As a Latina woman 36 years old, with long curly hair, I’m always searching for new styling creams to treat (especially if the product has been reviewed and recommended by TIA). So I wanted to try the Paste Ahnesti authoriti whipped ($ 24 in the shop).
Before purchasing a product, I look through the list of ingredients to ensure that it is free of harmful chemicals and contains all natural ingredients, then I confirm that all of them are classified as “low risk “by the Environmental Working Group. While a review of the whipped paste Ahnesti authoriti done, I found that most of its ingredients, such as plant extracts and natural butters, are classified as “low risk”. However, I found a couple of ingredients classified as “moderate risk” including potassium sorbate and SD Alcohol 40-A . Although moderately harmful, according to the EWG, I would prefer that these two ingredients were not part of this product.
I was hoping that the product has more of a creamy consistency, but instead it was like putting pure butter in my hair. Following the application instructions, I applied to wet hair – as I always do with any styling cream – and shaped my curls using my fingers. The result was horrible! My hair looked dull and dirty, once dry, as if he had not showered for a month. I expect styling products to have the opposite effect, making the hair shiny and polished look.
I just whipped Ahnesti authoriti paste is used once, but it was enough for me to decide that I do not like at all. Maybe it would work for other types of hair, but unfortunately I would not recommend to anyone.
