All Natural Products





Coko Butta: Whipped Butterscotch Smoothie is a 100% all natural hair & body cream for extra dry skin & flaky scalp. Its retail price is $10.00 for a 4oz jar.

This cream is yellow in colour and heavily perfumed. The scent may be too strong for some people, but if you love sweet things tell your sweetheart to get you this! It is not greasy which is great! And soaks in right away. 

Things we loved:
Deep Hydration & Non Greasy: It has a nice rich consistency, leaving your skin feeling moisturized and hydrated.
Shelf life: The estimated shelf life is published on the website! Most all natural products do not put an expiration date on their products, but Coko Butta does! We absolutely love this!!

What we didn’t love:
Packaging: The ink comes off the label after a few uses.

Ingredients:
100% Butyrospermum parkii (Shea) butter, Organic pure pressed coconut oil, Grape seed oil, fragrance oil and organic carrier oils.
Rating 3.9/5


Whipfinity: is white in colour and has a light creamy consistency. It is a Shea butter based whip for both your hair & skin. 

Whipfinity comes unscented, as well as in 5 different scents: Citrus Blossom, Sweet Cinnamon, Relaxing Lavender, Candy Cane (Peppermint), Kingsmen (Frankincense and Myrhh).

There are 4 sizes to choose from:
2 oz travel size $5.00
4 oz medium size $10.00
8 oz large size $15.00
16 oz extra large size $27.00

Things we love:
Hydration: When used as a daily moisturizer, it kept my skin moisturized all day long!
Non-greasy: It is light and particularly perfect for summer months.
Light scent: It is gently perfumed, pleasant and does not stick around for long.

What we didn’t love:
No shelf life on the container: neither the container or label had a shelf life symbol nor expiration date.
Also, apart from the Shea butter on the ingredients list, none of the other oils are noted as unrefined.

Ingredients:
Unrefined Shea butter, Argan oil, Grape seed oil, Coconut oil, Avocado oil, Castor oil, Rosewater, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Essential oil.
Rating: 3.9/5

  4. I've never tried any of these products but they seem like they'll work! The hair/body products seem to have very good ingredients and there's a big plus since they can be used for both hair and body! It's good that the hand-dry absorbs quickly, and looks to be very soft on the hair! Great Review!

  8. I'm currently in the transitional phase in my natural hair journey. While I have been perm free for 2+ years, I am still heavily reliant on heat straightening with blow dryers, hot combs, and flat irons. Weaves are also a regular part of my hair care/styling routine. I have noticed, however, that my hair is thinning from the stress and pulling of my braids and weaves, as well as excessive heat damage. I'm ready for a change but must admit it is terrifying to let go of these crutches. In my mind I often wonder, where do I start?? What should I do? What can I use to make this transition as smooth as possible? This blog is the answer! It is full of a wealth of natural hair care information, styles for the new and seasoned natural beauty, and tons of products made for hair and skin just like mine! This takes away the fear of the unknown and gives me the chance to embrace and be proud of my natural hair journey! Now even I can feel like a professional and do what comes naturally for my naturally growing hair. Can't thank you enough for guiding my steps and keeping me confidant in my naturalness! I'm a Shakara girl for life!

    1. AWWW you are TOO Kind! Thanks Aisha!!! <3 I'm thinking of doing a full article on transitioning in the next few weeks, because I've gotten so many questions about it recently. here is a response I shared with another lady who is in the process of transitioning hope it helps!
      Transitioning relaxed hair to natural hair is possible but not easy, because of the very different textures. The easiest method is to big chop, remember hair grows. However, if you decide to transition without a big chop educate yourself about natural hair care first, prepare friends and family of the change, visit natural hair blogs and forums to stay informed. The best transitioning styles are braided/twisted styles, twist-outs, braid-outs, sewn-in-weaves (but remember you still need to look after your hair while it is in a weave). Reduce your use of heat to a minimum to avoid damage/breakage, learn to work with damp hair: water will soften the texture of the new growth. Increase deep conditioning efforts as you progress on your journey ( learn to balance moisture and protein treatments); embrace your curls, and lastly set clear goals. Going natural is in-expensive and freeing! Good-luck!! sulfate free shampoos: Aubrey Organics Egyptian Henna Shine-Enhancing Shampoo, Alba Botanica Daily Shampoo, Anita Grant Babassu Lavender Rose Shampoo & Shower bar, Sheamoisture Raw Shea butter Moisture retention shampoo. Use a moisturizing deep conditioner (at least once a week) and protein based conditioner every 2-6 weeks, or as needed. Good luck!
