Okay, on the natural haired journey you will come across many products. Some will work, and some won’t. Unfortunately, many ‘natural hair product lines’ make a fortune off of exploiting clueless Black women who use a product until they realize, ‘hell. this don’t even work!’
So right now I want us to talk moisturizers (and moisturizing techniques.) What works and what doesn’t? Of course we must recognize that works for one texture might not work for another. But, generally speaking, crap is crap and quality is quality.
I’ll go first:
I swear by Elasta QP mango butter.
It smells good, it defines my curl and the moisturizing lasts all day. In terms of moisturizing techniques, I spritz my hair with water and Care Free Curl Instant Moisturizer at night, wrap it in a scarf, then slap on the Elasta QP in the morning.
Can I be real and say, the only reason I use the Care Free Curl Instant Moisturizer is that somehow it ended up in my bathroom. It could be a leftover from college… I don’t specifically remember buying it. I guess it does the trick. I mean, my hair feels softer in the morning…
But anyways ladies (and gents, if you’re out there) drop your knowledge? What do you use? What don’t you use? Why?
