MAMA PRODUCTS: African Organics

by Sarah on May 16th, 2011

I’d been thinking for a while that it would be a good idea to not only share information with you about natural and organic baby products, but also tell you about some of the great ones that I use myself. When another Natural Mama emailed me recently suggesting that I do this, I decided it’s time to getting going! She spoke highly of African Organics, which happens to also be a range which I use, so I thought it’d be a good place to start.

First of all, for those who haven’t ever used natural or organic cleaning and cosmetic products, something you should know is that they really are different to regular cosmetics products. They don’t always feel the same, they often don’t foam, don’t always have the same results, and so it is quite easy to judge them as not being as luxurious or as effective. The trick is to keep trying different brands, until you find one that works for you. And to also give them the time to work. It can take our hair or skin a little while to adjust to natural products, so often their condition seems to worsen before they improve!

I think I must’ve tried about eight different brands of shampoos and conditioners before I eventually tried African Organics. I have quite unruly hair (wavy, course and TONS of it) and used to highlight it, and so I really battled with it feeling dry and frizzy. I was so pleased to see that African Organics have a shampoo specifically for dry/treated hair, and couldn’t believe how good my hair felt after using it just once. Super soft! I’ve never looked back. I also use their body lotion, which smells wonderful, and is nice and easy to apply.

I buy my African Organics products through Faithful-to-Nature, but if you’re wanting to know more about all their products first, you can see their website here. Enjoy!

    I am loving their conditioner and body wash too, my hair and skin have never been so healthy as they are now.  This is an amazing range of products and you only use a small amount and it not only smells great but there is great foam which is always a plus point because it really makes you feel like it’s doing what it says it will..
