Product Review- Mill Creek Henna Conditioner
I purchased this product in a natural store somewhere in Cambridge. I can’t remember the particular name of the road but I guess that this product should be available in any natural store in the UK. You could also buy it online if you would also like to try it out. I personally purchased it for two reasons. Firstly, the word henna on it caught my eye. I’ve never seen a product with henna as the number two ingredient so you could say I bought it out of curiosity. (For those of you who don’t know what henna is, it is basically a plant-derived all natural dye, that can be used to colour, thicken, strengthen and add shine to your hair).
My second reason was because I have also tried the Mill Creek Biotin Shampoo and Conditioner and I can certainly vouch that it gives the best protein treatment for my hair.
Here’s how I used it : I applied this conditioner liberally all over my hair after shampooing and left it in for 30 minutes under a shower cap. Then followed with an apple cider vinegar rinse, applied a leave in conditioner, styled in medium single braids and allowed my hair to dry overnight whilst sleeping in a satin bonnet.
My result the next morning was quite surprising. Even my sister had to comment on my hair colour. I knew the conditioner had henna as the second ingredient but I did not expect it to give any obvious colour change after first use because, organic henna is proven to only show drastic hair colour results after repetitive use.
The company emphasises on the product that, “Our exclusive blend of pure botanical Henna and Keratin protein does not impart hair colour so it can be used on all hair colours to help your hair become shinier and more manageable. Our Enhancing Formula works naturally to condition and accent the highlights of the hair and capture the hidden tones.”
So I’m thinking does that mean this product revealed some hidden colours my hair had? I honestly don’t know but I do like the results, only that I just wasn’t prepared for it. If anyone has tried this product on their natural hair let me know in comment section below. 🙂
