Frequently, I am asked what products do I use on my hair. During a certain period of time in my natural hair journey, I was a product junkie and tried a lot of products. I was searching for the magic products for my hair. Once I took the time to learn the texture, porosity, and elasticity of my hair; I was able to choose the correct products for my hair.
My holy grail products are pictured above, and every product was purchased with my own money.
I LOVE Body Shop’s Rainforest Moisture Shampoo! This is one of the few shampoos that I have used that lives up to its name. When I finish washing my hair, it feel clean and moisturized. Other shampoos I have used would leave my hair feeling clean, but dry. This shampoo is a winner!
Curl Junkie’s Beauticurl’s Aragon & Olive Oil Daily Hair Conditioner is the truth! This conditioner seems to instantly detangle, as well as moisturize my hair. It can be used as a leave-in conditioner too.
Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Balance Moisturizing Conditioner is the conditioner I use to co-wash. This conditioner has great slip and provides a good moisture boost for my hair. This conditioner is less than three dollars at Trader Joe’s.
Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Cleansing CoWash is used for cowashing too. I love the slip and the moisture it provides to my hair. When I finish using the cowash, I don’t feel the need to add a leave-in conditioner to my hair.
Oyin Handmade products have been a mainstay in my regimen, since I discovered them in my second year of being natural. I consistently purchase the Honey Hemp, Hair Dew and Juices & Berries for my hair. I use the Honey Hemp for cowashing and a leave-in conditioner. During the summer months, I use Hair Dew for a leave-in and the Juices & Berries as a refresher.
I wasn’t big on deep conditioning. Since I have my hair colored, I know deep conditioning is essential. There are two deep conditioners that provide the moisture and restorative conditioning my hair needs: The Coiffed Cafe Cocoa Conniption and Blue Roze Beauty’s Cocoa Coffee Rhassoul Hair Mask. These two products may not be available, but the product makers will have comparable products. I love the chocolate smell of both and my hair feels soft and conditioned, after a treatment with either of these products.
I hope my Holy Grail’s can help you in your search for great products and excellent product makers!
