Black Pearl by Pearl Thusi- Shampoo

The Black Pearl Line is a collaboration with Afro Botanics which is a proudly South African brand. The shampoo is an enhanced moisture sulfate-free shampoo made with Aloe and Shea. 

Packing: The packing in my opinion is simple. You can see the color of the shampoo which is yellow. The bottle is wrapped in black and the writing on the packaging is yellow, green and white. There is an expiry date on the bottle which is really good. I always appreciate when brands and products have an expiry date on them. The instructions on how to use the shampoo is also on the bottle. It states that you. Use apply a generous amount of shampoo and lightly rub it onto your scalp. It also says that you should follow up with The Afro Botanics Conditioner. The rating I am going to give for Packaging is 3 out of 5. 


Price: I bought the shampoo from Clicks, and I paid R 63.95. I thought that the price was good, not too cheap and not too expensive, even though the shampoo bottle is small. The rating i am going to give for Price is 3.5 out of 5. 

Application: The shampoo does not come out of the bottle easily and it comes out in big clumps making the application difficult. The shampoo is think, making distribution difficult. When the shampoo is in your hands, it does not spend evenly for distribution. The rating I am going to give for Application is 2.5 out of 5. 

Quality & Size: The size of the shampoo is 250ml. In my option it is too small, you guys know how much I love a good amount of product. It is a sulphate-free shampoo which is good and it contains aloe and shea which adds moisture into the hair shaft. The rating I’m going to give it for Quality & Size is 3 out of 5.

Results: I actually liked the results. I was pleasantly surprised by how hydrated my hair was after using the shampoo. It didn’t strip my hair or leave it tangled and difficult to detangle. The rating I’m going to give it for Results is 4 out of 5.

I was really happy that I tried this shampoo, it isn’t something that I would personally repurchase, but as I said I am glad that I tried it. Try it and make your own assessment of the shampoo and the brand.

  1. Hi*

    I have a question regarding reviews on products.

    How does one get you to review their products. I have a brand of natural hair products and would appreciate the feedback, whether good or bad.

    I’m currently just ironing out a few wrinkles regarding the packaging, but once that’s done, I would love to have you review some of my products.

    I would appreciate information on how to go about that, once I have the products ready for you.

    Thank you in advance


    1. Hi Weza, I review products on my own. I buy products and share my thoughts independently. Many brands choose people on social media and send them products and it’s up to those people if they want to post a video (Review) or social media posts on them. Brands also pay people to review their products on YouTube or social media. Then there are PR companies that ask people if they would like to review a product. At times money is charged and at times it’s not. The PR companies send people the products with a written contract that they will feature the products/ review them on all social media platforms. Send me a PM message on Facebook(Racquel.TheCurlFactory) or a DM on Instagram (Racquel CurlFactory) and we can chat about me reviewing your products. I look forward to seeing a message from you.
