Madam C J Walker Beauty Culture Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Leave In and Blow Out Creme

 Every revolutionary step we take has been paved by trailblazing women before us. Madam C.J. Walker was a woman who lived with a vision that was beyond her time. America’s first female self-made millionaire, Madam Walker defied history and expectations and built a global beauty empire that empowered women to be their best – while enriching communities across the nation through her generous philanthropy and activism. Whether you are building a business, getting an education, raising a family, ascending the corporate ranks, serving country and community through public office, the military, non-profits or volunteerism, or any combination of these and more – you are a Modern Day Madam…a woman defying the odds every day to create the life you desire.

Inspired by the original Madam Walker, Madam C J Walker Beauty Culture is more than a brand, it is a legacy. Reimagined for modern beauties and our specific hair needs, these are performance driven products formulated with natural, high quality ingredients that deliver results and help us all to be unapologetic in the expression of our individual beauty.

I received two items from this line to try. I was encouraged to peruse the  Madam C J Walker Collection on Sephora's website and choose a couple of products that would best suit my own tresses. I went right to the Brassica Seed and Shea Oils Smooth Style line. I have long, rather thicker than normal, wurly, frizz prone hair that is dry and damaged, thanks to my affinity for being blonde and playing with creative colours. My hair needs deep hydration, tons of slip and to be coated, cushioned and protected from friction, heat and just day to day living. Madam C J Walker delivers.

Madam C J Walker Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Leave In is formulated with Brassica Seed Oil, a natural alternative to silicone that provides the slip, smoothness and luster I desire without creating buildup or weighing my hair down. This rich, balmy stuff smells absolutely delicious with notes of Spun Sugar, Red Velvet Creme and I detect Musk, as well. The scent is prevalent without being overwhelming and it lingers softly, beautifully in my hair for days. Oh, and it leaves my hands smelling nice for hours, even after multiple hand washings.

I like to apply Silkening Leave In after I wash my hair. I put my freshly washed and conditioned hair loosely in my turbie for a couple of minutes then let it down, divide it in half down the back and apply about a nickle size dollop, first to one side then the other, concentrating on my length and ends then finishing up at my roots and crown. I get a little extra to work into particularly dry/frizz prone areas of my canopy then I detangle, working gently from my ends upward, using my wide tooth comb. The Brassica Seed and Shea Oils provide the slip I need to nearly effortlessly work the snarls from my tangle prone wurls and deeply hydrates and softens my distressed tresses. If I'm air drying, I add a little hair oil to seal in all of that good moisture and further soften and condition. I then damp bun or let it hang loose to dry. From my first use of this gorgeous product, it became a favorite.

Blow drying or as I like to call it, "blow frying" is a step I have to take if I want the sleek, smooth look I prefer for my hair. Being absolutely hopeless with a blow dryer and round brush, I rely on my Revlon One Step Hair Dryer and Styler and of course, Madam C J Walker Brassica Seed & Shea Oil Silkening Blow Out Creme.

The Silkening Blow Out Creme is, in reality a thin, quite liquid-y formulation that contains Brassica Seed Oil and Shea that provides natural heat protection and brush glide to reduce tug, friction and breakage. This blow out creme has the same delicious, delightful scent as it's sister product. When I use this product before I blow dry, my hair comes out so soft, silky-smooth, shiny and it stays that way for days and days, even when I wear it up then let it down, again. If you follow me on Snapchat, you will have seen my hair in it's sleek, shining freshly blown out glory. I am so impressed with this incredible stuff!

Ingredients:
-Brassica Seed Oil: A natural alternative to silicone. 
-Shea Oil: A natural deep conditioner for hair. 
-Sage: Supports scalp health. 
-Panthenol (Provitamin B5): Blocks moisture and keeps hair shiny.

I am not, however impressed with the packaging. The tube in which my Silkening Blow Out Creme arrived has a large opening and merely tipping it down to dispense the product results in a gusher with splashing and blow out creme running down my shirt. *sigh* I have to be very careful about how I dispense this product for use. If you ask me, this gorgeous stuff needs to be in a pump bottle or, just switch the packaging of these two products. Put the blow out creme in the disc top cap bottle and the thick leave in in the tube.

Packaging aside, I am deeply impressed with Madam C J Walker Beauty Culture products and their mission statement. The Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Leave In and Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Blow Out Creme are beautiful products that deliver the results that they promise. Both products are free of Sulfates, Parabens and Phthalates and this line is Cruelty Free.

Madam C J Walker Beauty Culture has a full range of products designed to address the concerns and unique needs of every hair type. Have you tried this brand? What are your favorites? Please do tell.
