Mizani True Textures For Curly Hair

Mizani Curly Hair Products

Mizani just released the NEW True Textures collection, a curly hair care system designed to enhance natural curls with advanced technology—adds moisture, controls frizz and defines curl. The PJ in me wants to try it out… so I may check to see if my local Ulta or JCP has it in stock when I get paid. More details are listed below.

“Mizani True Textures Curl Balance Sulfate-Free Shampoo: This gentle, color-safe cream shampoo is formulated to cleanse while keeping natural curls fully moisturized, bouncy and healthy-looking. Lightweight, sulfate-free formula rinses clean while retaining and restoring moisture to detangle and soften curls.

True Textures Cleansing Cream Conditioning Curl Wash: Designed for frequent use, this creamy, low-lather sulfate-free cleanser gently refreshes hair and scalp with a mild foaming action while adding extra conditioning to soften and revitalize curls in between shampoos and deep conditioning treatments. This one-step product combines mild cleansing, detangling and moisture in one.

True Textures Curl Replenish Intense Moisturizing Mask: This ultra-rich, deep penetrating treatment quickly absorbs into strands to revitalize and infuse hair with intense moisture. Perfect for dry, brittle hair, this formula includes essential nutrients to enhance shine, and definition for improved manageability and curl elasticity. Use as an express conditioner or as a weekly intense conditioning treatment.

True Textures Perfect Curl Defining Cream Gel: Designed for loose curls and waves, this lightweight crème-gel re-energizes natural spirals without build-up. Frizz-taming formula boosts natural “lift” to give lasting curl support, memory and control with a satiny finish. Combining the moisture of a styling cream and control of a gel, this product enhances manageability and separation to refresh curls.

True Textures Moisture Stretch Curl Extending Cream: Designed for coiled to extremely tight styles, this moisturizing, curl-smoothing cream helps to loosen and elongate tight, unruly coils without weight or residue. Defines highly textured strands by reducing frizz and shrinkage and revealing flexible, individualized spirals with a clean, touchable finish. Perfect for curl set and finger twist techniques.”

For all those that are super excited about trying this new Mizani line…. you can calm down. Seriously! The shampoos may be sulfate free, but one of them contains sodium hydroxide. That’s right, Sodium Hydroxide! The active ingredient in chemical relaxer. I have no idea the exact amount, but the presence of the chemical is a contradiction to the whole concept of “going natural”. In addition to that chemical, the products include petroleum, mineral oil and parabens. If your natural hair is a fashion statement, then by all means knock yourself out. But, if you care about your hair, then take a pass on this line.

Darling April 3, 2010 at 2:31 pm

Small amounts of sodium hydroxide are present in most facial cleansers and many shampoos. It is used as a neutralizing agent. It isnt ONLY used for chemical relaxers. All ingredients in chemical relaxers arent bad for people. Thanks for letting us know about the sodium hydroxide ingredient; but Proactiv uses sodium hydroxide in their face wash and so does The Body Shop in their tea tree oil facial cleanser. You had the right idea but you didn’t know that the idea you are advocating is just wrong/misinformed.

“Sodium Hydroxide is an agent used in cleansers to optimize performance. You see, when dispersed in water the thickening polymer is thin and has low pH somewhere around 2.5 – 3.5. It only gets thick at a higher pH, say around 5-7. The detergents help increase the pH, but you often need just a little extra boost to get the right thickness. This boost comes from sodium hydroxide. Fortunately, only a small amount is need to increase the pH. A solution of Sodium Hydroxide does have the effect of making your skin feel slippery. However, in a face wash only a small amount is used and it is tied up with other ingredients so it doesn’t react with skin.”

@ Vonnie – We are on the same page :)

@ Natalie – No, the products won’t make your hair curly but it will help to define your natural curls.

@ Vidette – To each… his own *shrugs*
Women who are “Going Natural” are not a monolith and to many of us (online and in real life) it simply means that we no longer relaxing our hair. That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s one thing to suggest that someone research a hair product’s ingredients, but it’s another to come across as passing judgment and providing us with your definition of what “going natural” means. As Darling mentioned… sodium hydroxide is used in many beauty products, not just hair relaxers. In this case, it’s more than likely used to regulate the PH of the products.

