Wash Day Ft Dark and Lovely Alma Legend

Dark and Lovely Alma Legend Collection

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.

After shampooing












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

I totally didn’t plan to match my nails to my hair products lol!

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.

Hey family! I hope everyone is doing great. So I have been working hard searching for the best UK based brands for you and voila, I came across Curl Harmony!

Curl Harmony is a UK based natural hair company that produces products free from harmful chemicals e.g. sulphates, silicones and petrochemicals.  All products are made with natural or naturally derived ingredients with minimum amounts of fragrance oils.

In simpler terms, the products have been formulated using luxurious natural ingredients to suit every curly girl’s needs! I’m talking to my type 4 sistas and type 2 a/b/z (lool I don’t think there is a type 2z…. yet…)

So it’s a good collection featuring all the essentials: a cleanser, deep conditioner and a leave in conditioner! The full product list is as follows:

  1. Curl Cleanser
  2. Smoothing conditioner
  3. Leave in conditioner
  4. Intensive repair deep conditioner
  5. Buttercream
  6. Curl reviver

Since you guys don’t mind not having pictures of every single product (thank God lol), I will be doing these collections without them, Lord knows I am running out of storage on my WordPress account lool.

Review time!



So I have been speaking to the lovely Nadine, the owner of Curl Harmony who sent me some products to review! I got the


  • Leave in conditioner
  • Deep treatment mask
  • Buttercream

So you guys are in for a first impressions/ full review from me! I’m sorry I can’t try all the products I feature in this series lol (I’m only human with a limited amount of space and one head of hair lool, but remember this series is to bring you information on the brands out there for us and where to purchase them in the UK, if I happen to use it of course I will add a personal review for you guys J)

So look out for more information about these products soon, wash day is close by! Lool. Here in the UK you can get the full product range on their website > http://www.curlharmony.co.uk?tap_a=3216-11cfd5&tap_s=4594-418706

That’s all folks. I am really happy you guys are enjoying this series. I have loads more to come. I have realised in doing this series that, there are a lot of companies that now have a natural hair product collection from just catering to relaxed girls previously. Obviously the quality of these are yet to be determined by us. There are also a LOT of natural hair companies that offer great products. There are also UK based companies with really great products waiting to be discovered by us. (Did I just get deep there? Lool)

So until next time (off I go to enjoy my curl harmony products and my days off lol)
