You will find an introduction to Alma Legend in my previous post. I have been using these products for a while now and I am totally loving the results. In addition to reviewing the products, I will also let you guys in on my simple wash day routine. Let’s get started
I always try to do a pre poo treatment, especially when its shampoo day. I started with my jbco mix as a hot oil treatment then proceeded to shampoo with the Alma Legend Oil Refill Wash 3 in 1 Shampoo. It claims to neutralize, cleanse and re fill hair. Apart from smelling amazing (all the products do) and looking like mango juice (which I love lol) it works really well. It lathers easily (it contains sulfates) but it really makes my hair soft. I feel like I could get away without using a conditioner afterwards.
I wash my hair in 6-8 sections. On the first wash, I concentrate the shampoo on the scalp only, using gentle pressure and circular motions then rinse. On the second wash, I apply the shampoo on my scalp again and use the foam to wash each individual section and re twist. I always wash and keep my hair in twists- this prevents excessive matting and tangling!
Following shampoo, I go straight to deep conditioning. The Alma Legend Replenishing Mask has a medium thick consistency. It makes my hair really soft, like butter almost lol. It hasn’t got a lot of slip so I did have to use a bit to make sure I could detangle easily and pass the comb through the hair. I really like this mask, my only issue is the size, its only 250ml!
Then after deep conditioning and rinsing out, I will then do an ACV rinse (sometimes) then let my hair rest for a bit before adding my leave in and oils. Then I will either thread or flat twist my hair to stretch it out for the coming week
During the week, I swapped my usual jbco scalp oil for the Alma Legend Billion Hair Potion. It claims to help hair look fuller and feel thicker. It says it’s a serum but it looks watery to me (what’s a serum consistency like? Lol) I haven’t noticed any results yet, I only started using this one but I will come back for a full review after I finish the bottle. I will also bring you a review of the hair lotion then
Verdict- I love the range! Everything smells great and I am such a huge fan of nice smelling products (who isn’t) I think the range is aimed at relaxed hair so the full collection has a relaxer but it doesn’t mean naturals can’t use other products. I have thick 4c hair and it loved it! I will definitely recommend it.
