Hit: Amla treatment ( my curls are super define)

Ecco Pink custard (I just mix coconut oil, grape seed, and sweet almond oil with the Ecco pink) My results are wonderful and there is no crunch.
Miss: Co-washing. My hair doesn't like it. I can't even co wash with my favorite rinse out conditioner.

Miss: Sulfate Free Shampoo. Always leaves my hair feeling like straw, tumble weed, and anything else hard, dry, and crunchy. I love my sulfates.

Mega Hit: b.a.s.k. Condensed Custard.

I purchased it in both the Lemon Beignet and pineapple ginger scents. They both smell awesome but I find the pineapple ginger fades away while the Lemon Beignet lingers a little longer. I applied them to wet moisturized hair as a sealer after washing and I woke up with soft hair. I also used them as twisting agents I went three days without remoisturizing. The product is advertised as a thick body or hair cream so I used some on my dry heels and they were very smooth. I will repurchase in bulk when b.a.s.k. has another sale.

MISS: Koils by Nature Shealoe Leave In. I don't understand all the hype. It did not moisturize at all and left flakes in my hair. I don't like the consistency or the smell either.

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." --- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Mega/Supah Dupah Hits:
  • DB Pumpkin Seed Curl Moisturizing Conditioner
I slept on this SO long...wouldn't buy it. I'm mad I didn't get the 16oz. AMAZING...as a leave-in, and I'm sure I would love it as a rinse out, too.


Fantastic slip, detangling wasn't a thought...my hair was smitten, from the moment this THICK, rich cream hit the surface.


  • QB Aethiopika Hydrate and Twist Butter
Slept on this one, too. I had no idea this stuff was SO thick and...hard. BUT, I caught on to how to apply it. It's not something I apply to each small section of hair. I divide my hair in about 6 big sections, emulsify a small amount of the butter in my hands and apply to each section, and then start twisting. I applied the DB PSCMC underneath.




This combo produced a head full of fluffy, soft-as- cotton two strand twists.

Preliminary Hit:
-Yes to Carrots Leave In
I stretched wash day far too long, finally washed and conditioned this morning and put my hair in a low bun.. applied this and cocasta oil with a dab of curl rehab on the ends since I skipped a DC & didnt want them to be dry in case it sucked.

Normally when I wet bun ill turn it into a braidout at night, when I took it down to set it.. it was so soft, smooth and uber moisturized. Omg.
my hair isnt even dry yet so well see how it turns out tomorrow and ill have to test it more of course sans curl rehab but the first impression is excellent!
Hit: pineappling at night to avoid tangles.
Aloe Vera gel & coconut oil- layered Co over Avg. This combo leaves my hair uber soft.
Finger detangling-I tried it again and it seems to be working out better these days when I part from the crown down and pull through with all fingers gently loosening the tangles.

Everything in moderation?

daily conditioner-HE Honey I'm Strong (use as li)

All I had was misses:

Castor oil was a miss and so was shea for me
Hit and Miss : Senegalese twists. They were beautiful. I will post pixs when CT stops acting up. But I do twists to stretch and do not wear as a style. These are horrible in my hair for twistouts. Anyone who does long protective styles could benefit.
Prelim Hit: SM Curl and Style Milk. The smoothie was a miss for me but THIS? Awesome. Used it to braid/moisturize an old WAG and it quenched my super dry hair and made a nice voluminous braidout. Excited to try it as a leave in.
Super Thick corkscrews and waves. LOVE Elucence MBC, Giovanni 50/50 condish, Qhemet Products, V05 Calming Chamomile Tea Therapy condish, Jessicurl WDT. These are my official HG's that I love oh so much

Miss: Biofusion Hydrating Conditioning Balm

It was 50 percent off. My first Commercial dc I have used in years and it is a no go. I tried it after clarifying and my hair felt coated and not as moisturized as my banana/honey/oil dc. I did try it after a cowash and my hair felt slightly coated but my hair did okay.
Holy grail level hit: sealing my leave in with coconut oil, then applying gel on top. Um, what?! It's raining everyday this week here. Can't even tell!!!!!

Siri don't proofread my stuff...

- slippery leave ins (CJ smoothing lotion and KCNT) as moisturizer/styler with my castor jelly balm mix on top. Super sheeny, moist hair got days without Frizz or greasiness
