10 Reasons You Should Try Melanin Gold Beauty
February 3, 2018
I recently tried out some new hair products and I wanted to share the love. If you're a fellow naturalista, you know how difficult it can be to find products that work for our curls and kinks. The struggle is real. But I really enjoyed these products and I can honestly say my curls were thriving after wash day. They were moisturized, shiny, & bouncy. What more can a girl ask for? You guys have to try this brand and today I'm sharing 10 reasons why.
1. THE NAME.
Ummm. Can we just take a moment to admire the name? Say it with me... MELANIN GOLD BEAUTY. The name alone has me ready to activate my inner goddess.
2. SAFE & NATURAL.
When choosing hair products, I prefer to use natural brands and opt out for brands who use harsh ingredients. Melanin Gold Beauty fits the bill! Their products are paraben and sulfate free. Additionally, some of the products are vegan, soy free, gluten free, VOC free, and/or alcohol free. That's a lot of freedom, okurrrrr.
3. THE INGREDIENTS.
Melanin Gold Beauty understands healthy hair is important and the key to flawless curls. Their products include healthy ingredients like Aloe Vera, Sage, Ginseng, Chamomile, Jojoba Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Peppermint Oil, Castor oil, Tea Tree oil, and more. I'M HERE FOR IT.4. THE SCENT.
When choosing hair products, the scent is make or break for me. I never use products that are heavily scented. The thought of half of my bottle of conditioner being liquid perfume--it's a no for me, dawg. I gravitate to products that have a light airy floral or coconut scent. Again, Melanin Gold Beauty passed this test.
5. THE SHAMPOO.
I don't usually use shampoo. I'm more of co-wash girl. But the Crown of Curls Cleansing Shampoois vegan, sulfate, free, paraben free, & VOC free so I had to give it a try. I was thoroughly impressed. The formula is very light and actually feels more like a co-wash than a shampoo. A quarter-size amount does the trick and will have your curls feeling squeaky clean.
6. THE CONDITIONER.
The Crown of Curls Reconstructive Conditioner is great for detangling and it leaves your hair extremely hydrated. This stuff smells like a bed of flowers with subtle hints of fruit. But the true win here was the way this conditioner transformed my ball of frizz to defined curls.
7. THE HAIR GROWTH OIL.
I'm a big advocate of natural oils, especially when it comes to hair. I love that the MGB Hair Growth Oil is array of some of my favorite oils including coconut, jojoba, tea tree, peppermint, and castor. I massage the oil into my scalp and ends in between shampooing and conditioning. This helps to lock in moisture and promotes growth. Bonus: the peppermint leaves a refreshing tingling sensation on your scalp.
8. EDGES LAID.
The Crown Control Edge Tamer is thick but not cakey. I love using the edge control on days where I choose to slick my hair down into a bun. It adds shine and helps my hair lay flat. The bonus? No flaking or annoying product gunk!
9. IT'S AFFORDABLE.
Melanin Gold Beauty products range from $9 to $13 each. This is great because you can get the whole collection for less than $50. For someone who doesn't have the will power to use conditioner sparingly - this is much appreciated.
10. BLACK GIRL MAGIC.
The owner, Ariana Cook, is a 24 year-old black mompreneur. How amazing is that?! There's nothing like products made for us BY US. You can really tell that Ariana puts her all into creating quality products for us curly chicks. Bonus, she's also a fellow California girl. :)
