February 2011 Purchases

Hair Products

2- Mane & Tail Moisturizing/Texturizing Conditioner- $6.29 (BOGO @ Sally Beauty Supply)
I love this conditioner, it does contain some protein, but my hair loves protein. Right now, I am using this once a week in my pre-poo treatments. But once my co-wash conditioner runs up, I will be using this for cowashes too.

1-Mane & Tail Hair Strengthener Leave-in- $4.99 (Sally Beauty Supply)
This is my staple leave-in for after co-washes, so I had to re-stock.

3 packs- Karishima Henna - $6.00 total (purchased @ a local Indian Grocery Store)
This is a staple in my regimen. I use a few table spoons in my prepoo and I also do full henna treatments quarterly.

16 oz Vegetable Glycerin-$6.00 (http://www.iherb.com/)
I add some of this in my new-growth spray. Makes my new-growth very soft

. 05 oz  Peppermint Oil- $4.00 a little spilled during transit, so I got a refund.  (http://www.iherb.com/)
I add a few drops of this in my new-growth spray. Helps stimulate blow flow in the scalp which could/may lead to increase hair growth. I just like the tingle.

4 oz  Silk Amino Acids- $11.00 (http://www.lotioncrafter.com/)
 Silk amino acids are the proteins that bind the filaments in silk.  These acids are water-soluble and can be purchased as a liquid or powder.   Silk amino acids are used in a wide range of beauty products including hair conditioner
Silk amino acids are an excellent addition to hair care products because of its ability to penetrate the hair shaft, bind with the hair’s natural keratin, and strengthen from within.

I will be adding this to my relaxer to help strengthen my hair. I also added this to my new-growth mix, moisturizer and creamy-leave-in. As said before, my hair loves protein. Because our hair is made of protein and the relaxer strips our hair of much needed protein, this helps replenish that loss. I also have not experienced any protein overload using this.

2oz Honeyquat- $3.25 (http://www.lotioncrafter.com/)
Honeyquat PF (Paraben Free) is a naturally derived quaternized conditioning agent made from honey with excellent moisture binding capabilities (far more powerful than glycerin) for use on skin and hair in both leave-on and rinse-off applications. It is substantive and moisturizing and with it's low molecular weight, able to penetrate hair to provide its moisturizing benefits over time while providing shine and luster. Honeyquat will improve wet-combability of the hair and reduce static buildup when dry combing

I added a little of this in my new-growth spray too, but I am thinking of other purposes. I only purchased this because you need to spend @ least $12.00 @ lotioncrafters.

Vitamin E oil (Also has Safflower Oil and Coconut Oil in it)- $2.00 (Family Dollar)
This is mostly used for my skin. But I sometimes seal in my moisture on my hair with this andI also add this in my mixes.

Hair Appliances/Styling Tools
1- pack of purple Flexi-Rods- $7.69 (Sally Beauty Supply)
ConairPro Soft Bonnet Attachment- $8.99 (Sally Beauty Supply)

Total Spent on Other Hair Products-  $28.25
Total Spent on other Hair Styling Tools and Appliances- $95.27
* These were a birthday gift to myself and plus it's tax season. So, I decided to spend less then 10% on myself while saving the rest.
