Tame unruly hair with a lush, natural hair mask containing Amla (a.k.a. Indian Gooseberry Oil) & Shikakai
Nothing beats a good hair day, does it?
But what constitutes a good hair day is subjective. It seems that many curly-haired gals envy the smooth, shiny, silky hair of straight-haired gals. And often those with straight hair wish they had a head full of curly ringlets! And then there are those of us with hair that marches to its’ own drummer and won’t stay straight OR form a soft, loose curl pattern. Â Natural curly hair is beautiful. But sometimes, you want to look like yourself, just more polished. If your hair has too much natural curl or frizz to work it into the style you want, then take a look atÂ Treasured Locks SuperNatural Curl Tamer.
Treasured Locks SuperNatural Curl Tamer is an herbal hair mask that provides major conditioning, frizz reduction and it loosens too-curly curls. This mask allows curly head girls to create straight hairstyles that last. If you straighten your hair and it still looks too wavy or wiry, or your hair looks dry and brittle once straightened, SuperNatural Curl Tamer can help.
SuperNatural Curl Tamer, is foremost, natural. It conditions and hydrates all hair types, but is especially effective on natural African-American hair, relaxed hair and biracial hair. It also works wonders on naturally wiry or coarse hair, as seen on our model. Her hair grows in several sections, like a bunch of cowlicks, with uneven waves and both very curly and straight ends that will not be coaxed into a softer hot roller curl. It is also resistant to hair straightening without LOTS of product combined with lots of flat ironing. Any straightening attempts to leave her hair dry and damaged. She was concerned that chemical straighteners would add to the frizzy and damaged appearance of the hair or potentially cause breakage. So our model was eager to try a natural mask that could both condition her hair and help tame her curls into a manageable style.
WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT TREASURED LOCKS SUPERNATURAL CURL TAMER HAIR MASK
If you try to battle too-curly hair into a straight style, you likely use hot tools that can cause hair breakage. This pulling motion is also harsh on the hair roots, as hair is being pulled and yanked straight. Treasured Locks has you covered with a fantastic combination of ingredients that not only softens and conditions hair, but makes it stronger, both at the root and within the body of the hair. Best of all, it enhances the curl patterns of hair to make them softer, pliable and workable. We love that it is natural and uses some of our favorite hair-friendly ingredients.
Henna strengthens brittle hair cuticles and reduces breakage. It also can loosen a natural curl. The henna works more efficiently when combined with extracts like Amla (Indian gooseberry) and Shikakai (Acacia Concinna). Both extracts are ingredients in this SuperNatural Curl Tamer.
Amla is known as a wonder fruit; this is the famed Indian Gooseberry Oil, a non-greasy wonder oil that has been used in India for years to help grow long, silky and shiny hair. Indian Gooseberry is an ingredient I look for in hair care because it makes my hair soft, silky, and pliable. Often found in high-end expensive hair care product lines, Amla nourishes both hair and scalp and is reputed to promote hair growth and prevent gray hair.
Acacia (Shikakai) improves hair texture as a conditioning agent, and it nourishes the scalp to promote hair growth.
Neem Oil is like a facial for your scalp, removing sebum, dandruff and dry skin flakes and eczema that can all impair hair growth. It promotes hair growth by improving the health of the scalp, giving it a soothing, protective barrier. It also makes hair soft. Of note, you cannot smell the Neem within this product.
Rose powder adds fragrance as well as softens hair.
Multani Mitti is better known as Fuller’s Earth. It removes toxins from hair and scalp. It also facilitates blood circulation, which helps hair growth. It is a conditioning cleanser that makes hair smooth and shiny.
OUR EXPERIENCE USING SUPERNATURAL CURL TAMER
Like a spa treatment for hair, allocate at least 30 minutes to one hour to relax with the treatment mask in your hair. We also recommend using the Treasured Locks Hydracap to keep the mask on your hair and off your neck, as well as keeping the mask warm, which enhances the conditioning properties of several of the ingredients. Read more about Hydracaps in this post.
- MIX WITH WATER: Follow the directions and mix the contents in a bowl with water, slowly adding the water to keep the correct consistency. The directions don’t indicate how much water to use, for reference I used 200ml (5 3/4 ounces) but could have used a bit more for a liquid consistency. It made a full coloring bowls worth of product to apply to the hair, plenty even if you have long and thick hair.
- APPLICATION: Â Apply it to the hair with a hair coloring brush or wide tooth comb. I stopped periodically during application to massage it into the hair from scalp to ends, ensuring all of the hair was coated. I expected it to smell different due to a few of the ingredients having naturally “notable” aromas, but I just detected the Fuller’s Earth, rose, and maybe a bit of the Amla. Â Neither the model or me could smell the Neem.
- WRAP HAIR: Wrap hair with the Hydracap and blow-dry it onto your head. If you don’t have a Hydracap, pin your hair up into a disposable processing cap or saran wrap. Leave in for 30 minutes to one hour. We did the full hour.
- Rinse out the product and wash hair as directed on the package
We allowed the models’ hair to dry naturally, no leave-in treatments or product and without the use of a dryer or other hot tools.
The curls were much more manageable, the hair did not feel weighed down, and the hair felt soft and strong, there was no crunchy feel. It required no product in the hair for the curls to remain looser, which usually it takes lots of product to get any style to stick. The straight hairstyle lasted until the model washed it out. Much to her delight, frizz was reduced, even when she allowed her hair to dry naturally.
Treasured Locks SuperNatural Curl Tamer uses hair-healthy, all natural ingredients to provide an all-natural remedy to reduces frizz, as well as condition and hydrate all hair types. Good for the scalp and the hair, it provides a healthy, natural remedy to relax curls and frizz, leaving hair healthier and stronger in the process.
