Product Review: Organic Root Stimulator HAIRepair Anti-Breakage Strength Creme

I received a sample of the Organic Root Stimulator (ORS) HAIRepair Intense Moisture Creme and the Anti-Breakage Creme in the mail a few weeks ago.  I used the ORS Moisturizing Hair lotion for a short time, and I still use it on my son's hair.  The lotion didn't do much for me, but I decided to try the cremes from this new HAIRepair line from ORS since I hadn't found a good moisturizer I could use consistently.  I thought this might be a good product to try, especially since I've been experiencing some breakage.

Product Description
Helps moisturize and strengthen weak and damaged hair.  Formulated with a blend of bamboo extract, shea butter, and other essential ingredients that have been known to help reduce breakage and dryness in natural and relaxed hair.  With continued use, hair will appear stronger with a beautiful, healthy-looking shine.

My Experience
I tried the Intense Moisture Creme sample first, and it didn't do much for my hair.   A couple of days later, I tried the Anti-Breakage Creme after I washed my hair and took my rollers out.  I applied a small amount to each section of hair, and I could tell that it immediately moisturized my hair.  I can hardly ever get my roots to a moisture level I want, but using this product has kept my entire strand moist and shiny.  I've also been struggling with my hair looking dull, and this moisturizer made my hair shine, even when I don't have a fresh black rinse to help.  This moisturizer is much different than the ORS Hair Lotion.  I don't like how the Lotion seems to sit on my hair, while the Anti-Breakage Creme feels like it id penetrating my.  I also don't like the way my hands feel after using the Lotion.  With the Anti-Breakage Creme, my hands do get a little oily, but they don't feel sticky or "greazy" like the Lotion does.  This moisturizer also doesn't weigh my hair down.  At all.

I've been using this moisturizer for 2 weeks, at least once a day, and I love it.  It is the best moisturizer I have used in a very long time.  I still seal with oil, but I'm not sure I need to.  My breakage has decreased dramatically, and my hair is even feeling stronger.  I went to my local beauty supply store and purchased a regular sized jar for $4.99, which I think is a steal!

great! Im so glad someone has written a review on this.. I too have been on the hunt for an inexpensive and effective hair moisturizer for my relaxed hair. Im looking for a super thick/ creamy one, I just wasted $$ on roots of nature hair dress that was so runny that all it did was wet my hair and revert my relaxed look. thanks for this!

Great review. I'm curious about this now. I've seen it around the BSS but I've been hesitant since there's protein in it. I'm happy it worked well for you!

I know I'm late but I googled a review and ended up here. I been using ORS Hairepair intense moisture creamed for about a month after MT hair started breaking off after a coloring. My hair don't take color well. But I'm also a stylist too. I love all ORS product before my transition to natural hair. Try there hair masque for dry and damaged hair. LOVE the way it makes the hair feel. Good luck on your journey!
