3. Sheth Naturals
Sheth Naturals was founded in July 2015.
The brand has two main product line. One which is Mizizi that has gained recognition for its commitment to nourishing hair from the roots. Mizizi, which means ‘roots’ in Swahili is a clarion call for Africans to return to our roots by embracing our unique beauty and using natural products available in our continent to enhance our beauty.
These products are pure natural plant extracts, most of which are raw and unrefined butters and oils. They are extracted using mechanical means and can be used for food and beauty purposes. The natural conversation is not just about seeking beauty, but also how to do this without posing a threat to the health of the seeker. This is because most beauty products that have been traditionally available in the African market contain ingredients that are very harmful to the health of the user with prolonged use. Mizizi products are therefore extracted through methods that preserve their nutritional as well as their cosmetic benefits.
Sheth Naturals also run the Sheba product line. Sheba derives its name from the Queen of Sheba. It is a reminder to us that we are royalty; Princes, Princesses, Kings and Queens and that we deserve the best. This range is made to keep the crowns on our heads healthy! We will never wear a better crown than the hair that grows from our scalps. The Sheba line comes to nurture African hair, whether worn open and natural, tex-laxed, relaxed, dreadlocked, sister locked, micro twisted or in other long-term protective styles leaving it moisturized, healthy and well styled.
Some of their product line include:
- Mizizi Argan Oil
- Mizizi Baobab Oil
- Mizizi Black Seed Oil
- Mizizi Grape Seed Oil
- Sheba Curl Crème
- Sheba Instant Conditioner
- Sheba Deep Conditioner
These products are carefully curated to promote healthy hair growth, retain moisture, and define natural curls. Sheth Naturals embraces the power of natural ingredients to nurture and restore hair to its full potential.
