I have been natural since 2009. Where has the time gone?I have tried my fair share of natural hair products - from shampoos, conditioners, stylers, and everything in between. I am a real product junkie at heart, but I have my staple products that I can't live without. Quite honestly, I hope and pray that my staples never get discontinued because I just might cry! I am consistent with my Healthy Hair Regimen and use a lot of my Holy Grail products on a regular basis. Here are a few of my Holy Grail products that I pray never get discontinued.
I shampoo my hair weekly. My current favorites include are Design Essentials Avocado and Almond Shampoo and EDEN Bodyworks Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo. I always look for shampoos that won't dry my hair out. I love this Design Essentials shampoo because it's a sulfate-free formula that's infused with almond and avocado, which makes my hair very soft and easy to detangle. The EDEN BodyWorks Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo is good when I need to clarify my hair and does not leave it feeling stripped.
If you know me well, you know that I am obsessed with deep conditioners. If TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask ever gets discontinued, you might find me in my kitchen trying to recreate it myself! It makes my hair so soft and hydrated and penetrates my strands, leaving them super moisturized after rinsing it out. I also love the Mielle Organics Babassu Oil Mint Deep Conditioner because it improves the elasticity of my hair. I have low porosity hair and this deep conditioner makes it easier to detangle and leaves my hair smooth. I use it once a month to keep the protein and moisture balance in my hair.
My holy grail leave-in conditioners are EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave-in and Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave-in. Please don't ever stop making these! They are perfect in every way for my hair. Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave-in is a liquid product that I also use to refresh my hair. It has dual purposes and serves as a heat protectant as well. The EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave-in a creamy conditioner that is not heavy for my low porosity hair. It’s important that my leave in conditioners are very lightweight.
I like to create different hairstyles, so it's imperative that my styling products can meet the needs of my different hairstyles. I love CURLS Blueberry Bliss Twist-n-Shout cream and also EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Curl Defining Creme. I use these two products for almost any style including twist outs, Bantu knots, braid outs, and even perm rod sets. I do twist outs the most so if these two products were ever to get discontinued my life would be in shambles.
I am pretty sure that carrier oils are here to stay, but just in case someone wanted to get rid of making them, please never stop making sweet almond oil and grapeseed oil. Sweet Almond oil helps seal the moisture in my hair. It also promotes hair growth. Grapeseed oil contains Vitamin E which also promotes hair growth, and it also leaves my hair shiny without feeling greasy.
I love trying the latest products, but my Holy Grails are what I live by and like to use regularly. I hope none of my Holy Grail products get discontinued, but if they do can you all let me know first?
