What products keeps natural hair moisturized, that you can find instores?

Okay, hey everyone I'm 14 years of age I'm pretty good with knowing what and what not to buy. Like, avoiding such items as: parabens, mineral oil, silicones, petrolatum, etc,. But, nothing I buy seems to keep my hair moisturized and soft, for the whole day. I use Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie that works to keep my hair moisturized for days I love that stuff on twist outs. I just want something that can keep my hair moisturized for atleast 1-3 days.
So if you know of any at reasonable prices please let me know, Thanks!:afro:

    i am a 3b, (not a lover of protein) and found that alternating these products works. I co-wash with garnier triple moisture conditioners use leave-in conditioners like jane carter's revitalizing leave in conditioner, and Shea moisture restorative conditioning milk for 2nd and 3rd day hair all found at Target.
    Curly is a way of life.

    Post this on one of the forums for your curl type. You might get more responses.

    I think the info you have gotten from the ladies here is helpful.

    I add a tablespoon or so of honey to my deep conditioners and that goes a long way toward keeping moisture in my hair longer.

    Also, the Target Shea Mositure line is great. I see you use the smoothie; do you use the curl milk? It gives a lot of moisture and works well for second day hair. I like to spritz with a bit of water and apply the curl milk (I am a wash and go girl, I don't know if you do protective styles, but if you are all about twists and twistouts this will work. Do that to your twists or spritz, add SM Curl Milk and retwist at night for twistouts) and go (it is also 70 degrees where I live, so tweak this to fit your climate).

    I am also leaning toward the SM Restorative Milk (I will try this when I run out of the Curl Milk), since you get more in the bottle for the price. Random.

    Let us know how it works for you!

    Sorry for the late reply. But, I'm 4b&4c and my hair hates proteins, but I love target's natural hair care line. But, I was thinking about trying Jane Carter and/or the Curlz line. Thanks:)

    Sorry I'm late replying, but I've happened to order some Shea Butter online the other day and Coconut Oil. I've been thinking about using Glycerin everyone says it attracts moisture from the air and stuff and that Aloe Vera Gel keeps your hair really soft. Thanks if I happen to stop by one of the stores with my mom I'll see if they have it available!:)

    Adding honey to your conditioner is really the way to go. My hair loves it. I've tried all other moisturizers nothing keeps the hair as soft. Aloe vera gel actually dried kind of crunchy on my hair, so I didn't like it.

    I also really like Knot today by kinky curly...you can buy it at target.

    Curls has a curls refresher that I purchased from target. It contains glycerin and it really helps, too.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks! When my latest twist-out gets old, I'll add honey to the conditioner I just bought( Suave's Almond & Shea Butter Conditioner)and try it. I've heard lots of great comments about it so, thanks again:toothy5:

    I'm looking for a kind of deep treatment suitable for applying regularly (once a week). I prefer natural stuff and read lots of excited comments about using honey. Did someone have experience with honey deep treatments? does it work good for a 3a/b hair type? Probably some tipps for preparing the treatment and ingredients? I appreciate your help in advance.

    All that stuff you've been using is crap. I've tried every kind of stuff out there, including brands that cost 10-30 bucks a bottle. Kirastese, Aveda, Nioxin, you name it. I always go back to Pantene Pro-V. ALWAYS. It is the only thing that makes my hair feels, thick, smooth, healthy, and bouncy. I've learned through experience.
