Big Hair Leave In Moisturising Milk and Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment Review

To all my “all-natural” hair care lovers……this review is for you!

I’m not a big user of all-natural products…..however, I have noticed that as my hair gets longer (and the damaged ends are getting trimmed away into extinction), my hair seems to respond better to these kind of products rather than the usual silicone laden ones.

I was sent these products by Big Hair as a gift and I was so impressed with these beauties that I decided that I just HAD to share my honest opinion with my doves too 🙂

Now…..to break down why these products are as awesome as bananas smothered in peanut butter (hmmmmm), here are the ingredients…..

Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner Review

This leave in conditioner is like an ex boyfriend that I just keep going back to…..

It was the very first leave in conditioner that I ever tried when I embarked upon my natural hair journey over four years ago now…..and it’s one of the few products I that just find myself being drawn back to time and time again.

I mentioned in my previous article that this leave in conditioner seems to work well for me during both the spring and autumn/fall months due to the properties in the ingredients. Sometimes it is literally the only product that just ticks all the boxes (hence why it’s pretty much empty in the above picture)……

Mizani Coconut Soufflé Light Moisturizing Hairdress Review

Soooo…..maybe I should start off with the few positives there are about this product……

It smells good! Fresh and coconutty.

It’s nice and thick, easily spreadable, will last a while. I found that this product worked best for me when it came to twist outs and braid outs (which I very rarely do), it would provide enough hold to help the styles last for days afterwards.

However…..

Joico Moisture Recovery Conditioner Review

I’ve only used this bad boy a few times so far……but it’s fair to say, that when used appropriately, it is an absolutely AMAZING deep conditioner.

Now, this conditioner is DEFINITELY not for the “all-natural” lover! If you are someone who is highly ingredients conscious, then this product is most definitely NOT for you! Due to the heavy silicones in this product, I use it for one occasion only…..

Seasonal Curls! Looking After Curly Hair In The Winter and Summer Months!

After four years of being natural, I think I’m finally starting to crack the riddle….

Why does my hair love a product one month and detest it the next? How can a product nourish my curls one day but break them the day after….

When I first stumbled into the natural hair and beauty world….I felt like a goldfish thrown out of the bowl and into the Pacific Ocean!

There were so many rules and guidelines in curly girl world that were just far too overwhelming to process all at once. Every aspect of my hair care routine had to change…..from shampooing to conditioning to styling to brushing…..too much!

Why are Naturals So Addicted to Bleach and Hair Vitamins? Is Disney to Blame?

I can’t blame anyone for being tempted by the bleach!

It’s all over Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest and YouTube….beautiful natural haired ladies flaunting their curls in different shades of gold. “Perfect hair” is beginning to become redefined….no longer straight, limp and boring (yet slightly glossy). Today hair porn involves big, vibrant and bouncy curls. Most popularly in honey, caramel and ashy tones.

As I stated in my opening paragraph….I can’t blame anyone for wanting this! It’s super pretty! Mesmerising in fact…..
