3. Venus Curl Activator

Curl activators are perfect for moisturizing your hair without making it dry or crunchy. But, be warned, if you are trying to stretch your hair, it is not ideal.

Venus curl activator smells great and is perfect for application on wet or damp hair.

4. Mikalla Shampoo & Conditioner

A good “wash day” fuels shiny luscious styles for all hair types. Most women recommend washing and conditioning your hair, once a week. Most shampoos and conditioners contain ingredients that work together, so you should use the same line products together. For this we recommend Mikalla conditioner and shampoo. Mikalla is not only a great brand, but also allows you to get more bang for your buck. 

How to use: Use the shampoo to wash hair (at least twice). Comb out hair while wet and apply a generous amount of conditioner. With conditioner on, place shower cap over hair for 15 min, letting the steam from your shower as you continue with the rest of your shower routine help the conditioner penetrate the hair. Rinse your hair and continue with the rest of your routine.

Price: 700 KES / 1L (per bottle)
