Lusters Pink Hair Lotion Review
Luster's Pink Oil Moisturizer Hair Lotion
Lusters' Pink Hair Lotion has been around for as long as I can remember doing my own hair. I must admit that for most of that time I've tried this product two or three times. I could never figure out just the right amount to put on my relaxed hair before it looked wet and greasy.
Since I've gone natural in April 2010, I've decided to revisit this product.
Pink Oil Moisturizer Hair Lotion Usage
This hair lotion should be used to stop hair breakage, it should condition dry hair and scalp. It states that it helps to prevent split ends. It is also used to prevent damage to hair when applying heat to your hair.
I have noticed that users, who were children when this product was used by the mothers, claim that the Pink Oil grew their hair to great lenghts. Some felt that this happened partially because the Pink Oil kept the hair "wet," moisturizes the hair and scalp.
Pros and Cons
Most African American young girls were reared with the product which yielded great results and or faithful to its usage despite the fact that it has mineral oil as an ingredient.
This hair lotion can be used on caucasian hair as well as biracial and african american hair.
Product works well when heat is applied.
Mineral Oil and Petroleum are two products that most natural (and relaxed) hair wearers try not to put on their hair because these ingredients do not allow the hair to absorb moisture. Mineral oil has been termed "the killer of African American hair."
A "good moisturizer" should penetrate the hair shaft and infuse the hair strands with moisture.
It has the tendency to "weigh down" medium to fine hair and making it appear/look greasy.

Where to Buy This Product

I have tried using this product since going natural and it seemed to work well when applied wet and under a gel product. However, I'm more comfortable with a more natural product.
