After my "big chop" I visited my fav Walgreens to restock on my natural hair products and to also buy new products to try. I say it is my fav because they have all of the items I have either read about or have heard people talk about.
I went in looking for a leave in conditioner, a conditioner for co-washing and a gel.
I ended up purchasing...
- TRESemme Moisture Rich conditioner (restock)
-Aragon Oil strength and shine leave-in conditioner (new product)
-Kinky, Wavy herbal comb out (restock for my baby)
-Twisted Sista 30 second curl spray (new product)
-Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner (restock)
-Shea Moisture curling soufflé (new product)
I have used the TRESemme Moisture Rich conditioner before as well as the shampoo although my all-time fav is PANTENE PRO-V RELAXED & NATURAL FOR WOMEN OF COLOR dry to moisture shampoo and conditioner. However for co-washing it can get expensive which is why I opt to use the TRESemme conditioner. It has a good sent, is light weight and leave my hair feeling soft and full.
The next item that I have used in the past and needed to restock on was the Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner. I bought this item originally after my hair dye dilemma to nurse my curls back to good health. Although it was a failed attempt I fell in love with this product. It smells amazing and is very light weight so it doesn’t weigh your hair down. My hair soaks it up right away giving it the moisture it needs. This leave-in is packed with ingredients to help moisturize condition, detangle, repair and restore damaged hair.
Another restock item was my daughter's leave-in conditioner. I had heard about this product through Curly Nikki's site and bought it as soon as I found it. My daughter has more of a 3C texture but her hair craves moisture and this product works great. It has a wonderful sent, isn’t greasy or heavy and helps to detangle, prevent breakage and condition.
The Shea Moisture curling soufflé is a new product I picked up and I am really loving it, although it does leave a bit of a sticky/ greasy residue it is not too bad that I would stop using it. I love it because it really moisturizes my hair. The best part is that it gives my short new do that wet/gelled hair look but without the damage. It provides lots of shine and body too.
Another new product for me is the Twisted Sista 30 second curling spray. So far I have only used this on second and even third day hair to spruce up my curls and somewhat refresh and revitalize them.
The last new product I purchased for myself was the Crème of Nature Aragon Oil Strength and Shine Leave In conditioner. I use this daily as a nourishing and protective spray. I apply it before any product I use almost like food for my hair. It is a liquid protein complex to protect the hair and add shine.
