It's called, "Let's play a little game..."

Hi, I'm: Give your Username.
I love: List ONE of your favorite product lines.
My Splurge is: One product you buy that you know is expensive, but you love it.
My Cheap Fix is: That CHEAP (less than $10) product you love.
I don't get why ladies love: One product that ladies LOVE that just didn't work for you.
My Little Secret is: Name ONE product or ONE Technique/Method you love that people don't seem to rave about.
I want to try: This is for all you product junkies out there, ONE product.


**CN's Response**:

Hi, I'm: CurlyNikki
I love: CURLS Curl Souffle!
My Splurge is: anything I desire at the moment ;-)
My Cheap Fix is: Herbal Essence's Totally Twisted- the best detangling conditioner hands down!
I don't get why ladies love: Miss Jessies-- for the price, the ingredients leave much to be desired.
My Little Secret is: After styling (Twist-n-Curl), I sometimes tie a silk scarf around my head (with the twists and rollers dangling down underneath) to help the crown dry in a downward position. Works like a charm!
I want to try: Ayurvedic oils and herbs

My little secret is: I actually love Miss Jessie's Creme de La Curl cleansing cream and am surprised so many ladies are trashing the line here.
I want to try: Henna, but I absolutely love my natural hair color (sandy brown with auburn highlights, especially in the summer). So maybe a straw set, but I don't think I have the patience.

Hi, I'm: Curly, PhD
I love: DevaCare Set It Free
My Splurge is: Aveda
My Cheap Fix is: Aussie Moist Conditioner & 5-minute Deep Condish
I don't get why ladies love: Miss Jessie's - It's super expensive and weighs my hair down... I've tried ALL of the products in the little 2 oz. sample size for $9 each and have not found ONE that is worth getting a larger size... On the other hand, the new deep condish (free sample at the Atlanta hair show) worked really well and smelled nice. Still may not be worth the money to buy a bigger size.
My Little Secret is: I use Aussie 5-minute Deep condish when I don't have time for the whole deep conditioner procedure. Sometimes I will do this for two week straight of washing... particularly during mid-terms and finals time.

I don't get why ladies love: Any expensive product or using 2 and 3 products (leaving-in) at a time...I don't know how you can determine which product is doing what and it seems like it would just add time, money and energy to the process?
My Little Secret is: I deep condition/co-wash everyday in the shower with this method: I detangle and co-wash with Pantene Curls or Patene Curls Deep Conditioner, place baggy on my head and let the "hot as I can stand it" shower water run on top of my baggy for heat. Let sit while showering, rinse, apply HE HH, rake through, quick rinse with cold water and shake curls side to side to separate. Fab wash and go that resembles a twist out without all the work!

My Splurge is: I don't really have a splurge. The highest priced product I have is my Aubrey Organics White Camellia Conditioner.

I don't get why ladies love: to buy any expensive product that you could be spending on your holy grails in bulk.
My Little Secret is: Right after taking out my twists w/coconut oil for a twistout, I quickly rinse with water and shake. It gets rid of my parts and spacey looks in my head...I have some shrinkage but I don't mind that. Perfect looking twistout EVERY single time!

I don't get why ladies love: anything that is by people bragging about being "mixed" with black and white or some derivation.

Presumably, there are white relative counterparts--but they never seem to be bragging about being "mixed" with black. I wont buy products that use this as their marketing plan.

TraciT said...

Hi, I'm: Traci
I love: Miss Jessie's Stretch Silkening Creme and Baby Buttercreme
My Splurge is: haha, Miss Jessie's again (Ugh, I hate the prices but nothing else I've tried works like their line!)
My Cheap Fix is: Pretty much anything by the Garnier Fructis line. I heart their conditioners! Also, for 2-strand twists their cream gel works wonderfully for me. The smells are lovely, I always get complimented for the smell.
I don't get why ladies love: Kinky Curly! Sorry folks, I know how much people rave about it but it never did anything for me and I tried multiple times. I also don't get why ladies love reading ingredients. I'm a simple girl - either something works for me, or it doesn't. Don't need ingredients to tell me that.
My Little Secret is: Consistency and a simple routine: Wash and deep condition weekly, co-wash every few days, satin pillow case, moisturize mornings and evenings.
I want to try: Say Yes to Carrots and Blended Beauty products

Crystal said...

