Project Focus 10 Collab – Week 8 Review & Update

Hello, hello!

Can you believe that it is week 8 of the Project Focus 10 Collab with my lovely fellow bloggers: Ingrid from Curly Spring Blossom, Stashy from Stash Matters, and Joy from Styled with Joy.

What is Project Focus 10?

10 different products that have been forgotten or neglected, or that we just want to use up, that have not been reviewed on our blogs before (but are still on the market). Over the course of 10 weeks  we will make an effort to try to use them, and review one of the products weekly (every Monday), and update on our progress on each of the 10 products over the 10 week period.

This week I’m reviewing the Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Long and Strong Conditioner.  Here’s what the website says:

Remember the princess in the tower with the long, golden locks? Well, now you can let down your own hair because of Way to Grow. Made with essential vitamins, herbs and and bioactive extracts, this salon formula will strengthen, moisturize and give your hair a silky texture by the time prince charming comes for you!

My experience: I finished using up both the shampoo and conditioner this week!

On the conditioner bottle it says: “Intense Moisturizing for All Hair Types

My hair is in pretty good condition considering that I haven’t had a trim since December, but the ends are starting to get a little dry. I wouldn’t say that the conditioner provides my hair with “intense moisturizing” as I’ve had to use a hair treatment mask to give my ends some super conditioning occasionally. I tend to use a heavier conditioner about once every two weeks or so, more often if my hair seems a little dry. But for a daily, or every other day, type conditioning, it is fine. It is probably more intensely moisturizing if you have finer hair.

Would I buy it again? I’ll give it another try in the summer time and see how it performs on my hair in humid weather.

Update on the remaining nine products:

Makeup Tools:

Georgie Beauty False Lashes and Adhesive – I had intended to try out my false lashes on the weekend, but my right eye is really irritated / scratchy feeling so I didn’t want to risk making it worse. I haven’t tried any new eye products, so I know that it isn’t allergy / sensitivity related. Maybe a minor scratch from dust – it was really windy and dusty on Friday and my eye started bothering me on Friday night / Saturday morning. Hopefully it will feel better soon. I didn’t wear any eye products yesterday and I won’t again today just in case.

Wayne Goss Brush 01 – reviewed week 2, used daily, LOVE IT!

  1. I’m really curious about this brand! I’ll have to look on Amazon for it. Don’t know why but the “Not Your Mother’s” name really appeals to me, lol. 😛
    Sorry to hear your eye is bothering you. I think allergy season might be starting because I’m noticing that my throat is scratchy. Hope it settles down (so you can wear those falsies!)
    So awesome you finished one of the PF10 items! 😀
    Ooops once again I forgot to update my other PF10 items.

    1. I think I’ll try one of the other shampoo / conditioner combos. And I definitely want to try the beachy waves spray that Joy was using.
      I don’t think that it is allergies, because it feels like just one spot in my eye, and when my allergies start both eyes get super itchy, and watery.
      So far I’ve finished three products, and binned two. I think I might be able to finish the Burt’s Bees stuff soon too!


  2. I love this shampoo/conditioner. I’ve gone through several bottles. Just finished off 2 more this morning (got new backups over the weekend as Ulta had them but one, get one 50% off).
