Do I Qualify As A Product Junkie?

Since I decided to stop putting chemical relaxers in my hair I have played around with different products. Some products I only used while I was transitioning, some I have only used since I cut off the relaxed ends and some I just use for certain parts of my hair regimen. Either way, I would like to present those to you now

Shampoos:

This is a cleansing conditioner tht I used while I was transitioning. It’s sulfate free and did not lather which I knew where good things while I was transitioning. It’s works fantastically. 

This is a picture of the Shea Moisture Transition Kit. After trying out this kit, I switched to the Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter shampoo. I have been using it ever since. It’s sulfate free but also gives me the lather that I am attached to. The smell is strong and As if recently I feel like it’s stripping my hair of moisture instead of adding it. It’s almost empty so next I will be trying the Shea Moisture shampoo from the coconut and hibiscus line. 

Conditioners:


This is a recent addition to my product repertoire. I was curious about the Carol’s Daughter fascination. I bought this cleansing conditioner to see if I could use it to replace my conditioner running low. It didn’t tickle my fancy. The smell was very strong and overpowering so just to use it up I use it as my pre-poo conditioner. 

This is the current conditioner I use for conditioning and detangling I switched to this recently because I had ran out of my other staple and I needed something quick and cheap. This works very well. It has slip and keeps my hair feeling moisturized. This along with my Creame of Nature are my top conditioners. I would probably be more likely to use this one because I get more product for the same price if not cheaper than my Creame of Nature. 

This conditioner right here! Has been my ride or die from when I was getting relaxers! It’s great for me. This is old faithful. It’s rich, creamy and full of slip and my hair soaks it up. I haven’t used it in a while because I ran out and I’m still using the Tresemme. 

Deep Conditioner: 
Right now I use the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque that comes along with this line but I am definitely in the market for another deep conditioner. I bought it because it was one of the few DC i found that gave you a lot of product for a reasonable price. However, I find myself always adding oil to this conditioner to add softness and shine. By itself, I don’t get the desired slip I look for.

Moisturizer:
This is actually a styler but it moisturized my hair whenever I use it and if I am trying a new style you can bet I will be starting with this. I use it on any twist style that I do.

Stylers/Gels
I use this as a back up if I want to travel with something smaller instead of the Curl Enhancing smoothie. It works just as well as the Curl Enhancing. 

I don’t wear my hair in styles that requires it to be stretched or blow out so I haven’t put this to the test for my edges but I have definetly tried this on my finger coils and I will continue to do so.
