Try using the search engine on here to research some of the products mentioned on here and also try using youtube to research things you may not know about.

Guys! Knock it off.

My routine varies according to the season.

Summer:

Deep con each week and protein treat (egg and conditioner) as needed.
Cowashed twice a week with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration. I do this in sections because it's easier for me.
Use Giovanni Direct Leave in. Wait until about 50% dry
Two strand twist using any gel on hand. I like HETT but it's a hard hold gel.
Seal with grapeseed oil.



Medium Twists- Wear for four to five days before doing a a twist out.

Large Twists- Next day twist out.

Winter:

Deep treat each week and henna as needed. Once a month or as needed.
Cowash once a week
Wear twists for one to two weeks. Usually twist with butters during winter.

Spring/fall haven't been solidified quite yet.

Good luck with everything. PM if you have any questions although I dont know how much help I can be.

Also, take a look at the random 4a questions thread as there is a tonne of useful info in there.

Being rude back is no way to get anyone to help either... She has a very valid point, because without any information about your hair properties, no one can make decent recommendations. If you don't know your hair properties, there are forums here to help you figure it out, and if you take a minute to look, there are threads with recommendations about products (a whole forum about Readers' Product Reviews, a review section on Curl Mart)

As for not being able to find products...there are SEVERAL threads on products on the very first page of this board, where you started your thread - a great one - Curl Junkie and Donna Marie Faves, and both are very popular brands among naturals.

It could have been said "nicer" but her point was very valid. Many times, people come to this board and it is obvious they haven't tried to take the initiative to find ANYTHING, they just start a new thread and expect people hand them their regimen, products, and styling routines on a silver platter, which in the long run is not going to be beneficial to your hair journey, since everyone's hair is different and natural hair takes quite a bit of experimentation....give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach a man to fish...

Why/how would one possibly recommend ANYTHING, with no relevant info to go on?

"Knock it off" is right on the money.

OP, there's way too much info here...hundreds of threads. People took time to write product reviews, answer the same questions over and over, share regimens, post pictures, provide helpful tips, etc., and you need to take the time to read it. People are more than happy to help you build on the info that's already here.

To bust through the gates, expecting folks to make a personalized list for you is.....rude, perhaps? I know that's an interesting take on it, because people who don't take the time to look around and take in the info provided NEVER think that's inconsiderate. Never.

And the bolded is the most frustrating aspect of it all, and why many ladies on this site get fed up and respond "rudely."

Hi. I'll tell you the products I use.

Shampoo: Suave Naturals. It has sulfates but I only shampoo twice a month. Other times I co-wash.

Co-wash conditioner: Garnier Triple Nutrition

Detangling/Leave-In conditioner: Tresemme Naturals. After I detangle I only rinse about half of it out.

I use aloe vera gel before I apply any styler. I use Fruit of The Earth. For a gel I use EcoStyler for color-treated hair. It's blue. Has a hold of 5.

The only oils I like are castor oil or EVOO. I prefer to use oils for pre-poos.

Hopefully that was helpful!

Oh, and you can also post any questions you have in the general hair section. Not that you have to. Just an idea.

Thanks for joining up.
