I haven't been doing much with C's hair lately and I've been busy visiting family and having computer problems on top of it, but hopefully now I can get back on track with my blogging!
We went to Target today and I decided to find the Dove Nutritive Therapy system. I knew that the ingredients would be less than perfect, but I was still planning to buy at least one of the Nutritive Therapy products. Of course the shampoo was out because of all the sulfates. Since I like Dove products so much for my own hair, I decided that I wasn't going to read the ingredients of the leave in smoothing cream- I was just going to buy it. Well, when I got home I wished I would have checked the ingredients over a little! This 'nurturing' oil has mineral oil and petrolatum in it- I definitely can't use this for C's hair :(
Appearance: Creamy, yellow color- one plus is it smells VERY nice!
Description: Controls frizz & boosts shine even in humid conditions.Revolutionary weightless nutri-oils:
- Smoothes uplifted cuticles that cause frizz
- Deeply nourishes
- Leaves hair easier to manage and style

I was very disappointed because as I said, I really like Dove products for my own hair! I don't even read the ingredients when a product is going to be used only for my hair because I actually need a shampoo with sulfates or my hair is too oily, and I don't use or need anything special for my hair so I pretty much could care less- unless it's Mineral Oil or Petrolatum.
Obviously there are more harmful ingredients than good! I won't be making that mistake again!
Do you ever buy products without looking at the ingredients?
