Protective Style Recovery

Featured Product: Belle Amour Blends Hemp Seed Styling Cream

In this tutorial I am going to show you how I recover my friend Mallorie’s hair after nearly three months in a full sew-in. I will also review Belle Amour Blends’ Hemp Seed Styling Cream.

Belle Amour Blends Hemp Seed Styling Cream features hydrating organic ingredients such as shea butter, hemp seed oil, and mango and papaya oils. What I love most about this one is that there’s flax seed gel and aloe vera gel in the formula so you only have to use this one product instead of mixing a moisturizer and a gel together! The 4 oz is just $8.99 at Belle Amour Blends.

Indie Spotlight: Belle Amour Blends

We all have our tried and true DIY recipes or store-bought brands, but I love love love small and independent gems selling awesome all-natural beauty products online. Belle Amour Blends contacted me about reviewing her Whipped Butter Creme, which is loaded with Aloe! She knew, from watching my hair vids, that Aloe was my fav for sealing my hair, so she thought it would be a perfect match.

Ingredients: Aloe Butter, Avocado Butter, Mango Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Olive Oil, Argan Oil, Black Currant Oil and this list with an explanation of each ingredient and why it was used.

Pretty on point, huh?

Her site won me over as soon as I saw “No mineral oil, no parabens, no chemicals, no sulfates.”

Sold!

I was due to wash my hair when I got the package, so I used it immediately. I was also able to use it on my skin and it didn’t feel like it was sitting on top of it. Same with my hair. Extremely healthy, healing and penetrating ingredients. The cool part is she is more than willing to cater to your hair and skin needs by swapping any oils or fragrances you may have issues with.

And a little goes a long way. I only had the sample jar and was able to use it on my hair for a few weeks.

Visit Belle Amour Blends here. And find the Whipped Butter Creme here. Show her small business some love if you’re looking for a new butter to try! <3

I LOVE all of my products! They are legit!!!

My husband and I think the Cocoa Kisses Body Butter and Whipped Butter Creme are amazing. Long lasting, super moisturizer, and his extra dry skin improved in a week. The Honey Brown Sugar Scrub is perfect and the Rejuvenating Clay Cleanser mask got rid of my blackheads! I'm a little obsessed, thank you for making such wonderful, natural and elegant products. I'm down with supporting this business! Bless you.

First let me start by talking about the packaging. I LOVEEEEEE IT!!!! Even though the containers are very simple they are uberrrrr cute!!

I bought the Luscious Leave-In Conditioner and Rejuvenating Clay Cleanser. I have only used the Luscious Leave-in Conditioner so far and must confess I loveee it. It's super moisturizing. Being that it is soo thick a little goes a long way. I got one for my mom as well, she has really long dreads and she found that with other products she had to use a lot to moisturize her hair but this was quite the contrary with the leave-in. She used very little and it did the job. I haven't used the Rejuvenating Clay Cleanser yet but I'm sure I'm going to love it....can't wait for my next wash day :)

I bought four 4 oz Whipped Butter Cremes during the Black Friday sale and I was so glad I did! Your products are perfect. I have dry patches on certain parts of my leg which get worse in the Winter. Nothing I try works past 6 hours. I tried you Whipped Butter Creme on freshly washed skin and no more dry patches! The products are so light but rich that they are perfect year round. I appreciate the personalized service. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Hi there just wanted to say a massive thank you again for my Whipped Butter Creme. I started using on the day of arrival and I have fallen in love, I have used it on my kinky curly hair, on my eczema prone skin, my daughter's skin, and her straight hair and we love it.

Your butter is one of the best products ever, thank you so much. I will continue to buy it from you and I love the quick delivery time from the US to the UK.

My skin feels so soft after using specially straight after a shower and my hair is looking great thanks again. I will be recommending your products to friends.

Cheers Rita

I lost the comment card but I've been living with your heavenly scented products for about a week or so now and I love them. There is such care taken in the packaging, labeling and in the product itself; one can tell this is truly a labor of love.

I am enjoying my butter and my leave in. I may have to ask you where you get the honey vanilla scent it's becoming my favorite smell.

Thank you so much for your kindness and your creativity. I will definitely be buying more when it's time to re-up.

I just wanted to reach out to you again and tell you that I just received your products. I plan to wash my hair tomorrow but if the smells and consistency are any indication of what the products will feel like then I will definitely be repurchasing your products. The smells are INCREDIBLE. I'm not going to lie I wanted to eat it until I read the adorable card you included on the back about the" Top 10 Things to Look Out for After Receiving Belle Amour Blends".

I was so sad when I found out my products were getting delayed but once they got here, and I opened the package I was like OMG this is amazing. You are such a sweet person and made me feel so much better when I emailed you about my package. So many business owners don't do that.

I keep opening and closing the jars just so I can smell the product. Your ingredients and prices are amazing also, since so many other sellers on the market want to charge an arm and a leg for half the ingredients. Thank you so much for making such amazing products and being honest. I know that you will be successful because of your personality and the quality of your products.

I plan to keep ordering as long as you keep selling because I loved the way how soft my skin felt when I used your products for the first time. You really need to start making bigger sizes because 8oz just seems like a tease and I want more of your amazing products LOL.

