A must-have in my hair care regimen is an oil that penetrates, moisturizes and adds shine. All too often, I try out oils for my hair, but they are too heavy, don’t penetrate or it takes a lot of product to get any results. So, I was quite excited to try out Madam CJ Walker Beauty Culture Scent & Shine Brassica Seed Oil because of it’s claims. Well, I found out that it lives up to all of it’s claims and then some.
What it is formulated to do:
A natural alternative to silicone, Scent & Shine Brassica Seed Oil smooths, silkens, and moisturizes while creating beautiful luster. It features a tempting blend of spun sugar and red velvet cream, and leaves hair nourished and restored.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
Cold pressed from seeds of the mustard family (Brassicaceae) to yield an extra virgin oil. The fatty acid profile of this oil (50 percent erucic acid an omega 9 fatty acid) is known to provide non-greasy moisture and significant film forming properties that make it an excellent natural substitute for the activity of silicones, resulting in a natural shine, smoothness, and silky softness. As it delivers pure goodness, subtle added fragrance covers date-to-date odors and refreshes curls and coils. A little goes a long way.
Madam CJ Walker Beauty Culture Scent & Shine Brassica Seed Oil is a lightweight, yet concentrated hair oil. I love using it daily for moisturizing my hair and adding shine. It helps control my flyaways and frizziness like nobodies business. I particularly love it for prepping my hair for any time I use heated applianced — blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron — I find that my hair is so smooth and silky afterward.
I have also used Madam CJ Walker Beauty Culture Scent & Shine Brassica Seed Oil in conjunction with my leave in conditioner and my hair isn’t at all frizzy. In fact, when air drying my hair, my curls are defined and frizz-free. The scent is lovely, not at all overbearing and alleviates any odor that comes from using heat on my hair.
Overall, my hair looks and feels healthier when using Madam CJ Walker Beauty Culture Scent & Shine Brassica Seed Oil and it’s going to be part of my ongoing hair care regimen.
