    Absolute hits:-

    Beauty Pie Intensive Nourishing Shampoo
    I’m not usually one to rave about shampoos but this is amaaaazing! Nourishing is right, so moisturising it felt like I was rinsing out conditioner. Beautiful gentle formula you can even see a trace of the oils with it in your hands. Winner

    I’m really loving Beauty Pie hair products.

    Philip Kingsley Elasti-Styler
    This a new product like Elasticizer but a leave in version. It feels great on just washed hair - moisturising, my ends look so good when I use this.

    The APB scents I chose for my latest order. I was nervous because I picked them scent-unsmelled but Moonbeam, Illusion, Peach Bellini, and Sea Salt & Orchid are all really nice.

    Moonbeam smells most like apple to me but not sharp and sour. It’s like a soft, sparkling apple. Illusion is like a strawberry-peach pie - it’s fruity and warm at the same time. Peach Bellini is just as the name implies and Sea Salt & Orchid is a very clean, marine-floral scent. That one would probably be a good choice for a body wash

    -OMG conditioner- SO MOISTURIZING!!!! It’s just perfect. The light, creamy consistency deceived me into thinking it wasn’t heavy enough to do anything. I was so wrong. My hair was so soft and detangled so easily.

    -Honey 3N1 leave in- This product kept my hair juicy. My hair stayed mostly tangle free.

    Thanks for this! I was just about to take OMG off of my list, but I think I'll try it. What does it smell like?

    It smells light, sweet, and fruity. The smell is not overwhelming.

    Technically last month's hit:
    Gemini Naturals - Get Hued haircolor gel
    Black woman owned company!

    It's great and super vibrant on dark hair. I got the small jars of Midnight and Purple Rain. I've used Midnight.

    I tried it on damp hair for my first use. I washed my hair, added leave-in and a little oil, then applied the gel in sections, raked it through that section and twisted each section. I added more later that week, this time on dry hair and added oil on top. It is definitely more vibrant when applied on dry hair. I applied starting a few inches from my root and going to the ends of my hair.

    I wore two sleeping caps the first night in case of transfer. Then I went back to wearing one cap. The transfer is pretty minimal. Now it does get on your hands anytime you use them to style your hair but it rinses off easily with just water. In fact I forgot to wear gloves when trying it for the first time and it rinsed off easily then. But be warned before you run your hands through your hair lol. It's been two or three weeks and only a little bit transfers to my hands now. It does flake a little bit when re-styling.

    It's a bit messy to apply from the jar. It rinsed away easily and didn't leave any stains.

    My hair feels good. Not dry at all. Felt softer than normal actually.

    Midnight looks like a light purple with pink tones on my highlighted ends. I like the contrast.

    Pattern Beauty Wide Tooth Comb: Wide tooth combs in general are already great for my hair, but this one takes the cake. It has really long teeth and spacing of the teeth is just a bit farther apart than other wide tooth combs. It allows me to detangle quicker, in larger sections and minimizes breakage

    EDENBodyWorks Almond & Marshmallow Split End Repair Masque: It's moisturizing and strengthening and has great slip. I've noticed less shedding/breakage over the weeks I've tried it. But what really sells it is that it comes in a 16 oz jar for $9. Really can't beat that price point especially as my hair grows longer
