The Mane Choice London Takeover Party / Product Review

I’m on a quest to grow thicker, healthier and longer hair.  So while I was on Instagram I stumbled on @themanechoice.  The US brand has created a huge buzz online with customers and celebrities sharing their hair growth and testimonials.

 

Who Is The Mane Choice?

Founder and CEO of The Mane Choice, Courtney Adeleye built her hair empire from the ground up by incorporating her specialized knowledge base with her own curiosity.

Taking to YouTube to document her healthy hair journey, Courtney’s personal healthy hair care journey became her calling, as her viewers watched her amazing progress and yearned for her self-discovered help with their own tresses.

Courtney’s unique healthy product mixes intrigued viewers and quickly garnered her a large following. Her science-based background helped her identify what products and ingredients would render the best results.

Realizing that her passion for health as a Bachelor’s Degree Registered Nurse and unique medical knowledge filled a gap in the hair care community, she decided to go all in with product production, and The Mane Choice Hair Solution was born. Courtney continued the business from her kitchen for one year until the demand for her natural hair care products expanded the business.

With the focus always on health, Courtney and her husband who is a Medical Doctor constantly strives to make sure each product she offers serves a dual purpose — beautifying while improving health — and working from the inside out. Everything she makes is good for the body and for the hair.

 

The Mane Choice Takeover Party came to London back in May and was held at Glaziers Hall, London Bridge.  The event was sponsored by Beauty By Zara.

I had the pleasure of working alongside the Beauty By Zara team during the event.  It was a great opportunity to learn about the brand, meet The Mane Choice founder and her team, network with bloggers and press etc.

Those who attended the event also got the chance to purchase some of the products at a special price on the day.

The venue was lovely and guests were treated to lovely canapes and drinks.

There was also a Q&A session with Courtney.  She’s a really warm and friendly lady!

I’ve been trying out a few products from their collection.  First of all I love the purple packaging!  The products contain No Mineral Oil, No Petrolatum, No Parabens, No Sulfates, No Formaldehydes.

 

Easy On The CURLS Detangling Hydration Shampoo is a revolutionary product for curly hair. No more dreading wash days. Our advanced shampoo cuts your wash days in half. You can finally look forward to washing buildup and impurities out of your hair without the knots and tangles. Infused with Biotin and Vitamin E to nourish, grow and hydrate your hair. Easy On The CURLS leaves the hair feeling soft and shiny, while eliminating the dry and stripped feeling. A clean scalp and clean hair is essential to the perfect healthy hair growth regimen.

I’ve tried so many sulphate-free shampoos and it’s always hit or miss for me.  Most shampoos leave my hair stripped and detangling can be a pain!

This one is definitely a big hit!  You only need a small amount, it lathers well and smells amazing.  I was able to detangle my hair while shampooing which doesn’t normally happen.  After rinsing, my scalp was nice and clean and my hair felt soft and tangle free. 

 

Easy On The CURLS Detangling Hydration Conditioner makes wash days for curly hair a breeze. No more dreading wash days. Our cutting-edge conditioner cuts your wash days in half. The detangling process just got MUCH easier! Infused with Biotin and Vitamin E to nourish, grow and hydrate your hair. Easy On The CURLS leaves the hair feeling soft and shiny, while eliminating the dry and stripped feeling. Clean and conditioned hair is essential to the perfect healthy hair growth regimen.

After shampooing, my hair was soft and tangle free.  I divided my hair into 4 sections and applied the conditioner to each section from root to tip.

Whenever I apply a conditioner my preference is to finger detangle.  But I’ve found not every conditioner enables me to do that.  I’m usually heavy-handed with my conditioner and I quickly learned I don’t need much! This conditioner has so much slip and my hair literally glides through my fingers.

I left it in for 5 minutes and after rinsing my hair felt super soft and hydrated.

Soft As Can Be name says it all. A 3-in-1 conditioner formulated to revitalize and refresh the hair instantly. An advanced conditioner that can be used as a Co-Wash, Leave In, and Detangler. Adds shine, softness and manageability. Stops breakage during the detangling process. Leaves the hair softer and more elastic.

