The Best Haircare Lines!

Like Tree1Likes

Hello Curlies!

As some of you may have read in an earlier thread of mine, I recently experienced a big disappointment with the WEN haircare line .

As a result, I now need a new line that imparts mega-moisture and healthiness , therefore I would love to hear your suggestions!

You can see some facts about my hair in my siggy below; my routine has generally been to clarify with a gentle and sulfate-free shampoo once or twice a month, and co-wash any other time.

Let 'er rip!

I am sorry about things not going well with your using WEN.

When it comes to haircare lines, we all have different haircare lines that we use on our hair. Therefore, the product lines that are favorites of mines definitely will differ from others here.

My top haircare line favs are:

Mixed Chicks ( Shampoo - Gentle Clarifying version), Deep Conditioner, Leave In Conditioner, Replenishing Oil

Shea Moisture (Shea Moisture Curl and Shine Shampoo, Curl and Shine Conditioner, Raw Shea Butter Retention Masque, Anti breakage Masque, Curl Enhancing Smoothie, Transitioning Milk (can be used by both transitioners and naturals as well).

Cantu for Naturals Collection ( Cantu Curling Cream, Cantu Co Wash, Cantu Sulfate Free Shampoo, Cantu Conditioner
3B natural hair

Current Regimen: Daily Bunning

Products currently using:
Shea Moisture Curl & Shine Shampoo
Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo
Shea Moisture Curl & Shine Conditioner ( I do use it with steam)
Protein Conditioner- Tresemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner (I do use it with steam.)
Shea Moisture Transtioning Milk
Pre-Poo Treatment- I switch between Regular and Extra Dark JBCO ( The lines I use from are - Jamaican Mango & Lime, Tropic Isle Living, and Sunny Isle)

If I had to choose Shea Moisture comes out on top. I like Kinky Curly too but I have to use a lot of it to get the results I like. Same with the few EDEN BodyWorks and As I Am products I've tried.
Very fine, high porosity, currently dyed and growing out the relaxed portions. I'm pretty sure my hair's 3b something IIRC. We will be finding out for sure as time goes by.

It's official: My hair just loves Shea Moisture. I use a mixture of products from the Raw Shea Butter, African Black Soap, and Coconut & Hibiscus lines.
Shea Moisture and Faith in Nature products are the ones I'd most recommend. Awesome ingredients and just all-round great; very moisturising & nourishing for my hair.

Love shea moisture, and kinky curly
I have been experimenting in the over the counter brands.
Treseme, LA Looks, Sauve, Garina, Herbal Essence, (sp?)
I have tried Wen, didn't like and Ouidad - liked one product and Deva-liked one product.
Thinking of trying Curl Junkie next. I need to use up some of the products I have now...

Looking for new products and methods to try!

Avatar is a product of this lovely lady: Ash The Painter on Tumblr


I have a less well known suggestion: Dermorganic. It's new to me and I'm loving the hydrating shampoo, daily conditioner and gel. All CG and natural ingredients. Conditioner is great for co washing, regular conditioning and leave in. Holding up well in humid florida summer weather. Can be purchased at Ulta or online.
The only line I've tried thoroughly enough, in terms of different products, is SheaMoisture. And I love SM.

Moisture Retention Shampoo, Restorative Conditioner (as a leave in), Curling Gel Souffle, Purification Masque, Anti-Breakage Masque, Finishing Elixir.

I've only been "eh" with two products. The Thickening Mist and the Deep Treatment Masque. But I still don't hate them. I like the DTM as more of a leave in. The Mist just didnt do anything for my hair, but has good ingredients and smells amazing.

Plus, I like some of their body products as well. I love the Argan Oil and Raw Shea Body Scrub, the matching lotion is nice as well. The lotions are thick though.