Rejuvenating Clay Cleanser and Luscious Leave-In Conditioner Review by Patricia Falona

It makes me so happy to see women going into business for themselves and I support them in anyway I can, which is why I chose to sample two products from Belle Amour Blends. Belle Amour Blends is owned and operated by @CallHerHoney, who is the sweetest girl ever. I have been following her on Twitter for like, forever and noticed that she had launched her own line of natural hair and skin care products, and decided to give it a shot. I was sent two samples products; The Rejuvenating Clay Cleanser and The Luscious Leave-In Conditioner. First of all, I was super impressed with the packaging. The products were sealed TIGHT and there was no leakage at all, which is great because no one wants to purchase a product only to have half of it leak out by the time it reaches them.

The Rejuvenating Clay Cleanser:

*Products are made-to-order. Oils vary upon request.
**Due to the naturalness of this product, be sure to store in a fridge to extend the shelf life.”

To use on hair: Dilute 1 tablespoon of clay with 2 tablespoons of water or aloe vera juice and mix well. Wet hair completely and section into 4 to 6 parts. Apply mixture using fingertips, making sure to massage into scalp and coat hair strands. Twist each section and apply conditioning cap for up to 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and style.
*See more detailed instructions here

To use on skin: Dampen face (and body if desired) with water and rub desired amount onto skin, avoiding sensitive areas like the eyes and mouth. Allow the clay to dry (15 to 20 minutes) and rinse with warm water. Moisturize as needed.

Ingredients: Water, vegetable glycerin, Australian beige clay, French pink clay, Zeolite clay, Rhassoul clay, safflower oil, ylang ylang essential oil, burdock root extract, horsetail extract, nettle root extract, various essential and fragrance oils*

I really like this product because even though I’ve never had much of a problem with acne and breakouts, blackheads have always been my biggest problem, especially on my nose for some reason. I put lots of oils in my hair and sometimes whenever I’m too lazy to tie my hair up at night, the oil from my hair transfers to my pillow and give me nasty blackheads. Anyway, I like to do clay masques at least twice a week. I used this product as I normally would any other clay masque, right after I came out of the shower, so that my pours would still be open. First, let me say that I love the eucalyptus mint scent. It’s so relaxing. After about twenty minutes, the clay cleanser had dried and it was ready to come off. After I was done rinsing, I noticed that a couple stubborn blackheads had surfaced - the clay cleanser was pulling these toxins out of my skin. Unfortunately, I have a horrible habit of picking at my skin and squeezing blackheads, but I fought the urge to squeeze the now visible blackheads, and let the clay cleanser do it’s job. I waited 24 hours before I used the clay cleanser again. When I used it for the second time, I noticed that after I was done rinsing, not only had most of the blackheads had fallen out on their own, but you couldn’t even tell where they had fallen out from because the clay cleanser had my pores shrink back in no time. I like this product, and I will definitely be purchasing this one. You can also use it on your hair, as well, which is really cool. I haven’t tried it in my hair yet, but once I do, I will update this review.


Luscious Leave-In Conditioner:

“Details: This rich and creamy conditioner is the perfect elixir to add moisture and softness to your hair. Blended with coconut oil and honey powder, this mixture gives your hair a silky texture, perfect for those who enjoy the carefree wash-n-go style.

To use: Coat strands with desired amount of product, making sure not to heavily saturate the roots. Do not rinse and style hair as usual.

Ingredients: Aloe vera juice, glycerin, avocado butter, shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, safflower oil, raw honey powder, vitamin E oil, various essential and fragrance oil*

*All products are made-to-order. Oils vary upon request.”

I LOVE this stuff and I haven’t stopped using it on my hair since I got it. My favorite thing about it is that it’s not heavy at all. It’s everything a leave-in conditioner should be; it moisturizes your hair without weighing it down. I got this product in the honey-vanilla, which smells amazing. I like to seal my hair after I wash it, and I feel like sealing with hair butters just weighs it down, but this product is perfect for sealing. What I do is, after I wash my hair, I let it air dry until it’s damp and then I apply the Luscious Leave-In Conditioner to seal in the moisture. Once my hair is dry, I dont even have to add any product because my hair is moist, shiny and my frizzies are tamed. I plan on purchasing this product in addition to the clay cleanser, because I’ve heard that the clay cleanser is great for defining curls.

I just got my two all natural hair products from Miss Honey over at Belle Amour Blends - omg!

I got the Leave-in Conditioner & the Silky Butter Pomade, both in Caribbean Burst. LOVE LOVE LOVE the smell! I tried a bit of the pomade on my hair and I got lots of shine with no heaviness feeling. It’s really light (hence it being named Silky) and a little goes a long way.

When the next wash comes around I will definitely make a second post for the leave in conditioner; but judging from the pomade, I won’t be disappointed!

You haven’t got yours yet? WTF you waiting for?!

Thank you very much for letting me discover your curly world! I've been straightening my hair for many years, and I also usually swim, so you can imagine how bad I usually treat my curls!

I stopped straightening my hair some months ago and the main problem was dryness. But Belle Amour's Silky Butter Pomade is absolutely working for me. It keeps my hair moisturized! I even use it before going swimming so chlorine doesn't damage my ends too much and I can really feel the difference.

My hair is now smoother and it is not as dry as it used to be. It might be the large amount of natural products it contains, because I've tried so many products before that did not really work! I will definitely keep on using it!
