The Beauty Diaries: The Gold System by Andre Walker Hair

Last week was a bit of a busy week for Fashion of Philly so I didn't get a chance to post something for The Beauty Diaries so here it is. My latest hair experience was with The Gold System created by Oprah's Emmy Award Winning Personal Hair Stylist, Andre Walker. As I had explained in previous posts this month, my hair is in its natural state or not relaxed so I've been trying to find fitting products that work well with my hair type.

The Andre Walker Gold System consist of four products: The Ultimate Moisture Shampoo ($18), the TKO Ulitimate Moisture Conditioner ($22), the Get It Straight Styling Creme ($22) and the Beautiful Kinks Styling Creme Gelee ($22). I love the packaging which is a beautiful gold and dark brown with the words Make Peace With Your Hair on the container with peace signs. All of the products have a natural, fresh and clean scent, not at all fruity or overbearing. All of the products contain a Natural Mongongo Oil Blend and three out of the four products are for dry, course or kinky hair, while the Get It Straight Styling Creme can be used for styling all types of hair. 

To begin, of course, I started by using The Gold System shampoo and conditioner which was very creamy and moisturizing. One thing I did notice in comparison with the other products I've been using is that I had to use a bit more product to work up a lather into my hair. The shampoo does not contain sulfates which at first I thought had something to do with it, but after thinking back neither did the Agadir Agran Oil Shampoo which only required a minimal amount of product. 

As for the conditioner, I allowed it to stay in my hair for some time (30 - 45 minutes) before lightly washing it out as was instructed. Since I wanted to experiment with more of a natural curly style I choose to use the Beautiful Kinks Styling Creme Gelee over the Get It Straight Styling Creme to see what it would do. I made sure the product covered my hair from root to tip then twisted into a style to let dry overnight. In the morning, I took out the two strand twist and you can find my results pictured below. 

I find it very hard to wear my hair in a natural curl style. I don't know if it's because I'm just not used to it or would like it to be longer before doing so, but it's very rare that you'll catch me with my hair like this. Because of that, next time I use The Gold System, I will be concluding with the Get It Straight Styling Creme to see how it manages my hair straighten instead of curly. In the end, I really love it did for my hair when it was curly. It looked and felt really healthy and soft. If you're hair is course and/or kinky and you're looking for products that specialize in that type of hair, I would suggest you check out The Gold System from Andre Walker Hair
