Design Essentials Natural hair line is now available in the UK, the brand was launched in Europe during last years Afro Hair Live. Design Essentials began in the 1990's and now has a huge range of hair care products including Design Essentials Natural. I was lucky enough to have been sent the range to try and will be reviewing each product over the next month.
The first Product I tried was the Curl Enhancing Mousse a wash and go product great for wavy to tightly curled hair. The Mousse, defines curls, reduces frizz and adds shine.
I love this product! it really elongated and defined my mini twists that I am wearing at the moment. However I'm not sure how it would fair if my hair was loose (I'd probably use it to set my twist outs). The Mousse dries fast and doesn't leave any residue and unlike some setting products I can touch my hair afterwards and it doesn't feel like hair not rice cakes!
The only downer is that like many products you have to apply the mousse generously, which is fine for my shorter hair, but those of you with extra long hair may struggle to make the mousse last.
Over all this is a fab product, it's quick and easy and great for wash and go's and of course it smells divine!
before dry hair
I washed hair with Design Essentials cleanser and conditioner, and applied 6 pumps of Curl Enhancing Mousse with my fingers and ran though my hair making sure my hair was evenly and generously covered from root to tip then left to air dry.
