Happy Holidays everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and for those of you all who celebrate Kwanzaa, habari gani?
I, for one enjoyed my holiday with my little one despite him being sick. We opened presents and then spent most of the day/evening in the bed watching movies and interacting with family.
I have since removed my faux locs and dedicated Christmas Eve to a WASH DAY and boy did my hair need it. Since faux locs are a 2 for 1 protective style, my poor kinks needed it. They were filled with product residue and I couldn’t wait to use the numerous amount of products I had since acquired. Just to keep things organized, I’d figured I use pretty much most of the products from one line and do a review on them.
First up, Hairitage Hydration.
I had purchased a few products from HH’s pre-BF sale and decided to finally use them after reading several ladies review on hair forums. I’m still on my quest for the perfect deep conditioner so I picked up her Deep C along with a few other conditoners and sealants. Shall we begin?
The Deep C:
Ingredients: Water, Palm Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Aloe Vera Gel, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Aloe Oil, Irish Moss, Marshmallow Root, Blue Green Algae, Silk, Fragrance, BTMS-50, Cetyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol
Directions:Apply generously to clean hair and finger comb through. Leave on hair for at least 5 minutes. For extra conditioning, leave on hair for at least 15 minutes with a plastic cap. Rinse thoroughly with water.
Price: 15.00 for 4oz.
Yeah so I didn’t follow the directions at all. I initally applied some JBCO to my hair and then on top of that I added this product to DIRTY HAIR. I let this sit on my hair overnight as a pre-poo treatment. Not to fond of the smell or lack there of. I was able to detangle my dirty tresses and then placed them in to four braids. In the morning I rinsed it out and noticed that my hair was soft. Overall, I wouldn’t purchase again solely based on the price for 4 ounces of product, I just can’t get with paying more than 8 or 9 dollars for 4 ounces of product.
I cleansed my scalp with my HG Olive and Babbasu Shampoo Bar from Chagrin Valley and followed up with a much needed protein treatment. I didn’t fully check the ingredients from HH but I opted to use my SheScentIt Okra “Hair Repair” Reconstructor. This isn’t a full review because I’m solely focusing on HH products but let me just say that my hair LOVES this reconstructor. I play to rotate this during every wash day during the winter and in the spring/summer/fall I will use it 2x a month rotating it with a moisturizing conditioner. More on this product later.
Sticky Honey Hash Conditioner
Ingredients: Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Hemp Butter, Olive Oil, E-wax, Fragrance, Honey, Glycerin, Germall Plus, Pine Oil
Directions:Use after shampooing. Leave in for 3-5 minutes and rinse. Use to detangle
Price: 26.00 for 16 ounces
Again, I DO NOT FOLLOW instructions. IDK why I never do but I know my hurr so I do as I please. Anywho I used this to deeeep condition with, I figured the honey and glycerin would be a nice steam treatment for Azizi (my hurr) since she happens to LIVE for honey. So I applied this to clean hair in four sections…attempted to detangle. Let me repeat, attempted to detangle. Yeah, detangling with this product, not so much. Sat under my steamer for about 15 minutes and washed out. Smell wise, I can detect a faint smell of honey but that’s about it. I will say that after washing this out my hair was soft and my curls were poppin. I may add this to the non repurchase list, price point is killing me. Plus my hair really loves Oyin’s Honey Hemp condish.
After washing out this condish I added Hairveda’s Vatika Frosting to do an oil rinse with. Can I just say how yummy this product smells. It reminds me of cake batter or something sweet like that. But I will do a full review on this product later.
Time for LCO in which I used:
L- Alikay Natural’s Lemon Grass Leave In
C- Hairitage Hydration Soft Coconut Marshmallow
O-Grapeseed and Sweet Almond Oil mix
Soft Coconut Marshmallow
Ingredients: Purified Water infused with Marshmallow Root, Lime butter, Castor Oil, Irish Moss Infused Coconut Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, BTMS-50, Germall Plus,Lime and Tea Tree Essential Oil
Directions:Distribute throughout the hair. Finger comb out tangles or use a wide-toothed comb.
Price: 15.00 for 8 oz
As previously stated, I used this during my LCO method and it was okay. I was able to detangle with the product and it did leave a pleasant smell in my hair. This does not smell like marshmallow anything, it moreso smells of limes…maybe key lime pie. Not much to write home about this product, it did keep my hair mositurized and it’s not too thick of a LI for my low porosity hair. I need to use this more to decide if I will repurchase or not.
Lastly, I used the Castor Infusion on my edges. I want to use that a few more times and then provide you all with a detailed review on that along with the products I already reviewed and the two others that I have left to review. I shall do an updated review sometime in the New Year.
Overall, I did like some of the products, others were just eh. Sheena is currently hosting a 26 percent off sale that runs today from 2 – 6pm EST.
Stalk her here:
Just a small disclaimer: If you are going to purchase from this line, please do your research. This vendor has had issues with customer service, product reformulations without notifying customers and unsanitary conditons. Needless to say, everyone is their own person and makes their own personal decisions. I just thought I throw that out there as a small disclaimer.
Until next time
Peace & Love <3
