So to commemorate reaching one year into my transition, I decided to treat myself to a handful of new products as a reward for my commitment! There are a number of products I have wanted to try for the longest time, but I’m one of those people who usually takes forever to make a decision as I research and inspect every last detail, and end up throwing in the towel. You know what I mean; does it have cones? Any parabens? Is it thick enough? Well, not this time around! I’ve come to realise that the probability that I will find a product that is 100% perfect is slim to none, so I might as well get stuck in right? Here are a list of the products I have treated myself to:

*Afroveda Whipped Hair Gelly
*Afroveda Totally Twisted Ginger Almond Butter
*Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
*Qhemet Amla & Olive Heavy Cream

I also through in some Grapeseed oil, a restock of Coconut oil, a new satin scarf and a new natural bristle brush while I was feeling generous. I have heard good things about each of the products I mentioned above, but was swayed by the ingredient lists more than anything, especially since I have learned what my hair likes. My hair and I LOVE Coconut oil like nothing else! Also, I started out using a lot more Ayurvedic ingredients at the start of my journey, but kind of forgot about all of the benefits, so I wanted to get back on track with goodies such as; Brahmi, Amla and Bhringaraj Powder.

There’s nothing like rewarding yourself and recognizing when you have done a good job, and hopefully, I can apply this attitude to other areas in my life outside of hair, because it feels good dammit!
I will update on the products once I have tried them out but until then, happy hair growing =)
What products/ingredients is your hair loving at the moment?
