Afro hair

Putting together a gift basket for a friends birthday.

So far includes;

Bath bomb
Body butter
Face mask

I want to add a hair mask and usually I use Aussie 3 minute miracle but it dawned on me that I've no idea if it's suitable for her hair type, she is mixed race with Afro hair.
Anyone help?

Yes it will be fine but realistically she might not end up using it. maybe add something else like a mini bottle of prosecco/something edible?

Goast she's on a major diet / t total for now. Will give her flowers also smile

Ha - ok fair enough! I only say it as 1. no two types of Afro hair are the same, you go from vaguely kinky to it being like a sponge. And 2. in my experience people with Afro hair tend to have tried and tested products they use. But I'm sure she will appreciate it either way - you sound like a lovely friend!

Tangle teezer great for afro hair

Body scrub is a good shout, don't know why I didn't think to add it!

She already has a couple of tangle teasers I'm sure smile
