  • My henna mix this time, my curls were popping after rinsing out
  • CRN Lavender Deep conditioner, this is some good stuff. Hope she sells it by itself. Moisturizing after only being on 20 minutes in the shower, creamy, emollient. Just yum! slight tingle from the peppermint. I can only imagine what heat/steam will do for it.
  • CRN Lavender Leave in Conditioner, thick, sank in and slightly curl defining.


Miss
  • My henna mix, too thick. Next time I will add more water or yogurt to thin it out. I found some still stuck to my dried hair near my nape and edges.
  • CRN Lavender Leave in conditioner, not overly moisturizing but to be fair, I used it solely after my deep conditioner was rinsed out and henna. It could very well be moisturizing on a normal wash day.

-Belle Bar #DearBlackGirl
-Natty Naturals Leave In & Conditioner
-Camille Rose Natural Coconut Water Setting Creme

For the past 2 washes....I’ve just had incredible moisture, softness, and shine.

I’ve been able to keep my hair stretched/enlongated (I wash in 6 sections) but the back 2 sections have been a little difficult to wash and detangle lately. Gonna monitor this the next two washes to see if this is something that I’m causing.

NEW HIT:

-Care Free Curl Gold Hair and Scalp Spray (I also use this as a refresher spray, leaves me moist, soft and shiny hair for days)

-Care Free Curl Gold Curl Activator - Moisturizes my hair very well

-Blue Magic Grease (original 'blue' one) seals in my CFCG and keeps my hair moisturized better than any other sealer I have ever used on my hair.

Using my shea blend to seal my hair. My hair is soft and fluffy

Miss

Using my shea blend to seal my hair with. Shea butter always leaves my hair with a dull film. I can never use shea butter religiously. On my body, yes , hair no. Its too heavy and waxy. No matter how I blend it down and whip it with other blends. Imma still use it though, LOL.

Tentative hits

Stimugro Chebe oil and leave in conditioner. They both are creamy. Slightly fragrant and sunk into my hair. My twists are slightly sheeny. Firm to the touch due to the coconut oil. I’ll see how the twist out looks later on. It’s rainy here so my hair is expanding.

Hair is looking great on the twist out side. Dull as usual because of the Shea but in the office it feels plush. I only walked outside for a few minutes on my way in to the building so it didn't expand too much. I can dig it!

Beautiful defined curls! This is with no product right?? Can I ask your regimen and what products do you think helped you achieve such definition?

My henna blend, great color coverage on my greys. The reddish hue is beautiful
CRN Lavender Deep conditioner, love the peppermint tingle, the slip and moisture. I'll buy when or if she sells it by itself
Bobeam Cocoa Condish, BAE still and IT was in my hoard for a year. I forgot I had a full jar. Creamy, moisture, just yum!
Taura Amore Leave in lotion, able to detangle with, sank into my strands, and my hair feels lightweight at almost 98% dry


Miss

Stimugro Chebe Shampoo, I should have used it to wash my hair before my henna and not after. Too stripping. Lots of lather and not moisturizing. I think this would be a good clarifier for buildup and dirty hair. A once a month usage.
Not replacing my steamer yet- I need to get on it asap

Taura Amore Leave in Lotion. I didn't expect much because of the shea butter but I like it a lot. It sank in, dried lightweight and when the heat hit my strands, my hair was almost silky. The Butter blend complimented the lotion. Side bonus is the definition. I wasn't looking for it because I only wanted to stretch my hair but very nice!
