New fav' products!!

Ok, so I love love love these products: Coconut Papaya All Natural Shampoo by Nubian Heritage; Shea Butter Plus Moisturizer and Horsetail & Rosemary Hair Vitalizer by Organics Africa's Best, and Intensive Moisturizing Conditioner by Pantene Pro-V's Relaxed & Natural line. Both of the products by Organics are mineral oil and petrolatum free! I use the Shea Butter Plus to Moisturize my scalp after shampooing or co-washing, and a few time during the week. I use the Horsetail & Rosemary on my locs, not my scalp, for daily conditioning/strengthening. They both work very well, especially the Shea Butter Plus...again because of my eczema the richness relieves and prevents outbreaks. The Coconut Papaya shampoo is very rich as well, but i don't shampoo my hair that often to prevent stripping alot of the natural moisture out of my hair. I still love the shampoo! It cleans very well and I haven't seen any residue after washing! Love it! I like Pantene's conditioner, i use it in between shampoos to co-wash and it does the trick. However it's not as rich as I would like, but it locks in the moisture for the most part. I plan on trying Nubian Heritage's all natural conditioner, which may work better for my hair.
So, are your favorite products??


Going With The FLOW

One of the best parts about wearing my hair naturally is showering!! Showering without worrying about keeping my hair from getting wet...actually, Preferring to get my hair wet! I love it! Letting the water flow thru every follicle...another beautiful moment of FREEDOM! I'm so glad that my hair is locked now, except the little babies in the back that are always unraveling. In the beginning, I still couldn't get my hair wet very often...yes, even us "latchers" have to worry about unraveling. But its been a little over 6 months now, so I'm good to go. When the babies in the back slip a little, I just grab my latch hook and tighten them up a little...not too tight because my hair easily breaks. I also would NOT recommend washing your hair/soaking your hair with water every day because it strips alot of the natural moisture out. Even when I "go with the flow", I condition my hair and rinse before getting out. Another tip, do not wrap your hair while it is still wet...it can cause molding from the inside of your locs. ewwwwwww. Air drying works best for me!
So now, I'm debating on getting a rainshower shower head. :-)
