How to make your hair happy

I received this bottle of SILK18 conditioner from Maple Holistics to use, and it’s obviously for my hair, right?

Well, as a testimony to this product…I reached for what I thought was my hand cream and discovered I’d just slathered my hands with SILK18. My hands not only felt smoother, I liked the vanilla honey scent better. I actually checked the bottle to make sure it wasn’t a dual purpose product.

With the state of the universe being what it is, and living with my husband the Recycle Czar, I’ve lately made a concerted effort to pay attention to not only what I put in my body, but what I put on it as well. So, when Maple Holistics reached out and invited me to test this product, I welcomed the opportunity. Especially because I haven’t seen my natural hair color in ummm….let’s say, since I birthed my last child (he’s now almost 34). And I’m not known to purchase hair products that cost more than birthing said child.

Before even using the product, I checked the price point because there’s nothing worse than falling in love with something that doesn’t meet the budget. The conditioner sells for $12.95, and if bought with the shampoo, the set sells for under twenty dollars.

Letting my hair grow past my shoulders has allowed me the benefit of bad hair days (hello elastic hair bands), but it’s also meant my ends can sometimes look a wee bit like hay. Mostly because if I’m not burning hands with the curling iron, I’m burning my hair. This article on damaged hair could have used me as a case study.

I’ve used this product several times now, much to the dismay of my other conditioner which is now abandoned and banished to my bathroom cabinet. I like the scent and the fact that it’s not heavy on my hair, and yet I can still comb it out without fighting tangles.

Maple Holistics is PETA-certified cruelty-free. And if you don’t like a product, you can return it for a refund or an exchange. I’m also impressed, as a former teacher, that the company offers a $1,000 scholarship on an annual basis.
