Smile Mahogany Roots Hair Products

Mahogany Roots

This is the latest of my hair product discoveries. I purchased the Vanilla Brown Sugar Loc Butter (for two-strand twisting), and the Olive and Avocado Moisturizing Hair Butter. I was given a complimentary jar of the Jasmine Peach Pomade and a bottle of the Essential Hair Oil to try. Check out the site, for a full ingredient list. The company believes in honest ingredient disclosure. The owner, LaTronda Lumpkins is SUPER NICE!

Here's what the packaging looks like. I used my Blackberry camera. I'll take a few more shots, so you can see the consistency of the pomade and butters. The labels are waterproof.



I haven't really used these products yet. This is more of an intro to the line, and a brief, first impression. I'm going to use the Loc Butter next wash day.

Olive and Avocado Moisturizing Hair Butter
This is not a true "butter", it's more of a buttery lotion. It moves in the jar. I can't really describe the smell. It's like a floral/fruity smell. It's not light, but it doesn't bother me.

Initial impressions? I worked some into my twists, to see how it worked as a basic moisturizer on dry hair. It passed. My hair drank it up and was immediately soft.

Jasmine Peach Pomade
If first impressions end up to be right about this line, this will be at the top of my list. Nothing like a good pomade, and this one is good. It's not vegan...there's lanolin in it (I like lanolin), but it's not at the top. It's not sticky or heavy. I used a bit on top of the OAMHB, and my twists feel like crushed velvet. It smells like peaches, but soft and understated. Not cloying. Love the smell. It has an "earthy" bottom note.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Loc Butter
Smells like a Chai Latte. I haven't used it yet, but I love the smell. I think the texture is very similar to the Zuresh butter for locs and twists. Looking forward to trying this. It contains lanolin and beeswax.

Essential Hair Oil
This is a spray oil. It smells like some kind of tropical, floral...something. It smells like the Olive and Avocado Butter. It's strong, so scent sensitive folks beware. I would use this as a hair perfume/oil mist, after misting with a bit of water.

Email her, and tell her...that's what I did. She compensated me...ask her for a sample pack. Not sure how long she'll keep doing that. Hopefully, she'll correct that tax issue.

I will email her because the site was trying to charge me tax and I live in a state with ZERO sales tax. I just didn't want to be bothered at the time to contact them at the time...

This Vanilla Brown Sugar Loc Butter is RIDICULOUS!


For the "heavy handed"...beware! You only need a small, smidgen of a bit, per section of hair. When you apply it, starting at the root, it works in all the hair (even those short, broken strands at the root) with ZERO frizz, and produces a fat, FIRM, crazy soft twist. No greasiness. No stickiness.

If you apply too much, you'll end up with a greasy, weighed down mess.

Oh...and it smells like a Starbuck's Chai Latte.

For some it could be.
Then, they'll figure it out and decide. I guess I keep wondering why, "You know she uses bases" type issues keep coming up with these companies. Bases aren't bad, and if you've ever made liquid soap/shampoo from scratch (I have...I'm a soapmaker), it's not quick and simple. If I were selling products, I'd use bases for shampoos/conditioners too. It's less work, you can add to to it, and it does the job.

As long as she isn't deceiving anyone, I don't see why it would be an issue. I don't get the "wet blanket" part.

Ok let's nip this in the bud. I will delete the comment and you can delete your comments, if you choose so that we can move on from this. My intention was not to offend but obviously I did. I apologize.
