There haven’t always been many companies that make haircare products specifically for us naturally kinky/curly girls. Things are definitely changing in that area with more and more natural hair products *finally* hitting shelves. With that said, when I was introduced to Mielle Organics during the Ubiquitous Beauty, Hair, Health Expo, I was left trying to figure out how I missed them hittin’ the scene. I clearly haven’t been living.
Anywho, on day 2 of the Expo I had the opportunity to get my hair *did* by the awesomely talented Chris Curse using the Mielle Organics haircare line. Check it out:
First, my hair was washed with the Babassu Oil Conditioning Sulfate-Free Shampoo followed by the Babassu Oil & Mint Deep Conditioner. Both products smelled really nice and the conditioner made my scalp feel all tingly and such.
Thanks to my bleached/damaged ends my hair was a little dry and crispy, so Chris applied some of the Organic White Peony Ultra Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner (concentrating on the ends) before blowing out my hair. This stuff smells soooo good y’all.
The humidity just wouldn’t let me be great so this style lasted all of two days. This is why I never straighten my hair in the summer. To get my kinky back, I used all the same stuff I mentioned above and my hair was still super soft. I’ve used the mint almond oil pretty much every day since the Expo and the leave-in has been awesome to replenish moisture on the days when I re-twist. I haven’t used the co-wash or vitamins yet but based on everything else, I’m sure they’re awesome.
What say you? Have you tried Mielle Organics? What did you think?
