I’m often asked what products I use on my kinky-curly mane. It took awhile to sink in, but I finally put 1 + 1 together. This will be one of many hair product reviews, people. My hair is thick and coily, so I’ll be writing from a natural ethnic hair perspective, but you can omit some of my techniques to fit your own hair’s perspective. Get ready for product reviews, tips, methods and any other actual-factuals that I deem fit to share.
Yes. That’s an actual empty bottle. Behold the testament of a good review. I used up the whole bottle. Here is a rundown of my encounter with Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Anti-Breakage Spray.
The Huffington Post calls it coconut oil’s sexier cousin. It derives from a tahitian gardenia. It’s been a go-to hydrating and repairing hair treatment for Polynesian women for years.
2. SHAKE IT UP BABY!
Follow the directions on the label. You need to shake it up because the ingredients naturally separate. You need them to combine for best results.
3. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY
I like to use leave-in conditioner sprays as re-wetting agents to refresh my curls, so I can restyle my hair between washes and co-washes. I reccomend that you use this product sparingly. It is deliciously rich and it seems extravagant to waste good product for this purpose. Try using a more water-based product. This one is loaded with monoi oil
4. LET YOUR SOUL GLO
Bask in a mist of this stuff after towel drying or plomping method. Spray it on and shake your head slowly from side to side like you’re in an old school commercial. Now you’re free to add all your heavier styling products
5. DIVERSE THUMBS UP
I talked to ladies with a range of hair textures who agreed that it left their hair very soft. I agree.
