If you follow me on the gram you’re better than everyone else and that’s a fact. No exaggeration 😙
Aside from your amazing good looks you also have access to quality content i.e. how f*kken cold I am in Paarl. This winter has been doing the most to my fro and your girl needed a straight miracle to bless the tress.
The good folk of naturalhair.co.za and Nilotiqa wanted someone to review the Nilotiqa Deep Moisture Butter. I live to serve my squad so I selflessly stepped up to devote my hair and time to giving the people an honest review. You know me, so uninterested in new products. 👀🌝
Now when I do a review I always go in really aggressive. It’s like good cop/bad cop except there is no good cop. People’s hard earned coins are at stake here, we can’t afford to play games.
Then I opened the jar… unscrewed the lid to a world that smelled like cupcakes and magic. A heavenly cream that took my winter fro from struggling to flourishing in the space of a washday.
We stan a multipurpose queen- and boy can this gurl do it!😘 I’m usually quite the stickler for using a product as what it says on the label. If it’s a moisturizing product then I don’t expect it to define my curls. It’s like a primer before make-up; you don’t expect it to be a popping highlighter or anything right?🤷🏽♀ If a product has “curl cream’ or “styling” somewhere in the name then that’s where I expect my curls to pop and have lasting hold. In the same way, I wouldn’t expect the styling product to give my hair as much moisture like a leave in conditioner would. This is why I stan the LOC method of layering moisture. Yes Sharon who just uses Curl La La this is a direct drag and you should feel bad for doing such nonsense. 🙄
After that long winded rant I’m about to eat my own words 🙊. This butter works equally as well to moisturize AND define my hair! I honestly think this is the first product that can legit have this claim to fame because it’s so versatile. I truly wonder what magic ingredient formulation these witches of good hair brewed because my hair loved it for both wash and goes and protective styles.
As a self-proclaimed Product Hoe™ it’s important for my products to play well with products from different brands. I know, I know, I ask a lot. But truth is, my ass plays bartender on washdays cocktailing products looking for that perfect pina colada curl combo. The last thing I need is something that curdles, creating white balls. Balls in your hair (white or not) are never fun 🌝
This butter is quite the sociable one, mixing with lots of my other products. I could use it as a curl cream or as a leave in base moisturizer without any residue or flaking occurring.
Online I’ve seen multiple hair textures rave about the brand and I love how we can all share in the bomb hair 💯💞 So yes, maybe you see me as some loose curl hoe acting like she knows what’s what (plot twist: I do 😜 😂) but there are numerous testimonials from curly to kinky loving them some Nilotiqa!
Now to the price point: Its R135 for 200ml. Depending on whether you grocery shop at Woolworths or Checkers you may see this differently; personally as a Pick n Pay Smart Shopper (5688 points and counting), this is more than the usual R120 limit per product I usually spend. Despite my cheapskate ways I fully recommend investing (because you best know that I WILL be repurchasing!). I tend to be heavy-handed with product- especially if I’m using it as a leave-in conditioner- and I’ve since learnt a little goes a LONG way with this stuff. I have been dipping in and out of this tub for three weeks now and it’s still half full. Glass half-full, wallet still in decent shape and fro living it’s best life- is there anything else you can ask for? 👅
Go spend money babes. Treat yo self.
