Megan Thee Stallion’s hair is an extremely valid topic of conversation. Her wigs always look flawless, and she has recently blessed us by serving more looks rocking her natural hair.
The one thing fans have noticed is just how much her hair has grown since we last saw it, as well as her obvious colour change, which I am personally a BIG FAN of. So, I thought perhaps it was time to dive into Meg’s alleged curly hair routine and share my thoughts on the products and how they worked on my own hair.
Megan Thee Stallion recently reached out to her fans asking which Black-owned brands and products were best for natural hair. This resulted in working in partnership/ambassadorship with Mielle Organics and it seems to be working for her! Let’s take a look at the products and how I got on with them.
Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Shampoo
This is a sulfate-free formula that very gently cleanses the hair while adding moisture, so if you’re really struggling with dryness, this would be a perfect product to reach for. Given how moisturising it is, I would only recommend using it when your hair absolutely needs it, i.e when your hair is matted, when your scalp is dry or when wash day is well and truly overdue.
Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Conditioner
The conditioner counterpart is lightweight and balances out the intense moisture that the matching shampoo offers. It almost instantly softens hair and quickly penetrates the hair shaft for substantial moisture. All of the products from the Hawaiian Ginger line smell incredible; of all Mielle’s lines, this one probably has my favourite scent! When I rinse this out, my curls feel light and hydrated.
Rice Water Moisturising Milk
Rice water has been said to encourage hair growth, with a lot of naturals making their own rice water recipes at home. Mielle saw the trend coming and created a line to answer the needs of those not willing to spend extra time in their kitchens DIYing.
Considering the background of rice water in the curly hair community, you might think it would be high up on the ingredients list but there is actually only a small amount of it present in the product, which is something to consider before purchasing.
Nevertheless, I have enjoyed the Moisturising Milk, £11.75, Beauty Bay. I use it as a leave-in conditioner and it offers lightweight moisture, which pairs perfectly with the Coiling Custard, £15, Beauty Bay, to create my preferred, voluminous look. If you require a lot of moisture for your hair to last until your next wash day, I’d recommend using the Pomegranate and Honey Leave-In Conditioner, £15, Beauty Bay, as an alternative.
Pomegranate and Honey Coil Sculpting Custard
I love this custard! It adds hold, encourages curl definition and adds shine to my curls; it’s a perfect styling product. I’ve been tempted to try this alone as a one product wash and go as I think it provides enough moisture to last at least a few days – an experiment for future Penny.
Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil
This very oil kickstarted the rosemary oil TikTok trend.
Black women with curly/Afro hair have been using this oil for years to help maintain scalp health and therefore encourage hair growth. More recently, women with straight hair started using the oil and mentioned it feeling too heavy, which makes sense as the oil was made with curly and Afro hair textures in mind. This led to women with looser hair textures searching for alternative oils, which is why your Tiktok FYP is FULL of rosemary oil adverts!
To give an insightful review, I’d have to use the oil for an extended period of time. However, just from initial testing, it feels like a nice, calming product to keep on top of scalp care and to me (with curly hair), it does not feel heavy at all.
Overall, I can definitely see the benefits of using this routine as it provides a little bit of everything: moisture, volume and hair growth.
And if Megan Thee Stallion’s hair looks like THAT from using these products, they’re definitely worth a try.
