This is just an update on the new products I’ve added to my stash.
This is NOT a product review.
From L – R:
Gentelle Hair Fruits Conditioner – I’m using this as a detangling conditioner and it’s really cheap, got this for 250n at the beauty store close to my house. I believe detangling conditioners should be very affordable if not cheap but with good ingredients as well so you get the worth of your money, I’m not against using expensive products but when you get to use detangling conditioners almost every week when your hair is out then you’d opt for the cheaper route.
Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar With The ‘Mother’ – I got this from Olori for 1700n, I went to the store itself to pick it up because I wanted to get other products and I was going towards that side. I’d advise you buy your products and get them delivered to you, it’s much convenient that way, but if you drive or if you’re just the curious type (like me) and you want to waste t-fare, then you can go all the way to their store at Ojuelegba in Lagos State. I got this to do an ACV rinse (next post) but then I read on ACV and it can be used for a million and one things, no kidding. It can be used as a toner, for weight loss etc asides the benefits it gives hair. ACV and Aloe Vera Juice are on the same level so I opted for this.
Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil (Rosemary) – The long awaited JBCO! Hallelujah! Lol, finally! I got the 8 oz. bottle for 3500n also at Olori the same day I got the ACV. There are however three types of JBCO; Sunny Isle, Tropic Isle and JBCO with mango and lime so I did a rule of thumb and went with this. I’ve added this to my shea butter mix and I must say it’s super softening! I also mixed 10 tablespoons of JBCO with 2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil just to reduce the stickiness of the JBCO and kept in a little container. I bought this solely to thicken my hair, on the flip side it is very moisturizing and it is infused with Rosemary Oil so it’s a win-win for me! /(^__^)/. I’m currently on a one month JBCO challenge for my edges (mainly) and other parts of my hair with shorter length.
Tropical Naturals Dudu Osun Black Soap – I finally got to try the black soap. I got this for 120n at the beauty store close to me. I’m using this as a cleansing shampoo, since it’s in a bar, you can cut half of it and save the other half, although I didn’t do this since I cleanse only once a month when I take down a protective style, other times I’m on the CG method. It’s enriched with all these goodies however I think the concentration of sulphate in this is quite high but then again it is needed for cleansing purposes.
Pure Henna Powder – Henna yeah, Henna whoosh, Henna yay! Lol! I got this from Olori as well at 500n for 100g, very reasonable because unless your hair is highly dense and over 6/7″, 100g is enough. I got this only for strengthening and coloring purposes. I’m still postponing when I’d “henna” my hair though (get this laziness away from me 😦)
Need I say, the staff at Olori are very nice and accommodating. I’m big on customer relationship and this has made them my one stop shop/store for my hair products (because proximity).
