2 Weeks Post Relaxer: First Impressions Of Dessange Paris Oleo Collection

(I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes but all opinions are my own.)
 
One of my 2015 hair goals is to limit the number of new hair products I try. I've been doing a pretty good job with that, but couldn't resist trying some new hair products I received in my fourth VoxBox from Influenster. The products are from a brand I hadn't before - Dessange.

Dessange Paris has a few collections based on various hair needs and Influensters received either the Oleo Replenishing Collection or the California Blonde Collection. Can you guess which one I got? It was the Oleo Replenishing Collection. Influenster was smart to send a survey to all who qualified for the VoxBox to determine which collection was best suited for each recipient.

I've always been someone who gets something new and can't wait to use it. This VoxBox was no different and I used the Oleo Collection during my wash day.

I started off with a pre-poo by deep conditioning with Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner and my Hot Head Microwavable Deep Conditioning Cap. I got a bit distracted and ended up pre-pooing for two hours which resulted in moisturized hair.

After pre-pooing I cleansed my relaxed hair with the Dessange Paris Oleo Miracle Replenishing Shampoo. I was wary of this shampoo as it has sulfates and I've been staying away from them. Also, I had just clarified last week. 


My first take on the shampoo is it's good for what it is. My hair felt cleansed, slightly dry, but I was expecting that. It has a slightly artificial orange smell which did make my hair smell fresh. It's got a gel-like texture and is kind of runny.

For my conditioner, I used the Dessange Paris Oleo Miracle Replenishing Conditioner. I liked the smell of conditioner better than the shampoo. It worked alright, no complaints, but it also didn't blow me away.

After rinsing out the conditioner I blotted the excess water with a t-shirt for 30 minutes and then moved on you adding my final products to my hair. The moisturizer I used was the Nothing But Melted Shea Butter. I used the Dessange Paris Oleo Miracle Replenishing Oil as my sealant. At first, I thought the oil made my hair feel greasy. That was a temporary feeling. It actually made my hair feel a bit dry. I'm probably not going to use it again.

I then got my hair about 90% dry using my blow dryer on the cool setting.

All-in-all the wash day went well despite my hair not really liking these products. Will I use the Dessange products again? I'm not sure. If I do, I will work the individual products into my routine and not use the collection solo.

Have you ever used any of the Dessange products?
