    Thanks! I have the decadence no poo and I like it but I keep hearing that the original is more moisturising

    Yeah this is good but I don't like the texture/consistency. The shampoo is good also.

    Miss: These vendors holding on to Black Friday sale info like it's the secret to eternal life. Give up the deets or miss these coins. Nobody got time to be playing with y'all every year.

    For some reason I thought you'd already tried it. It's kinda runny and jellyish.

    Hit

    SM low porosity leave in conditioner. Still a hit. I’ll buy back up eventually. I think this might be my go to leave in during the winter while wig wearing. Hair super moist.

    Hit:
    As I Am Scalp Care Cowash - it's thicker than the original and give a little bit of a tingle. Nice to use for detangling too (@shawnyblazes)

    Meh:
    As I Am Scalp Care Conditioner - it's ok. I could detangle with it but I don't see it replacing anything I current like. Could be a little more moisturizing but didn't have any negative effects on my hair

    @Lita Do you make the Fermented Rice Water rinse and leave in yourself, or were you able to purchase it from somewhere? I've always been so curious about it.

    It smells medicated but it doesn't stink. Also doesn't linger once I applied my leave in and gel

    @missyanne Hi!Its a homemade oil..I take a fresh aloe leaf,slice in 3 pieces,peel,take the jelly part place in blender.Take a raw purple onion slice it in 4 pieces,place in blender,take 2 tablespoon of jojoba oil & teaspoon of jbco or oil of your choice,add 3 drops peppermint eo,5 drops of lavender eo.Turn blender on high making sure it blends into a nice liquid,pour into a strainer with a jar or cup underneath.put into a bottle of choice place in refrigerator,it will last for 2 weeks,you only need to apply it directly on your scalp.
    "THIS MIXTURE IS VERY STONG BUT THE LAVENDER OR EO OF YOUR CHOICE WILL COMBAT THE SMELL"

    www.amazon.com have a great selection of already made oils..

    Happy Hair Growing!

    Miss: Getting distracted and over-bleaching the knots on my wig. I had plans on wearing it today. (Although I still might...with a slap on lol)

    Hit from a miss: Knowing what to use and how long to process should I decide to color this wig

    I don't know if I already mentioned Garnier Fructis Legendary Olive somewhere, but it's my new bff. I hate most creams, but it doesn't smell too strong and it actually moisturizes my hair instead of making it sticky. I love it SO MUCH *screams*
