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!!

Missing

Hi .I bought the relaxer last week or so and it didn't have the gloves or stick to mix. I was out of town and had to use my hands and a butter knife to mix...never had this issue. Very upset due to it was listed and I expected all the products are in the box.

I purchased the product, and applied it to my hair, never have I ever had burning like this... I rinsed it out and the perm had burned through my scalp. I took photos and made a video, im suing them. Ive used their product before, but stoped bc it dried my hair out. I chose to purchase it this time bc the store was out of dark n lovely, so i grabbed this ***

Perhaps you inadvertently bought the "Masai" version of the product. The women of that African tribe usually shave their heads once they reach adulthood for cultural reasons.

The men think it looks wonderful and it attracts potential spouses for the women. It also serves a sanitary purpose in that it omits a place for lice, fleas and such to homestead and breed. Since the women mostly tend the cattle keeping such insect infestations from their heads serves a good purpose. Check your bottle and see which version you have.

You can also complain direct to the manufacturer. Their website should be on the packaging.

I made a purchase of a relaxer and a complaint on 10/15 and nothing has happened. I have called your company and spoke to an alaina that day, i sent her by email a photo of the product i had purchased the week before, the activator cap was NOT tight and it leaked out and at the top of the bottle it had corroded, i was NOT happy, she said that your company would send me another relaxer and its 10/26 and i have NOT received anything, i have sent her 2 emails and she didn't respond. This is NOT good business and i don't appreciate being ignored. I am reporting you to the BBB to let them know YOU as a company cannot or will not give a customer the satisfaction and serving them correctly or even sending ME another relaxer. I sent her my email and gave her my phone number and i haven't heard a peep....NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR PEOPLE AND YOU NEED TO GET THIS RIGHT.

Damaged my hair

I user the African Pride oil with coconut oil on my scalp while wearing braids. I took the braids out and noticed a lot of breakage mainly in the front were I was applying the oil. My hair has never broken off like this, I ended up having to cut it off very short. I am so disappointed in this product.
