Hey chicas!! I hope everyone had a blessed Resurrection Sunday and got to enjoy the day with their families! This resurrection this year really symbolizes a true New beginning, like a changing of the guards, I feel like there’s a LOT of activity in the spiritual realm going on and it’s like a build up of anticipation! Ah can’t wait for what’s in store!! :o)
Also, I feel like I am always apologizing for something lol but on Monday I suddenly came down with something, a cold/virus (going to the Dr.’s today), and still feel like crap so I haven’t been on my computer much, PLUS I still have been working on a TON of freelance graphic design jobs (thanks for all the new inquires I have gotten from my readers!!) ….oh and fitting in a full time job in between all that as well lol sooo again, SORRY for the lack of posts :o(
So I have indulged in more products from my favorite brand, Bee Mine hehe. I really am addicted lol and this stuff really IS that good!! I have a bunch of other Bee Mine products just waiting to be used….yes, I know, it’s a problem, I didn’t mean it lightly when I said I LOVE Bee Mine lol #DontJudgeMe :o)
So here’s the Deja’s Hair Milk, which retails for $15 for 8 oz, $27 for 16 oz or the trial size of 2.2 oz for $5.50. Again, yes I know Bee Mine is in the higher price point category (along with Karen’s Body Beautiful, my other FAV brand) BUT you pay for what you get! AND Bee Mine boasts that their products are All Natural AND Organic! Most brands can’t claim that they are BOTH natural and organic, so you know you are getting the best you can possibly get for the health of your hair. It’s worth it, if you don’t believe me, read the reviews on their site for yourself! 5 star ratings for damn near every product! I’m so mad I never knew about Bee Mine until last year! #GoFigure
So I have the 8 oz Hair Milk in the Coconut Cream scent which is the same scent as the Bee-U-Ti-Ful Deep Conditioner. It smells soooooo lusciously yummy! Mmm mmmm mmm I love coconut so it’s so fitting lol If you aren’t a coconut fan, the Hair Milk also comes in an Island Mango scent and they also have a limited edition Sweetie Peach scent. I bet that one smells really yummy too!
This hair milk has many benefits for the health and condition of your hair. It’s lightweight but very moisturizing. The oils and butters will nourish and naturally moisturize every strand of your tresses without leaving your hair greasy. The grapefruit essential oil strengthens and keeps your hair healthy while the peppermint essential oil helps to stimulate growth. Good for all hair types, braids and weaves too. We aim to help your hair be the healthiest it can be. Use Deja’s Hair Milk to: defrizz, moisturize on damp hair, as a second day refresher, detangler or leave in.

So I haven’t really one to use Hair Milks, no particular reason, just never moved me. BUT when I saw Deja’s Hair Milk, and read the ingredients, my mind immediately thought Sweet Ambrosia! lol so I definitely had to try it. Plus everything from Bee Mine I’ve tried so far has never let me down :o) DHM has a super creamy, milky consistency and applies wet because it is water based which also means a longer drying time in comparison to a butter product. It is a bit thicker in consistency than the Sweet Ambrosia but doesn’t provide as much hold which is fine. It’s super lightweight, no where near greasy which means touchable hair :o)
The first time I used it, I used it by itself as I always do to see how my hair interacts with products with no other “product influences”. I applied on wet hair and it distributed really well, it also helped with the finger detangling process as I smoothed it through my strands. Did I mention the scent?! OMG Bee Mine’s signature Coconut Cream scent is sooooo yummy, I can’t get over it lol any who, so Deja’s Hair Milk does an AMAZING job at moisturizing my hair, so much to the point where I prefer to wear this under a thicker butter. I realize this because this product alone doesn’t give me much hold and I can just tell how my hair feels when its moisturized, it’s like my hair is more “plump” for lack of a better word lol it has a certain glimmer to it and is more elastic. So using a butter along with DHM helps seal in that moisture and give me more hold. The fact that DHM is lightweight is wonderful so using it under a butter won’t add to a lot of product build-up.
A little definitely goes a long way! DHM is great for when I am re-twisting my hair during the week because I don’t need to spritz my hair with water because the DHM does such a great job at moisturizing. I love that because it’s one less step and one less bottle I have to reach for when it’s time to do my hair (saves time!). DHM contains coconut milk AND coconut oil which is probably why I noticed my hair felt really elastic, over time, this means less breakage!
I’m excited to use this in conjunction with some of my other fav products, I feel like this will really help strengthen my hair so I eventually go Beyonce blonde lol!! :oP
Here’s my hair on the first day, freshly untwisted and the last two pics are on the 2nd day. By the next day, my hair was a bit on the poofy side, which is why DHM wouldn’t work as a styler product for me, I need to use this as a moisturizer in conjunction with a heavier butter to get the hold I prefer. It does make my hair super soft and super shiny!
