Ettenio Hair Goodies Update.

Hey precious ones.
It's been over a month since I was given the opportunity to try out some Ettenio products, so I feel like I've been sufficiently acquainted with them to give my opinion. Overall I had a pleasant experience with the products but I'll give my detailed, individual analysis of each.
The five products I received for trial
Moisture Infusion (deep conditioner) - Very light, pleasant fragrance, not overpowering at all. The consistency too, is light and reminds me of when I whip up a DIY, it really is like whipped frosting or something. It is indeed quite moisturizing, but if you are looking for slip this bad boy is not the one. I suppose you could add some oil to it, but it really didn't pose an issue for me. I actually enjoyed this deep conditioner as is. I used it as a moisturizer a couple times and that worked out well too.
Purity (shampoo) - preface: I am not a shampoo girl, I have very few that I love and this one did not convert me, sorry. The smell is a tad bit strong, smells like fever grass or so. The good thing though is that it doesn't linger. The consistency is rather thick which makes it difficult to escape from the bottle while pumping. I had to unscrew the pump and shake the contents out. I also had to use a whole lot to cover my entire hair. Performance-wise though, it does the job.
Moisture Milk (daily moisturizing spray) - I like this one quite a bit. As the name suggests, it is held in a spray bottle, which made me expect a more water-like product. However, it actually sits in the middle between water and a creamy moisturizer, so don't go spraying this directly into your hair as it doesn't mist very well. Instead I spray it into my hands and them apply it to my hair. It sinks into my hair nicely and my hair drinks it up.
Twenty Four 7 (balancing leave-in) - My favorite scent of the products I tried, very mellow and mild. This too, is light and appears to be of that whipped consistency. It works really well. No complaints or drawbacks here.
Seal & Shine Serum - Does it's job very well. It's is super light and doesn't weigh the hair down. My straight hair loved it!! The citrus-esque smell is a little strong, but it's not too overpowering.
After approximately 6 weeks of use, the shampoo and deep conditioner are almost done, but the other three products still have a lot of use left in them.
Overall, the Ettenio brand has some really good products. However, while the packaging is aesthetically appealing, I don't know if some of them are very practical or are a good fit for the contents. Nonetheless, I will continue to use those which are not finished and I would go out and purchase them again and also try out some others which I have yet to try.

Thanks again to the proprietor for allowing me to test out her merchandise.
