I have curly, almost-afro hair, and finding a cream/moisturiser to turn my mane into a tameable condition is a challenge. Thus I use leave in/normal conditioner. For the past two years I have been using only natural hair care products because I don’t like the idea of harmful products in my hair, and I think perfumes and chemicals inhibit hair-growth.
I recently ran out of my usual natural Avalon hair conditioner and couldn’t get to a Holland and Barrett over the weekend, so I popped into a hair shop which caters for Afro hair. I bought Organics Hair Conditioner in Rosemary for £4.65 for 340ml. It is 30p more expensive than Avalon, but I didn’t have a choice.
The scent is nowhere near as strong as Avalon, but still as pleasant reminder that it is fragrance, free, organic, and made in the UK.
It is a slightly more wet product compared to other, thicker conditioners, which I was vary of because I didn’t want bushy, dry hair. The finish, however, was exactly what I wanted. Instead of a hair full of white stuff, which doesn’t moisturise in immediately (what can happen with a lot of leave-in conditioners), the product absorbed within minutes.
I actually used this product this morning, after waking up late, my hair was a bushy mess. After a rushed shower where I didn’t wash my hair, I quickly ran this product through my hair and quite literally, within two minutes the product disappeared and my hair was easy to shape and style as I desired. Win.
Conceived by Nature's conditioner is perfect for curly hair, not afro, but curls which are very tight and turn bushy when it's humid outside. If your barnet fits the bill give it a try, and watch your curls become defined, soft, and scented with the freshness of citrus fruits.
