    Hits

    Product Junkie Naturals Whipped Creamy Flaxseed Gel Buttercream, lovely, softening and smells like lemongrass. Had the little ones hair very nice

    SSI Okra Hair Repair Growth Oil/Spray, Great ingredients, alleviated my dry scalp and helping me keep my braids in check

    Tentative Hit


    As I Am JBCO Water, as a protective style spray, my scalp wasnt irriated, the hair closest to the scalp was soft and moisturized. Smells great

    SSI Tahiti Cowash
    SSI Marumallow DC
    Sulfur 8 and Doo Gro Hair Vitalizer mixed together
    Sirod Naturals Rice Milk Leave-in
    Nitrile Gloves- my nails are like talons, no matter how much I file them. These gloves save my hair.

    My hair really missed protein. Monthly protein treatments, with Mizani Kerafuse, wasn't enough. My weekly routine now consists of OGX Poo, SSI Cowash, OGX Conditioner, then SSI DC. My hair is more resilient now.

    New Hit: Design Essentials Honey Creme Moisture Retention Super Detangling Conditioning Shampoo - I don't like the bubble gum ball smell, but it is the first moisturizing shampoo I've used that actually feels like it doesn't strip my hair at all. I feel like I could use it daily. After use, my hair feels like it does after rinsing out a clay treatment mask - strengthened and moisturized. It even feels defined like after clay, but without the clay mess. This shampoo lathers like crazy, so a little goes a long way.

    I love the Sirod Naturals Rice Milk Leave-in! The smell is very herbal, so it may take some getting use to. I use it as an LIC, curl refresher, and to moisturize my scalp.

    Hit: Aphogee keratin and green tea leave in. I hardly saw any broken tiny hairs after using it so I think it's working. Plus it doesn't make my hair hard like some proteins do.

    Hit

    As I am Naturally So Much Moisture Hydrating Lotion

    It's very watery. Ive been adding it to the loose hair in the back of my head. Yesterday at work I noticed the hair was firm and thought blah. It's probably because glycerin is number 2 on the ingredient list. I sealed it in with Shea butter the night before. So I untwisted the hair and it was softer and defined. Twisted it back up and got home. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY my hair became like butter!!!The house was warm and toasty. It was so satiny and supple, which leads me to believe this will work better in the spring and summer due to the dew points and glycerin. I'll keep it until then and bring it back out.

    Hit: Design Essentials gentle balance shampoo. I thought it would not "clean" my hair because it says gentle and sulfate free. I am surprised my hair is clean, light bouncy and shiny. I love this:love2:
