Review
I was highly disappointed in this product. It did not clean my hair at all! The cleansing abilities was my main concern initially as there isn’t a main cleansing agent in the Honey Dew Berry Conditioning Cleanser. The cleanser has a light-weight and runny consistency and the smell gave me a slight headache. As I was washing my hair, I found myself using quite a bit more product than I normally do for cowashing and ended up using half of the bottle. In my opinion, the formula may be a bit to thin to work as a cleansing conditioner as the creator of the line used almost the entire bottle herself in this product’s demo video. To only get 1-2 uses of a product for $14 isn’t economical or smart, especially for a product that doesn’t work.

Though this product wasn’t cleansing it had a decent amount of slip. It aided in detangling my hair a bit which made me think that this product would be more suitable as a rinse out conditioner than a cleanser. I have been co-washing my hair as a shampoo replacement close to a year now with great results and I don’t use heavy products which would have inhibited this product from working effectively. To properly cleanse my hair, I used the As I Am Coconut Co-Wash which cleansed all of the oils and debris from my hair.

Babassu Oil and Mint Deep Conditioning Protein/Moisture Replenisher
Rating: 5 out of 5
Retail Price: $14.99 for 8 oz. | Curl Kitchen: $15.99
pH: 5.5

Description
Our new Babassu Oil and Mint Deep Conditioning Protein/Moisture Replenisher will restore dry and damaged hair. This native Amazonian palm fruit is high in sterols and tocopherols which are healthy for the hair and scalp. Enriched with fatty acids that provide a rich softness to the hair. Derived from natural oils and cetearyl alcohol which helps reduce frizz and fly-aways. This deep conditioner is filled with two complex amino acids from wheat, soy and other natural sources that actually mimic the function of hair amino acids helping to restore the function and moisture to damaged and dry hair.

Ingredients
water/aqua/eau, behentrimonium methosulfate, cetearyl alcohol, cetyl babassuate, chitosan succinamide, wheat amino acids, soy amino acids, arginine, serine, threonine, sodium PCA, sodium lactate, arginine, aspartic acid, PCA, Glycine, alanine, serine, valine, proline, theronine, isoleucine, histidine, phenylalanine, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, dehydroacetic acid, benzyl alcohol, essential oil blend

Review
The Babassu Oil and Mint Deep Conditioning Protein/Moisture Replenisher is BAE! This product definitely made up for the cleanser. Initially, the smell of the conditioner was a bit strong, but it grew on me and I love it! The smell is minty (not peppermint, more herbal) and the consistency is creamy. The conditioner just melted into my hair and my scalp loved the stimulating effects. Another great thing about this deep conditioner is that you don’t need a dryer or steamer for it to work. After letting it sit for 15 minutes under a shower cap, the conditioner penetrated and left my hair soft!

This deep conditioner was more moisturizing than strengthening for my hair. I didn’t have to use a lot and I think that I can get 5-6 more uses out of it. It was also detangling, but I would suggest detangling your hair when you first put the product in your hair opposed to doing it after the 15 minute session for more slip.

Organic White Peony Ultra Moisturizing Leave in Conditioner
Rating: 2 out of 5
Retail Price: $15.99 for 8 oz. | Curl Kitchen: $16.99
pH: 5.0

Description
The Ultra moisturizing Leave in conditioner, very light weight but packed with moisturizing ingredients to give your hair the moisture and protection it needs. Made with botanical extracts and certified organic ingredients. Seals in moisture, smooths the cuticles, tames frizz and flyaways, and protects from heat damage.

Ingredients
water/aqua/eau, behentrimonium methosulfate, cetearyl alcohol, cetyl babassuate, chitosan succinamide, wheat amino acids, soy amino acids, arginine, serine, threonine, sodium PCA, sodium lactate, arginine, aspartic acid, PCA, Glycine, alanine, serine, valine, proline, theronine, isoleucine, histidine, phenylalanine, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, dehydroacetic acid, benzyl alcohol, essential oil blend

Review
I really loved how light-weight this formula was but as leave-in conditioner it was just BLAH for me. However, it worked really great as a moisturizer and style refresher. I like for my leave-in conditioners to have slip and tame frizz, but this product didn’t have that for me. The smell is nice and lingers for days which I love most about this product. But for $16, this product was just mediocre.


Conclusion
Overall Rating: 3 out of 5
Of course the only product that I liked from these three was the Babassu Oil and Mint Deep Conditioning Protein/Moisture Replenisher. I will definitely purchase that again. The other products were ineffective but I was more upset about the price. Usually product lines that are highly priced tend to work relatively better than more affordably priced products. In this case that is a huge misconception. Though the line is mostly natural and contains organic ingredients, the $50+ price tag was definitely not worth it. You can learn more about Mielle Organics™ on their website.

    I’ve been wanting to try their products so thank you for the review. It looks like I’ll just be picking up the DC which is fine because I love a good DC. Spray leave-ins are kind of pointless because how can you really coat your whole heal of hair with a spray bottle but companies keep trying…

  2. La'Trice Collins says:

    Where is the review for the vitamins? You listed above that you will review that as well.

      Hi Latrice, thanks for visiting! The first sentence states that this is the review of the Mielle Organics hair product line sans (not including) the Mint Almond Oil, Avocado Hair Milk, and Advanced Healthy Hair Formula Vitamins. It’s a review of the cowash, leave-in conditioner, and deep conditioner only.

  3. Robyn Jardine-Kayij says:

    I tried their shampoo, leave in conditioner and the babussu leave in conditioner on myself and my son who has curly hair. I was disappointed in the shampoo because it left our hair very dry and brittle and you can’t see my sons curl pattern as you usually would. I like their deep conditioner but definitely won’t be buying the shampoo again.

    • Ammina Rose-LovinOurTextures.com says:

      Oh wow, that sucks. It’s a high-foaming shampoo. So that’s probably why you guys experienced dryness.

  4. Krischasiti says:

    I am going to stop using the products all together because I have experienced severe dryness and texture change. I hope that when I start using another product it can be reversed☹️☹️

    • Ammina Rose-LovinOurTextures.com says:

      Oh no. I am sorry to hear that. 🙁 Definitely go back to using products that you know will work to give your hair moisture and protein balance.

    I don’t mind splurging on hair care products. As long as it works good that is the only thing that truly matters to me. Sometimes the sane maybe true “you get what you pay for” (not all the time true; I know of some good cheap products that work really well like Crème of Nature Argan oil line and etc, but I know some expensive products that did a turn around on my hair that no other product can do like Ovation Cell Therapy and Joico products . However, I know there are hit and misses in every product line out there). I look at it as paying for good ingredients or paying for the healthy hair benefits. Other than that, I like your review. I might give these products a try.

    Can the Mielle products be used on relaxed hair or just for natural hair?
