People with Afro hair will know that it isn’t always easy finding hair care products on UK high streets.
So, the news of a new range of all-natural Afro hair care products from Lush is getting people excited.
Lush’s cosmetic formulators have developed a range of six new products which cater to Afro hair needs launching on November 13, online and in retail.
The brains of the operation is Afro Hair Care specialist, Sarah Sango. She has worked with the HairLab team to curate a range of products including a co-wash, two conditioners and three styling products.
Sarah joined Lush two and a half years ago and identified an opportunity to expand the range to further encompass Afro hair needs.
Equipped with recipes from her family and community and knowledge from her high profile career she formulated products with the HairLab team to address the needs of afro-textured hair. The fragrance of each product is tailored to complement each other.
‘When I look at these six products sitting together, I think joyous thoughts,’ says Sarah. ‘Knowing from cleansing to defining my style, there is finally an Afro Hair Care range available for the community in every Lush store.
‘Our ‘Fro’s are worn in different shapes and sizes. Hair grows up, out, and down. On Monday I might install my lace front, on Friday – box braids down to the ground.
‘The styles are endless, so you can imagine how many more products can be created. Afro hair is a journey, and mine with Lush is just getting started.’
Avocado Co-Wash, £10
Avocado Co-Wash has been reformulated to give curls, coils and anyone who wants a gentle cleanse an SLS-free wash.
The co-wash contains fresh avocado, packed with vitamins A, B, C and E, and proteins, lecithin and potassium which help to condition and deeply moisturise.
Power Conditioner, £18
This conditioner moisturises and thickens for added bounce.
Power is loaded with maple syrup to plump up the volume, swelling the hair cuticle for enhanced body.
Glory Conditioner, £18
Inspired by a homemade recipe, this creamy conditioner moisturises curls and coils.
Glory contains okra gel which is rich in magnesium, which thickens and volumises without robbing you of condition.
Super Milk Conditioning Spray, £23.50
Super Milk is a product to serve a thousand needs. Full of almond, coconut and oat milks, this spray delivers hydration and definition without weighing the hair down.
Spray it into your curls to boost and refresh them throughout the day, or spritz over wet hair of any texture and shape as a leave-in conditioner to help detangle.
Renee’s Hair Souffle Hair and Scalp Oil, £21.50
Sarah’s sister Renee would be given lots of shea butter from a friend after her visits to Ghana, so instead of using it just on the skin, she would make her own hair balm with it.
Renee would make the souffle at home with shea butter and essential oils that she would then share with the whole family. Inspired by the family recipe, Sarah decided to share her sister’s product with everybody.
Work a little, or a lot depending on your curl structure, between your hands and apply through wet or dry hair to style.
Use as a leave-in lotion or for twisting out to maintain moisture, shine, and to encourage your natural curls to look their best.
Curl Power, £18
Protein-rich hair cream with linseed gel and molasses to moisturise, define and celebrate curls.
Scrunch or smooth through towel-dried hair after your leave-in conditioner for hold and protective hydration.
