Moisture, Moisture, Moisture. I bought 2 huge jars of the Bee Mine Conditioner because of the great reveiws. This is one of the best, pricy but it is very deep moisturizing. I always used my steamer when I used this deep conditioner to make sure my hair benefited from the product goodnesss, to pentrated my hair shaft. My hair loves this stuff. My hair was never tangled, .ever weighed my hair down. This product is very rich and thick, a ittle goes a long way depending on your length. I will buy this product again...
Treatments -Shea Moisture - Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque
jtmonian 5/4/2013 1:49:00 PM
This Masque is not my favorite but it is awesome when I add olive oil and sit under my hair steamer. Yes it gets the job done and this would be the only way I can use it as a deep conditioner. For a leave in, I have to work it in while my hair is soaking wet and it works great. I rotate this product with a few others. I like that it comes in a plastic jar, I can spoon out what I need. I will repurchase this over and over.
Conditioner -Vidal Sassoon - Pro Series Moisture Lock
jtmonian 5/4/2013 4:41:00 AM
VIDAL SASSOON, HAS MADE A COME BACK..old school product....I bought this conditioner about a month ago at Target for about $5.00 I purchased 25.3 oz. This conditiner is amazing! It exceeded my expectations. It's not a super thick conditioner, but it's way thicker than Tresemme Naturals Conditioners, It's easy to distribute and it has excellent detangling properties, when I first applied the VS it went on like soft butter, this conditioner took to my hair very well, my eyes got huge with amazement and then came my smile. It rinses easily and after I've rinsed it from my hair, my hair had very soft ringlets, tangle free, and my hair retained moisture. I used the As I am Cowash to clean my hair first, the I used the Vidal Sassoon Moisture Lock, this conditioner had so much slip and it made my hair perfecly soft, no snags, no tangles. I would pick this conditioner over Aussie Moist and V05 for cowash routines. The smell of this conditioner is just "clean" a very soft fragrance, so if you are into fruity smells, this is not for you. After using the Vidal Sassoon for the first time, I decided to knock off for sure V05. I love this conditioner, even though it has Bis-amino-propyl Dimethicone, it doesn't bother me because I know how to get silcones off my hair and time to time my hair embraces "some" silcones,this is a staple now, I have decided to stop using Aussie Moist because it has the same silcone as Vidal and I rather use the Vidal Sassoon because this conditioner gives me more slip, more conditioned hair, helped sealed in moisture to quench my thristy 3c/4a low prosity hair to silky and soft ringlets, this conditioner is a rich hydrating formula for my dry kinky curls that did not weigh my hair down. All my products works best when my hair is wet, not damp "wet" because of low prosity, even with leave ins, Wet hair! I used the Shea Moisture Restorative as my leave in and I had success. The four products worked well together.. 1. As I am Cowash (I will not be using anymore) found something better 2. Vidal Sassoon 3. Shea moisture restorative leave in 4. Castor oil (emollient) ...... Final words, this product for me lived up to its description: Moisture, moisture, Moisture! This conditioner did not make my hair angry, and being that I'm the first Woc to reveiw this product, I'm glad to say that I blessed up on an awesome conditioner for my cowash routine today, not relying on other reveiws. Thank Vidal! I hope you stay in the game.
Conditioner -Shea Moisture - Organic Raw Shea Butter Restorative Condition

I just bought a new bottle of the Restorative today,, because I only have a half of cup left in my used bottle. Once I'm done rinsing out my final product I add this to my wet hair, the way I do my hair routine this gives me slip, softness, and shine. I love the way this product smells even days after it smells so wonderful I use this product as a leave in only, I seal with Castor oil and then Curl Enhancing Smoothie. What a perfect trio for my hair. I love, love love the Restorative Condition.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Dabur Vatika Hair Oil
jtmonian 3/1/2013 9:21:00 PM
I have four bottles of The vatika oil... so I'm not going to say I love VATIKA Oil. All I can say is Shea Moisture Resorative on damp hair + Vatika Oil + Curl Enhancing Smoothie. Makes the perfect 3c 4b hair pop. / * - * \
Hair -Shea Moisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
jtmonian 3/1/2013 8:59:00 PM
Let me start by saying, I have 3C/4B hair type. I am on my second jar rotating other creams making this a long kept gem. This is the greatest. I found out today this is the one that I will use daily. When I skip this product in my regemine my curls never look defined, smoothed, bouncy, and shiny. This what I do on wash day. I use the Shea moisture Retention Shampoo, once my hair shaft is lifted I deep condition with Bee Mine under my steamer for 1 hour, I them rinse in cold water, mix Roux prosity control in with Tresmemme naturals to close my cutilces. I apply Shea Moisture Conditioner to my hair while its damp, seal with Vatika Oil, and seal with Shea moisture Curl Ehancer Smoothie. These three are the best combos on my hair, makes my twist out so beautiful and my hair stays mosit for about three to four days, with no frizz. If I don't use curl enhancer smoothie my hair would be more dry then moisturized. I love the packaging because I can scoop out what I need, and when I get to the bottom of the jar I get ever bit out and into my hair. The price is reasonable since it is organic and lives up to its product description and gives my hair more than what I expected. I love this product and I'm glad its not overly priced... I can't wait till my next purchased.
