Default If you were trapped on a deserted island...

... And could only have ONE cleanser, ONE conditioner and ONE styler (nightmare, I know), what would they be?

I'll start:

Cleanser: SM Moisture Retention 'poo
Conditioner: VO5 Shea Cashmere
Styler: KCCC

Nevermind that no one will be around to appreciate your gorgeousness. What would your hair need to keep its will to live going?

Cleanser: Undecided, but maybe a shampoo from Shea Moisture

Conditioner: Dessert Essence Coconut

Styler: Eco Styler Gel

Shampoo in case the gel builds up, the conditioner is multi purpose, and the gel is heavy duty so I know it'll work lol

Yes!! I actually think I may have a serious KCCC addiction. I can never truly evaluate new products because, whenever I try something new, I always end up thinking, "this would work so much better if I added some KCCC!" So I add it on, and then I don't know if the product is any good by itself! Lol!!

Ditto, hair twin!!! Though I'm torn between FSG and LALSG for that... I'm afraid the salt air would need me taming than FSG could give... But then I love FSG....

SM Yucca Baobab Shampoo, Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner, and KCCC but only because FSG would have to be refrigerated!

Wait, is there a fridge on the island? And if I can ask for a fridge, can I ask for a bevy of meerkats as well?

Does it have to be one cleanser, one condish, and one styler? Can I just take three products? Because my hair ADORES Spiral Solutions CEJ and FHG as stylers in the summer humidity, so I would take those, plus CJAO to do double duty as a co wash and LI.

If I were on a deserted island in the arctic, though, it would be a whole 'nother story - CJ shampoo, CJAO, and KCCC. Can't live without my KCCC in winter!

Cleanser: Trader Joe's tea tree tingle conditioner

Conditioner: Sally Beauty's GVP balm

Styler: Kenra moisturizing conditioner

I realize they are all conditioners, but If I'm limited to one conditioner, I'd take the Kenra I believe. :-) I think I could use it for cleansing, conditioning, and styling.

Poo: l'Oreal Eversleek...or Suave Daily Clarifying (my hair is fine and appreciates an occasional "reset" with some sulfates)

Conditioner: Tresemme Naturals

Styler: I'm torn between KCCC and LALSG, but since it's likely to be humid I'll say the LALSG because I mainly need the KCCC in the winter (= low dews) and I'm probably in the tropics somewhere on this island

I don't even use that many products so I didn't think this would be as hard as it was! I guess I like to have my options...lol

^^ Lol! That made me smile

This is hard! I like to change things up so it's difficult to choose just three. But if I was FORCED to, here's my list (as of today):

CJ daily fix
DB pumpkin seed condish
KCCC

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

Olive oil or coconut oil. Cuz I can do without condish.

Hydratherma natutals moisturizer

Her products r expensive for me so I havent used em n a while but my hair felt so good with her line!

How can I say goodbye P.L.G.

I'd just use my Long Aid. It's a styler and moisturizer. I'd survive.

Cleansing. Conditioning. I'm not strict on brands. Well my L'Oreal EverCream shampoo is a staple. So that.

Conditioners? Anything moisturizing and silicone free will do.

Reality... I'll likely do NOTHING to my hair and I'll have 1 big DREAD when in rescued!!
