Hey Ya’ll! Every once in a while we have to give our hair some extra love. I have medium porosity hair and I don’t need to use protein based conditioners often. I use this DC protein pack every couple of months to help with dryness; I tend to have dryness in my crown area.
Coats the hair nicely
Good slip for detangling
I have been using this for a year and I really like my results. My hair responds positively to this deep conditioner. It’s more manageable, less frizzy, and it works great with my other products. Also I like the ingredients, there aren’t any red flags for me personally.
Hey Ya’ll! Long time huh? If you don’t know we had Hurricane Harvey come through Rockport, Houston and surrounding areas. Needless to say it was tough but we didn’t experience any damage to our home. Thank God! If you want to donate, here is a link to JJ Watts Relief Fund for Houston and surrounding areas.

Hey Y’all… Erica here! I usually do this style when the front of my hair does what it wants. It’s cute, simply and easy. I used Cantu Moisturizing Curl Activator to moisturize and olive oil to seal. To maintain this style I just two strand twist the back and tie it up with my satin scarf.
Hey Ya’ll! Everyone knows what shampoo and conditioner is right? There are so many shampoos and conditioners out there to meet your specific hair needs….Finding out which one ca be tricky.
Shampoo is a form of soap made to cleanse your scalp of all products and debris. Depending on your hair and the state that it is in (dry, dyed, etc.) there is a shampoo that can be used. Not all shampoos are created equal. Here are a few…
Clarifying Shampoo- helps to remove everything from the hair and scalp.
Sulfate Free Shampoo- does nor contain the detergent foaming agent Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. While it still cleanses it does not lather as much.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is found in soaps, toothpaste, etc. It has leaning and emulsifying properties and acts like soap. It has the ability to strip the hair of nutrients, but it is and irritant for those who have sensitive skin. Those who can benefit from sodium lauryl sulfate shampoo are those who suffer from dandruff and excessive sebum (oily scalp).
Moisturizing Shampoo- maintains moisture as it cleanses
Color-Safe Shampoo- cleanses while maintaining the color. Also it keeps the color from fading.
Conditioners are designed to replenish the hair with moisture and also provide treatment for the hair.
Deep Conditioning- use when moisture and protein is needed for the hair. It has a base of a heavy cream moisturizer.
Leave-In Conditioner- thinner in consistency and leaves a light layer on the hair
~Quick Tip~ For best results for your hair, use the shampoo and conditioner from the same brand. They are formulated to work together.
Hey Ya’ll it’s Lesley!! So for the past month I have been using Trader Joe’s hair products because I wanted to try something different, and it has paid off. I have been using the Tea Tree Tingle and the Nourish Spa Balanced Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
So let me tell you a few things about them…
Nourishing Spa Balanced Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner
Both are enriched with Organic Botanicals ( its infused with plant material that helps with healthy hair production)
Balanced shampoo to clean and protect
Helps with re-moisturizing dry, brittle hair ( conditioner)
Adds moisture and the hair is more manageable
Cruelty Free (No Animal Testing Contains no harmful sulfates)
Once I used this product my hair felt soft, my curls were defined, I hardly had any frizz, and it cut my detangling time in half. The conditioner does have a silicone in it, but that’s a good thing for me because I have high porosity and it helps retain the moisture in my hair.
Tea Tree Tingle
Contains Tea Tree Peppermint and Eucalyptus Botanicals
Suitable for all hair types
Contains no harmful Sulfates
Cleanses without stripping the hair too much
This product surprised me the most because I was using peppermint soap to clarify my hair and afterwards I would have to put so much moisture back in. It felt brittle when I was done, but after using the Tea Tree Tingle, it was soft and I still had life in my curls even though I clarified my hair.
These products have changed the way my hair has felt and the way my final styles look and it has been amazing. The price point for both of these products are affordable. You can purchase these items at you local Trade Joe’s or on Amazon in sets for under 20 dollars.
Hey Ya’ll!! It is very seldom that we like ( or in this case love) the same styling products. We have our own preferences when it come to styling our curls. The Cantu Coconut Curling Cream meets both of our needs. Here’s why…
Keeps hair moisturized
Lightweight and Creamy
Mixes well with our other products
Defines curls (twist outs and braid outs)
Frizz is at a minimum
Price is right ( $5.99)
This is our first product for Cantu and we are really interested in trying other things from them.
