June Hits & Misses

Miss
As I am twisting cream. It felt nice going on but my hair felt like sandpaper when it dried.

Neutral
As I am smoothing gel

Well, it's safe to say that this product line is not for me. Glad I didn't pay for it!
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.

Hit: Herb N Life Coconut Hemp - This is a staple of mine, but I hadn't bought it in awhile because it's technically a pomade, although it does contain glycerin (which I didn't remember). Used it today on top of the Mixed Chicks Kids LI and it was so light and sheen-like, not heavy at all, my hair was like oh heyyyyy! My hair is drying so soft right now and it even depleted some canopy frizz. Welcome back to the rotation, lovah!

I took a risk that like Ecostyler where glycerin is farther up the list, the actual amt or concentration isn't that much in the gel vs. the carbomers. I'm in NYC where it's very humid in the summertime and today it's 93 degrees and my hair has been ok. Granted, I haven't spent too much time outside the hospital since I came to work early this AM, but the dew was 61. Same deal pretty much.

Non hair related:

My piercing healing nice and smooth even after the horror stories I've read online about it being done with a gun
Smacked with a head full of Dreamy tight Coils that refuse to have it any other way...
Finally maintaining a clean, moisturized scalp!
I'm really getting into my Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil now

possible hit:

Enso Buttercream as a sealant and refresher. Tried this over TW Mist Bodifier and Sta Sof Fro. Thumbs up. Tried it alone on dry hair and its okay. I think my hair needs to be atleast a little bit damp for this to really work. All three tests were done to moisturize twists. Umm..I might try this as an actually twisting cream/butter just for fun but so far I like it.

BIG SLAP YOUR MAMA HIT:
Njoi Creations Coconut Cream hair dressing- Oh yes oh yes I love this stuff it works well on my wet or dry hair, a lil goes a long way, and my twist with this look so freakin juicy.... I am in love

Non Hair: My new tatt OMG this damn artist is so bomb! I thought I couldn't find anyone as good as my artist in Japan but wow. If I'm in Cali for long enough he will be filling up my back.

Hit:
Wash and go in sections - Finally stopped being lazy and decided to try this since my hair is getting longer and is so darn thick. Better distribution of product and less matting of my roots. I will have to get used to the extra time commitment tho..10-15 min w/ my previous "slap on product" method vs. over an hour trying to be more thorough.

Miss:
Wash and go w/ Fantasia IC clear - hair didn't shrink up as much as it normally does with just leave in and oil so that was nice, but it didn't really offer much hold and my hair looked a little ashy (dunno about that "greatest shine on earth" business). This works much better for me with slicked back styles.

On the fence:
Wash and go w/ Olive Oil Eco Styler - hair looked totally cute but dried crunchier than I would have liked, even tho I mixed the Eco w/ castor oil to try to bring down the crunch. 2nd day hair was much nicer when refreshed with Oyin Hair Dew and a smidge of JC Nourish and Shine, but I think I wanna try out the Pink Eco.