It’s not up to me to play the hair product ingredient Police. If you have followed my blog, you know that I believe in people being informed consumers, but I will not be telling a grown woman what she should or should not put in her hair. So if someone wants to get super excited about a Mizani True Textures or any other product mentioned on my blog, let them! TIA.

@ Darling – Thanks for your comment :)

Agreeable we probably should not pass judgement on each other for the hair although sometimes you want say what is going on. Women have enough issues without that. I am excited about the hair care line. It appears that the move to utilize ingredients that are more friendly is because of a) need b) the attention Carol’s Daughter and Miss Jessie’s products (at target) are receiving. That being the case that doesn’t stop anyone from working on their own natural products and increasing the availabilty of products out there. In addtion I think it is good to have options. I have natural hair after I was it with other than soap and water, and dry it under the hair dry, after blowing it out, then utilizing the iron comb and flat iron, some grease etc… It is “natural” or maybe just not a “chemical relaxer” so back to my first point I’ve had wave, a short short afro, braids, short hair, medium hair. But I am happy to be me , not definied by my hair, and really grateful there are products out there that I can use :)

I have been using this line for about 2 months now and I am in love with it. I have type IV hair and it is right up my alley. Whereas my hair had a tendency to feel “crunchy” and look frizzy before, this line has really done it justice. I am pleased to have healthy, bouncy, well-defined curls. I am truly happy Mizani came out with this line!

Robin Pinkard May 30, 2010 at 4:53 pm

I live in Miami and just recently went natural. Does any one know where to buy Mizani True Textures from? My local hair stores dont sell the true textues line

newtothescene June 4, 2010 at 4:54 pm

I purchased my mizani true textures from Ulta. Not sure if you’ve heard of it but they are all over the Chicago area.

newtothescene June 9, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Has anyone ever heard of or tried Eco Styling Gel? Just curious if it really works as good as the videos show.

just tried it June 21, 2010 at 10:01 pm

I got it from beauty brands, I am waiting on my hair to dry to but I hope I like it!

sham July 3, 2010 at 2:17 pm

You can purchase all Mizani products at Smartstyle thats the salon found in every Super Walmart!!!!!!
Before you buy the bottle that cost anywhere from $15-20 you might wanna ask them for a sample ……since the products are new they all got samples which contains a sachet of all the true textures collection..Best of luck ladies!!!!!

I purchased the shampoo, the cleansing cream and the moisture stretch. I do like the shampoo and cleasing cream, but I am not sure about the moisture strech. I stopped relaxing about 6 months ago and had been wearing tree braids, but decided to just go with my natural hair. I’ve been researching natural hair for months and am surprised at the wealth and depth of information on the web. I do the daily wash and go and had planned on doing the same with the moisture strech; I found it doesn’t work for me. Based on Mizani’s hair scale, I am VI/VII-their product took a really long time to dry and did not give me coils or curls. I’ll stick with the cleansing products, but not the moisture stretch.

Joy July 21, 2010 at 8:12 am

OK!!! So a hairstylist friend of mine, gave me a bottle of this JUNK to try. She wants to offer more services/products for naturalistas and she wanted my opinion of the new Mizani line. I figured I would share this experience with the rest of the curly world. Here it goes……DON’T waste your money. I applied this to wet hair around 5:30am. It is now 8:05am and my hair looks as though I stuck my finger in a light socket! It has completely zapped the moisture from my hair. It did not clump the curls, instead it created a mass of tiny little girls (ie…mini fro)! There was also a small bit of flaking. Not sure why this occured as I used a clarifying shampoo prior to applying the product. Trust me curlies…..don’t waste your money on this!!! I should have known, after looking at the ingredients, that this was going to be a bad hair day! Can’t wait to go home this evening and wash this out of my hair! UGHHHHHHH!!!

