MIZANI Curl Power Event

On Thursday I attended MIZANI's Curl Power Event at L'Oreal HQ in Hammersmith. The event celebrated 10 years of MIZANI and their achievements over the last decade. Also revealed at the event was their newest product - 25 Miracle Milk. It's a lightweight spritz made with Coconut and Fennel Seed Extract with a multitude of styling, moisturising and strengthening benefits (more info here). 

There was a live demonstration by Celebrity stylist Charlotte Mensah. She used the 25 Miracle Milk to prep the model's hair before rolling up small sections with straws. Charlotte finished the set with a blow dryer and picked apart the curls with an Afro comb for a fuller look. The results were absolutely gorgeous and the definition was beautiful. Charlotte suggests to anyone looking to recreate the style, to keep the straws in over night to make the style last longer. I'm definitely more interested in trying straw sets now as a way to get my ends to match my roots.

Alongside live demonstrations, Charlotte shared her hair tips recommending the use of silk scarves at night, the use of natural oils and stressing the importance of a good diet and exercise. There were also hair consultations in which Charlotte personally recommended products to suit each individual attendee's needs. For my transitioning hair as I like to do curly sets Charlotte suggested I try the True Textures Perfect Curl and True Textures Moisture Stretch Cream. I was given them both to try so we'll see how well they work for my hair. I also received a small sample of the 25 Miracle Milk which will be released later in September this year. A lot of products I use already are milk-like so it'll be interesting to see how this compares! 

Have you tried anything by MIZANI?
