Ladies we are not our hair. So many times we get obsessed over hair styles and how to do them to make them look like the YouTube clips, or we become hair product junkies and we have more hair products on the shelves than we do grocery in the pantry. It’s not that serious, IT’S REALLY NOT THAT SERIOUS.
I’ve gotten questions from people about what products I use, how do I get my hair to do this or that. Now I’ve watched my share of YouTube videos, and I love em! However at the end of the day my mission is and has always been, get the most, for the cheapest. Get the most benefits for my mane without breaking my pocket. I did the big chop two years ago. I’ve never been a product junkie, I’m somewhat of a minimalist in my hair care products, and I concentrate more on the daily hair care routine; in doing so I have come to find five products that work together well and that I use:
· Shea Moisture’s Raw Shea & Capuacu Frizz Defense Shampoo and Conditioner,
· Kinky-Curly Knot Today Leave in Conditioner,
· Shea Moisture 100% pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil,
· Eco Styler Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil Styling Gel,
· Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Frizz-Free Curl Mousse
That’s it. These are the only products you’ll find in my cabinets, my stash. These products for me moisturize, fight frizz, and structure my curl pattern. What I’ve found as with anything, we have to be consistent in the routine, get to know your hair, become real acquainted with your strands. For instance, when the seasons change, get a different moisturizer (use up the one you have first! LOL) and the results will be fab. Be Happy Nappily!
