One of the hardest things about growing hair is finding products that are right for you. Personally, I have been trying a lot of different things and here are my favourites (and not so faves) so far:
Home made egg treatment:
1 tablespoon mayo (heat)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Sometimes the best products are the simplest ones, and this treatment is a great example of that. If my hair could hug me for using this stuff, I imagine it would lol. Egg treatments leave my hair feeling soft and easy to comb and style. and I find them both gentle and effective. The best part is that most people have these products in their kitchen anyway so it doesn’t cost you a bomb and is about as natural as natural gets.
Natty Jojoba oil:
This is my new favourite product. It costs around £2.49 for 4oz, and is one of the best things I have discovered for my hair. I go through a bottle a month and have found that my hair responds really well to it. My hair stopped falling out almost instantly when I started using it daily, and I think the consistency is perfect because it isn’t too liquidy (yes, I make up words lol) but it isn’t too much like a hard gel either. I really love this product and will definitely keep using it.
Texture my hair easy comb:
I purchased this product recently and have only used it for a couple of days. It really does to what it says on the tin! It instantly made my hair softer and easier to comb through, and it smells GORGEOUS! At £2.99 a bottle, I honestly hope this product works well on my hair because I love it so much already lol . I am going to trial it for a month and then see what happens. This is essentially what I use on a daily basis.
Hawaiian Silky Argan oil:
Another product I am in love with! It instantly made my hair soft and manageable and another delicious smelling product. I have been reading about this oil for a while so was happy when the guy where I buy my
Products offered me a free sample. I use this as a sealant after a wash day (next post), and will probably go back and purchase it next week for the next wash day 🙂
But it hasn’t been happy sailing all along! Some products have left me with a less happy feeling lol and they are…..
Organic root stimulator hair repair
I bought this product on a whim and decided to give it a go. It was £1.99 for 4oz.
In all honesty, I am not a fan. It is really oily and seems like a product that just sits on your hair and doesn’t actually penetrate. As a competitive cheerleader, I come in close contact with people. and theres nothing worse that leaving oil stains on my stunt group all training session! Even the headrest on my car knows I used this product today because it’s soaked lol. Can’t even touch my hair at the moment for fear I will leave more stains on anything I touch lol. I will keep using it in smaller qualities and might dilute it with a of water, but I don’t anticipate I will be purchasing this product again unfortunately. In fact, I think I will be avoiding all organic root stimulator products from now on.
I used to use their relaxer before transitioning and it never really straightened my hair. I used it because they said it was gentler than others, but looking back, it might have been the lesser of evils but I suppose a ‘gentle relaxer’ is a bit like saying a ‘gentle murderer’ lol. Sure its gentle….but im still dead…you know?
One product I did like was the liquid mousse that came in the pack. It was amazing to me at the time because it did what it was meant to do and even made my hair feel soft, but again, in hindsight, that was relaxed hair lol
I decided to try their wrap set mousse as I’ve never been a fan of hair gel. I thought this product would be alright because its quite light and I had liked the liqued version. Turns out , like many of their other products, this one dried my hair out as well. I’m on the fence about using it in small qualities now, and will let you know at the end of the month 🙂
Root stimulator hair mayonnaise
Before I noticed the link with these products and my hair lol, I gave this product a good try. Again, it dried out my hair and left it with a texture I didn’t recognize nor did I like very much! Think im going to stick to my tried and tested method of homemade egg mayo treatment.
Pro Sheen hot oil treatment
Yuck lol There are no words to fully describe how horrendous this product is on my hair. It dries it out instantly and the texture feels a lot like steel wool lol I can’t describe it but I gave it a shot twice and decided this wasn’t a product for me. Never again!
