      2. Moisture in Abundance Scalp & Hair Rescue Set

      A match made in scalp & hair heaven. 

      The Word on the Street: 

            • "I've been using the MIA duo for a few weeks now and can honestly say that it has replaced my old self mixed oil blends for both my nightly scalp massages and pre-poo. I am a big believer in using essential oils to care for my naturally curly hair as it keeps my scalp clean and healthy, helps condition and protects my delicate curls from the sometimes harsh process of wash days (manipulation is a killer for curls). The blends are expertly mixed, of really high quality and the packaging is not only gorgeous but practical. I love the dropper for the scalp treatment bottle and the pump action for the moisture therapy bottle is so much easier to use without making a mess. Will definitely be buying again....If it ever runs out!" (As reviewed by Elaine)

                The Word on the Street: 

                  • "This oil is truly jam packed full with a lot of natural herbs that are wonderful for scalp stimulation and aiding with healthy hair growth as well... Outside of the product cost and the amount you get, there's truly nothing negative that I gave to say about the actual oil itself. As, anyone can benefit from this product, you just have to know that it is best used sparingly, so that way you will not be left with a greasy scalp (if you do happen to leave it in). However, it can most certainly be used as a pre-poo treatment and then rinsed out before you cleanse your hair of course. Or, it can be added to any of your favorite conditioners to give them an extra boost for sure!" (As reviewed by S.W.)

                    The Word on the Street: 

                      • "The first thing I noticed was the amount of product, it's an 100ml which for a oil specifically for the scalp was more than what I was expecting. It's recommended to massage this product in your hair for 10mins and then to wash out but I like to use this product before I go to bed with my scalp massaging brush. When I first used it I could immediately feel the peppermint oil getting to work (I love the tingly sensation it gives). This oil is perfect for the days when your scalp is feeling itchy or dry and especially good for the days you find yourself suffering from dandruff (it happens to the best of us!)" (As reviewed by Peach)

This made ny hair that was a little straight define and I have thick 4b to 4c hair plus scalp is less itchy now which is a bonus. Sometimes I use it with the original three products (mist, oil and butter) for a good hair week." (As reviewed by Petra)

This keeps my scalp clean, refreshed and controls excess oil production meaning I can protect my curls by washing less frequently. I also use it as a pre-poo to nourish and protect my curls before the harsh process of wash day. Definitely a product I will be repurchasing x" (As reviewed by Elaine)
