Not Your Mother's Hair Care Review

I was in walmart not too long ago picking up some christmas decorations for the house and ended up in the hair aisle... like I always do... and stumbled upon a new brand of products called NYM (Not Your Mothers). Everything in the line retails for under $5 at Walmart, so it's certainly affordable... but is it actually any good? Hell to the yes... go grab you some lol

I picked up four of the 6 items that my local walmart had (passed on the thickening spray and the tease me hairspray... I don't need any thicker or teased hair LOL). I have not used the KINKY MOVES curl cream yet, so I'll have to review it separately when it stops raining and I can go back to my standard wash 'n wear curls... but here's the rest of the review for ya'll.

All of the items have a GREAT scent to them. I'm usually rather sensitive to scents, and while it's fairly strong, the raspberry smell did not bother me when I was using the products. And it made my hair smell great even after heat styling. I started out by applying the SMOOTH MOVES cream to just washed, damp hair and combing through before spraying my entire head with the BEAT THE HEAT protectant & blowing my hair dry. Neither product left any stickyness or waxy residue on my hair like alot of the blow dry lotions/creams do. I noticed that my hair got pretty darn straight in a shorter amount of time than usual (as my hair holds water something awful)... which was a plus! 

Next, I parted my hair into 4 sections and used my brazilian heat flat iron to straighten my hair, freshly applying more BEAT THE HEAT protectant spray as I went along. Again, NO sticky feeling or white residue on my hair... and for ONCE my hair smelled of raspberries and NOT hot hair (you know what I mean?). I ended up pin curling my hair for the night and  set it with the ALL EYES ON ME hairspray and wrapped it up for the night. When I woke up in the morning, I had beautiful, shiny, bouncy curls that still had a hint of raspberry smell to them LOL. 

I so LOVE this line and the products I've tried and will making them a staple in my haircare routine from now on. I know walmart tends to switch out lines pretty often (or at least my store does), so I will be going back and grabbing multiples before I can't find them anywhere else. I did a search for this line and came up with some ridiculous prices for these products, which were being sold in salons, so your local walmart is the best bargain for these amazing products.

Had you ever heard of the NOT YOUR MOTHERS hair care products before? If you've tried them, what do you think about them?


  1. Ive heard of the line, but this is the first review ive seen for it.
    Good to know it works and that i can get it for a great price! The packaging is pretty cool too~

  2. Oh wow. I've never heard of this line before. It looks like it did wonders for you! Your hair came out amazingly.

  3. Hi,
    You can find NYMBrands at www.nymbrands.com, on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/NYMBrands on twitter @Nymbrands and YouTube (NymBrands).

  4. Thank you! The quality of the products makes you think they were drunk when they made the retail price LOL I hope it stays that low, because this is a brand I plan on sticking with... if only they made shampoos & conditioners.... anybody check the site out?

  5. more products will come in 2011 (but not shampoos and conditioners as a start).
    more Walmart stores will also carry the line (if your Walmart store runs out of inventory you can always ask them to take in more!).
