As many of you already know from my Instagram pictures, last year around this time, I was just returning from my travels abroad. Having spent over three months in Germany and Holland, the few natural hair products that I’d brought with me quickly ran out, so I had a bit of fun trying whatever new stuff I could find on the shelves.Needless to say, most of the products in Europe weren’t tailored to my curly, kinky (and increasingly dry) afro. Mainstream stores stocked shampoos and conditioners not meant for African tresses, and specialty shops with products I was familiar with were über expensive. I was beginning to think I’d have to depend on my bottles of sunflower and olive oil to get me by until I returned to The States.
But, then…. Twitter came to my rescue! A chance online conversation with natural hair enthusiast and entrepreneur Beryl of AfroCandy Sweets led to an invitation to hang out in Rotterdam, Netherlands that I couldn’t pass up. Before I knew it, I was on a train headed south from Den Helder to meet some of the coolest folks ever!
Rotterdam was a blast! Thanks to Beryl, I met lots of talented young artist/ entrepreneurs of color and had great conversations on everything from politics to fashion and more. I went to an entrepreneur festival, had incredible coffee, attended a few natural hair workshops, and generally was in awe of how many young professionals were living their dreams out in The Netherlands. But one of the best parts, by far, was finding an amazing new product for my natural hair!
Dominique Snip is the creator of the Sheado line of natural hair products and one of of the fabulous ladies I met on my trip. Sheado products are made with natural ingredients, cruelty free, and contain no synthetic fragrances or colours, mineral oil, petrolatum, parafin liquid, sulphates, parabens or silicones. Dominique was sweet enough to give me a few of her favorite products to try, and my hair was so grateful! After a few weeks of lackluster products, the Sheado Honey Love Hair Milk and Liquid Gold Hair Butter were like a miracle!
This year, I wanted to celebrate the awesome time I had abroad by sharing some of it with you. Dominique has been so generous to sponsor a Sheado + youngblacknappy Giveaway; one lucky winners will receive a full-sized set of the Sheado line of natural hair products and two winners will each get a sample pack of products – how awesome is that?!
First, let me tell you about the Honey Love Hair Milk. The name of this product is spot on because, not only did my love this stuff, but it left my curls feeling as smooth as honey. It’s a light, creamy hair milk containing shea butter, avocado oil, castor oil, and aloe vera that moisturizes your hair to the core. I’ve used it as a leave-in conditioner, detangler, and a refresher for a second-day twistout. Every time, my hair was in heaven!
As if the Honey Love Hair Milk wasn’t enough, the Liquid Gold Hair Butter is the pièce de résistance! To be perfectly honest, I still have half of my original bottle from a year ago, not because I didn’t love it, but because I’ve hoarded it like a crazy person for “special occasions.” Yeah, it’s that good. Shea butter, coconut oil, apricot kernel oil and mango butter take your dry, coarse curls from drab to fab in this luxurious mix. My hair was moisturized, silky, and shiny after using just a bit of this product – and my hair usually drinks up product like a kinky sponge.
I’m so excited about this giveaway because these products haven’t been easily available in the United States until now! Sheado has opened up a special US online shop for youngblacknappy readers, so go check it out and grab a couple of bottles – quick! For a lucky few, Dominique will personally be shipping Sheado to your door from The Netherlands, and here’s all you have to do to enter and WIN:
- “Like” the youngblacknappy Facebook Page.
- “Like” the Sheado Facebook Page.
- Comment below with why you want to win.
That’s it! I’ll announce the winners on Friday, July 12th, so hurry!

These products sound amazing! I would really like to try them 😀 I love the products I use now, but there are times where I just get tired of using the same old stuff. And although they work well, there are some things in the products that I am always wary of. It would be nice to try an all-natural product line for a change :))
Entry # 5
I want to win because I want a product that will make me Love my hair. I have dry, brittle hair and have not found that “key” product yet!
Entry # 6
Because this fabulous product, Honey Live Hair Milk, is the only single product that can give my son’s hair (1 year and 10 months) the good moisturise that his hair needs. Makes the curls pop and give it a nice shine. The hair looks healthy and makes it really soft 😀
Entry # 7
It would be so fun! serious, the reason why (there are a lot of them) is because I live in The Netherlands close to Amsterdam (cheaper shipment), I have tried lots of products but still don’t have found IT (if u know what i mean, you have been here), I am a fulltime mother of 2 who would like to nurture (?) herself with these products and to dream away with its exotic aromas, but most of all because
I admire all of the beautiful women who dare to be themselves with pride 😉

Entry # 11
These producst sound devine!! My 8-year old daughter and I have different hair textures, so I am trying to find products for her hair that take it from dry, frizzy and brittle to soft, fluffy and moisturized!! I love using natural products on her hair because it shows that there are people/companies that cater to her as an African-American young lady, and it shows her that her hair is beautiful and can be luxurious with some TLC!

