October Hits & Misses

Like Tree17Likes

Cheap hit: looking to try a new shampoo and not finding what exactly I was looking for but coming across a 1.68 sample of organix argan oil shampoo to get me by. Also hit prepooing with suave everlasting sunshine condish. Love it and smells oh so very goooooood
Hit:
Terressential Mud Wash-I tried the Left Coast Lemon and this stuff was totally awesome!!! It was better than any shampoo I have ever used. I don't think my hair has been this easy to detangle. I will definitely be repurchasing this. I will try the Lavender next. I hope they have Black Friday sales so I can stock-up.

Washing my hair in twists-It made washing so much easier. I have been natural for a while and not sure why I am just now trying this.

Miss:
Applying the mud wash-I looked at several You Tube videos to find the best way. I ended up putting the wash in a bottle then adding water. I applied it while in the shower with the water off. It was easy to distribute but it splattered all in my shower. I also felt like I used too much.
I think next time I will try the AVC rinse method before hand then add the mud directly to my hair w/o diluting it in water.

It is official this line has the worst conditioners I have ever tried for my hair next to CD chocolat line.

Hydratherma Naturals Moisturizing conditioner. I tried with a steamer, with oil on top, over night and it STILL made my hair dry as straw.

Hydratherma Naturals Protein deep conditioner. First of all it does not detanlge nor does it soften and OMG, This messed up my hair! Made my hair seize up in knots!! I had to use an entire container of moisturizing conditioner to stop it from seizing AND on top of that it caused my hair to fall out. Yes I said fall out. There was hair everywhere in my tub. It's like it made my hair break off. I contacted the company...not that will do anything but it goes in the trash and 15.99 down the drain. I had originally tried to sell this. So glad I didn't pass this ish onto another curly.

Hit - Garnier Frutis Pure Clean Smoothing Cream.

One of the few curl creams that I've tried that didn't make my hair greasy. I tried it a few times before calling it a hit so I could be sure.

I don't experiment much when it comes to shampoo because I'm prone to dandruff so I wasnt going to get that anyway.

I like it a lot. I was surprised. I used it to cowash, then shingle in the cream with the gel on top for hold.


Hair was niceeeeee. After a week it morphed into the picture below
Awesome hit: Whipping more shea butter, sweet almond oil and grapeseed oil in with the slightly melted container of Reve Essentials hair butter that I had and making the perfect hair butter for MY hair
My hair: thick, medium/coarse, high porosity in the crown naturally, normal porosity everywhere else.

Currently using...
Poo: Any sulfate free or low sulfate poo
Rinse out: Tresemme Naturals
Leave-in: Camille Rose Moisture Milk
DC: Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea DC
Stylers: Xtreme Wetline gel
Oils: EVCO
Moisturizer: Oyin Hair Dew/watered down CR Moisture Milk
Sealant: Oyin pomades or JC Nourish and Shine
Hits:

HEHH- Detangles marvelously
The come back kid Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose- Forgot how wonderfully moisturizing it was and how well it encouraged curl clumping in my hair.
Castor oil- Very Very moisturizing. Leaves my hair feeling butter soft.
QB AOHC & Burdock Root Butter: The best moisturizers I have tried by far.
As I Am leave in conditioner: light and effective

Misses:

Jessicurl Deep Treatment: too thick for my hair
Straight castor oil on wet hair does not seem to work for me.
Oyin hair dew and the Cocoa Tree detangling from Qhemet both leave my hair feeling sticky. Maybe I was too heavy handed?
