I recently got this Afro by nature banana milk 2 in 1 conditioner, I had heard nice things about it so I decided to try it for myself.
It’s a 2 in 1 conditioner which means it can be used as a deep conditioner and as a leave in. It claims to beade made with natural ingredients so it’s safe to say it’s safe to eat, side eyes at my people who eat everything.
Afro by nature 2 in 1 banana milk conditioner is a made in Nigeria product, I have a thing for made in Nigeria products and I’ve decided to use more of them.
It comes in a 500 ml pump bottle. The conditioner has runny consistency, just as the name implies, it looks like milk but a thicker kind of milk, very thoughtful of the manufacturer to package it in a pump bottle. The only problem I had with my pump was that the pump refused to lock whenever I tried to lock it, I had to use extra pressure and I would always end up spilling the product so I just let it be, I loved the conditioner too much to let it spill every single time.
I’m not good at describing the smell of products, I did like the smell. I asked my siblings, one said it smelt like it had a bit of ginger in it and the other said it smelt like it had banana lol!

How I used it
I used it more as a leave in than as a deep conditioner. I however did not follow the instruction to add some water to it in a spray bottle. I usually sprayed a bit of water on my hair, then I pumped a little quantity on my palm and applied to the length of my hair. Sometimes I covered with a plastic cap for a few minutes because my hair is low porosity and other times I did not, then I sealed with my butter blend.
As a deep conditioner, I followed the instructions this time, added an egg yolk to the banana milk conditioner and mixed it up nicely in a plate. I applied it to my hair in sections of course, I left it in for about 20 minutes after which I rinsed out.
How well did it work?
I loved my results every single time. When used as a leave in, my hair stayed moisturised for days sometimes for as long as one week when I put it my my new found love bantu knots.
I remember one time when I styled my hair in a bun and my sister told me my hair felt like cotton, I was so happy lol!
I bought it from a vendor in Portharcourt, you can find them on instagram @hairlicioushub for N2,500. The delivery was swift, it was delivered in about two hours after I placed an order. I received the full product range as a PR package. You can shop directly on the Afrobynature website or place your orders via Instagram
I loved the results, it delivered on its promises. So would I repurchase? Yes I would and I would also recommend it to my readers and friends too.
