My thoughts:
I used all four products today and absolutely love them. I know my hair pretty well, so I tweaked the directions a bit. I first used the shampoo which comes out as a creme shampoo unlike others I've seen. This is sulfate free which usually means minimal lathering, but this product had a pretty decent lather. Next I actually used the masque and I left this in for about 3-5 minutes. I rinsed this out with cold water and applied a smaller amount of the conditioner. I let the conditioner sit in my hair for about 1 minute and then rinsed it out. 

Once out of the shower, I applied a dime sized amount of the conditioner back into my hair. I do this sometimes because my natural curls need that additional moisture and conditioning, especially in winter, and I've found a lot of natural conditioners work really well as leave in products too. I then applied about a quarter sized amount of the leave in treatment which is a clear serum and smells amazing! I used a little more than directed on my towel dried hair, but again because of my hair type, it just soaks it right up. This is also such a lightweight oil that it didn't leave my hair greasy or feeling weighed down at all. 

I let my hair dry naturally. The only other product I used was some frizz hairspray with coconut oil. I found my hair was so amazingly soft and really really manageable without using any other products. This usually doesn't happen with my curls! They take a little bit more finessing. I also noticed that my curls seemed to dry a little looser which I actually love.

I then wanted to see how these products looked when my hair was straight. I did use an additional heat protectant just because my hair has had some damage from a chemical product I used over a year ago and so I'm always extra cautious. I also applied some of the leave in serum on my dry hair after flat ironing, especially concentrating on the ends. This smoothed away any fly aways or frizzes and gave me some extra shine. I actually love using this on dry hair as well. 
Finished result when straight:

As you can see, these products were really a win for my hair. I'm so glad I had the chance to test out this brand. I've never tried it before and I'm so glad I have now! The price may be more than you normally would pay, but its actually extremely reasonable compared to most of the other natural/organic/vegan/argan oil hair lines I've tried!

Yours In Trubeauty,
