Product Review | nuNAAT "Real Me" Collection


The nice folks at nuNAAT sent me some products to review! Check out my experience:

1. Lather Up & Hydrate Shampoo:

Description: Cleanses and moisturizes multi-textured hair without weighing it down, leaving it silky soft and easier to style. Strengthens hair and maintains a healthy scalp, promoting intense shine. With our exclusive Join Complex®, the secret to ultimate moisture and shine. This perfect blend of 5 natural oils nourishes and hydrates hair fibers for softer, more manageable hair.

My Opinion: The entire "Real Me" collection has a bit of a masculine smell, which I don't mind, but it's not necessarily my favorite scent. The shampoo cleansed my hair and scalp without leaving my hair feeling stripped, which is always a plus since I do feel the need to use shampoo at least a couple times a month.

Rating: 4/5

2. Real Moisture Conditioner

Description: Softens, hydrates and detangles wavy to kinky textures without weighing hair down. Eliminates frizz for a longer period of time. Formulated with our exclusive Join Complex®, the secret to ultimate moisture and shine. This perfect blend of 5 natural oils extracted from nuts, fruits and green collagen nourishes and hydrates hair fibers for softer, more manageable hair.

My Opinion: The top two things I look for in a conditioner are slip and how soft/moisturized my hair air dries after I rinse out the conditioner. This conditioner has good slip, so detangling was a breeze,  and it didn't leave my hair feeling dry and thirsty after I rinsed it out-- unlike some other conditioners.

Rating: 4.5/5

3. Pick Me Up Sheen:

Description: Softens and protects multi-textured hair, leaving it intensely shiny and easy to style. Controls frizz without leaving behind residue. Ideal if used before flat-ironing or blow-drying, or throughout the day to restore vitality. With our exclusive Join Complex®, the secret to ultimate moisture and shine. This perfect blend of 5 natural oils nourishes and hydrates hair fibers for softer, more manageable hair.

My Opinion: I used this more during the time I had a sew-in. After I blow dried and flat ironed my leave out, I applied this serum to make my hair blend with the weave, as well as to prevent frizz. For the most part, this serum left my hair smooth with no flyways; however, I did have to reapply it a few times.

Rating: 3.5/5

4. Blast of Shine Hair Mask:

Description: Defines natural curly textures, moisturizing hair and eliminating frizz. Intensely nourishes hair, leaving it silky and shiny. Controls excessive volume and fly-aways. With our exclusive Join Complex®, the secret to ultimate moisture and shine. This perfect blend of 5 natural oils nourishes and hydrates hair fibers for softer, more manageable hair.

My Opinion: I deep conditioned with this mask without heat, and I can't say that my hair was shinier, however, it felt hydrated and a little stronger, which is great because I'm always trying to find a balance between moisturized, yet strong hair. And, as with the conditioner, detangling with this mask was easy-- nice slip.

Rating: 4/5


5. Natural Curl Activator:

Description: Keeps hair hydrated and frizz-free for an extended period of time. Protects hair against harsh environmental conditions and prevents breakage. Ideal for daily use. With our exclusive Join Complex®, the secret to ultimate moisture and shine. This perfect blend of 5 natural oils nourishes and hydrates hair fibers for softer, more manageable hair.

My Opinion: I'm  usually not a fan of most "curl activators," and it's because although I love the idea of wash 'n gos, I don't really have "wash 'n go hair." Because of this, curl activators don't really have a place in my regimen; my hair is usually left a dry, undefined, shrunken mess. This curl activator didn't dry out my hair, but it didn't activate my curls-- probably because of the thin consistency.

Rating: 3.5/4

6. Perfect Do Pomade:
Description: Tames even the kinkiest of hair textures without weighing it down. Moisturizes for a healthy scalp. Prevents hair breakage and provides smooth edge control. Ideal for dry hair and/or chemically processed hair. With our exclusive Join Complex®, the secret to ultimate moisture and shine. This perfect blend of 5 natural oils nourishes and hydrates hair fibers for softer, more manageable hair.
My Opinion: I was kind of surprised that this is labeled as a "pomade" because the consistency is thinner than pomades that I'm used to-- this pomade is a ta
d thicker than typical conditioners/deep conditioners. I instantly knew that it wasn't going to slick down any kinky edges of mine, but that didn't stop me from using it for something else-- twistouts. I used the pomade for flat twists, and my resulting twist out was light, defined, and fluffy-- I loved it! This is one of my favorite products from the entire line--even if I can't use it for its intended purpose.

Rating: 4.5/5

Glimpse of twistout with nuNAAT products.

  1. Your hair looks nice but I would have never thought to pick these up. The packaging does nothing for me. It looks like the majority received good marks. Would you repurchase with your own money?

    *off topic* I always forget how pretty you are because you rarely post pics of yourself.

    1. No, I would not repurchase with my own money simply because I'm not a fan of the smell or ingredients, and I have staples that I'd prefer to use. I also agree with your point that the packaging wouldn't necessarily catch my eye if I were to see these products in a store. The products are decent. I just wouldn't feel the need to repurchase most of them.

      Thank you for the compliment! ;-)
