TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask Review, TGIN Review, Thank god its natural review, thank god i'm natural review, longing 4 length, ebony c princess

I already did a mini-review of the TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask when I compared three different conditioners to give alternatives to my favorite, Bee Mine Bee-U-ti-FuL Deep Conditioner, but this product is so amazing it definitely deserves its own discussion.

First of all, I always try to support Black owned companies whenever I can.  As shared on their website, TGIN is owned by an African American female attorney and I love when accomplished, educated women are also successful entrepreneurs!  However, I must admit, when the line first appeared on my radar, its name was Thank God I’m Natural and I had no interest in trying it, although I had already begun my transition to natural hair.  I understand that natural hair is “big business” these days so it makes sense to market towards the audience that spends the coins, but the name was so exclusionary to relaxed haired ladies that I really wasn’t interested in trying it.  Well, now the packaging reads Thank God It’s Natural and I have to wonder if its name became a marketing hurdle.

In any event, the full line is now available at my local Sally Beauty Supply store so curiosity got the best of my and I splurged a bit and am SO happy I did!!!  Let’s jump into the review…

Price: $17.99 at Sally Beauty Supply (where I purchased), $15.99 on Amazon, also available at select Target stores

Ingredients: Water, Raw Honey, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Glutamic Acid, Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, EDTA, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone

How I Use:  I apply the conditioner to freshly washed hair in sections.  It seemingly “melts” into my hair strands and I am able to completely detangle each section starting from the bottom up using my new Felicia Leatherwood Detangler Brush.  What suprised me the most is how easy it was to detangle before I had even applied any heat to aid in its penetration using my Hot Head Deep Conditioning Cap.  After sitting under heat for about twenty minutes, my hair felt like BUTTAH!   No, silky, cottony buttah!!!

Final Thoughts:  I have zero complaints whatsoever with the performance of TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask.  However, I try to use products that are as natural as possible and while this has great ingredients that are healthy for the hair, it also contains quite a few synthetic ingredients, including cones.  Also, it is a bit pricey considering the product, while thick, probably won’t last much more than four washes despite using it sparingly.  I personally think it is worth every penny, so I will be repurchasing.  Lastly, I love that it is a product I can pick up locally without having to order online.

Have you tried TGIN?  What are your favorite products of the line?

  • Haven’t tried any yet, but they’re on my list, this in particular as well as I enjoy a good DC.
    Sometimes however, for example in this instance, I think “I could just add honey and olive/jojoba oil to my existing conditioner, and get the same result, without the cost!” No? Just me? …ok…

    • I have so many products on my list to try – but my current rule is use two, buy one! I have so many products that I actually like! But this is one product line so far, I’m glad I splurged on (I have this and their leave in, love them both!). I’ve only tried raw honey once at the very start of my hair journey and honestly it was such a sticky disaster, I have never gone back! Plus…I’m lazy. I hate mixing up stuff during wash day….lol! If you do try it come back and let me know your thoughts.

  • I am all for pricey if it works. Plus, I’m trying to move to conditioners that are readily available on the ground. Cones within conditioners doesn’t seem to bother my hair nearly as much as cones in leave ins and moisturizers.

    • I’m still on the search for a staple leave-in, I can’t decide from spray/liquid versus cream. Maybe I should start paying attention to whether or not it has cones.

  • I’ve been on the fence about this conditioner since before I was natural. As you mentioned, I was a bit put off by the name while I was still relaxed. Even knowing that that nearly all of the products I used while relaxed where originally marketed for naturals, there was just something about TGIN’s name that made me feel like I couldn’t sit at their table with my relaxed hair. Your review totally makes me want to give a try though! *Adds to amazon cart asap*

    • Yes @ the lunch table comparison!!! Girl, I have to say I am super happy I bought this product. Bee Mine still has the slight edge, but I do love this deep conditioner.

  • I’ve look at this deep conditioner every time that I’m in Target but I still reach for my Jessicurl deep treatment because I know that it WORKS! Can we get a hand clap for all of these fabulous curl haired products on the ground?!? Woot!

  • Yay! So glad you finally tried it. I knew that you would love it! 🙂

    • Yes!!! Was it your blog I left a comment about wanting to try it?

      • Yep. I had posted a review on my blog. I didn’t know this but read somewhere that Thank God I’m Natural was the name of a book she’d written as a natural hair care guide. I guess she just decided to use the name for her brand. The product is amazing though. I need to restock! 🙂
