:: GIVEAWAY :: ALAFFIA PRIZE BASKET (Natural Hair & Body Care Products)

After falling in love with the Alaffia Good Soaps and Coconut Lip balms I reviewed not too long ago, Alaffia sent me more wonderful products to try and an amazing gift basket to give away to one lucky Natural Chica reader!

 Natural chica giveaway

This amazing prize basket includes:

Alaffia handcrafted grass basket – Alaffia baskets are handwoven in Ghana and Togo from sustainable harvested grass. 100% biodegradable and compostable, this is the ultimate eco-friendly accessory.

Authentic Black Soap – Peppermint – Alaffia’s authentic black soap is made from a centuries old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and West African palm kernel oil. Saponification is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The last step is drying and curing the soap in the sun for three weeks, resulting in a gentle hand & body wash for all ages.

EveryDay Shea Body Lotion Lavender – EveryDay Shea Body Lotion Lavender is prepared with Certified Fair Trade unrefined shea butter, soothing African yam, and relaxing lavender essential oil.

EveryDay Coconut Lip Balm –Pineapple – A luscious moisturizing lip balm with Certified Fair Trade coconut oil and pineapple fruit extract

EveryDay Coconut Lip Balm – Purely Coconut – A luscious moisturizing lip balm with Certified Fair Trade coconut oil and cocoa butter

EveryDay Coconut Pure African Coconut Oil for Skin and Hair – Powerful restorative % hydrating fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, leave skin soft & smooth. May be applied to either skin or hair.

Authentic Africa’s Secret – Africa’s Secret is a restorative multipurpose skin cream based on a traditional infusion of botanicals and bee products handed down from generation to generation. A percentage of the proceeds goes to the Xerces Society for the conservation of pollinators.

Alaffia Virgin Coconut and Shea Shampoo – Virgin coconut oil and lemongrass extract moisture and smooth hair, leaving it shiny and healthy-looking. Gentle shea butter African black soap cleans without removing natural oils. For all hair types.

Alaffia Virgin Coconut and Shea Conditioner – Virgin coconut oil and shea butter provide condition and shine without causing buildup or weighing hair down. Lemongrass extract adds moisture and gloss. For all hair types.


The total value of this prize basket is around $85!

Each of these products balances science with tradition to holistically benefit your body, communities and the environment.

I’ve actually had the opportunity to try all the products listed here and they really do live up to their descriptions! Their lotion (I received the coconut scent) is now one of my favorites because it is incredibly moisturizing and not heavily scented. The pump applicator definitely makes it easy to use as well. The Virgin Coconut and Shea conditioner actually worked really well for my hair as well! I found I was able to finger detangle with the shampoo and was left with a clean, but not stripped feeling. The conditioner had a nice, creamy consistency that was easy to apply evenly throughout my hair. It left my hair feeling soft after rinsing it out as well. The scent is really low-key, which is a plus for those of you who may not like heavily scented products. I’m sure whoever wins this basket is going to really enjoy these products!

    I’m most excited about the EveryDay Coconut Pure African Coconut Oil for Skin and Hair because I’m always looking for products that hydrate and moisturize my hair and skin. I have eczema which causes me to have extremely dry skin sometimes, and with me being allergic to different products, sometimes it’s hard (or I get a little scared) to try products. The fact that is includes: hydrating fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals and is a 2 in 1 for my hair and skin is such a PLUUUUUUS!!!!!
