My Coco Mango Styling Pomade Experience:
Before using this product, I washed and conditioned my hair the day before, and allowed it to dry as usual. The directions for the Pomade state to “apply a small amount throughout hair from root to tip. Small amount goes a long way. Can be used as a pre-treatment. Elminate frizz. Seal in moisture. Recommended use slight dry/damp hair.”
I have extremely thick, as in, “deep-in-the-mighty-jungle”, thick hair! I have low porosity also, so my plan was to section my hair and use the pomade to seal in moisture. I opened up the product and was greeted with the sweet smell of mango, with a hint of coconut. I was immediately impressed! The product contained JUST the right combination of coconut and mango. The consistency of this product is the same as Coconut Oil. It is solid and the manufacturer notes that it will melt if placed near heat.
I began by sectioning a small amount of hair and spritzing water onto my hand. I then applied the water to my hair to dampen it, and next applied the pomade. I used a nickel sized amount because my hair is dramatic and acts as if it’s dehydrated all the time. After applying the pomade, I proceeded with the Hair Jelly Curl Enhancer.
My Hair Jelly Curl Enhancer Experience:
LOVE IT! I opened the container and fell in LOVE with the Hair Jelly. The fragrance of this Jelly reminds me of Honeysuckle: sweet, but not over-powering. The consistency of the product reminds me more of the Jell-O Pudding I ate when I was a child.
After I finally stopped smelling the product, I decided to read the directions and finish setting my hair. Instructions for the product state to “cleanse and detangle hair. Smooth product through from root to ends. Style as desired. Recommended use: Coils, Twists, Curls, Control Frizz. Smooth and Define.”
I have type 4a hair, with types 3c, 4b, and 4c laced throughout my entire head. I am capable of achieving a wash and go, but I prefer flat twist-outs because of the uniform look I achieve. So after I applied the pomade, I applied the Hair Jelly and proceeded to flat twist my hair. I then placed flexi-rods at the end of my hair and allowed it to air dry.
My Coco Mango Styling Pomade Results:
I must say- I have a tumultuous relationship with Coconut Oil I have used other products that contained coconut oil and experienced a type of reaction that made my scalp itch. I would scratch my scalp continuously and would not obtain relief until I washed my hair. I always LOVED the way that coconut oil provided moisture to my hair, but didn’t like the itchy scalp. That’s when I discovered that the QUALITY of coconut oil made a difference. I can say that I used this product and… NO ITCH!!! This product renewed my faith and love in coconut oil. This product truly did moisturize my hair and give it shine. I did not have to use a lot of the product, and I experienced absolutely no itch. My personal opinion is that my scalp was able to tolerate this pomade because of the simple, yet high quality, ingredients this Pomade contains.
My Hair Jelly Curl Enhancer Results:
So I’m sure you can tell that I love the scent of this product! My hubby even commented on the smell of my hair! This product did indeed define the 4a curls in my hair. It also provided moisture and was not drying in the least. I was able to achieve a cute flat twist-out, with defined hair as well. It also provided light hold, as indicated.
Definitely affordable! I don’t know about you, but I live on a budget. Although I don’t judge those that do, I’m just too cheap to spend $30 on a 8oz bottle of product that my low porosity hair will only get 2 uses out of! Because both of these products only require a small amount of product, I will be able to use these products for several styling sessions, and still maintain my budget.
Kudos to Dezign Ayuan Naturals for providing a product that is REASONABLY priced, AND contains high quality, natural ingredients! I loved both products. Each product delivered as promised. I do wish that the Hair Jelly had a stronger hold as I try to make my twist-outs last a week without re-twisting (busy mom here!). Of course, this is a personal preference but I am sure I could prolong my style by re-twisting at night. Another drawback is that these products are not yet available on the ground… but I am sure that they eventually will be
