This is NOT Community Shampoo…

I’m new to the CN community and I’m in awe of all of the beautiful curlies and the wealth of information on this site! I only wish I had known about CN before I big chopped a year ago. Anyhoo…. this question is for my fellow PJs:

Do you have any hair products that your mate/spouse/significant other loves to use too?
If so, what are they and which must haves do you have to hide just to keep them all to your self?

My guy loves my raw shea butter and has become possessive over it! (as if it were his to begin with lol!)


CN Responds:

I think my hubby can tell which products are most expensive… he gravitates toward those. It’s a rare day when I find him using a product that I can easily and cheaply re-stock at Walgreens.

He loves shampoo and when I was using ‘poo bars regularly, he’d blow through one in a week’s time (on his half inch of hair)! For those of you that don’t know, most ‘poo bars are 7 bucks a pop, cost to ship and should last about a month or so. I’d get so pissed and try to remind him about the benefits of co-washing and that ‘pooing too often could dry his hair out. He cared not.

Whenever I have a box of new product arrive, he ransacks it and I usually find my most expensive shampoo or conditioner sitting on the floor of his shower. He loves my hair butters too, especially shea, and I can tell when he’s been in it because of the large chunks missing… he takes the biggest finger scoops!
Gotta love ’em 🙂

    Hubs has LOCs.

    Long long long locs. Soaks up a heckalotta shampoo and conditioner locs.

    I have a baby BAA.

    My stuff is expensive y'all – but I don't want to be stingy.

    SO, I put ALL my HG goodies (including the reject products) in the same basket!

    That way – he never sees what I'm currently using, and he often selects the runner-up product.

    I know – I'm bad!

    My husband is always using my homemade stuff but used to roll his eyes and joke about it. Then I would smell certain products on him and he was caught! Now I make stuff especially for him and he is a believer. He prefers my stuff to store bought and its a real compliment to me because he is a born critic!

  • Urban says:

    Too funny. I wish my mum would get into my stuff. She doesn't care about any of my hair stuff and won't go anywhere near it. She just buys regular grease, Pantene or Dove shampoo/con and is done with it.

  • Sabrina says:

    Just an FYI for those that use Afroveda Butters they have drastically changed their prices, including discontinuing their 320z. I saw a link on the LHCF while I was browsing thru and thought I would let you know as well. The new prices are 8oz $21.50 and 16oz $36.50 CocoLatte Moisture Mask,Shea-Amla Whipped Butter Cream. Totally Twisted Ginger Almond Butter and Curl Define the new prices are 8oz $18.50 and 16oz $31.50. Hemp Seed Lock, Twist & Roll Butter 8oz $23.50 and 16oz $41.50. B.A.R.E. Natural Hair Butter (Unscented) 8oz $18.50 and Ginger Pomade 4oz $9.75 and 8oz $15.75 so for those that use were used to the prices being around $9.00 it's not anymore.

    My hubby uses my hair products too and he is caucasian. He used to use that cheap two in one shampoo and conditioner, but now he uses mine.

  • GGmadeit says:

  • nina says:

    My husband talked a lot of mess about his hair and how he would only use Aveda, then I brought home some Miss Jessie's curly pudding. At first he denied using it, but the smell is unmistakable! LOL Now he swears by the stuff!

  • Chocolate Mom aka Blupoetres says:

    I have a lot of questions, if anyone would be so kind to help me with transitioning, I'd appreciate it.

  • MsFoxxy says:

    LoL.. this is hilarious. My boyfriend has conveniently kidnapped my Carol's Daughter Tui shampoo & hair smoothie… even though he ain't got a finger snap of hair. Men are so funny.

  • battlekat says:

    My hubby doesn't have any hair either but I purchased the KBB and it really didn't work for me so I started using it on my son's so that it wouldn't go to waste. Their barber ask me what I was using on their head. I look at him suspiciously and told him. He said that I was doing a good job keeping them moisturized.

  • Butterfly73 says:

    this is so funny!
    i don't have a spouse but my son decided that he should cowash his hair also. so i bought him the vo5 and he uses it faithfully when he showers. he even been pointing out to me when we go to target to pick up HIS conditioner
    btw he is 10…lol and i keep him with a fade, so he has no hair really.

    I caught my husband using my Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme. His face turned red as a beet. I was like the dad on Everybody Hates Chris. I said, "Hey! That's $7.00 worth of product on your finger!"

  • Unknown says:

    LOL…my BF likes to use my Jane Carter Nourish Shine..i find that us sharing doesn't work since he likes to check me about using soo much even when i paying for it lol..he also likes to use my Giovanni Tea Tree Shampoo…before he was using whatever cheap stuff he can find..now not soo much

  • Whitney B says:

    Unfortunately my bf has consistently used my most expensive shampoo in my shower for the last 3 years, and we don't even live together! There are about 5 or 6 bottles in there at any given time (I'm still using stuff from my pj days), and even after me spelling out which ones break the bank, he conveniently "forgets". I'm beginning to think that he only washes his hair when he's at my house, and my theory is only strengthen when I go to his house, and the same crusty bottle of shampoo that he's had for a year is sitting there.

  • Unknown says:

    I keep my products under the sink on "my side." He's not to particular about what he uses. I let him use my products that didn't work out so hot. I find it's a good way to keep them from going to waste.

    Any of you ladies that use Bee Mine Hair product, I saw on beadsbraidsbeyond site that their is discount code good until OCtober 15th for 10% off a minimal $15.00 purchase. the code is BBBOCT1

  • Journey to Green says:

    my hubs is all over my dabur vatika enriched coconut oil. now when i buy it i have to buy 2. one for me and one for him.

  • Unknown says:

    This post and the comments are making me chuckle. My DH has a serious thing for organic raw shea butter (and he takes fat scoops too!). He also used up an entire bottle of KBB face moisturizer by himself. I'm actually really glad he's embracing natural products… albeit by default since I'm buyin.

  • Anonymous says:

    My husband loves my Jane Carter Nourish & Shine. (That ain't cheap either.) I finally stopped hiding it and just started purchasing enough for two. As long as he promises to confine its use to his HAIR and NOT his crusty feet I'll share. LOL

  • Natural Bohemian says:

    My honey uses all of my shampoo or conditioner. He also takes 2 showers a day and has the nerve to condition each time! I'm thinking of taking back my Hello Hydration and getting the 1 liter Aussie Moist pump since clearly I buy conditioner for the house and my honey can't seem to condition without getting half of the product all over the shower walls 🙁

  • Kez says:

    Ha ha Nikki that made me chuckle at the end about big Finger scoops!!
    My husband has to use medicated shampoos now as he has Psoriasis unfortunately which is a shame (but not for products for hair!) though face and body scrubs and masks get a bashing and I don't mind but when its the expensive ones, he never offers to replace them!!
    Hmmmmm!

  • mood_indigo says:

    Yep!!! My hubs is something else. When I first started my natch journey he would mock me for all research I was doing and the products I was trying or making. Now, he uses all of my stuff. My biggest issue is with the Kinky Curly though. Like dude come on, this stuff is $30 a pop!
