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.

Super Defined Braid Out w/ L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil Collection

For all my naturals out there, YOU already KNOW how we are about our hair and the products that we put into it.... no sulfates, no harsh chemicals, etc, etc. So needless to say, I was a bit skeptical to try the new L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil collection because all products are not made the same and what works good for ladies with straight or relaxed hair is not always the best for use kinky/curly chicas.

So before we get into the review, let's talk a little bit  about these products....

Influenster and L'Oreal Paris handpicked myself and a few other bloggers to try out their new line of hair care products. The Extraordinary Oil Collection is a 4 part system formulated to restore and nourish dry hair. It contains lightweight essential oils like Argan, Chamomile, Coconut, Amla, Soja and Sunflower to revitilize, moisturize and add shine to hair. It's mentioned to eliminate dryness in just 1 wash.

My Review

I was surprised at how the products worked in my hair. With the shampoo containing our dreaded frenemy as naturalistas... SULFATE, it actually did not dry out my hair and I was very surprised at how moisturized and shiny it left it (I have black permanent color on my hair, so the curls were DEF poppin). The conditioner is semi-thick in consistency easily detangled my hair, so I was happy about that.

When it came to the styling process... I used the oil-in- cream along with my Hello Curlies gel and they paired really well together with no sticky or white residue. The oil-in cream, really helped to maintain that softness and sheen from the wash process which I really liked. I used the Oil serum during the take down process of my braid out and it really helped with elevating frizz. NOW I know a lot of bloggers say this, but seriously, you don't need a lot of this oil and it really did help with preventing frizz because when I separate my hair, as much as I try, I do get some frizz but not this time!!

Here are more pics of the finished results...

You can find out where to buy these products by visitng L'OREAL's website and if you are skeptical about the shampoo, make sure you definitely try the other products. The conditioner can definitely double as a deep conditioner and the cream oil leave in and oil serum are amazing.
