I didn’t think I would love the Cantu acv mix as much as I do, I want it forever

Mega Hit
Bekura Beauty Leche Conditioner. Oh my, this stuff here made my hair soft AND moisturized. It has slip, detangles, and smells heavenly . I used a small amount as a leave-in underneath the Tonga mousse. I'm going to order the 12 oz jar while there is free shipping . Oh by the way, it has dimethicone in it, but cones don't bother my hair.

Major hit!!
Achieving a one-product wash n go with Fantasia Argan oil Curl Pudding. This looks like a slightly gelatinous cream, but this is definitely a gel. It has really good hold. It also is moisturizing enough on its own. I am on day 3 and it still has hold and looks good.

Finally realizing that I get the best definition by styling damp to nearly dry hair, not wet. So I have to towel dry before applying products, especially for a wash n go.

I can refresh/moisturize my wash n go by spraying with my aloe and water mix, sealing with a "shine spray" (which is basically liquid silicone) and shaking my hair. It falls like I set it and there is little to no manipulation.

Hit: Bekura Y.A.M. - I used it on one section of extremely tangled hair, with NG Marshmallow Root DC on the other 3 sections. It was kinda difficult to spread but emulsified faster than I thought it would. I detangle in the shower as I rinse out my DC and I was shocked at how easy it was compared to how it felt going on plus all the tangles I had. After I finished, my hair still felt smooth and moisturized, which I've never felt from any DC I've ever used. I thought my hair was fine before but it always felt slightly rough and dry after rinsing, not a big deal because I moisturize twice and seal after. Now I know what a really moisturizing DC is and I'll always repurchase this.

Miss: The price of Bekura Y.A.M. :cry3:

Hit: Hennasooq Sweet Honey hair mask - It gives me very similar results to Y.A.M at half the price but it's not a repurchase because the honey they use makes my hands itch like crazy.

Miss: Every other DC I've ever used lol. I'll add some oil and honey to the rest of my DCs to see if that helps. Thankfully, I only keep a few at a time. Currently NG Marshmallow Root and Indian Rose Clay.

Miss: The new scent of NG Marshmallow Root DC. I bought a 32oz and missed that she changed the scent. It's barely tolerable now and I'll never repurchase. The previous scent was amazing :cry:

Thank you! I didn't even think of that. I'm very picky about scents, I always choose unscented when there is an option. That's the main reason I'm not a bigger pj. I usually hate anything that isn't peppermint or really subtle.
@Artemis24
I would Convo her and tell her you purchased 32oz's of a DC'er and the scent is nauseating and you don't think you'll be able to finish it and if she has any suggestions? She normally has excellent CS.

And then next time you order it go to "Request Custom Order" and ask for Peppermint or Unscented or the Original Scent.

But I would definitely tell her about my 32oz Jar that is making me sick.:barf:

btw: How does it smell?:look:

Miss:

Alikay Naturals Avocado Mask. The smell is so bad, I couldn’t take it. And this is coming from someone that used to use Amla Oil. I reached out to Alikay and the smell they describe is definitely not what I smell. I bought it from Amazon and, thankfully, they refunded my coins. I will try again in the future.

Hits:

-Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration mask
-Beauty & Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Conditioner

Both of these conditioners smell so good. I actually used them together and my hair feels really nice. The Beauty & Planet is my favorite because it doesn’t contain any glycerin. It’s just a bit too runny for me.

Because I am starting my hunt for conditioner staples (still crying about Silk Dreams), I am late with trying a lot of conditioners.

It smells like it attempted to be Cherry Almond but failed miserably. I used half the jar to rinse out henna and I'll probably use up the rest for my next henna treatment.

You Purchased a Liter. That was a Large Purchase. I would let her know.:look:

If it was 8oz's - I'd let it go, but a Liter...Yeah...I'd hafta' convo her.

Your DC'ing Sessions should be an enjoyable experience - not something you feel like YUK - lemme use this up.
