The Best Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2019 deals – Beauty and Natural Hair

The holiday season and the end of the year already! 2019 has flown by! So, without further ado, here are the best Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2019 Beauty and Natural Hair deals. Check back often as I will update the list as I get more information. One thing this year, is that I have found that many companies have started the Black Friday savings days and weeks earlier. The retail industry seems to be extending the shopping season, so some of these deals may have been already available at the time of publishing. If you have found any great beauty or natural hair deals, especially if they are from POC owned brands, that I have missed, let me know in the comments below! Happy Shopping!!

Melanin Haircare by Naptural85. Is it as good as advertised?

You know my signature look is the twistout. It’s just so easy to do. And I love lightweight creams that give a little hold without being crunchy, especially since I don’t use hair gels. So, Whitney White aka Naptural85, an OG YouTube blogger has been working for years to create the perfect haircare products and she has come out with Melanin Haircare. I was very excited to support this black owned, woman owned brand and placed my order last October when she opened pre-sales. Fast forward to 2019 and I finally received my products. I ordered her two hair products, the The Melanin Twist-Elongating Style Cream and The Melanin Multi-Use Pure Oil Blend. There are two other products that are available, a Logo Visor and Logo Head Wrap, but I didn’t get these.

melanin haircare review 1

Melanin Haircare is a natural haircare line, specially made for people who have curly, kinky, coily natural hair. Whitney is a bit of a legend on YT, here hair is amaaaaaazing and she has been giving us her tips for healthy hair for years!

Here’s a demo of my twist and twistout.

Melanin Haircare Review – Details & Packaging – Twist-Elongating Style Cream

melanin haircare review 2

The Twist-Elongating Style Cream – a lightweight cream that is buildable and it hydrates, softens and seals in moisture onto the hair stands. It uses some of the best known natural butters in the natural hair community – shea butter, mango butter, cocoa butter (one of my faves!), kokum butter and cupuacu butter. It also contains aloe vera juice, which is well known for being very hydrating and a number of natural oils like argan, avocado and sweet almond oils, which helps adds nutrients, emolliance and makes the product spread easier. There are some naturally derived synthetic ingredients that help with the stability, emulsify and enhance the conditioning properties the product. It is an off-white creamy product that does not feel greasy. It melts into my hair quickly and can add more product if needed without weighing down my kinks or making them feel sticky.

This comes in a 16.1 fl. oz or 475ml container with a coral cover. It’s a LOT of product. I have been using this product for weeks and it looks like I have barely touched it. It can easily last 6 months or more. You can be liberal with the application, or you can share it with other family members. Whitney mentioned this in her video, that she wanted to give customers a lot of it, cuz, we typically have a lot of hair and we use a lot of product at any given time.

A product for kinky hair: Mielle Organics Pomegranate & Honey Review

Mielle Organics has been on my long list of brands that I needed to try but I never got around to it. When I heard that they were coming out with the Mielle Organics Pomegranate & Honey collection that was specially made for people with kinky hair, or who need intense hydration, I was sold! I went to my local Sally’s Beauty to take a look. By the way, this particular collection is exclusive to Sally’s and also the Mielle Organics website.

Mielle Organics has been around since 2014 and it was founded by a woman of colour who was looking for products for her natural hair with quality, wholesome ingredients. There are other lines from this brand that are great for curly hair, but this was specifically made for folks like me! I picked up two products – the Leave-In Conditioner and the Twisting Souffle. Both products conditions, hydrates and seals the hair. As far as I can tell, all the ingredients are naturally based, and most of them are organic. There are no parabens, sulphates, paraffins, mineral oil, artificial colours, DEA and it is not tested on animals.

Mielle Organics – Pomegranate & Honey Review: Some of the Science

Pomegranate is a well-known ingredient that is used in many beauty products for its anti-aging/antioxidant properties as it is a natural source of Vitamin C. The oil also contains punicic acid which helps strengthen hair follicles and encourages healthy hair growth and aids in detangling. Honey is a humectant, which means it draws water into itself and helps maintain moisture levels in hair. It is also anti-bacterial and encourages healthy follicles and hair growth.
