Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver

I'm closing out my ode to SheaMoisture/Nubian Heritage series with one of my favorite sets from the brands to date - the Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver Bath & Body Collection! The collection combines the protective, healing, and rejuvenating qualities of hemp seed oil, neem oil and vetiver and is perfect for oily, dry, and troubled skin. I loved the soap that I was sent so much, I went out and bought the body lotion to go with it {now that's true love}!

Fab Five Friday: Facial Cleansers (Winter Wonderland Beauty)

Fab Five Friday: Facial Cleansers (Winter Wonderland Beauty)

During the harsh winter months, cool, dry air can wreak havoc on your skin. It’s important to switch your skincare routine to compensate for the drying weather. Even my normally oily skin favors an adjustment in the type of cleanser I use in the cold, winter months - I make the switch from gels that target my oiliness to creams and foams for dry skin, in order to preserve my natural moisture. Here are a few of my favorite winter-friendly facial cleansers that will start your skin care routine with soothing moisture for winter parched skin. {Products sent for review consideration}

Address Your Hair's Unique Needs with Nubian Heritage!

Address Your Hair's Unique Needs with Nubian Heritage!

Every head of hair is unique! Nubian Heritage offers different lines (that all feature all natural and organic ingredients) to suit your hair's needs! Color treated hair? Try the EVOO & Moringa line! Looking for maximum growth and strength? It's Indian Hemp & Tamanu for you! Do you love your style/heat tools? Protect those tresses with Honey & Black Seed!

(Full Disclosure: Product was sent for the purpose of review)

Nubian Heritage EVOO & Moringa Line (for repair of damaged  hair, to extend life of perm, and to extend color)

EVOO & Moringa w/Quinoa, Fennel & Henna Repair & Extend Hair Treatment Collection helps to revive damaged hair as well as extend the life of color while restoring health and shine.

Moringa Oil, was highly prized by ancient Ayurvedic  for its rejuvenating properties. It contains high levels of oleic acid, antioxidants and vitamins, which help to  repair split ends and condition hair. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is rich in fatty acids and provides intense moisture and shine. Henna offers natural color enhancement, and sheen, while thickening hair strands naturally.  Quinoa provides a protective barrier over the hair shaft.

Because the plant-infused line is so gentle, unlike products with harsh chemicals, it helps your color resist fading, extending the life of color up to 70%. It also protects hair from sun damage and environmental stressors, all while leaving your hair soft, silky, shiny, and smelling fantastic! My picks from the collection: EVOO & Moringa w/Quinoa, Fennel & Henna 
Repair & Extend Conditioner ($11.00 for 12oz. at Walgreens): it can be used as a basic conditioner, as a deep conditioner, OR as a leave-in conditioner and performs well in all 3 capacities. I've even used it for co-washing! What can I say, I'm a sucker for a multi tasker! EVOO & Moringa w/Quinoa, Fennel & Henna Repair & Extend Hair Butter  ($11.99 for 6oz. at Walgreens):   a little goes a long way with this rich emulsion. I love to use this on the girls after I've detangled their hair. It's the perfect consistency to give light hold for braids and two strand twists. Plus it adds a beautiful amount of sheen and smells so good! 

Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp & Tamanu Line (for breakage prevention and stronger hair)

Indian Hemp & Tamanu Oil w/ Bamboo, Monoi & Garlic Extract
Strengthen & Grow helps to do just as it says, grow and strengthen your tresses!

For centuries, herbalists around the globe have used Hemp on the scalp to calm irritation. In Madagascar, Tamanu Oil is revered for its natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties as well as its deeply moisturizing and reparative benefits. In Chinese medicine, Bamboo is used to strengthen hair and promote healthy growth, while naturopaths in the Mediterranean apply Garlic Extract for the same reason. Naturally fragrant Monoi Oil, a beauty secret from Tahiti, intensely hydrates hair preventing breakage. My picks from the collection: Indian Hemp & Tamanu Oil w/ Bamboo, Monoi & Garlic Extract Grow & Strengthen  Serum  ($11.99 for 4fl oz. at Walgreens): We all know that I'm a sucker for oils and this one is absolutely luscious! Smells divine and soaks into the hair and scalp like butter! I prefer to use it on soaking wet hair or to help in detangling my hair. Indian Hemp & Tamanu Oil w/ Bamboo, Monoi & Garlic Extract Grow & Strengthen Edge Taming Taffy ($11.99 for 6oz. at Walgreens): it's all-natural and petrolatum-free and works wonders at helping to control and smooth edges for a sleek look. I use it for ponytails, braids, and two strands twists for myself, and curly puffs for the girls.

Nubian Heritage Honey & Black Seed Line (for heat protection and moisture retention)

Honey & Black Seed w/ Babassu, Carrot & Macadamia Nut Oils
Heat Protection and Moisture Retention

Arabian Honey, because of its high concentration of proteins, natural enzymes and amino acids, has been used throughout history to deeply moisturize, repair and protect the hair and scalp. Black Seed Oil was actually found in the Tomb of King Tutankhamen and is used to rejuvenate and balance hair and scalp with its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and healing benefits. Babassu Oil comes from the Amazon and is rich in fatty acids. It has been traditionally used in Brazil to strengthen hair and preserve elasticity. Australian aborigines have applied Macadamia Nut Oil to their hair to replenish moisture for thousands of years, while Keratin helps repair damage and nourishes hair, leaving it smooth and silky. My picks from the collection: Honey & Black Seed w/ Babassu, Carrot & Macadamia Nut Oils Heat Protect Keratin Hair & Scalp Serum ($11.99 for 4oz. at Walgreens): This is the perfect precursor to straightening my hair. I don't blow dry my hair-when I know I'm going to be straightening it, I wash and condition it, apply this oil while it's still wet, and then braid it up and allow it to air dry. Once it's dry and right before I use a flat iron to straighten I use my second pick...Honey & Black Seed w/ Babassu, Carrot & Macadamia Nut Oils Heat Protect Keratin Wrap Mousse ($11.99 for  7.5fl oz at Walgreens): It is the perfect texture for use before heat styling because it doesn't leave your hair wet for too long. Not only is your hair protected from heat, it's left soft and shiny, with a slight amount of hold (so your style won't fall flat as soon as you leave the house)!

Even though those are my selections from the 3 collections, you really can't go wrong with any of these products! In fact, I feel like my appetite has merely been whetted and I'm so ready to try out EVERYTHING else Nubian Heritage has to offer! Have you tried any of their products yet? What are your favorites? Anything mentioned here that you are now dying to try? My inquiring mind want to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Until next time...
