Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Haircare Review

I was sent over some products from the new Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Haircare Line for review, so I attempted to style my hair with them this past weekend. Key word attempted. Things did not go very well at all. Let me explain. I was sent the Jamaican Black Castor & Murumuru Oils Pure Clarifying Shampoo with ACV, Jamaican Black Castor & Murumuru Oils Ultra-Moisturizing Detangler, Scent & Shine Coconut Oil and the Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Shine & Hold Spray.

I decided to use the L.O.C. Method to apply the products- Leave-in followed by Oil, and then a styling Cream or gel. First I washed my hair with the Jamaican Black Castor & Murumu Oils Pure Clarifying Shampoo with ACV. The shampoo has a very strong perfume scent, but it suds up nicely and left my hair feeling squeaky clean. Since this is a clarifying shampoo, I followed it with a JBCO based deep contioner from another brand. I then applied the Jamaican Black Castor & Murumu Oils Ultra-Moisturizing Detangler (which had the same strong perfume scent) to detangle my hair, and as a leave-in treatment since the directions stated that it could be used as such. It provided a fair amount of slip and my hair was easy to detangle, but my hair was left feeling dry. So I added a little of my SheaMoisture JBCO Leave-In Conditioner for extra moisture. To lock in the moisture, I applied a few pumps of the Scent & Shine Coconut Oil. I was sad to see that although it’s pure coconut oil, it had fragrance added to it. Why? Coconut Oil has a pleasant enough scent on it’s own, but I digress.

I then added a little more water to my hair and a small amount of EcoStyler Olive Oil Gel to the back and sides to create brush coils, and used the gel to put finger coils on the longer parts. I allowed my hair to air dry overnight and the plan was to pull the finger coils apart and lift my roots with a pick. It was an epic fail. My hair came out extremely dry and hard, and was flaking all over the place. There was no way to save the style and I had to rinse everything out and start all over again. Maybe the products just didn’t mesh well together. I always use the L.O.C. Method with other products in similar categories and have never had my hair come out that bad. I tell you one thing though, I don’t think I’ll be going back and trying the products from the Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Haircare line again. Mind you, I didn’t even get to the Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Shine & Hold Spray. I don’t have time to be sitting for hours styling my hair to have to wash it out and start all over. I feel bad having to write this review as I was so excited for this line, but I keeps it 100 with y’all all of the time. This set of products just did not work for me.

Have you tried the Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Haircare yet?
