I have heard about Not Your Mother's brand from quite some time but never actually explored their products. When I received Not Your Mother's Déjà Vu 'Do Style Extender in my Influenster VoxBox, I knew this would be the first product I would try. The moment I opened the tube and smelled it, I realized it has a delicious scent. So without any delay, let's get straight to the review.

About Not Your Mother's Déjà Vu 'Do Style Extender:

Do you believe in magic? Well, even if you don't, you'll believe in Déjà Vu ‘Do. This unique, lightweight cream will ward off any bad hair spirits and cast a clean hair spell (for days!) until your next wash. It will block humidity and repel dirt and oil all while adding body and flexible hold. Made with conditioners for long lasting frizz control and improved shine, and infused with a delicious scent of red apples and berries, this style extending hair primer will keep your ‘do as fresh as it was moments after you styled it.

My Experience With Not Your Mother's Déjà Vu 'Do Style Extender:

Be it bath and body products or hair care products, I love the ones with a delicious scent. Not Your Mother's Déjà Vu 'Do Style Extender is infused with red apples and berries, which increased my expectations from this product. It comes in a white tube with pink and black writings explaining the name and features of it. The packaging is intact and perfect to carry in a handbag. I received this product in the Influenster VoxBox and hence I got a sample travel size product. I think travel size products are the best way to try something new. In case you don't like the product, it won't hurt much to throw it away.

Coming to the style extender, it has a strong aroma which is a mix of red apples and berries as mentioned. The aroma does bother the nose if you are not a lover of strong scents. I personally felt it was fine, but not everyone might feel that way. The product is white in color with a liquid gel-like consistency. It is ideal to spread across the hair strands. A little amount goes well for my medium length hair and I am sure this tube is going to last for at least 20 times of usage.

On application, it does spread easily. It reduces the frizz and sets the hair properly. I observed that some parts of the hair feel slightly heavy, but that is only when you touch it. It doesn't feel bulky on the hair otherwise and gets into the hair evenly. Having said that, its claim of making the hair shiny didn't happen in my case. It is just any normal hair style product which does its job of setting the hair and saving you from the frizz. It keeps the hair oil-free for 3 days and the dirt is also reduced. I loved the fact that it added volume to my hair making it look thick. The results are best observed when you blow dry your hair instead of leaving it to dry on its own. I would say this product is worth a try at least once. Though not a wonder product, it is still a good one!

Pros Of Not Your Mother's Déjà Vu 'Do Style Extender:
  • The packaging is tube form, intact and travel-friendly.
  • If you love strong scents, you will enjoy red apples and berries fragrance.
  • It spreads easily when applied.
  • Gives good volume and a thick look to the hair.
  • Sets the hair well reducing the frizz.

Cons Of Not Your Mother's Déjà Vu 'Do Style Extender:
  • Doesn't make the hair shiny as it claims.
  • The smell can be overpowering if you don't like strong scents.
  • Few strands of hair felt heavy when touched.

Final Note:

This is a decent hair styler to try but not a wonder product to expect miracles. It gives volume to your hair making it frizz-free, oil-free and dirt-free. In spite of the few cons this product has, you can try it once. You never know if it works perfectly for your hair type!

  1. I was waiting for this review. Does it make hair weighed down?

    1. Well not completely but when you touch you feel a few strands are heavy not otherwise.
