Well, we’ve done! Jumped and plunged! Our new hair and body care line for African children is in the store at www.AfricaSleeps.com
I really wanted to expand my store, but I needed the right products that I could really stand behind, and the right partner to do it. Every one of these fabulous products works as well as the ones I have been (happily) paying a fortune for at Lush, Biolage, etc. But now I can get everything I need for my girls’ gorgeous hair and skin in my own store! We have fabulously fruity scented products (using essential oils, absolutes, and flavour oils,) as well as an unscented line, for those who like to keep it simple.
I am making some of the products myself – you’ll find the world’s best Braid Balm and delightful Hair Oils and Hair Butter. But I also partnered with a company that specializes in green chemistry – making amazing products using natural, certified organic, wild-harvested, and fair trade ingredients. I am very proud that all my products have 55-98% certified organic ingredients, and use fair trade shea butter from two women’s cooperatives in Ghana.
Some products you should totally try: amazing matte face lotion (I admit I’ve switched to using this as well…), soft and bouncy curl definition (I can’t believe how well this works in my daughters’ free hair!) and the most luscious, slippery nourishing conditioner I have ever had the pleasure of picking my daughters’ hair out with.
I hope you will check them out, tell all your friends… and of course… place an order!
My huge thanks for your support these last two years! My adoption community ROCKS!
