    48 Products With Before And After Photos That'll Make You Go, "Whew"

    I'm relieved just looking at these results.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An all-in-one spackle tool in case you're more like Tim The Toolman than anything else when it comes to home improvement. It's got a putty knife on one end, a sanding pad on the other, and primer enhanced spackle in between.

    This kit contains spackle, primer, a putty knife, and a sanding pad! And reviewers mention that if you add a lick of paint after using this, your walls will look as good as new.

    Promising review: "I slipped in the shower the other day and grabbed my towel bar outside of it so as not to die. Doing so, I ripped the bar off the wall, including the screws and anchors, so I had four small but kind of nasty holes in my wall. I've never done any sort of drywall repair/spackling etc. and I figured, for under $10 with all I could need, this would do the job. I applied the spackle, smoothed it with the flat end of the tube, and allowed it to dry. I was able to sand it smooth and then paint over the spackle. It looks fine now. I give it 5 stars for convenience." —John J. Connelly Jr.

    2. A fireplace cleaner kit since it's finally cold and now you'll actually light it. Erase odors and foot stains so they don't ruin your holiday photos.,

    And by kit I mean a brush and 16-ounce bottle of nontoxic fireplace cleaning formula.

    Promising Review: "Unbelievable! My daughter just moved into her first home. She thought she would have to paint her brick fireplace because of the heavy soot stains that had been there for years. We applied the product twice and put in a whole lot of elbow grease, but what a difference!! It’s a messy process, but well worth the time and energy." —MM

    3. A pet hair removal broom because your carpets used to be an entirely different color. Time to get back to your roots.

    There's a rake side and a squeegee side, which both effectively do the deed.

    Promising review: "This is a genius invention with a rubbery broom that catches everything! Today I didn't think the floor really needed to be swept, but the Furemover proved me wrong. I ended up with a big tumbleweed of dog hair and my hair and who knows what else? The handle telescopes far longer than I need (I'm 5'8") but the telescoping comes in handy when sweeping under the couch or other out-of-the-way places. This is a game-changer if you have a lot of fur or hair in your home. You must try this, I am so happy with this purchase!" —Frannie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44+ (available in various configurations).

    4. A mold and mildew stain remover spray so you can erase the questionable, yet unexplainable stains that have been on your rug since the first month you got it.

    Promising review: "There is absolutely no comparison to this product which is superior in every way. I could hardly believe my eyes! I thought, spray a little bit and just see how it does. So I sprayed 25% of the worst of the mold stained areas on the marble floor. The results were like magic! Before my eyes in less than 30 seconds nearly all of the stain had disappeared. The remainder took another one to two minutes." —Dennis Polley

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $26.99.

    5. A discreet flat outlet plug since you probably assumed they’re visually inescapable — wrong. Covering those cords really does make a world of difference.

    Promising review: "This was very easy to install to hide all the messy wires. This is life-changing to create a nice, sleek space." —Martha Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95+ (available in five different lengths/configurations).

    6. A gallon of white paint because there's nothing like starting with a clean canvas. White walls make the smallest rooms feel larger and they never go out of style.

    Promising review: "This paint works marvelously for staining interior brick! I researched for a long time and looked at many project reports for staining a raw brick fireplace. Finally, I committed to this chalk paint and my fireplace looks better than any I have seen elsewhere. I diluted it to a half paint, half water ratio, applied one coat with a brush, and worked it into holes and crevices with a sponge. Very easy to do, if surroundings are appropriately protected from the very thin splashy paint." —maina donaldson

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (also available in two-pack and 12 colors).

    7. A pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets for keeping the backbone of your kitchen at its best. If you have to run the dishwasher twice to get everything clean, it may be time to use one of these.

