    Hit: Shea moisture coconut and hibiscus curl and style milk.
    This stuff is amazing. Once again I'm impressed by this line. So I'm 2 for 2.

    Miss: leaving the terressentials mud wash in hair and scalp for over 4 hours. My scalp is so tight and dry. Hasn't felt like this in a long long time. I hope this doesn't last too long.

    Hit: George's 100% Aloe Vera which requires no refrigeration. Yes!!
    Miss: KMF Upper Management Gel, KMF Whenever Conditioner.

    Gel has awesome ingredients, but not enough hold for me. Conditioner makes a good co-wash, but not very moisturizing. Again, awesome ingredients. Won't purchase again.
    Hair Type: 4a/b dense, fine, coily hair. Natural 13 years.

    Staples: Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil S & C, aloe vera, almond oil mix, black soap shampoo and bentonite clay.

    Hits: Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Moisturizer - Moisturized fluffy soft hair & ends, no glycerin ..yaaas! Def Staple.

    Bobeam Shea Moisturizer: Nice simple butter blend, super duper creamy.. a great affordable butter for those who want to use butters but dont know how/care to mix their own.

    Ade Vegan Hair Essentials Husky Hair Butter (Vanilla Bean) - I usually dont buy butter blends, since I can make a pretty decent one. This one has real vanilla beans in it, which is why I bought it but they serve no purpose lol. Overall the butter is NICE, came melted.. so I put it in the fridge to set up then took it out. It remained creamy and whipped, and was still FULL (unlike my Pura Body Naturals that settled & was less than half full -_-).. its light and not greasy, just an overall good butter!

    Miss: The price of the husky hair butter doubling since I bought it, was $8 now its $15.. with shipping thatll be $20 for 4oz.. no maam! I will utilize what I have but surely wont rebuy, sorry!

    Homemade leave-in: mixed Tussle Me Softly conditioner, with aloe vera gel and a bit of jojoba oil w/ water. twisted, soft moisturized hair.

    Garnier Fructis Deep Treatment: hair was a bit parched, but this gave my hair the necessary moisture back!



    Non Hair Hit
    Homemade Shea Butter: great for my skin, just experimenting with a few other oils in the blend.

    Ambrosia Hair Caramel Souffle Styling Creme: well wouldn't you know that the new one that the owner sent me began to separate. Well I kept on using this as a body butter and even gave some to an associate to use and she loved it. great lil body butter. It sits on your skin a bit tho.

    Neutral
    Ambrosia Hair Caramel Souffle Styling Creme: don't care for the separation.

    Doo Gro Anti Itch Oil: This is a lightweight oil, that does keep the itchies at bay, but it's missing something.

    Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In: Great as a refresher. not great as a leave-in

    St.Ives Coconut Butter Body Wash: used this as as a shampoo out of frustration. not bad.

    Miss
    Head & Shoulders Shampoo: finding out that the love of my life had dimethicone. noooo say it ain't so. Quick I need a good sulfate shampoo!

    Hits: qhemet biologics olive and honey balm and alma and olive heavy cream. These will be my staple stylers from now on. My hair is so moisturize and shiny. The gel isn't bad but I had to use Ecco along with it to tame these locs.

    Miss: coco tree detangling ghee and moringa ghee on wet hair. I don't see the big deal about these two products. On Sunday I used it after washing and conditioning and I had to combine these two products to get some kind of moisture. I am remembering now that these leave ins don't have glycerine. Probably that's why they didn't work. Will not repurchase.

    Hits: After having a super frizzy result after a henna treatment, I thought I needed moisture which did nothing for my hair, but I tried Curl Junkie Strengthening Conditioner and on top of that I put Curl Junkie Curl Fix... (both have protein with the later having quite a bit of protein) AWESOME results, my curls just bounced back.

    Hit: Great twist out... used BoBeam Cocoa Rhassoul bar, then followed with a DC of Bask Cacao Bark/Yam Nectar w/PBN Chocolate Hair Smoothie and olive oil; after that I used Shea Moisture C&H Curl Milk, PBN Cupcuacu Butter, and finally Donna Marie Dream Curling Creme.. Soft shiny twists almost made me not want to take them out, but that led to one of my best twistouts yet.. :)

    Hit: finally getting through some of my stash! :)

    I was really just messing with you. I just took it as a sign that my product junkie (hair products/makeup/perfume/accessories) self didn't need any more "stuff". I'll live...but I will be checking online to see if it gets restocked. If not, there's always Sephora or Ulta.

    Ok I know that I will not repurchase coco tree detangling or the moringa ghee, but I think that they both work better on dry hair has a moisturizer. So it is a maybe. Will continue to try.

    Hit: Oyin Handmade Hair Dew: delicious scent now! Blame my stuffy nose and the beautiful fall weather! lol

    Oyin Handmade Burnt Sugar Pomade: can't believe this thing is 13.00 dollars now. But this is an excellent sealant. A bit grainy in the jar so you have to emulsify this really well before using it.

    MEGA MISS: Denorex 2 in 1, Extra Strength and Conditioning - OMG, my hair felt like the desert mid week and I had to wash and condition last night, it was out of control. I am a firm believer in stipping the scalp and hair clean every week, but that business was beyond. My hair is truly not happy with me attttt alll. I twisted with heaps of JC NnS and will wear a beanie for the rest of the week to avoid manipulation.

    My neighbor gave me some Denorex shampoo back when I was relaxed because I told her I had dandruff. She said I could have it and no need to bring it back. I found out why. I was great on dandruff but it dried the hell out of my hair. I tossed that stuff.
