Blaq Vixen Beauty Reviews Black Crown Natural Hair Care

Black Crown Natural Hair Care

A  || B  A  C  K  S  T  O  R  Y 

This haircare review is terribly overdue, but here it is, finally! I was contacted to review select products from Margaret Mason’s Black Crown Natural Hair Care line, namely the Peppermint and Tea Tree Shampoo, the Hemp Hot Oil Treatment, and the Moisturizing Oil Spray. All of these products are for women and men with locs. 

Shanola Hampton 

My celebrity inspiration for this review was “Shameless” star Shanola Hampton. If I ever decide to loc my hair (I have flirted with the idea), she would be the first to grace my vision board. She looks simply divine with her lengthy, roping strands. Black Crown even has a Loc Box starter kit that includes all of the products I’ve used plus the Loc Fresh Refresher Spray, Loc Light Moisturizing Creme, and the quintessential satin bonnet.

Since I started writing about my experience with Black Crown, a new product has hit the collection: the Healthy Scalp Elixir. This winter oil has avocado, camellia seed oil, lemongrass and eucalyptus essential oils to help relieve dryness and itchiness while promoting lush, thriving locs.

Surprisingly, Black Crown does not have a conditioner or a deep conditioner (yet) but I am genuinely excited to see what other potential products may be in the works.

Get Her Exact Look: Marsha Ambrosius’s Sleek BET Awards Fishtail Braid

Marsha Ambrosius’ look on the 2014 BET awards red carpet was a combination of sleek and edgy. As told to Blaq Vixen Beauty by celebrity hairstylist Tiffany Daugherty. Check out her profile at Epiphany Agency.

Her natural hair was shampooed and conditioned using Motions Straight Finish Cleanser and Straight Finish Leave-In Conditioner. This conditioned the hair and created the base for the sleek look. After the Leave-In Conditioner was applied, the hair was blown dry with a medium paddle brush and a Cricket Q-Zone Professional Lightweight Dryer. The hair was then flat ironed with a Sedu flat iron to give a more smooth effect.
