Product Junkie: What's in my Shower

I've been trying to tame my product junkie ways... but as of right now these are my favorite conditioners (and 1 shampoo) to use on my hair. It's a bit much, but I love ALL of these products.




(Left to Right)

1. Organic Root Stimulator Replenishing Conditioner - A favorite of mine when I was relaxed and works well now that I'm natural. I use this for deep conditioning. It leaves my hair feeling so moisturized.

2. Herbal Essence Hello Hydration - I jumped on the HE bandwagon a bit late but this stuff is pretty amazing. I love the smell and it has quickly replaced Suave Naturals Topical Coconut as my favorite co-wash conditioner.

3. Twisted Sista De-Frizz Conditioner - I stumbled upon this little gem while in TJ Maxx. I was unfamiliar with the Twisted Sista line but it cost under $5 so I gave it try. Plus I liked the packaging and I couldn't resist the curly haired black girl on the front. I was shocked at how well this worked and that I hadn't heard of it sooner... but I guess that's due to the product being based out of the UK. The conditioner is uber rich and feels amazing on my hair. I can feel my curls popping the moment I put it on, no joke! I bought a bunch of this stuff from TJ Maxx in case they didn't get more in... but if you get an opportunity to find this stuff by you then I think you should give it a try.

4. Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo (Suflate-Phosphate and Paraben Free) - I've been using the Moroccan Oil Oil Treatment, but I hadn't tried their shampoo. Now that I have my Brazilian Blowout I had to use a shampoo that was sulphate free. I actually have been pleased with this product. I still prefer co-washing to shampooing, but I do use this about once a week.

5. Garnier Fructis 3 min Undo Dryness Reversal Treatment - This is my MUST HAVE product. It contains Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Oil and Apricot Seeds. This is a dream mixture. It's so rich and thick. It really does feel like heave as it coats my hair. It's funny how 3 mins with this on in the shower can work wonders. I usually put it on my hair and cover with a plastic cap while I shower and shave. It's hard to describe how rich my hair feels after using this. EVERYONE needs this.

6. DevaCurl One Condition - This was on clearance at Target for under $10 so I had to pick some up. I've heard nice things about the DevaCurl line of products and I liked it. I wouldn't call it my must have item as I wouldn't pay full price for this, but it does its job.

7. Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner - This was my all-time favorite co-wash conditioner while I transitioned. After my big chop it was still good but I think HE Hello Hydration works better for me. I think Suave puts out pretty good products and they're SO affordable. It's nice.

I just saw Twisted Sista at TJ Maxx last weekend. I should have gotten it. Great blog. Thanks for the info.

I eyed this in TJ Maxx a few times before I broked down and bought it. It's funny because the way I went back and forth you would've thought it was some big time splurge, but it's under $5 and well worth it.

3 min undo is THE most wonderful thing in the hair product world, my sister and I are junkies for all GF products, the hair serum is fabulous!

@ Fab, Funny and Foolish - Yes, The 3 min Undo is my miracle product. I actually hated all the GF stuff when I was relaxed but it does wonders for my hair now... and the smell is delicious.

I've been hearing a lot about the Twisted Sista products. Does anybody know the ingredients?

@ Victoria - I'm sure you can google the ingredient list online. I know for sure they aren't organic products... but I like the results I get.
