February – The Love Month.
“We learnt to love ourselves, until we were full, until we did not need yours, until we realised our own was enough” – Sarah Aluko.
The celebration of love is an important practice, and although the history of valentine’s day is a very questionable, the commercialisation of the day means that we’re all encouraged to show love and be open to receiving love.
Love languages are a 5-category metric to identify the primary ways that humans experience and understand demonstrations of love. In the spirit of love languages, we present this month’s box:

Step 3 – PHYSICAL TOUCH

Like a warm hug or soft touch, this Sof n Free Curling Mousse is light, silky and has long lasting effects. Rich in Vitamin E to help nourish and soften hair to deliver defined curls, coils, waves, and twist outs. Perfect for styling soft bouncy curl styles.
Step 4 – QUALITY TIME
Cantu Curl Activator
There’s nothing that builds relationships quite like spending time together, so we’re introducing you to yet another product from the Cantu Grapeseed collection. This Curl Activator smoothes and enhances natural curl pattern for added definition. Made with pure Shea Butter, Grapeseed Oil, Aloe, Mango Seed Butter and Olive Oil to hydrate and define curls.
Step 5 – WORDS OF AFFIRMATION
JML Locking Firm Wax
Positive and negative words can have a lasting effect on us, which is why it’s important to pay attention to what we hold on to. On the topic of lasting effect, this JML Locking Firm Wax is especially designed for those with locs or twists and provides strong hold without any greasy build-up. For those who don’t have locs and twists, this can be used in between partings to keep product build up at bay.
Some Extra Love From Us
Aveda – Be Curly Curl Enhancer
For those who’ve been with us for the past year, you’ll be familiar with Aveda now. This styling cream helps define and intensify natural curls and waves by calming fly-aways and adding shine.
Palmer’s Heel Repair
Although it’s not quite slingback shoe season, keeping our feet moisturised is a daily commitment. Specially formulated to soften and smooth dry, cracked or callused heels and feet, This Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Heel Repair contains pure Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Peppermint Oil in a convenient, no-mess stick applicator. The addition of peppermint oil revitalizes sore, tired feet.
Always remember, as we celebrate love this month and throughout our lives - “You are your best thing.” – Toni Morrison.
