I recently started my natural hair journey. Did my big chop on the 9th of January and when my hair was still very short I’d switch between products just to maintain and keep the shine. Hell I am guilty of using a shampoo full of sulfates because I honestly felt like my hair was too short to damage anyway😂😂😂😂😂😂 (Don’t judge me).
So fast forward till now. I had to get a weave for my graduation and well I literally had dry untreated and neglected hair under the weave. I felt like I needed something to treat it soon after I took out the weave as I feared damage. My hair had been a victim of hair dye and bleache prior the weave so I knew it needed some TLC.
So I took out the sew-in weave last night and I shampooed my hair with love 💖. We will talk about the sulfate free shampoo I use in another post. I towel dried my hair(Oops) well I couldn’t find an old tshirt near by and my hair is still a bit too short to get tangled up with towel fibre but anyway!!!!!! I am still getting the hang of this natural hair thing so forgive me if I break some of the rules here and there.
Anyhow, I deep conditioned my hair using the product thats the topic of this post, Africa’s Best Hair Mayonnaise. I applied it to towel dried hair, covered my hair with a plastic bag, 2stockings and a woolen hat to retain heat for about an hour which is more than the 10minutes they tell us to keep it in for but yeah again I really suck at following rules.
I rinsed it off using warm water and to be honest I loved the feel of my hair. It felt soft, well moisturised and I could easily comb through. I couldnt believe that a product I got at such a reasonable price at clicks could leave my hair so manageable. I have 4C very kink and course hair so anyone who has the same hair type knows and understands the horror I go through with that hair.
When I applied my oil and cream to seal in the moisture my hair was behaving so much that my mom didnt struggle when she was doing the african threading to keep it stretched till i get my PS for winter this weekend.
I have read some of the reviews of this product by others and most condemn it because of the mineral oil and the strong herbal scent but for those that dont mind either just like me please try it. Your hair might love it.I havent tried it as a leave-in because of the scent but you can try that too and maybe give me feedback on how its been working out for you.
