Self-care Sunday: Haircare

Mielle Pomegranate and Honey Line Review

I have recently cut about an inch of hair off and decided to get my act together and take better care of it and in the process explore new haircare lines that I have never tried before.

From the moment I cut my hair in 2014 -I think it was 2014, I predominantly used Shea Moisture and tried several of their releases. I also tried a few pieces from from The Mane Choice, so let the exploration begin.

First up is Mielle’s Pomegranate and Honey Line . I purchased the Moisturizing and Detangling Shampoo & Conditioner, their Leave- in Conditioner and Curling Custard and used it for a month and here are my thoughts.

Mielle Pomegranate & Honey Moisturizing and detangling Shampoo

Ingredients:

Water (Aqua, Eau), Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Polyquaternium-7, Disodium Cocoamphodipropionate, Cocamide Mea, Glycol Stearate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Fragrance, Honey, Peg-150 Distearate, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Glycerin, Silk Protein, Organic Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Oil, Organic Mauritia Flexuosa (Buriti) Fruit Oil, Organic Copaiferi Officinalis (Balsam Copaiba), Organic Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glycereth-2 Cocoate

I found the shampoo to be cleansing but not very moisturizing, it also didn’t possess very much slip as such I did not us it for the purpose of detangling. It however didn’t leave my hair dry and so I would say its worth a try.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua, Eau), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Stearalkonium Chloride,Fragrance, Honey, Glycerin, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Organic Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Oil, Organic Mauritia Flexuosa (Buriti) Fruit Oil, Organic Copaiferi Officinalis (Balsam Copaiba), Organic Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Disodium Edta, Aminomethyl Propanol, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Glycereth-2 Cocoate

The conditioner was an excellent partner to the shampoo as it added moisture and detangling was easy. The claims on the bottle were duely met and based on the how it worked on my hair. However I found that 30 minutes was a better option for my hair as some areas of my hair is low porosity and takes a while to absorb products.

This product was my least favourite of all the products I purchased, I tried to use it several time in different amounts and ways and found that it flaked regardless of how I tried it. I even clarified my hair to clear it of any possible product build up however it was of no use. I hope that this is able to give you some insight into the products and be of some value to you.

Bye for now and I will talk to you soon.