The nutrient contents of this conditioner makes the hair less dry and less prone to breakage by allowing the hair to hold in more moisture for longer periods of time. When used a Co-Wash this unique formula gently rinses away impurities and product build up. Infused with Biotin and Tea Tree to promote growth and retention.

I love multi-purpose products and this is a great 3-in-1.  I did use this 3 ways, however I prefer to use this as a leave-in mainly due to its size.  I like to use a cheaper conditioner as my co-wash.

As a leave-in this product is light, doesn’t weigh my hair down and has great slip.  It makes my hair feel like butter, super soft and frizz free.

The mane choice Green tea & carrot mask treatmentGreen Tea & Carrot Deep Strengthening & Restore Mask Treatment is a healthy hair essential. Formulated to penetrate the hair shaft and infuse your hair with high-quality vitamins and nutrients to transform your hair into its most optimal and healthiest state. Enriched with biotin, green tea, and carrot oil, this product will immediately begin to repair and restore dry and damaged strands.

I regularly deep condition my hair once a week, it’s the most important and favourite step of my hair regimen.  

I like the consistency, it has good slip and glides through my hair easily.  I like to cover my hair with a shower cap and leave it in for 30-45 minutes or sit under my steamer for 15 minutes.

After rinsing my hair feels stronger and intensely moisturised.

Wow! my hair is in love with this deep conditioner…it is one of the best deep conditioners I’ve used.  It works well for all hair types…natural, relaxed, permed and colored treated.

 

img_0713Multi-Vitamin Scalp Nourishing Growth Oil is a natural growth stimulating oil made exclusively for the scalp. Formulated to deeply penetrate the scalp and stimulate slow and inactive hair follicles. Our growth oil is potent yet gentle enough to be used daily or as often as needed to transform your hair into a much healthier, longer and thicker state.

I really like this oil.  It is light and packed full of oils and essential oils that help keep the scalp healthy and encourage new growth.    After using this for a few months I’ve noticed new growth especially on my edges.

Crystal Orchid is a one of a kind biotin infused styling gel. Finally, a gel that specializes in keeping your hair healthy while delivering an amazing hold at the same time. Loaded with essential vitamins and nutritive ingredients, Crystal Orchid is sure to aide in your healthy hair growth regimen.

l’m not a wash and go kinda girl so I rarely use gel.  I sectioned my hair and applied the gel to clean damp hair from root to tip, raking and smoothing each section with my fingers.  You don’t need a lot of this product…no heavy-handedness required!
 
It is light and helped define my curls and tame frizz.  My hair didn’t feel coated and most importantly it doesn’t cause any white flakes or leave any build up which I hate.
 
It also provides a long lasting hold without making my hair feel dry or crunchy.  My hair still felt soft and moisturised.  You can also use it to smooth your edges.  It has a lovely uplifting scent.  Definitely a winner for me!

 

img_0718Manetabolism Plus is a daily complete dietary supplement formulated to grow hair on the scalp longer, thicker, faster and healthier.

Our proprietary blend is what truly makes Manetabolism Plus unique and gives us the ability to regrow hair follicles in inactive areas of the scalp. Manetabolism Plus works to nourish hair follicles, prevent hair loss, remove scalp toxins and speed up hair growth. They also work to improve the overall health of the hair and prevent breakage. Our vitamin stimulates the circulation on the scalp, thus improving the overall hair quality.

  • Grows hair longer, thicker, and healthier at an accelerated speed the healthy way.
  • Has the ability to rejuvenate dead follicles, inactive follicles and slow growing follicles.
  • Improves dietary nutrition and helps to support the overall health in the body.

I only took these for a month so I can’t really comment on long-term results.  What I did notice is I had less breakage and my hair was thicker.  I didn’t get any breakouts which most people associate with taking biotin rich supplements.  I will try the 4 month supply next as it’s more cost effective too.

 

I’m really happy I got to try The Mane Choice, these products are now my new love.  With consistent use I have less breakage, my hair looks healthier and retains more moisture.

I hope you enjoyed this post.  Thanks for reading.
