Blue Magic Review

As you saw here I hopped on the bandwagon and purchased some Blue Magic grease. I have been using this as part of my daily moisturise and seal routine. Why did I purchase grease? Because I heard it provides excellent moisture and was reccommended by other ladies who are transitioning, see here. Also I ran out of Bee Mine's luscious balanced moisturiser (which is £10 which seemed a lot of money after Christmas).




It is sold at Pak Cosmetics for £1.99
Description: Blue Magic Conditioner Hair Dress is formulated to give effective hair conditioning for days without being greasy. Keeps hair natural and lustrous. Promotes a healthier hair and scalp conditon. Use as often as you like.
Ingredients: Petrolatum (i know), Lanolin, Lecithin, Mineral Oil, Fragrance, Green 6, Violet 2.
Thoughts: My thoughts on this product are 50-50, the positives are also the negatives. Confusing? I'll tell you what I mean. Two positives about it are one, it is quite a heavy product so it does coat the hair strand leaving it shiny. Two, for the price it is ALOT of product, 340g and it comes in many varieties- you can buy Blue Magic coconut oil/argan oil/indian hemp- if you did purchase this product you wouldn't have to repurchase for a while. HOWEVER two negatives are, it is alot of product and if used quite a lot you could have product build up and it could leave your hair with a greasy feeling. Second, the price is good but the ingredients are not and some may wonder if there are any long-term consequences of using this product. My conclusion is as a moisturiser it does the job, but there are many other moisturisers that do a better job. I reckon I will be returning to my Bee Mine moisturiser. I think this product would be better used as a styler when I'm natural for braidouts and twistouts. One other thing I love is the smell, it reminds me of childhood :). I give it an average rating of 3/5.

  1. Thanks for reviewing!! I love the smell too (and the smell of Dax grease!) cause that's what my mom used on my hair as a child!

  2. I completely agree with your review. I feel the exact same way. I have a jar of the Blue Magic Coconut grease. I'm not sure why I even bought it. It's too heavy for my hair. I agree with you two, it is a nostalgic smell. Even though I don't use it I do like to open it up and smell it every now and then.

  3. You're welcome Shika and Ty it's true it is a bit heavy so I may just apply it to my ends only.

  4. I use Blue Magic Indian hemp. Most recently I started taking weekly swim classes and my hair is soooo dry from the chlorine and frequest wetness. I tried pure Virgin Olive Oil for a while but by the next morning, my hair had soaked up the oil. I grease my scalp while its wet very very lightly with Blue Magic and I also grease it throughly. I don't over do it, therefore I don't have buildup or heaviness. I love it. My hair smells good, is nice and thick, and styles easily. Also, less burden now after I come out of the pool.

    1. I saw that in the shop and I was tempted to get it. Thanks for the tip I might try it when I go into the pool next because I have no use for the 2 jars I have at home lol

    1. Hi Deborah I don't think there's one product that can grow your hair. Blue Magic did not grow my hair. To thicken my hair or promote growth I have used castor oil 1-2x a week on my edges. Some people use biotin- but I personally prefer not to use any growth aid especially as there could be side effects

    3. Hi Debra you can apply castor oil 1-2x a week to promote hair thickness. But I know of nothing to grow your hair except for having a good regimen and caring for your face. I have no idea about face products! Hhj
