A Tip of the Hat...

What product are you REALLY digging right now?

**Dish on how you use it too!**

I haven’t had much time to try new things lately, but I have been reserving my review of Curl Junkie’s Curl Rehab Moisturizing Hair Treatment until I’ve tried it at least a few more times. I’ve used it to DT and as a leave-in for the past 3 styling sessions. It has great slip, an excellent fragrance and provides frizz control, shine and lots of moisture without being heavy. I also like that it keeps my hair moisturized for days on end without having to re-up.

    Loving the new banner – it's my first time visiting since the Curly Cutie was born!

    I'm really feeling Giovanni Direct right now, and Cantu Grow Strong Strengthening treatment. My hair is soft and well-defined, though I have a serious case of hand-in-fro syndrome!

    I have 4a hair and I like Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque as a deep conditioner and leave-in. I also use the Shea Moisture shampoo and conditioner as well. Both the deep treatment masque can also be used as a styling cream for twists. For a daily moisturizer, I dampen my hair with water, then melt coconut oil from Vitamin Shoppe and spritz in my hair.

    Oh, and I also deep treat with Jamila BAQ Henna 2010 once every 2 weeks. Now when I henna, I use VO5 herbal escapes/moisture milks conditioner to rinse and then apply the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque. I do not use the shampoo and conditioner because it costs $10 a bottle verses 99 cents!

    My hair is 4a, normal porosity and medium size strands (not fine like most curlies).

    I don't know about "REALLY digging" it, but I find myself grabbing for it a lot lately. I don't know if it is because I'm just trying to use it up or something else. It's "Shea Moisture Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist w/Coconut Oil, Silk Protein & Neem Oil" (It almost should just be called by it's ingredients list since it has this long behind name LOL). I use it after I mist my hair with filtered water and mist a little of the Hold & Shine, style hair, and then spray a little more as a finishing spray. I could have used my own custom mix of vegetable glycerin, water, and EOs spray, but this has been on my bathroom sink before I style my hair and so I grab it. It smells "good as all get out", kind of reminds me of a piña colada, but not as creamy. Fortunately, I got it in a swap at a natural hair party that a friend of mine threw earlier this summer and I'm determined to use up the products I have before I buy new ones.

    i love dabur vatika enriched coconut hair oil. it is so great even the Hubs uses it. it leaves my hair so soft and shiny and moisturized.

  • Nessa says:

    Coconut oil! I love it so much I even use it on my skin 🙂

  • Mrs. Blacksten says:

    I'm loving GVP Conditioning Balm, it's so cheap, it smells lovely, it provides moisture and slip without silicones, and it's readily available. What more could a curly girl ask for?

    I am really digging my Yes To Cucumbers. Pre-poo, detangler, and leave in?! I can't beat it! I recently mixed a little with my Knot Today, which I'm trying to get rid of, and it was heaven! I don't think I EVER wanna try another conditioner!

  • Tandra says:

    I heaaaart this stuff! The beauticurls leave-in(also a CJ product) is very moisturizing as well and has excellent slip.

  • Tasha says:

    I'm really loving Taliah Waajid's Style and Shine for my twists. It's actually a product from their kids line…but I love it!

  • kimmie0810 says:

    Hair One Cleanser from Sally's. I love this stuff. My curls have so much definition, shine & "pop" to them. And oddly there's not alot of shrinkage.

    I love this stuff.

    I just tried Pantene's Curly Hair Deep Treatment and I love it. I've used it three times so far. The first time I used a lot and to make it last longer I decided to try a little less. It worked just as well. After rinsing my naked hair feels wonderful, moisturised and soft when it dried.

    Beija Flor Naturals Creme Brulee.

    I love the scent! Reminds me of french toast and graham crackers. It's thick and creamy, and full of great ingredients.

    Today, I applied the Creme Brulee and a drop of aloe vera gel to my hair in sections and finger-combed. My curls have nice definition, softness, and movement, and my hair air-dried in 20 minutes. My 3C hair isn't frizz free, but I abandoned the quest for super-sleekness a while ago and embraced the frizz, so I'm very happy with my results.

    coconut oil and avocado oil.

    I love my alba botanica leave in, coconut oil, and glycerin & water mix spritz… works wonders every time.

  • Jay-Jay says:

    I LOVE BEE MINE Luscious Balance Moisturizer!!! It has a GREAT SMELL and keeps my hair moisturized. I only use it for my Bantu knots and Braid outs, not for straight sessions.

    I love DevaCurl Heaven in Hair! I got a Deva cut a few weeks ago, and my stylist used it as a leave-in conditioner even though it's a deep conditioner. She worked it through my hair in small sections, detangling with her fingers, sat me under the dryer, and I was on my way with luscious, hydrated curls. I noticed that unlike with the Kinky Curly Knot Today and Curling Custard, my hair wasn't dry again the next day. It stayed moisturized for several days. I have been following the Heaven in Hair routine for weeks and my hair seems to be in the best condition. It shows because I constantly get compliments on my hair lately. I went to the mall this weekend and literally got 3 hair compliments in 15 minutes! I guess my hair was crying out for this type of hydration.

    I am really feeling my vegetable glycerine, olive oil and water spritz. It makes my hair feel soooo soft. I add Giovanni Direct Leave In after spritzing and my naps are in heaven.
