Hey everyone this post is for da ladies or men with hair. Natural hair can get ridiculous especially when you go buy hair products. Somehow the likes of sheamoisture and Cantu have popularized themselves as the go to natural hair products.
I had been looking for hair conditioner for my daughters and I ended up finding Cantu rinse out for N3,000. You can imagine my irritation when I grudgingly carried it to the counter and purchased it. My girls hair is growing, but as is typical with most mixed/multi race children the hair is never enough for you to do much with before 2. One of my daughters, the bands might slip off her head if I attempt those “puff puff” things. Another one we may end up with one decent puff in front and a scary mess in the back. My mom claims I was “baldish” till I was 2.
Anyway long story short- I went to braid my hair and ran into my old running partner from like 2013…we ran the London Marathon together that year. I remember going into a random store looking for hair products and found Emily Millionaire. And it made a difference in my hair. It was after I ran out I switched to shea moisture and co. I had recommended emily to her for her edges. I went natural in 2014, and I had stopped using Emily by then. She saw my BSL length and started screaming. So we asked the hairdressers if they knew anywhere to buy emily…one of the girls said yes so she went and bought us some.
Now the small Emily Millionaire cream is about N500 to N600 while the big one is about N800 to N1,000. If you read the ingredients, this thing is locally made with organic products and smells nice. Did I say beyond affordable? It’s like a well kept secret…we stay running after expensive sh*t when the local products do the same or even better.
So being the junkie that I am, I will attempt steaming my hair with it in addition to using it as a leave in conditioner. I am also using it on my girls. If your hair is a bit dry I recommend mixing with a natural oil of your choice- coconut maybe. If you want real hair growth, mix with castor oil and hemp oil.
Don’t say I have never done anything for you oh. See how I shared this one.
No Emily Millionaire did not pay me, matter of fact I will gladly be an ambassador for them, so if you have their contact just give me a holler.
