Madison's Haircare Regimen with My Honey Child Haircare Products



First let me begin by saying that this is NOT a sponsored post. All products were purchased with my own money. I've been meaning to write this post for some time now but I'm finally getting around to it. Like my mom would say "better late than never". Living in Colorado it's hard to find products that are made for our hair type. Being African American or Caribbean American as I like to call us, our hair is a mixture of textures. When I lived in NYC because of the humidity, my hair I noticed not only grew faster, I also didn't have to worry much about moisture, unlike here in Colorado with the lack of humidity our hair gets very very dry and I'm always having to apply products. I have tried numerous products with very little results that I like. I did a post a few years ago about the Shea Moisture kids line which is still one of my most read haircare product post. Unfortunately we didn't particularly like Shea Moisture so it sent us back to searching again. When I use products in my hair I want it to have as little chemicals as possible. I tend to look for natural products to use in our natural hair. After much Google search and reading tons of online reviews I happened onto My Honey Child haircare products. I placed an order, got it within a week and fell in love.


Now this is what prompted me to finally write this post. We were in NYC not too long ago and I had Madison's hair in a beaded protective style and I was asked quite a few times about it. One of the question that I was also asked was "what do you use in her hair?". A lot of people are under the misconception that all African Americans have very kinky hair that feels like steel wool or that if it's of average length we must be doing something different. Au-contraire! I may have mentioned before that most Caribbean Americans are of mixed heritage. Madison is a mixture of European, African and Carib Indian descent. Her curls might not be too loose but it's also not tightly coiled. So where does My Honey Child come in?


As I mentioned, there is a lack of humidity in Colorado, I actually think it might be nonexistent so our hair tends to get really really dry, before I found My Honey Child I would constantly have to reapply product after product trying to keep it moisturized. What that left me with was hair that had so much build up that it was disgusting. That also meant that I had to constantly keep on washing her hair as well to get rid of most of the build up. I wanted something that would keep her hair moisturized and something that I won't have to keep on reapplying every single day. When I heard of the My Honey Child Type 4 Hair Creme, I just had to give it a try and boy was I amazed once I placed my order and received it. I purchased the Type 4 Hair Kit which included the Hair Creme, Olive You Deep Conditioner and O'Honey Curl Mist.  Included with the kit for free is a 2oz Maki-Da-Da Scalp Therapy which is an amazing hair oil. The ingredients in the hair oil is Soybean Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Peppermint Oil. I constantly used the hair oil so it didn't last too long.


Now here is something that you may not know. I only wash Madison's hair about once every 2 months. You probably think that her hair must be really dirty and stinky. That's another misconception. While I only wash her hair infrequently, I don't wash her hair with shampoo. I co-wash her hair with the Olive You Deep Conditioner. I found that when I would wash her hair, her hair became even more dry. I found out that I was actually washing away all the oils and stripping her hair. Co-washing her hair has kept the moisture in so much better and the Olive You Deep Conditioner not only rehydrates but leaves her hair smelling amazing. Once I finish co-washing I then use the Aloe Vera Leave in Hair Treatment. I use it on her wet hair and also dry hair in between washes.


So why doesn't her hair stink or why isn't her hair dirty? Well between washes I mist her hair with the O'Honey Curl Mist. I would apply a little of the Type 4 Hair Creme and mist her hair throughout. It does an amazing job keeping her hair moisturized which is what I'm striving for. There was one other product that I ended up getting as well. I purchased the Coconut Hair Milk. I used to use a  hair milk from Carol's Daughter and I have to admit that it was horrible. It left her hair feeling rather coarse. I'd read so much rave reviews about it but it didn't work out for us at all.


Whenever I do a protective style in Madison's hair I always make sure to use the coconut milk in conjunction with all the other products. So far so good and as I've mentioned, it's been more than a year since I've been using My Honey Child haircare products. Now while you may find less expensive products, they didn't work for us. And while these have worked wonders for us, they might not work for you. The hair creme because of it's consistency lasts a lot longer than the other products but they do last quite a long time.


I've been very happy with them and it's almost time for me to place another order. Now if you're African American and you're reading this and there's another product that you swear by, I'd love to hear about it. I'm not averse to trying new products in my hair. If it works for me then I'd love to try it in Madison's as well. I've been natural after doing the big chop a year ago myself so I use this in my hair along with Madison's. So let us know which has worked for you.

    1. I've never heard of Dream Kidz and will have to look into it myself too. If it's commercially made I might however pass on it since those products usually contain a little too much of what I don't want in our hair.

  2. I hate what Colorado does to my hair! I'm always looking for new products to try because I've yet to find something that continuously works for me and my hair type. I prefer natural products so I'll certainly be looking into this!

    1. Oh I just love this one. So far I've not had a problem with it and it works really well on our hair.

  3. I might have to look into these and see if any would work with Christine's hair.

    1. The Hair Creme might be a little too heavy for Christine's hair but besides that the other products would work really well. There are a few other products that I'm going to try as well and I'll let you know how they work for us. :)

  4. This sounds like an amazing product! I'll have to keep this post, as my babies will be mixed, and who knows if they'll pull more of their daddy's hair! :) her hair is beautiful, just as she!

    1. Thank you so much Chloe for the compliment. This is an amazing product for mixed kids for sure. There are a few other products as I mentioned above to Angela since her daughter Christine is also mixed. I'll be giving them a try myself.

  5. I've never heard of My Honey Child before now and that's something I worry about when it comes to my hair as well. My hair gets really really dry and it sucks up everything that I put in it. I wonder if this would work on my hair type. My hair is mixed so I'm thinking that it might. I'm going to check out the site and see what else they have available that I can possibly get as well. Thank you so much. BTW Madison's hair always look so healthy, now I see why.

    1. Hi Adrienne, I'm sure that it will work on your hair type as well. It works wonders on our hair and I still have yet to meet another product that has worked this well. It's why we've been using it for this long.

  6. I do know a lot about product buildup!
    We have moisture here but very dry winters. Well, you know the northeast! It can be very difficult. I know our hair is different but mine gets quite wild, to be honest.

    1. It's dry here all year round and I wish that we had the moisture. I think a few of her products would work great in your hair but not the hair creme. It'll be too heavy but maybe if you use it in very small quantities it might work for you in the winter.

  7. It's nice when you find a product you want to sing about from the rooftops. I love that is has an Aloe leave-in treatment in the line.

    1. Yes it's not that very often you get those and this is one that we sure do love. The leave in conditioner is really pretty good.

  8. Madison has such beautiful hair and even I've wondered what you've used. My hair tends to dry out as well and I actually have coarse hair. I would love to try this and since you say it lasts a long time, I guess the price is worth it.

    1. Thank you Zara and I think if you have coarse hair that just sucks moisture like crazy then you'd love this. Madison hair sucks up everything and this really works for us.

  9. I have never heard of this brand before. I am going to research this because I'm always looking for products to keep my hair moisturized. Madison your hair always look so healthy so it has to be working for you. I have been using Jane Carters Solution but it's not working for me.

    1. We've tried Jane Carter Solution as well and I actually still have some of her product here in our house. I usually pass them on to the boys since they don't care what they use in their hair. I think we've tried just about everything and this is the one that has worked for us.
