4 Ways to Pamper Your Hair for Spring

“This post was sponsored by Madam C. J. Walker Beauty Culture, all thoughts and opinions are my own”

Okay, y'all--it is high time that we get our hair back on track from the winter months. Winter is always so harsh on hair. I'm talking super dry, frizzy, and dull hair. Spring is the perfect time to give hair just a little more TLC to bring it back to life. 

And I've got a plan!

This year I wanted to mix it up a little as far as my hair treatment routine goes--I got a chance to try the newly-released Madam C. J. Walker Beauty Culture. This is launching in select Sephora stores (and online) to help nourish, condition and restore the appearance of hair.

The Madam C. J. Walker Beauty Culture line consists of 4 collections that address the cleansing, treatment and styling needs of all hair textures:
  • Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Collection (Smoothing/Style-Extending)
  • Coconut & Moringa Oils Collection (Frizz Fighting/Humidity-Blocking) 
  • Jamaican Black Castor & Murumuru Oils Collection (Curl-Defining/Moisture- Sealing)
  • Dream Come True Collection (Scalp & Strand Nourishing)
A little more about the ingredients:
1. Dual Encapsulation Oil Technology – Our Dual Encapsulation Technology infuses hair with two natural oils – one reparative, the other, style-enhancing – delivering nourishment exactly where hair needs it most. These tiny microspheres infuse hair with targeted, time-released nutrients to rapidly boost conditioning benefits.

2. Natural Silicone Alternative – Brassica Seed Oil’s excellent antioxidant profile results in a natural shine, smoothness and silky softness without the potential for buildup.

The problem: very dry hair
The solution: Deep Conditioning Masque

I got to try some of two of the collections. First up is the Wonderful Deep Conditioning Masque. You only need to use it once a week, for just 15 minutes for hydrated hair. If you color your hair, you'll love this. Sometimes I'll apply it and leave it on for longer while I'm cleaning the house, for example. No parabens or sulfates. It has a lovely vanilla and white flower scent.

The problem: rough-textured hair
The Solution: Brassica Seed & Shea Oils

Next up are three items from the Smoothing/Style Extending line. Let's go from your left to right:
The Silkening Leave-In does just what it says--a liquid leave-in treatment. This liquid leave-in doubles as a nutrient-rich conditioner and is the perfect prep for smooth heat styling without buildup. Hair is left nourished, detangled, and soft. Dual encapsulation technology ensures a smooth finish as tiny microspheres deliver fast-absorbing brassica seed oil, a natural alternative to silicone!

The Silkening Blow Out Creme is what I use before blow drying my hair. It's protected from heat without buildup. 

The problem: dull hair
The solution: Brassica Seed Oil

Finally, the Brassica Seed Oil--Scent and shine in a bottle. No more dull hair! I add just a drop or two in my palm, rub my hands together, and run it through my hair. Instant shine. By the way, all of the products from this line smell like spun sugar and red velvet cream. YASSSS!

Hair problems solved! Now, WHERE TO PURCHASE PRODUCTS: The line is NOT available at all Sephora stores (I have seen it in Atlanta though!), so please use the store locator found HERE: http://mcjwbeautyculture.com/ as well as Sephora.com.

  34. Great review, Elle! I love learning about new products with you. You always choose interesting stuff that I've never heard of and I love that!

  35. Ooooh pretty packaging! And pretty soft curls on you!

  36. I saw these in Sephora, but didn't really look at them. The packaging is so cute! I love to do a hair mask and follow up with a leave in treatment. It makes my hair so soft and shiny!

  37. thanks for your tips, i will try your product in this spring...

  38. This is an uknown brand for me, but it must be amazing! My dull and frizzy hair need a heavy treatment asap, they are so lifeless. Your hair is looking great though, I like your hair colour!


  39. I've never heard of this brand, but I've been in the market for a hair regime that will make my hair feel super clean. I was really liking the Hask line of coconut shampoo and conditioner, but lately I feel like my hair is limp and dull looking. I want a clean feel with some shine. Do you have any recommendations?

  40. Your hair looks gorgeous and that hair mask sounds like it would work well for my hair!

  41. The sound like fantastic products! And I love the packaging

  42. It sounds like they smell fantastic! And what cute packaging! :)

  43. I absolutely adore the rose hued packaging with a vintage flair! I have long hair that's damaged and very dry at the tips so I think these products would really benefit my hair.

  44. My hair must be opposite to yours because it's soft and silky in the winter and frizzy in the summer. The Coconut & Moringa Oils Collection sounds fabulous for Florida's humidity.

  45. These look and sound amazing! I'm in need of some nourishing hair care, I'll have to check it out.

  46. never heard of it, but i kinda love the packaging, lol. the masque sounds interesting, as does the leave in conditioner. i'll have to check it out :)
