2012 In Review: Hair Care Products

All glory and honour be unto the Most High God, his only begotten Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost, our comforter for the opportunity to experience the end of year. I thank the Lord for your lives as well and for all the support you’ve given us.

Styling Kits

  • Blow dryer + Flat iron
  • Rollers
  • Flexi rods
  • Straws
  • Wide tooth comb
  • Medium tooth comb
  • Small tooth comb

The Leave-ins

The One step leave-in is basically watery, full of water.I got it following down the hair unto by back all the time even when the hair was partially dry. It actually stained one of my favourite tops so bad that I had to get rid of it; nothing could get the yellowish colour of the product of the white top. This pushed me to opt for a creamy leave-in, that is the MVP leave-in (Review coming soon)
Deep conditioners

I love all the deep conditioners I used but I’ll try new ones and maintain a few.

The Moisturizers

This is the only product I’ve not ventured into is the exception of the Hawaiian Silky Moisturizer. I’ve had it for more than a year because I don’t use it regularly. It’s not too watery but watery enough to get the hair damp.  I’ve found an alternative and currently trying it (Review coming soon).
The oils
I’ve pretty much stuck to my oils and even added new ones to it. Coconut oil plus regular castor oil is my stables. I’ll be adding more to it.
Heat Protection Serum
Organic Root Stimulator heat protection serum is still enough to last me till probably the end of 2013 and when it runs out, I’ll repurchase it.
