To quote LL Cool J, don’t call it a comeback, Afro Sheen has been here for years!
The iconic hair brand became a household name in the late ’60s and ’70s during the Afro era before becoming dormant in the 1990s. However, 20 years later, Afro Sheen has been relaunched with a new line of unisex products that are now available online as well as in Walgreens, Sally Beauty, and Walmart.
“Our hair is a pivotal element in our self-expression and cultural identity,” said Kelly Keith, Afro Sheen’s vice president of marketing, said in a press release. “This mission to maintain our authentic, unapologetic, and influential nature is critical for Afro Sheen. Our new collection is designed to keep hair moisturized, defined, and healthy–for all textures and styles. Nine all-new products, formulations, and packaging reflect the evolved consciousness and needs for today’s culture creator.”
The latest collection’s key ingredients include coconut oil for conditioning, shea butter for moisture, and flaxseed oil for nourishment. The Afro Sheen 3-IN-1 Nourishing Oil will be available exclusively at Walgreens.
