    Coconut oil!!! This oil has made beautiful love to my hair and in return my hair had grown TREMEMDOUSLY in the past 3 mths I've used it. I use it to lubricate my scalp as well as a sealant for my hair shaft.

    The rest of my products I rotate out to prevent resistant hair, so I wouldn't call them a "holy grail" per se.

    Beautiful Textures Deep Conditioner, $7ish at Sally's. Smells delicious and moisturizes my hair like none other -- my hair actually ABSORBS it! In the shower my hair doesn't feel heavy, it feels slippy and moisturized.

    Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Relaxing Balm. Makes my waves smooth, sleek and soft. And mixed with TIGI Curlesque Curl Amplifier, which adds hold and bounce to my hair, it's a winning combination! My hair looks awesome, consistently.

    Renpure Organics shampoo in the red bottle. Sulfate free, but removes all buildup and it doesn't strip my hair. I like to mix it with a light conditioner for a super gentle co-poo.

    And lastly, argan oil. I love it, my hair really absorbs it and it adds shine and softness.

    Honestly. Sauve coconut. I use this daily as my styler. If I'm not using it to style because I used a heavier conditioner I will use it to cowash then. Love products with multi uses. 😎

    + 1 ... I didn't include this because it's still early (I've had high hopes for a lot of products that suddenly quit after 2 weeks), but I really like this poo and condish too.

    AOMM - I love that it leave my curls defined, shiny and soft. :cyclopsani:
    AOHSR - Gives my hair moisture and I get so many compliments on the smell! lol
    AOGBP - When my hair needs protein and I don't have time for a PT. Also a mild PT when I leave it on overnight.
    Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - A good pre-poo and/or overnight treatment under a baggie. Sealing with it is a huge help killing the frizzies when I'm back in humid Puerto Rico.

    SS DDMT- my deep treatment and rinse out. Combined with the right stylers, this gives me the silkiest, shiniest, clumpiest, bouncy waves. LOVE it!

    CJ PP & CCCCL- Though the ingredients in these two are different, they behave similarly in my hair, giving me great clumps, softness, definition and shine.

    AOMM- This one gives a really natural look with just a little hold, but I love the shine and softness. I usually scrunch in a little gel with it.

    Pure & Basic Clarifying Shampoo- I use this on days that I deep treat and it always gives me the best hair days. This poo contains an ingredient that is hard to find that removes non-water soluble/non-sufate poo soluble quats.

    this is tough, i'm a product junkie but...

    i can't live without:
    -coconut oil (i pre poo w/it overnight 1x a week)
    -jessicurl stimulating scalp oil (on my scalp when coconut is in hair)
    -ouidad 12 minute deep treatment (2x a month w/heat)
    -shea moisture growth milk (as a leave in)
    -CHS curl keeper
    -ouidad mongongo oil (been using this a bit over a month & my hairs never looked better!!!!)

    Curl Junkie CCCC. My hair would not do *anything* until I tried this. :blob2:
    HETT gel
    Devacurl FFVF (frizz-free volumizing foam)

    I'm enjoying CK and SMCHS, looking forward to trying CHS treatment shampoo, too. I'm finding that cowashing isn't doing it for me right now, though it could be the FFVF.
