The Good Hair Collective

Hey everyone! Recently I asked ladies on twitter which is cheaper between growing your hair natural and using chemical/perming your hair. Surprisingly many told me natural hair is more expensive to maintain especially in terms of time and products. I agree.

The hugest of expenditures being the Shea Moisture line of products. Now I’m not shading the product line at all because it has worked pretty well for me. If you’ve read THIS post, I share my routine using Jamaican black castor oil (smells like fresh bubblegum and marshmallows by the way).

I started using Kentaro’s tea tree shampoo and her berry smoothie conditioner. The shampoo doesn’t lather much and it smells minty and fresh. After a short wash day you can run errands or go for a movie once your hair is dry. Of course for better results, if you have time you should deep condition for longer hours.

The vanilla butter is one product I’m happy I bought from this line. It effectively seals in moisture and makes styling so much easier. The sister product is the mint chocolate butter and it works like magic too!


The hugest pro of all this is that the products are super affordable. This package goes for approx 60,000 Ugx/2000 ksh. You can find these in Kampala at The Good Hair Collective shops; one at Crane Plaza in Kisementi and the other at Kisakye Mall right next to Tuskys Mall in Ntinda. I hope these handmade Ugandan products reach other markets in East Africa soon.

So if you’re on a budget and want to get your natural hair sister, friend, girlfriend or wcw a gift, this is the package for you!
