My Addiction

Standard

Since going natural, I’ve been through a lot of products. Most of the products I’ve tried have given me great results while some not so great. I’m all about how the product smells, feels, and how well it defines my curls. If it smells great but is greasy, chances are I won’t use it. I also prefer products that are all natural and organic but will try something that may not fall into that criteria if it will give me an awesome braid/twist out.

Over the months I have learned what ingredients work for my hair so I tend to gravitate to those instead of just buying anything that catches my eye. What have I learned? My hair loves and needs moisture so any butter (Shea, Aloe, Mango, Cocoa) will do. My hair also loves oil (Coconut, Jojoba, Olive, Grape Seed).

I often get asked about the products I use or would recommend so I thought it would be helpful to show you all the shampoos, conditioners, deep conditioners, leave ins, oils, and stylers I’ve tried. I planned on reviewing each but as the list grew, I opted to just list them for now and come back and add the reviews later. For items that are in my regular rotation, I’ve marked them with ♥ LOVE ♥ 🙂

Keep in mind that everyone has different results so if you decide to try something from this list, I recommend trying sample sizes before committing to full sizes. I learned that lesson after a few months of purchases 🙂
