I went to rehab last year, and I am very proud to say...
I am no longer a product junkie! Now, you guys know that I have sampled many, many, MANY hair products during my blogging/vlogging career, and that doesn't even include the several others I experimented with before entering this online hair care world. Well, I can honestly say that the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," is definitely true, for I have been on a quest to find the "perfect" products for my natural hair, and all my exploration has done is brought me right back where I started!
The products I use today are...
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Coconut Oil
- Hawaiian Silky Curl Activator Gel
- Bronner Bros Extra Lite Super Gro (for edges)
- Isoplus Styling Gel (for edges)
Straight Hair Styling
- Frizz Ease Straight Fixation
- Silk Elements Megasilk Heat Protection Spray
- Oil Moisturizer Hair Lotion by Bronner Brothers (to moisturize)
- Coconut Oil (to seal)
- and sometimes...Pure Argon Oil (to seal)
- Silk Elements Straight Edges (not shown)
I was going to do a post of my favorite products for 2013, but when I revisited my "Favorite Products for 2012" post, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that nothing had changed. If you don't believe me, just compare the list above to the one from last year.
Now, I don't want any of you product junkies out there to feel bad, because the truth of the matter is, curly/kinky/textured hair requires a lot of TLC, and product experimentation is oh so necessary, especially for those just embarking on a natural hair journey (or just hair care journey, period). I do believe however that over time, you'll find what works best for you, and your cabinets and drawers will start to feel less and less loaded down with products.
So now, tell me, are you still a product junkie?
