Back in October I purchased the entire Pattern Beauty collection that was developed by the great Tracee Ellis Ross. I was thrilled to try this product because my hair at the time was in dire need of some much needed TLC. I was still straightening my hair my hair at the time, so my first couple of washes with Pattern Beauty weren’t showing me any major results. In fact, the only results I was seeing at the time were heat damage.
I continued to rehab my hair for the next five months with a few other products, that I’ll mention in later posts, and have been heat-free since January. In May, I once again picked up my Pattern Beauty products to determine if they could really give me the wash and go results I was dying to see and was pleasantly surprised.
My wash and go turned out phenomenal just from using the Hydration Shampoo, the Heavy Conditioner, and the Leave-In Conditioner. My hair was soft, well moisturizered and easy to detangle. Swipe through the photos to see my results. My hair still has a good amount of heat damage in the front, although my hair has always been a looser curl at the front even before I got my first relaxer, so that may not ever change. However, the curls at the back of my head were luscious, juicy and springy, a sign that the Pattern Beauty hair care line did just what it was meant to do.
The Pattern Beauty collection has three different conditioners, designed to best fit your curl pattern. The Medium conditioner is designed for both curly and coily hair textures. My hair is 3B/3C, so I initially used this conditioner, but I quickly realized I would need the next conditioner in the line to achieve the results I desired. My favorite conditioner is the Heavy conditioner, that is designed for coily and tighter textures. If you’re a 3C texture, this is likely the shampoo that will provide you with the best results. It’s formulated to provide serious hydration to your hair, and allows for easy detangling and great curl clumping. The Intensive conditioner is perfect for those with tighter textures, and was formulated for those with Type 4 hair. It’s also perfect for low porosity hair that often struggles to retain moisture. There are a few different hair serums offered by Patten Beauty, but I haven’t tried those quite yet!
I give Pattern Beauty four out of five lightening bolts. I love the way my hair feels after using the products, and I love how easy it is to detangle my hair as I’m washing it, and even post-wash. However, at this time there aren’t any styling products available from Pattern Beauty. When I use a product, for the first time at least, I prefer for all of the products that I am using to be from the same line. I’m hearing that styling products are in the works and will hopefully be available soon from Pattern Beauty. When they are available, you can be sure that I’ll be purchasing them to try and review!
