Moisturizing shampoo: Elasta QP creme conditioning shampoo

Thanks. I think Elasta QP is owned by Kenra. The CEO is Patrick Ludwig who I don't think is black. Nice product though.

Verifen Complex Hair Care Products formerly Wanakee Verifen Products

Advanced Beneficial Phase Shampoo
Advanced Conditioning Treatment
Constant Care for Ends
Hairline Essential Cream
Hair Oil
Detangler

These products are high. None of these items need to be doctored up in any way, shape, or form. You don't need to add oil to these products, nor do you need a prepoo, hot oil treatment, conditioning wash, etc. Just use them directly. It's highly concentrated, and a little goes a long way.

Moisturizing shampoo – Nunuloveshandmade.etsy.com HONEY AND FLOWERS SHAMPOO (I’m hanging onto the last 1” in my bottle; can’t get it anymore.) I convo’ed her in Sept and she said she will we moving due to name change and will keep me updated. No word so far.
Cleansing Conditioner – Curl Junkie Daily Fix Cleansing Conditioner

Conditioner –
Beemineproducts.com Avocado Cream Balanced Conditioner
Oyinhandmade.com Honey Hemp Conditioner

Moisturizing deep conditioner –
Darcy’s Botanicals Pumpkin Seed Conditioner

Protein deep conditioner – Henna (ayurnaturalbeauty.com or hennasooq.com)

Leave in –
Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia
Afroveda’s Miss Bhree Buriti Ultra Hydrating Hair Cream
Oyinhandmade.com Hair Dew

Gel/ edge slicking product –
Uncle Funky’s Daughter Curly Magic – The only gel that gives me a defined twist-out or braid-out all day long. Also, gives me 2nd day hair.
Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha Gel – Gives me a defined braid-out/twist-out that lasts all day but does not give me 2nd day hair.

Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding and Donna Marie Curling Cream both give me a defined twist-out and braid-out but by the end of the day my hair reverts back to a cottony ball as do all other gels I’ve ever tried. No 2nd day hair EVER.

I am natural with 4C hair.

I don't know if the owner is Black, but SitriNillah by Hairveda is an awesome deep conditioner.

I have no idea who owns Aphogee, but I have only ever seen it used in Black salons. Thier moisturizing shampoo is the shiznit.
