African Organics Baobab Range gets TEN out of TEN for modern packaging, being Africa friendly & local, Sulfate & Gluten Free and being 100% vegan! And I’ve heard and read so many great reviews about this range, but I just didn’t have the greatest first impression after a use. LOVE how it’s made, and what goes into it – but it just doesn’t seem to work well with my hair.
Are you using Sulfate Free hair products? You should be! Especially is you have colour treated hair. You might not be paying much attention to the ingredients going into your favourite shampoos and conditioners – but need to start reading the packaging and checking up on what you are putting onto your hair.
My Mom literally swears by this product. And INSISTED I try it out. I even think she has got my sister using it. Now, Mom has super fine, dead-straight, naturally blonde hair (I know, what a treat!) and she finds that this is one of the only Sulfate-free products that foams enough to wash her hair, and not waste shampoo. Which I do understand – at the ridiculous prices of some Sulfate Free products, we don’t to waste a drop! At R64,95* at Dischem – it’s a good buy (if your hair can take it)
I tried out the African Organics Baobab Range and was a little disappointed with the results at first. Now, granted, it may have been the water in Noordhoek compared to my water at home outside the Valley, or MAYBE I didn’t use enough product to clean my hair thoroughly, but once washed my hair dried (naturally, no heat) in a stringy matter, like it wasn’t clean or that the product was too heavy for my hair. This seems strange as my hair is both stressed and treated. After about 3 hours, I actually had to tie it up (I was at an event!), and went to sleep with it up in a top-knot. Funnily enough, it was beautifully, squeaky clean in the morning. Soft, bright & shiny and smelling fantastic! So not quite sure what happened there. Anyone else had this strange experience?
A few people have told me to try it again (and I REALLY want a good outcome because #LocalIsLekker & I love supporting local) – so I might just have to give it another chance. Watch this space…
