Natural Products on the Rise

A few years ago or so when I was looking for products for my hair and skin, I could’ve seemingly searched the whole Earth without finding one! Now, it seems there are a magnitude of products just waiting to be used. Who knew women with kinky, curly hair could have products tailored for them? (finally!)  Well, I’m interested in sampling different brands and seeing what truly works in natural products designed exclusively for natural, black or curly hair.

I am waiting on my PayPal order for my BlendedBeauty SilkShake. I bought two because I believe that it takes a few weeks to see results and I can probably go through a 250ml bottle quickly. BlendedBeauty offers haircare products specifically for “biracial and afro hair”. Their mission is “to encourage those with curly hair to realize its beauty and embrace it”. Their products are void of: parabens, no bad sulphates, grease and plastics and made with natural ingredients that are even gentle enough for kids, if you got ’em. (Hey, I wish my mom had bought this stuff when I was a kid….I grew up with thick-as-tar greases and shampoos designed for fine, straight hair! Let’s just say it left me with a raccoon bush on my head..not cute on ANY seven year old…)

http://www.blendedbeauty.com/ Check out the website here for amazing deals on natural black hair products! I noticed they also had an option for USA online shopping too. Hopefully this brand is as good as some of the ones I’ve tried already (like Carol’s Daughter and Ojon).

http://www.discoverb4a.com/ In the natural black hair community, Beauty 4 Ashes is mentioned often. Unfortunately, they are not Canadian and are not sold in Canadian stores (as far as I know). I would have to pay for shipping, which sucks but even though I believe in shopping locally, I heard this brand is too amazing to pass up! Bloggers swear on the Godhead line, and they have a whole line of hot oil treatments, hair growth creams and oils, mists, shampoos and super-food hair balms. They use organic ingredients and have a really good reputation. I personally want to try the Godhead Max Moisture and Gro System for $39.99. Anything that makes my hair grow and keeps it moisturized is a win-win!

For more locally brands I’m dying to try:

There is Kerasoft which is located directly in Toronto for reasonable prices. The Kerasoft Actisilk Curl Enhancer for $7.97 is perfect for the “wash and wear” look (love that!) and they even have a treatment for damaged, weakened or stressed hair. This brand is designed for Black hair and can be bought at Jazma Hair Inc., 8 St Joseph Street, 416 928 1888.

You can buy Mixed Chicks hair products in Toronto (yay!) at several places that I will list. My cousin uses their products for her loose curls and her hair looks fantastic! I have my eye on their detangling DEEP conditioner and the no frizz TRIO for $39.33 (includes four products). I Iove that the line is created by two beautiful, accomplished black women designed for those with curly hair.
