Natural Hair Products for a Naturalista

Greetings to all my Naturalistas!

So for most of the year, I have been rocking my LM Tresses Hair. But I finally decided it was time to let me curls shine.


I always get questions about what product I use on my hair. Well today I am going to share. I purchased all of these products at Target. That’s where I get most of my hair product- mainly because I am a REDcard holder so I enjoy the 5% off every purchase. Also- I get $3 0ff coupons from the beauty box each month, that I can use on some of these brands/ products.

 

Mixed Chicks Shampoo

This is a first time purchase and use of Mixed Chicks Shampoo. I’ve watched a few natural beauty bloggers review it on there blogs and vlogs. I have washed my hair using this shampoo twice and I like it.

 

 

 

 

Cantu Shea Butter Dry Co-Wash

I use this Dry Co -Wash in between hair wash days. Every night (or every other night) I lightly wet my hair and 2-string twist it for the next day. That process requires using oils and curl creams. So by day four or five they is a lot of product in my hair. This product does a great job absorbing all the excess oil. It leaves my hair looking refreshed and curls looking fresh as wash day.

 

 

Curls Blissful Length Hair Growth Oil

This is my favorite. I use this every morning when I untwist my hair and every night when I retwist my hair. This is a naturalistas best friend.

 

 

 

 

Curls Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Mask

The key to poppin’ curls is a good deep conditioner. This reparative hair mask has been a great product to help recover my “leave-out” areas. After every wash I use this to deep condition my hair for 1 to 3 hours.

 

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist

This is the only product of this line I actually like. My experience with Shea Moisture product has never worked out in my favor. I find the products to be too heavy or greasy for my hair. But this mist for hold and shine is just right for my daily twist and retwist.

 

 

 

Mixed Chicks Leave in Conditioner and Deep Conditioner

I purchased the travel sized of the conditioner because I wanted to see how it made my hair feel after the wash process and how easy it would be to style and hold curls. I only used half of the travel size tube for one wash after washing out the deep conditioner. But I used all of the deep conditioner product- just because. After using both products my curls felt fluffier and looker bigger.

March Empties

 

Hello Gorgeous,

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to start my weekend. So I thought I’d leave you with some product reviews.

  1. Mint Julips Lip Scrub by Lush

The label says the flavor is mint chocolate, but I only taste the mint. I’ve been using this product for a while. I usually use it on Sunday nights before bed, too make sure my lips stay soft and kissable all week. I definitely recommend this product if you experience dry chapped lips often, and I would re-purchase this product.

  1. Charity Pot by Lush

This was my first time trying this product from lush. This was one on those products I was planning on purchasing but was talked into buying by a salesperson in the store. And I must say its and convenient beauty product. It comes in this little LUSH cup, that I keep on the bathroom sink for in the mornings and during the day. I absolutely recommend this product and I plan on getting another one during my next trip to LUSH.

  1. Oatifix Fresh Face Mask by Lush

Now, this is my favorite LUSH product. It’s a facial that blended with bananas, vanilla and ground almonds with oats. This facial is good for cooling and nourishing irritated skin. And it feels sooooo good on the skin, even washing it off feels amazing. And its only $8. It lasts a minute too. So I definitely recommend this product.

  1. Mary Kay Full-Coverage Foundation (color Bronze 504)

TBH, this was my first foundation ever. I started wearing this foundation back in High School when I was dancing and doing pageants. It matches my skin perfectly- mean like all year around too. Like my skin gets lighter in the winter and browner in the summer and its hard to use the same foundation all year round. But somehow this foundation balances with my skin tone all year round. And the smallest tube takes you a long way. I have this product in a tube but I don’t think they make them in tubes anymore. But I will be getting online to order me some more Full Coverage Foundation soon. I think this is the only Mary Kay product I would recommend to other, but I use it and love it sooo much.

  1. Black Tie Candle from Bath and Body Works

Now, this is my absolute favorite candle scent. It is a seasonal candle so I try to rank up on them so I have some to burn throughout the entire year. But this year, seems like this candle was sold out at every Bath and Body Works I went to. Before the winter season was out I ended up was two of the small trail size candles. Like I burn candles everyday so, of course I burned these two out in no time. So yall know I’m ready for Winter again so I can order my favorite candle.

  1. Cantu for Kids Curling Cream

Although this product is for kids hair, I really like using it on my over night curls. Its suppose to like define and tame fuzziness. So I apply it to my hair when I re- twirl it at night for frizz-less curls in the morning. If you are natural and looking for a really good curling cream for your hair, I would suggest you try this product. It might not work for everyone but it has def. been a savor for my hair.

  1. Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-in conditioner

Okay, when I purchased this product, I just knew it was going to help grow my hair and restore my damaged curl pattern. UH- NO! It didn’t. All it did was strip my hair even more. Like I was so disappointed in the product. I WILL NOT purchase it again. Don’t get me wrong, I love Shea Moisture product, but I will not be using this particular one any longer.

  1. Rimmel London Concealer (color light/med 335)

So, I used this product for highlighting my under eye area. And it gets the job done. It’s a really cheap concealer as well. I have not re-purchased it yet because I’m trying out some other brands of light concealers, but I would definitely recommend this one as a good drug store make up product. And I will eventually go back to this product.

  1. Cover Girl Lipstick, dulce de leche 225

Not for me at all! I only bought this product because it was marked down at a drug store. I thought it was a cute color. I didn’t really think about how it would look on me. And when I got home and put it on, I was like OH! No! take that off and never put it on again!

 

Well that’s it for this month’s empties, feel free to share with me some products you have tried lately that you would recommend to a girlie girl like me. Be sure to stop back by on Wednesday for a new post …
