Hair care brand, Dr. Miracles, has revamped their look, fragrance, and added new products to their line....

Press release from Dr. Miracles:

"As a leader in the ethnic personal care industry, Dr. Miracle’s is proud to announce our evolution beyond hair repair. We're driving the brand forward with a comprehensive re-launch motivated by our consumer's desire for NEW easy-to-find products and NEW more nourishing ingredients (like Vitamins A, B3, C, E, Shea Butter, Soy Protein, Almond oil, Jojoba oil). We've even gone one step further with the introduction of a NEW citrusy fragrance and NEW packaging that highlights product benefits, attributes, and key ingredients. We’ve created a brand that truly celebrates our consumers as part of the family." 


New product developments include:

EDGE HOLDING GEL (2OZ, $5.49)—For a strong hold with conditioning shine, look no further. My NEW Edge Holding Gel is blended with Jojoba oil, promising to create long-lasting hold for sleek styles.

ACAI THERMAL PROTECTION STYLER (6OZ, $5.99)—Formulated to protect hair from intense heat styling, my Thermal Protection Styler is rich in Acai Berry extract for moisture as it adds shine. Enjoy our new larger size!

DAILY MOISTURIZING LOTION (6OZ, $3.99)—Enhanced with a blend of Jojoba and Coconut oils, this Daily Moisturizing Lotion is ideal for keeping hair strong, soft, and manageable.

CONDITIONING SHAMPOO (12OZ, $5.99)—My NEW nutrient-rich Conditioning Shampoo is blended with Olive, Sweet Almond and Jojoba oils, leaving strands strong, healthy, and soft to the touch.

LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (8OZ, $5.99)—My nourishing Leave In Conditioner is enriched with a blend of Vitamins A, C, and E to help strengthen as it leaves hair soft, manageable, shiny and bouncy. Perfect to apply before roller setting or for maintaining a gorgeous ‘wet-&-go’ look.

DEEP CONDITIONER (6OZ, $4.99)—Blended with Jojoba oil and Vitamins A & E, my Deep Conditioner revitalizes hair’s natural health, putting an end to breakage and dry scalp. Enjoy our new larger size!

NO-LYE RELAXER ($8.99)—Reformulated with 3X more conditioning agents, I’ve made this No-Lye Relaxer with essential proteins to help prevent breakage and strengthen strands while straightening. I’ve also added Vitamins A and E to promote healthy hair growth and beautiful, relaxed hair.

OIL SHEEN SPRAY (15OZ, $4.99)—I made this Oil Sheen Spray to deliver a light mist of shine with each use. Blended with Shea Butter and Aloe, this spray conditions as it softens and adds radiant shine to any style.

NEUTRALIZING SHAMPOO (17OZ, $5.99)—Blended with Macadamia Nut Oil to provide your hair and scalp with extra protection, my Neutralizing Shampoo is designed to be used with a No Base Crème Relaxer. This neutralizing shampoo will restore moisture to your cuticle and provide conditioning benefits while completing your relaxer process. Special color alert tells you when the relaxer is completely rinsed from your hair.



I'm going to be honest with you, I never used a Dr. Miracles product before.  Whenever I saw their commercials on television, they kinda made me cringe.  I just didn't take them seriously, so therefore I had no interest in purchasing their products.  I'm kinda weird like that.


This isn't one of their hair commercials, they're along the same lines as this one.

I was contacted to try out a few of their products.  I was a little hesitant at first, but when I saw that they had a new "edge control" gel and an acai thermal protection product added to their line, it  piqued my interest.



"Formulated to protect hair from intense heat styling, my Thermal Protection Styler is rich in Acai Berry extract for moisture as it adds shine"

Ingredients:
 Water, Polysorbate-20, Polyquaternium-11, Glycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Polyquaternium-55, Sodium Pca, Isopulegol, Menthol, Panthenol, Triethanolamine, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein Pg-propyl Silanetriol, Citric Acid, Menthone Glycerin Acetal, Menthoxypropanediol, Lauroyl Sarcosine, Propylene Glycol, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Alcohol, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, C10-40 Isoalkylamidopropylethyldimonium Ethosulfate, Parfum (Fragrance), Limone, Linalool, Benxyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal, Coumarin, Citronellol, Hydroxyisohexyl-3-cyclohexene Carboxalehyde, Alphy-isomethyl Ionone, Methylparaben, Methylcloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazololinone
What I thought:  I really wanted to like this heat protecting serum, but I don't think it's right for my hair. When I used this for the first time, it weighed my hair down.  Plus, after I blow dried my hair, it felt as though there was a "coating" on it. It's hard to describe, but my hair felt kinda sticky.  Even when I washed my hair with a clarifying shampoo and used this on my hair the second time, the results were the same as the first.  Le sigh.



Edge Holding Gel $5.49 (2 oz)

For a strong hold with conditioning shine, look no further. My NEW Edge Holding Gel is blended with Jojoba oil, promising to create long-lasting hold for sleek styles.


Ingredients:
 Aqua (Water) Deionized, Ceteareth 25, Sorbitol, Oleath-10, PEG 25 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Aloe Barbabadenesis (Aloe Extract), Jojoba (Buxus Chinensis) Oil , Mel (Honey), Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Propylene Glycol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazodinyl Urea, Fragrance, Benzyl Benzoate, Citral, Citronellol, d-Limonine, Geraniol, Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde, Lanalool


What I thought:  The last time I bought an "edge control" product, it was the ORS Olive Oil Edge Control gel, and it really didn't do anything for my edges.  This Edge Holding Gel from Dr. Miracles works pretty well, and I've been reaching for it everytime I want to smooth my edges down. I like that it isn't greasy and it doesn't leave a flaky residue on my hair. The hold lasts for hours.  I would definitely purchase it again.


Where to buy:  Dr. Miracles products can be purchased on their website, as well as retailers such as Target, Walmart, Walgreens, and Sally's Beauty Supply, just to name a few.
