I started my hair journey just after Christmas last year when my cousin pointed out the grave mistakes us black women have made when dealing with our hair, from "hair food" to the creamy crack that we all seem to love so much. Then she gave me a link to Phrophro's which gave me the basics i need to know for me to begin my hair journey.
So a few months in and I have a pretty sizable collection of hair oils and hair products but i hadn't gotten to buying these yet. They have been on my wish list for a while and last week i went out to London and i bought these!
Cantu Shea Butter
This product smells amazing, so much so that sometimes I just open the jar so I can smell it. It is a protein orientated product which when used helps to strengthen the keratin in your strands so that they are not so brittle. Now, I have heard good things about this and I'm really hoping it doesn't disappoint me quality wise but I shall hold my verdict until I use it.
Wave Nouveau Moisturizing Finishing Lotion by SoftSheenCarson
When my cousin and I started our Hair Journey's together she chose this for her moisturizer and she has loved it from day one. I have always wanted to try it and now that i finally have it I can finally form my own opinion of it. This is more moisture based and helps keep your hair from drying if used often.
Sweet Almond Oil
If any girl is to have just one product to help to after hair, it is any oil in my opinion. After trying several other oils I caught wind of another that everyone seemed to have as a favourite and i thought to myself: I have to have it. I am going to add this to my moisturizing spritz as soon as I can to help keep my braids in tip top shape.
I'll be making a post about my spritz in due time but before I do, have any of you tried these before, if so how have you found them?
