Hits-

Yes to Carrots Conditioner + B.A.S.K. Y.A.M. Nector- I was cleaning out my bathroom closet and found the Yes to Carrots conditioner. I only used it once and it didn't really do anything for me so in the back of the closet it went. I have mixed Y.A.M. Nector with their Cacao Bark as well as CJ Rehab and got wonderful results with both. I figured why not try it with this conditioner. I shampooed my hair and section and applied the conditioner then raked through the Y.A.M. Nector to each section. I then put on a plastic cap and kept it on for 1 hour. After I rinsed my hair was so soft and easy to detangle. The smell of the two products together was good to.

B.A.S.K. Tapioca Cream-this stuff was amazing for my twist outs. I used the Eco Styler Clear Gel on top and there was no crunch. Just a firm hold that I needed in this very hot weather. The smell was nice too. My hair was a little greasy but that's because I was heavy handed with the cream. I know better next time.

Oyin Go Tea-Used this as a refresher for my wash & go and it was pretty good. The scent is light and I love the silver bottle they put it in.

Tangle Wrangler Brush-I find it funny that I found this with the horse supplies at my local Tractor Supply Co store. This makes detangling a breeze. I love that the bristles move apart and are not stiff.

In the Middle-

Oyin Grand Poo Bar-this was just okay. I think I would like it better if it were a liquid version instead of a bar. I don't think I will repurchase again.

B.A.S.K. Java Bean & Honey Balm-I used this along with the Tapioca cream on my roots and ends for my twist out. It worked well but I cannot stand the smell. I love coffee and like the smell of it brewing in my kitchen but the scent of this balm is just too concentrated. It was actually giving me a headache. I will probably use it up and not repurchase unless she offers a different scent. I will stick to my beloved Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade. I get the same results and I love smell.

Hit - L.A.C.E. Enterprises's Ayurvedic Hair and Scalp Mist.

Shout out for a small company. I picked this up at a hair show in New Orleans and I really love the stuff. My hair prefers more natural products. This is moisturizing without being very greasy or weighing my hair down. It can be used a prepoo or to mist hair before styling. I like to mist my hair before I do my braids before bed and the next morning my hair feels wonderful.

Is the JBCO product the conditioner or some other JBCO product?

Hit: BASK Palm Tapioca Deluxe Hair Cream... love this stuff. I twisted and then sealed with the Java Bean & Honey Hair Balm... = soft hydrated thick twists! (((insert body roll)))

Hit: after washing/co washing I put this JBCO mix on (using JBCO as a base, adding grapeseed oil, almond oil, rosemary, peppermint, and tea tree EO) starting with a scalp massage, lightly on hair and a little extra on the ends.. my hair is moist and softer longer then when I do this as a last step...

So-so: CD Monoi line.. I used everything including the mask. It was all just ok to me. Nothing phenomenal, especially for the price. I baggy-ed the mask overnight too... doubt I'll purchase again

Bunning wet hair. I just started attempting it after watching denimpixie on YT.

I'm cashing out
