I love that Palmer’s have introduced a range that is filled with more natural ingredients.
Chia seeds, rose water and argan oil are just some of the fabulous ingredients the products from the haircare line contains. I am that annoying naturalista friend who wants to know what is in the product and I am always mixing up natural ingredients up in my kitchen for my hair and skin. If it is not as natural as possible then I am not using it. The range is now available in Superdrug stores in the United Kingdom, which is so handy that natural hair products are more easily available to purchase on the high street. It is also great to have a natural range like Natural Fusions because sometimes I don’t have time to be mixing up products in the kitchen, Palmer’s have just made my wash day a whole lot easier.
I picked up a few products to wash my hair, after removing braids that I had been wearing for the last five weeks. At first I was disappointed that I could not find the shampoo to try out as I assumed it was sold out. But on looking on the website there is not a traditional shampoo in the range, but a Micellar Rosewater Cleanser, which is more of a clarifying shampoo. So on my next wash day I will test out the cleanser to remove product build up after wearing canerow braids.
Check out my thoughts below on the products I have tried so far from the Natural Fusions line.
Chia Seed and Argan Oil Hair Mask
The hair mask has to be my favourite product I have tried in the range so far. It is so thick and creamy which is perfect for my kinky textured hair. Oh and the smell is lovely, the product has a rose scented smell and I just love sweet smelling things. The fragrance is a lot stronger and noticeable in the hair mask and conditioner compared to the spray leave-in conditioner.
The first time trying out the product during my wash day I did not detangle my hair as I was going along, as I was really tired from a busy week. So I just applied the hair mask from root to tip and steamed my hair for thirty minutes hoping for the best results. On rinsing out the hair mask it was really easy to separate my hair in preparation for a light blow dry, there were hardly any knots as I was finger detangling. The hairdryer attachment was able to glide through my coils quickly as my hair was so moisturised from the hair mask. The end result was a bouncy and soft afro.
Who even knew that chia seeds can be used as part of a haircare routine? This superfood also has great benefits for the hair in terms of strengthening because chia seeds are packed with protein. I am currently on a hair growth journey over the next six months, I want to be letting my afro free in the summer so any products that can protect my new hair growth is a must.
Mallow Root Leave- In Conditioner
This was my first purchase from the Palmer’s Natural Fusion line, so I have been using this product for many weeks now. I previously reviewed the Mallow Root Leave- In Conditioner on another blog post (click the link to read). My initial review of the product has not changed. It still keeps my hair super soft and it has prevented my strands from becoming dehydrated whilst I am wearing canerow braids. There was not a lot of product build up with the leave-in conditioner when I used it in combination with organic castor oil on my scalp.
It is so hard to find an effective spray leave-in conditioner that does not leave you with a dry and itchy scalp. Palmer’s have formulated a great product that works well on type 4 natural hair.
I am onto my second bottle after using the first one twice a day for about five weeks. So its good value for money.
Lavender Rosewater Conditioner
A little goes a long way with the conditioner, it was not as thick as the hair mask but it spread through my strands to provide a decent coating of my hair. I left the conditioner to sit on my hair for five minutes to nourish my coils. I rinsed out the conditioner and was fairly pleased with the results in terms of limited tangling and my strands felt smooth. The only improvement I can suggest is the formula could be a little bit thicker to give extra slip to make the application process easier. However overall it was a pretty decent conditioner.
I am a big fan of Palmers Natural Fusions line. Reasonably priced, easily available to buy on the high street and most of all soft and moisturised hair. It can be difficult to find hair products that work well on my type 4C hair to stop it from becoming hard and dry, the hair mask and leave-in conditioner did the best job at retaining moisture. Next pay day I might have to spend my coins and purchase the entire line.
