Hey guys! My first blog post, after a whole year of promising to blog…twice a week…but now I’m blogging. I’m hoping to blog a lot more. Wow, I said blog a lot. Moving on…
I wanted to share with you some new hair products that I recently purchased. If you keep up with my YouTube channel, you’ll know that I was experiencing some hair shedding. It got worse and I started feeling like my hair was thinning out and it just din’t look as healthy and thick as it used to.
So I decided to change up my hair care products. I’m just going to say that it’s only been 2 weeks and my hair is already looking and feeling much healthier.
I’ll start off with the Cantu products. I normally use the Profective Break Free Leave-In Conditioner which is AMAZING! But I thought I’d give it a break. And I never though i’d say this, but the Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioning Repair Cream may have actually replaced pro-fective as a favourite. First off, it smells absolutely fantastic. My hair smells edible now, a bit like pineapple.
The texture is also very creamy and thick and moisturises my hair really well. Another thing I like about it is the price. A lot of the popular leave in conditioners on the market are 10 pounds and over here in the UK, including Shea Moisture hair products. This was only 4 pounds, and there is a lot in the jar. I would most definitely buy it again. I use this on a daily basis, after I spritz my hair with water. A little goes a long way, and I distribute this throughout my hair, paying close attention to my ends.
Moving on to the Coconut Milk Shine & Hold Mist. This smells even better. Yes. Even better. You could eat it. Yum. Seriously. Anyway, I love it. It’s basically water with some stuff that makes your hair look good. I haven’t used it on it’s own so my opinion isn’t conclusive, but for now, I have nothing bad to say about it. Oh, and it’s affordable, at the same price as the leave in. I apply this when my hair is damp.
I also re-purchased some Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula. Coconut oil works wonders on my hair, and the smell is nostalgic, it reminds me of my late Grandma. She had beautiful long hair and coconut oil is the only thing she would use. The reason I din’t re-purchase this sooner is because I have a policy: I have to finish what I have before I buy anything else. I was using the Kera Care Hair essentials and Moroccan Argan oil, and even though they were good, I realised it wasn’t best for my hair. The good thing with Coconut oil is that it penetrates your hair strand, and it’s therefore amazing to moisturise the hair. It’s the only oil I can use on it’s own. I like to use this every other day, making my sure my hair is damp before applying.
And finally is the Dabur Amla Oil. I have had this for a year now. I used it quite a bit when I first got it, but then I became distracted by new purchases. I recently picked it up again. I like to massage this into my scalp every other day. The smell, again, is very nostalgic to me. A little goes a long way with this. It’s also good for deep conditioning.
In the picture below, my hair is till damp. When it dried my curls came out quite defined
and my hair felt plenty moisturised.
In terms of post wash, these are the new hair care products I use in my hair regime.
They’re working really well, and I’m really pleased with how my hair is responding.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I’ll be speaking to you very soon.
