Meet Africa Sleeps owner, Arnica Rowan: When Arnica Rowan isn't running a charity in Ethiopia, crafting with her twin daughters, baking cookies for her pet store, or teaching about sustainable business, she can be found in her kitchen, whipping up batches of Honey Almond Braid Balm. Arnica started Africa Sleeps a few years ago, so that her Ethiopian daughters would have access to great sleep caps. This past year, she expanded her store to offer an organic hair and bodycare line, designed specifically for kids of African heritage. With rave reviews from moms and influential hair bloggers, Africa Sleeps is becoming the go-to site for natural curly whirly hair care!
Arnica is offering three White Sugar, Brown Sugar readers a fantastic product package. First up:
Haircare essentials: Banana Coconut Nourishing Conditioner and a small kids sleep cap.
This 45% organic, luscious conditioner is super thick and creamy, with extra slip for picking out stubborn curls. Designed for the driest hair, it leaves curls nourished and soft. The super stretchy sleep cap is made of bathing suit fabric, to protect braids and hair at night, on car rides and under bike helmets.
Honey Almond Braid Balm is an African Sleeps, handmade, exclusive product. When corn rowing, twisting or braiding, smooth a little of the balm into the base of the braid. Packed with fair trade shea butter, sweet almond and apricot oils! and a little beeswax for hold, this amazing product protects hair from the elements and nurtures long lasting braids. The essential big kid sized sleep cap is for protecting braids and curls. It's stylin' for at night, but works great under winter hats and bike helmets too!
Fresh for Springtime! Pink Grapefruit Hair Oil is the most useful product in your hair toolkit. You can spray on at night and protect with a sleep cap, or spritz braids or curls at the beginning of the day. Made with sweet almond and apricot kernel oils, and a little pink grapefruit essential oil for delight. Pink Grapefruit Aloe Lotion is super shear and gentle, perfect for moisture on the face and the whole body. Pink Grapefruit Lip Balm tops off this gift pack, made with fair trade shea butter and beeswax from our local apiary.
