My Experience:



I used the Milk Masque after doing the ACV Rinse to my Senegalese Twists. I did diluted the Milk Masque with water to make it more watery instead of creamy for easy application to the length of my NATURAL hair.

 Moisturizing Milk Masque Repairing Treatment Product Review

I sectioned my twists into four sections and ran the diluted Milk Masque down my NATURAL hair, then twisted each section up (no DC on my scalp). Then I placed two plastic caps over my twists and used my Gold N Hot hooded blow dryer attachment for deep conditioning for 20 minutes.

Once complete, I rinsed out with cool water in the sink then proceeded with my flaxseed gel water mist and my oil mixture.



My Own Thoughts:


I have a lot to say about Milk Masque...

When I first saw this in my CurlKit, I thought this was Creme of Nature with Argan Oil Intensive Conditioning Treatment (Conditioning Treatment).** Milk Masque is actually part of the new Crème of Nature line that has Argan Oil and Argan Butter from Morocco. The site claimed, "For curls with exotic shine (along with Stylers Pudding Perfection and Twirling Custard, along with Moisturizer Butter-Licious Curls)." I thought that was really cool to add the argan butter, so I thought I'd give it a try...and it was part of my CurlKit November 2014.



I noticed there was a really, really strong perfume smell when I used the Milk Masque. I mean, it was so strong, I thought I drenched my hair with lots and lots of perfume from Macy's. I mean, it was that strong! Then when I got a look at the ingredients, I was like "See, I knew it..."

Parfum (Fragrance) is the 5th ingredients on the list!!!!

 I know Fragrance adds smell to a product, but the first five ingredients are the MAIN ingredients in a products. I read on You Have The Right To Know: 17 Chemicals To Avoid In Cosmetic And Personal Care Products that Fragrance is, "Used to produce a pleasant scent. The term “fragrance” or “parfum” on a cosmetic ingredients list usually hides a complex mixture of dozens of chemicals." So I literally drenched boat load of chemical and fragrances on my hair...under the name Fragrance.

Once I saw Fragrance in the top five ingredients, I literally broke down each ingredient by it's layman term...oh! and compared it with the Conditioning Treatment. So I did notice a few:

Cetearyl Alcohol and Cetyl Alcohol


Don't be alarmed by theses alcohols...they are moisturizing to the hair. You would most definitely find these in conditioners and leave-in moisturizers. They condition and soften hair during the treatment.



I will say that even though my hair is in Senegalese twists, I did notice that my hair felt conditioned and moisturized. This is good since I found cetearyl alcohol in the top five of both products and cetyl alcohol in the top five of the Conditioning treatment.

Treatment Product Review

Dicetyldimonium Chloride


This ingredient is a conditioner as well as an anti-static agent. I learned on  Tightly Curly "It eliminates "fly-away" hair while leaving it manageable, soft, and tangle free as well as easy comb ability with wet and dry hair."



When I saw Dicetyldimonium Chloride in the top five ingredients in both the Conditioning Treatment and the Milk Masque, I was like, "NOOOOOO!" But I saw that this ingredient is actually a great product for the hair...moving on...



Polyquaternium-37

I learned on Tightly Curly that this product is, "hair fixative, so this means it can build up in your hair with repeated use, making it sticky or crunchy. Fine in gels or styling products, but use caution in shampoos and conditioners."

So I suppose it's not too bad because I don't use shampoos and conditioners that often...however, I will still give this ingredients caution to use.

Isopropyl Alcohol

Well, well, well...we all know that this product is a drying alcohol! I saw this inboth the Conditioning Treatment and the Milk Masque and was completely dumbfounded. I mean, you find this product in hairspray and hair spritzes, but a conditioning treatment? How do I use a conditioning treatment to moisturize my hair but it is possible it can dry my hair out as well...don't worry...I'll wait...

After I looked through all the ingredients to determine if they were good to look for and bad to avoid, I almost forgot to see where the ingredients for Argan Oil and Argan Butter were in the two products. I noticed the ingredient Argan Spinosa Kernel Oil in the middle, close to the bottom of both ingredient lists...but didn't see anything close to Argan Butter in the Milk Masque. *sigh* that's gonna raise a lot of questions...

I guess if you wanted to know the difference from my personal stand point, the Conditioning Treatment is better ingredients-wise and health-wise. I wouldn't mind using that again. I usually purchase the Conditioning Treatment in packs from Wal-Mart, costing $2 to $4 dollars. But I was informed by my cousin that you can also purchase the 12fl oz bottle as well! But as for the Milk Masque...



I WILL NOT PURCHASE THIS AGAIN!!!


Have you tried Milk Masque? What did you think about it?

  2. Hey Aletha! Here is a simple regimen: since your hair is thick, you would need to separate your hair in 4-6 sections/twists to keep them manageable. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair. Work with each section at a time. Then once you are ready to begin, have all your supplies (clips, wide-tooth comb, leave-in conditioner, oil for sealing, blowdryer is optional). It is important to WORK WITH ONE SECTION AT A TIME! Your hair is thick, remember that. Make sure your moisturize and seal the hair with your products. Check out these articles for the written instructions for using a blow dryer or the heatless method. You can do it! http://www.desiremynatural.com/2014/11/senegalese-series-vol-11-prepping-hair.html for blow drying tips and http://www.desiremynatural.com/2015/03/how-to-african-threading-for-heatless.html if you want a heatless method.
