It’s that time of year again, where your hair tells you that you are not her boss and it will frizz as much as it wants to. I am not naturally skilled at doing hair, styling my hair in general is a struggle and the humidity in the summer only amplifies this. I’ve been using It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin for years now, I had first heard about it in interview where Gabrielle Union sang its praises. Now my hair is going through a bit of a blah stage and I thought why not switch up my products for a while. I didn’t want a product totally opposite of It’s a 10 since I enjoy the anti-frizz benefits and how it has helped strengthen my hair. I buy the It’s a 10 from Trade Secrets. While in the store, I asked an associate if they had a similar product that she would recommend . So, let me introduce you to Revlon Professional’s Uniq One Treatment.

Both products provide similar benefits:

Benefits of It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin (find full details on their website)

  • Protects against heat
  • Restores hydration balance
  • Detangles
  • Defrizzes and adds shine
  • Strengthens hair structure and
  • Seals cuticles for extra silky hair

Benefits of Revlon Professional Uniq One Treatment (find full details on their website)

  • Repair for dry and damaged hair
  • Easier brushing and ironing
  • Shine and frizz control
  • Incredible Detangling
  • Heat Protection
  • Long-Lasting hairstyle
  • Silkiness and smoothness
  • Split Ends prevention
  • Hair colour protection/UVA and UVB Filters
  • Adds Body

The Revlon treatment is quite thick and viscous, you have to shake it out before spraying it in your hair. It’s definitely more hydrating then It’s a 10; I feel that the It’s a 10 gives me more of an airy, wispy look while Revlon holds a style better; it controls my hair since the oils in the product weighs it down a bit. I would not recommend this product for anyone with thin hair, it would make it too greasy. It’s perfect for women with thick, curly or coarse hair. It’s a keeper and I definitely think I will enjoy using it even more in the winter.

I went to Trade Secrets the other day to purchase my beloved Morrocanoil Treatment Original and while walking in I spotted the Kardashian Beauty products from the corner of my eye. I turned, peaked and then continued towards the Morrocanoil section – so yeah, I majorly judged. The sales associate saw me and suggested I try their products. And I was all like “Na uh, do you see the thickness up above, Kardashian beauty will not tame this.” After twenty minutes, she totally convinced me and there I was at the cash register purchasing the Kardashian Beauty Dry Seed Oil and the Take 2 Dry Conditioner.

You have to understand that using an oil other than my Morrocanoil is a big deal to me, I never, ever cheat on her. The Kardashian Dry Seed Oil is hella amazing! It’s thick and absorbs well without leaving a greasy film. I apply it on air-dried hair after my leave-in conditioner, right before I’m about to blow dry. My hair feels like silk! And then I add a few other drops after straightening my hair to add some shine. It tames the frizz and keeps my hair smooth throughout the day. I can do without the smell though, it’s very strong and it’s a bit like male cologne, but it doesn’t linger too long.

The Take 2 Dry Conditoner seems like a nice idea, but I’m still trying to figure out how to best incorporate it into my routine since I use the oil the same way I’d use the dry conditioner. So far, I enjoy it best when I’m having a low-key hair day, I can spritz, add some needed moisture to my hair and go. But for the days that I take the time to style my hair, I prefer the Dry Seed Oil for a sleek look.

I’m empty and dare I say I’ll be buying more of the Kardashian Beauty products (I’m sorry Morrocanoil). The price is fair and the products are phenomenal.

Let me know below if you’ve tried any of the Kardashian Beauty products.
