I live a charmed life. If you ever hear me say anything different, you have full permission to smack some sense into me. The latest piece of greatness from my life was my trip to Jamaica on behalf of Black hair giant, Strength Of Nature. They tapped me, along with a gaggle of beauty and lifestyle editors and bloggers to come out to Montego Bay, Jamaica for not only fun in the sun, but to be reintroduced to Soft & Beautiful natural hair products.
The Strength of Nature hair care company houses several of your favorite brands–Elasta QP, Beautiful Textures, African Pride and now, Soft & Beautiful. Strength of Nature’s Global Marketing Director (who happens to be my awesome friend) Charlene Dance presented us all with a revamped look and vibe to Soft & Beautiful Botanicals and we were all impressed.
Check out the sleek packaging. They’re offering up fresh solutions for the styling needs of all hair types and textures. As a natural girl, who is more often than not, weaved up, I’m always on the hunt for products that not only nourish my natural hair, but they leave my weave looking fresh too. I can always count on Strength of Nature products for that (a few of my faves are listed below), but this new Soft & Beautiful…hunty! These oils are IT!
They have Tea Tree, Coconut and Olive oils that I haven’t put down since I’ve been back. And let’s talk about pricing, since we all know how frugal I am. These oils are only $5 each! For the natural girl who is trying out products, this price point is perfect!
They also have Soft & Beautiful Botanicals Moisturizing Lotion, Leave-In Conditioner, Deep Conditioning Repair Masque, Creme Moisturizer and Shea Butter Edges. I haven’t used these products yet, but if they’re anything like the other Strength of Nature brands I swear by, they’re going to be staples in hair product arsenal! “We have breathed new life into a collection that not only offers stunning results for women of any texture, but enables them to develop healthier and stronger hair via the application of all natural, ultra-nourishing and premium ingredients – not harsh chemicals,” Charlene says.
I don’t like to talk about the things I don’t believe in. So when I talk about Strength of Nature, beyond Charlene being a champion for Black women, the products she works with are stellar. As I said before, they work not only on natural hair, but on textured weaves and wigs too.
Learning about new hair products is always fun, but learning about new hair products with some of your favorite bloggers and editors in Jamaica?! Priceless! Check out my video recap!
The Products I Swear By:
Anyone with curls knows that leave-in conditioner is your heartbeat. I’m addicted to the scent of this conditioner and how soft it makes my curls. $6
Can I just say, “Edges on FLEEK!” with this stuff right here. Most times when I use edge control, I end up greasy or crusty. Not with African Pride. My edges stay laid down and photo-ready. $3
Every curly girl needs a mousse, but this one doesn’t give your hair that crunchy uncooked ramen texture. It does just what it says, defines your curls. I find this one works best on my weaved curls than the 4c curls growing out of my scalp. $5
Thanks Strength Of Nature!