Hi, I'm Crystal:
I love: Giovanni 50/50 Shampoo (it kills any excess product build-up without stripping my hair) and my Jilbere Shower Combs (I have four).
My Splurge is: Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue (I am clearly not overly concerned about the ingredients). I got it on sale at a natural hair expo. It really makes my twists look great, but I am looking for a cheaper alternative that gives me the same or better results. Also CIBU Thermal Shine Solution (Available at Bubbles Salons) when I get the occasional urge to flat iron, my hair looks fierce. It is an awesome product.
My Cheap Fix is: Eco Styler Gel - Clear (I don't like the smell of the Olive Oil Gel)It really lays down my edges!!
I don't get why ladies love: Kinky Curly Curling Custard (I was SOOOOOO pressed to try it, but I couldn't figure out how much product to use and it just left my hair looking like a sticky/gooey curly fro mess. (I can get a less sticky curly fro with most other cheapper products) and it took forever to dry. I ended up giving it to one of my friends and I am a stickler for figuring out ways to use up my stuff.
My Little Secret is: Reviewing Youtube natural hair videos. I have learned so many new ways of styling my hair. Sometimes people think that I went to a stylist when I do my own hair. It is such a great feeling!!
I want to try: Afroveda products, Oyin Handmade Honey Hemp Conditioner. Bee Mine Products.

I want to try: Oyin products, Yes to Cucumbers

Anonymous said...

Hi I'm: Shelli
I love: DevaCare One Conditioner and Carol's Daughter Health Hair Butter.
My Splurge is: The above and Tui Hair Smoothie. Soon to be henna (maybe) as I tried CN's henna gloss/deep treatment for the first time this weekend, then ordered 10 boxes of Jamila Henna at Mehandi.com!! Oh, and I just bought the Ouidad Detangling comb too. I know, out of control.
My Cheap Fix is: Jamaica Mango and Lime Locking Gel @ only $3.99!! (I saw someone else uses it too!!) Oh, and Samy's Curl Re-engergizing Potion.
I don't get why ladies love: Miss Jessie's (I see that I am not alone here). Too expensive, made my hair seem moisturized when it was applied, but I swear my hair would be dry as hay when co-washed.)
My Little Secret is: I use the Ouidad deep conditioning TECHNIQUE without her $50.00 deep conditioner. I co-wash, then apply Tui Hair Smoothie, cover with "shrink wrap" plastic cap and sit under bonnet dryer from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on how much time I have. Remove bonnet, wait for hair to cool 5 - 15 minutes. Then, I apply a daily conditioner directly over the deep conditioner, leave on for a few minutes, detangle and rinse, leaving a little conditioner on the ends. I tend to use my DevaCare One Conditioner for the co-wash and final conditioner. My hair is silky, tangle free and shiny after this "treatment." My natural younger sister hipped me on the method might be the key, not the product.
I want to try: Aveda Be Curly and Light Elements Defining Whip (thanks for bringing out the PJ in me CurlyNikki.com;) and Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade.

JeweLz said...

Hi, I'm: JeweLz
I love: Shea Moisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie!
My Splurge is: Most recently... Komaza Care
My Cheap Fix is: Ummm... HEHH or Komaza Care Coconut Hair Pudding.
I don't get why ladies love: To each their own...
My Little Secret is: putting warm oil (coconut or olive) on my fingertips and gently massaging my scalp every day or two. Sometimes I do this while hanging upside down on the bed (I'm a little crazy like that). It obviously moisturizes my scalp but also stimulates it to encourage hair growth! Also, prior to shampooing, which is once a month, I will spray my hair with a leave in conditioner and then saturate my hair with warm oil, (olive, grapeseed, coconut, sweet almond... etc), put on a plastic cap and then tie my satin scarf on tight and sleep in it.
I want to try: Oyin Handmade Products. I've been hearing good things about the Juices and Berries leave in and the Honey Hemp conditioner!

Anonymous said...

Hi, I'm: JessJ

My Splurge is: argan oil...AMAZING!
My Cheap Fix is: HEHH
I don't get why ladies love: Curling custards...seriously maybe its my hair but nothing had gotten them more defined than a good trim and some oil
My Little Secret is: Pre-poo with EVOO and Honey, wash with HEHH and condition with coconut oil, makes the hair so super soft...and oil bagging ends!
I want to try: Henna, I keep hearing about it but I guess I don't know enough to dive in yet

Cygnet said...

