Hi my name is Charlii and I am a product whore, junkie or whatever you want to call it. I LOVE HAIR PRODUCTS!!! So I had to put myself on a product line purchasing limit b/c there are just so many but I need to slow down and use up what I have or throw some stuff away so I can make room for new lovlies! I have tried so many different products, Shea Moisture, Cantu, RedKin, Curls, and Pureology, just to name a few.
When I first went natural Cantu's Leave-in Conditioner was a holy grail product for me but as my hair grew so did its preferred taste in products. How did I know my hair was out growing the Cantu leave-in? My hair was no longer feeling soft, it became hard to manage and my styles were not coming out the way they use to. This is what I mean when I said listening to your hair is a MAJOR KEY. Know when products are changing, noticing that your hair is changing, and know when its time to grade or switch up your products. I'm not saying you have to break the bank to have good looking hair but you want to love on and care for your strands so they will be happy and healthy.
Next I went for the Shea Moisture line and it also worked for a few but it too started to change and my hair was saying singing "no,no,no,no,no". I tried dang near every line Shea Moisture had to offer but it was all a no go, my hair was still left feeling, dry. That's how it ended up with all the products, I would deep condition, hot oil treat, and my hair would be alright for a minute but I found myself manipulating it entirely too much. Then I attended the best school ever, Youtube University, lol.
Pt. 3 My product finds on Youtube and how they saved my hair.
