I was gifted two products to try by the lovely ladies of Roots To Curls, here in Toronto. They have an online boutique filled with many lines to pick and choose from for any Naturalista! I received the products the week of my event, Hair Talk, which took place, on November 1, 2014.
TGIN, Honey Miracle Hair Mask, with Raw Honey and Olive Oil:
I thought this was perfect timing for me to try out a hair mask, as the weather had already turned slightly colder already. I have thick, dense, coloured hair and the myth is colour treated hair is always more dry and prone to damage, etc. Not the case, I promise! It all depends on the product and who is doing the application. Moving along, so yes, I was very excited to try this and I’m glad I did. I washed with a shampoo and followed with the hair mask. I had to say before I had shampooed my hair, it did seem a bit dry, but that was to be expected with the change in weather. I put the product in and I was able to comb through my hair with ease. You can do one of two things, you can leave the product in your hair for about 35 minutes or you can sit under a dryer for about 10-15 minutes for a good steam. I decided to leave the product in my hair, while I showered. Having said that, I didn’t let the product sit in for 35 minutes, but still had great results. Imagine, had I waited the full time or done the steam –oh my! I was strapped for time, as I decided to wash my hair at 1am, the night before my event. I know, I know, shame on me! I recommend that everyone pick up a heavier conditioning product for their hair, during the Winter months. I recommend this product to anyone who needs a bit of moisture. Well, who doesn’t need a bit of moisture? This product left my hair feeling really soft, conditioned, and easy to comb through. As I didn’t have an issue rinsing this product out of my hair, and I didn’t sense any heaviness or residue left on my hair, I would suggest this to people who have fine hair as well – suitable for everyone. When you put a hair mask on, the feeling that your hair should be left with, is utter softness – you should be able to finger detangle your hair if that is something that you normally do or comb through, with a wide toothed comb. I give this product two thumbs up!
TGIN, Twist and Define Cream, with Coconut Oil and Vitamin Oil:
I followed with this product to do a twist out, on wet hair. I thought it was a good follow up product to the mask for the larger twists that I had planned on doing. I have thick, dense hair and I find that creams work better for me when my hair has already been stretched out. The product also had a great smell that wasn’t at all overpowering in any way. I was left with very manageable hair, considering it was left out in an afro for a few days. I have to say that my hair looked pretty fabulous for the day of my event, so I was quite pleased with the results. I was going for a large messy afro and that’s the look that I had achieved.
After using both products together, I would have to say that my hair got a special treat, and I can’t wait to use my hair mask again, when I take out my current protective style.
