MAYA Confident Curling Cream Review #BecomeMaya

#BecomeMaya

I was sent this product a little while ago now and I’m very happy to be finally reviewing it for you now!

This is the first British brand targeting “mixed race hair” and if you ask me….it will be one of the first of many! (not to say that it’s not for all other types of hair and races!)

The sleek packaging and luscious conditioning cream has all the makings of a trailblazer and I was very excited to see whether the Confident Curling Cream lived up to it’s promises!

So first off, lets look at the ingredients:

Motions Natural Textures Review – Detangling Pre-Wash Butter & Texture Defining Cream

Now….I really have been sitting on these products for too long!

However, I feel as though the time I’ve taken using these products will really help to give you all an accurate idea of how they worked for me and my loopy corkscrew curls.

Over the years, Motions has undergone a total branding overhaul and has really gotten to know us naturals and our specific needs in a post-relaxer world.

They know what we ultimately want in our curly regimes…..and they also seem to know our naughty rebellious curly girl tendencies! (I do not know a single natural who threw her GHD’s in the bin after transitioning……*sips tea*)

So I was very intrigued and happy to be trying out two of their products from their Natural Textures line. The Pre-wash Detangling Butter and Enhance & Define Versatile Texture Defining Cream….

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.

Contrary to the name……Mixed Chicks is actually aimed at women (and men) of all racial backgrounds with a variety of hair textures and curl types.

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…..

Vatika Naturals Egg Protein Rejuvenating Shampoo & Deep Conditioning Hair Mask Review

This weeks review is of the Vatika Naturals Egg Protein with Honey Shampoo and Conditioner duo.

I’ve had these little beauties sitting in my bathroom for months now and I can’t believe I haven’t taken the time to review them!

All the way from the United Arab Emirates, this duo is a MUST HAVE for anyone with damaged/chemically treated hair (this includes bleach, hair dye, etc).

GoldCrush Hair Vitamins – Week Two Update

Hello my Doves!

If you are subbed to me on YouTube, you’ll probably see that I have started the GoldCrush Hair vitamins trial. I have been supplied with two months worth of capsules and I’m looking forward to seeing if I have any noticeable results during that time period!

I started taking them on the 24th January (Saturday) and I am now two weeks into my trial. So far, I haven’t noticed any side effects of the vitamins at all. I did get a few more spots within the first week of use, however this coincided with my period, so I think its more likely that it was just hormonal spots as I get them every month lasting for a few days.

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….

Coconut Oil: The Ultimate Beauty Secret – AfroFit Coconut Oil Review

Now, this blog post is long overdue! I finished the jar about 3 months ago!

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!

Lush Cosmetics For Natural Hair…..”Roots”, “Zest”, “Jungle” and “R&B” Review

Hello my doves,

Here is my review for Lush Cosmetics hair care line and products specifically targeted towards curly and natural hair.

There were some absolute gems here which I couldn’t recommend highly enough, and there were others that kind of fell short in regards to providing adequate care for textured hair types.

Lush Cosmetics is an international beauty brand which sells skin care, makeup and hair care. Lush Cosmetics are 100% vegetarian and they are also against animal testing. Lush Cosmetics also participate in ethical trading and their products are also fresh and handmade.
