Honey
EVOO
Banana
Shea butter for my ends.
Any oil but evoo or coconut for sealing
I must have
Coconut oil: for dry detangling and prepooing, need.
Bobeam Shampoo Bars: shampoo has been one of the most difficult things to get right along my journey, & has the most power to jack my hair the hell up. Her poo bars are thee perfect cleanser for my hair.
Heat Cap: I went a couple months this year without it, it makes a big difference.
Mason Pearson Combs/Denman: use these then try and go back to regular combs, no maam.
Protein Conditioners (on a regular basis): Mill creek keratin, Brown butter beauty, Aubrey GPB.. my hair will die without.
Sealants: Sealing is as crucial as protein. Any good butter blend will serve the purpose. As far as oils, my hair DRINKS my olive-peanut-avocado blend. I need nothing else

all of the above are things I do/use weekly, and when I have gone without my hair has shriveled up and died LoL
MUST HAVE:

SheaMoistre hibiscus hair milk as a leave in after wash and cowash

*acv rinse as final rinse

*shea butter

Oils:
*Castor
EVCO
EVOO (great 4 moisture &shine)

I can be natural & happy with just these methods alone