    Promising review: "I have had a film on my dishwasher for quite some time now, I am embarrassed to say. We did not realize that it was necessary to clean the dishwasher from time to time. The buildup had been accumulating for over four years now. I tried several other cleaners to get the buildup off, but failed. I bought this product and figured it was worth a try. We added the product into the dishwasher and ran a normal cycle without dishes. When we opened it back up, it looked like new. Highly recommend this product!" —Phillip and Katherine

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $5.99 (also available in a 12-pack).

    8. A weekly shower spray to work wonders, sans the bleach. You don't even have to scrub — the soap scum and shower grime buildup literally just oozes down the drain. Rinsing has never been so satisfying.

    Promising review: "We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. This is truly an overnight sensation!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89+ (available in three sizes).

    9. A mold and mildew remover that'll relieve you from the embarrassment of blackened tiles. All you gotta do is apply and let it sit overnight. Next thing you know, you've basically got brand-new tile.

    A reader's dirty tiles the night before / A reader's clean tiles the morning after

    Promising review: "The words won't do it justice. I had this little bottle for over a year before I finally used it. What a mistake! I should've used it immediately! We have a small leak in our shower, which leads to a lot of built-up mold and mildew. I had tried everything else — commercial cleaners, even — and nothing touched it. Then I came across the little bottle I had bought over a year earlier and had pushed to the back of the cabinet, and I thought, 'What have I got to lose?' IT CLEANED ALL THE BLACK GUNK OUT OF MY SHOWER! I can't say enough good about it. I will buy more and keep some on hand, at least until we can get this leak fixed. What a lifesaver." —REMayRicks

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    10. A fantastic makeup brush shampoo because there's no need to trash your old brushes just because they're dirty. A few minutes with this shampoo will make them cleaner than the day you brought them home.

    reviewer photo showing dirty sponges before and after using the cleansing shampoo, revealing them looking brand new

    They're also all-natural and cruelty-free! Reviewers also mention it pairs perfectly with a silicone brush cleaning mat ($4.99 on Amazon).

    Promising review: "I admit it. I'm terrible when it comes to taking care of my makeup and brushes. I don't care if it's past its prime; if it still works, I'm using it. And those badger brushes I paid a ton for? Pretty sure they were still holding onto powder and eyeshadow from six years ago. So in a rare moment of responsibility, I finally broke down and started looking for a brush cleaner. So how did it work? Well, I can happily say that this cleaner does a bang-up job! My brushes were saturated with old color, to the point that I thought I might need to spring for a new set. Aside from just looking bad, though, all that old color was probably affecting pigment and application any time I used them. A little of this cleaner, a handful of seconds working it in and rinsing, and my brushes look practically as good as the day I bought them! Saved me a ton of money in new brushes, and it didn't take away from my being-lazy time!" —J

    11. A wood polisher to restore your wood surfaces to their original glory and fool people into thinking your floors were just redone.

    Reviewer image of stained wood without use of polish and clean wood with use of polish

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this stuff! We have an older log cabin that was pretty neglected, both inside and out. Our wood floors were faded and worn. The outside logs looked dry and faded. I decided to give this a try before paying to have the floors sanded and refinished; and also outside before having the whole log home restained. This stuff is absolutely amazing. It soaks into the wood and really revitalizes it. In spots that the wood soaks it in quickly, a second or third treatment may be needed. I just squirted it on the floor and mopped it in with a mircofiber mop. Outside, I added it to a rag and simply wiped the logs. It's been a week now and this is not a temporary fix like you might see with Orange Glo or others that leave a greasy, temporary finish. What an awesome buy!!!" —Frank T.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    12. A pet ear cleaner because Fido might not be ignoring you if his ears are caked up with gunk. This will help maintain your pet's ear health by preventing infections and other costly ailments.

    Promising review: "I have a golden who has ear issues, so much that a few years ago he had to have surgery on his ear because of a hematoma. And of course all the trips to the vet for treatment over the years for yeast and infections have added up. Tried diet changes and other products. This ear cleaner is the best of all. And I noticed after a month of using it every three to four days that his ears are staying much cleaner. I usually don't write recommendations, but this is a good product for chronic ear problems." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    13. An effective outdoor cleaner to give your driveway, patio, or walkway a huge facelift. This works wonders on cement and stone for a reasonable price.

