Huge South Africa and England Natural Hair Product Haul {incl. BONUS VIDEO}

Hello Lovely Readers

I wanted to liven this post up a little bit and make things more fun and interactive, so please watch the intro video below for instructions and read the rest of the post for more…

I hope you enjoyed my little video! Here we go with the actual haul.

Camille Rose Naturals

If there is one brand I have been desperate to get my hands on it’s the Camille Rose Naturals line, mostly for their styling products. Since it was impossible for me to decide on only one, I purchased the Curl Love Moisture Milk, the Almond Jai Twisting Butter and the Curlaide Moisture Butter. Of all the products, I’ll be honest and say I’m most excited to try this range.

Shea Moisture 

It seems that you just can’t go wrong with the Shea Moisture range. Since I’ve heard really amazing things about the raw shea butter Deep Treatment Masque I had to include it in my haul. I love that it contains sea kelp and argan oil, and because I haven’t had much success with argan oil on its own (not sure if it’s too light for my hair) I’m looking forward to using it incorporated into a hair masque.

I also purchased the coconut and hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie, which I am definitely planning a review on fairly soon.

Jane Carter Solution

Right, so here’s a natural hair care range that I would love to try out in its entirety at some point. And seeing as I’ve recently started experimenting with setting my hair in rollers, I thought the Wrap & Roll mousse would be a good starting point.

Beautiful Textures

Beautiful Textures is one of the cheaper natural hair care brands I’ve come across. I literally only paid £3.99 for this 425g container of Curl Control Defining Pudding. Trust me, there’s loads of product in there, and since I don’t use stylers such as defining puddings for hold that often it’s going to last me a really long time.

ApHogee and Kinky Curly 

The ApHogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor and Kinky-Curly Knot Today Detangler/Leave-in I bought more as ‘must-have’ products as opposed to the ones above which I consider ‘luxury’ products. The reason is that as my hair is getting longer I need to do more to keep it strong and healthy.

Since the ends of my hair have been with me for a long time I really need to invest more love and care into them as they are more fragile than the rest of the hair.  I believe the ApHogee conditioner will provide that protein-oomph my hair is craving. In terms of the Knot Today Detangler, I need all the help I can get as detangling my longer hair can sometimes turn into bit of a mission if the knots and tangles are really bad.

Included in my purchases was the As I Am range which I wrote about in this post. In addition I have already done a review on the Coconut Cowash Cleansing Conditioner which you can read over here.

So comment below and let me know which product you’d like a review on! The product that receives the most requests will be the one I review first, and after that I’ll review the runner-up. Requests are open for a week, so after Monday 13 October the request ‘line’ will be closed.

In the corner

Thank you for your support everyone and as always, love your curls!

    I would have to say Camille Rose Naturals. I see they’ve brought out a new curl maker (it’s been reformulated and contains marshmallow extract) that naturalistas have been raving about.

      I know! I’m so peeved that I missed out on the reformulated curl maker. It came out just a few weeks after I left the UK. Anyway, thanks for ‘voting’!

    Not so much a vote but a question. Which of those products did you get in South Africa?

    Thanks for reading Mel. Are you writing from South Africa? I purchased the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Mask, ApHogee Keratin 2 minute reconstructor and the Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-in via South Africa.

      Yes I’m in sunny South Africa:) Good to know. Where did you get the kinky curly from? I’m also looking for the apogee products.
