I never ordered anything online/Need creamy buttery stuff

nana_banananana_banana Posts: 735Registered Users
I just came back from getting my hair chopped off. Having long natural hair is more of a hassle than anything. I'm excited to have short hair again. :blob5:

Anyway, the hair stylist, who seemed to know his stuff (Lebanese guy who was trained in France) thought oils weren't the best for my hair. He said my hair would benefit more from something creamier, butterier.

I know so many people order online for hair products but I never have. There are too many varieties.

I need a moisturizer and a cream styler. Perhaps even a yummy deep conditioner too.

I have 3C hair with some 4A in the crown and some 3B around my ears. Fine hair strands but dense hair over all. I've been natural for 6-7 years. I have no heat damage or any color whatsoever.

What brand should I buy??
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

    You should try sample sizes of Qhemet Biologic's Burdock Root Cream OR the Amla and Olive Heavy Cream. The difference between the two is that the latter is far more thicker than the former--but for me they do the same thing: provide moisture. If you'd rather try something cheaper, Oyin Hair Dew is my go to for a daily moisturizer/leave-in. It's got the same consistency as most lotions.

    The only deep conditioner that I've ever used faithfully is Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose. I DC on dry hair, but it works just as well on damp hair. It's nice, thick, moisturizing, and creamy!

    I agree with Qhemet also. I really don't think you can go wrong with them.

    Some others I like:
    Komaza Shea Butter Lotion
    Oyin Hair Dew
    Curl Junkie Smoothing Lotion
    Camille Rose Alomond Jai Twisting Butter (or Cream I forget)

    I'm probably going to keep using olive oil. The stylist only had his hands in my hair for 30 minutes. I've had my hand in my hair my whole life.

    Have you tried Shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie? It's really creamy and can be used as a moisturizer or a curl cream.
    Whoop whoop! :hello1:

    No, I live in a non-metropolitan area in Canada, so I can't get those products locally.

    A Sally's might be opening up but it's still a rumour at the moment.

    You can find Shea Moisture at Target I have even seen it at drug stores. You may want to try a vitamen store or health food store and make your own moisturizer (using shea butter, castor oil, glycerin, and coconut oil). Its so moisturizing.

    No Target or Whole Foods where I live. :(

    I think I might pick up a few things from the Curl Mart. That way I just have to pay one shipping fee. My boyfriend is willing to buy me some hair stuff online. :love6:

    I love qhemet's products! They've used their burdock root cream since I went natural. Since you have fine hair, you might like this one more than the alma and olive. I have fine hair too and I found that it really weighed my hair down and made it look greasy.

    Thanks everyone! I'm so excited to try all these new things for my hair. I've always been very much into the less is more philosophy and trying to buy things on ground. But maybe with these new products my hair will look even better.
