This multi-purpose product boasts 25 benefits and has a cult-like following. All that hype is for a good reason—it really works.
Not sure how you should use the Mizani 25 Miracle Milk on your dark brown hair? Ashley Brown, Mizani artist and brand ambassador, is here to school you on how this leave-in wonder (which now comes in an even larger bottle) will completely reshape your hair routine. Read our Mizani 25 Miracle Milk review and consider yourself educated!
The Ultimate Mizani Hair Milk Review
Mizani’s 25 Miracle Milk is a leave-in treatment, not a leave-in conditioner. Brown says that’s a very important distinction.
The main difference between a leave-in conditioner and leave-in treatment, one word—technology! Leave-in treatments are the new age version of leave-in conditioners.”
In other words, leave-in treatments are like leave-in conditioners on steroids. They can be better equipped to help treat some of your hair woes as well as to condition and soften your strands.
“This leave-in treatment is going to provide many more benefits to the hair than a standard leave-in conditioner,” the stylist explains. “Some of these benefits include improved manageability and detangling, style priming, helps prevent heat damage, and frizz control, just to name a few.”
Because of the myriad of benefits Mizani’s 25 Miracle Milk boasts, Brown encourages everyone to incorporate the product into their hair routine.
“I am a firm believer that everyone can benefit from a leave-in treatment...Whether the needs of your hair require the leave-in treatment to provide support for weak and or damaged, hair, or you want to be proactive about the health of your hair,” Brown explains. “We are so proactive about using preventative and maintenance products for our skin care regimen, we should actively be doing more of this for our hair care regimen.”
Everyone can benefit from a leave-in treatment, but what sets Mizani’s 25 Miracle Milk apart from all of the other formulas that flood the beauty supply store? It’s one product that actually works for everyone.
“Mizani 25 Miracle Milk stands in a class of its own...This is the one product, that no matter what type of hair texture you have—be it straight, wavy, frizzy, curly, coily, kinky, or all of the above—it can benefit you,” Brown says.
How To Use Mizani 25 Miracle Milk
As with any product, how and how much of the product you use depends on your hair type, texture, and concerns. Brown suggests everyone begin by incorporating the 25 Miracle Milk into their routines after shampoo and conditioning but before detangling. This will create a great styling base for any hair type and texture. If you feel like you need customized advice about how to incorporate the product into your routine, your stylist will be able to provide some guidance.
“Adjusting the amount of product applied to the hair allows Mizani 25 Miracle Milk to cater to any and every texture of hair. It’s of the utmost importance to assess the challenges your hair may be having,” Brown says. “The 25 Miracle Milk does not necessarily ‘replace’ any of your current hair care products, the intention is that it greatly improves your current hair care regimen, to really take the health of your hair to the next level.”
If you still feel as though there are other hair concerns you need the product to address after priming your hair for styling, apply more product until your hair looks and feels nourished.
Still unsure how to incorporate Mizani’s 25 Miracle Milk into your hair routine? Here are three of Brown’s favorite ways to use the product:
- Refreshing naturally curly styles on the second or third day to help moisturize curls while reducing frizz.
- To prime the hair before jumping into a chlorinated pool.
- Added heat protection prior to blow drying any and every style
Mizani 25 Miracle Milk Vs. Mizani 25 Miracle Oil
In 2018, Mizani released a highly anticipated addition to the 25 Miracle range: the Mizani 25 Miracle Nourishing Hair Oil. Much like its Miracle Milk counterpart, the hair oil boasts up to 25 benefits for hair. Unlike the original Miracle Milk, the Mizani 25 Miracle Nourishing Hair Oil also boasts benefits for the skin. While both products share similar names and are loaded of beautifying benefits, the formulas are completely different and serve different purposes.
The main difference between the products is that 25 Miracle Milk is a liquid-based leave-in treatment while 25 Miracle Oil is an oil-based product. While 25 Miracle Milk merely supplements your hair care routine, the 25 Miracle Oil can replace the oils and serums you typically use in your hair care routine. The allows the products to be used together, for double the beautifying hair benefits!
