The Sub Is In!

By January 27th, 202112 Comments

The beautiful Wes of HoneyBrownSugar is back! She is manning today. Check out her post below:

If I were stuck on an island, which 5 hair products would I absolutely NEED to have?

1. Elasta QP DPR-11: Since I’ll be stuck in the sun and sand all day I’ll need to keep my hair extremely moisturized. This deep conditioner is so rich that I don’t need to add coconut (or olive oil) to it.

2. Pantene Relaxed & Natural Conditioner: Is multipurpose! I use this to slick back ponytails and for styling wash & go’s, twist outs, etc.

3. Ouchless Goody Ponytail-holders: Ponytails, braids, buns- I use these to hold everything in place.

4. Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo: Great for removing impurities and residue (like sand). *I usually clarify using this shampoo once a month.

5. Denman Brush: This brush works wonders for me, its been by my side for about 2 years now and I won’t go anywhere without it!

So there you have it. To be honest, if I were going away on vacation I would only pack three of the above- Pantene R&N Condish, ponytail holders, and my Denman. That’s all, that’s it. I’m a pretty simple girl.

What are your 5 must haves?
