This is a little game that I saw on another hair forum that I think would be a GREAT Question of the Day….

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

    Hi, I'm Evelyne
    I Love: As I Am Twist Defining Cream (It's the bomb, really. and the whole line actually.)
    My Splurge is: Mira Hair Oil (really works for me) but I have so many other splurges like Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment, Quidad 12-minute Deap Treatment… I'lljust sotp there.
    My Cheap Fix: I buy lots of 16 ounces conditioners at the dollar stores for my co-washings.
    I don't get why ladies love: Carol's Daughter Hair Milk. Does absolutely nothing for me. I have an 8 ounce bottle that I won't mind giving away if anyone is interested.
    My little secret: Do a two-twist strand, wear a kinky wig for two days, untwist on third day and wear out for next 3 days, no one can ever tell when it's my real hair and when it's the wig. My hair looks exactly the same once I've allowed the twist time to really dry.
    I want to try: Ojon Super Sleek Treatment. (bought a bottle, but I'm waiting for some reviews on 4-b, 4-c hair.

    I just want to say everyone's hair is different, its not good to trash products online, it may prevent someone from having a successful business. Since we are all sisters, we should be lifting one another up!!! If a product didn't work for you, its ok. Try something different, but don't trash the product!!!

    Hi, I'm: bnkinky89

    I love: Giovanni Smooth as Silk Conditioner

    My Splurge is: Trying to find organic products that fit my hair (Am I right?)!

    My Cheap Fix is: Tresemme Naturals Vibrantly Smooth Conditioner (Note, before my BC, this would have been considered my "splurge" lol)

    I don't get why ladies love: Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. I used it in conjunction with the Knot Today with my hair wet and got some goopy gum-like mess in my hair. Honestly, my hair looked nice, but I like to play with my curls every now and then and having sticky stuff on my fingers after playing with my hair is not desirable. This description is what happened after 3 attempts to give this product a chance. **This is just my experience, everyone is different**

    My Little Secret is: Applying Organic Root Stimulator shea butter softening lotion (I know, it has "cones", but it's the only leave-in I've found so far that my hair likes) with a few drops of water and jojoba oil. Keeps my hair feeling soft and moisturized all day!

    I want to try: Jane Carter's curl-defining cream. I've heard so much about it and it seems like a good quantity for that price.

    My Little Secret is: I rock scarves when I don't have to go any where special.
    I want to try: doing doodle curls that I've been hearing about. Just seems to time consuming. But I think the look might be cute.

    Hi, I'm: NiqueLuv
    I love: a Canadian Conditioner called Treslite. It's fragrance free and the ingredients are Distilled Water, Behentrimonium Methosulphate (derived from colza, no GMO's, non toxic), Cetearyl Alcohol (non-drying), Citric Acid, and a plant preservative named Lonicera Japonica. THAT'S IT!!! It has a ph level of 3.5 so it instantly smooths the cuticle and detangles the hair. And I can use it as a rinse-out or leave-in conditioner/styler.
    My Splurge is: said Canadian Conditioner called Treslite! I live in Seattle so I either travel to Canada to scoop some or pay ridiculous taxes to order on line.
    My Cheap Fix is: La Bella Manzanilla Conditioner. It's got some great stuff in it (no cones, Behentrimonium Methosulphate is the 4th ingredient, aloe vera gel, castor oil), it's a great co-wash, leave-in and styler, I can get it at my local hair supply store and it's only $4.99 for 34 ounces so it lasts a long time!
    I don't get why ladies love: Carol's Daughter products (just sits on my hair and most products are loaded with beeswax), Hairveda Sitranilliah Conditioner (I got better results with Le Kair Cholesterol Conditioner), or Oyin Honey Hemp Conditioner (I find Treslite far superior when it comes to detangling and the smell was too strong). Plus, all of these have overpowering fragrances that irritate both my and my husband's allergies!
    My Little Secret is: I add vegetable glycerin to EVERYTHING hair related! I live in Seattle, where it is humid all year, so boosting the moisturizing factor of my conditioners have taken my hair to a whole 'nother level!
    I want to try: Creating my own deep conditioner from Bear Hair Fruit. And it would have to be fragrance free, of course.

    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.

    My Cheap Fix is: That CHEAP (less than $10) product you love. Suave and V05 Conditioners

    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

    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.

  • Cygnet says:

    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.

  • JeweLz says:

    Hi, I'm: JeweLz

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    Sorry to name multiple products as an "anonymous" above was so irritated by so many of us doing that…..but there are many products that I was unhappy with, and it's hard to name just one. Sometimes when you think you are alone in hating a product, you see that someone else was feeling the same way. 🙂

    My Cheap Fix is: VO5 if I need a quick detangling session.
    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 want to try: Indigo…but I'm super afraid of henna loosening my texture. So I don't know what to do as far as wanting SUPER dark hair. :/

    My Cheap Fix is: HE Hello Hydration
    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!

    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.

    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.

    My Splurge is: Jane Carter's Twist and Lock ($22) and Carol's Daughter Hair Milk ($18)

    My Cheap Fix is: Suave Naturals Coconut ($3)

    I don't get why ladies love: Henna. How does it differ from a deep condiitoner, if at all? Henna seems to just increase manipulation with the hair. I'll pass on it.

    My Little Secret is: glycerin/water mix

    I want to try: Miss Jessie's, but I refuse to spend $30-something for 4 oz of product, or however many ounces it is.

    I love: Kinky Curly Knot Today and Pantene Relaxed and Natural Intensive Moisture Mask
    My Splurge is: Oyin products
    My Cheap Fix is: Herbal Essence's Totally Twisted
    I don't get why ladies love: Miss Jessies or Mixed Chicks. just never worked out.
    My Little Secret is: using the moisture mask as a detangler and using curling custard in the shower is the reason why i can still rock wash & gos.
    I want to try: Henna, the Qhemet line, and i'm kinda curious about Carol's Daughter. oh, and Nik, i will be trying that scarf trick!

    Hi, Tawanab

    My Splurge is: Hand Dry Hair Glove…Helps me to wake up with 95% dry hair

    My Cheap Fix is: CocoShea, I mix Shea Butter and Cocunut Oil and it leave my hair shiny. Plus is serves dual purpose as a skin moisturizer

    I don't get why ladies love: Miss Jessies!! Far too expensive and the scent of much of the line leaves alot to be desired
