My Hair Products

Click to enlarge

From left to right:

Aloe Vera Juice Mix-(Aloe Vera Juice(40%) Water(60%) a few drops of Rose Oil)- I spritz my hair daily and nightly with this before I seal with an oil or butter

Shea Moisture- Yucca &  Baobab Thickening Growth Milk-
I rarely use this, but when I have my hair in twists, I sometimes use this to seal instead of an oil or butter. Once done I will not be repurchasing 

100% Raw Ghanaian Shea-Butter- I use this to seal on wash day, for braid-outs and sometimes when my hair is in twists. Basically, I use this when I feel I need heavy sealing(dry hair, etc). I sometimes slick down my baby-hairs(edges) with this too. 

My Oil Mix (Coconut, Grapeseed, and a few drops of an Essential Oil)- Used to seal

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo- I dilute this with water in an applicator bottle and shampoo bi-weekly.

Aubrey Organics White Camellia Conditioner- I use this as a moisturizing deep conditioner. I put this on my hair the day before wash day. So, bi-weekly
ORS Replenishing Conditioner- I use this as a Mild Protein Deep Conditioner which I use before and after I do a long term protective style such as braids or kinky twists. I will not be repurchasing and will switch to Aubrey GBP when this is complete.

Lily of the Desert 99% Aloe Vera Gel- I mainly use this on my face, but sometimes use it to slick down my edges if the Shea-Butter isn't working in my favor.


That's it.
  • I didn't list my Henna and Indigo because I do not plan on doing those treatments anymore, Just too time consuming and messy. 
  • I tend to gravitate towards natural hair products because they can be multi-purposed and don't leave much build-up on my hair. 
  • I also try to use a minimal amount of products on my hair. The less the better, for me.
  • \ I am sticking to what works! No more looking for a "better" product.

  3. Hi, can you please explain using vinegar and h20 for porosity?

    1. Sure. Acv can be used for those with high porosity strands( where your cuticles are lifted and NOT broken or missing). Just mix 1 part acv with 8 parts water then spray on hair. Let sit for about a minute then rinse off. The acidity in acv helps smooth cuticles making your strands absorb and retain moisture longer.
