Many of you asked about the products I’m currently using in my hair. Well…as promised, here’s a break-down of what I use as well as where I purchased the items from.
As I Am Coconut Cowash (cleanser) [purchased at Wal-Mart]
I wash my hair 1x a wk, unless my hair is in mini twists, it’s blown out, or I straightened it. Then, it’s every 2 weeks.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil [purchased at local beauty supply]
I transfer the oil in a dye applicator bottle [purchased at Sally’s Beauty Supply], so it’s easier to use. I oil my scalp and apply on my hair from roots to tips, to seal in the moisture from the water in my hair. FYI: I only oil my scalp on wash day.
Shea moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie (cream/moisturizer) [purchased at Walgreens]
I apply a generous amount of the cream in my hair from roots to ends. I only apply it on wash day, typically.
Olive Oil Eco Styler Gel [purchased at local beauty supply store]
I apply a generous amount of the gel from roots to ends. This really helps me to fight FRIZZ and achieve very defined styles, whether it be a wash-n-go or a twist out. As I’ve recently discovered, my twist outs come out SO much better when I start with a wash-n-go style.

When I’m deep conditioning, I still do the L.O.C. (liquid, oil, cream) method, but instead of the curl enhancing smoothie, I use the 10-in-1 hair masque by Shea Moisture. [purchased at Walgreens]
I’ve also used the masque by itself, after cleansing my hair. I allow it to sit for about 15 to 45 minutes and then I rinse with cool water.
Typically when I’m doing a blow out, I only apply the Nourishing+Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum to my hair, after cleansing it. I use one pump for each section. After my hair is done, I oil my scalp with my Jamaica Black Castor Oil. While my hair is stretched like this, I only use serums on it to prevent added shrinkage and to detangle it.
