Hair Review : African Pride Moisturizer Lotion

African Pride Moisturizer lotion

African Pride Moisturizer Lotion is my staple moisturizer. I think this product is close to gold and if it were up to me this is where I would end the review. But, I will have a chat about it so you can see exactly what I mean.

I started using this moisturizer in 2015 and have never looked back since but before I plunge into the review let me tell you about it for a second.

What they say?

It promises to stop breakage, reduce split ends and dryness and repair dry, damaged hair. It is also perfect for blow drying, maintaining short hair styles, and moisturizing curly styles.

Apply a small amount into hair from roots to ends every day and do not rinse out. Style as usual.

How I use it

I apply a generous amount every day and I follow up with a sealant.


This moisturizer leaves my hair well moisturized I have used it on its own before on my relaxed and texlaxed hair and it did an amazing job. I have so much faith that it will do the same for my natural hair. It smells amazing, the best part is that it doesn’t contain petroleum or mineral oil and it is water based which makes it the perfect moisturizer. There is really not much that I can say about it. I 100% recommend it to every one

Available at: Any supermarket or pharmacy.

Price: R35.95
