Cake Restorative Scalp Tonic

[READ TIME: 3 MIN]

What They Have to Say

Treat your hair and scalp to Cake, a restorative serum that smoothes, soothes, protects, and promotes regeneration. This leave-in treatment is powered by active ingredients such as apple stem cells proven to delay the aging of hair follicles and hydrolyzed protein from the sweet white lupine plant which has a restructuring and regenerative effect on follicles. A blend of eight essential oils, including frankincense, sandalwood, and ylang-ylang, complete this intensely hydrating formula. CAKE works wonders on dry, itchy scalps.  

REVERIE

Cake Restorative Scalp Tonic Review

The Cake Restorative Scalp Tonic was so-so. Reverie’s products all have a more masculine scent and are all light products. This scalp tonic is no different.

It didn’t seem to do much for me. So to get a better idea of how it works for more troubled scalps, I started using it on Jarrad (my fiancé). For a bit of background, Jarrad has a very dry scalp, straight hair, and suffers from chronic dandruff.

It hydrated his scalp, but only for so long. I also had to use a lot of product to thoroughly cover and hydrate his scalp. After starting to use it on his scalp regularly, I went through the bottle pretty quickly. You will have to use it daily. Granted, it will not leave your hair greasy (even with daily use), even if you have fine hair. So the verdict is; it feels nice but doesn’t have a lasting effect.

About the Herbal Conditioner for Thick to Curly Hair

Well, let’s just start with I love the idea behind this conditioner! There are a lot of fantastic and beneficial herbs in this conditioner that have been used in Ayurveda for centuries.

The Herbal Conditioner also smells delectable! It is scented with lemon, bergamot, and rosemary essential oils. Not to mention rosemary is great for encouraging hair growth! The texture is relatively thick like yogurt. You can see the bits of herbs used, but it isn’t gritty at all thankfully.

Sadly, this isn’t nourishing at all for curly hair. Innate Life most likely formulated this for fine, wavy hair rather than coarse ringlets, coily, or kinky hair types. If you fall into any of the three types (or a combo of), this will leave your hair matted and tangled.

The first time I tried this on its own, I applied it generously throughout my hair and started attempting to detangle it as I normally do. I didn’t even make it through a strand of hair before I caught a knot and realized that if I tried to detangle my hair without adding in another conditioner, I was going to be bald before I turned off the shower.

Needless to say, this one was a major fail. This is a conditioner for all of you beauties with lustrous thick very straight hair. Everyone else, approach with caution. The herbs in this may be beneficial when mixed with a thicker conditioner for that much-needed moisturization.

I still use this regularly mixed with the Shea Moisture Damage Rehab Conditioner as I love the smell and the herbs really make my scalp feel fantastic.
