On The Hair Desk – Natural Hair Care May Favourites
I haven’t written in such a long time, I felt like I had lost my mojo. Going back to why I started has surely helped with my writer’s block. I love sharing tips and tricks with all of you. Sharing what works for me in the hope that it’ll help you make some wise purchasing choices makes me happy. In today’s blog post I am going to be sharing some of my May favourites.
Winter is here, and in the Eastern Cape, the weather isn’t playing with anyone. It’s finicky, unpredictable and COLD! If all these factors affect your mood, your skin then best believe they are going to affect your hair. I always wonder what other naturalistas use on their hair. I see those bomb ass afros, looking so thick and healthy and I can’t help but wonder.
Because I know how curious we all are, I’ve decided to share some of my current haircare favourites. To welcome myself back to writing I figured I would start with a bang. I am introducing a brand new theme – it will focus on some of the haircare products on my desk.
May Favourites – Shea Moisture
For a while, Shea Moisture was cancelled and I had actually never tried their products before. The very first product I’ve ever tried from the Shea Moisture Collection is this Strengthen a restore leave-in conditioner. I am so glad I tried it, my natural hair just loves this leave in conditioner. It made it to my hair desk may favourites because it has some amazing ingredients. It is formulated with Jamaican Black Castor Oil and certified organic Shea Butter to nourish, moisturize and support elasticity so hair resists breakage when detangling. It’s reparative, it softens my hair and helps control frizz.
May Favourites – Palmers
I really wanted to switch things up with my May Favourites. I want to share some of my favourite natural hair care brands and their ranges. Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula™ range contains ethically and sustainably sourced Extra Virgin Coconut oil. This silicone-free formula is perfect for extra dry, colour-treated, processed, curly, fragile or breakage-prone hair. I have highly porous hair that loses moisture at the click of a finger. The Palmers range is both moisturising and treating. After a bleached my hair I can safely say it saved what was left of my kinks. I love this range. Have you tried any of the Palmers Hair Care Ranges?
With Mother Nature’s best ingredients such as Coconut Milk and Aloe Vera, to ensure hair is left moisturised, manageable and soft. This duo is amazing, you get enough product to care for your hair, its value for money, this range is lower in sulphates than the other TRESemme products too? A sign that they aren’t ignoring the natural hair community. The Botanique conditioner is my favourite. It has just the right amount of slip, it detangles and conditions.
The carol’s daughter range is well, uuummm… expensive but honestly worth your coint. I have a Video Review of the range that I think you’ll love. Carol’s Daughter products are amongst the ‘high’ end haircare ranges. They have different formulas for different curl, kink and coil needs.
The My Natural haircare range is one of the few wholesome ranges on the market. If you aren’t a mixtress and you don’t want the stress of trying to figure out how to whip your own butter or mix a leave-in conditioner the My Natural Hair Care range is just perfect. This is featured in my May favourites but is honestly one of my absolute favourite products. Natural Hair Care for Black African, its focused on issues that affect our hair such as dryness, frizz, and dehydration.
Dark n Lovely Au Naturale
For a very long time, we’ve associated Dark n Lovely with relaxer and relaxed hair products. Well, Dark n Lovely ain’t playing with you no more. The range is a complete system to help you both care and style your natural hair. Just the right recipe for rich, natural hair
