HONOUR YOUR CROWN…
Ladies, we all love our hair: long or short, natural or relaxed. Therefore, you will do anything to maintain it and look good. I mean, it is the crown you came with into this world.
Today, it’s about natural hair in particular. This is hair that is chemical free and simply, the texture and feel of hair you were born with. I’ve been a natural since, majorly because my mum would never let me relax my hair. It took me a while to actually stop obsessing on relaxed hair and little longer to actually love and embrace my own. I would go from braiding to shaving in a breath, because I hated its texture and feel.
However, after I decided to love my kinks, I took it upon myself to learn everything about my hair and how to take good care of it. This goes from products to use and how to style it. Getting the right products was the biggest hustle, since most products were made for relaxed hair, while others contained harmful chemicals for my hair. My hair is a 4c type by the way : the driest type of hair, which means it’s prone to breakage and is in constant need of moisture. It’s shrinkage power is on another level too.
Any natural with this hair type knows the hustle to take care of it since it’s so delicate. It took me ages to know about my hair type before I got the right products for it. Fortunately, earlier on this year, Dark and Lovely launched a range of products for all natural hair types, making the natural hair movement an easier one.
I’ll give my review of two of their products from this line that I started using and haven’t been disappointed.
DARK AND LOVELY: AU NATURALE
AU NATURALE: MOISTURE-REPLENSHING SHAMPOO
My favourite thing about this shampoo is the fragrance. The mango scent is amazing and the results are even better. For one whose hair gets dry super fast, this shampoo feels like a conditioner. It doesn’t strip one’s hair of it’s natural oils, which tends to give your hair that squeaky kinda feel after a wash. It cleanses ones hair pretty well and leaves it feeling ‘alive’.
AU NATURALE: KNOT-OUT CONDITIONER
With a similar fragrance like the shampoo, this conditioner detangles even the kinkiest of natural hair, giving you easy time to comb through it after the wash. Once you rinse your after 5 to 10 minutes as recommended , you can literally feel the moisture retained in every strand of your hair.
I honestly recommend these two products to any naturalist whose been looking for hair products that suits her needs when it comes to a shampoo and conditioner. There are plenty more products in the AU NATURALE line to try out. I know I will.
