August Hits and Misses

Finickey Curl Confection Styling Cream
I used this to put twists in for a week on dry, stretched hair. I wasn't planning on a twist out, just wanted to keep my hair up. When I took my twists down my hair was very moisturized. I ended up wearing the twist out for three days before I decided to wash.

I won't bother buying the Shea Moisture again and I can get it pretty easily on the ground, but I'm willing to pay shipping for the B.A.S.K. again.

ETA: I've only tried the B.A.S.K. apricot scrub and the Shea Moisture Lavender scrub.

think I finally tried the Ambrosia Satin Curls Detangling Leave-In and this stuff was such a hit. I twisted with this, styled my hair with this and then used Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade to take the twists down. You can just use this alone and it will have your hair nice, full, plump, moisturized and LAYED.

Oyin Hair Dew- great for twist outs. This is like a hair milk that can be used as a leave-in, a styler, or a detangler. But the scent is sooo strong! This does fade after a while though. If this came in unscented it would be great!

Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade- Great as a sealant and for edges and if you feel like "greasin' your scalp"

Renpure My pretty hair is parched Conditioner!- this is really nice, but it is sooo watery. Other than that was a happy camper.

Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Conditioner-Oooh la la. This stuff is so delicious. It just glides through your hair and can be used as a prepoo, dc, leave-in, cowash, in a mix, under the bridge, on a tall building, in the sky, in the night, it will not put up a fight! Love it so much, that I have 3 bottles(coming from a reformed PJ).



Neutral
Renpure My pretty hair is parched Shampoo- This is sulfate free, had soft hair afterwards (used with the conditioner) but later hair was a bit dry.

Ambrosia Honeybush Replenishing hair milk- this is ok as a prepoo but its nothing like a hair milk. It's more like a butter and good luck squeezing this butter like product out of a bottle!

Oyin Juices & Berries- It just feels like I'm spritzing my hair with water? I don't know what to look for...

Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In- This could be a hit or miss depending on the mood. I have the one with the old label. I just like the scent of this to use as a hair perfume. I even use this as a fabric refresher. But you don't want to get this on anything white as it could stain.

Miss:
Botanical Spirits Cacao Vanilla Recovery Latté
Absolutely NO slip and not emollient. The sample I received was thin. The regular size is a thick elmers glue like substance that doesn't absorb into the hair and provides no moisture. I tried added glycerin to it. NO help. I added aloe vera to it. NO help. I finally gave up and threw it away. THIS needs a formula do over because it has great ingredients in it but they just don't work well together.

Hit: Eden Bodyworks Natural Deep Conditioner. This stuff was weird initially going on, but once I worked it in, I could tell it would be good. After 30 mins and my heat cap, my hair felt wonderful and was super defined. I love this stuff.

Hit: Tresemme Naturals as a leave-in with Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting Butter as the sealer. Sigh, I used up my last little bit of CR last night. OMG...I must order more. I've only ever used it for wash and gos, but now that I can twist, it will be on the list. Hopefully, someone has a sale soon.

Hit: suave professionals captivating curls whipped cream mousse!! Love this stuff!! It's a great consistency that doesn't weigh my hair down but still adds shine, bounce, and completely eliminates frizz. Oh and it doesn't dry crunchy either.

Miss: herbal essences totally twisted mousse. I didn't use that much but my hair dried very crunchy and it didn't really do much. Frizz was still there.
