    CP Shea Coco Hair milk. A dry formula. Not really a hair milk. It is thick like a hair cream. No moisture. No slip. A dud.
    CP Super charged moisture. This used to be a slippery serum. Now it is watery. No moisture. No slip. Another dud.

    DD went on Snapchat asking around and found a BSS open near us. We went there today and waited outside in a short line. They were letting in 10 people at a time. We bought some Kanekelon hair. We’re going to watch some videos and learn how to do some knotless box braids during the shut in. So in order to stay on topic:

    • washday
    • Nurcreations Rice water shampoo. It was moist feeling but no lather. When I rinsed it out my strands felt slightly squeaky but defined.
    • Nurcreations Fermented Rice Water Rinse and Fermented Rice Water Deep conditioner together steamed in. Hair was soft yet strong feeling.
    • SSI Tahiti Buttery Sorbet, sheen and softness
    • SST Plum Nectar Agave Curling Syrup, slight curl definition
    • Curl Origin Leave in Whipped cream, bomb as a LI. Dried soft and supple. Nothing else needed.
    Miss

    • SSI Plum Nectar Agave Curling syrup on its own is too light
    • SSI Tahiti Buttery sorbet is no longer on the website
    • Nurcreations Fermented Rice Water shampoo having no bubbles

    ooooh I’m about to look up all of these rice water products. I have been wanting to try it for a while but I was not in the spirit to make any at home.

    Brown Butter Beauty Honey Herbal Shampoo. pH 6.0. Missed that before I purchased it. Made my hair feel rough.
    Glad I only bought a sample.

    Keracare Hydrating and detangling shampoo (New holy grail product)
    Alikay Natural Essentail 17 Oil
    Kinky Curly Knot Today (used to be a staple I stopped using but gone back to)
    Soultanicals Mango Detangling Conditioner

    Misses:
    Soultanicals Afrotastic Deep conditioner - loved the way this felt when I initally applied it but once I rinsed out although it said it was a low protein my hair felt so dry so I had to follow up with a moisturising DC
    Anything protein (DCs especially) at the moment - my hair is not feeling it at all recently
    Keracare Humecto Conditioner

    SSI Barbary fig buttercream- very nice. Lighter than I expected and a much more whipped creamy consistency. Reminded me a little bit of my new love Gorgeously kinky buttercream.

    APB Garlic Oil as a hot treatment.

    Curl of Essence Rice Water Conditioner- really nice, very moisturizing. I have some masks to try from the brand so I’m happy to try them soon.


    Miss
    -SSI plum nectar shampoo. Much more stripping than I expected. I’ll give it another try but nothing is pulling me from my design essentials. I don’t need more clarifiers.

    -My decision to get back to doing more DIY products including Ayurvedic ones. Taking out my old stash and having to toss a bunch of powders. Now I’ll have to replace them. Smh.

    Getting my Philip Kingsley Elastizer Extreme pre shampoo treatment for half price on clearance.

    The online store sending me the new packaging of the conditioner even though the picture on the website clearly showed the old packaging and them overcharging me for it too.

    NegesBanda Chebe Prepoo treatment, creamy, softening and so much slip
    NegesBanda Chebe 2n1 cream ,creamy and slippery enough to detangle and set the hair
    PJN Black Rice Water Scalp Defog, did exactly what it says it does, scalp was much happier after applying and massaging.
    SSI Plum Nectar/Agave Styling Custard, the consistency is great and perfect for styling


    Miss
    NegesBanda Chebe 2n1 cream, its a slight hold to it, which I don't look for in a leave in, best suited to style hair not as a leave in right after wash day
    UPS shipping, its the third business day they didn't deliver my package but it said out for delivery. We will see what happens today
    SSI Plum Nectar/Agave Styling Custard, I need to use another leave in with this in order to not have a lot of crispy hold when the dew points aren't the best

    Miss: My Honey Child Type 4 hair cream from hattache smells like playdough and the oils are starting to separate. I think I received old stock or the product was not stored properly. Going forward, I will order directly from My Honey Child.

    @IDareT'sHair have you ordered this product recently? It used to smell like peppermint. The color is lighter too. Did she alter the formula?

    I just finished up a jar. It was perfect.:love:

    I am not sure if I got that particular jar directly from MHC, Hattache or NC?

    I am going to order another jar from my honey child and compare the two. I had my previous jar for over a year and I didn't have a single issue.

    Major hit: CR Coconut Water Style Setter for dd1. Her curls are super defined and very soft. She said she prefers wearing her hair out so I needed to find a shea free styler that wasn't going to leave her hair sticky nor crunchy.
