Check out the video from EmpressRi for her review on Qhemet Biologics. It was her review that got me motivated enough to go buy this stuff. Back in February, I did a post about my journey to obtain a few Qhemet Biologics products. We are now at the end of April, meaning that I’ve been using QB for two months now. I feel comfortable with writing a review that I won’t later regret or have second thoughts on. As mentioned in the previous post, Qhemet Biologics can be difficult to get your hands on, depending on whether the website has it or not. I bought four items and have used them ever since, so I feel comfortable sharing my experience with what I’ve been putting in my hair. Here’s the review:
Egyptian Wheatgrass Cleansing Tea- The lavender scent is the first thing you notice when you open the bottle. It is a SLS-free, clarifying, gentle shampoo. I like it, I do, but for $13 per bottle, I’m not completely sold. I can see myself trying something else after I finish it.
Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee-I can not see myself without this product. It works wonderfully at detangling, and it smells like chocolate. It makes dry combing a breeze, especially if you use a Denman brush. My hair feels baby soft after adding this product to it. I think it would be great for anyone who doesn’t want to wet their hair just to comb it without pain. It has definitely helped with combing out my daughter’s tangles.
Olive & Honey Hydrating Balm- It really does feel just like honey. I am somewhat divided on this product. It does exactly what it claims: it moisturizes. My hair is so shiny and moisturized that it looks like it’s still wet even when it isn’t. And it does all this without letting my hair look limp. My small issue with the product is that it really does look, feel and smell like some olive oil and honey whipped together. It has the consistency of honey, with the hue of olive oil. I can’t help but look at it and think, “I can make this.” A jar of it will last forever, but when it runs out, I plan to whip up my own batch. It is best to use O&HHB when your hair is still wet or damp after washing. You don’t want to put this stuff in everyday between washes else it will get tacky/gummy.
Amla & Olive Heavy Cream-This product is QB’s best seller. I bought the Heavy Cream because I didn’t want to keep conditioner in my hair in order to keep my curls weighed down. I needed something that was as thick as conditioner, but preferably without all the chemicals. My co-worker, who turned me on to Qhemet, warned me that the Amla & Olive Heavy Cream is very, very thick. It is. It is thicker than the richest conditioner you can call to mind. Not every one can handle the richness of the heavy cream, which is why the company introduced the Burdock Root Butter Cream. I don’t own that one, but have heard good things about it.
I use the products individually, depending on my hair need of the day. When I am wearing my hair curly, I use them together. I take out a portion of the Ghee, Hydrating Balm and Heavy Cream and mix it thoroughly. Then I take my little mixture into the shower with me and use it in the place of a conditioner. I leave it in (this stuff is expensive, do not wash it out!) and wrap my hair in my curl-ease towel. By the time I unwrap, I have perfect curls that stay defined and silky. Hooray!
