Aunt Jackie’s Product Review + GIVEAWAY! (closed)

Sisters with natural hair are currently being spoiled for choice as a lot of international brands are hitting our shelves faster than one can blink. As great as this phenomenon is, some of these products have ridiculous price tags that a girl on the streets cannot afford. This is where the American Aunt Jackie’s Curls and Coils brand has an added advantage over the rest.

 

This mix and ethnic hair brand offers affordable products with no sulphate, parabens, mineral oils or petrolatum, making them ideal for women who like me are seeking to grow healthy hair without harmful chemicals. As luck would have it, I got to put their products to the test and tell you all about them.

AUNT JACKIE’S OH SO CLEAN! MOISTURIZING & SOFTENING SHAMPOO

The Aunt Jackie’s Oh So Clean Moisturizing & Softening Shampoo has a pleasant peachy colour and scent. Once I applied it to my scalp, it foamed more than I expected and since a lot of sulphate-free shampoos tend to produce less lather due to their lack of soap, the foam had me a bit concerned. Two washes and two rinses later, all the hair products were washed out of my Afro, yet it felt soft to the touch. As gentle as this shampoo was to my hair, it has also proven to be an effective cleanser.

AUNT JACKIE’S IN CONTROL “ANTI-POOF”

This light creamy and jellylike conditioner smells of my favourite childhood grape Kool-Aid ice lollies. Tempting to taste, but I refrained and applied it to my towel dried hair. After 30 minutes of allowing for the Anti-Poof conditioner to be absorbed (I have used it for overnight conditioning as well) I noticed that once it sinks in it has no discernible residue. Even though I could not “see it”, my locks felt slick and some of that suppleness remained even after I rinsed off the conditioner leaving me with a much easier to manage Afro.

AUNT JACKIE’S KNOT ON MY WATCH INSTANT DETANGLING THERAPY

I have used the Knot On My Watch Detangling Therapy lotions on freshly conditioned hair as well as on dry hair that I’ve dampened with water. In both instances, my Afro felt softer, more moisturised thus easier to comb and detangle. And once the lotion dried on my hair, it left no oily or greasy residue. If, like me, you like touchable hair and dislike sticky hands, then this is a must-have detangling lotion for both of us.

AUNT JACKIE’S CURL LA LA DEFINING CURL CUSTARD

This lilac styling product has a consistency similar to that of the Anti-Poof conditioner. It has become my preferred product for twisting Bantu knots. Used sparingly, the Aunt Jackie’s Curl La La Defining Curl Custard gives me twist-out curls that are soft and defined. I’ve noticed that when I use a bit more of this styling product to twist, I end up with stretched hair instead of defined curls, which is perfect when I want to wear my hair longer and straight.

Below are the results achieved from using these products:

  1. I cut my hair off some years ago with absolutely no plan for my hair and no idea what products to use. I’ve learnt quite a bit since then and my hair has now grown significantly, and I am absolutely in love with my afro. It’s long and coarse, and sometimes difficult for me to style. I have been looking to find a better shampoo and conditioner than what I’m using right now, and based on your review, the products in the hamper are what I need and would help with making my hair softer and more manageable, particularly when I don’t have a protective hairstyle. I would love to win this hamper

  2. My coarse hair needs an immediate make-over, I have been drooling over Ncomeka’s hair and her Aunt Jackie’s hair products (the curl la la) <3

  3. I’m actually eyeing the Curl la la Custard. My very thick and often dry hair is even drooling as write this. It would be very nice to win a competition, hey.

  4. Hey! I deserve this hamper because:
    1. I’ll be getting rid of my split ends this month end, after 3years of having my afro. It has grown so much and I’m terrified that they will cut half of my hair off but at least with these products I’ll start my new healthy hair journey with style.
    2. I’m a recovering hair junky, so if I win this hamper I won’t have to buy it hence I won’t relapse:)
    3. Everyone deserves this hamper because EVERYONE DESERVES GOOD HAIR!!!!!

  10. I would love to win this hamper because I;m new in the afro game and there are days where i feel like it its not worth it; this hamper would help restore my faith and confidence in my hair 🙂

  11. I am a long term transitioner and its been a struggle finding the correct product that works on the different textures of my hair. Would love to try Aunt Jackie’s Products!!

  12. Recently just started growing out my Afro…again. And as we all know try, try every product till you find the right one. Aunt Jackies would be a great plus one to my natural regime.

  13. prior to going natural i never believed african hair could grow long but beyond that i never thought it was beautiful. then one day i landed on natural hair videos on youtube and i was in awe of the beauty of our hair. An intense desire grew in me to also grow out my hair naturally but little did i know how much work it will require. ive been on this journey for a year and 8 months, ive acquired tonnes of knowledge including the fact that Aunt Jackie’s hair products are exceptional ( this is from all the review videos ive watched and i completely believe it). i would truly love to win this hamper because like everyone else i too deserve good healthy hair and these products will surely get me there. thank you 🙂

  14. prior to going natural i was content with my relaxed hair, i never expected more from it. i didnt believe that african hair has the potential to grow long but beyond that i didnt even think our kind of hair was beautiful. i grew up thinking that african hair is unmanageable, painful, kinky and not luscious and beautiful like our western sisters, till one day i happened upon natural hair videos on youtube. i was absolutely mindblown by the length firstly those ladies attained but i was also left in awe of how gorgeous our hair is in its natural state. i never thought of going natural before that but on that i made a decision to embrace what i have been naturally given. i realised our hair was not a curse but a beautiful crown. ive now been on this for a year and 8 months, its been a lot of work, ive acquired a lot information and part being that Aunt Jackie’s hair products are exceptional ( this is from all the reviews ive watched and i believe every single one of them). i would love to win this hamper to continue on with the journey that ive begun to great healthy long hair. thank you 🙂 the fact that this opportunity was available is awesome in itself.
