Healthy Hair products in Nairobi Kenya 3


Below are products that have now become part of my Staples.
I try to hunt for quality yet Affordable hair products around Nairobi.       

1. Roux Porosity Control – Corrector and Conditioner ksh 440
(Local Chemist)
This product is mainly meant for any Chemically treated hair be it dyes or relaxers. its main purpose is to equalize hair porosity as well as moisturize, detangle and lusturize your hair. (Very porous hair does not take in moisturizer well regardless of how much one tries to Moisturize the hair).
It corrects hair porosity by restoring hair to its normal PH level.
Roux Porosity has other uses too such as :-
  1. Before a chemical service so that the hair can readily and evenly accept the chemical service.
  2. Apply after a chemical service when additional conditioning is required. Leave on for 30 seconds, rinse out.
  3. Apply to the hair in sections while detangling the hair with a wide tooth comb. This is great before shampooing. Let it sit for 5-10mins after the detangling process, then rinse out.
  4.  Apply after shampooing. Let it sit for 2-5mins. Rinse and follow up with a deep conditioner for better conditioning results (more moisture, shine and elasticity).
  5.  Put 2-3tsp of the conditioner in your deep conditioner for added slip, cortex protection, impart shine, and align the bonding of the cuticles.
  6.  Use as a final rinse for detangling, and smoothness, leave on for 2-5 mins, then rinse out.
2. La’ Fresh Beautisa Aloe Vera – Moisturizing Deep Conditioner
1000ml Capacity – Ksh 300
Where to buy - Super Cosmetics
I use this weekly mixed with my protein Deep conditioner just to keep my hair’s moisture/protein Balance in check.










3. La’ Fresh Beautisa Egg& Wheat – Protein Deep Conditioner
1000ml Capacity – ksh 300
Where to buy - Super Cosmetics
Its another great product by La’ Fresh Beautisa who offer great value for money.I dropped my Organic root Stimulator replenishing (Protein) conditioner for this one.
The difference in price is over Ksh 200! And the difference in quanitity is almost 700ml!
They actually stock other protein, moisturizing and vitamin/fruit treatements at the same price and quantity!



4. Perfect choice Cholesterol Treatment – A combined Protein and Moisture treatment.
1000ml capacity – ksh 800
Where to buy - Super Cosmetics
This is a South African Product. It is great and smells awesome. I have it as an alternative to my La’ fresh Beautisa conditioners. I think its also a great value for money! Compared to other products in the market.

5. Oliive olive oil Shampoo – a sulphate shampoo
Where to buy - Super Cosmetics
I only use this shampoo once a month to clarify my hair because it contains sulphates.
I love this shampoo. It lathers perfectly and cleans good enough. It also smells great and eaves my hair super soft!
All the above Conditioners are Petroleum/mineral oil/paraffin free.!

6. Black Angel moisture Spray – 4-in-1 braids and weave conditioner ksh 195
Where to buy - most beauty supply stores
Braid sprays are cheaper than normal hair lotions probably not as good but they do the job.
I am using this product to actually moisturize my hair without braids or weave. Good braid sprays are actually great moisturizers. What you have to do is just check ingredients and make sure it will do the job. Avoid mineral oil based moisturizers.

    1. You can try this out. get yourself a spray bottle and put in some water, a little glycerin and a little oil. i am talking like 90 percent water and then 10 percent of water and glycerin. this always works great to soften the hair. then to define your curls you can use a gel. it would be nice if i knew what your hair looked like so i can help you out further. please just send an email :)

  15. Hi, I have read your posts and you guys have been really helpful. I am looking for a silver/gray hair dye and I can't seem to find it. I have been to beauty options, Super cosmetics, best lady and Nakumatt and I could not find it. Can anyone please tell me where I can find it even if it is online just as long as the minimum purchase order is just one box because I need it for me and not in wholesale.
    Thanks! I hope you see my post soon :P
