Mahogany Roots Hair Products

Mahogany Roots

This is the latest of my hair product discoveries. I purchased the Vanilla Brown Sugar Loc Butter (for two-strand twisting), and the Olive and Avocado Moisturizing Hair Butter. I was given a complimentary jar of the Jasmine Peach Pomade and a bottle of the Essential Hair Oil to try. Check out the site, for a full ingredient list. The company believes in honest ingredient disclosure. The owner, LaTronda Lumpkins is SUPER NICE!

Here's what the packaging looks like. I used my Blackberry camera. I'll take a few more shots, so you can see the consistency of the pomade and butters. The labels are waterproof.

I haven't really used these products yet. This is more of an intro to the line, and a brief, first impression. I'm going to use the Loc Butter next wash day.

Olive and Avocado Moisturizing Hair Butter
This is not a true "butter", it's more of a buttery lotion. It moves in the jar. I can't really describe the smell. It's like a floral/fruity smell. It's not light, but it doesn't bother me.

Initial impressions? I worked some into my twists, to see how it worked as a basic moisturizer on dry hair. It passed. My hair drank it up and was immediately soft.

Jasmine Peach Pomade
If first impressions end up to be right about this line, this will be at the top of my list. Nothing like a good pomade, and this one is good. It's not vegan...there's lanolin in it (I like lanolin), but it's not at the top. It's not sticky or heavy. I used a bit on top of the OAMHB, and my twists feel like crushed velvet. It smells like peaches, but soft and understated. Not cloying. Love the smell. It has an "earthy" bottom note.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Loc Butter
Smells like a Chai Latte. I haven't used it yet, but I love the smell. I think the texture is very similar to the Zuresh butter for locs and twists. Looking forward to trying this. It contains lanolin and beeswax.

Essential Hair Oil
This is a spray oil. It smells like some kind of tropical, floral...something. It smells like the Olive and Avocado Butter. It's strong, so scent sensitive folks beware. I would use this as a hair perfume/oil mist, after misting with a bit of water.

    Im really loving the Peach Pomade, Pikaki Pomade and the Olive and Avocado Moisturizing Hair Butter

    :confused1: I went to place an order and it is charging me tax...its a none issue but that isn't accurate, they are located in CA.

    Email her, and tell her...that's what I did. She compensated me...ask her for a sample pack. Not sure how long she'll keep doing that. Hopefully, she'll correct that tax issue.

    I will email her because the site was trying to charge me tax and I live in a state with ZERO sales tax. I just didn't want to be bothered at the time to contact them at the time...

    This Vanilla Brown Sugar Loc Butter is RIDICULOUS!
    :cheers:

    For the "heavy handed"...beware! You only need a small, smidgen of a bit, per section of hair. When you apply it, starting at the root, it works in all the hair (even those short, broken strands at the root) with ZERO frizz, and produces a fat, FIRM, crazy soft twist. No greasiness. No stickiness.

    If you apply too much, you'll end up with a greasy, weighed down mess.

    Oh...and it smells like a Starbuck's Chai Latte.

    Ah...to be a well pampered pootiecat. I can sleep on my owner's lap. Roll over on my back when I want my stomach rubbed. Purr with delight. Suddenly jump off and walk away for no reason. Not respond when I am called. Throw my leg up and lick with intense abandon. Sleep 85% of the time. Hang my head off the couch and view the world upside down.:laughing5:

    I hate to be a wet blanket but I think her shampoos and conditioners are bases. I've seen these ingredients before...somewhere....if I'm wrong, stand corrected.

    Okay...is that an issue?

    For some it could be.

    Then, they'll figure it out and decide. I guess I keep wondering why, "You know she uses bases" type issues keep coming up with these companies. Bases aren't bad, and if you've ever made liquid soap/shampoo from scratch (I have...I'm a soapmaker), it's not quick and simple. If I were selling products, I'd use bases for shampoos/conditioners too. It's less work, you can add to to it, and it does the job.

    As long as she isn't deceiving anyone, I don't see why it would be an issue. I don't get the "wet blanket" part.

    Ok let's nip this in the bud. I will delete the comment and you can delete your comments, if you choose so that we can move on from this. My intention was not to offend but obviously I did. I apologize.

    You don't have to delete anything. I wasn't offended, and there's no need to apologize. I asked you why was the fact that she may use bases an issue? You said, "For some it would be". Okay, hopefully people who don't wanna use products made with bases would do their own research and decide if they wanted to purchase.

    She does not have to state, "I use bases", as long as she does NOT state that she doesn't use them (if she does), or tries to mislead. There's nothing on her site that leads me to believe she desires to mislead.

    You were the one who said, "I hate to be a wet blanket", so I'm assuming you thought ahead of time that your comment might be interpreted that way.

    I didn't know she (if this is MK from YouTube) had a line out either. I will definitely have to give this a try.

    What does bases mean? I could do a search but I'm not even sure what to put in the search.

    Sorry for the blur on a few of the pics. There's a max of five (5) attachments allowed. Also, when I got the Olive Avocado Butter in the summer, it was a lotion consistency. The cool weather thickened it.
