Product Review: Taliah Waajid Protective Mist Bodifier

Saturday, November 15, 2014

Promises: The Protective Mist Bodifier is a daily leave-in conditioner. Can also be used for comb-outs and detangling curly hair. Use on wet or dry hair. The Protective Mist Bodifier coats, protects and softens the curl patter. This results in easier to comb hair as well longer lasting styles. 

Directions for Daily Conditioning: Spray on scalp and hair from the root to the ends. Use at least three times a week for best results.

Directions for Comb Out/ Detangling: After completing steps 1-3 of the Black Earth System, towel dry hair and separate into large plaited sections, start at the nape area and un-plait one section at a time. Apply Protective Mist Bodifier to the hair in the un-plaited section. Comb through using a large toothcomb. Comb out from the ends and work up to the roots.

Water, Propylene Glycol, Glycerine 99.7%, Cetearyl Alcohol and Ceterium Bromide, Cetyl Alcohol, Olive Oil (Olea Europaea), Wheat Germ Extract (Triticum Vulgare), Caprylyl Glycol Phenoxyethanol, and Fragrance (Parfum).

Truth: I tend to share products with my sister as we are both on a hair journey. She tried this product and it was just "okay" for her. She told me to try it out to see if it was something I may like. Needless to say, I was a bit skeptical due to the Olive oil already in the ingredients. This reminded me of the New Scurl No Drip Ingredients - which did not work well with me. Fortunately, this product was the opposite of what I had imagined! For the past couple months, I've been spraying it in my roots and my ends (as a moisturizer) - my hair feels soft and retains moisture easily. It reminds me of Scurl No Drip Activator due to the Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, and Cetearyl Alcohol. It's a great alternative. I love the fragrance! It's not overbearing at all.  It smells like a mixture of coconuts and fruit. It's a nice subtle scent that lingers in your hair. The consistency is similar to Scurl No Drip Activator, however, it's a little thinner and transparent. I find the detangling properties in this product slightly weak. I would not use this product for detangling purposes. Bonus, it's silicone free too! I would definitely re-purchase.

  1. Hi Sunshyne, I have about 2 or 3 bottles of this in my stash. It didn't work well for me as a detangler back in the day. I no longer need a detangler but I do need a moisturizer for my braids. It worked well for that. So, I will try it again soon (after I run out of the original SCurl) for spritzing my braids while I protective style in wigs. Oh and, the New SCurl is awful for my hair and especially my scalp -- it irritates my scalp for whatever reason.

    1. Yeah I find the detangling properties are very weak. It's very moisturizing to use as a daily moisturizer and even for your braids. Let me know how it works for you. Yes, the new Scurl No a drip formula seems to be disagreeing with everyone's hair. I don't know why they had to change it :(
