Today im going to be sharing my thoughts on this Tropical Hair Butter I purchased from Afrorage some time in July.
Afrorage is a small online shop which promotes natural hair care. They also have a blog and facebook page under the same name. I placed my order by sending them an inbox and after a few delays I finally got my butter and a free satin bonnet (it was a promotional special). The butter goes for N$ 120.00 and is only available from them because they manufacture it.
I want to share my thoughts on the Olive Miracle Anti Breakage Formula Maximum Strengthening Growth Oil manufactured by African Pride. Please product manufacturers can you PUH-LEASE, please, purizi shorten your product names? Okay thanks. I understand that 1. product names are in short supply because new ones are being made everyday and 2. you want to ensure the product name reflects its properties, but it really is a mouthful. I just call it olive miracle growth oil for short. Ok, on to the review.
I bought this at Pick 'n Pay for N$ 35..it is also available at clicks, dischem (grove mall) and some supermarkets and beauty shops.
Well I got some twists done to protect my hair. I feel between the wigging and flat twists and twists with my own hair i've been manipulating my hair too much. I have also been battling some split ends and want to minimise further splits. So i'll be in braids for the upcoming months. I prepped for these twists by washing with sunsilk shampoo and dc-ing with ors replenishing conditioner. This was my first salon visit since April, so I had to blow dry my hair to prepare it for the plaiting.These took about three hours to do. I had three ladies working on them, and then later two. I decided to go for this maroonish red colour for variety...so loving it!
Now in one of the hair chat groups i'm in, two of the ladies have been mixing their diy braid sprays with crushed multivite and got some good growth. So im testing it out to see if it works.
From my last post, people were wondering whether or not molasses is a humectant.
I hopped on to google and he let me on about the secrets of molasses. Turns out it is a humectant and shares similar properties to glycerine and honey. Some even say more so than honey! It is also a heavier humectant so it can elongate your curls after use, as compared to honey or gycerine. I personally noted this when I was applying it. My curls and twist sections were quite stretched and the mix was heavier on my hair than usual.
So don't hesitate to add it to your deep conditioning mix the next time you want some extra moisturising properties in your hair concoction. But I wouldn't advise keeping it as a leave in remedy because of its super thick and sticky nature.
