January 2018: Hits & Misses


Natural, 3abc/4a, Fine, medium density
Hit: keeping my hair in plaits. Since using my shea mix, I have been able to keep plaits in for more than three days. This allows for an easier wash day.
Hit: Ayurveda powders. The sky is the limit with the combinations you can make to assist you in hair growth. I currently make a hair oil, tea rinse, and shea mix. Actually, it's HG Status.
Hit: Generic H2O Bottle from Sally's. It is awesome!

Meh: Bask&Bloom Brahmi DC. You must add heat to get the best results. Your body heat is not enough. I still liked my results.

Hairveda Strinillah Deep Conditioner - left my hair soft and moisturised. I'm glad as I stock piled several jars from black friday sales.

Using one whole jar of Hairveda Strinallah Deep Conditioner over two wash days. Thats half a jar per wash day. I know I'm heavy handed but I amazed myself with how much I used and my hair isn't even thick. I'm not too mad though. I just need to adjust and try and at least stretch out a jar to 3 uses.

Hit: Redken extreme anti snap leave in treatment. I used this product 2x and both times my hair responded well using it. It left my blowdried hair straighter, softer and seem to cut the blowdry time a bit. It is a fantastic product.

Miss: Redken extreme anti snap leave in treatment. I bought this product yrs ago but never used it. Today when I pumped some of the product on my hand, brown stuff out. I just pumped until the consistency looked normal.

I really don't want to throw this product out.:cry3:

Revlon wet to dry flat iron, loves how silky and smooth my hair looked after using it. I can put down my beloved Sedu, since it no longer works.

Are you natural, texlaxed, or relaxed? Do you mind providing a product link? I googled and found several different things. TIA!

The name is incorrect, its the Remington Wet to Dry flat iron. I paid $20 from Target but its listed at $16.99 now.
Its awesome to be so cheap, It comes in 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch. I am tempted to buy another one just to have a back up.

I am natural with fine hair.

Always a hit:
Human hair wigs! I’ve been wearing the same wig every single day for over 8 months straight.

Synthetic wigs barely last a month, and if they do they look like something died on your head. I’ve spent so much money buying a new synthetic wig every month. Let’s be honest, most synthetic wigs don’t look good after 2 weeks. Overall, I spent less money purchasing one wig that I can see lasting me for more months to come. I repeat: I wear this wig EVERY SINGLE DAY and it still looks bomb.
