Review – Afrocenchix Hair Care

Natural hair products is very important to me as always I avoid anything with nasty chemicals.  I’m always on the look out for natural British brands that work for my hair.

Afrocenchix Swish - Sulphate-free Moisturising Shampoo

It’s always a struggle finding a shampoo that I love, most shampoos end up leaving my hair stripped and a tangled mess.

Now this shampoo I do love…

the scent is amazing… citrusy and uplifting.  The consistency is creamy and lathers well.  I can finger detangle my hair while washing it and it leaves my hair and scalp clean without feeling dry and stripped.  I followed up with my regular conditioner.

Our moisturising hair cream is specifically formulated to provide a high moisture impartation to dry and frizzy curls. Our naturally derived formula is the perfect product for growth as it nourishes, softens and revives curly and Afro hair to make hair more manageable. Smooth is also great as a leave in conditioner, provides maximum moisture for easy manipulation of the hair and closes hair cuticles to retain maximum moisture.

This cream has a medium consistency and the first thing I noticed when I applied it to my hair is it doesn’t have much slip.  Now I like my styling products to have tons of slip so I didn’t know how this would perform.
I applied to my hair in sections, detangled and proceeded to twist my hair.  It absorbed well into my hair strands which is a good indication, I don’t like products that just sit on your hair.  This cream packs alot of moisture but doesn’t weigh my hair down.  My hair was soft and hydrated.

A few days after I unravelled my twists, I was in awe! My hair was beautifully defined, moisturised, soft and shiny.

I also find that I don’t get product build up even when I reapply to moisturise my hair.  I’m really impressed with this product, it has given me consistent results every time I use it so it’s going into my staples collection.

 

100% natural hair oil designed to lock in moisture on dry frizzy, curly and Afro hair. Packed with super ingredients like Coconut and Jojoba oil, our blend is the perfect product for breakage as it aids growth through sealing in the moisture. Seal keeps hair moisturised as it emulates the natural sebum produced on the scalp, locking in maximum moisture for easy manipulation.

Afrocenchix Seal - Natural Hair Oil

I love hair oils and this one is definitely going to be a staple.  The consistency is really light which is great as I don’t like my hair weighed down.

It smells amazing too, I like that they have used the same citrus essential oil blend.  The pump bottle is great as it gives me better control and makes application easy.

I apply to my hair after I use SMOOTH to help lock in moisture, reduce frizz and add shine.  My hair looks and feels so much healthier as it’s able to retain moisture.

I’m really impressed with these products, they also work well on my kids hair.  My hair loves them, the results are amazing.  My hair stays moisturised for days!