    Promising review: "I first used this product about two years ago on the awning on my RV. That awning was so bad, that I thought I was going to have to replace it. After using this Scott's product as directed, the mold and mildew completely disappeared. This product definitely works and it works GREAT! What more can I say — it saved me nearly $500." —R. Latreille

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98 (available in three sizes and three styles).

    14. A grout cleaning pen for transforming the tiny brown crevices between your tiles and making them white as snow again — for under $10 🥂.

    Reviewer photo showing before-and-after using the Grout Pen on their bathroom floor. The stains on the grout are visibly gone and entire tile flooring looks considerably cleaner and newer

    Promising review: "Best product! My house was built in the early 1960s and the bathroom grout was becoming discolored in spots. I had used every product on the market before buying this pen to see if I could brighten the grout with no luck. I could have just saved so much money if I had gone with the pen in the first place! It worked throughout the shower with more product to go! Easy to clean up and lasts a while!" —Kelli

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in two sizes).

    15. A set of K-Cup cleaning pods for making sure your Keurig is at its best when you need it. Run these through your machine a few times to extend its life — unless you'd rather buy a whole new one.,

    Promising review (for the pic on the left): "Ran it through three times. It truly works!" —Shawna20

    Promising review: "I am impressed. My Keurig was to the point that I had almost ordered a new one to replace it. I tried cleaning it but that didn't help. So, I saw these on Amazon and figured for such a nominal low price, I couldn't go wrong. I ordered the product, used as per instructions, and the pot is back to near-new status." —Henry D.

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $9.95.

    16. A naturally-scented, sulfate-free, laundry detergent that fizzes to dissolve stubborn stains while softening your fabric.

    Get them from The Fizz Whiz on Etsy for $12+ (available in two packaging options).

    17. A bottle of carpet miracle cleaner to restore your carpet to its glory days, you know, before it acquired that unsettling aroma. Why pay 💰💰💰 to get the thing professionally shampooed ONCE when you can get this long-lasting product for under $20?

    reviewer's before and afters of their dirty carpet looking clean after being shampooed

    Promising review: "Worth every penny. I’ve bought this product so many times now I have it on auto-ship! Saw the reviews and figured I’d give it a try. My cat likes to pee over the litter box and stain the brand-new carpet. I used this in my Bissell and it took all the stain and smell out!!! I’ll never use another cleaner." —Wendy

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $16.12).

    18. A leather conditioner because investments require upkeep. For less than $20, you can restore your favorite leather items rather than replace them.,

    Reviewers note that using this may darken the leather, so keep that in mind!

    Promising review: "Excellent product! So happy I tried it! I wore kitchen gloves and smoothed a thin layer of the product all over the couch, instead using of the cloth. Went way faster and I didn’t waste product soaked up by the cloth." —Kristie

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three sizes).

    19. A stainless-steel tongue scraper so you can knock 'em dead with your dazzling personality — not your morning breath. Removing bad bacteria from your mouth has never been so easy.

    Reviewer before and after showing the scraper removed a brown film that was on their tongue

    Promising review: "I never realized how much gunk was on my tongue in the mornings. Pretty disgusting actually. My mouth feels extra clean after using this. Great quality stainless steel. To sanitize it, I just dip it in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes. The only thing others may have an issue with is storage as it doesn't come with a case or anything. Simple solution, though. I put up a small hook next to my toothpaste and toothbrush and hang it on that." —Alexis T.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95+ (available in four options).

    20. A convenient dry shampoo *powder* to take the extra sheen out of your hair until you have time to fully wash it. You have far too many things to do and your hair, unfortunately, can't always be a priority.

