This product review has been on the back burner for a while along with several others! I'll try to post them once in a while till I'm done with them.

The Kids Organics Olive and Soy Growth Lotion by Africa's Best came as a set with a shampoo Kids Organics Ultimate Moisture Shea Butter Conditioning Shampoo. With names like that, who could resist....no not I, no not I....and for N850 for the combo I had myself an Easter sales deal! I was sold.

I couldn't wait to use up the last bit of my Aussie Moist Shampoo so I could try the duo out!
I promised myself that I would finish an old product before trying out a new one....that was the best way to curb my bad habit of using a product halfway before starting on a new one! I get really impatient to try out something new!
So I waited....for nearly a month because I had a new weave on!

Take down day, hair dirty and eagerly awaiting my new products, I shampooed my hair.


KIDS ORGANICS ULTIMATE MOISTURE SHEA BUTTER CONDITIONING SHAMPOO





Product promiseAfrica's Best Kids Organics Ultimate Moisture Extra Virgin Olive Oil Plus Shea Butter Conditioning Shampoo is a therapeutic herbal formula which gently removes buildup and impurities, thoroughly cleansing the hair and scalp.
 Hair is left feeling squeaky clean, silky, more manageable and with an exhilarating, fresh smell. Enriched with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Shea Butter, hair receives a healthy boost of moisturizers that soften, condition and detangle.

My review: The shampoo is pearly purple in color with tiny glitters in it (can see why little girls will like it). It had a nice fragrance kinda fruity which didn't linger.
 It foamed well, washed my hair clean without it being too squeaky clean or too waxy like some conditioning shampoo.
I was fine with it....not really the best but okay especially if you dilute it like I do. Since I didn't get a conditioner with the set, I conditioned with NaturVitale Conditioner for sensitive skin.
Overall, the shampoo can be repurchased. Works well for relaxed hair.

My review: I was really eager to use the growth lotion because ....duh...it is a GROWTH lotion and no petrolatum or mineral oil. I was already having visions of my hair curling down the back of my knees! So I happily squeezed the lotion onto my palms and applied it to my hair.......*tires screeching to a halt*

What was this nonsense?!!!!!
 My hair felt really hard! One moment it was feeling like butter, the next moment it was feeling like an iron sponge!!!!!
What did I do wrong? If this is how it's supposed to grow my hair, then I'm in trouble!
I decided to braid my hair in two, perhaps it'll take a while for it to do the job it was supposed to do! Not only was my hair a greasy mess, it was feeling razor sharp as I was trying to braid into two! I had to wash my hair again...which made it even dryer.....then I did an emergency deep condition to nurse my hair back to its default setting....soft and coily!
Not one to give up so soon....the products for kids nah....I tried it again a week later after shampooing with same results.

I told my sister who is relaxed ( perhaps it was meant for relaxed hair ) and she said she didn't like how greasy it made her hair.
So we ended up using it to clean leather shoes and bags.
Verdict: Dump.

So that's my review. If you have any experience with these products, do share!
