This stuff smells delightful. Smell is very important to me when it comes to the products I put on my hair and skin. I suppose after the visual of the product, the smell is the next way you experience it. If it smells bad, it will psychologically affect how you experience the product. You’re not going to enjoy something that smells awful as it touches your hair and skin. This smells great so when it says nourishing, you expect it to be really good for your hair. Well let’s see how that pans out.
This was one that was for the kid’s hair. It left their curls feeling lovely, soft, clean, fluffy and springy. I guess all of the things you would want from healthy hair. I tried my best to not be so heavy-handed which is my default setting.
Someone actually said the kid’s hair felt drier than normal after it was used for the first time but I think this was because it didn’t leave any sort of residue in their hair, although not an actual co-wash or cleansing conditioner, it did a good job of removing buildup. It also gave great slip on soaking wet hair which made detangling so much easier.
The star ingredient is Manuka Flower Honey. Obviously with Manuka being pushed as the honey of all honeys. It’s definitely the trendy one now. Honey as you may or may not know is a wondrous ingredient for your hair and skin and it doesn’t hurt that it tastes pretty delicious.
According to StyleCraze.com there are some pretty awesome reasons why you should use honey up top. I personally like the fact that it helps keep your hair clean and minimises the clogging of pores which is a major concern with cowashing. You need to know that your hair is getting clean not just moisturised.
It strengthens the hair which is helpful for our family as I haven’t yet incorporated protein treatments into the kids’ routine and as I have low porosity hair, apparently this would not be advisable. Which reminds me that I haven’t checked the kid’s porosity. Something I really need to do. It has antioxidant, antibacterial and antiseptic properties too, all my favourite antis.
It also contains Amla Oil which I am looking forward to trying in my own oil mixes at some point, Cocoa Butter which I am now starting to experiment with on my own and trusty old Shea Butter.
All of these ingredients show in the feel of your hair, the kids curls felt great and my favourite little trick of warming up the conditioner (dropping it into the bath for a few minutes does the trick or leaving it on a windowsill or if you’re feeling fancy you could make a bain-marie or put some in the microwave) enhances its softening qualities. I think the Palmer’s Co Wash is still a contender for the best all round conditioner but I definitely do like this one too.
Let’s keep growing together!
