Palmer’s Natural Fusions Mallow Root Leave in Conditioner Review

Palmer’s has been one of my favourite drugstore brands for many years. I love both the bodycare and haircare collections which are affordable and easily accessible.

Palmer’s Natural Fusion range was launched this year and is a 5 product strong collection that harnesses natural ingredients for stronger healthier hair. I was gifted the collection a few months back but I have only managed to use two of the items. This post is a full review of the Mallow Root Leave-in conditioner.

The Mallow Root leave-in conditioner promises slip for easy detangling leaving the hair shiny and moisturised. It comes in a spray bottle

Experience

I am currently on my 2nd bottle of this leave-in with 4 more as backup: this tells you how much I love the product. The conditioner sprays in a very fine mist and has a pleasant scent. I use this conditioner on wash days, immediately after rinsing out my deep conditioner on soaking wet hair but I also use it throughout the week to hydrate and soften my hair.

I have natural 4c hair which is prone to dryness, what I really like about this leave-in is that it actually hydrates and softens the hair, I can see and feel a difference. I don’t usually use my leave-ins for detangling, I prefer to detangle with my conditioner so I can’t comment on the detangling claims of the product. This leave-in also works well for Brazilian hair as a leave-in conditioner. I also generously mist on soaking wet wigs after washing and they dry very soft with a lovely lustre.

Verdict

This is one of the best spray leave-in conditioners I have used in a very long time. I am halfway through my 2nd bottle and I have been lucky to go to events and have been gifted more, I have 4 more backups. This works so well for my natural 4c hair and it’s super easy to use. It doesn’t weigh the hair down so I am confident it will work for all hair types.

I will recommend and will purchase.

The Best Leave In Conditioners for Dry Natural Hair

In my protective styling and winter care post, I spoke about how the winter takes a toll on our fro. The elements play a huge part on the moisture levels in our hair so it is essential you do everything you can to maintain it. Why? Dry hair leads to shedding/ breakage which isn’t a sign of healthy hair.

LOC, LCO or LOCO?-Liquid Oil Cream

Whether you rock your braid outs or a wig this season, proper moisturising will ensure your hair is as soft as it can be. Following the LOC method or any of its variations (depending on your hair texture) will lock in optimum moisture and ensure its looking its best.

The LOC method allows you to layer different types of products for max moisture. It’s good to experiment with the order in which you layer your products to know which works best for your hair. For instance, for my 4c hair, I do LCO because I found that order works best for my hair.

I know. I know you think SM products are super hyped up products but it’s for a good reason. The SM jbco leave in conditioner leaves your hair silky and soft and it’s actually one of the leave-ins I use without following it up with an oil. My full review is here

I was sent and have been using 2 of the Curls Unleashed leave in conditioners and I can finally bring you a review! At first I was confused as to why they have two different ones: won’t they work the same? But after using them for some time, I have been able to notice a difference between the two. The product’s I will be talking about are the

Curls Unleashed Cocoa Butter & Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Crème

use

This comes in a tub and it’s described as an extra rich hair softener and moisturiser. It also claims to moisturise, define and elongate natural hair (when used in conjunction with other products from the Curls Unleashed range).

Experience

Tbh I didn’t like this leave in the 1st few times I used it and I realised it was because I was using it wrong. They recommend you use it on damp hair however I was using it on soaking wet hair. This made my hair dry the next day, almost like I didn’t apply any leave in conditioner! I completely wrote it off because of this. It wasn’t until I decided to compare it to the other leave in that I started to use it differently.

I now apply it on damp hair or towel dried hair and it works really well to moisturise my hair! I apply a good amount and it is easily absorbed into the hair and smells quite nice. The texture/consistency is thicker than the other leave in. After using it on damp hair, I really like it! My hair doesn’t feel dry the next morning but soft and well moisturised. The scent lingers after the hair is dried.

Curls Unleashed Shea Butter & Mango Leave In Conditioner

20160517_222832

This one comes in a bottle and described as a hair softener and moisturiser. The texture/consistency of this is much lighter, almost like a lotion. It smells AMAZING! I use this on damp hair and it easily absorbs into the hair! My hair feels very soft and stays soft!

I loved this one from the very 1st use! The smell and how light it is.

Difference – I noticed my hair was a little bit softer after using the Shea Butter & Mango (lotion). It’s also lighter on my hair.

If you have extra dry hair, I recommend the extra rich leave in which is ‘heavier’ and would probably work better for you than the lotion leave in. Tbh honest both are great, just make sure you use it on damp hair lol.

Both products are sulfates and parabens free.