    Promising review: "This makes my bangs and roots look fresh again. And I love that this is a powder and not a aerosol spray. That also means that this lasts MUCH longer. I use it every other day when I don't wash my hair since I have very oily roots. I've been using it for almost a month and barely any is missing out of the bottle. A little goes a long way." —Rachel G.

    21. Or an edge control pomade so you can do acrobatics with your baby hairs.

    Buzzfeed / Christine Forbes

    I have 4c hair with 4b moments and I'm really enjoying this product. Granted, my baby hairs are very fine. First I apply it generously with my fingertips so that every strand is saturated. Then, I style it with a toothbrush or edge comb. If I want a stronger hold, I'll wear a scarf for about 15 minutes. This is really great for stretching out my old braids because my edges are always the first part to get fuzzy.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    BUT we want to add that no one should feel pressure to lay their edges, unless they want to! Check out "Just A Friendly PSA That You Don't HAVE To Lay Your Edges Down If You Don't Wanna."

    22. A nail polish organizer for storing your polishes in a way that lets you see your entire collection at a glance. And when you're not painting your nails, just slide this under your bed so it doesn't clutter your shelves.

    This holds 48 bottles and is double-sided.

    Promising review: "This is better than advertised. All my bottles fit perfectly in the standard size boxes. My Julep colors fit two in a compartment! The first row has adjustable dividers, you can use them to keep odd-shaped bottles or do what I do: use one side for my nail stamper, dotting tools, and the drying drops and the other for foam wedges and nail pens. It looks way neater easily tucked under my vanity instead of the baskets and baskets of polishes I had to hunt through!" —Clouds

    Get it from Amazon for $27.89 (available in two colors).

    Get it from Amazon for $3.87.

    24. A fabric shaver to make your very used sweater look like you just brought it home from the store.

    a before and after of a sweater

    Promising review: "This thing is excellent. I just 'repaired' two cashmere sweaters and one modal-blend jersey top to like-new condition. The waste compartment fills up quickly and will start clogging the blades if not emptied frequently. I will share one trick I found for emptying the area around the blades. Remove the waste compartment, and hold the unit vertically over a garbage can while turning the defuzzer on. Blades will spin, and the rest of the pills will fall out. Enjoy." —Fine Print Reader

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in six colors and a rechargeable version).

    25. A miracle-working toilet bowl ring remover since the only rings we're prepared to accept are jewelry. Believe it or not, this stone really does make a world of difference.

    Promising review: "When we bought our previously owned condo, all three of the toilets had a permanent dark ring. I must have tried at least six different cleaning products that claimed to eliminate rings. None worked. I was actually considering buying new toilets as the ring was embarrassing to me. A friend recommended the pumice toilet bowl ring remover and I was prepared to be disappointed again. But it worked perfectly. The ring is gone on all three toilets and it only took a few minutes per toilet. I don't know when I have ever been so totally satisfied with a product. It just saved me a whole lot of money and I am no longer embarrassed by the appearance of my toilets." —lynn mcdonald

    Get it from Amazon for $11.40 (available in three sizes).

    26. A genius microfiber brush set to really get in the nooks and crannies of your blinds, vents, and other annoyingly tight areas. Time to kick those dust bunnies to the curb!

    Pro tip: The microfiber sleeves can be tossed in the washing machine and they'll be as good as new in no time.

    Promising review: "Where has this blind cleaner been for the past 50 years? I have struggled to keep my blinds clean for so many years, and happily found this item. It WORKS! And I love that it comes with extra sleeves, and the sleeves are machine washable. The handle is plastic, but I feel confident it won't break any time soon." —marionvgt

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in two colors).

    27. A natural all-purpose cleaning paste that'll clean everything from your oven to your produce (yes, it's that safe). Even though it's clearly strong enough to clean out reviewer's cabinets, the paste is safe enough to use on your hands.

