Good Bye Shampoo…Hello Mud

Standard

My days of washing my hair with shampoo has come to an end. I have discovered a better alternative…mud wash.

I would have never thought  that mud would be considered a cleanser but Terressential Organic Mud Wash is my hair’s new BFF.

 

Pros:

  • All natural
  • Makes de-tangling a breeze
  • It’s s a shampoo and conditioner in one

Cons:

  • I can only get it online and the shipping is pricey

 

Love this stuff!

Wonder Curl To The Rescue!

Standard

So after using the She Scent It Papaya Curly Souffle, I needed something that had a ton of moisture. My hair was extremely dry and frizzy. While going through my shelves of product I found some that had never been opened and decided to give it a try.

Last July I purchased all of the products from Wonder Curl. I read some rave reviews about them and had to see what the buzz was all about.

Here’s what I got:

Butter than Love Pudding
Butter than Love Whipped
Get Set Hair Jelly
Get Slick Hair Smoothie

I used the Jelly and Smoothie in the hot humid summer for twist outs and got amazing results. I couldn’t believe how well my hair held up with just those 2 products, I never cracked open the Pudding and Whipped.

To my surprise, the Wonder Curl Butter Than Love Hair Whipped gave me an amazing twist out 🙂

That night I re-twisted using the Pudding and got great results as well!

Wonder Curl does what it claims! Provides incredible moisture, shine, and softness to your hair 🙂

I Love My Hair – One Year Later

Standard

I will post more later on the products I used for this braid out. I may have found the ultimate moisturizer next to my favorite Komaza Care and Beija Flor styling creams.

What is it???? Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream. I also used Camille Rose Naturals Alma Jai Twisting Butter which is becoming a favorite for giving me the most defined twist/braid outs ever!!! These 2 products work amazing together.

My Fall Regimen…

Standard

So I’m not sure my hair care will change much now that the weather is getting cooler.

I do know I want to minimize my regimen and make it more consistent.

Because I’m often trying new products, I fall into the trap of starting and stopping a new product.

The Plan:

  1. I’m going to start by going through all the products I’m not using because they didn’t give me the desired result
  2. I’m going to use up what little products I might have left in a jar
  3. I’m going to use one product at a time until it is finished!
