Hair Products and Routine for November 2015



I am a product junkie..........

Which means that I am always buying and trying out new hair products.  What I usually do, when I use up a hair product, I will go out and buy another product to try out to see how I like it.  So these are the products that I have been using for the last couple of months for my natural hair.

First up, let's discuss what I have been using for my hair wash routine:

I have been washing my hair every two weeks (to remove an build up) with the Creme of Nature "Argan Oil Sulfate-Free" Shampoo.  It leaves my hair soft but clean and doesn't feel like my hair has been stripped of moisture.  I follow up with that with the Herbal Essence "The Sleeker, The Butter" Conditioner.  I use this both as my conditioner and leave in conditioner since it really leaves my hair very soft and I can detangle my hair pretty smooth.  In between washing my hair with shampoo, I use the Pantene "Truly Natural" Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner to gently clean my hair.  I deep condition my hair every two weeks with the Shea Moisture "Strengthen, Grow, & Restore Treatment" masque (one of my October Favorites).  This is my holy grail product because this makes my hair so soft and I believe it helps keep my hair moisturized and strong.

Next up, Oils:

I use oil on my hair to help seal in moisture and to add shine to my hair.  I use the coconut oil on days after I wash and condition my hair due to it being so light and to seal in the leave in conditioner (I use the LOC method).  Throughout the week, I use the ElastaQP "Olive Oil & Mango Butter" Growth Oil (September Favorite) to oil my scalp and to use when I untwist my two strand twist.

Third, products that I use as moisturizers and stylers:

After I use oil to seal in the moisture on my wash days, I will use the Elasta "Olive Oil & Mango Butter" Moisturizer (Another September Favorite) to use to twist up my hair and for extra moisture.  I also use the Camille Rose Naturals "Almond Jai" Twisting Butter (Another October Favorite) and Eden BodyWorks "Coconut Shea" All-Natural Pudding Souffle (My Review) also to twist or braid up my hair:

Last hair products..........Gels:

I really don't use Gels a lot since I don't wear Wash n' Go's so I don't buy a lot of them.  The three that I own I use for 3 different reasons.  The Murray's "Loc-Lock" Gel I use for mini twist or twist that I'm going to wear for a couple of weeks to a month (To see my review on Murray's, please click HERE).  It keeps my hair from getting frizzy fast and has a great hold.  The Smooth N' Shine "Argan Power" gel is for when I wear my hair in an updo or a bun.  This product also keeps my hair from getting frizzy and doesn't leave my hair crunchy or hard:

The last product from the same company, the "Edge Smoothing Pomade", I use only for my edges.  This is strictly for edge control and fly aways.

For a bonus.....let me quickly talk about two products that I use for Heat Styling and Protection:

These two products I only use when I do any heat styling (flat iron, blow drying, and etc.).  I use the Tresemme Leave In Spray when I blow dry my hair and the IC Heat Protector Straightening Serum when I flat iron my hair (If you need tips on Straightening your Natural Hair, please click HERE):
