I met the lovely Curls & Mo recently and sent her the whole Nothing But line to try. Her favorite? Nothing But Clarifying Shampoo!
As always, I washed my hair in four sections. I applied the shampoo to each individual section, rinsed it, applied again, rinsed then added my conditioner. The shampoo worked into a really good lather and rinsed out nicely. My hair was clean but not stripped which I LOVE. It didn’t leave the “squeaky” feeling other clarifiers leave. I liked that because my hair didn’t feel like straw after I washed it.
And the cons? None!

What an amazing review from the Style & Beauty Doctor! She loves Curl Sealer – see an excerpt from her blog below, and read the whole thing here!
I was all excited but knew I had to try it on my whole head so once I took the weave out, I gave it a whirl and it was all like WHY HAVEN’T I KNOWN ABOUT THIS BEFORE??? I like to use it after applying a leave-in conditioner and then I’ll take a dollop of Curl Sealer and massage it all over. And again, my hair is all hydrated and soft and unlike the painfully dry way it can get sometimes.
A few months ago, Nothing But gave away a fabulous trip to Taste of Soul in LA! The event was just a few weeks ago – winner Keisha Cave shared photos and her experience at her personal consultation and appointment with the illustrious natural-hair celebrity stylist Felicia Leatherwood. She flew from Tampa to Los Angeles and had the time of her life!
In her own words:
“I don’t know where to start. I am still very much in shock that I won the trip to begin with. Whoever it was that pulled my name, I am so grateful. I was really overdue for a vacation. I loved Felicia Leatherwood, she was super nice and down to earth….good people if I must say. I have been using the Nothing But product line on a regular [basis] for myself and my daughter and I LOVE the products. Words can’t express how pleased and happy I was with the trip.”
I love love love that Felicia donned her own Nothing But t-shirt for the occasion, too! Felicia also told me she wore it during her recent trip to Nigeria. Spreading the natural hair love worldwide!
