This post is in collaboration with Natural Health Harmony.
So for the past few weeks I have been wearing my natural hair out (no extensions) and thought it was about time I shared with you the products that I have been using.
A little back story, so I have been natural for 6 years now, I had my first big chop in 2010 and had my second one in 2012 but had never ever worn my hair out for longer than a few hours until now. I have always had extensions back to back as I have always thought that my type of hair (4C) is really hard maintenance and I really just didn't want to deal with the shrinkage.
Anyways fast forward to last month, that all changed as I literally love and enjoy styling my hair now and I think it's because I have finally found the products that my hair actually loves.
I have been using the Natural Health Harmony Shea Butter and Coconut oil on my hair. These products used together absolutely leave my hair so soft and moisturised that it is so easy to style; I have had so so many people complimenting me and asking to touch my afro - my hair just looks that amazing!!
A Bit About The Brand:
"At Natural Health Harmony we are committed to producing high quality natural products that optimise your health and make you feel great. We offer completely natural cosmetics that are chemical-free, organic, vegan-friendly, free from toxins, and available on an individual or wholesale basis."
I really love what this company stands for and their products are available online on their website as well as various hair and beauty shops around the UK.
The Products I Received:
Shea Butter: I absolutely love this product and not just for my hair; it can also be used as a body moisturiser. The texture is very silky and smooth and it literally just melts in your hands. I love that this is pure organic shea butter and the benefits and uses of it are endless.
Coconut Oil: if you do not own a jar/bottle of coconut oil, you need it in your life!! There are over a 100 uses for coconut oil, it is literally the best cheapest health product that you can get your hands on. I especially love the Natural Health Harmony one because it smells so delicious just like coconuts and it reminds me of the Mrs Crimble's gluten free coconut macaroons - yummy!!.
Just like their Shea butter, it is also pure, organic, vegan friendly and chemical free and the uses for it are endless.
They also have a shea butter and coconut oil mix which I am very much intrigued to try. I honestly cannot recommend this brand enough and I will most definitely be purchasing more and more of their products.
Avocado Oil: so I was also given their 100% pure cold pressed avocado oil to try. Now if I am to be honest, I wasn't really aware of the uses and benefits of avocado oil before trying out this product. Avocado oil is not as popular as the other health oils however it has just as many uses and benefits as the others.
I love avocados so much especially in salads that trying out this oil was just a given. Natural Health Harmony recommends two main uses for this; as a hair/skin care product and as a cooking oil.
As a hair/skin care product: I quite like the texture of this oil - it feels velvety smooth on your skin, it is very moisturising and not greasy at all which I was very pleasantly surprised about.
As a cooking oil: there are various ways to add avocado oil to your diet; it can be used as a salad dressing, in smoothies, for bbqs or grilling and for cooking various other dishes.
If you want to try avocado oil, make sure to buy a cold-pressed version here to reap the full health benefits of using it.
I have been very impressed with these products and highly, highly recommend them. Many thanks to Nathan, the owner of Natural Health Harmony for giving me this opportunity to try out these products and I am 100% certain that you guys will love them just as much as I do.
