Product re-up and mini update

I know it’s late but Happy new year y’all! So I know I had said I’d gone Chinese hair product wise (see here) but then during a random Taobao (known as China’s Ebay) browsing session I came across a shampoo and conditioner set I could not say no to! Inecto Naturals Argan shampoo and conditioner….

My current hair products (+trip to the Great Wall of China)

Finally did a second product re-up and I think I have found a combination that I am happy with that doesn’t burden my wallet too much. For shampoo and conditioner, I have gone Chinese permanently and stick to a brand called 源自然 or From Nature. Shampoo: Natural honely locust aloe shampoo All the ingredients are…

Product re-up

So I have finally found some cheap Chinese hair products to replace my now finished shampoo and conditioner. I decided to put my limited knowledge of the language to use and search for some natural Chinese hair products online (i.e no parabens, sulphates etc). I had intended to buy American natural products which can easily…

My current hair products….

So I thought I’d do something fun and share what hides behind my cosmetics in my closet…. These are all my hair products!! The struggle to find good products for natural hair is a constant one but at least from appearances I’m surviving! This is mainly due to Clicks Pharmacy opening here in Gaborone, the…

New product alert: Amla Legend by Dark and Lovely

I went into Clicks pharmacy yesterday in search for a reasonably priced deep conditioner since my ORS mayo is about to finish. Some green/blue and yellow colours caught my eye and y’all know I love me some attractive packaging! I had seen this product in passing on Good Hair Diaries and in her review she…

Masque, conditioner and treatment: what’s the difference?

Some time back, someone recommended a mask to me and it got me wondering about the difference between a mask, treatment and conditioner. This is also kind of an addition to my Newly Natural product post, so if you haven’t read that one you may want to just take a glimpse. Conditioners A conditioner reduces…

Product Review: ORS Hair mayonnaise treatment for damaged hair

This product is quite common in hair product aisles and is not that hard to find. I have used it many times before but not on natural hair, only on my relaxed hair. I couldn’t tell at the time whether it was good or not because it doesn’t take much to make straight hair feel…

Product review: Earthsap pomegranate and soy conditioner

It’s been a while since I did a product review but the wait has not been in vain! Packaging really does a lot for a product! Case in point: I walked past this conditioner for months until my better half noticed it. And even though he bought it and went as far as consulting me…

Hello Apple Cider Vinegar!

I finally woke up to the benefits of Apple cider vinegar!!! It has often been mentioned in hair care blogs and my nappy hair care “mentor” (my buddy Jean for those that know her) had long suggested it when she discovered it. I took my time getting around to it though but I am finally…

New stuff!

A couple days ago I posted a picture of a bottle of Jamaican black castor oil (JBCO) on the Soul Canvas Facebook page and I did promise I was going to explain where I got it. Through a friend I was told about someone by the name of Ruth who was selling hair products, make…

The new hair products & hair update

The new hair products So this month I have to switch up my hair products because of a few reasons: Tresemme has now started making my scalp itch for some reason. I am incredibly sad about that because with Tresemme I get the most bang for my buck. Both the shampoo and conditioner irritate my scalp…
