The more I think about it, the more convinced I become that my hair may never return to its true natural state. You know! The state of your hair when you were a kid. When the only thing that touched it was Luster’s pink lotion and ultra sheen hair dress. It was healthy and fluffy and always tamed. I sometimes miss those days. It’s almost as if that lotion and that hair dress were magic.
Now being “natural” doesn’t mean the same thing. Most naturals cringe at some of the ingredients in both products and refuse to let ultra sheen, or blue magic hair grease touch their kids’ heads. When did we get too good for that?
If you follow this blog, you know my love for Murray’s hair pomade so it probably comes as no surprise that I have zero problem with hair grease. I have not had any hair grease though in years. Instead of going for the Johnson’s ultra sheen though I decided to try out the My Honey Child hair grease. Its full name is “Sophia’s Old Fashioned Hair Grease.”
The ingredients? Sunflower butter, raw honey, rosemary oil, olive oil, and fruit enzymes. What is lacking that your grandma’s hair grease probably had? Petroleum, or some form of it. I was so excited about trying the My Honey Child grease, but I miss the petroleum element. Without it the grease is still as greasy, but does not have the same result of using the ultra sheen and other hair greases. What it lacks is holding power.
The smell of the My Honey Child grease is heavenly though. It smells like mango, and if you are looking for a lighter hair grease with natural ingredients, the smell may be enough to get you hooked. I’ve used it to lay hair down, updos, and for straightening my hair. I’ll use the jar up, but doubt it will be added to my regular line-up of hair products.
