I’m super excited to finally tell you guys about Afro Roots Naturals, a new natural hair care line that is affordable, Nigerian (made by a Nigerian- The Naija Formulator, right here in Nigeria), and actually pretty good!!
Back in 2013, I got some products from Midas Naturals. I loved the healthy butter in particular, and I reviewed it here.
As the saying goes, the only thing that is constant in life is change, and since then, the brand has been through some changes. Currently, they have a new line of products- Brazen Curls, and they sent it to me towards the end of last year to review. I have used them, and so has MeeMee, so, here I am with our unbiased views on the products.
The African Naturalistas review I promised is here.
At our last Naturals in The City meetup, I was given a nice bag of African Naturalistas products to try out. April was all about me and them.
Though I did not buy these products, you have (and always have) my deepest assurances that this is just another honest review on the blog! Everything cannot work well, or work the same for everyone, so in my reviews, I’m not worried about hurting anyone’s feelings. Different people, different experiences with the same products.
Alright. So I got the following: Leave-In Conditioner, Black Moisturising Natural Shampoo, Moisturising and Detangling Conditioner & Deep Conditioning Mayonnaise.
The mayonnaise comes as most mayos do, in a tub for easy scooping. The rest of the products are light plastic bottles that are easy to squeeze. White containers with transparent labels stuck on. this minimalist presentation and packaging works for me.
The products share the same base fragrance. At first I was thinking- fruity? But I concluded that they smell unlike ny fruit I know, but they definitely smell like Vitamin C. The regular sweet, orange, round Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) tablets easily found at Pharmacies and dispensaries. The Deep Conditioner smells kinda different- I believe I smell the honey in it somewhere in the mix. It is also worth noting that all four products are water based, they have water as the first ingredient.
