for sure I would need both jars all at once but I was thoroughly surprised. What does this mean? That you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. I was able to use that same jar a couple more times for touch-ups before I exhausted it. *high five* My hair had great shine, felt soft and the blow-out held up for the rest of the evening with little to no shrinkage.

A few days into this blow-out, the weather got crazy (that’s NY for ya!). So, I decided it was time to put this hair up in a simple protective style. I had done this particular updo before but thought I should try it out with my OM goodies! For this, I turned to my Lux Locks to seal in moisture after applying a leave-in and this gel to slick my hair up…

JustGelJust Gel Styling Concentrate 8oz. $18 {All curl types; medium to thick hair}

Claim: “Flexibility is the name of the game for this unique gel. Whether your hair is pin straight or tightly curled, this alcohol-free formula, infused with botanical extracts and fortified with Vitamin E & Panthenol, will deliver frizz control and touchable hold without the Dried-Out-Crunchies!”

The consistency of this gel reminded me of some homemade flaxseed gel I concocted last year. Looking closer at the bottle, I realized that was for good reason since flaxseed extract is one of the main ingredients. ^_^ It has a light floral/fruity smell, I love it. This is one of the most natural gels you’ll find on the market. Infused with Horsetail, Irish Moss and St, John’s Wort, Just Gel not only helps you achieve a great style but it nourishes your hair in the process. You can’t beat that!

Watch the brief style tutorial below to see how I used the combo to get the look.

Cool, huh?! I had a flexible hold and my hair wasn’t crunchy whatsoever. Flakes after it dried? Zero! {P.s. Normally I would tie my hair down to set it after applying the gel but I was rushing to head out :-) } All in all, I was pleased with the results.

So… would you like to try some for yourself?! OF COURSE you would! Rachel, creator of Original Moxie (she rocks!) has given me the opportunity to select TWO winners who will receive a set of Moxie Minis containing all of the items I used:

1 oz Get Clean | 1 oz Intense Quench | .5 oz Lux Locks |  1 oz Just Gel
