The one product everyone should have in their stash

I'm writing this post as public service announcement to everyone I know.  I don't want to be the cause of people going out and buying more product, but I still feel obligated to share this message, especially after an interesting Facebook exchange I had this week.

The product I'm talking about is It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In.  I've written about this product a couple of times before but I don't think I've truly expressed how import it is to me.  It all started when I saw a video of Tia Williams proclaiming her adoration for It's a 10 after it melted away her tangles.  So I went out and got it.  What I LOVE about this product is that it does it's job.  I bought it for one reason and one reason only, to deal with my tangles.  And that it does.

Whenever I have stubborn tangles, that once before would worry me, I simply walk over to my product stash and reach for my trusty friend.  A couple of days ago, I was contacted by a young lady who found herself in a dilemma when her hair matted up after removing her braids. My advice was to try using oil during the detangling process and, if she could, go out and by It's a 10 Leave In.  Turns out the young lady just happened to have a sample size of the product handy from her birch box kit. It was sitting there, unused, awaiting this special day.

I requested a follow up report after she used the product to let me know if it worked for her like it did for me and Tia.  The next day, I received an update.  She was able to rid herself of all the tangles using her sample sized savior.  What if fate hadn't intervened allowing her to have a bottle for  this very moment?  In her earlier message, she threatened to cut her hair if the issue hadn't been resolved.  Haven't we all been there? Suffering from tangles so severe that we figure cutting them is the only way out?  I dunno about you but I have. Now, when I get extreme tangling, I smile to myself knowing that in moments, the tangles will be a thing of the past (with very few casualties).

So that is why I'm recommending that everyone have this product on hand just in case.  I don't break out my bottle often, but when I do, I'm so glad I have it.  One thing I haven't done is actually use it as a leave-in which I will experiment with next wash day.  I'm not quite sure if I should test out their "lite version" of the leave-in for my roller set or stick with the original.  I'm also wondering about the rest of the product line since I already enjoy the original and the Keratin version..  After reading that Gabrielle Union swears by the It's a 10 conditioner, I'm contemplating  if I should try it for myself.

  1. This post is so timely! A while back, I purchased Phyto's Blow Dry Set! The shampoo and conditioner were not memorable, but their botanical Hair Relaxing Balm worked miracles! The product doesn't actually relax your hair, nor was I interested in that since I'm a natural. But its detangling properties are magical. I just used it after my leave in on my kinky curly hair and.. Poof! Gone! And it gives a sheen like no other! Anyways I've been saying I need to pick up the serum again, and this is the perfect sign. I just hope it works the same way. Thx for the reminder Nadege!

  2. Yes this is my favorite leave in conditioner. I love their whole line of products. Seriously amazing!

  3. Girl, this is the second product in like two days I have put on the list to buy.
    I know those tangles especially when I take out braids. I will definitely invest in this.
    Thanks for all sharing all your wise knowledge.
    P.S where am I most likely to find this product, sallys or walmart?

  4. Hi Maureen. You may check to see if Target has it. I know you can find it at Ulta for sure. Not sure if Walmart carries this line. Don't think Sally's has it either.

  5. I love Mane n Tail. I might give this one a try. Thanks for sharing.

  6. At the Walmart salon my stylist uses this leave in on my hair. I only go in for a taper but she demands to wash my hair each time. I love this product but too cheap to purchase, it's not reasonably priced for every day use (IMO)

  7. I love love love It's a 10 too! A little goes a long way and it's perfect for misbehaving hair in a long stretch. My hair didn't seem to care for the +Keratin version though...