    Danielle Healy/BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping writer Danielle Healy had major success with this stuff! She writes: "I recently moved into a new apartment, so lately I've been cleaning A LOT. Shortly after moving in, my partner and I went to store something on the top of the kitchen cabinets only to find them caked in a thick layer of grime. 🤢 After going at it with regular multipurpose cleaner (with little success) we broke out the scour paste as a last-ditch effort and OH BOY did this miracle product deliver (pics above). If it can handle that grossness, it's going to have no problem with day-to-day messes like soap scum and burnt-on food. Plus, it smells delightful and comes in minimal, low-waste packaging!"

    Promising review: "I have sensitive skin and this has helped tremendously! I’m a woman who unfortunately started shaving my chin 20 years ago to get rid of peach fuzz. I’ve had stubble ever since and have to shave every day. I get rashes on my chin due to shaving. My skin is now less sensitive and my rash is almost gone!" —Angela

    The stick is a twist-to-dispense pen that'll deliver a cleansing solution through the center of the bristles. The formula consists of micro-fine cleansers and polishing agents combined with a polymer to make and keep your gems shiny and new.

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10 stars I would!!! I'm a little of a fanatic when it comes to keeping my jewelry clean, especially my wedding set. I tried this product on my diamonds, Swarovski crystals, and Brighton jewelry and the results are nothing less than amazing!!! This restored one of my Swarovski rings that I have not worn in years due to the cloudy color to a sparkling brilliance just like the first day I bought it!! I cannot recommend this product enough!!! I just ordered additional wands so I don't run out!!! Home run, Amazon!" —Kristina B.

    To use, simply wet your toothbrush slightly, remove the excess water, dip the brush into the charcoal powder, dab off any excess, and then brush your teeth for one to two minutes. Then, rinse your mouth to remove. One word of caution: make sure you're not using this too often as it can corrode your teeth's enamel.

    Promising review: "I rarely write reviews, but this stuff is amazing! It is strange to use at first but it works. The 'natural' doesn’t have any flavor at all. I’ve used it about two weeks now and have noticed a big difference. Unlike other whiteners, it doesn’t cause any sensitivity." —Anonymous

    A before and after of a cable looking much better after placing the product on it

    Promising review: "I hate to recall how many new iPhone chargers and MacBook power bricks I've had to buy over the years as the originals gradually frayed at the connector ends until they stopped working altogether. These inexpensive little coils wind right around the connector base and first half inch or so of the cord to keep it from bending and ultimately breaking at the join. Genius." —ElleNWC

    32. A hanger stacker so your closet will look ten times less cluttered. Everyone who has a minuscule, cramped closet knows the struggle.

    33. A dozen Bottle Bright tablets for salvaging your bottles from that dull, amber shade. Use this to restore them to their original glory in less than 24 hours!

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    34. A durable honeycomb drawer organizer because let's face it, your underwear drawer could look so much better. With this, you'll be able to locate your favorite pair without pulling everything out.

    35. Some velvet slipcovers to upgrade your couch in minutes rather than wait months for a brand new couch. It even comes with straps so they won't slide around every time you get up.

    Reviewer before/after of their couch with the pink velvet slip added. The after pic shows couches that look brand new and completely different.

    Promising review: "I have never been so excited about a slipcover. Total transformation of our couch and love seat. I was worried about it not working on our leather couch, but it stays on really well due to the straps and the separate cushion covers. LOVE." —Brian/Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $42.49+ (available in two sizes and 10 colors).

    36. A stackable cutlery organizer so you can keep your knives and forks organized while still having space in the drawer for other things.

    Reviewer photo of cutlery neatly organized and less cluttered than in before pic

    One tray fits up to 24 pieces of cutlery.

    Promising review: "THE BEST silverware storage organizer compartments I’ve EVER had in my entire life! We have a large family and therefore have the need for a lot of silverware. Unfortunately we have a small, shallow, and narrow drawer in our house but it was always full! Constantly disorganized before, and now amazingly organized. The only reason I would hesitate would be if your drawer is not adequately deep, but from reading reviews people said if they had 3.5 inches of depth it would be just fine which is exactly what I have and there’s adequate drawer depth for me. I measured my skinny drawer and realized I still had space for two units and took the plunge and am so glad I did! Silverware goes quickly from the dishwasher straight into the drawer and you don’t have to stack perfectly to put a lot in!!! ADD IT TO YOUR CART NOW, you’ll be glad you did if you have the same problem as we did!" —oceantiff

    Get it from Amazon for $11.24.

