My Love Hate Relationship with Terresentials

          Its been a while since I've dedicated a post to the Locs.  Rightfully so, since I've been neglecting it for a while now.  Wash, twist to dry, thrown in a bun, and left untouched until its wash day again.  I guess you can say I've been protective styling it lol but really its just laziness at its best.  I'm long over due for a henna treatment, haven't touched my steamer or done a serious DC in over a month but yet the Locs have been good to me with no major breakage or drying.  I know, I don't deserve this good behavior, I'm terrible, but when life calls you gotta put somethings on the back burner.

          I wish I could say the Locs are going to get some TLC soon, but they're not.  Into hiding they with these kinky twists I got done last week to prep for my trip to Miami (9 Days!) .  Normally I would do braids but I gave up on them ever since my hair has gotten too long.  The process is way too time consuming for all that, so I figured twists would be a faster alternative to put in and take out. Peep my lion's mane.

          But back to the topic of this post, my love hate relationship with Terresentials.  It seems as though I'm bipolar when it comes to the Terresentials Lavender Mud Wash.  Some days I LOVE it and others I wonder why I even gave into the hype.  To be honest I think I ultimately fall in the "glad to have tried it, but won't be a staple product" category.  Why?  Well it has its pros; time-efficient, smells amazing and all organic natural ingredients, however it has its drawbacks. 

          Number one being price.  If it told in the stores it would be priced just fine, however unless you live in Maryland where the headquarters are, the would be $10 bottle doubles in price to include shipping, no bueno.  And the other major con that I've come to terms with after washing my hair this morning was this,  its an itch and a half to rinse out, for me at least.  I don't know why but for the life of me I can't get this stuff to rinse clear out.  When I used my Trader Joes Tea Tree Tingle instead of the wash last week I realized that I never fully got all the mud out from the week before! To make it even worse that was the second time I scrubbed my scalp, smh.

          Needless to say I think this 16oz bottle of terresentials will be my last, lest I change my mind again lol.


  1. It looks great. That Trader Joes Tea Tree Tingle feels awesome in summer. Congrats on your hair wars. I'm living through you.

    1. Thank you :) And you can do it, going natural is hard at first then its easy as cake! I have faith in you!
