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.
