I got some Mother's Day $$$ in the mail today (I have a stepson) and would love to treat myself to some more Shea Moisture products! I love love looove the Coconut and Hibiscus shampoo - my hair is fab with it! Which of the other products should I pick up, and any tips on using them? I am a 3B with short hair if that helps. My hair performs 1000% better when I use the one Shea Moisture product I have, so I am looking forward to trying some of the other ones. Sooo, any tips, tricks, or methods will be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much everyone
Cleanser: Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Shampoo (every Sunday)
COWash: Suave Tropical Coconut
Condish/Leave In: Garnier Fructis TNT
Styler: La Bella Lots of Curls
I found the coconut & hibiscus shampoo on the clearance rack at my walgreens for $5. I don't think they ever put them on the shelf in the normal area. Bought both bottles and love it.
I also have the smoothie. Someone here suggested diluting it to a spray and that works better for me than using it full strength as a styler.
The scent of the products with the gold label turns me off. The shampoo is okay but the scent of the coconut one is so much better to me.
Axed the perpetual ponytail and went curly on 1/6/2011.
Hair Properties: 3a/b, fine-medium texture, thick density, normal porosity.
Still experimenting with products and routine.
So far, I like: FSG, GTTTT, V05 Conditioners, protein treatments, this towel.

I started using Shea Moisture moisture retention shampoo & restorative condish. a while back & I LOVE IT! You only have to use a very small amount of the shampoo (I've actually had the same bottle for 4months now & I'm only 1/3 of the way thru the bottle) & it cleanses my hair very well.
As far as the condish. goes I add grapeseed oil to it for a deep treatment and then sit under the dryer for 35mins. When I'm done my hair is soooo soft and easy to comb.
I could do w/out the smell (its not horrible but I really don"t like 'natural smelling' products. However with the great results I get I will more than happily tolerate the smell.
Hair Type: A head full of THICK, normal porosity curls/coils that I am TOTALLY in LUV with!
(Transitioned for 16 & 1/2 months)
Loving: MC LI Condish, Raw shea butter, Coconut & Grapeseed Oil, SM raw shea butter shampoo,HEHH Conditioner, Braggs ACV & Egg, Mayo & EVOO PT's
I have the DT Masque and the Smoothie. Love the smell of both. I tried the DT Masque as a leave in yesterday and it is very moisturizing. The Smoothie is hit or miss for me. I really want it to work because it smells so great. These products are very rich so a little goes a long way, for me.
Sort of CG sometimes, but not really
2B, medium? normal porosity and elasticity?
