Maui Moisture is one of the newest product brands on the market. Not sold as a “natural hair” product line, but one that is geared towards assisting with hair issues such as dry, damaged, frizzy and a term that I’m not sure if it’s meant for the kinky hair – unruly. In this blog post, not sponsored by Maui Moisture, I will go over 5 things that I love and dislike about the product brand.
Maui Moisture Packaging and Price * * * *
Looking in the store for bobbi pins, I came across a bottle, at a quick glance, resembled a fruit smoothie. I immediately thought why isn’t this bottle in the refrigerator section. Closely noticing that there were others — it was indeed a hair care line. I was intrigued to stand in the aisle, and read the label of each one and the underlining ingredients. Being a natural for some time now, I have learned that you cannot just buy a product because of popularity, main ingredients mentioned on the front or because it smells nice. This product line was packaged nicely and very easy to handle in the shower. With some research, I see that the bottles can range in price from $7.99 to $9.99 for 13 ounces. I will look for and catch a sale to grab more of the conditioner.
Maui Moisture Fragrance * * *
The line that I choose to purchase and try for mini me and I was the curl quench and coconut oil for thick, curly hair. I immediately smelled the coconut and papaya scent when I opened the bottle of shampoo. Wish I could get the smoothie too, but it was not available in the store. After two washes with the shampoo, and a use of the conditioner, the smell was not as strong as other product lines, but it was present. With the spring to summer season upon us, too many fragrances may not be the best for allergies and the attraction to bugs.
Maui Moisture Cleanliness * * *
Using a unique blend of aloe vera juice and coconut water, the Maui Moisture Curl Quench and Coconut Oil Shampoo cleans the scalp very well. Does it make the hair squeaky clean? No. There are no harsh ingredients in the product line to fully break down any product buildup. I wouldn’t suggest using this line if you want a fully clean wash to take all products off your hair. I would definitely use this shampoo again.
For us, especially since mini natural has eczema, getting the scalp clean and not dry in the end of the process, Maui Moisture, Curl Quench & Coconut Oil, could do this. There were no issues with her hair and mine being in a tapered cut, my scalp felt very clean. I found that a little of the creamy shampoo, goes a long way. Once you start to lather, you will see that it creates a lot. Those memes about using a dime size, applies to this product line.
Detangling with Maui Moisture * * * *
Along with using the shampoo of the same line, detangling mini natural’s hair was a breeze. There were some trouble spots, but that was my laziness of not detangling thoroughly before washing. It happens, no judgement. Even with this, detangling sections of her hair, did not result in screaming bloody murder. Yes, we occasionally still have our moments. I generously used the conditioner in her hair to assist in her comfort while I detangled, a little does go a long way. It did not just sit on her hair like some other conditioners – I was content with using it on her hair and for my own.
Variety of Maui Moisture products * *
With so many brands on the market, it’s difficult to narrow down which product line is right for your hair. Maui Moisture already has six shampoo and conditioner mixes that are for different hair texture issues. Their main goal is to help you get your hair looking healthy on a trip to the Maui islands without a need for a passport. I don’t think this brand should continue to create further lines. In my opinion, when a brand stretches their arms wider than they physically can, older lines become obsolete or formulas are changed that actually work for people such as myself who can not use just anything.
Here are the six product lines for the Maui Moisture brand:
Maui Moisture Heal & Hydrate and Shea Butter for Dry, Damaged Hair – Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Mask and Raw Oil
Maui Moisture Thicken & Restore and Bamboo Fibers for Weak, Brittle Hair – Shampoo, Conditioner, Fortifying Mask and Blow Out Mist
Maui Moisture Strength & Anti-Breakage and Agave (Rich Honey Raw Oil) for Chemically Damaged Hair – Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Mask.
Maui Moisture Nourish & Moisture and Coconut Milk for Dry Hair – Shampoo, Conditioner and Weightless Oil Mist.
Maui Moisture Smooth & Repair and Vanilla Bean for Frizzy, Unruly Hair– Shampoo and Conditioner.
Maui Moisture – Curl Quench and Coconut Oil for Thick, Curly Hair– Shampoo, Conditioner, Curl Milk and Curl Smoothie – this brand is the one that I personally purchased and tried on mini natural and my hair. I was nervous seeing many reviews on YouTube with hair similar to ours. If you recall, mini me and I have complete opposite hair textures. Both in the Type 4 Natural hair category, hers with a looser curl pattern to my tight curl, Maui Moisture did what the label mentioned, which was to hydrate, smooth and defrizz our hair. The tutorials all had something in common, they were using product lines that weren’t intended for their hair. Mini and I both have thick, curly hair – back to the packaging, you must read and purchase the line that will work best for the description of your hair. I wouldn’t use the thicken and restore because our hair is not weak and brittle or chemically damaged. Be mindful of the product lines and your hair texture to have the best results.
Is it the best shampoo and conditioner combo for our hair – no, but I will finish the Maui Moisture Curl Quench line for my hair when in need.
