I have finished quite a lot of hair products in the last few months, check out my last empties post – and I have another one coming up before the end of the year! With product empties comes product hauls, it’s just a part of this hair journey life. I am still trying to figure out which one of the 2 makes me more excited. I haven’t done haul posts in a minute, but it doesn’t mean that I haven’t been buying products, I have, but I have been doing it in drips and drabs. So now in the last month I have bought enough products to warrant a haul post. So excited! Here goes…
Dudo Osun Black Soap – I have seen this product everywhere on the blogs, I finally managed to get my hands on it when I was in Malawi. I have been reading a lot about how to use it best – I cannot wait to try it out. I plan to use it once I am fully natural. I bought it for 3500 Malawian Kwacha (I think).
AfroBotanics Repairing and Strengthening Treatment – This is a repurchase, it’s a staple in my stash. I have used it for protein wash days, find the posts about it here and here. Side note: last week Pearl Thusi along with Afrobotanics launched a new hair care line, which will be sold at Game from the 25th of November. I am so keen on checking it out – I’m also very happy that Afrobotanics will be available in stores now. I hope they will ship some to Durban *fingers crossed*.
Easy Waves Smooth and Shiny Edge Tamer – I was looking for a gel/edge tamer that I can use every other day to lay my edges and also I want to try it out on my perm rod sets to make them last longer (this was a suggestion made by Thoko, a reader of the blog). I asked my naturalista friend Nomonde to recommend a product for me and she recommended this one which she also uses. I’ve used it twice and I have no complaints. I bought it for R37 at Dischem.
SOiL Kenyan Shea Butter – I didn’t mean to buy this, I had to purchase some medicine from an online store and I wanted to qualify for free shipping so I added this product into my cart. It’s 100% pure, organic what what shea butter. I love the stuff from this company, they sell carrier oils and essential oils amongst other things. When I checked the back side of the container, I saw that they are based in the very small town of Melmoth which is close to my hometown :). I bought it for R99 from Wellness Warehouse online shop.
ElastaQP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Leave-In Conditioner – I wrote about how I found ElastaQP products at a shop here in Durban. I didn’t buy anything the first time I went there but the pull was too strong, I had to go back and buy some stuff. I picked up this leave-in because my other leave-ins are running out. I can’t wait to start using it, I’ve read a lot of good reviews. It smells soooo heavenly good gosh! That mango scent is everything. I bought it for R97 at Arrow Cash & Carry