I live and work on a small Caribbean island called Antigua. I really love natural hair products in general but a lot of the times the products aren’t readily available especially in the smaller islands. However, while browsing through a natural hair Caribbean page one day I became aware of SheaDo. Prior to that I had never heard of the line however after becoming aware of it I was interested in it mainly because it utilizes natural ingredients. I would really like to win the giveaway so that I can try the products and spread the word of SheaDo not only to persons in my country of Antigua but to persons in other islands throughout the region. ^_^

I should win the giveaway because I love to show people that you don’t have to have “good hair” to wear you’re hair naturally. I like to show people how easy it really is and that your hair is unique and that you just need the right products to have your best hair. I like to recommend products that I love to people who are newly natural or those who are debating on if they should revert back to their natural texture, so winning this giveaway would give me another product to try out and promote.
PLUS, I like to win free stuff! I mean who doesn’t?
Entry # 14
And their products are cruelty free! As an animal love, that’s all the more incentive for me to hope that I win this.
I wasn’t to win because I’m new to my natural hair “rebirth” and I want to find products that work well with my hair
Entry # 15
I want to win because I am newly natural and on the search for products that work for my hair , I would love to try these out !

Entry # 18
I’m would love to win because I’m new to what I like to call the “Natural Natural”. I’m transitioning from dreads to free natural hair. I’ve had dreads for the last 12 of 13 year. I lost myself in there for a year with a perm, which I quickly regretted. Am so new to my new hair needs that am not sure what to buy and watching my natural sisters on you tube is quite confusing!!! Everyone recommends a different product, we all have different needs but it leave a newbie with a lot of options. I visited SheaDo’s site and love what’s in each product and what it can do for a natural gal! I SO want to win, pick me pick me!! 🙂
Entry # 19

Entry # 26
I have been wearing my hair natural for 17 years now and I have been through ups and downs of many of the products out there. My daughter and I rock an Afro, but our hair texture is fine and baby soft. I would love to try these products to see how they respond to our hair texture. Because my fro is well maintained and totally, naturally outrageous, people stop me all the time to ask me how I get it that way. I would be glad to represent Sheado products for me and my daughter’s hair! Pick me!

Recently did the big chop, my hair is in need of some serious help! I’ve been using Vaseline, yes, petroleum jelly ’cause it’s the only product keeping my tresses tamed at the moment…everything else dries up my hair after a couple of hours.

Entry # 38
I have been using Sheado for about a month now and I must say, I loved it from day 1. My daughter has a kind of soft kinky hair, you know the kind that doesn’t stay in style when it is combed. Since I use the honey love haimilk and the liquid gold hair butter, her hair doesn’t only stay perfectly in style, but it feels extra soft as well; I comb through it like BUTTER and it looks terrific! I’m so in love with these products that I have decided to say goodbye to my relaxed hair myself and go natural as well, Just to enjoy my beautiful natural kinky hair again with the help of Sheado!!! I hope I win so I can go on enjoying Sheado and tell everybody about it! Go Sheado, Go!

I would love to win because I’m new to the natural world and I’m ready to try new products to see what works for me!!!! 🙂
I NEED TO WIN because my hair deserves a dedicated lover.. for years I’ve been a mediocre/sometimey lover to my hair and in most extreme cases a neglectful and abusive lover!! Needless to say I’m now paying for it with breakage, damaged, thin and brittle strands.. Just recently though my hair and I have done some couple’s therapy and tried to work out our problems. . I went natural out of hate for my hair if you can believe that. I’ve been living in Kuwait for about two years now and let me just say therr are ZERO AMERICAN STYLISTS who can give you a good relaxer and roller set.. so for the past two years its been wash braid and sew-in extensions. . Well one day I had had enough. I was sick of waiting for my next sew in and anxious to remove my tracks sk I took it down and washed my (real) hair. It was glorious!! I mean so soft and curly kinky and gorgeous! ! I’d never seen perfect little ringlets dripping wet and curling around my fingers!! But was even more amazing to me was that I was actually combing it through? !?! Where was all that nappiness and roughness I’d experienced in between waiting for my next relaxer?? Gone!! That was the first moment I realised I had “good hair” and that probably ALL BLACK WOMEN have “good hair” if we just take good care of it! ! So needless to say I’m forever DONE with the creamy crack and am now fully dedicated to embarking on this road to luscious natural locks but I need HELP!! I’m still living in Kuwait so its extremely hard for me to get ANY natural products for my hair! ! I love to use oils and butters like co onut and shea but the chances of finding them here is zilch so I’m constantlylolooking for “close to natural” products with the least amount of petroleum mineral oil and silicones as possible. . What I’m trying to say is; this is the first time in my ENTIRE LIFE that I’ve loved ME, all of me including my hair. . So I want to be a deep, passionate caring and nurturing lover to my hair!! Please if I win this contest you can bet the products WILL NOT GO TO WASTE!! thanks haha I know I’m quite verbose ♡♥♡
I really would like to try these products as the description you wrote made it sound like pure heaven for my hair. I’ll lose moisture after an hour or so and I just want that healthy shine and glow all day long!!!!
I would love to win I Just did the big chop 3 weeks ago. I’ m looking for a product to treat right My daughter and I have natural hair her fro is bigger then mines would love to find something to manage hers too. Every product I have tried doesn’t manage my hair right at all.
I read your blog about the sheado product line and I would love to be able to purchase them. I went on the website and noticed the language was not English and unfortunately I don’t understand it to make a purchase. Would you be able to assist me with being able to get a hold of the products please?
I’m friends with the creator of the line, so I can definitely get you in contact. She’s perfectly fluent in English – which is great, because my Dutch is horrible 🙂 Send me your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org with any info on which products you want, and I will forward it along to her ASAP!
Hi again, Avi!
The Sheado creator no long hosts a US version of the website, but she does ship internationally. You can email her at Info@sheado.nl to get descriptions of each of the products and to place an order. I hope that helps!