    37. A cooktop cleaning kit because, yes, you *can* undo that time when your pot boiled over. With this, that burned-on grease won't be as permanent as you think.

    A scratched-looking, grime-covered stove top with buildup before using the product, then a completely clear and reflective stove top after using the product

    The kit includes a 10-ounce bottle of Cerama Bryte cooktop cleaner, one cleaning pad, and one scraper — and it works on glass, ceramic, induction, radiant, and halogen cooktop ranges.

    Promising Review: "Works amazing! I hadn't thoroughly scrubbed my glass cooktop in years, only wiped down with random multi-cleaners, which never seemed to do much. Then a friend recommended this product...AMAZING! The included scrubbers and scrapers really make the difference. As others have said it will leave your cooktop shiny and new. Even marks that had been on there for years came almost completely off...98% better. The key is to use very little product. Let dry to a haze and wipe with a clean, dry cotton towel. (Just like waxing a car). If you aren't getting a mirrored finish it's because you've used too much product and not enough elbow grease to polish off." —B. Swartwood

    Get them from Amazon for $11.47.

    38. A red wine stain remover that proves there's no use in crying over spilled Merlot (that's a phrase, right?). Just spritz, wipe, and pour yourself a new glass.

    Promising review: "It did pass my first test! I did not expect to use this product a couple of days after I received it. Had a spill of red over one of my favorite shirts. I did try to remove the most dramatic area with water and soap right away; then I let this product sink in for half hour before washing and voilà it was all gone!" —Gerson Melgar

    39. A bug bite suction tool to help you skip the whole itchy, swelling ordeal that comes after being accosted by a bug. It's 100% worth the hype, and it was invented by a mom.,

    Promising reviews: "Lifesaver! I got this just in time for a family camping trip, as my child and I are both highly allergic to mosquitoes and the bites swell up very badly. We both used this on our bites and I am shocked at the results! The bites did not swell up like they normally do, and the itching was reduced to a minimum. I am absolutely sold and would recommend this product to anyone with bug bite issues!" —dzmom

    "Seriously! Buy this. Buy multiple, keep one in the car, in the camper, in the bathroom, everywhere! This sucker (pun intended) WORKS! Like his mama, my son has sensitive skin and is extremely reactive to bug bites. He was stung by multiple wasps on the playground and I had this in my car, luckily. We got all the stingers out, no pain, no tears, and the best part, NO WELTS! Normally his skin would swell up and these horrible purple welts would be at each and every spot where he was bitten/stung, so painful for him. But, after using this right away, we had to really look hard for the spots were he got stung the next morning. I've since used it on fire ant bites on our feet (iykyk) and it worked like a charm. No itch or weird whitehead from the bite, a lifesaver for sure! DO NOT hesitate to buy this, it's worth it and then some!" —Rebecca

    Promising review: "I’ve just downsized from a large home in the suburbs to condo living in downtown. Purging and getting rid of so much stuff that I’ve accumulated throughout the years was life-changing! I had quite a bit of really nice bedding that I wanted to keep, but had very little storage space. I decided to order these jumbo bags for King down duvets, thick blankets and king sized pillows. I was amazed at how much these held, how easy they were to pack/vacuum and how much I could fit in such a small space!" —Raquel Moss

I used this shampoo for the first time yesterday, and my hair and my scalp feels amazing. There are very small sections of my hair that are heat damaged permanently. I'll just have to cut those strands off but, this shampoo saved the rest of my hair. I will post some pics later. I hope with continued usage that my regular curl pattern will fully return to normal.
