March box: Battle of the cleansers
March box: Battle of the cleansers
It has been a whole year of lockdown for most of us, can you believe it? A silver lining is the fact that every day is a day closer to getting out *cue Beyoncé – Freedom!* So we are getting you ready for outside life with the March box.
There’s a little bit of everything in this box, we’ve hooked you up with a cleanser, deep conditioner, leave-in, oil and some extras to make sure you’re looking your best from the crown on your head to the soles of your feet.
This month we decided to switch things up a little when it comes to wash day so each box is packed with one of the following eight cleansers:
Twisted Sista Luxurious Clarifying Shampoo
A fave of ours, this shampoo is infused with Coconut and Avocado Oils for super hydration and extra moisture. Apply to your wet hair in sections. This will create a luxurious lather. Massage scalp to remove any build up and rinse.
Lottabody Coconut + Shea Hydrate Me Shampoo
Enriched with Coconut and Shea Oils, this formula deeply penetrates and hydrates your hair. Apply to wet hair. Apply a generous amount of shampoo to your sections and work into a rich lather. Rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary
Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth & Tame Shampoo
Formulated with Argan Oil, Organic Shea Butter and Almond Milk it cleanses your hair and increases manageability. Using your sections, apply to wet hair and work into a rich lather. Rinse thoroughly
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisture Rich Shampoo
Combining gentle cleansing with 100% pure Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E to moisturise and nourish your hair without leaving it feeling stripped. Apply to wet hair and work into a creamy lather then rinse thoroughly.
Creme of Nature Clay & Charcoal Pre-Shampoo Detoxifying Clay Mask
Remove heavy build up while cleansing, detoxifying and infusing deep moisture with the Pre-Shampoo Detoxifying Clay Mask. On dry hair to cleanse, apply the mask to the hair, section by section making sure to cover the full head. Leave on up to 10 minutes to absorb excess oils and impurities. Rinse thoroughly
Africa’s Best Coconut Creme Shampoo
You’ll instantly notice your tresses feeling softer and smoother, as you lather your hair with this rich, moisturising cleanser. No drying detergents here! This shampoo won’t rob your hair of its natural oils. Apply to wet sectioned hair and lather up before rinsing.
As I Am Coconut Co Wash
This hydrating conditioning cream gently removes residue, oils, and build-up, resulting in cleansed hair that’s not stripped of its moisture. Distribute evenly through wet hair and massage this product into the scalp using fingertips. Carefully detangle the hair with a wide-tooth comb and finish by rinsing well.
Umberto Giannini Coily Curls Moisture Sulphate Free Gentle Vegan Shampoo
This moisture rich, 100% sulphate free shampoo de-frizzes and moisturises thirsty curls, gently cleansing without the drying effect of ordinary shampoo. Using sections, gently massage through the scalp and rinse thoroughly. No need to massage the hair lengths – the cleansing will happen as you rinse.
Now that your hair is clean, it’s time to condition and moisturise! Each March box contains the Roots Double Effects Deep Conditioning Mask. This 2 in 1 Hair Conditioning Mask is formulated to address all of your hair needs and is super simple to use. Using your sections, apply to cleansed, towel dried hair and leave on for 10-20 mins and rinse as usual. Alternatively you can leave this gem in your hair overnight for a more intense hair and scalp treatment.
In case you need a protein boost, we also added the Imbue Curl Restoring Intensive Mask. Rich in protein, this conditioning mask targets and treats damaged hair to reduce split ends for stronger curls that are full of life. Distribute throughout damp hair, generously applying section by section. Detangle with your fingers or a comb to ensure every curl gets a hit. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and rinse.
Now time for the leave-in, and the March box features the Lottabody Love Me 5 in 1 Leave in Treatment which provides instant moisture and protection in one easy step. This gem detangles & conditions, provides protection against heat, adds moisture and shine, prevents split ends and controls frizz. Spray on damp, towel-dried or dry hair and comb through. Distribute evenly through hair using your fingers.
Now that your hair is moisturised, we need to keep that moisture in so we’ve hooked you up with our hero product- the Superdrug Castor and Shea Black Castor Oil. Use this oil after the leave-in to ensure your tresses are moisturised for days! The oil helps restore and tame frizz, leaving hair with natural shine. Also suitable to use on skin, leaving it feeling soft, supple and smooth.
So now that your hair and skin are all the way together, it’s time to address a part of ourselves that may have been neglected throughout lockdown. Are you ready to get into the extras?
After the love you showed the January box which was a takeover by Palmer’s, we had to bring the brand back to give your feet exactly what they need. Below is a foot care routine that will have you ready to step out come June 21st!
Start with the Palmer’s Coconut Sugar Foot Scrub, by massaging in a circular motion onto wet or dry feet. Rinse with warm water. This can be used with a pumice or loofah for extra exfoliation. Then apply Palmer’s Foot Magic to your feet to achieve and maintain soft, supple skin. You can also use it as an overnight treatment, apply after a shower and cover with cotton socks and allow it to work its magic while you sleep. Finally, grab the Palmer’s Coconut Oil Foot Oil to seal in all that moisture. New feet, who this?
When we said head to toe, we meant it.
