I, like so many other naturals was a “Product Junkie” during my transitioning phase. I tried any and everything someone would suggest to me; especially if I thought we had similiar hair textures. I quickly learned after spending hundreds of dollars that:
#1. My hair has more than one texture and I still can’t tell you the type.
#2. What works for your hair may not work for mine and vice versa.
With that being said after trying lots of products and giving lots of products away, I think I have finally found some staple products that work best for my hair. Don’t get me wrong, I will still occassionally try new products, just because!!!
Here are my staple products:
I use the LOC Method when using these products to help my hair maintain moisture.
L= Liquid (water in spray bottle) O= Oil (olive oil or coconut oil) C= Cream (Curl enhancing smoothie cream)
I add this to my water bottle; I love the smell and it gives me a shine
My primary cream for twist-outs and wash-n-go styles.
This is my Primary Moisturizing Cleanser; I use it weekly.
My primary Leave-in conditioner; I use it weekly.
My water bottle is a must have, daily mist for moisture.
I use this as a deep conditioner, great protein moisturizer.
This is very inexpensive and works great; this is my back-up product to the As I Am Cowash.
I use this product to seal my ends at night and as my oil in the LOC method.
I shampoo on a monthly basis; Mixed Chicks is my sulfate-free shampoo of choice.
