Creme of Nature hair care brand have a new collection of products called Pure Honey.
I was so excited to try these products as I am a huge fan of using honey in my 4C hair, as soon as my hair starts to feel crispy and dry I load it with a home-made deep treatment honey mask and the moisture balance instantly improves. Honey works by drawing in the moisture, the more moisturised your strands are reduces the chances of breakage. The collection formula also contains shea butter and coconut oil, the collection has been formulated to maintain moisture and keep all hair types soft and smooth.
The Pure Honey Moisturizing Dry Defense Shampoo was so moisturising. My hair was so soft and rejuvenated, but at the same time it cleansed my scalp and hair thoroughly after just one rinse. Some shampoos can leave your hair stiff and dry, but this did the opposite. The velvet formula left my hair smooth and silky and I was even able to start the detangling process at the shampoo stage. The shampoo comes in a small bottle of 355 mls, but you do not need much as it foams up so much meaning it is great value for money. This was by far my favourite product I tried out of the collection and I have been using it over the summer. The only downside to the shampoo is that it contains parabens so if you like 100% natural formulas this may not be for you.
I was really looking forward to using the Pure Honey Moisturizing Dry Defense Conditioner. The formula is extremely thick and creamy and it has a nice pleasant smell. However on applying the conditioner to my strands I instantly regretted it. The conditioner immediately made my hair ridiculously hard and it sucked all the moisture out of my kinks, which is pretty ironic as it is supposed to lock in the moisture. The shampoo was actually more moisturising than the conditioner and I was not able to detangle my hair at all. The conditioner was so awful I had to use my regular conditioner to salvage my hair. I wanted this conditioner to be great, but unfortunately I would not be using it again, unless Creme of Nature switch up the formula.
The last product I purchased was the Pure Honey Moisture Infusion Edge Control. This product has been described as having 24 hour hold and anti-frizz, now these are big claims for Creme of Nature to be making. The edge control did keep my hair in place but just not for very long, like most edge controls applied to my 4C kinks my hair started to roll back up into coils and became frizzy. It did an ok job of keeping my hair in place but just not slicked down. A plus side of the product was that there was no white residue and it reacted well to being mixed with other products.
Over the next few weeks I will be trying out the hair mask and the leave in conditioner. I will let you guys know how I get on.
