REVIEW: MAYA Black Gold Of The Sun*

June 3, 2016


A few weeks ago BecomeMaya emailed me asking me if I would like to receive a product of theirs to try and possibly review. I'm awful at keeping my hair in good condition, especially since I struggle with Trichotillomania, so I jumped at the chance to receive something from a company I've never heard of before.

I have thick hair which is neither straight or curly. It's very dry and I have a lot of fly-aways due to me pulling my hair out. 'Maya Black Gold Of The Sun Hair Crème has a unique blend of 12 natural oils and extracts that repair hair, provide soft, strong, healthy hair, making your curls easy to manage, adding lustre and shine.' Sounds too good to be true, right? 

Because of the 'unique blend' of oils and extracts, this product has a scent that is not something I've ever experienced before. The smell is quite sweet and extremely strong but for someone like me, who loves natural oils it was perfect! Maya Black Gold Of The Sun contains the following oils and extracts:

Shea Butter

Flame Tree Extract
Tomato Oil
Carrot Oil
Olive Oil
Argan Oil
Marula Seed Oil
Baobab Oil
Cedar Wood Bark Oil
Soyabean Oil
Rice Extract
Radish Root Extract




The consistency of this product is so strange - I love it! It's almost like a jelly but when I touched it the product melted away quickly and turned to oil which I them applied to the tips of my hair, which is where most of my problems lie. 

I used this product on semi-dry hair when I got out of the shower. When I used this product it left my hair feeling so soft, shiny and it looked a lot healthier than normal. My hair formed more of a wave than usual which I loved. After a few weeks of using Maya Black Gold Of The Sun my hair was less damaged, however I find that when I use this product my hair gets greasier a lot quicker than usual (maybe after 2 days) which is a bit of a nuisance since I HATE WASHING MY HAIR. 

Overall I did really enjoy using this product. The smell alone makes me love it! Apart from the fact that it makes my hair greasy a lot quicker than I would like, it really helps condition and moisturize my hair and leaves it looking and feeling a lot healthier than usual. I can't tell you exactly how it works on curly hair (I may get my little sister to try it and keep you updated) but for me, it really does work! You can buy this product in the 55ml pot for only £5! find it here.
