The Newbies: Big Hair Beauty




Today I'm highlighting yet another home grown natural hair brand. I'm a huge fan of British brands, and I'm impressed with the number of brands that have emerged in the last 6 years since I have been blogging. Not only are we producing products to rival the American leaders but we are producing women of colour entrepreneurs  (who runs the world? GIRLS!) New brands are emerging all the time one of which is Big Hair Beauty, Big Hair is a natural line with products up to 100% natural for all hair types. Big Hair is the brain child of Melissa Sinclair, who like so many was frustrated with the lack of natural products available she has produced a capsule collection of four products that are very beneficial for caring for afro hair. The line consists of Soft Clean, SLS Free Shampoo, Moisturising Milk, Leave In Conditioner, DEEP Conditioning, Hair Treatment and  Moisture Me, Whipped Butter.



The products range from £9.95 - £14.95 all the products are of a high quality and looks great. The stand out product for me is the Moisture Me, Whipped Butter which is awesome!  rich with Avocado Butter which my hair loves for its lightness yet ability to lock in moisture the butter is 100% natural and a little goes a long way. This is a most for really kinky hair textures I found that it works in my hair when applied wet or dry and is amazing for sealing my ends. This definitely something I'll be adding to my product arsenal. 

Moisture Me, Whipped Butter 

Avocado Butter (Persea Gratissima), Shea Butter Seed Oil (Butyrospermum Parkii), Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis), Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus Sinensis)


Soft Clean, SLS Free Shampoo I prefer to use shampoo bars, but as liquid shampoos go this isn't bad at all. it left my hair feeling clean without leaving it feeling dry however I feel I had to use a lot to get the though my hair

Soft Clean, SLS Free Shampoo

Aqua (Water), Decyl Glucoside*, Coco-Glucoside**, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice (Aloe Barbadensis), Shea butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Pro-Vitamin B5 (Panthenol), Eco-Cert Approved Preservative (Phenoxyethanol & Caprylyl Glycol), Soybean Oil (Glycine Soja), Xanthan gum, Shea Butter Seed Oil (Butyrospermum Parkii), Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus Sinensis), Mandarin Oil (Citrus Nobilis), Citric Acid (neutraliser to balance pH)
*Derived from sugar
**Completely biodegradable, derived from coconut oil



Moisturising Milk, Leave In Conditioner is 99% natural, initially when I squeezed this out of the bottle it looked a little bit grainy which I thought was weird for a hair milk which is usually quiet smooth, however once I rubbed the lotion between my palms is smooths out and doesn't go grainy again once in your hair. This product has good slip but for my hair I wouldn't be able to just use this as a leave in without adding something thicker as my hair just drank it up. That being said I put this in Freya's hair is it worked wonderfully, leaving her hair with little corkscrew curls that are super soft.

DEEP Conditioning, Hair Treatment is another stand out product from Big Hair, Rich with Moroccan Rhassoul clay, which my hair loves. This is a great treatment and at an amazing price. What I love about DEEP Conditioning, Hair Treatment is the airy consistency, I find (though I love it) Rhassoul heavy treatments can be a bugger to get on the hair, This product however goes on like butter and doesn't drip! My hair was left very soft after using the treatment it's definitely an affordable treatment to add to your regimen.