Curl Junkie is on my list to try, but you have to order online. Actually I'd say the Curl Junkie Daily Fix seems like a good option to try if you're looking for a cleansing conditioner like Wen. Also, As I Am has a Coconut Cowash that I want to try, as well as the Hydration Elation conditioner.
24y/o - 4a - Medium texture - Medium to high Density - Medium to High porosity - Still figuring things out

Low-Poo: SheaMoisture Moisture Retention
No-poo: Terresentials Pure Earth Hair Wash
Cowash: Trader Joes Tea Tree Tingle, SheaMoisture Purification Masque
Leave-in: SheaMoisture Restorative, Nature's Gate Hemp
Styler: SheaMoisture Curling Gel Souffle
Deep Condish: Trying out KBB Luscious Locks, SheaMoisture Purification Masque
Oils: Coconut, Jojoba, SM Elixir
Two new ones to me I can't recommend enough, especially the first, is Camille Rose and Original Moxie. I've just been LOVING these. I can't even say enough about Camille Rose Whipped Aloe-butter Gel in particular. For me, far suprasses Shea Moisture.
I haven't found the right amount of SM yet. I really like Kinky Curly though, it seems to be working for me right now.
Fine, med/high porosity, med density, protein craving
Last chemical straightening Nov. 2013
another vote for CURL JUNKIE
Medium Texture/Normal Porosity
Conditioners: Curl Junkie conditioners, Elucence moisture balancing, Darcy's pumpkin seed, Mop Top Daily
Gels: CJ Pattern Pusha, CJ Curl Queen, UFDCM, Mop Top Curly Custard, KCCC (wish it didn't take so long to dry!), CJ Aloe Fix Lite
Weekly PT (CJ Repair Me) & DT
Icequeen method
CG since Aug. 08, still a lot to learn

I'm loving all the responses! Feel free to add your cents, if only to add a vote for a line that was already mentioned! I tried to add a poll for more efficiency, but I guess it's too late for that.

Has anyone tried these two new line from Shea Moisture? The Superfruit Complex and Tahitian Noni and Monoi?

I've tried both Curl Junkie and DermOrganic. I like DermOrganic but I LOVE Curl Junkie. I always return to CJ and suspect my product junkie days are coming to an end.

A few different product lines come to mind...

Curl Junkie- love their cleansers and conditioners (both cleansers are excellent, Beauticurls Strengthening conditioner is my favorite conditioner). Styling products are hit or miss for me, although Curl Queen gel is HG for me

Deva- I know it's a love/hate thing, but my hair really likes the DevaCARE No-Poo and One C. And I love B'Leave-In and Ultra Defining Gel

Sweet Curls Elixirs- Okra Gel and Hard Hold Gel are amazing for my hair

Spiral Solutions- I love everything I've tried. Caitlin's Conditioner is moisturizing without being heavy, Repairing Protein Treatment is my favorite LI (very protein-craving hair), Curl Enhancing Jelly and Hard Hold Gel are fantastic.

3a/f/iii
Modified CG since 11/5/11
CLEANSE: VO5 Vanilla Mint Tea Clarifying, DevaCare No-Poo, CHS Treatment Shampoo
RO: DevaCare One Condition, SS Caitlin's Conditioner, Mop Top Daily Conditioner
LI: SS Repairing Protein Treatment, CHS Silk Leave-In
STYLE: Re:Coil, Curl Keeper, Deva Ultra Defining Gel, Curls Rock Amplifier and Strong Hold Mousse, Sweet Curls Elixirs Okra Gel and Hard Hold Gel, SS Curl Enhancing Jelly and Firm Hold Gel

My favorite cowash is Kiss My Face Whenever Conditioner.

Curl Junkie products are lovely, although I didn't like the cleansing conditioner like many people here do. The Argan & Olive Oil conditioner is beyond amazing.

My fav clarifying shampoo is Yes to Cucumbers (the sulfate free one with the rounded top). You don't need a sulfate to clarify. I was all about the sulfate clarifier, but this works just as well and much less harsh.

My favorite RO of all time is Sevi Pumpkin Seed conditioner.
2c-3a - coarse - normal-high porosity - high density - growing out to donate

NP/LP: KMF Whenever Conditioner/ YTCucs
RO/LI: Sevi Pumpkin Seed DC / CJ Argan & Olive Oil, KCKT, YTBbs
DT: Coconut Oil + scalp massage
OIL/STYLER: SM Elixir / KCCC
COLOR: henna, amla & indigo
