7 Curly Hair

Natural Ingredients

I recently received a nice package from AntidoteStreet.com. The company collaborated with Curls Understood in order for us European-based Curly Ambassadors to review their supply of hair care products available to buy online. AntidoteStreet.com sent me the shampoo and daily moisturizer of Afrocenchix. I hadn’t heard of this brand before so this definitely triggered for my curiosity. I reviewed their shampoo and daily moisturizer and share my results below.

Afrocenchix Natural Moisturizing Shampoo

This product contains the following ingredients: pro-vitamin b5, aloe vera extract and coconut oil. I didn’t really like the fragrance of the shampoo. The scent reminded me of citrus fruits. I did like that the brand ingredients are based on natural ingredients, thus no harsh chemicals are included.

The brand claims that the shampoo can be used for kinky, curly and wavy hair. I have curly/kinky curls and I noticed that after a couple of shampooing-rounds my curls were becoming moisturized. However, it took me some time to get rid of the dandruff. Initially I had to grab another product in order to make sure that my scalp became clean.

I did notice that my hair was moisturized and it didn’t feel brittle. I also noticed that my hair did not have a ‘bad’ smell after a few days of using styling products. I usually experience my hair drying up quickly and consequently my hair does not really have a chance to embrace moisture. This product helped my hair absorb moisture successfully and keep it in for longer. Thus, I would recommend this product to those who have low porosity hair.

Afrocenchix Natural Hair Moisturizer

This product contains the following ingredients: olive oil and Shea butter. The second product I have tested is the natural hair moisturizer. The fragrance of this product is similar to the shampoo; again I am not really a fan of the scent. The brand claims that the product is suitable for women who have curly or kinky hair. The product is water-based and it has great slip. I really had to massage the product into my hair for several minutes in order to start noticing the effect.
