The Primal Beauty line by X-Sandy's hair and beauty store has done absolute wonders to my curls!! Full of vitamin E, raw & organic Shea butter and cocoa butter this range is 100% curly girl friendly, and consists of:
I tried the Primal Beauty line today, and here's what I thought of it:
The shampoo is one of the best I have tried! It did not dry out my hair, which is easy for any shampoo to do (my hair dries out so easily!) but not today, as you can see from my Instagram post, my hair is still very hydrated and moisturised right after shampooing. The consistency of this shampoo is very liquid like and it lathers really well.
The conditioner works perfectly at restoring any lost moisture and adding smoothness to my tresses. It is light, maybe lighter than I had anticipated, but that makes it work through your hair much quicker and easier in the process.
3. Leave-in Conditioner:
The leave-in conditioner is the perfect consistency for me; it is thicker and creamer than the conditioner, and makes your hair instantly softer and shinier on application. It smells beautiful! It had me day-dreaming of passion fruit and the Caribbean. The smell is not too powerful or overwhelming, however, but it does linger, which for me is exactly what I want.
Next, I tried the Shea butter and cocoa butter tub. This was the first time I had tried something on my hair which had cocoa butter in it, and I must say, my hair absolutely loved it!
I melted it in warm water and it melted into an oily creamy consistency; making it like a 2-in-1 oil/cream product, perfect to use following the leave-in conditioner for the LOC method. It really nourished my hair and didn't give it that dry greasy feeling, so making it easy to comb through with a wide tooth comb.
I waited for my hair to be about 90% dry before adding some of the hair serum. This serum adds that extra shine on the outside, whilst getting to work repairing your hair where needed, from the inside. This hair repair treatment is a blend of seven natural oils that helps to stimulate hair growth. Warning, the smell of this serum is quite strong and it lingers- it has a sort of minty/earthy smell.
Overall, my hair felt really lightweight and bouncy after using these products, not weighed down at all by any heavy oils or ingredients. Perfect for a fluffy natural but defined curly look!
I will definitely be re-stocking up on the pure shea butter and cocoa butter soon, as it is perfect for skin too, I have been using it literally head-to-toe!
As well as the shea butter and cocoa butter, I must admit that I was also taken back by how good the shampoo is! No wonder it is an award winning product! It really cleanses your hair making it feel super clean, whilst not stripping it of moisture and your natural oils. Perfect.
