Happy New Month!

Product Review; Dr Miracle’s Temple & Nape Gro Balm

Hi Hi,
    So last month I promised I would do a review of Dr Miracle’s Temple and Nape Gro Balm; I’ve tried to be as honest as possible, no bias judgements.

This product contains mineral oil and a few other ingredients I was wary of but it promised growth and my front hair could use a bit of that right now. I used it for a little over a month and honestly, I didn’t really notice any change in the growth of my hair plus I have dull hair so I didn’t notice any improved shine either. I must add that I wasnt exactly religious with the application instructions, half of the time I was using it, my hair was beneath a weave and I just couldn’t be bothered at night. Anyway, I’m not sure I’m going to continue using it and I cant bring myself to throw away the container. As promised on the container, it does have a nice tingling sensation when applied although I made the mistake of applying it on freshly washed hair and a relaxer burn was nothing compared to it.
My hair is in braids right now and I’m pretty optimistic this time, I had smaller braids done compared to the previous ones I’ve had this year, I also braided my hair into 5 cornrows to stretch it a day before I had the braids done.

Have a lovely weekend !
