Say Yes to Tomatoes: No Thanks

Friday after my pedicure I stop into Ross to see what what I could possibly find a reason to spend money on.  I walked around the store and a few things stood out as desirable but one thing in particular caught my eye.  being part of the natural hair community is very important to me.  Besides becoming a Pescatarian, going natural is one of the best decisions I have ever made.  With that said, a lot of people in that community have been talking about this line of natural products called, Yes to Carrots/Cucumbers/Tomatoes. Well Ross has Yes to Tomatoes conditioner for 2.99.  I mean who could pass up 10 dollar conditioner. staring you in the face screaming to the top of its lungs, "I'm 2.99 fool...don't you dare walk out of here without me!"

Needless to say, I bought it.  I went to work and all I could think about was going home to co-wash with Yes to Tomatoes.  Kids were talking to me and telling me stories on the playground but I just could not get this stuff off of my mind!  When I got home I made fish tacos (which I have decided I don't care for unless the fish is grilled Tilapia...Blue Coast Burrito sucks.)...then played a little Move on the PlayStation 3 with my husband.  By the time I worked up a sweat and decided to hop in the shower, the bottle of conditioner was calling my name!  So prepped for my wash.  Upon opening the conditioner no fragrance knocked me down.  I thought, "hmmm it has pleasant aroma but I like the small delightful hint of deliciousness that is tickling my nostrils right now", so I had to give it a mental check plus on the smell and the overall feeling it gave me upon smelling it.

Then I put it on. Slip was excellent, it went on smooth.  I feel my hair getting softer and softer.  Unfortunately, what I didn't feel was my curls popping!  Ugh!  For seriously YTT???  SO you are just going to smell fab but not define my curls.  Hmmm...OK.  This bottle of conditioner will need to be spruced up, I'm not giving it a check because I can't use it alone without anything being added to it and it working effectively.  


Love the price (2.99 Ross)
Love the smell (hint of deliciousness)
Love the slip (gave my hair the desired texture)
No curl definition (being that I'm all about my curls this failed me)


I still suggest it to you all.  My followers are of many different ethnic backgrounds, with many different hair textures.   Give it a try it you want soft manageable hair.  

I prefer my hair to be soft, wild and unmanageable!
