Mielle Mongongo Oil Collection Review
It's been all over Instagram for a while and I am so glad to say I got a chance to review this entire line thanks to the lovely Monique from Mielle Organics!
First off let me talk about the packaging. Everything was packaged super well! The tubes all had a plastic foil sealing under the cap and under the jar as well. Not to mention the beautiful box they come in along with lots of informative pamphlets!
Pre Shampoo Treatment
The pre shampoo treatment is a clear serum- like liquid that is best applied directly to the scalp and then the hair, to help loosen dirt and product buildup. 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 could be applied directly to the scalp.
Mongongo Oil Exfoliating Shampoo
This shampoo is hands down one of the best I've ever used! It left my hair so soft and moisturized that I almost felt that I didn't even need to follow with a conditioner! It's literally that good! I was able to detangle my hair using only this shampoo, and in my book that means its bomb!!!
I look forward to this shampoo becoming a staple part of my hair care routine!
The scent was another wonderful little bonus. It smells so light, delicate and comforting with a hint of sweetness that made me feel calm and relaxed! Mielle knocked it out of the ball park with this one! I give it two thumbs up! 👍
Mongongo Oil Hydrating Conditioner
This deep conditioner comes in an 8oz jar, just like Mielle's Babassu Conditioner. Its thick, its creamy and best of all, it's protein free for all the protein sensitive gals out there. I loved how rich and luxurious it felt going on my hair and how readily it was absorbed into my strands. Good conditioners to me are the hallmark of any haircare line so I am beyond impressed with this deep conditioner! It left my tresses hydrated, soft and strengthened!
The fragrance is similar to that of the shampoo but slightly different somewhat. Its a very beautiful and soothing fragrance and its definitely not too overpowering at all!
I can not ever be out of this deep conditioner! If you're looking for a holy-grail deep conditioner, I dare say, this might be it!
Mongongo Heat Protectant Spray
This heat spray is now automatically my favorite! I've used many heat sprays and they always cause my hair to poof up in no time. This one seems to combat frizz and humidity! Win win!
The best thing about this product is the fact that it causes my hair to look so much straighter and stretched with just the blow dryer that I've ever been able to achieve! Ive never had any luck with straightening my own hair, but this line has renewed my hope that I can do it!!! I'll be trying this out soon! stay tuned!
Mongongo Pomade-to-oil treatment & Mongongo Style Setting Spray
I used both these products for styling my perm rod set and at first I was skeptical because I always used thick creams or butters for my perm rod sets, but believe me, I was not disappointed!
My curls were nice and defined with a nice hold that was neither crunchy or too soft. It was just perfect! 👌 I loved the texture of the pomade-to- oil treatment and how moisturizing the spray felt! Setting sprays that I've used in the past were laced with alcohol which generally left my hair dry and stiff, but not this setting spray, it gets the job done without any of the harsh chemicals we've come to expect of setting sprays.
Overall I loved this line very much and I will be using it again, and again, and again! Definitely a winner in my book! Next I'll probably be pairing it with some other products from the previous lines by Mielle organics. I've heard that they play well together.
