My Staple Hair Products

8:47:00 AM 3 Comments A+ a-

I am often asked what my staple hair products are and I thought now was the perfect time to share a list of them with my readers. I am a HUGE fan of the Shea Moisture line because of their creamy products. It has taken me 8 months to realize that my hair responds better to creamy products, and not those that are oil-based or watery.  The Shea Moisture line is available at your local Target store or Amazon. Some of the other products that I use are readily available on Amazon as well and at your local beauty supply stores.

As you can see, I don't use very many things on my hair but those that I do allow me to achieve the results I desire. Do not get discouraged if you find your hair not responding well to a product. Do your research and experiment based on your curl type.

How I use it
Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
Shampoo. Used once a month.

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioning Milk
Used for weekly cowashing and mixed with the deep treatment masque for extra moisture

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Conditioning Milk
Hair moisturizer. Use as needed which is typically every other day. I also use it to twist my hair.

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist
Before bed or in the   morning, I mist my hair with this to refresh it.

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Restorative Trauma Masque
For deep conditioning twice a month. Used after I rinse out my regular conditioner and mixed with a little olive oil and honey.

Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil

When I twist my hair, I apply a little bit of this oil on the ends to seal in the moisture.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil

If you have thinning hair or to prevent thinning of the hair, massage this oil onto the scalp one to two times per day.
Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner

If I’m out of Shea Moisture conditioner, I will use this conditioner. Perfect for really dry hair.
Curls of the World Flaxseed Gel
If your hair feels dry, use this for styling daily. Will add moisture to hair and define your curls. Can also be used when doing twists. 
Jane Carter Solution Revitalizing Leave-In or Curls of the World Tahitian Bay Leave-In
Used after washing my hair and before styling. NEVER skip this step.

OMG! I am in LOVE with Hello Hydration conditioner. I use the Shea Moisture cream as well when I braid my hair at night before wearing a bun. Good stuff. Where do you purchase your Jamaican Black Castor Oil?
