If you’re an OG youtuber, then you know of Whitney White (commonly called Naptural85) created a natural hair product line – Melanin Hair Care . She created videos that would aid us in caring for our hair using DIY products that would moisturise, cleanse and style our hair. In addition, she always had tips and tricks for us to achieve our favourite hairstyles. We all encouraged her to create her own hair care line and 7 years later she did. Melanin Hair Care products will definitely become a staple in our hair regimen.
The haircare line has a :
– Melanin Cotton Scarf
– Melanin Visor
– Multi-Pure Oil Blend
– Twist Elongating Cream (Review Below)
Melanin Hair Care Twist Elongating Style Cream:
I only purchased the styler because I prefer stylers over moisturising products. However, I was sceptical about using the stylers because cream stylers never work for my hair. My hair always looks like a frizz ball after day one which is a waste of my efforts. However, with the twist elongating cream my hair can last anywhere between 3 to 5 days and I’m so happy. Let’s get into the product.
We love natural hair products that have no parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, formaldehyde or phthalates and if you know Whitney, you know it is free of it. Next, it has a lot of oils. Whitney does use a lot of oils in her DIY products because of the various benefits such as nourishment, strengthen, growth and even adding sheens to our tresses. In addition, it has the main ingredient which is shea butter! I never thought that shea butter could be a styler because of the texture but Whitney showed me something new. It can be used for twistouts, braidouts and even WASH AND GOS. Last but not least, the cream should elongate your curls. My oh my, it does add some lengthen your results. However, it depends on how you preserve your twists overnight because it may cause your style to shrink.
