these 4 products consistently give me great results
This is the most frequently asked question I get as a naturalista. The answer is in the 60 second video below.
why they work
BB Super Gro: This product helps define my curls, lock-in water, and add shine. Since the oil is so thick, it's able to wrap around my coils and define each strand. This product also helps keep my hair hydrated because it seals in water.
Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-In Conditioner: This is my FAVORITE hair product EVER for ALL TIME. Why? Because it's a one and done. If I'm putting my hair in a pony tail, all I need is water, oil, and this conditioner. That's it! If you want to keep your hair moisturized in a protective style that involves extensions or a wig, this conditioner will do the job. Don't use this product sparingly, use a lot to moisturize every strand. You won't be disappointed!
Mielle Organics Mint Almond Oil: This is one of the BEST hair oils I've ever used in my entire life. It's minty, which allows your scalp to get a tingly massage. The 8 fl. oz. bottle lasts for months. You don't have to use very much of it for it to be effective. It nourishes your scalp without leaving an oily residue on your scalp by the time you get to wash day. It's the bomb.com. Go try it.
As I Am Doublebutter Cream: I've been using this product for the last year. I'm four years into my natural hair journey and it would have been so nice to know about this product sooner. It's the ULTIMATE curl definer. It's the perfect product to assist with a twist-out or braid-out because it defines the texture you're creating when you style your hair. It's not a moisturizer, it's just a cream/butter. You can't swap this product out for a leave-in conditioner. It's truly a styling product that will make your hair look luscious. CAUTION: People will want to touch your hair after you use this product. *cues Solange*
why they work together
These products work well together because they all serve a different purpose. The Super Gro is great for my hair, while the Mint Almond Oil is best suited for my scalp. Depending on the style, I like the way the Super Gro and the Mint Almond Oil work together in my hair. The leave-in conditioner is necessary every time I do my hair. Whereas the double butter cream is only necessary for certain types of styles.
Please remember that my favorite products are ever-changing. Over the years, products that worked for me at one point are no longer effective for reasons unknown to me, which is why I'm always open to trying new products. If you watch my hair videos, you'll see different products come and go. However, the exception is the Shea Moisture Leave-in Conditioner.
If you have any questions about these products, please leave a comment or ask me on Instagram. Hopefully, this has introduced you to at least one new product that you're interested in trying. Until next time, stay beYOUtiful, keep life sweet, and never stop feeding your soul. -xo
