REVIEW | Silk 18 Shampoo by Maple Holistics

Awhile back, I did a review on a natural brand called Maple Holistics. They recently reached out to me again to review one of their newest products as well as promote the relaunching of their website (which I am excited about because the line is actually really good!!)

Maple Holistics carries a line of hair, skin, bath & body and personal care products for men and women with a goal of using cruelty-free, premium natural ingredients to promote total wellness. What is unique about the line is a lot of the products have a multipurpose use, such as the essential oils which double as aromatherapy and bath/skin oils.

In addition, the company strives to promote community awareness through the form of academic scholarship and community outreach.

Their new Silk 18 line was created to strengthen and protect hair from breakage, damage and dryness which is achieved by the product’s unique blend of 18 silk amino acids. Additionally, the product works to cleanse hair from impurities without stripping your hair of its oils. Most importantly (for me, that is) is that the product is sulfate and paraben-free which is key for me and my thick curly hair.

Because I am an ingredient ̶w̶h̶o̶r̶e̶, I love that this product only contains a few ingredients, which for me is key as I am cautious about what I put into and on my body.

  • Silk Amino Acids

  • Botanical Keratin

  • Jojoba Oil

  • Argan Oil

  • Natural Vanilla Fragrance

  • Aqua

These ingredients work together to promote protein induced strength for your hair, as well as making it great for all hair types… including color treated hair.

Holiday Style: Low Curly Ponytail

Low Curly ponytail

If you are following me on Instagram, you already know that I have been helping to get you prepared for the holidays with 6 weeks of hair style inspiration! I decided to highlight some of my favorite styles on the blog so that you can recreate them.


LOW PONYTAIL- this is a simple yet gorgeous hairstyle that is perfect for the holiday season! Very Low maintenance!

TO ACHIEVE THIS STYLE...

  1.  I co-washed my hair using Matrix Bioloage Hydrasource Conditioner.
  2.  Banded wet hair to stretch used Hello Curlies "leave-in conditioner & buttermilk moisturizer" and Aphogee "keratin & green tea reconstructor."
  3. The next morning, I used CHI "silk infusion" oil to flat iron my hair straight (I passed the flat iron only once through my hair.)
  4. Gathered hair into a low bun using the plastic elastic bands.
  5. Used 14'' loose curly hair I bought from the beauty supply and secured it around my hair with bobby pins.
  6. Laid my edges with CURLS "blueberry loss control paste."
  7. Teased ponytail for more volume.