Hi, I'm: Cygnet.
I love: Everyday Shea conditioner by Alaffia as a co-wash and Nature's Gate Herbal Daily Conditioner in a homemade mix or by itself as a leave-in and moisturizing detangler.
My Splurge is: Going to be essential oils when I have enough money to buy any of them.
My Cheap Fix is: Sta-Sof-Fro. If I need a cheap moisturizer and couldn't get what I currently use, this stuff in the brown bottle is my go-to product, even though I hate the product build-up.
I don't get why ladies love: Olive oil in their hair. The only time it goes in mine is when I use it as an ingredient in my henna mixes. Goes great in food, but for the general condition of my hair, I find olive oil to be too heavy.
My Little Secret is: Well, if I told you, it wouldn't be a secret anymore.
I want to try: Jojoba oil, honeyquat, and mango butter, all individually at first, of course. I also want to try making a compound butter with shea and a couple other butters, a couple different oils, aloe vera, vegetable glycerin, and some essential oils that are healthful for the hair and enticing to the nose. I'm determined that one day, I'm going to do it.

Anonymous said...

hi,i'm: aokisun1982

I love: Shea butter,olive oil, and vegtable glcerian with water.

My splurge: Miss Jessies rapid repair $50 dollar deep conditioner. It works! I know it's expensive, but it does the job for my 4a hair.

Cheap Fix: Trying to buy protein packed store brands that mess up my hair. Can't be cheap with natural hair.

I don't get why ladies love:wearing thos tacky hair length shirts! they are silly! hair naturally grows. I also don't get the whole protein thing, it makes my hair get brittle!

My little secret: Take care of your hair, and it will grow!
I want to try:Loads of other natural hair products, but they are little to high for me at the moment.

Hi, I'm: Erica
I love: List ONE of your favorite product lines. Cantu Shea Butter Leave In
My Splurge is: One product you buy that you know is expensive, but you love it. Moisture Maniac Conditioner
My Cheap Fix is: That CHEAP (less than $10) product you love. Suave and V05 Conditioners
I don't get why ladies love: One product that ladies LOVE that just didn't work for you. Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding "Hated It" left my hair dried up an saying Bytch have you lost your mind. I do like the Curly Buttercreme, and the SheaMoisture Products etx: Hisbicus Curl and Style Milk.
My Little Secret is: Name ONE product or ONE Technique/Method you love that people don't seem to rave about. I found a gel yesterday at Sun Beauty Supply in Savannah, GA for $3.99 called "Leisure Curl Gel Activator". Oh my god that left me so moisturized and curls were defined, i've never had my twists/twistout look this delicious. Plus the gel didn't leave no sticky residue, no any dryness.
I want to try: This is for all you product Target has added more ethnic hair products that i saw yesterday i want to try. I think i wouldn't mind trying out either Bee Mine or Afroveda

My Splurge is: See above (except for the H2O)
My Cheap Fix is: Herbal Essences Hello Hydration (works better for me as a leave-in before BnCs/TnCs)
I don't get why ladies love: Carol's Daughter (thought my natural hair would like it, it doesn't. It worked better when I was relaxed);KCCC (made my hair soooo hard every time I modified my application methods, will stick to the Knot Today); Miss Jessies (i'm working on modifying my Curly Pudding application to make my twistouts/TnCs feel softer. But I like that grape scent every now and then. Baby Buttercreme will stay in the fall/winter regimen, though)
My Little Secret is: For whenever I don't want to use much product, spritzing my H2O/aloe vera gel/veggie glycerin/rosemary oil/peppermint oil mixture into my hair after clarifying/conditioning, then putting in either braids or twists, setting the ends on perm rods. That results in the lightest braidout/twistout ever for me.
I want to try: Karen's Body Beautiful, Anita Grant Cafe Latte and Rhassoul Hearts, Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk and Curl Souffle, Raw Shea Restorative Mask, Jamila Henna

I don’t get why ladies love: The real cheap hair brands, like Herbal Essence, Vo5, or Sauv√©. Don’t get me wrong, they’re good products, but unfortunately do nothing for my hair. I was surprised from the results I got from Tressemme. Apparently, my hair has Champagne taste on a beer budget too. (lol)
My Little Secret: I mix Curly Pudding and Gel to get my curls to really pop.
I want to try: As soon as I can I will Be purchasing Oyin Handmade Burnt Sugar Pomade, all the CURLS products Nikki recommend a few weeks ago, some of Uncle Funky Daughters products, and all of the Shea Moisture line at Target.

My Little Secret is: when sectioning for washing use a rat-tail comb instead of your fingers so that you won't have breakage from uneven parts (some hair from one section finds its way into another section and I end up ripping it out if I don't do this)

I don't get why ladies love: Miss Jessie's-confession, I've never tried MJ's. However, I don't think I could buy a product that cost $50 or more (sheesh, anything over $12 is too rich for my blood). At those prices, MJ's products better make me waffles in the morning.
