Subscription boxes are great, I love them for the fact that they introduce me to new brands and products for a fraction of the price. I have subscribed to a handful of lifestyle and beauty boxes but no haircare boxes so I thought its the perfect time to try out Treasure Tress
Treasure Tress is a subscription box service that curates products for kinky/curly hair. I remember when Treasure Tress launched 3 years ago, now they are going from strength to strength from sponsoring events to hosting self-care/love events for young girls.
In each box, you get around 4-5 full-size items for £20. Treasure Tress offers three box options:
- Mini-me, high-quality kid-related products
- Tween, products that allow more experimental styles such as stylers, gels and mousses
- Qween, consists of items such as oils, butters and creams.
Treasure Tress boxes usually have a theme whether it be the box contains a single brand. This box was a blogger takeover by natural hair blogger Simone (HairisSimba). As its Simone's birth month, she had collaborated with Treasure Tress to give us subscribers a taste of her favourite brands.
Simone's hair texture is loose curls which is very different to mine, so I'll love to see to whether these products will work well with my hair.
First up in the box we have a few items from a brand I have not heard of before, Phyto Specific Paris. PhytoSpecific is a French brand that makes products for both natural and relaxed hair.
Included by this brand is a Deep Repair Shampoo, £14/$19, that claims to undo and prevent breakage while restoring strength. We also have a styling butter, £22/$28, its the quaintest tub of styling butter I've ever owned. It contains my favourite ingredient, Shea Butter so you know this product will be very nourishing but it's not as thick as I like my butters to be. Last product by PhytoSpecific is the one I am most excited to try out. It is an oil, Baobab Oil (£30/$40). This oil is a multipurpose oil that can be used on both hair and skin. The oil is very lightweight and does not leave any residue. I've tried a little on my skin and it soaked it immediately my skin felt so smooth after. With these three products alone the price of the items are £64/$87, so already the box is more than worth it.
Next is Shea Moisture's Weightless Hair Masque. First off the scent of this mask is heavenly, very lightly fragranced. I have recently run out of deep conditioner so this has come at the perfect time. This mask is targeted at fine wavy hair so I'm a bit of sceptic whether it'll do anything to my hair.
I love Cantu products so I was glad to see a familiar brand. As much as I've used Cantu I have not used their Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream. I can't wait to try it out with my wash'n'gos as it'll be able to enhance my natural curl pattern.
I've never used mousses in my hair so the Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse is will be another interesting product to see whether I can use it to style my hair. Again I think this is another product that will work well with looser curls.
The last products in the box are bonus products. There are two sample sachets of Design Essentials Almond & Avocado shampoo and conditioner. I have a little box I keep for items for travelling. The last product is a sample size of Keracare Natural Textures Leave In conditioner. I have used this product before and I am a big fan of it and this line. The size is perfect for a sample, (60ml), I wish more samples were this size, I will be adding it to my box of travel samples.
As this is my first box I have to say that it is definitely worth it price wise. I feel that if Treasure Tress were able to allow you to subscribe to boxed related to your hair type they'll be onto a winner as I feel there will be a couple products that might not be used.
