*cough* with the exception of those Wigs.....you did pretty good this month.
I really try hard to NOT shop for wigs but I still find myself being pulled onto those sites no matter how hard I fight not to go.
Nevertheless, thanks hon.
TMC's Prickly Pear Overnight Mask smells nice and so does SSI's Cowash.
Let's try to knock out the rest of 2019 with very 'minimal' purchases.
July has always been hard for me to get through because of the 4th of July Sales.
This is my aim but I will be getting a few Nairobi products to try them out. I need to know how well they work on my hair as a backup to the Dominican hair products I'm using.
Remember I have to make the transition to a new hair care line when the DR distributor leaves the island which should be sometime this year or next year. I'm not taking any chances.
I already use the Nairobi Detox Shampoo and I tell you that shampoo is really good and does not leave hair feeling stripped. I've been checking reviews on some of their other products and so far, it seems to be a well-liked product line overall. So I think I'm heading in the right direction.
I will list what I will be getting in the Nairobi line once I've gone through the entire catalog. You know me, I always buy large bottles and jars of stuff to last me a while.
Oh yeah, I forgot about those @IDareT'sHair. Get what you need, not what you want. That should help a little.
Well, at least we both seem to have a "Plan" on how to get there.
I know our stashes are I'gnant. Everybody in here stash is on Swole.
I have some really good stuff in my Stash and I need to be about using it.
I already had to pitch a 16oz Jar of Alikay's Honey & Sage DC'er that went bad.
I'm set for the next coupla' years.
I agree Nairobi is nice. I'd be curious to see what's on your list.
Imma keep diggin' deep till times get better.
About the remaining Nairobi Hair products, here is what I came up with for purchase:
Nairobi Hydrating Detangling Shampoo (moisture shampoo)
Nairobi Pamperfuse Conditioner (an everyday leave-in for limp, lifeless, dry, damaged hair)
Nairobi Pamperplex Hair Fortifying and Strengthening Conditioner (great after a color/henna treatment
Nairobi Pamper Pak Mask (great after any color, detangles, corrects dry, damaged hair)
Nairobi Detoxifying Shampoo (gentle enough to use weekly if needed) Already have this one
Nairobi Humecta-Sil Conditioner (moisture replenishing conditioner) Already have this one
Nairobi Prot-Sil Reconstructor and Strengthening Treatment
Nairobi Stimu-Sil Conditioning Treatment (perfect after a henna treatment)
Nairobi Soft Finish Leave-in (protects against split ends)
Nairobi Wrapp-It Shine Foaming Lotion (for wrapping/detangling) Already have this one as well
Nairobi Creme Hair and Scalp Hairdressing for body, shine and moisture
Nairobi Moisture-Sil Moisturizing Hair Lotion also for daily moisturizing
The Sheer Shine Polisher and Gleam Shine Conditioning Sheen Spray are stylers that I may get later.
I also noticed that most of the Nairobi products have pH balances of 4.5 to 5.5. Some a little higher. Not bad at all. This is definitely a big plus for our 4c type hair. I am looking forward to using the entire line.
If I really like it a lot, I will give away most of my Dominican hair products and just use this line along with Keracare, Dudley's, Olaplex, Matrix/Biolage, and Kerastase. I can get all of these on the ground thankfully.
I will probably keep using SSI's leave-ins however since I really like how they make my hair feel.
I often thought of using Nairobi when I was relaxed, but never made the switch.
We gotta stay focused on getting only what's needed, reduce existing items and go from there.
Nairobi is great for relaxed hair but has amazing results on natural hair as well. The detox shampoo and the Humecta-Sil I used today are proof of that.
Many of the natural head ladies here use Nairobi hair products and their hair is very healthy. So I need to give this black hair care product a try.
Hello,Everyone..Hope all is going well...I’m doing physical therapy and have been in agonizing pain,so been on a low profile..
Happy Hair Growing!
Hey @Lita, I missed you girlie - all that positive energy. Good to have you you back hon and pray you are recovering well.
@Aggie Thank you..That means a lot to me I missed you too.
Happy Hair Growing!
Gurl...I was wondering??
So happy you are back!
Hope you continue to feel better.
@IDareT'sHair Thank you I will.
I missed you too..Glad to be back.
Happy Hair Growing!
I'm on a no buy until black Friday.
Okay... I'm going to attempt it..... Unless I run out of henna, clay and ayurvedic herbs. Those are a must buy because I rotate weekly.
Leave ins, conditioners, deep conditioners and oils.....NO! Just say NO!!!
I will be joining you right after I purchase all my Nairobi products. I need to get on this train with you while it's moving .
I have the next four months to run through products. I shouldn’t be buying anything but my herbs and clay @Aggie
Good Job coming to that realization.
We can do it and then PJbrate BF.
I forgot how good APB cream leave ins make my hair feel...
I gotta get though this stash. I threw out a couple of spoiled conditioners. They looked iffy and I wasn't chancing it.
I'm waiting on stunna.
Not much going on, still on the "Use Up" Grind hard. Will be parked right here until BF (making very minimal purchases).
Been really tempted, but thankfully, that PJ feelin' passed.
What's Up Sis?
Hi there @IDareT'sHair,
I was just going over my Nairobi Price list and so far, I ticked off 12 items that I want to add to the products I already purchased.
I think there are a couple more I need to tick off but right now, I am too tired to go through the list again tonight. I'll save that for another day.
Girl you can do this. Keep holding off buying unless absolutely necessary.
I did get one bottle of Olaplex #5 Conditioner last night from Cosmoprof since the distributor here is out of stock. I did put in a pre-order for a few bottles here though. I just don't know when they'll be here.
This conditioner does not get a lot of rave reviews but that thing does amazing things for my hair. I can actually detangle my hair with it but many say it leaves their hair hard or simply does nothing for them. Go figure......
Thanks for the Well-Wishes!....
Haven't tried Olaplex. Despite the overwhelmingly positive reviews, I had no interest in it (thankfully).
And when I say 'thankfully' trust me, I really mean it. #thankfully.
I like Olaplex because I color my hair. I know it's with henna, but the Olaplex makes my hair's cuticles lay down really well plus reduces breakage due to dryness from henna or any color for that matter.
