December hit's & misses

Like Tree21Likes

I haven't seen a thread for December yet but here it is.

Hit: I found my satin scarf finally after losing it for a while. It's now washed and lives on my pillow again like I feel it should.

Miss: I need to restyle soon and combing my hair is going to be interesting to say the least. I'm not looking forward to this.
3c/4aMCiii normal/low porosity med elasticty

Shampoo- JC Hydrating Invigorating poo, Alaffia Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Shampoo, CV poo bars
Rinse out- Natures gate hemp, GSAS
Leave in- GDLI, Beautiful Curls Curl Activating Leave in
DT- Still working on that
Styler- Ecostyler Crystal, Queen Helene Royal Curl Creme
Sealer- castor, Shea butter,jojoba oil

I don't know how well I'll keep it up, my blog The Lions Mane
Hit:
Using the "cool & seal" method with my dc

Finding SM curl milk at Target for $4.98

Trader Joe's nourish spa & ttt conditioner as LI/RO/cowash

Sealing with baby oil. On day 3 and still feeling moisturized.

Hit & miss:
lll Sisters of Nature nourishing treatment dc. Soft and fluffy hair but no slip, adding oils helped some. It turned into paste on my hair when used with HE HIS, TJ nourish spa & TN for the "cool & seal" method.
Under Construction
Hit: Shea moisture African black soap purification mask. This just glides through my hair. It's great as a DT and LI. Softens my hair and gives me the most defined WnG I've ever had. Love it and I'm mad it took me so long to get it!

Miss: sealing. Idk, I just can't seem to do this right. I only recently started actually trying, but I've noticed no difference in my moisture retention...
Mostly fine hair, coarse around my edges and nape.
Definitely high porosity and insanely dense.
Not so sure on the elasticity, but I don't think I have a very good moisture/protein balance and my hair is ubber dry, so I'm going to go with low... of course I could be very wrong.

Regimen:
Cowash/RO: HEHH, AIA Coconut Cowash
PT: Ion Effective Care Treatment
DT: Any condish with EVOO+Honey
LI: SM CES or PM The conditioner
Styler: EcoStyler Olive Oil, KCCC, or Let's Jam
Hit: hairveda red tea moisturizer. I use it as a leave in and moisturizer and it leaves my hair so soft. I also can use pretty much any product in conjunction with it.

Maybe miss: silk dreams wheat germ butter conditioner as a leave in. Made my hair a little dry. I may just use this as a conditioner and see.

hit: shea moisture african black soap. real african black soap (from africa) burns my face. thankfully, their version doesn't. it pulls my face a little tight (temporarily) but doesn't burn.

constant hit: straight aloe vera spritz
LOIS (OS); cottony, TYPE 4 hair, fine/med strands; no cones bcz my hair hates them; last relaxer '98; now low porosity, ignores most natural hair rules; BC #8

faves: suave, v05 shampoo, conditioner (my own), raw shea butter, castor oil, peanut oil, aloe juice

Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far
Wow. Super brain fart. I actually had no clue it had clay in it. Well I haven't have any ill affects from using it as a LI. But I probably won't be doing it anymore. =\ shame too it works really well wit my gel for shiny super defined curls... Oh well. I just got the oyin hair dew, so I hope it can give similar results. =)

Hit: I am really loving Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In. Been using it as a leave-in, detangler, and a styler. The only product I've been using for 2 weeks now.


Miss: Running low on products but on a no-buy until Feb. Can I make it?
Hit: Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee! When a little time passes and it solidifies it is bomb!


Misses: Curl junkie Curl Rehab as a leave in, different strikes for different folks I guess. I really thought I would love it for that purpose based on reviews. Well now it will have to prove itself as a deep conditioner...and its competition is fierce, its cousin Deep Fix ain't no joke.

You never stop learning...
Super MISS: Shea Moisture Organic Yucca & Baobab Anti-Breakage Masque My hair was so dry and tangled after using this, it took several deep conditioning treatments with my heat therapy wrap and steaming just to get my hair back to normal. I have some other stuff from this line that I've never used... seriously doubt I will even try.

Disappointed since I really like the Coconut & Hibiscus line.
Hit:
Miss Jessie's super sudsy shampoo.

Super miss:
Miss Jessie's Creme de la creme conditioner. I tried to use it as a leave-in. No slip and it made my hair frizzy and hard. I had to re-wash my hair. Got it in the BOGO. Bad choice.
Major hit -The Natural Me Whipped Shea Butter. I can't believe I let this stuff sit in my stash for months unopened. Love love love it.
Hit: Devacurl No-poo: it smells awesome and leaves my scalp feeling very clean

Miss: Devacare One Condition: the scent is awful and leaves my hair smelling like an artificial orange plantage *yuck* , it isn't slippy at all and i feel like the more i use the dryer and frizzier my hair gets.
