I’ve been receiving quite a few questions regarding where I purchase my hair products in South Africa (SA). Some of them I’ve purchased online while others have come directly from cosmetic and health stores. To take some of the guess work out for you I’ve compiled an online list where you can get your hands on some of my favourite products as well as some sites that I’ve found through a simple google search that stock natural hair products in SA.
Have a look at my updated regime post if you’re interested to see a run-down of the products I currently have in high rotation.
Stores I’ve purchased from
Birkeye stocks a variety of products from Organix to Miss Jessie’s to Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Personally I’ve purchased ApHogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor, Shea Moisture’s Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque and Kinky Curly’s Knot-Today Leave-in Conditioner.
The Kinks Hair
They stock the following brands: Curls, Hairveda, Shea Moisture, Eco Styler, As I Am and Kanuri. My purchase was limited to Shea Moisture’s Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie. A quick squiz over their website just revealed that they’ll soon be stocking Giovanni products as well.
The Perfect Hair
This online store stocks the As I Am, Mixed Chicks, KeraCare, Carol’s Daughter, and Shea Moisture brands. Personal purchases include the As I Am Curling Jelly and the As I Am Coconut Cowash.
Stores I’ve not purchased from
Tender Loving Hair
I’ve never shopped here but I do love the fact that they stock a wide range of Shea Moisture and Sunny Isle products.
Niche Hair Care
Products include Design Essentials, T444Z Hairfood, shea butter and silk scarves.
They stock a variety of products, but every time I’ve been on the site the prices don’t show up properly. I’m not sure if it’s just my browser so have a look for yourself. If you see a product you’d like to purchase but can’t see the price I suggest you contact the store directly by picking up the phone or sending an email.
This is a proudly South African natural hair care range that launched last year. It includes a sulphate free repairing shampoo, a deep penetrating moisturising conditioner, a repairing and strengthening protein treatment, a conditioning moisturiser and a super hair growth crème. After only hearing amazing things about it, this range is definitely on my future must-try list.
Ruutos seems to be a South African hair care brand in its own right. Unfortunately I don’t know much more about them but I thought I’d include it here in case any of you would be interested to check them out.
They stock a variety of natural oils, crèmes and butters.
A few other places to purchase from
- The Wellness Warehouse for Giovanni Hair Care products, carrier and essential oils;
- Rockin Naturals for shea butter, flaxseed gel, oils and hair accessories. Contact them on +27 78 208 3344 if you’re in the Cape Town area and,
- Dis-Chem and Clicks for Très Emme Naturals, other selected products, carrier and essential oils.
Some stores are pricier than others so do your research properly and take it from there, but don’t you just love the fact that we have more options available now?
Love your curls!
