Continued Hits (in no particular order):
JMonique Naturals Cleansing Conditioner
The Mane Choice Green Tea & Carrot Reconstructor
Cantu ACV Root Rinse
Hairveda Conditioners: MoistPRO/Moist-24/7/ Acai Phyto Berry/ Red Tea and Step#2 of the Methi Set
Shea Olein- It’s the only oil that I can use for oil rinsing
SHESCENTIT Marumallow DC- a little goes along way; it’s heavenly when I use with Shea Olein during my oil rinsing session
Bobeam conditioner- the best leave-in cream to me; it layers/pairs very well with my other products; I notice a difference in how much moisture is maintained if I don’t use it; well on it’s way to holy grail status
Sirod Naturals Fermented Rice Leave-in- the best leave-in liquid to me; has slip; helps to clump my curls; my scalp feels great; vital part of my WNG layering; HOLY GRAIL STATUS
Stunnababez Leave in, my scalp just feels so good after using this.
So I really need to buy this huh!?
Yes!!! I really like it @BrownBetty
Cream and Coco Orange Marmalade Jelly , the consistency is like jelly. It has a high sheen. Its LOVELY. The smell, eh but the performance is nice. Im not buying it for regular price of $25.00 though
And $8 bucks for shipping.
ETA: I really like Cream & Coco, but they are woefully overpriced.
Yup, and Im not repurchasing anything from her. Great product though @IDareT'sHair
I have a couple DC'ers from her and a couple Body Creams (I've been holding onto).
I have a Tincture Oil Box (Summer) and almost done with what I think might be my last Spun Sugar Reconstructor?
I said this x2 Spun Sugar Reconstructor's ago - they won't die.
Will finish up everything and not repurchase.
I have 2 full bottles of the Spun Sugar. I'll get to them. Half a bottle of a open one too @IDareT'sHair
Dudley's DRC 28 Protein Treatment - used it today after months of NOT using it and noticed a huge reduction in breakage so yeah...I can't afford to run out of this one again.
Dudley's Cream Protein - never used this one before today and realized I have been missing out on the softness and moisture in my hair after washing out the DRC 28 Treatment. They really do go together very very well.
The price of both was not bad either - $44.50 for the 16 oz bottle of DRC 28 and $21.50 for the liter size jar of Cream Protein for a total of $65.00 including VAT. Not bad at all. I am so happy about this.

Major hit: Redken all soft shot phase deep treatment, wow my hair is silky and shiney

CONTINUED HITS (in no particular order):
SSI Seyani Butter
SSI Marshmallow & Marula
CRN Herbal Tea Silk & Soften Oil
Hi @ Aggie, my hair is relaxed
Okay thank you.
Cream and Coco Edible Cherry Vanilla Marshmallow Massage Creme. Very nice. Creamy. Lightly scented and moisturizing. I wonder how this would feel on my hair.
Hit : Design Essential Daily moisturizer.
Eden body works butter for hair and body . Works well on both
Miss : none
Miss Jessie's Honey Curls Sweet Almond Oil & Honey
It's definitely my new fav! It's a cream styler, that is moisturizing, humidity resistant, provides curl definition, medium hold, and it works fast.
1st usage, I applied it on damp hair (like from the directions), and had the one of the best wash n gos for a lightweight cream styler. It has some slip, but fast absorption. I was able to apply it and have instant curl definition. I didn't have to work it in. This definitely comes in handy (when in a rush).
2nd time around, I applied on more wet-to-damp hair, and that's wherein I noticed it had more slip. I may have over applied it in some sections, but I was rushing this morning (so my attention was all over the place).
Again, this took way less time to use on sections of my hair. It's very hot/humid today, it's nearly dry now, and there's no additional frizz. More like I have a little more volume, but the curls remain intact.
Even in the areas where I was a little heavy-handed, my hair isn't weighed down.
Butters (of any kind)
Sweet Almond Oil
Overall I'd say this is a 9/10.
Only because, I prefer my products to have more slip (if not a butter product).
Medium porosity, low density, thin strands, type 3
Mielle Pomegranate Curling Custard- my curls were very defined, but soft. I was able to get 2-day hair, but the hold is too light to go past day 2. I enjoyed the touch ability of my hair and the movement.
Since, I need more hold, I’m going to pair this with CRN Curl Maker. I read on another site that these two products pair well together.
Hit: eco styler coconut gel.
After hearing so many bad reviews of it online, and only getting meh results with some of the more popular eco stylers (the cannabis gel),
I tried the coconut because I needed add more protein to my hair in daily styles. (I'm suffering from mild hygral fatigue)
Coconut gel makes my curls be popping! I.am.in.love!
I love the hold, the texture, the shine, the moisture. Its good!
Miss: (for now)
Mane choice 24k twisting gel...
Didn't really work out for me and give me the results I've seen others achieve online and in real life.
I will pair it with another combo and try it again next wash day.
I've been curious about this. Thanks for sharing.
Mielle and CRN do pair very well together. It took a while for my hair to dry at the roots (I’m hi-po). If you are lo-po, it may take your hair longer to dry than normally acceptable. My hair is not fluffy, which I like since I must wear a cover when I’m outside. I still have bounce and movement. I will report back to provide a reference on how many days my WNG lasted with this product combination.
I’m about to try the mielle organics today for a washngo but I always pair soft gels with something hard hold on top.
Product Junkie Naturals Rice Water Wet Dream Deep condish. The slip was amazing. The detangling was delightful. I feel like I met a good man and his credit score was in the 800s with all his teeth. Lawd. This stuff is decadent.
Shescentit Tahiti Conditioning Cowash does the job. Cleanses. Softening. Moisturizing and smells like a light cotton candy in a breeze somewhere. After rinsing my hair was light and airy.
Product Junkie Naturals Rhassoul Clay
Tingling. Softening and my hair felt good after rinsing. Consistency was thin enough to spread but not too thin to drip. (It did stick to some parts of my hair that had product )
Extreme Moisture Deep Conditioner. Even with Shea butter it sank in and rinsed nicely. Probably would have been better if I left it in longer but I was in a rush.
