Thoughts on gud Red Ruby Groovy line:
I'm really in love with these scents. I have the body lotion and body wash as well. These have a super sweet scent that is paired with wild thyme for a sexy, romantic, upbeat feeling. I love how sweet these smell without me feeling that these products are meant for 12 year old girls as some fruity products are. This is just beyond wonderful and is a very affordable and natural product. I love using the shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and body lotion before bed. It really is a soothing and yet uplifting scent. My hair also looks really great when using the shampoo and conditioner  It is definitely manageable, softer and smoother. This is my new favorite fruit scented product. 

Rene Furterer Paris: The company philosophy and vision of the creator, Rene Furterer was that natural products are best for the health of your hair. The brand uses pure essential oils and plant extracts for optimal results. 
Vegetal Finishing Spray 

About: Naturally sets hair for styles with movement. The spray adds a satin looking final touch on any style to deliver results. Cakile extract to maintain hydration at the core of the hair and Vitamin B5 for moisture. Aroma: Lemon, Grapefruit, Lily of the valley, Woody elements.

My thoughts: This is a good hairspray that gets the job done. I had nice control with this product without my hair feeling like a helmet head! The only issue I had was that the fragrance was a little bit strong for me. Woody elements can be hard for my allergies to take sometimes.

Karite No Rinse Repairing Serum

About: An ultimate repairing leave-in delivers intense, long-lasting nutrition to damaged hair ends while protecting against split ends, leaving hair renewed and smooth. 20% Karité oil (Shea): Rich in EFA (essential fatty acids), nutrition and restructuring, natural UV filter. Plant oil to smooth down hair ends. Aroma: Orange, Verbena, Orange blossom, Vanilla.

My thoughts: When testing out products, I like to test them out in many different ways. I used this serum on wet and dry hair, curly and straight. I found it to work well in any situation. When applied to my ends when my hair is wet, there is a noticeable smoothing effect and a positive change in appearance in my ends. I would use the remainder of the product on my hands throughout the rest of my hair and noticed my hair looked smoother and shinier. Although this is a serum, it has more of a white cream appearance.  This does have a perfumey fragrance as well, but this seems to blend in better probably since it is concentrated on my ends and was not irritating to me.
