My Product Wish List

The main thing I have decided to change about my regimen is being consistent. I'm horrible at this and my hair is showing the effects. As I mentioned before, my hair is dry and hard (very hard) to detangle unless I'm in the shower washing it. I've decided that I'm going to begin using a line of products vs. trying out a poo here, a condish there, another leave-in over here... ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHH.

I'm literally tired of doing that so I'm buckling down and recording my progress in a notebook and keeping a picture log of every month. The only way to be successful is to stop being lazy and take charge of the health of my hair.
So, here's my Wish List for 2010! I'll keep updating as I get each product. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've wanted to try these products for the longest! I opted not to last year but this time I'm jumping on it. Click here for a list of the ingredients & benefits used in the products.

This is a product that Reniece uses in her regimen and I definitely wanted to try this out as one of my moisturizers. I have a tendency to just go to bed without moisturizing & sealing (not to mention without a scarf..eeek!) which also sets me back as well.

Unrefined Shea Butter

Unrefined shea butter has become a staple in many regimens. Savanna Trading fairly trades with small scale producers and Women's Cooperatives across several rural communities to bring customers quality, 100% natural and authentic products.It's hard making this stuff! I think that I will be using this more on my skin than hair though. It depends.

This will definitely be incorporated into my daughter's regimen. I'll also be including some pics of her hair and progress on here as well! This is a great way to keep your hair moisturized and I definitely want to increase the moisture in her hair.

So, this concludes my list. I told you all that I was keeping it simple!!! I'm not spending a bunch of money on products that I'm not using or have the potential not to use or like. I'm taking it slow.

I'm definitely curious to see how the Hydratherma Naturals turns out. I've been curious about that product line myself!

Charmaine, Body Magic Rep said...

Yes...I can't wait! She has so many rave reviews about her product line.

Unfortunately, Charmaine, I cannot give a rave review. I suggest you purchase the $25 sample pack.
Here's the link:
HN products had been on my wishlist for 1+yrs and the formula was changed to a more commercial formula.
Anyway, I found that I wasn't impressed with the clarifying poo and the moisture-boosting poo stripped all of the moisture out of my hair as soon as I used it. I threw it away after the first use. I found the Follicle Invigorator to be useless.I wasn't happy with the Moisture-Boosting DC, but the Amino Plus-Protein DC is awesome. I have yet to try the mositurizer and the oil, but I hear they are really good. I have the VITAPOINTE in my pj stash and I am looking forward to it. Pretty nice wishlist.

Thanks LaQT...I will definitely take that into consideration. Matter of fact..I'm going to some hair boards and see if I can find out some more info. I may not have dug as deep as I thought!

I hate when products turn commercial. The fact that they are "homemade" is what makes it special. I don't mind paying money for good products but not if there just as good as the other boo-boo products in the stores.

I love, love, love Jane Carter's Nourish & Shine... did I say LOVE?

It literally melts in your hands and makes your hair feel nice.

Currently my hair is in twists, which is the only reason why I haven't run out of that product yet.

And did I read correctly that you're going natural? I've been away from the hair blog scene so I have a lot of catching up to do!

Charmaine, Body Magic Rep said...

Wow, Ms. S! I will definitely be getting that product soon! I've heard so many great reviews about it.

My daughter definitely needs it...her hair dries out so quickly! Yes I am going natural! I might as well BC with the way my relaxed ends are looking!
