Avanti Silicon Mix Bambu Review !Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Hi everyone! I know its been quite a while but I had absolutely nothing to blog about. I've been using the Avanti silicon Mix Bambu for a while now and I want to share my thoughts. I reviewed the original Silicon Mix last year and I really loved what it did for my hair. After that ran out, I purchased their "remix" so to speak. The Bambu version contains more minerals as well as Bamboo extract as well as Biotin to help hair repair itself.
This is what is written about it where it is sold on RoundBrushHair.com
"Nutritive Hair Treatment Bambu contains Bamboo Extract a natural product to regenerate and nourish the hair and Silicones to smooth and give shine. Prevents hair breakage and split ends. Vitamins A, E, F, H (Biotin), H, Pro-Vitamin B5 (Panthenol), H8 (Inositol) and Horse Chestnut Extract improve the health and beauty of the hair, helping it to grow longer."
After using the Original Silicon Mix, I really enjoyed what it did for my hair. It nourished my hair to where it could feel healthy again. My hair appeared less damaged and strong. My hair also grew a teeny bit better after using a jar of it. Now when using the Bambu version, I feel as if this adds more to my hair. This one feels even better when applied to by hair, and without weighing it down.
Just like the previous Silicon Mix, this one has Mineral Oil in it, which doesn't really bother me because after I treat my hair with this my hair looks shinny and full of life! It also shares the same thick, viscous texture of its precedent. I don't know about you, but I HATE to spend money on a deep conditioner that is half water and slides off my hair when applied.
As I so with all my deep conditioners, it is applied after I shampoo. I apply a generous amount focusing more on my ends, working upward (I don't really apply too much to my scalp/roots, as my ends need the most help). I cover my head with a secure plastic cap and go under a dryer with high heat for about 15 minutes. If anyone is wondering why I use heat or is new to the deep conditioning process; I came across an amazing article talking about why heat helps the conditioner penetrate the hair. You can read it HERE.
So after using the Original Silicon Mix 8oz, and now currently using the Silicon Mix Bambu in the 16 oz jar, I might consider purchasing the last installment in the Silicon Mix line, Silicon Mix La Perla. I absolutely adore this deep conditioner, it has a simple, clean scent and it helping my hair reapir itself. I would happily reccomend this product to a fellow woman with damaged relaxed hair! But don't let that stop you from using it, I would suppose it works on all hair types!
