Virgin Coconut Oil - Afrofit Product Review

I have been wanting to share with you all my thoughts on Coconut Oil and its many benefits but honestly after using it for a few years now I was not sure if it really had helped my hair in any way. I had used many liquid forms of Coconut Oil in the past but after attending Fro Girl Ginny's meet up I was offered to review the UK brand 'AfroFit' and their Coconut oil.

The AfroFit Coconut oil is from Ghana, West Africa where Coconut Oil grows very easily but nothing seems to be done with it. The founder saw that Coconut Oil in the UK mainly comes from Asia and he believed that by setting up Afrofit and using Africa's oil could lead to more economic growth and allow more people to come out of poverty. (I'M DOWN FOR THAT!)

It is important for us to put money back into our roots and I would prefer to now use this Coconut Oil brand BUT first I had to give it a try!



Lush Superbalm Scalp Treatment - Product Review

A few weeks back I took a trip to the Lush store in Wimbledon looking for natural hair products. I had been aware of Lush for years but for some reason never thought to use them for my hair and skin care. 

Lately at events and on blogs I have heard a lot of people talking about the R&B hair moisturiser so this was the first product I asked the staff about. I also told them the problems I have been having with my scalp and they recommended that I try the 'Superbalm Scalp Treatment' (seen below) instead of the moisturiser (Which I think was great customer service! as they could have just tried to sell me both or go with what I asked for!).

The product comes in a round tin similar to a Vaseline tub and can be used for a year.

Lush Superbalm Scalp Treatment

  • The 'Superbalm' has all natural ingredients (listed below) that calm down the scalp and reduce flaking. 
  • Its is so easy to use, you simply apply to your fingertips and massage the scalp before washing your hair. The consistency is really smooth and has a wet feeling to it.

  • The smell isn't amazing but you wash the product out after using so it's not a problem.
  • It can take a while to apply to your whole head as you can only use your fingertips (opposed to having a liquid oil you can use a spray bottle or nozzle to apply quicker). 

You have to use it a few times before seeing results but I used this on my last wash and I can say that my itchiness has defiantly calmed down and on my third day hair I am only starting to see a bit of flaking emerging but I feel that if I use this product consistently I should see some improvements!

Yaay so I am glad I could finally have found a product that will get me into a good scalp care routine!

All in all I will give this product a 7/10 as it has not yet fully cured my scalp but I have hope that over time it will!

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Candelila Wax, Salicylic Acid, Rose Wax, Lavender Oil, Chamomile Blue Oil, Rose Absolute, Essential Oil Perfumes. 

What do you use on your scalp to keep it from dryness and dandruff?

Scalp Problems - Flaking, Itchy, Dryness *UPDATE*

My scalp has been an issue for over a month now! I am really trying to figure out what has set off the irritation I am now having. I currently have an itch/burn on the back of my neck just at the hairline and the front of my hairline flakes a lot. I have tried ACV rinses and Tea Tree oil which seem to clear it up and soothe for a while but the itch always seems to find its way back!

I feel like I haven't used any new products that could have caused a reaction and anything new I have tried I have stopped to see if that helps but still no luck :( Has anyone washed/shampooed there curly/afro hair more than once a week? I feel as if that will dry out my hair so much but maybe that is what is needed?

One method that actually worked was going back to my childhood days and using Always 'Castor Oil' hair dress on my scalp. The only problem with this is that I have been reading and constantly seeing that coating your scalp does no good, it only begins to block your pores which leads to more breakage and stunt in hair growth.

I think the next step I have to take is to see my Dr. maybe even hair supplements (Hair, Skin and nail vitamins or Hairvinity) could help? Feeling very confused and a bit deflated as my natural hair journey was going so well but I can't seem to manage my scalps health.

Has anyone else suffered with scalp issues? Please let me know below x



Curlformers Product Review

Curlformers were kind enough to send me a pack of 24 long wide Barrel curls Curlformers which also comes with two rods. They kindly gave me two softhoods so that I could give one away to one my lovely followers!

Softhoods attach to your hairdryer and are great for setting the Curlformers, perm rods, rollers and even great for when you are deep conditioning your hair.

Stay tuned to my social networks to find out how to win and read my full review and gorgeous results inside…
