Like Tree4Likes

purification masque
head-to-toe baby ointment (use it to seal)
restorative conditioner
Raw Shea Baby Wash
Head to toe ointment (I use it as a Chapstick, cuticle cream, and to moisturize my dry hands)
Moisture Retention shampoo
Coconut n hibiscus soap- gets the black aka dirt off you better than dove, caress etc.
Coconut n hibiscus hair milk
I've tried the Shea butter hair elixir oil and it was really good.
Also tried the frankincense and mutt bar soap- scent was too strong and put me down for the count in the shower.
The restorative mask wasn't bad but I haven't revisited it yet.
Also tried the am coconut and hibiscus curl smoothing gel, not the smoothie. Don't like it, too sticky like KCCC. Like products that are non sticky the gel is a no no.

Black Soap Purification Masque
Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo.

Curl enhancing smoothie is my only favorite. I did not like the deep treatment mask it left my hair hard and had no slip. The hair milk was very moisturizing but not enough to be a favorite.

I just purchased the thickening mist and soufflé. How do you all use the soufflé for wash and go and/or twist-outs? I tried once before to replace my Eco and it was a terrible failure
1) Curl and Shine Hair Milk
2) Moisture Retention Shampoo- Used this for the first time today and I LOVE IT. My hair was soft and manageable. I have wanted to try a new shampoo because the Giovanni shampoo doesn’t work that well for my hair, I was just trying to use it up. Now that I have this moisture retention shampoo, I’m not going to use Giovanni anymore.
3) Curl Enhancing Smoothie- Works great on keeping my hair soft and giving definition in my twist outs.
1. Hair milk
2. Moisture retention shampoo
3. Black soap purification masque

For the body: Black soap bar or body wash (great for my son's eczema flare ups)

ALL the soap bars & body washes are superb.

These are my curlfessions
About my hair:
weekly shampoo-HE Honey I'm Strong
daily conditioner-HE Honey I'm Strong (use as li)
go to style-Pocahontas braids
I only like the Moisture Rentention Shampoo! It's actually my HG shampoo as it never dries out my hair. Nothing else works for me. My hair either feels coated or the product starts flaking!

I now love the smoothie as a deep conditioner. I don't find it a good curl enhancer for my 4a hair but it is the very best deep conditioner for my hair.

I have the coconut and hibiscus conditioner. It's okay so far but pretty light. I was hoping it would work similar to the curl and style milk but maybe should have got the cowash instead.
I just picked up the raw shea detangler but haven't used it yet. It looks like it's the consistency of kckt though.

here are my updated answers

My Current Top Three are the:
1.Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner- as a leave-in

2.African Black Soap Dandruff and Dry Scalp Elixir- to refresh/moisturize twists

3.Coconut and Hibiscus Curl and Style Milk- as a rinse out conditioner

-Both the curl & shine and moisture retention shampoos work well but I'd like to see how the thickening shampoo works before I choose a favorite.
-I also tried the raw shaw detangler and am not impressed. I agree with Jenell Stewart's youtube review and will use it as a rinse out conditioner so it's not a waste.

I know it says 3 favorite but...I must add SM Curl Enhancing Smoothie to my list.

I use it as a leave-in conditioner/moisturizer. It keeps my hair super soft for days and leads to lovely twist-outs.

SM Purification Masque
-I use it a pre-shampoo detangler and deep conditioner. It has great slip, moisturizes well and smells good (like plantains).

SM Curl & Style Milk
-I use it on top of my leave-in conditioner. It smells great (like pineapple candy) and adds moisture as well as sheen.

SM Moisture Retention Shampoo
-I use it to cleanse my scalp weekly. It cleanses well without stripping.
