So thankful for this product line. Now that I’m growing my hair (been rocking the short look since I was 12) I needed something that would keep it manageable. I feel how soft and moisturized my hair is. Thank you.


I agree with other comments these are great products. Products that create excitement. They are best that I’ve tried for my hair.

I didn’t plan on purchasing the wide tooth comb but I think I’ll have too!!! I’d love to try this look!


Pattern is the best product ever. And I have tried them all. Every name brand and off brand. Pattern keeps my hair hydrated and well managed. Thank you, Ms. Tracee Ellis Ross. You did that!!!!
