I am new to the Natural Hair Movement, so I like to think I am unbiased and not so jaded by all the mother nature products floating about. I tried this after my cousin (who is very faddy, might I add) raved about using this brand on her thick, hard to manage natural hair. I have really enjoyed discovering my natural hair texture these past few months, and I’ve noticed my hair forms cute little spirals that I’d quite like to preserve! So I opted for the curl and style milk, and you know, waited for the magic to happen. It didn’t.
Honestly, I’m giving it one star because it smells nice and another star because I like the packaging. The ingredients are all natural and hair friendly so it shouldn’t cause any irritation. There was also no product build up which is commendable.
It claims to “De-tangle, condition and control curls, while restoring body and shine.” I am yet to see any evidence of this! It is too greasy, if I wanted grease I’d oil my hair up. I get quite apprehensive when de-tangling due to this, as I am very wary of breakage. I cant say it helps with styling because its so greasy I cant do anything with my hair once its on there. My hair is quite soft anyway so I can’t say it conditioned it noticeably either. It certainly gave it a shine, which I wasn’t too pleased about and as for ‘body’, I didn’t think afro hair needed body!
I tend to buy natural hair products from the US on Walgreens, because my aunt has an American card and billing address and hardly anything is available in the UK. It retailed at $9.99, which would be a great price if it actually did something for my hair. Who knows, maybe my hair is too short or too light for me to benefit from this product but I was underwhelmed.
Have you tried this? What did you think?
