Product Review For Chinese Miracle Professional Formula Organic Olive Oil Products
The first ingredient in this product is water which is good. It is advertised as being an organic olive oil product and olive oil is forth ingredient. This product has paraben’s in it. I thought that I would give the product a try regardless of ingredients to give the product a fair go.
Ok when I wash my hair and deep condition it, as it’s thick I do this in sections. Therefore I had only applied this conditioner to one section of my hair when I realised quite quickly that this product doesn’t work for my hair at all. When I applied it to my hair, it did not absorb into my hair, I noticed that it coated it. I used this product directly after washing my hair with shampoo. I did not use a conditioner as I wanted to see if this product would detangle my hair which is the most important factor for me in any conditioning product. I realised very quickly that this product did not detangle my hair and realised that using this product alone was a mistake so I took out my Mazuri deep condition to help me to detangle the rest of my hair. When I tried to wash the conditioner out, it was very hard. My hair felt as though it was covered in Vaseline. I even found it difficult to wash my hands after as they also felt as though they had been covered in Vaseline so I had to use additional soap and hot water to get the product off which I would never expect when using a deep conditioner. My sink was also covered with thick fuzzy blobs of green residue which didn’t look too attractive.
Therefore in conclusion, I would not purchase, neither would I buy a product like this again as it just did not work for me at all.
PVP/VA Copolymer is the second ingredient.
What is PVP/VA Copolymer?
PVP/VA Copolymer is a water-soluble fixative used in hairsprays.
Is PVP/VA Copolymer any good for our hair?
A petroleum-derived chemical used in hairsprays, wavesets and other cosmetics. It can be considered toxic, since particles may contribute to foreign bodies in the lungs of sensitive persons.
Both products also contain Parabens (I will discuss this in my next blog).
Does the product mix?
I applied this gel to my wet hair and it did not make my curls pop. The gel does not claim to be a curl activator however. I used this gel on my dry hair and when used alone it made my hair feel crunchy. It is a product that you would have to mix with an oil, however it did not give my hair enough hold. It is quite a light gel and not heavy enough for my hair texture. Maybe it will work better for a thinner hair type. I could not use this product for a braid out.
Unfortunately these products did not work for me.
I definately have some more positive things to say about products that I am about to review in the very near future so this is not the end!! :)
