Product Review: Sisay Flax Aida Moisturiser
I have been trialling the Sisay Flax and Okra products for a while now while I have been transitioning and I have to say I love them all. I am currently using the Flax Aida moisturiser (my absolute favourite).
Flax Aida is from the curl enhancing line of products from Sisay. Flax, is not only known for its nutritional properties but also for its "curl defining" properties. It is also a very great detangler.
Ingredients: Behentrimoinum Menosulphate, Cetyryl Alcohol, Lunum Usitatissimum, Butrospernum Parkii(Shea)Simmondsa Xhinesis(jojoba)oil, Prunus amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Guar Hydroxypropyl Trimonium chloride, Hydrolised silk protein, panthenol, soy lechtin, capryl glycol, phenoxyethanol, fragrance oil.
It has very slight smell of cocoa powder but not quite like chocolate, more a mild sweet scent, and it has a thick creamy texture. I rubbed it between my palms before applying to my hair, as indicated by the instructions. It left my hair feeling soft and moisturised and I was particularly pleased with the way my roots felt. Here are some pictures of my hair before and after.
Before: Just after washing my hair
After: Four Days of using the Flax Aida
I love the curls I get from the Flax products (and the Sisay Okra products just ooze moisture). You do have to work the Flax Aida into your hair. The instructions do say to rub your hands together before applying. An AfroDeity favourite on both relaxed and natural hair
Sisay's products are all natural and are supposed to be mild enough to use on children. The back of my daughter Ruby's hair is always dry, I can never get it to look moisturised. I had been using the Mixed Chicks moisturiser for kids but found that even though on application her hair looked moisturised and her curls defined, I had to keep on reapplying every few hours or hair went back dry. I applied the Flax Aida on a whim to see the results on her hair and I havent had to moisturise her hair all day and she went to bed without the usual ordeal of me combing her hair and re-plaiting it so it didn't get tangled overnight.
Great for me! Great for my Daughter too!
A winner in my book
