I won’t lie. I am a sucker for packaging just as long as the product is legit. IGK Smoke and Mirrors has both; excellent packaging and a wonderful product for curly, damaged or just generally unruly hair.
I am ALWAYS, I repeat ALWAYS skeptical of a cleansing oil or a 2-in-1. I’ve heard the Wen horror stories, nothankyou. But Smoke and Mirrors is different. It’s an extremely gentle, effective cleanser that sweeps away dirt while nourishing your scalp with a cocktail of coconut oil and powerful hydrators.
I’ve been going lighter and lighter with my locks and I am constantly looking for anything that won’t damage them. I was wearing my hair curly for a while and let me tell you, Smoke and Mirrors was an absolute dream come true for my curls. Bouncy, no frizz, shiny and just overall very healthy looking. For wearing my hair straight after my Keratin treatment, it’s great for every-other-day washes as it doesn’t strip my hair or damage it further. It untangles unruly knots and leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny.
I use about a quarter size amount and massage it into my scalp, like a shampoo. It doesn’t bubble or create any suds, it feel just like conditioner. It will feel like there isn’t enough product but it will all work out in the end. You can apply a little extra to the ends of your hair, if you feel like it needs a little more love. I like to leave the product on for a minute or two, then I rinse. As you rinse it, you will feel how smooth and silky your hair is! Your hair will look shinier and it feels clean! Even after towel drying, I don’t feel the need to apply a leave-in conditioner or any other conditioning product. This folks, is a miracle product.
You can purchase IGK products at Sephora.
