How to use them:  Jane Carter provides the ultimate hair regime. Start by using the shampoo and conditioner, and alternate the shampoo for the restore creamy conditioning cleanser as a co-wash. What I love about their shampoo and co-wash is that it really cleanses and leaves the hair hydrated and it does not strip the hair of moisture.  All the creams hydrate, some are thicker and provide more moisture and some are more for styling.

Retails $14.99 CAD
What we featured: Up North Naturals 8-Oil is a hydrating oil blend of nourishing and potent oils for dry hair. The 8-oil contains:






  • Coconut oil
  • Avocado oil
  • Grapeseed oil
  • Neem oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Lavender oil
  • Rosemary oil
  • Sandalwood essential oil.

Why we  feature them:

Up North Naturals products are 100% all natural with no mineral oil or synthetic color or fragrances, and they are Canadian 🍁. We love them because they believe all natural hair textures are beautiful and encourage the use of all-natural products to maintain healthy hair. Why we decided to feature this amazing product is because oils have so many great benefits for the hair. They help to seal in moisture and penetrate deeper into the hair follicles than a cream can. The 8-oil contains so many nourishing and hydrating oils in one bottle it is the ideal product for dry natural hair. (Gentlemen you can use it on your beard too)

How to use it:

Best to use the 8-oils during the L.O.C method (leave-in-conditioner, Oil, Cream), oils are great to use heated as a hot oil treatment. Heat opens the hair cuticles and the oils are able to work twice as hard and the hair can absorb more nutrients. Great to use for Locs and protective styles to encourage growth. The 8-oil is one of my personal favorites to use at night time before I wrap it with a silk scarf. You want to add this to your hair routine!
