June Hits & Misses

Miss

Dyeing my hair, it is now a hot mess of dryness, and ive been too busy to really deep condition like I need
Hit: Enso Naturals Twisting pudding. This stuff is the business. Now I'm wishing I'd gotten a larger size during the memorial day sale. Next sale, i'm stocking up on the 32oz of this (yelp its THAT good).

Lashawn, you can still get product build up without using cones. That's happened to me before and that's when I know it's time to wash. The Shea Moisture Smoothie and KCCC used to cause white clumps when I conditioned the next day something awful!!!

No, seriously...I didn't wash that morning, but I had washed the day before. Because I'm trying so much different stuff, I have been trying to keep 'clean' about 2x a week. Anyway, at that time I only had 1 'day' of product on my head...and it was PWG and a little Eco on top. That was just weird...hadn't happened like that before and didn't happen this morning when I cowashed with Darcy's. Oh well, I ain't giving up yet. It'll come back around in the rotation soon!
hi. i'm a product junkie! so many products, so little time...

last full relaxer: 6/10/10 big chop: 11/25/10
2011 Goal: SL (stretched) = Curly


taken 3/30/11
Hits:
  • Curl Keeper!! Delicious as a finisher, really takes down frizz. This is going to be my staple summer finisher since it has glycerin.
  • Hand Dry Towel: Flipped my head over and scrunched - really got out the excess product without mussing my hair up - wet whiteness averted.

Pending Hit:
  • Mixed Chicks Kids Leave-In Conditioner: More of a cream gel than the adult version, doesn't smell like crap. For extra frizz control I think I would like it better with a finisher w/o glycerin though, since glycerin is the second ingred. My hair was almost too soft.

Preliminary hit
Komaza Care Califia Moisturizing Cream. This stuff is really nice. My hair soaked it right up and my hair feels so friggin soft. This cream is very hydrating. When I rubbed it into my hair it was like I can feel my hair being infused with moisture. It was really nice. I'm gonna try this and the califia pudding fresh after a wash and DC, in the same way I use my Qhemet AOHC and HBTSG for twists. I'm very impressed. I'm kinda mad that I only got samples of this stuff. I hope I have enough to do my whole head.

Possible Miss
This Komaza Care Vitamin Reign. It doesn't eff up my hair or anything but it just feels like I'm spraying water on my hair. Nothing special at all. Ya, I've only used it once (I got all these products in the mail today.lol) but this stuff will probably not be a repurchase. I'm gonna use this stuff up though.

Finally maintaining a clean, moisturized scalp!

Hit:
Convincing (ok fine. I was begging) my mom to buy me some Kinky Curly Knot Today
Imma sucker for the ingredient "marshmallow"
Getting my (relaxed) mom hooked on healthier hair products. Like Roots of Nature and Shea Moisture.
She loves the Roots of Nature line. She brought the Curl Enhancing Smoothie for my little sister (who has thick, big 3c curls) and the Deep Treatment Masque for herself. I hope she likes 'em.

Miss:
being left in Target with twins. Im 20 (who apparently looks like a 16 yr old) and every lady (never a guy) stopped, smiled at the twins and stared HARD until I stared back and said "Im 20. These are not my kids. Im the sister, my mom is over there." And the look of relief just gushed over the faces as they continued to coo and ahh over the infants.

Was a hit now a miss:

Original Moxie Everyday Leave-In is now a miss. I love the leave-in but the cones in it started causing problems.

Miss:

Damage to my hairline from wearing too many puffs and using a brush to slick my hair back. Those two areas were already thinned from years of hairdressers overprocessing my hair with relaxers. Now those two areas have breakage. So now I gotta focus on regrowing those areas back. No more puffs for me for a long time.

She's always asking me what to use with her hair and scalp now.lol A while ago she said she was gonna go natural but I'm still waiting/hoping for it. She works in corporate so...things like that ain't as easy to make decisions about

Hit:
Giovanni Smooth As Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo

Miss:
Afroveda Oasis Fruit Cocktail Hair Souffle
I received a sample of this. Very nice moisturizer, but I can't stand the smell. It's VERY strong and the scent doesn't let up. It is very rare that a scent will kill a product for me. This one has done just that. Glad I didn't purchase a jar.

Ah...to be a well pampered pootiecat. I can sleep on my owner's lap. Roll over on my back when I want my stomach rubbed. Purr with delight. Suddenly jump off and walk away for no reason. Not respond when I am called. Throw my leg up and lick with intense abandon. Sleep 85% of the time. Hang my head off the couch and view the world upside down.

I'm going to use up my sample, but I'm going to mix it with one of my unscented hair butters, to tone it down. I won't purchase it.
