A Second Look: Jane Carter Solution

Recently, Ricky's had a sale on curly hair products, so I decided to try something new. I didn't know exactly what I was going to get, but after reading a few product reviews and websites, I decided on Jane Carter Solution. The three products I got were the Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner, Hair Nourishing Creme, and Nourish and Shine.

OK first things first. The price tag: OUCH! Yes, beautiful hair for fro-babies is not cheap. Or easy. But well worth it.

I looked on the Jane Carter Solution website for some insight on how they might work on children's hair. She has a blog on the website that actually addresses this in one post. It suggests detangling with the leave-in and moisturizing with the hair nourishing creme and twisting the hair into double-strand twists. It doesn't talk about nourish and shine, although many many people on children's websites swear by it. I used it to refresh and shine and for crunchy ends. The result? Well, see for yourself:

For the un-indoctrinated (:D) Double-strand twists are exactly what they say they are. Small sections of hair, divided into two pieces and twisted around each other. I actually ended up doing this by accident, because detangling her hair was such a massive job. I decided to section off the hair and detangle it in micro-sections, that I ended up twisting together. G was willing to sit there for an hour (I could have done a better job, but that might have been oh, an hour and a half--I didn't' want to press my luck!

Her hair felt very soft and silky and the shine was great. More importantly she loved her "princess twists" and how bouncy her hair was after we did the twists. So, I'd definitely recommend giving this a try.
