Generally just about every healthy hair lover does the 'Get thee behind me satan' eye roll when it comes to Mineral oils. The so called "pore clogging nasty" is usually frowned upon the more FOR healthy hair care we are, but what happens when one of your staples so happens to endorse Mineral oils as the 4th main ingredient AND to top things off no other staple/product has yet to work wonders on your hair like it does? Do you bail and avoid the dredded 'Oh no she didn't' glares, or do you stand your ground and buy a ride or die t-shirt?
I began re-using my AtOne with nature Leave-In Conditioner this year when I needed something with super slip to caress my confused transitioning tresses with, and since then as you know and I keep on saying; wash days have been blissful. It was only when after looking at the Paul Mitchell Foaming Pommade ingredient list [received in my Amitee PS Beauty Box], that I decided to also look at the AtOne ingredient list because it was on my desk staring straight at me!
I won't lie my heart sunk at the sight of Mineral oil in position 4 [haha overexaggeration]! I'm not one to say that Mineral oils are outright bad for you but I do believe that a more natural product with just as much slip, which mind you I plan on formulating, will be more beneficial for the overall health of my strands.
So what's a girl to do? Right now I simply ensure that I give my hair some ultimate lovin by going the full mile when washing my hair. I co-wash 3 times a week now but always pre-poo beforehand, and follow up with a quick 10-15 minute DC after washing. All in all I won't be getting rid of my AtOne just as yet!
I have several review products that are coming my way, and are all Leave-Ins hoping to boot AtOne out of my fave Leave-In Conditioner position, so who's to say I won't find something in no time!
Stay tuned for my official ORIGINAL MOXIE PRODUCT REVIEW SHOWDOWN which I will dish the goss on tomorrow.
What are your thought on Mineral Oils... 'Heck no!' Or 'A girls gotta do right by her [current] Leave-In?
