Are your products curly girl friendly?

Yes, all of our afro hair products are curly girl friendly. This means that they do not contain any sulphates (SLSs), silicones, waxes or drying alcohols. Whilst our products are curly girl friendly, remember they are not just for girls! 

Can I use your products on my children?

Yes, all Shedid & Parrish hair care products for curly hair are made from 100% natural vegan ingredients. They are naturally gentle on all hair and scalps. As with trying all new products a patch test is recommended.  

Where and how are your products made?

Our founder, Jessica, partnered with a biochemist in South Africa to develop a product range specifically for curly and textured haircare, which is where it is produced. All our products are made in accordance with EU law and in line with Good Manufacturing Practice standards.

I have sensitive skin can I still use your products and are they allergy-free?

All of our products are natural and specially formulated to be extremely gentle, being as simple as possible in formulation, even for the most sensitive of skin types. However, we recognise that your body is unique and we cannot guarantee any one ingredient or product to be completely allergy-free for everyone. If you have sensitive skin we recommend that you do a patch test on your wrist, inner elbow or behind your ear, prior to using any of our products for the first time.

Are your products gluten-free?

50% of our range is gluten-free. Our Deep Cleansing Shampoo, Afro Butter and Curl Styler are completely gluten-free. Our Deep Restoring Conditioner, Silky Leave in Conditioner and Curl Control Serum whilst not containing gluten as a main ingredient could contain trace amounts from the production process. 

What COVID measures do you have in place?

Our products are made in a secure production facility in Cape Town, South Africa. They are made in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice Standards and are fully compliant. Once shipped to the UK, our products are stored, picked and packed in a COVID safe facility in Kent and then distributed out. Extreme care is taken throughout the production and distribution chain.
