Men have no fear, J Carter Men is here and they’re saving the day with their products for modern natural men. J Carter Men produces a natural line of hair care and grooming products. Their products are aimed towards modern men with diverse hair textures and styles. The line doesn’t just target African American males, but men all over the world.
J Carter Men’s line features seven great products: Drench, Curl Krush, Curl Up, Heal & Hydrate, Mane Tame, Texture X-Tra, and Wave Krave. All of these products have natural, vegan ingredients. Some of the ingredients that are used include avocado oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, soy oil, and shea butter. The products are designed to mix and combine to aid different hairstyles. J Carter Men breaks down their usage into four separate hair groups which include Curly, Natural Textured, Locks, and Waves. These same products can be used to aid in beard maintenance as well.
At first look, the packaging for J Carter Men products looks like something that would be found in a luxury salon or a spa. Inside the bottles, the actual product continues this theme with sophisticated scents and fluid consistency. Normally, natural products have a distinctive smell, most of the time a tropical scent. Their consistency is either thick or creamy. Fortunately, J Carter Men leaves the users hair smelling like a hair professional just finished putting the final touches on their follicles.
Depending on where a man fits into each of J Carter Men’s, there’s a combination of products that are recommended for usage. For example, a man who would fit into the Natural Textured group would benefit more from using the Drench, the Curl Up, and the Curl Krush products. When combined, these products will define and highlight a man’s natural hair texture. Similar to the way that using the Drench, Curl-Up, and Curl Crush will give a man defined, and moisturized curls.
Out the lineup of great products that J Carter Men has provided, two items in particular stand out the most. The Drench and the Heal & Hydrate seem like the best and most essential products to have amongst all hair textures. The Drench adds moisture to hair, which is key in hair maintenance; it also activates texture patterns. The Heal & Hydrate uses natural oils to combat dry scalp and dandruff. Honestly, they’re a hard combo to compete with.
The downside to J Carter Men is the fact that they do not offer shampoos or conditioners. Shampoos and conditioners are the foundations of hair care, only because nice hair comes from clean and healthy hair. Most of J Carter Men’s products help with moisture, but they don’t offer to cleanse or repair damaged hair. Men will have to secure a base shampoo and a good conditioner, or co-washing agent. At least until J Carter Men decides to release these products in the future.
All of J Carter Men’s products retail for $9.99 and can be found online at J Carter Men‘s website or nationwide at Sally Beauty and Ricky’s NYC stores.
