TreasureTress Length Check with Mielle Organics Mongongo Oil Collection

I’ve mentioned the TreasureTress subscription box a few times on the blog.

TreasureTress is a UK monthly product discovery box for young girls and women with natural, kinky, curly and coily hair.

The box costs £20 a month and you have 3 options:

  • Mini-me box – recommended ages 2-9yrs
  • Tween box – recommended ages 10-17Yrs
  • Qween box – 18+

 

I’m not currently subscribed but I always keep my eye out for their one-off boxes.

So back in September their Qween box was another Mielle Organics Takeover which I was excited to see as I’m a huge fan of the brand.

 

 

You can check out my previous posts Review – Mielle Organics and Treasure Tress September Box – Mielle Organics Takeover

So after eyeing the box for a week, thankfully they decided to make the boxes available as a one-off purchase for £25.

I did the math and this box is worth around £70 which is a MEGA BARGAIN!!!!

I quickly jumped online and ordered 2 boxes (hey I wasn’t about to miss out on a bargain) and soon afterwards they literally sold out!

I like to use pre-poo treatments to prep my hair for shampoo.  This one has a liquid consistency and a lovely minty scent.  I divide my hair into four sections, apply the pre-poo treatment directly on the scalp and hair and gently massage. Then I cover my hair with a shower cap for 15 minutes.  I personally think this product would be easier to use in a spray bottle rather than a tube.

I sectioned my hair and applied the conditioner.  It didn’t have as much slip as I would have liked but I was able to finger detangle with ease.

I sat under my steamer for 15 minutes and then rinsed.
My hair was super soft and hydrated but I didn’t like the way my hair felt, it felt like there was a film left on my hair, like when I use a product with silicones.  I can’t see any silicones in the ingredients however.  I really wanted to love this conditioner, it was just ok for me, nothing special so I will be sticking to my staple Babassu deep conditioner.

I tend to heat style my hair just twice a year.  I’ve had heat damage in the past so I’m always extra cautious.  Anyway my hair was due for a trim and it’s easier for me to do this when my hair is stretched.

So this product has ‘silicones’ and the only time I’m fine with using them is to protect my hair when I’m applying direct heat.

I applied it to my hair in sections and detangled before using my blow dryer.  It doesn’t leave my hair feeling sticky or weighed down which is great.

Overall I’m pleased with this collection and my hair results.
