Testing Nexxus Between Washes Revived Curl Creme Spray

I am always signing up to receive something free. And this post is about one of those products. A while ago I signed up to potentially receive a hair product from Nexxus and it just came in. They ended up sending me the Nexxus between washes revived curl creme spray. This spray is supposed to be used in between hair washings when you want to keep your hair curly and nourished. It’s made for people with curly hair. I tried it out this past week and I would like to share the results with you.

Positives

I am a hair product freak so I was very excited to try this new product out. I’m always looking for new ways to keep my twist outs looking fresh and lasting longer! (Twist out: when you twist your hair, let it dry, and then take the twist apart) The first thing I noticed when I sprayed the spray is how wonderful it smelled. It has a very fresh smell to it which is always appealing when it’s a scent that will linger throughout the day. The second thing I noticed is that my hair felt super soft and moisturized all day. When you have natural hair it’s so important to keep your hair moisturized because it looses its moisture so easily. So that was another plus for me. This spray is called a creme spray and I noticed it seemed a little thicker than most sprays so I think that’s why it was so moisturizing.

Before and after

Negatives

The third thing that I noticed was that it didn’t seem to curl my hair that much. I sprayed this in my hair a day or so after my twist out hoping it would keep the curls going but that was not the case. It made my hair more fluffy than curly. My hair was bigger and more moisturized but the curls weren’t as defined as they were before. This was something that I feared would happen because although on the bottle it says it’s made for curly hair I had doubts on whether it was for black curly hair. There is a difference between different types of curly hair and I’m not sure this spray was most fitting for me as far as keeping my hair curly.

A couple of days later (ignore my crooked broke glasses 😂😂😂)

Overall

I love getting products this way because it forces me to try products I wouldn’t normally buy. And now I can add a new hair product to my roster. Although it not help with the curls as much it did help keep my hair smelling good and moisturized. So I think I would purchase this. It cost about $12 at stores like target are Walmart. And if you click here you can see all the information about it from the Nexxus website.

How to wash a human hair wig

I recently bought my first “big girl” wig, meaning it was 100% human hair and cost over $100. It was hard to find because 1. I was trying to find it in a store and not online 2. I wanted a natural hair wig because I have natural hair and hate trying to gel down my edges and 3. initially I wasn’t trying to spend a lot of money on getting a new wig. I have had practically every hairstyle in the book so I have been excited to try out a new one.

Although this hair is natural, it is not the same texture as mine. This means that I can’t use the same type of product I use in my hair on this wig. I typically buy really thick curling creams for my hair since it’s 4c (extra kinky) but the curls in this wig are looser. I wanted to try and two stand twist my wig so I used my curling cream I use on my own hair on the wig. Big mistake! The hair looked shiny and it was weighed down. It no longer had that bounce that I loved. I knew I had to wash the wig. So I went to google because as I mentioned earlier, I’m new to this good wig game. I found some instructions on how to wash a human hair wig and I’d like to share them with you.

1. Brush/comb wig

2. Fill sink with cold water

3. Put a couple of drops of shampoo in there

Since this hair is human use quality shampoo and conditioner that relate to the hair on it (i.e. use shampoo/conditioner for curly hair if the wig is curly)

4. Turn wig inside out

They said to do this because most of the dirt and oil is in the cap of the wig because that’s closest to your head so it will make it easier to get that part clean

5. Place wig completely in water and let it soak for 5 minutes and drain water

6. Rinse wig with cold water until shampoo is completely gone

After 5 minutes was done
Water after shampoo

7. Apply conditioner directly on the wig

8. Wait two minutes then rinse with cold water

9. Turn wig right side out and squeeze the water out

Don’t twist or wring the wig out or it will get tangled and don’t brush the wig while it’s wet

10. Roll that wig in a towel to get out excess water

11. Apply your desired products

 I sprayed a leave in conditioner and an oil mist

12. Put the wig on a wig stand and let it air dry away from direct sunlight

When I first placed the wet wig on the wig stand I was concerned because it looked matted and all twisted up. I thought it would dry that way but thankfully it didn’t.

13. Brush the wig once it’s COMPLETELY dry

The wig looked normal and was clean again by the end. The only issue I had was frizz. I was very thankful to find some helpful tips!

I am not an expert in this field so I’d love as much feedback as possible. Is there a better way to wash a human hair wig or another tip somewhere in between I should be adding to this regimen? What are some great ways to maintain a human hair wig? And on a side note, where are some sites I could get an inexpensive (I’m willing to spend just not as much as I see sometimes when I look this up) but quality natural human hair wig? (Preferably 4c because that’s my texture.) And please don’t forget to like this post and follow my blog by pressing the button at the bottom of the page. Thanks!
