2010 is winding down and yesterday I got my hair straightened for the new year. Woo-hoo!
Despite the fact that people tend to think my hair is fake or assume I got a relaxer and start scolding me for it, I enjoy rocking straight hair occasionally because it’s a nice change of pace. But when I don’t have my curly coif I miss walking umbrella-free in light rain and most of all I miss playing around with products.
Avid readers might remember that this summer I decided to try out several different natural hair care products and write reviews of them. Well, I got hooked. Now I’m always looking for new products to try and I tend to change my regimen each month. This makes answering the question, “What do you use on your hair?” a bit difficult to answer because I could go on for an hour. Sometimes I use Kinky Curly Curling Custard. Other times I use Hair Milk Lite by Carol’s Daughter. I’m also a fan of the Leave-In Conditioner by Mixed Chicks. When I’m broke and need to opt for drug store brands I buy Garnier Fructis Anti-Humidity Smoothing Milk or Leave-In Conditioner.
Some folks may say it’s silly to keep trying different products, that once you find something that works you should just stick with it. But I disagree. We product junkies are at an advantage. If you swear by only one smoothing milk what will you do if that product is discontinued or if you use your last dollop of leave-in while you’re out of town and can’t get your hands on a new bottle? We product junkies never have that problem. If Whole Foods is out of Kinky Custard I can run to Sephora and grab some Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk. Looks like I finally have an addiction that’s actually good for me.
I’m really eager to try a product by Miss Jessie’s but they are so expensive I can’t do too much experimenting. So any readers who are curly girls and have had success with this line, please send me some recommendations.
