Africa Organics Marula Shampoo & Mongongo Conditioner - Review*



Our range is based on wild-harvested African plants. Wild-harvesting helps to maintain biodiversity because rural communities value the trees for the annual fruit harvest. This means that they don’t use the trees for firewood and they earn fair wages for their harvest. Our whole range is certified organic with Ecocert in France and is also certified vegan and cruelty-free. Our products are 100% African and draw every possible benefit from their source plants while causing no harm to either man or nature. Using Africa Organics, you will experience the effectiveness of natural ingredients without added preservatives, and the awareness that what heals you can also help heal Africa.

This is a good everyday shampoo for normal or oily hair. We’ve used natural, biodegradable foaming agents that won’t strip your hair and we’ve also added Rooibos as an anti-oxidant and Marula to help prevent breakages. Mint oils give it a fresh, pick-me-up fragrance. We’ve used Mongongo oil as a natural protective conditioner. The oil coats your hair and forms a protective casing when exposed to sunlight but doesn’t leave your hair feeling oily. As with all our conditioners, we’ve avoided synthetic conditioning agents.

Both the shampoo and conditioner smell fresh and fruity. The shampoo foams up nicely and gives my hair the feeling of a good clean. The conditioner doesn't feel heavy and leaves my hair feeling lovely and soft. Both are great products when used together.

Nadirah Sugar Paste Hair Removal - Review*



Nadirah system is a hair removal technique that uses an all-natural paste to pull off body hair. There are no chemical additives involved and it lasts up to 5 weeks. It is 100% organic and vegan. Less pain than wax, skin-friendly and natural ingredients that do not cause allergic reactions. Also minimizes hair ingrowth and every beginner can do it at home.

I hadn't seen the Nadirah Sugar Paste Hair Removal on Love Lula before, so I thought I would try it out. When it comes to waxing, I'm used to waxing with a pot and reusable strips. With this wax, strips aren't needed as you peel the wax straight off of your skin. I managed to succeed a few times this way and got a good amount of hair removed, but I found it more painful than waxing with reusable strips. I also found pulling the wax off of my skin technique quite messy and ended up using strips with the wax, which worked a lot better for me. I managed to do a full leg with the strips and my skin was left feeling really soft.
