    Okay...this is just too funny!

    I'm gonna go with the oh so wonderful Pink Oil Moisturizer, brown gel that turned my skin a totally different freakin color, and lastly....B&B grease. My mom used to lather my scalp with that mess and it didn't do anything but clog my pores and make me smell like coconut.

    Cantu shea butter leave in. Made my hair dry and break off and I was mad about it to. That stuff gave me the best looking curls before I realized this was making my hair break off.

    I co-sign on the Cantu Shea Butter leave in. It worked great for me and it smelled amazing. However I only used this twice (about a week apart) and the build-up was out of control by the second time I used it. Not wanting to accuse the product I thought I just had dandruff until I came on here and saw others complaining about it. Now I'm stuck with a practically full jar that it useless.

    ETA: How could I forget Dr. Miracles. What a joke! I bought that **** in high school/college thinking I was really doing something :lol: Their grow-balm or whatever it's called reeks and has zero results! I usually waited to apply DRM before bed but once I applied it before I went out with friends. While we were on the metro all they could talk about was the strong smell of cloves. They talked about it so much that other people around us started chiming in. I was so ashamed that I couldn't even bear to tell them it was my hair. I told them it was a sandwich in my bag :rofl:

    You know, if you read the back of an Scurl No-drip bottle it says this:

    "For additional conditioning, apply Luster's Pink Oil Moisturizer Hair Lotion to hair and scalp atleast two(2) times a week to seal in moisture."

    So thats why it makes peoples hair dry, it has to be used as a "sealant" or not used at all. Anything that says "Oil Moisturizer" will get the side-eye:)eye:) from me...these products usually have mineral oil or petrolatum high up on the list and should only be used AFTER a regular moisturizer. :yep:

    Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner-Overpriced and did nada for my hair.

    Aubrey Organics White Camelia Conditioner-same as above

    Lustrasilk Moisture Max Lotion-As bad as the Pink oil one.

    Queen Helene Cocoa Butter Smoothing Conditioner- runny with no moisture or slip.

    Dr. Bronner's Magic Organic Hair Creme Lavender Coconut -Drying

    Fantasia IC Deep Penetrating Creme Moisturizer-Possibly the worst conditioner I've ever used in my life. Hair was dried to a crisp and tangled to boot.

    Taliah Waajid Protective Mist Bodifier-Very drying and not detangling

    Sheamoisture Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner-Overpriced and drying

    I hate this product!!! It was the reason why I started on my HHJ (so I guess I should be grateful). I was using this when it caused my relaxed hair to lock and dread. :nono: Never again!
