Hey guys! Another product collection! This time we are headed to Dark and lovely for the next 3 posts to look at their natural hair products collections. To my knowledge they have 3 different collections for natural hair:
Au Naturale moisture L.O.C (Today’s post)
Au Naturale anti shrinkage
Au Naturale anti breakage
So we will be looking at them individually over the next couple of posts.
The moisture L.O.C (liquid, oil, cream) collection was inspired by the L.O.C method that naturals use to moisturise their hair. If you struggle with this method, wondering what products to use, then this collection was designed to take out that guesswork! They say the line was created to work together to deliver up to 7 days of long lasting moisture (hmm, do I see a challenge coming on?). Great ingredient list including coconut oil and moringa oil.
The full collection is as follows
Sulfate free shampoil (I featured this in my cleansing series)
Deep conditioning delight
Super quench leave in spray
Soak it up cocktail
Lock it in sealing cream
You know what guys, I am going to contact them to see if they can provide the products for my challenge ( I will let you know if they responded or ignored) , if not I will purchase them myself and let you guys know the outcome! Challenge accepted! The full range can be bought online from British Curlies >> https://store-h17m3tq1.mybigcommerce.com/dark-and-lovely-au-naturale/ , join in the challenge #7daymoisturechallenge and let’s see if it lives up to its name. For more information on their products, please visit their website >> http://www.softsheen-carson.com/dark-and-lovely/au-naturale-moisture-l-o-c/c/pl
That’s all folks! Let’s continue with the au Naturale anti shrinkage collection
Hey guys! I hope you guys are doing well. As the title suggests this post will be the full review on the products I received from Mon Shea last month. If you haven’t already check out my first impressions of the products >> http://wp.me/p1uQOd-ys
Let’s get straight to it!
So I chose to review the Pure Shea soap and the shea oil. I used the soap to wash my hair and I must say I LOVED IT! It lathers really well and mean really well! I use it ONCE! NO need for a second lather. It doesn’t strip my hair, infact I feel my hair clumping as soon as I apply it on my hair. Once is enough to cleanse the scalp and hair. I love the ease of use of this shampoo bar, wash day has never been quicker! It can also be used as a body soap but I haven’t used it for that purpose yet. It smells like normal soap actually if you’re from Ghana and you can remember the smell of key soap or duck soap or ameen soap LOL it kinda reminds me of that. If you’re not from Ghana, it smells like regular soap LOL
Shea oil. I have used this for my body and not my hair yet. I LOVE the way it leaves my skin leaving- silky soft. I am DEFINATLEY purchasing this once it’s finished! It absorbs quickly and doesn’t sit on top of your skin. It’s also very good for dry/cracked heels. And leaves a lovely glow. I remember I used it on my legs when I wore a skirt out. I applied it in the morning, around 7am and at 3pm I did the scratch test LOL. Wait Sarah what? Ok every black person has done the scratch test without realising it lol. You know when you want to test if your skin is dry or not, you scratch it lol, if you get a white line you need some cream if not you’re good to go LOL ( now tell me you never done that before?) anyway at 3pm I decided to do the test and nope! No white mark! It’s so easy to use and spread. I also like the smell, I mean it smells of shea butter and I like how shea butter smells on my skin. I will definitely recommend this! Especially in the summer when you don’t want heavy creams etc sitting on your skin! I’m trying to use this for my hair but guys I just love it for my skin so much!
Verdict- its two thumbs up from me! I love the multi of these products. I definitely will recommend you try them out. I have been using the oil in combo with my African black soap and my skin has never looked better! Once again I used the pure shea oil and soap from Mon Shea.
