Thank God I'm Natural

The natural hair community has been a buzz about the T.G.I.N natural hair product line. So, like a good product junkie, I decided to try it out for myself. I visited the company's website and was elated that they sold a sample pack of their goodies.
The Sample Pack includes 2 oz sizes of the following products: Sulfate Free Shampoo, Triple Moisture Rich Conditioner, Honey Miracle Hair Mask and the Butter Cream Daily Moisturizer.

Sulfate Free Shampoo
Product Claims:     
Cleans hair, gently and effectively

  • Sulfate free formula
  • Does not contain harsh detergents that strip the hair of its natural oils
  • Smoothes the cuticle surface
  • Leaves hair feeling soft and smooth
  • Infused with Pro Vitamin B5 for reduced breakage and increased moisture
  • No parabens, sulfates, petrolatum, lanolin, artificial colors, or animal testing.

  • ***My Experience***
    Most shampoos leave your hair with that striped feeling. But this one left my hair clean and moisturised. One big surprise for me was the large amount of lather the shampoo had. I was expecting little to no lather because of the sulfate free claims. 

    Triple Moisture Rich Conditioner
    Product Claims:
    Leaves hair feeling soft, smooth and manageable with every use
    Replenishes hair’s natural oils
  • Penetrates hair’s cuticle to allow for thorough conditioning
  • Helps prevent split ends and reduce breakage
  • Promotes healthy hair growth
  • No parabens, sulfates, petrolatum, lanolin, artificial colors, or animal testing.

  • ***My Experience***
    I loved the smell of the conditioner. As soon as I put it on my hair, it began the task of making my strands soft and easier to manipulate.

    Honey Miracle Hair Mask
    Product Claims:
    • Restores life to dry, damaged, or color treated hair 
    • Improves shine and manageability 
    • Locks in moisture and repairs damage 
    • Reduces shedding and breakage
    ***My Experience***
    Because of the length and thickness of my hair, the sample provided of this product was barely enough to coat one quarter of my head of hair. I felt that my strands were not saturated enough to see any affects of the product. I was very disappointed with the barely 1oz amount of product that was sent in the container.  I guess I'll have to purchase the full size of this product to give a better review.

    Butter Cream Daily Moisturiser
    Product Claims:
    Hydrates dry curls and coils

  • Improves manageability
  • Reduces frizz and fly aways
  • Promotes healthy hair growth, shine, and softness
  • May also be used as a setting cream for two strand twists and twist-outs
  • No parabens, sulfates, petrolatum, lanolin, artificial colors, or animal testing.
  • ***My Experience***                                                                                                                                              I loved the texture of the butter cream. It wasn't heavy or too light. The smell is amazing and I loved how moisturised my hair felt when I put it on. However, my hair felt slightly sticky to the touch (but that could be a combination of the butter cream and the twist and define butter I used to seal my hair). When I took down my twists, there was a soft definition to it which I liked.
  • ***Overall Conclusion***                                                                                                                                                     I would give the entire collection 3.5 stars out of 5.  Although the collection was nice, nothing was quite out of the ordinary for me. It performed the same as most of the regular products on the market. I was satisfied but not blown away.  The list of ingredients in the products were all healthy top shelf items that you would want in a quality natural hair product. I liked the fact that the first ingredient listed in each of the products was water.  From the entire collection, I would probably repurchase the full size container of the butter cream daily moisturiser.
