Crítica (Review): Mahogany Queen’s Honey Coconut Shea

Mahogany Queen is the name of a brand new company starting their own line of homemade natural hair care products. I was kindly asked to review the first product on their line, which is their Honey Coconut Shea.

For this product review, I have teamed up with “V” from the blog, My Natural Me. Look for her video review of the product and how she used it in her natural hair styling after my review below : )

Mahogany Queen’s Honey Coconut Shea

Mahogany Queen’s Honey Coconut Shea is a cream made specifically to moisturize natural hair before and during styling, also pairs nicely with gels to help lock-in-moisture. Apply liberally to wet hair after a shampoo or co-wash. This cream can also be used on your skin. A little bit can really go a long way.

Ingredients: shea, coconut oil, coconut cream, honey, avocado oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, extra virgin olive oil, essential oil fragrance

Natural Chica’s Crítica: The first thing I noticed when I opened the jar of the product was it’s scent. Although it wasn’t specifically listed, I could tell lemongrass was one of the essential oils that was used, since that happens to be my favorite : ) The consistency of the honey coconut shea reminded me of that of whipped butter (very thick but smooth and creamy). I used this product to help retwist my hair at night after spritzing, when I was wearing a twist out and it did help maintain my twist definition. It left my hair feeling just as soft as before I used the product. It was said that this product could be used on your skin, but I found it too be a bit too sticky for use on hands and arms. I had to wash it off after applying and use plain shea butter. Overall, I think it’s a nice product to use to help seal in moisture for the hair before styling.

A Reader’s 6 Month Natural Hair Update!- Kisha

Back in October, I shared an encouraging note I received from a reader named Kisha. She recently shared with me her 6 month natural hair update and of course I had to share with you all as well : )

(From Kisha’s note in October)

Hey Mae,
Just checking in to give you and your readers an update on my progress! This month i’ll be celebrating 6 months..WHEW!! how time flies. I must say im so loving this journey and enjoying the ride. i learn somethin new everyday. i’ve been twirking my reggie as i go and im proud to say i have a full 3 inches! EEEEK!! i was excited to stumble across being able to do twists becuz i thought my twa was only limited to coils. Im such a product junkie its ridick and i have to put myself on a no buying stash challenge (til April). OMG, my hair is so fun to play with. LOVE ur blog, LOVE ur youtube and LOVE you for sharing your ideas and tips.
I will say for anyone who’s started fresh like me wit the amber rose cut #1 CONGRATS!! becuz it definitely takes an extra confident women to just shed it ALL!! (got love for my transitioners too becuz i know i dnt have the patience to hold on that long, lol) Also, be patient becuz i know how it is to wake up everyday wishing your hair could grow faster and longer. I got so caught up and anxious in wanting my hair to look like this person’s and that; i didnt get a chance to appreciate those low maintenance months where i could just wake up and go. I’ve learned to just not think about it and let it be, that way your not disappointed when it doesnt come out looking like ur hair idols. Just take the time to enjoy YOUR hair and get to know its needs and wants. The length will come in due time so im learning how to maintain it and make it nice and healthy. It’s truly my baby. I’ve named her Bianca Devine becuz it just sounds fierce, lol.
I’ve submerged myself totally into researching products and maintenance on natural hair. I havent used an umbrella in 6 months and my skin including my face has been flawless. I still have occassional haterz who throw their 2 cents in and criticize my decision by sayin “its nappy”,”why did u do that to your hair”, “put a perm back in” and all types of foolishness. Call me nappy, kinky, dry lookin or whatever but just make sure you add healthy and gorgeous in front of it. So for my TWA Honiez; stay strong and enjoy doing little to nothing. Mae, im sure i’ll run into you at Whole Foods next time ur in the DMV, lol. (also, last time ur readers asked me if i had a blog…**sigh** im still workin on it but u can find me on Natural Chica and CurlyNikki’s forum as NubieNatty)
 
[Look at that growth! Go chica!! : ) ]

(As always, I love hearing from ALL my lovely readers so don’t hesitate to send me an email at naturalchicablog@gmail.com)
