I totally give all products a fair opportunity to see if they're worth continuing to contribute my money on. Key things I look for when I'm looking to try a different moisturizer or hair oils, so I decided to give the new African Prides Moisture Miracle Coconut milk and honey Hydrate and Shine and their Black Castor Miracle sealing oil, So I tried the African Prides new line of products and MIND YOU, I have been using the same product for years (As I Am) now, so I tried this because it's a brand that's been around for many years And I had just seen it being shown By The REAL SHOW, so I thought I could trust giving it a try. BOY WAS I WRONG!! I got a leave in conditioner and the essentials oils; I immediately started feeling sensitive irritation around the nape of my edge's, then right on the front of my forehead I have these nasty looking white bumps in and it itches horribly. The back of my hairline is so sensitive it hurts to scratch; it all most feel like it's bleeding. I wouldn't recommend this product. And I would like to launch A FULL OUT COMPLAINT ABOUT THIS. BUYRR BEWARE!!!! Don't use Grease for my scalp anymore, there is the indication of how long it's been, that and braid spray.... SMH Good luck

User's recommendation: BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Research products complaint first

First I always research any product I purchased this perm. But after reading all the complaints I'm glad I did thank your customers for this warning because it save me and my hair. Always check complaint against any products first. Purchase 2/29/20

I totally agree . I tried the African Prides new line of products and I had been using the same product for years now so I tried this because it's a brand thats been around for many years so I thought I could trust giving it a try.

Boy was I wrong, I got a leave in conditioner and the essentials oils; I immediately started feeling sensitive irritation around the nape of my edge's, then right on the front of my forehead I have these nasty looking white bumps in and it itches really bad. The back of my hearline is so sensitive it hurts to scratch; it all most feel like it's bleeding. I wouldn't recommend this product.

And I would like to launch A FULL OUT COMPLAINT ABOUT THIS. BUYRR BEWARE!!!!

TOOK MY HAIR OUT

I put this relaxed in my hair this morning and when I went to wash it out all my hair started coming out in clumps. I'm not bald in the front on the side of my head and different patches. This is horrible and I will be taking further action.

DO NOT BUY !

Hair breakage like crazy. Wear my hair short pixie like style. Been relaxing my hair since the eighties. Strong healthy thick hair that has been long, bobbed and pixie. Never have I ever experienced anything like this. Shoulders covered in tiny short hairs every time I comb it like it is just burned and breaking. Not bald-YET ! Will be deep conditioning for months and praying I do not go bald. NEVER buying this crap again ! Optimum, Dark and Lovely, Mama is back !

BEWARE - African Pride Pre Poo: Completely ruined my hair!!!!

BEWARE - African Pride Pre Poo: Completely ruined my hair!!!! Before using this product, my hair was thriving with amazing healthy coils. I naturally have a 4A / B hair type, now my hair type is undefined. Texture turned to cotton and there is hardly a curl pattern at all. It's like my hair was permed with a *** relaxer and I have been relaxer free for 7 years. This completely changed the game for this company. No other product I've ever used forced my hand to purse a lawsuit. PLUS I lost 60% of my hair. YUP, globs of hair falling out EVER day. I've used products in the past that didn't work for my hair, for various reasons, and then I stopped using the product; However, this product was very deceptive as using it once grave me a sense that it was going to be a great product. It smells wonderful, feels good, but over a course of two uses, I felt like my hair was relaxed.

African Pride's Detangle and Condition Pre-Shampoo(Buyer Beware!)

Today for the first time I used the African Pride Aloe & Coconut Water Detangle &Condition Pre- Shampoo that is new to the market. I had read on a website that it is great for natural hair to prevent damage. There was only one reviewer who stated that it did untangle her hair prior to washing. There is a misconception that it is an all natural product, it is definitely not. Read the ingredients please! That was the first red flag that I ignored. While I was putting it on my hair as per the instructions, I noticed immediately that my coil curls disappeared and it became bone straight. That was the second red flag. All natural hair care products do not and should not have a relaxer effect on your locks. As I was rinsing out the "gel goop", a small clump of hair came out, the third red flag! To prevent further damage I used a deep cleaning shampoo and a deep conditioner, that are not African Pride . The Pre-Shampoo has penetrated my hair strands and I'm hoping it is not permanent and my scalp feels a little tender. BUYER BEWARE YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
