What’s new on the curly scene? Melanin Hair Care, That’s what!
Every since Whitney (@naptural85) announced the launch of Melanin Hair Care Products I’ve been ecstatic. We all know Whitney as the guru of simple and affordable DIY hair care so to have her very own recipes in a bottle for purchase has given all of us so much life.
The products in this line include the Twist Elongating Style Cream and the Multi-Use Pure Oil Blend. Both products are free of Sulfates, Parabens, Mineral Oil, Formaldehydes and Phthalates.
The 16 fl oz Twist Elongating Style Cream retails for $16.99 and is designed to make your hair more manageable by reducing tangles and knots. This lightweight formula is enriched with Shea Butter and nutrient-rich oils that do not weight your hair down. The directions recommend massaging the cream into wet or dry hair one section at a time and style as desired.
I decided to use this product on a 2-strand Twist-out. After washing my hair and rinsing my conditioner out I stretched my hair, massaged the style cream one section at a time and applied a 2-strand twist. Immediately I knew my hair would love this product because it reminded me so much of pure shea butter. It smells EXACTLY like shea butter. This product literally melted into my hair as I applied it to each section. This style cream is water based so I worked fast to apply it as to not revert my hair back into its curly state. After I applied all of my twists I let me hair air dry.
The 8 fl oz Multi-Use Pure Oil Blend retails for $17.99 and is designed to soften, nourish and seal you hair. its a non-greasy, lightweight formula enriched with penetrating oils that work to rebuild your hair as well as lock in moisture and hydration. This oil contains vitamin E, jojoba oil, sage oil, organ oil and sweet almond oil. It can be used as a sealant, a hot oil treatment or even a body moisturizer.
After my twists were dry I massaged the oil into my scalp. Before unraveling my twist I applied the oil again onto my fingers to prevent any frizzing. Im pretty sure I used way too much oil as I was left with a greasy residue. Remember a little goes a long way. This oil has a faint peppermint smell but does not tingle the scalp. It definitely prevented frizz and left my hair very moisturized and shiny.
My hair was left very defined, moisturized and shiny. I love the products and will definitely use them again.
