Mixed Chicks products- Making Natural Hair Care Easy!

Mixed Chicks

When the natural hair revolution started, circa early 2000's there was Mixed Chicks. Founded by Wendy Levy and Kim Etheridge this brand has made it's mark in the Natural hair community, and most naturals have tried Mixed Chicks products.
I was so excited when I got the chance to try them this month, and I am blown away by how well they worked for my hair. 

Conditioning Cleansing Cowash-
 I love the slip of this conditioner. Typical cowashes tend to leave my scalp dirty, so I was so pleased to see how clean both my hair and scalp were.  I also loved the scent. It definitely wasn't overpowering at all and makes an excellent deep conditioner too,  just add a plastic cap for 15 minutes!

Daily Hair Dress-
This stuff is amazing! Its a rich and creamy daily moisturizer that doubles as a great leave in. With great ingredients like sweet almond oil, safflower seed oil and avocado oil, I knew this moisturizer was going to work wonders for my hair!
I feel like I could use this …

Mielle Mongongo Oil Collection Review

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that Mielle Organics has dropped that new, new- Mongongo Collection!

It basically makes the job of the shampoo easier.  I found it to be very effective at removing dirt and I also loved the light peppermint scent! It has a wonderful cooling effect on my scalp.  Overall I do like this product, however I wish it came with an applicator tip instead so it…

Clishea Hair Products

CliShea- Healthy hair care line

Recently I had the privilege of trying these fabulous products by Clishea. My interest was piqued when I found out that this line has Tamanu oil, a favourite of mine. Tamanu oil has many beneficial properties and helps to protect the hair and scalp while promoting growth and length retention. The simple yet stylish packaging was very appealing too. Clishea sells an assortment of hair kits. Each hair kit comes with all the products shown but with one varying key ingredient. From example, there is Tamanu oil in the Tamanu kit shown above, there's also an argan oil kit and an olive oil kit. 
Performance I was a bit skeptical at first because honestly, these products are pretty small compared to others. However, they are very concentrated and only a small amount is needed. The shampoo cleans well without leaving my hair dryer or stripped. The entire line has a relaxing scent. It reminds me of being at the spa. There's a hint of citrus followed by lave…
