My hair responds well to coconut oil and coconut oil products. Now that my temporary colour has faded, I’m left with the bleached highlights which I love! I use mainly sulphate free shampoos. Then Palmer’s went and brought out something NEW, a cleaning oil shampoo! At the Afro Hair and Beauty Live, I spotted it and had to have it. Palmer’s have created a sub-range of sorts called Zero Break™. The range comes under the umbrella of Coconut Oil Formula. When I used Palmer’s Zero Break™ Formula, I had good results.
Palmer’s Zero Break™ has a no sulphates, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, no gluten and no dyes. The range comprises of:
- Zero Break™ Cleansing Oil Shampoo RRP £6.99 (contains Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Tahitian Monoi, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba and Avocado Oils)
- Zero Break™ Strenghtening Oil Conditioner RRP£6.99 (Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoi, Sweet Almond Oil, Macadamia, Jojoba and Avocado Oils)
- Zero Break™ Reconstructor £7.99 (Protective oils + Ceramide-infused cream)
Trialling Zero Break™
I used the range intermittently over to course of two months, with overall good results. The shampoo was very light. I didn’t lather as much a sulphate shampoo, but my hair and scalp felt clean. On occasions when I shampooed twice my hair still didn’t feel stripped. I followed up the conditioner which was also light but worked quickly. It wasn’t too thick. I was able to detangle my hair with the product then.
Usually, I left it to process for a couple minutes, if I had the time I left it for five which is the recommended time. Then, I styled my hair with products my usual styling products from another range.
I used the Reconstructor spray around day 3 of my wash n go to refresh my curls. The first time I used it my hair looked amazing. My curls sprung back into position. They were not weighed down. However, few hours later my hair felt dry around the sections that were bleached. According to instruction the spray should be applied to damp hair.
Since that first use, I’ve altered the way I apply the product. I now follow up with an organic hair oil. Problem solved.
Zero Break™ is great curly hair. If I had to choose, my favourite from the range would be the Reconstructor. I find it tricky to get a refresher spray allows my hair to look and feel its best, usually I get one for the other. I think for thicker hair with a tighter curl patterns, I suspect Zero Break™ will have to be used in conjunction with other styling products in the Coconut Oil. The styling cream or hair lotion will allow braids and twist outs to last longer.
Palmer’s Zero Break™ can be purchased at Superdrug. Visit the Palmer’s online for further details.
