When it comes to choosing the right products to cleanse, condition and style your hair, determining your hair type, density and porosity is absolutely essential for knowing which products would work best.
I have type 4C hair which has a tight curl pattern, forming tight s’s, z’s or coils.
My hair is also low porosity and tends to be quite fragile, prone to breakage, tangles, frizz and struggles to maintain moisture.
My hair needs lots of love and care and over time I’ve learnt what kind of products my hair tends to love. With the right products, regimen and consistency I can achieve beautiful and healthy curls.
Kiyo Beauty is the ultimate destination for hair care and they stock some of my favourite brands so I decided to try out some new deep conditoners, leave-in and stylers.
Deep conditioning is an essential part of my weekly hair care routine. My hair thrives with hydrating and repairing deep conditioners as they are great for moisturising and nourishing my hair. My goal is healthy and hydrated hair.

Let me start off by saying I’m a huge fan of Camille Rose Naturals and pretty much most of her products work well for me.
Now I have to say that my hair preferred the Jansyn’s Moisture Max Conditioner. The scent is sweet like candy and the consistency is thick and creamy. The Fresh Honey Nectar Deep Conditioning Treatment has a thick and creamy consistency and sweet honey scent.
I found that the Jansyn’s Moisture Max Conditioner had more slip than the Fresh Honey Nectar Deep Conditioning Treatment and penetrated my strands better so overall it was better at detangling, softening and providing moisture.
After shampooing my hair, I section my hair into 4 and apply a generous amount of deep conditioner throughout my hair concentrating mostly on my ends as they need the most TLC. I then proceed to detangle each section with a wide-tooth comb and cover with a shower cap.
The next step is to use a steamer or heat cap to help open up the cuticles and allow the deep conditioner to penetrate my strands. I usually apply heat for 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water afterwards.
My curls are so happy afterwards! Super soft, smooth, moisturised, defined and shiny. There is no frizz in sight so I’m super happy.
Using a leave-in conditioner after washing and conditioning my hair helps to replenish and maintain moisture in my hair.
