Paying Attention To My Hair & Scalp Needs *Issa Haul


*This post contains an affiliate link.

My hair hasn't really grown since I did a mini chop and started looking after it better about two years ago now. I am 99% sure it is because I have just been buying a bunch of natural hair care products, without paying attention to what my hair and scalp needs.



Shea Butter Cottage

This is basically a hair care haul. I bought a bunch of natural goodies from *Shea Butter Cottage.

One of the things that I love about Shea Butter Cottage is the fact that each product will tell you what benefits it has. Which makes it really easy to shop around for the products I will need to better my hair & scalp. I specifically looked for the products that help to relieve dry, itchy and sensitive scalps. As well as products that promote strong and healthy hair growth.



I bought; Shea Butter (200g), Brahmi PowderPasuca: Authentic African Black SoapHaitian Black Castor OilHibiscus Oil, 2 Spray Bottles (250ml), and Akua the lovely owner of the Shea Butter Cottage slipped in a sample of her Eduase African Black Soap.

Shea butter is a must! Brahmi helps to relieve an itchy scalp and helps to prevent dandruff. Pasuca Black Soap contains aloe vera, papaya, sugar cane and shea butter so I thought this would be wicked for my face and body as it has pure aloe vera in it. Went with Haitian Black Castor Oil instead of just their Castor Oil because I though it would be closer to Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Castor oil is great for thicken and softening hair. Hibiscus Oil claims to be a good dandruff, hair and scalp treatment oil. I got two spray bottles because my other broke, and I wanted to use one for an oil mix, I was thinking spraying oil onto my hair and scalp might be better than using my hands or applicator bottle.

Beauty by Zara

I really wanted to try ElastaQP Soy Oyl Moisture-Rich products. I bought the Shampoo and Deep Conditioner from Beauty By Zara, but got the conditioner from Amazon as BeautybyZara no longer had it.

I am always looking to out for the cheaper products to see if they do the job. These products are super affordable and I have previously tried some other ElastaQP products that didn't really do much for me - ElastaQP Shampoo & Conditioner Review. However I wanted to give it another chance, and decided to go with their Soy Oyl Moisture-Rich range, as my hair needs a hell of a lot of moisture.


When I saw the word 'Soy' I automatically thought of protein and it also claims to contain vitamins and omega 3&6. I will definitely do a review for these products. I really like the fact that these products are filled to the top 😍

I kind of regret getting Lottabody Cleanse Me Co-Wash, only because I've never tried it before. Plus I have already tried a sample of their Moisturise Me Curl & Style Milk and I loved it, so I should have gotten that instead. But I haven't tried a Co-Wash before so I'm interested to see the results.

Antidote Street

I finally got my self a protective scarf for my head top. The one I wanted from My Luxe Beauty was sold out. I had a look on Antidote Street and their scarves were on offer for £15.99 (Originally  £19.99).

I went for their Marte Egele Gatsby print.

Those are my recent hair care purchases. I will be letting you know what I think of them here on my blog as well as on my social media platforms. I am in the process of getting some books for my book reviews so look out for those posts.
