Greetings!

I had to write to GUSH over this AMAZING deep conditioner! I discovered it via one of my favorite hair vloggers, Melshary. It’s the LACE Natural Brahmi Root Hair Masque. I wish I had the words to fully express to you the amazing-ness of this deep conditioner. AH! It literally melts into my hair and INSTANTLY softens my hair. It has great slip and makes detangling a BREEZE. It also has a nice soft scent, that’s not too over-powering. It’s just awesome and I need to not EVER be without this stuff!

I also LOVE that it has all natural ingredients because I like to leave my deep conditioners in my hair. Yes, you read that correctly; I don’t rinse them out! My hair feels great after leaving this in! Have you ever tried this DC? What do you think? Isn’t it AMAZING?!

Yes, it’s been forever. Now that we’ve acknowledged that, let’s move on 🙂 If you don’t know, my daily style is pretty much a wash and go. I wear them 99.9% of the time. I haven’t mastered the art of a lasting twist-out yet, so wash and go’s are just easy for me. ANYWAY. I was pretty much re-doing my hair every morning because after sleeping on it, it was of course, a little matted and just not poppin. I’ve tried pineapples and banding, etc. to preserve curls, but my hair was just not having it.

SO. I’ve been on the hunt for a hair gel that holds my hair without a disgusting crunch. I got 2 gels to try out a while ago, and here are my thoughts on the Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker gel and Shea Moisture’s Curling Souffle.

Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker: AWESOME softness and shine! However, the hold was not as long-lasting as I was looking for. Now, the label does say that it provides a softer hold, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. But I love how soft and sleek my hair felt when I used this!

Shea Moisture Curling Souffle: I have to say my hair felt horrible when I used this gel. It felt gunky, rough, and just disgusting. But, it looked AMAZING lol. It was shiny and my curls were POPPIN. I personally hate when my hair feels disgusting, but it looked so good, I dealt with it! My wash and go lasted the FULL week, from Monday to Sunday when it was time to wash it. In the mornings, I just spritzed my hair with a little water, fluffed it out, and that was IT!

Moral of the story: I love BOTH gels for different reasons! If I want a super low maintenance style for the week, I’ll go with the Shea Moisture, but if I need my hair to be soft and touchable, I’ll use the Camille Rose. Have you ever used either gel? How do you like them?

Hey Curlies,

Maybe y’all can relate to my confession. Having high porosity hair + super PICKY hair = major problems for my pockets! I’ve found several products that I like and that my hair LOVES, but because I have to layer product upon product upon product in order for my hair to maintain moisture, it gets SO expensive!! For example–I went through an entire 8oz bottle of Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave-in Conditioner within a week ($16). I used up most of my Oyin Hair Dew within 1.5 weeks ($13). I FLY through a whole bottle of Shea Radiance Moisturizing Hair Milk in a week, if that long ($16). The first 2 products I use to moisturize my hair at night, and the Shea Radiance product I use to refresh it in the morning. Guys, that’s $45 a WEEK..$180 a MONTH on hair products. That doesn’t even include deep conditioners, oils, and shampoos. Smh..this is getting ridiculous. I need a 2nd job just to pay for my hair products!

I try cheaper products and my hair turns out dry and feels like it’s literally going to snap off of my head. The more expensive stuff is what I need, but I’m often forced to use other stuff just because I can’t always afford the other stuff. So frustrating. Smh.

*SIGH* Okay y’all, I just had to vent. Back to your regularly scheduled programming 🙂