Well, I’m in transition from a curly perm and found that Perfect Curl gives my hair a curlier look than when I was getting the curl. I love the look and the feel. My hair looks thick and healthy. Just wish I could find this product in Canada. Guess I’ll be making a run for the border soon. Our Super Walmart does not carry the product.

I am having too much curly and rough hair . Is this work for me or not.?

Boricua*star October 1, 2010 at 9:57 am

this blog is so informal! I love it! I just want to say real quick that for a styling product yall should use Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Hold Smoothie. You can get it at target for $9.99. It can be used on All-natural hair types. It really moisturizes hair and imparts a shine and bounce to curls. It can also be used as a deep conditioner. I’m half black and half puerto rican and have crazy thick curly hair thats fluffs whenever I try to style it but this really helps alot. I’m thinkng about trying out Miss.Jessie”s products but idk yet. let me know how they work out ! =]

Mizani like many “natural hair” companies out there is just jumping on the band wagon. They’ve realised that the members of the fast growing natural hair movement are searching for products that work and they are throwing their cards on the table. This line is about HAIR STYLE and not HAIR CARE look at the ingredients and then decide if it’s worth it to have a nice twist out for a while… because the results won’t last.

Carly December 3, 2010 at 2:03 pm

I have used Mizani True Texture for Curly Hair on my daughter because it came recommended by the hair stylist at Ulta. She has soft, tight, curly hair. I had been using Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk and I liked it at first but felt likt it was drying her hair out. I have been using this stuff for 1+ months and I love it. It has a very subtle sweet smell and leaves hair silky and moisturized and no build up.

BronzeB December 28, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Hello to all, I have been transitioning now for 8 months and well I have been using the Mizani Perfect Curl on my wavy hair and I really like the definition it gives. Just today I purchased the Cleansing Cream and the Curl Replenish- masque and I have been getting a lot of compliments on my hair. My hair is short on one side and long on the other so I haven’t offically chopped of the ends due to I like the length. I must say that two strand flat twisting has held up using the Perfect Curl and also using my own moisturers in between (Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, EVOO, ect cetea) between uses. I purchased Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave- In Conditioner as well but find that I dont really use it but instead I used the Mizani Coconut Shouffle Light Moisturizer and it does my hair just great. My hair is very soft, light and smells great at least that’s what my old man says. Word of advise if your going natural at first you may have to try different products due to we al have different types of textures going on in different spot and I know personally myself I have color and love it blond and platinum so I will not be going back to no relaxer. Let’s keep it going ladies so that this fad will reach to the heart of our black women and save a lot of money and stress.

Carolyn December 29, 2010 at 10:49 pm

Thank you! Bronze B for sharing the information . I bought the Mizani texture product on December 28,2010. I had the stylist cut my hair very short. The products which were posted should keep my hair from drying out. The relaxer should be completely grown out of my hair by the end of January.

Stacee January 10, 2011 at 12:42 pm

I used this last night for the first time on my daughters partially relaxed hair (I am taking her from relaxer back to natural) and it made her hair so soft and manageable…i loved it!!!!

Curley Sue May 11, 2011 at 4:39 pm

At the end of March my beautician gave me a wave noveau, which I always get and can last for up to 3 months. I have to get it done only because of the new growth. I recently went to have my hair washed and trimmed. My hair was washed and conditioned with the Mizani True Textures products and afterward she put in the curl cream and something else from the line and it completely reversed the wave noveau, leaving my hair hard as a rock, frizzy, very brittle, and extremely dry. She tried this without my permission as my back was turned. I was not a happy camper. I went home and tried to wash the stuff out, but to no avail. My hair has not been the same since. I won’t be returning anyway as I was charged entirely too much for nothing, and if this is the case, I can buy that junk myself and that ain’t happening.

valicious October 1, 2011 at 5:51 pm

ladies Im also natural and have tight coil hair. Young lady at my job recommend the Mizani Tru Texture product so ill try a couple of the product to see how my hair will react to it. Just remember we have to find what works best for our beautiful black hair.

Lillian Gourdine March 2, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Everyone’s hair texture is different. What doesn’t work for you, might work for me. I love this products.
