In case you missed it, Nigeria is in an economic recession. The cost of many goods has increased. In many cases, the increase is quite dramatic. Hair products are not exempt. With the economic changes, many people are looking to spend their money on indigenous brands. Kui Care is one brand looking to provide quality products at reasonable prices. I received a sample of their product range at the Kui Care Sample Party last month. I recently started using the products. Here are some of my initial thoughts.
All of the products have a pleasant scent. It is very light with a hint of cinnamon. The scent is consistent throughout the entire range.
The shampoo is very cleansing. My hair felt squeaky clean after using it. This was good because I need a clarifying wash this wash day. (I waited almost 2 weeks before washing my hair. 😯 ) I expected it to be more moisturizing, like my Creme of Nature Argan Oil Shampoo.
The conditioner was pretty thick and the application was smooth. I used it as an instant conditioner so I couldn’t really tell how moisturizing it is. I’ll try it as a deep conditioner to see if it can impart more moisture.
The leave-in spray is light but keeps my hair moisturized. I used it with my twists and my hair really liked it. My favorite product in the line so far.
The hair cream is also thick. However, I didn’t notice any long lasting moisture. It may have shea butter as an ingredient. My hair doesn’t react well to too much shea butter.
Overall, the products are okay. The standout is the leave-in mist. It’s nice that they are also readily available throughout the country. You can find their various stockists here.
