New Natural

Hey natural community,

I just BC yesterday (4-23) and while I'm in college, I'm using products that I can find at Wal-Mart. All I have is nourishing coconut milk shampoo, acai berry avocado conditioner, and shea butter. I'm between a 3C and a 4 and I only have 2 weeks of school left, do you think this is a good way to build up my regimen?

    Congrads and first use what works for your hair..
    You'll need a deep condish, shampoo, condish, leave in condish, moisture, and seal in that order!!
    I'm 10 months natural and I just adjusted my regi for the summer which is a lot of co washing...for my wash n go....
    But my regi is honey/evoo pre-poo, shampoo with Giovanni triple treat tea tree and condish, kammytube (YouTube)leave condish, oyin handmade hair dew, oyin handmade shine & define, seal and do my edges with Jamaican black castor oil when I do my edges I add 1 drop of Rosemary Eo and use a baby brush!!

    As a twa I co wash everyday with hmmm let me think at first organic root stimulator condish and shampoo leave n was ion leave in and seal with evoo and massage scalp with evoo and rosemary luck!!
    Hope this helps gd luck...but

    Welcome. Take a trip to the 4a forum, because I am sure there are several threads about drugstore products.

    Many women here like Suave Naturals of VO5 conditioners for cheap cowashes, GFTN and GF Pure Clean condishes for cowash or rinse out, Tresemme Naturals for the same. Those products are available at Walmart. Also, if you are near a Walgreens they have just expanded their offering of Shea Moisture products and they are worth checking out.
