I am just trying to understand my hair, to learn what works and what doesn't, to experiment, make mistakes, and to embrace my hair in it's entirety..... because Roots Don't Lie

Product Trial Maiden Edition Review 2 by Miss Yetunde

Hey Guys,

Here is the second review of the Eden Body Works Product Line for the Product Trial Group.

Eden Body Works review by Miss Yetunde


1.       Brief description of hair type and lifestyle

a.       I have had relaxed hair for almost 20 years now, starting from when I was about 7 years old.  Although my hair is relaxed, I have a very thick/coarse texture.  On some days when I just wash my hair and leave it out, I’ve actually had people ask me if I’m natural.  This makes it kinda hard to manage at times.  I wear my hair naturally almost all the time – no weaves/braids, that’s just the way I’ve always done it. Before a few months ago, I just used the basic shampoo/conditioner (e.g motions), moisturized my hair and I would be ready to go.  In the past few months, I’ve started seeking out products that work well for me and my hair and that’s why I thought it would be a great idea to participate in this review.


b.      Lifestyle: I am currently a student and my schedule can get quite crazy/hectic and so I don’t always have time to do fancy stuff with my hair.  I’m pretty low maintenance in that way.  For the most part, my hair is either straightened or just out in a semi-fro the way you see in the pictures.  Those are basically my only 2 styles, I know that I need to be more adventurous lol. 


2.       Product review

a.       Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner

                                                               i.      Trials: 3

                                                             ii.      How I used it

1.       Deep conditioner: Applied this conditioner to wet hair after shampooing. I left it in for about an hour each time then rinsed it out.  I then de-tangled the wet hair afterwards.

                                                            iii.      Review:

1.       I love this conditioner for several reasons.  First of all, I love the consistency of the conditioner.  Since my hair is kinda thick, I tend to go through conditioners pretty quickly, but even after my 3 uses, I still have a lot of this conditioner left over.  In addition to this, after rinsing out the conditioner, my hair felt so soft and moisturized.  I think this is the best my hair has felt after conditioning (but keep in mind that I don’t have a lot of experience with different types of conditioners).  Lastly, I love the way it makes my hair smell. Its like a fresh-minty-clean hair smell if you know what I mean.

                                                           iv.      Buy again: definitely.  I honestly feel like I may have found my staple deep conditioner.

b.      Jojoba Monoi Hair Milk

                                                               i.      Trials: 3

                                                             ii.      How I used it

1.       Mainly as a hair moisturizer on days I felt my hair was dry and needed a little more moisture. 

                                                            iii.      Review

1.       One thing I like about this moisturizer is that it is not greasy and heavy.  With a lot of hair moisturizers, your hair gets bogged down with the grease, but with this product, my hands were even non oily by the time I was done applying it.  My hair still felt light but with some more moisture.  On the down side, it doesn’t really give a lot of shine to it, so I use a different product whenever I just straighten my hair and I want to give it that magazine-like shine lol. 

                                                           iv.      Buy again: unsure.  I definitely like it, but as a moisturizer I feel like I have to use it more times to determine if I’ll buy it again. 

Hope You Enjoyed

Bella Joya
