Product Review: Optimum Alma Legend


Last week, I got the chance to review the Alma Legend Optimum Salon Hair Care Line. Honestly, I wasn’t a big of a fan of it. The products are just OK. They have extra heavy scents, unpronounceable ingredients and my hair felt so,so.

The line’s claim to fame is that it has Indian Amla oil in each product, but if you look at the ingredients on the back the Amla oil is the last or second to last ingredient,  which means there are like 2 drops of Amla oil in the entire bottle (see Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract)

Amla Legend


Hmm, ok.

I ended up doing a blowout using these products. For some reason, my ipad didn’t want to take a screen shot, but you can see my hair in my newest video later this week.

Here is a breakdown of all of the products in the line.

Body Filler Hair Wash

It had an extra heavy perfume smell. Way too much going on. It worked ok.

Body Filler Hair Cream Conditioner

Same here, it smelled like I was using my grandma’s perfume on my head. The conditioner was pretty regular. Not good, not bad.

Billion Hair Potion

I have no clue what this is supposed to do. It’s kind of like an oil, but it has this odd dropper applicator which I guess is supposed to prevent you from using a lot? I’m not sure? It was just odd. I mean, why not just make an Indian oil?

Damage Antidote – Oil Moisturizer

This was a cream moisturizer. It worked fine, nothing special.

1001 Oils Cream Night Wrap

This was a pretty weird product too. It’s basically a heavier version of the Damage Antidote Oil Moisturizer. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I used it on my hair at night. My hair looked and felt the same in the morning.

No Mix, No Lye Relaxer

Needless to say, I didn’t touch this. I’m not anti-perm but I am anti box perm. Those things are terrible. If you perm your hair, go to a knowledgeable professional. Period.

Soft Sheen Carson took something great like Indian Amla and commercialized it, which I don’t necessarily find fault with; go make that paper. BUT its deceiving to consumers who don’t know their stuff #IJS.

Clearly, I made my opinion about the products known. They aren’t bad, it’s just not anything that I would buy or recommended to anyone.  Sorry, Soft Sheen Carson, try again.
