Products I’m Currently Using & Why
I wouldn’t consider myself a product junkie because although I like to try new products; Regardless of how much I like the product, I will try to use it up before I get a new one. That’s just how I am. Unless it’s like an EPIC FAIL and it’s just doing no justice whatsoever.
- Profectiv Mega Growth Break Free Daily Leave In Strengthener
I love this stuff. If you’re the type of person that doesn’t like different types of weird ingredients that we hardly can pronounce or dyes, then you might not like this one. Right now I don’t really mind it. It makes me hair so manageable & soft. It’s a great moisturizer. My sister actually recommended it to me. I’m completely out. I would repurchase if I wasn’t on a hunt for something new.
2. Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
Ok guys, you know I’ve already talked about my love|hate relationship with this product. Initially it was making my hair feel dry. Even though it’s a jar of the best ingredients. Nevertheless, I was determined to find an alternative. I feel that it works best with other products, such as olive oil or conditioner. I simply can’t use this alone. Which is why I wouldn’t repurchase. I don’t like going through the hassle of tweeking to my liking.
3. Nexxus Pro Mend Split End Remedy Conditioner
I bought this from Wal Mart a while back, before I had any intentions of going natural, because I wanted something to cater to my split ends. I’m not pretty sure if it works that much. I haven’t seen a huge difference with my ends. I recently trimmed them. I more so like it for a Co Washing and it’s been doing the job. It’s also what I use before I shampoo my hair to detangle my hair! It works like a charm. I don’t think I would repurchase because I plan on trying out a cheaper conditioner like VO5 for co washing, because I believe this was on the pricey side, but other than that it’s great!
4. Suave Naturals Aloe & Ginseng Shampoo & Conditioner
This is going on my second bottle of Suave’s shampoo and conditioners. Before this I had Black Raspberry & White Tea. Anyways…. I love suave first because it’s so inexpensive! & It gets the job done. I’m not going to pay an arm and a leg for something that is going to be washed down the drain. I find that this particular one gets my hair SUPER DUPER clean, to the point where it almost strips my hair, which I don’t really like. It could be the aloe that’s in it. I have to use a lot of conditioner just to get my hair to feel the way I like. Once this bottle is done I don’t think I’ll go back to it. I love suave in general just not this particular one too much.
5. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Now this is a staple product of mine. I HAVE to have it. Lol! Since I stopped using grease on my scalp this is what I’ve been using to oil my scalp and to seal moisture in my hair. It has never lead me the wrong way. It gives me a healthy shine & makes it more manageable.
6. Rosemary Oil
Sometimes I add just a few drops of this to my Olive Oil. I wouldn’t recommend using essential oils on their own, simply because they’re so potent. It’s great if you have an itchy scalp and you just want to soothe it. I’ve read that it simulates hair follicles which promotes growth & health! It also gives a nice cooling sensation.
6. Jamaican Black Castor Oil
Now I’ve heard a lot of positive things about this product. My cousin loves it so she got it for me. I figured I’d give it a try. I must warn you it is very thick. That can be a bit of a turn off to some. So I add it to my olive oil so it’s not as….dense. So far I like it. My scalp hasn’t been itchy and it doesn’t get a dry as fast. A little goes a long way. There’s no need to have a heavy hand with this.
There’s no way I could forget about this. Whether you’re drinking it or using it on your hair, water is a MUST. It’s not only beneficial for your hair, but your overall health! If we keep our body hydrated on the inside, it will reflect on the outside.
