I'm still a newbie, but I started running out of the products I bought when I first started last April. So I bought new ones and I have to admit that I am somewhat of a product junkie.
When I started my journey I bought Herbal Essence Hello Hydration for my cowashes, prepoos and regular conditionning, I also got Queen Helen's Cholesterol to deep condition. Because I'm a junkie, when both these products were finished, I decided to try others. I bought three different cheapie conditionner before repurchasing HEHH (a staple for me). What a waste... The one I am most dispappointed is Tresseme Moisture Rich. I was so sure it was a good buy, I got the 1L bottle. I hate it. :-(
When my Queen Helen's Cholesterol ran out, I bought HB Carrot Cholesterol. Now, I don't hate that one, but it doesn't give me any slip when I rinse it out. So detangling is hard for me. The pro for this one is that when my hair dries, it so soft, unbelievable. I texlax now so I have curly roots on purpose. For soft roots, I definitely need to keep that one. I just need to add something to it to give me slip.
So far, my staples are :
*CON shampoo green bottle (until it runs out; they don't sell them anymore here in Montreal, only the new bottles)
- - I really want to try KeraCare; I have to find where they sell it here
*HE HH (love the smell, the slip it gives me, the manageability of my hair)
*Wave Nouveau Moisturizing Finishing Lotion (this one I repurchased no hesitation)
*Castor Oil (haven't gotten THE JBCO, soon maybe)
*Hot Six Oil (it's light, smells good, just love to seal with it)
*Honey (always in my prepoos now)
