Your weekly PJ Buys

Like Tree7Likes

I've bought a few cloth headbands lately, and none of them fit. So I went to JoAnn Fabric and bought some plain black elastic. I'm going to try making my own.

I looked for scarves at Target but didn't find any I liked...however, there was one bottle Shea Moisture Organic Coconut Hibiscus Curl and Style Milk for $2.48 and I snatched that sucker up immediately.

  • My hair type: 2b; fine/normal thickness; low density; high porosity (I think!)
This past week I bought a bunch of samples from kathymack, and I'm really glad I did, because I just decided to go to the World Natural Hair Show this coming weekend , so after trying some of the samples, I know what I'll be buying. Other than that, just been saving rather than spending since I know this weekend will be a bit of a drain on my bank account.

^^ day 1 of going CG; avatar = 6 months later
I got Organix Moroccan argan oil shampoo, Samy get curls activating curl cream, la Bella lots of curls gel and some new flour sack towels. I've been strictly no shampoo and no cones for a couple months and I just started to feel the need to shampoo every once in a while and try some other products. I've been using CJ products and they're almost too moisturizing for me and the gel isn't enough hold.

When I got home I went through my stash under the sink and got rid of a ton of products (serums and other cone filled things I've been holding on to) so that feels good!
Not technically a purchase, but...

I found out today that there IS a place in town that carries Jessicurl, so I stopped in after lunch, but just before my hair cut (all locations were in a 4-5 block range, so pretty close). She gave me samples of the Gentle Lather Shampoo, Hair Cleansing Cream, Aloeba Conditioner, and the Deep Conditioning Treatment. That was pretty awesome. She, the owner also gave me the card of the stylist she sees, and says that she will let her bring in her own stuff. But I think the stylist is about $60...so I dunno. Might have to at least look into it.

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
I have ordered jessicurl rockin ringlets, confident coils, aloeba conditioner and gentle lather shampoo trial size's.
And from Abeni, curley girls dream cleanser, avocado and kokum conditioning bar and curl enhancer trial sizes.
Also Ag recoil and mop c curl enhancer woohoo. Should all come next week hopefully


That's from the hair show; I'm torn between being happy I didn't spend as much as I expected and going back to buy more

Thanks to a tip on the General board, I've been making the rounds to different TJ Maxx's in my area to look for MOP-C hydrating poo. I've found 6 bottles so far, and for 5.99 each, its a steal! This is one of the two low-poos (the other is DevaCurl low-poo, believe it or not) I can use without turning into a dry, tangly mess.
- 2C - Coarse Canopy & med/fine underlayers
- MOP C Hydrating 'poo
- LOreal Natures Therapy Moisturizing condish, ION Effective Care, Garnier S&S (old formula)
- treatments: CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Repair Me!
- plopping, diffusing, and clipping the roots
This past week -

KCKT - liking so far
Curls (from Target) Refresher spray - this smells delicious but it's high in glycerin, and I'm undecided on that
more Rockin Ringlets
CHS Treatment Shampoo
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

LI: KCKT
PT: gelatin PT, ION EC

Repurchased DB Cleansing Conditioner Cream and got some DB Shea Butter Curl Moisturizing Cream

I love, love the cleansing conditioner, and so far, I'm really like the moisturizing cream too.

The person who sold it to me gave me about 15 free samples of stuff! I have some Hair Rules, Donna Marie, Curly Q...
But I'm really interested in the Koils by Nature Herbal Peppermint Gel and Shealoe Leave-in samples.

Haven't bought anything this week, but last week I bought a pack of flower sack towels and a microfiber turbie twist. The week before that I bought a few conditioners from trader joe's, coconut oil, jojoba oil, vitamin e oil, desert essence coconut conditioner, AO B5 gel, and I think that's it. :]

I am going to be such a PJ it's not even funny :/ It's my first week with a CG-type routine so I'm trying to restrain myself until I figure out what works/what my hair needs. This week I started up my product arsenal with:

Some cheap conditioners for CO washing (VO5 Strawberries and Cream, which made my scalp and face break out, trying 365 Lavender now)
KCKT
LA Looks Sport Gel
HETT mousse
Aloe vera gel
Jojoba oil

And I'm waiting for a few things in the mail:
KCCC
BRHG
CJ CCCC Lite

I'm going to need someone to slap some sense into me if I try to buy anything else this week!
A very frizzy 1c/2a/F/iii, normal porosity and elasticity as far as I can tell

Current product rotation:
Low-poo: ES bubble bath
CO wash: Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut
RO: SS Caitlin's Conditioner, Desert Essence Coconut, AO GBP, CJ Curl Rehab
DT: CJ Curl Rehab
LI: KCKT topped with sweet almond oil
