    SSI Tahiti Iced Tea. I normally dont like refresher sprays when my hair is loose. Its easier to moisture when the hair is contained but this is working well. I dont even have to massage it in. I just spray and go about my business. Instant moisture.

    New hit


    Uniqurl Aloe leave in and styler. Very moisturizing. Slip when applying and next day hair is soft. I'd like to try it on naked hair to compare straight after washing but very nice. My hair hates coconut and aloe but this doesnt feel hard or brittle at all.


    Miss

    The middle hair of my head is extra fragile, I need to stop parting my hair down the middle. Its very thin in that spot. :(

    Good to know about Uniqurl's L-I.

    I wish you woulda' gotten the DC'er so we could compare notes.:(

    I have the Leave-In too. If you continue to get good results, I might be sending that one your way. :look: (probably won't use).

    Keep me posted.:yep:

    Creme of Nature Honey Shampoo and Conditioner: The shampoo was too heavy and oily for my fine hair, the conditioner left my hair feeling stiff and stripped.

    Ayurvedic shampoo bar. Doesn't dry out my hair like other poo bars. My hair isn't falling as much.

    Acid water. My hair and face love this.

    Bekura Beauty
    Still loving the Buttermilk, Leche dc, Bahari water and Tonga mouse.

    Taura Amore Macanet Butter blend. Creamy Shea butter blend that’s melts down easily. Hair still has a slight dull hue to it but it does mix well. Might be better as a prepoo for me but I like it.

    My youngest is 6 years old and my temples didn't recover. I lost about 20% density in that area.

    I have been experimenting with many shampoos the last few weeks.

    HIT:
    Aussie miracle curls shampoo & Tresemme flawless curls shampoo: Cleanses without stripping, I can detangle with both these shampoos. They almost feel like co-washing with suds.
    Cream of nature argan oil of Morocco shampoo: Very gentle cleanser that I can partially finger detangle with easily. I may have a slight allergy from it or something, because my eyes tear up each time I use it :( Is it still a HIT? not sure lol

    MISS:
    Tresemme boutanique nourish and replenish shampoo: Made my strands feel rough and very weirdly dry. I did not like this shampoo at all.
    Garnier whole blends avocado/shea butter shampoo & Garnier whole blends honey treasures shampoo: They gave me the same result, slightly drying, cleanse well but it was nothing special.
    Camille Rose Natural Curl Love Milk: Has great slip, smells very nice, a little bit goes a long way, very moisturizing. It left my strands coated and icky. I could not stand it on, and I washed my hair asap.
    Camille Rose curl maker: I wanted this to work so bad. But it did not. it was epic fail as WNG. It had great slip, and it applied like a dream for a gel. HOWEVER, It did not last even one day, and NC weather won the battle of humidity vs curl definition. It left my strands coated as well.
    Wet extreme line gel: It did not blow my mind. Too crunchy for my liking. It did not do much for frizz even though I got nice clumps with it. I might retry this a second time just to make sure.

    If you have any drugstore shampoos you think are worth trial, let me know!

    Hit x 10: Mielle Organics Protein Free DC

    Originally, I wasn't sure if I liked this DC, but after four uses - I am hooked. I still have a little over half the jar bc this product truly goes a long way (I always mix it with Canola Oil as well). This was definitely worth $20. It has some kind of detangling property and truly hydrates my hair (my hair always coils up so much with this product, and my ends no longer felt strawlike from the coconut oil I used today). It also stops breakage from dehydration.

    Miss: Coconut Oil


    My hair can only tolerate coconut oil in well-formulated products. I’ve always known this, but wanted to revisit it as a part of my prepoo process. Mistake. The AC was on and I think it hardened the oil in my hair, defeating the purpose of reducing breakage/protein loss. I’ll stick to oils I know my hair likes.

    Curls cashmere and caviar hair masque: Very moisturizing, and left hair very manageable for styling. I had such an easier time doing my crown area. It will be added to my DC rotation for sure.

    PJN Hibiscus/Fenugreek Leave in conditioner and Cocoa/Kalahari Flaxseed Buttercream

    Moist, soft, touchable hair the next day. Smells nice too. The spots I made the braids too big in are a little damp, so I know the definition will poof eventually but overall I give them a 10!:toocool:

    Terra Veda Organix Mousse. First time trying. Defining. Holding and seems to be looking great.


    Fenugreek hair mask
    Slip detangling softening and curl popping. I’m in love. Steam made it 100 times better.

    Soultanicals Molasses deep conditioner. First it wasn't mixed well. Brown on top, yellow underneath. I re mixed it and tried it. After rinsing it out, my hair was dry and rough. I had to rewash my hair. In the garbage it went. I'll just stick with the Butta washes...
