So what are folks liking? I have Burdock cream and Honeybush tea gel. Opinions on the Ghee or other newer products?

I am sooooo eagerly anticipating this sale... although I'm sure with the influx of orders it will take a while to get anything.. but I'm still gonna order. I've got new products I just bought from KBB and Oyin to keep me occupied until then...

I Qhem and I still have yet to find anything that moisturizes my hair for days! like her products do!

I have the Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee (CTDG) and if you ever do anything with your dry or slightly damp hair and need to get your coils to detangle, use this product! Just take a little per section, press into the tangled areas and feel how your hair gives and tangles melt. If your ends are also dry, it will soften them, but CTDG is not a moisturizer product, so you would need to follow with a moisturizer product.

I don't use it on wet hair since its like the consistency of cold Crisco (seriously.. lol), but you could probably emulsify it in your hands and make it work. I just liked it on dry or slightly damp hair best. As for value for size, I've been a little heavy handed with this product and I still have over half a jar remaining. I have been so pleased with this product, truly. I have a thick head of fine hair.

The Olive and Honey Hydrating Balm (OHHB) is a smooth honey/jelly consistency. It confused me at first, but I now primarily use this for two purposes. 1) moisturizing soft twist hold for hair and ends. 2) a layer under the AOHC on dry/colder days. I also successfully used the OHHB with aloe vera gel to make the WSP alternative that Teshon shared. I call it my Qhem Pudding. My hair lasted 5 days, no joke, check my pics. So OHHB has become pretty versatile for me.

The Amla and Olive Heavy Cream (AOHC) is the truth in providing moisture for colder/dryer times of year or locales. It's not solid consistency, its literally a heavy cream. I don't think its too heavy for my hair, but I've only used it for twists on wet hair with the OHHB. I kind of know when my hair needs this and when it doesn't. AOHC is too heavy for my wash n go's.

Burdock Root Butter Cream (BRBC) would be perfect all year round for me if my hair wasn't so demanding in winter months. Best for warmer/humid climates. Great on wet or slightly damp hair, even dry, but you may use a little more product. I love, love this product. One time, I put this product in my wet hair over my leave-in, sectioned my hair, wrapped and fell asleep. Woke up to soft, soft hair. I proceeded to do twists on my mostly dry hair using a little BRBC and OHHB, and it was a breeze.

Your hair will always be moisturized with Qhem's products. Don't look for high shine though. If a person does a lot of twists or braids and leaves them in for a few days before wearing the hair out, go with Qhem. If you co-wash every single day though, you'll burn through your wallet. Save Qhem's stuff for when you're going to leave your hair alone for a few days.

Sorry for the long post, but Qhem's products are by far my favorite.

I love to mix the Olive/Amla Heavy Cream with the Olive/Honey Hydrating Balm.

When removing a twist/braid set, I like to rub the Amla Oil Nourishing Pomade on each twist/braid prior to unraveling.

The Burdock Root Butter Cream wasn't thick enough for me so I gave it to a natural co-worker/friend.

Qhemet has given me more shine than any product i've used and I've use MANY!!!

I just bought some Ghee from a fellow NC member today and am excited about trying it.

Ugh. I caved. I picked up the AOHC in a sample size since I've read on the boards it's more for winter than summer; BRBC in full size, HTSG in full size and the OHHB in sample size. I checked out a youtube vid and the consistency had me wondering what I'd actually DO with it. I was thinking a DC but I'm not sure.

Anyway, I'm sure it will be like forever and a day before they get to me, so I'm not even gonna think about them until I get a shipment e-mail....

I like the CTDG to detangle on dry hair. If you don't mind the smell of chocolate, its great.

I'm still debating whether I will be able to take advantage of the sale. My mind keeps telling me to go for it, but my bank account is saying hell to the no. What's a girl to do?
