Use every 4-6 weeks for an intensive moisture treatment, or whenever your curls feel excessively dry, brittle and damaged.

This mask has been raved about so I was excited to try it out. It has a sweet honey scent and runny consistency but once applied it coats the hair strands.

My hair feels soft and silky after application and detangling is a breeze. My hair craves moisture so I always deep condition every week. I like to sit under my steamer for 15 minutes and then rinse with cool water.

After rinsing my hair feels super soft, moisturised and hydrated which helps to keep the hair cuticle smooth and shiny.

I definitely had to include this firm favourite. I absolutely love this leave-in and use it as a detangler and styler.  It has 2 of my favourite essential oils (Ylang ylang and May Chang) so you know it smells divine.  The consistency is light and creamy and it delivers adequate moisture to my thick kinky curls.

It literally melts into my hair leaving it super soft, moisturised and tangle free.  My hair stays moisturised for days and when I reapply I don’t get the dreaded product ‘build-up’.

The results from using it as a styler were amazing.  I got incredible frizz free definition from my twist out.
