She Tried It! Nubian Heritage’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Moringa Hair Line Uses Quinoa, Fennel & Kale To Repair Your Hair

July 17, 2015  |  


First things first, EVOO is not some magical new hair supplement or oil. It stands for Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

And unless you’re a hair guru, that acronym probably left you looking just as confused as I was when I received this product. I literally was walking around telling people, “Yeah, I have this EVOO product I’m going to check out. See what it’s about…” Hey, once you know better, you do better, right?

But despite my initial confusion about what it was I was putting in my hair, there is no confusion when I say that Nubian Heritage’s extended EVOO & Moringa line (not the original “repair and extend” offerings), with its additional ingredients of quinoa, fennel and kale (yes, all the healthy food you try to avoid eating), is a must-have for #teamdryhair. In case you missed the memo, I’m a card-carrying member of the crew.

But seriously, the product did wonders for my locs, which despite my best attempts to apply a few different oils and “milks,” often feel crunchy after the fact. No more! I have the shampoo, conditioner and deep conditioning cream to thank for such relief. The products are rich with not only olive oil but vitamins A and E. And the addition of moringa oil, which contains oleic acid, antioxidants and vitamins, deeply conditioned and rejuvenated my hair. The sulfate-free shampoo left my hair with some nourishment and shine, and the conditioning cream, which I’m crazy about and also includes quinoa and fennel, made my hair soft and strong days after wash day. And, of course, all Nubian Heritage products include Shea butter in some fashion, and those fatty acids are always good for penetrating parched strands. Another great thing about the products is that they are color-safe and natural, so they won’t do a doozy on your summer color.

If you’re interested in trying the products, Nubian Heritage collections can be found at Vitamin Shoppe, including through their website, as well as on All three staples of the collection aren’t too hard on your wallet, with the EVOO & Moringa shampoo and the conditioner going for around $11 each, and the conditioning cream, which can be used daily as you please, running customers $14.99 for a large 12 oz. container. If you need a little something extra to give you a sleek look and even protect your strands from heat damage (something I obviously don’t need), you will also be glad to know that the line also has a styling spray ($14.99 for a 4fl. oz.) and a heat protectant mousse ($11.99 for a 7.5 oz. bottle). Dry and damaged hair be damned!
