The move to D.C. came with a completely stocked and (fabulously) appointed loft, so we had to pack really, really, ridiculously light. I loathe clutter so gifting things, selling ish and tossing stuff brought me great pleasure. It was all fun and games until it came time to consolidate and pack my bathroom.
I can’t lie. I stay at Target gettin‘ it in and spendin‘ them spends.
I had so many products that I would research and run out to purchase ‘the latest and greatest’, only to realize that it had been gifted to me... months ago… and in some cases, had been opened, and used. That’s stupid. At any rate, if moving light didn’t teach me anything else, I identified the realest products. Over the next week, I’ll share lists of what made the trip from Happy Vally to D.C. (by product type) These are products I use on the regular and keep stocked. Like, always.
Aubree Organics GPB– Powerhouse. It’s a moisturizing + protein conditioner and a rinse-out + deep treatment, all in one! The slip is glorious and I’m always left with luxuriously soft yet strong, shiny curls. I use it at nearly every wash and use it on Gia every other wash. I’ve gotten wind of a reformulation but I have yet to buy it or try it.
FUBU’s Co-Wash & Deep Conditioner– I was gifted this product 4 months ago and have been using it ever since. I was surprised that (1) they were in the game and (2) they actually did some market research! I like the leave-in, but I’m here for the co-wash/deep conditioner. It’s very rich, ridiculously, like bust-yo-head-to-the-white-meat-if-any-gets-on-the-shower-floor slippery, and smells good. I use it to deep treat and as an instant conditioner. Lately, it’s been my go-to pre-poo coupled with coconut oil. I believe it’s only available at Walgreens right now. The ingredients are pretty decent, the price is aiight and the jar is huge. So yeah. Don’t sleep on it.
Aussie Moist– Y’all know what it is. #KittiesTitties
Next up, leave-ins and stylers!
