As I was in London over the weekend I decided to stock up on some of my hair staples, I didn’t go mad this time. Those six weeks I spent with me hair really taught me a lot about what my hair needs. My friend that was with me that would normally have to rein me in the midst of hair product heaven was so shocked when I left with exactly what I needed. Growth people! The one thing that I have itched to try, and still sorta am, me is the Entwine Couture Exotique Butter Creme Hydrator but I picked it up and its like 25GBP for an 8oz! I was like yea, no I’m good thanks. So I restocked on some staples and picked a couple of new products to try out.
- Patene Truly Natural Hair Co-wash: I had no idea that Patene had a natural hair range so I was very curious to see what it was about. I checked the back to see what’s in it and from what I can see it is sulphate free but does have some alcohol in it. I’m still willing to give it a try as I have a protective style in (my private stock hair) that requires co-washing. Plus I didn’t want to waste my good conditioner on a weave even if it is 100% virgin hair!
- Aphogee Balancing Moisturizer: I have heard nothing but praise about the Aphogee product line and I’m very excited to try it out myself. I’ve heard miracle stories about their protein treatment but I know my hair does not respond well to too much protein so I decided to try their moisturizer instead as I still struggle a little bit with my moisture levels. From the looks of the ingredients it’s not an all natural product but as a treatment and something I will only use about once in 2 months I don’t mind too much 🙂
- Jamaican Black Castor Oil- I bought this because I’m running a bit low on my regular castor oil, I don’t think there’s a major difference between regular castor oil and JBCO apart from the colour, I might be wrong and if I am leave a comment below and let me know what the difference is 🙂
- Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioning Repair Cream- You guys must be sick of my singing the praises of this product by now so I won’t go on about it, I was running low and so I restocked. I also picked up the curling cream not that I’m curl definition crazy or anything but I’m curious to see how well it will moisturise my hair while styling.
- I am so sick of using stupid spray bottles that don’t work properly. I got two of these little bottles because I figured they’d be easy to travel with and it turns out they are! Plus they spray beautifully, your mix gets evenly distributed all over your hair, I love it!
- Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Invigorating Shampoo- Again, you guys know how much I love this shampoo! I’m a sucker for a fresh tingling scalp after washing. And this is completing irrelevant but I don’t care for this new design on the bottle, it used to have this really cute leaf drawing on the bottle now it has this weird sci-fi font going on. I was almost not going to pick it up because I thought it wasn’t natural until I read the name again.
So there was a Sleek make up stand I thought I could be brave and walk past without buying anything but turns out I can’t! And no, before you tsk tsk at me I didn’t do anything to crazy, although I did see this Stilla eyeshadow palette in M&S that I’m now dying slowly inside for not buying. Every time I close my eyes all I can see is the accidental swatch on my hand and just how pigmented and velvet like the colours were, I’m gutted I didn’t buy it! It might actually haunt me forever 😦