Conditioner -TRESemme - Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner
jtmonian 2/18/2013 6:01:00 AM
This is one of the conditioners I use. Let me tell you something,this conditioner is my love thang, my baby daddy, nothing like this here. Co wash, deep conditioner, leave in, its just everything I really need. I love getting the sale on this product. This is how I use this on deep condition days.... when I'm don't feel lke using the Bee mine Deep moisturizing or the shea moisture purfication mask. I take about 1/2 cup of this love thang, drop 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of jojoba or any oil but I always use COCONUT UP IN this mix.Then I add pepermint, lavender, rosemary, and eucalyptus;about 3 drops each. Go under my steamer for thrity minutes. This a great conditioner. I use Amla, Shikakai, Brahmi Podwrs with TreSemme Naturals as well. This is very good stand alone product to just use only for cowashing no other ingredients are need. This product was made for my hair. This is what I use faithfully to clean my hair, this is a wonderful product. I love that it 's silicone free, has a nice smell with aloe vera and avocado and that other ingerdients works well with this product. I also love how it's not to thick nor to light. When I apply this to my natural hair I can just feel the ringlets and the moisture the clean feel from this product. I also use Vo5 moisture milk to cowash but that is just a back up just in case if I can't get my hands on my baby daddy. Then I will use Moisture milk. Don't get me wrong Moisture milk ain't no punk either, but it can't hold a candlestick to TreSemme~ Naturals silicone Free conditioner. Please never ever stop making this. Its perfect just the way it is. What I love about this conditioner also, you never have to be in a rush to wash it out. If you decide to cook dinner, take a nap, and wake up and run to the grocery store just remember its doing a beautiful thing until you can wash it out no harm... I went to sallys and purchased one pump for these bottles, it is so much easier to pump out the conditioner while in I'm in the shower. Once the product is finished and there's just a little left, I add water, shake it up real good and I apply that as a rinse, a leave in... something... I love just this product //(* - *)\\
Amla is great. I used it with Henna and Indigo mixed and it turned my grey hair to pretty brownish golden red, my natural hair color was a brown black, with light brownish tint in natural lighting, My hair loves Amla Powder. It conditions it and makes it very soft. I like to mix it with Brahmi Powder on deep condition days. I have different receipes that works for me. I use Skakaia powder only on cowash days. I use all of these powders as well with just water only with know other products on some routine days. These powders are helping my hair with strength, thickness and growth. I love using Skakaia to cowash with Tresmenne Naturals. My hair texture is 3C and 4A. These powders I purchased from Hesh. I bought my first 200 grams of Amla from Mehandi. Once opened I had to put each podwer in seperate plastic ziplock bags with labels and store them in the refrig, as the the powders has an expiration date of 2015. I love the India hair products. //(*-*)\\
Shampoo -Shea Moisture - Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
jtmonian 2/18/2013 3:59:00 AM
When I First used this shampoo I did not like it. My hair was dry, brittle, matted, tangled and angry and this product was to classy for the mess. I threw it in the closet, and began my hair journey on Sept 09,2012. After many deep conditioners, oil treatments, cowashing, LOC, triming ends, henna and amla treatments my hair changed for the better, and growing. Every wash day is soft, detangled, defined ringlets. After getting my hair in good condition, I start looking into clarifying shampoo online, I bumped into that " Organic SHEA Moisture Retention Shampoo" So I read the reveiws again, got excited because in my heart I knew I had an excellent product in my closet somewhere. I washed my hair in 6 twist with vatika oil because it's applied the night before. All I can say is "heaven"....."so buttery", and "tangle free". Even though this is not a clarifying shampoo it does it's job; Clean and moist ringlets. I have been using this shampoo since the end of December and it's wonderful. .. hands down, this shampoo will stay and survive among the greatest. I love this better than Aveda Shampure. I have high hopes for this shampo in the summer alternating with Kenra moisture shampoo which is also a beloved favorite since 1999. //(* - *)\\.........
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - As I Am - Leave-In Conditioner
jtmonian 11/2/2012 12:05:00 AM
This is very good leave in, excellant for the winter months. I use this for the LOC method. I just love this product because it has no protein. I currently use aphogge leave in, Roux and creame of nature argan oil leave in and they all have protein. This is my best friend for this winter....moisture.
I love Kenra Moisture Conditioner, it's a hair saver. It is true, Do Not Leave on too long, I follow instructions on this one, for a co wash I stick with Aubrey Honeysuckle. KENRA IS MY OLD SCHOOL LOVE, we go way back.....
Kenra Moisturizing Shampoo is excellent on my natural 4A hair. I have been using this product since 2000 it moisturizes, and cleans perfectly. The conditioner is even better, it gives a creamy soft lather after I'm done I spray Tui leave in conditioner and seal with olive oil or coconut oil and finally cream shea butter. This combination is awesome when retaining moisture. I alternate Aphogee green tea spray with Tui when I need protein.
I love this eyeshadow, it gives me a nice polish look along with, half n half with hodgepodge liner and boy bait or nymphette glosses. Perfect orangy, peach brown. Today I paired with soma silk and arena. I know for a fact I will hit pan.
Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
jtmonian 9/9/2012 7:03:00 PM
She's the badiest of them all. No smuging, no creasing, no fading. This is the only eye primer I use and my eyeshadow stays in place and last all day no matter how hot or humid it is. I wish it was in a tube or jar like container, this wand thing is a mess, other than that this a very good product.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit (Rococo)
jtmonian 9/9/2012 6:42:00 PM
Gold Deposit is one of my top favorites. Perfect for matte blushes like Melba. I wore this out to dinner and was complimented on how pretty it looked on my skin. It's gives high a golden sheen, makes your shin look wet. I apply this to high points on my face, this looks so pretty on me during summer, looks nice when I wear browns and nutural colors. I know I will have this for along time because you only need a little, besides Golden Deposit stays in competition with Golden Larait. This one is a winner and a keeper.
