Alright Y’all let’s be honest, having natural hair is haarrddd but super worth it. I need products that are going to work with me rather than against me, and let my hair rise to the heavens above! I also need products that are going to make my styling time cut in half…I got shit to do and styling cannot be a whole Sunday session (natties you feel me).
About a year ago I tested out a slew of Native Child products (you can see my full Youtube video here) and they truly did amazing things for my hair. There are no crazy ingredients that you cannot pronounce, NO SULFATE OR PARABEN (we don’t need that shit), and it is packed with 100% plant based natural ingredients straight from the earth to my hair. Do the products smell like roses, pineapples and rainbows? No, and I love that because it shows there is no parfum/fragrance that is terrible for anyones hair. My fav thing about Native Child is that it is produced locally in South Africa and it is owned by Black-Girl-Magic-Boss-Lady Sonto Pooe.
Now let’s get into the look.
I started off by washing my hair with their Moisturizing Shampoo and then using their Deep Conditioner. Here is where the time gets cut in half. Normally natties deep condition for about 45 minutes, but I can literally leave this on, comb through with a wide tooth comb (no pain), shower then rinse it right off. Leaving my hair soft, detangled and moisturized. That is like 5-10 minutes of my day depending on the playlist I am listening to lol.
P.S they have an amazing Black African Soap with Activated Charcoal that I am still trying out to see what long term results it produces.
I then based my scalp with their 100% Raw Shea Butter (yaasss lordt) and finished moisturizing the ends with their new Milk & Honey Moisture Creme. This moisturizing creme triples as a detangler and body creme (save those coins hunty’s). It really lifted my coils and gave length, because shrinkage is real.
It’s Styling Time!
I really didn’t have time to do the most, so I made two flat twists and tied at the end to make two really cute modern pigtails, and I was ready to get dressed and slay these streets.
I know y’all are wondering about my outfit so let me give you some quick deets.
