Many of you may have walked down the aisle at Walmart and noticed a new product line in the ethnic hair care section. I recently had the opportunity of trying the entire Eden Bodyworks Jojoba and Minoi line. I also had the pleasure of hearing a presentation from Dr. Kari Williams a trichologist and natural hair expert who is the spokesperson for the line. I would like to share with you her tips on the benefits of the product along with my personal experience and results in using it.
What’s in a name?The Jojaba and Monoi line is designed to infuse strength into the hair. Jojaba oil is a liquid wax derived from the seed of a plant that is indigenous to the southwestern United States and to Mexico. It works great as a moisturizer and is similar to the sebum the our scalp naturally secretes. Now we add in the Monoi which is Dr. Kari explains, is an emollient that smoothes and hydrates the hair and seals in moisture.
JOJOBA MONOI Revitalizing ConditionerDr. Kari recommended that we use the conditioner as a pre-shampoo (pre-poo) agent. I had great results using this method. I was able to smooth out the hair and dry detangle with very little breakage and knotting.
JOJOBA MONOI Moisturizing Shampoo I hate when a shampoo leaves my hair squeaky clean. That tells me that my hair has been stripped of moisture. And you know what? I did not have that problem with this shampoo. My hair still felt smooth and soft.
JOJOBA MONOI Deep ConditionerI really enjoyed the deep conditioner. I left it in for the recommend time and let the steam from the shower infuse the product into the hair. My hair felt very soft and manageable.
JOJOBA MONOI Hair Milk Great styling aid to restore life to dry hair. It instantly softens the hair and does not evaporate as quickly as other hair milks. Dr. Kari also recommended using the hair milk for twistouts. My twistout turned out really nice. Obviously, a milk is not going to last a long as a pudding or gel the next day. But, it works great if you want something light that is not going to cause a lot of build-up.
