Hair Washing Day Feat. Palmer's Cocoa Butter and Biotin Hair Products

Hello Everyone!


* Disclaimer: This post contains PR Samples provided by Palmer's  for review purposes. I would like to thank Palmer's  for sending these products. All opinions are 100% my own. Product information, courtesy of palmers.com



This past Summer heat and humidity left my hair dry and frizzy...more than usual. I recently tried a few new products from Palmer's Cocoa Butter and Biotin hair care. I love cocoa butter and biotin is supposed to be good for your hair. Let's see if these products worked for my hair!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Cocoa Butter & Biotin Length Retention Shampoo

Gently moisturize and cleanse with Cocoa Butter & Biotin Length Retention Shampoo. Address breakage, damage, and split ends by keeping the hair (and scalp!) moisturized, fortified and healthy in order to achieve optimum growth potential. Cocoa Butter has hair softening properties for healthy shine and its rich moisture shields hair from dryness and over-processing.

No Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Gluten, Dyes, Silicones

My Thoughts

This shampoo is a good cleanser for my hair. I think I used too much shampoo, because it a lot of effort to rinse my hair. I guess that's not always a bad thing. This shampoo lathers well, but it didn't feel that moisturizing.  My hair didn't feel dry, but my hair did look frizzy.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Color Safe For All Hair Colors, Curl Patterns and Textures

No Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Gluten, Dyes, Silicones

My Thoughts

I'm a curly haired girl and this hair mask is a quick fix instead of what I was looking for. My hair is thick and curly so I need a little more hair mask than what's in these packs. The products per se aren't bad, and my hair felt soft. I wouldn't call this a deep conditioning mask for my hair though. I would like to see the hair mask come in a jar rather than these packets. I feel with a jar you would get more product for the needs of your hair.

Cocoa Butter & Biotin Length Retention Leave In Conditioner

Benefits:

Addresses breakage, damage, and split endsSulfate & Silicone Free Leave-In ConditionerHas color & length retention benefitsMoisturizing detanglerHeat Protectant

No Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Gluten, Dyes, Silicones

My Thoughts

As I detangled my hair, I noticed that there wasn't a lot of breakage. I'm pretty happy about that. Usually when I wash my hair I have breakage. Detangling my hair wasn't too difficult when I used the leave in conditioner. I'm always looking for a good leave in conditioner that will keep my hair feeling moisturized since my hair is dry, and this product works well.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Cocoa Butter & Biotin Length Retention Shine Glaze Serum

No Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Gluten, Dyes, Silicones

My Thoughts

I like that my hair does look shiny when I used this shine glaze serum.  My hair didn't feel greasy,  but the serum does give my hair a healthy looking shine. I didn't want to use to much of this serum, because over usage of serums tend to actually dry my hair by the end of the day. Less is more for my curly hair.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Thoughts

I'm so glad this styling nectar doesn't leave my hair feeling crunchy! I usually like to use a gel throughout my curls, and I think I found a new go to gel! My hair is frizzy, and this styling nectar also helps with edge control. I can put my hair in an effortless puff without having to worry about my edges looking frizzy. This gel is also long lasting throughout the day.

My Thoughts

I used this after I did a twist out for my hair, and my curls looked so full and healthy. This is definitely a yay for my hair. After combing through my curls, I noticed that there wasn't a lot of breakage. I like that these Palmer's products help reduce my hear breakage.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Overall I think this is an okay collection. Some products were better than others. If the formula in some of the products were revamped, I feel the products would be better. Two examples of improvement I would like to see include: more moisture in the shampoo, and jar options for the hair mask. I think this is a type of collection that you truly have to base your opinions on your hair type.

When did Palmer's release these products? I like the idea of cocoa butter hair products!

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Pilar said...

I love Palmer's products, especially the cocoa butter formula!

Pilar said...

I first tried Palmer's hair care products a few years ago. I think I used the olive oil formula. Those products were ok, but some of the olive oil formula products made my hair dry and brittle.

Pilar said...

I think this line was released in August 2019. The cocoa butter hair care products smell good!

Tanza Erlambang said...

Cocoa Butter & Biotin look interesting....
thank you for sharing useful post

Ivana Split said...

These Palmer's hair care products sound great. From what I understood, they all worked well besides the shampoo that left you with frizzy hair (but was otherwise alright). The serum and the hair mask both sound lovely. The Cream Styler seems like a nice hair product too.

ALLIE NYC said...

This sounds like a mixed bag with some decent products and some misses. I really need a good detangler. But I really struggle with my hair because it is both thin and flat and wiry and frizzy at the same time! It is not stick straight, nor curly. It is not even wavy but more of what I like to describe as cowlicky with sporadic lumpy waves that stick close to my head.

Most oils, serums, creams and leave in conditioners leave my hair flat and dirty looking. But it is also damaged and very frizzy so it needs something. Yup the struggle is real!

Imagine these products would smell good! Are these products sold in stores?

Evi Erlinda said...

Sounds great! I'd love to try them.
Thanks Pilar.

Pilar said...

You're welcome!

Pilar said...

I like the Shampoo, but I try to use hair care products that reduce frizz. I haven't been so lucky though. The hair mask was good, but my hair is thick and it wasn't enough product.

Pilar said...

Mixed hits and misses are the best way to describe the products. A good detangler is must for me. My hair is thick and frizzy so finding hair care products is very challenging for me to find. I like Palmer's, and I'm hoping the brand will improve the formula on some of the products. The missed weren't terrible.

Pilar said...

You're welcome!

Pilar said...

I'm not sure, but look in Target and Walmart. If you can't find the products in stores, check online palmers.com

Marie said...

Ok I'll do that! Thanks!

Pilar said...

You're welcome!
