Happy Birthday Fro & Giveaway!

Yay! It’s Fro’s second birthday!!! And to celebrate, Fro & I are giving you* the pressies!

Two lucky readers will each win a hamper courtesy of my current go to natural hair product line: Afro Botanics just in time for winter.

Afro Botanics is a hair care line created and produced in South Africa by Ntombenhle. After feeling frustrated with the lack of quality hair products marketed to Black women in South Africa, she decided to create her own. Most importantly, Afro Botanics formulations DO NOT contain petrolatum/mineral
oils and limits its use of any synthetic ingredients. They focus on
providing the best natural moisturising and repairing ingredients (such as avocado oil and shea butter) that
result in long term healthy hair.

Each hamper will include:

  • Afro Botanics Repair Shampoo – to gently cleanse your ‘fro
  • Afro Botanics Leave-in Conditioner  – to help detangle your ‘fro
  • Afro Botanics Hair Fertiliser – to keep your scalp happy
  • Afro Botanics Daily Treatment & Repair Lotion – to refresh those curls
  • Afro Botanics Total Repair Oil – for extra TLC

Sounds great right? Well, it’s easy to enter:

  • Follow me on Twitter (@Cosmoaisha) OR like My Fro & I on Facebook
  • Like Afro Botanics on Facebook
  • Once you’ve done both, tell me you’ve done so in the comments box below. Make sure you leave your name, location and e-mail address so I can contact you should you win!

This giveaway ends at 11.00 pm on Friday 31st May 2013. The two fabulous winners will be announced here on Saturday 1st June.

Hip hip hooray!!

*Please note that this giveaway is only applicable for readers residing in South Africa.

    I absolutely LOVE your blog Aisha!! I BC'd exactly one month ago and have been experimenting with your hair recipes. What I love your blog is how funny and relatable it is. I am obsessed with the timeline and spend hours at school daydreaming about hair length LOL!
