When it comes to natural hair care products, sometimes you need a little bit more pizazz to liven up your curls. Miche Beauty (pronounced “mee-sh””> was founded in 2016 by a married couple named Michelle and Jonathan Ballard who were passionate about creating products for all textures. Their philosophy lies in creating a simple handcrafted collection that uses nutrient rich and natural ingredients like rosemary, lemongrass, and ginger to tackle the most common natural hair issues. Since their 2016 debut they have grown their business to feature an array of stylers, conditioners, full collections, and accessories to help naturalistas every step of the way in their journey. They pride themselves on being a clean, simple, and non-toxic hair product solution for various hair types and textures. Customers can take a customer hair quiz to help determine the best Miche products for their hair and build out their ideal hair regime.
Summer is here and to say my curls need hydration is an understatement. I’m experiencing most of my curls problems finding a good cocktail to get my curls defined and hold up in the heat. Between working out, sweating, and color damage, having products that can help me maintain longevity with my wash and go is my ultimate dream. Miche Beauty’s collection offers a variety of options to help detox my scalp and provide hydration with very simple ingredients.
I had the pleasure to try out a few of their products primarily from their “Style and Define Collection” which aims to help with definition and moisture.
- Detox Clarifying & Detoxifying Shampoo
- Sculpt Curl Defining Gel
- Set Curl Defining Mousse
- Bounce Curl Defining Cream
- Boost Hydrating Leave-in & Refresher Spray
First I started with the Detox Clarifying and Detoxifying Shampoo that helps to remove buildup, residue and features ingredients like apple cider vinegar and peppermint oil. I liked the applicator tip that made it easy to apply onto my scalp. It had a very light fragrance and there wasn’t a distinct smell that stood out. While it had a great lather, I can’t say it felt extremely cleansing or clarifying on my scalp, but it did easily wash out void of stripping my hair.
Next was the Lavish Leave-in Conditioner which was amazing. It felt nourishing, hydrating, and worked very easily into my curls. I liked the creamy texture and light fragrance that complemented the cleanser well. I could instantly see my curl definition enhancing and forming as I brushed the product through my hair. It did a great job of eliminating any knots and tangles and left my hair very soft. The ingredients include lavender flower extract, avocado oil, castor oil, and chamomile.
Last but not least I finished my wash and go with the Sculpt Curl Defining Gel. This gel stood out in texture, consistency, and smell because it wasn’t sticky and provided a lot of shine.It is very thick but applied smoothly and didn’t weigh down my curls. Consistency wise it had a good balance of hold and slip so I could tell it was going to be hydrating to my curls and not drying. In the morning I was very happy with my overall definition and that there wasn’t any crunch with the gel.
After a few days I tried the Boost Hydrating Curl Refresher and Leave- In Spray to revive my curls and finish with the Set Curl Defining Mousse. Both were amazing products that were able to give me additional curl, definition, and provide some extra shelf life for my wash and go to get me through the week. The spray was lightweight and made my hair easy to style and comb since it had been a little dry. The mousse was excellent for providing additional definition and making my curls define without feeling weighed down.
While the cleanser wasn’t my favorite, these products were excellent and a standout for my wash and go routine. I love their lightweight formula, minimal scent, and big results that didn’t leave my hair sticky, crunchy, or weighed down. Each product built into the other seamlessly and really complimented each other. For the summer I would definitely recommend the Mousse since it provides a great blend of volume and hydration.
