As salaamu alaikum & Hello, ladies....Lately, I have been on a serious prowl for a really good 100% natural moisturizer. I had been using my homemade whipped Shea Butter...which include's 100% Shea Butter, Honey, Coconut oil, Coconut creme, and Avocado oil.....However, lately Shea Butter ...just hasn't been doing it for me lately ( at least this little mixture).  In my previous post I shared with you ladies my love for "Uncle Funky's Daughters" products. This product continues to be and I truly believe will always be a staple in my regimen especially the 'Curly Magic" ...I am also eventually going to add one of their two moisturizers as well, into my regimen.

But... I needed something until I am ready to order more from Uncle Funky's Daughter.  So, I decided to check in on some of my favorite you tube celeb's , plus some.. and I found some pretty good things said about
Jane Carter's " Nourish & Shine" annnd it's all natural. So, off to a few of the local beauty supply stores in my area and I decided to go ahead and buy this Nourish & Shine, let me add that this product is a little pricey.
But, I didn't have to pay for shipping and without that... It was instantly a few dollars cheaper than Uncle Funky's Daughter.

So,  off I go...washing , conditioning , ladies know how it goes( smiles).'s time to apply the Nourish and shine....first, let me say this product smells AMAZING !
the texture is quite creamy and a little really , really does go along way.  So, I apply a pea size amount to my wet hair just as instructed I was applying it to my hair I was beginning to like it, but as we all know sometimes once  it dries can be a completely different story. now it's completely dry and ladies I have to admit I really like this product.  My hair was veeery soft, veeery moisturized , not greasy, yeah!!! and the shine ...the shine was Fabulous!  let me say That I haven't had to reapply this product yet , and that... I really like .  Because, it's so pricey.. and not having to reapply daily = the product will last longer.  Would I buy this product again, ABSOLUTELY.

I have not in no way given up on my Uncle Funkys Daughter, but now I have a in between product that I can actually by locally... when I dont feel like paying for shipping.

Here is what is said about " Nourish & Shine"

“You have never experienced a product as fabulous as Nourish & Shine! We blend all natural vitamins and essential oils to create this incredible hair nourisher. It completely melts in your hair and adds amazing shine and never leaves your hair feeling greasy or limp. Nourish & Shine helps reduce dryness on your scalp and your skin! Be careful … daughters and husbands have been known to abscond with this product, so buy two for them and one for you!”

Ingredients : Shea butter, Kokum butter, Illippe butter, Mango butter, Vitamins A, D, & E, pear and grapefruit essential oils.

And it's's best of the best winner !

Below I will post the link to the official Jane Carter website

I am not sure about her other products or if they are all 100% natural. But, I really like the Nourish & Shine"
