Review: Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil

Hey Ya’ll! We have been using Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil line, these products are geared towards natural, chemically processed, color treated and heat styled hair. We decided to try the shampoo, leave-in and the treatment masque.

 JBCO Leave- In Conditioner:  The leave- in conditioner is amazing. It is light weight and it distributes throughout the hair evenly. We use it to detangle before our twist or braids. Our fingers/combs just glade right through with ease.

 

JBCO Shampoo: This shampoo has apple cider vinegar in it which we like because ACV is a mainstay in our hair routine. This shampoo is clarifying but it left our hair soft. All of the dirt, debris and product was gone and our hair and scalp looked and felt clean.

 

JBCO Treatment Masque: We love this! The consistency is thick and it coats the hair so well and a  little goes a long way.  Our hair tends to get dry and this helps combat that for us.

We honestly can’t say enough about these products… Shea Moisture did it again! Check out www.sheamoisture.com for more info! Have you tried JBCO from Shea Moisture? Let us know!

Much Love,

Product Junkie???

Happy New Year Ya’ll !!! I know we have been M.I.A. but we started school and we had to figure some things out. Now we are back!!! Alright so being natural it is pretty much a given that you might become a product junkie.  There are so many  products out there that you almost want to buy them all. So here are our five ways that have helped us to not be product junkies.

1. Get rid of products that you don’t use.

You know that shampoo and conditioner that you bought from Trader Joe’s two months ago. That you only used once. Yeah… that is taking up space and wasting your hard earned money. Giving products that you don’t use to family and friends is a good way to rid yourself of those products you don’t use. It’s a win –win, You free yourself and they don’t have to pay for it.

2. Pick one or two products out of a line

Most companies have several lines under their name. So instead of buying the whole line pick a shampoo and conditioner, styling product or a leave in. This way you can try new things and if you don’t like it you can refer to number one!

3. Use products until the end.

I (Erica) am guilty of this.  I will have a product that is halfway full and I will go and buy another one. Especially if it’s on sale! But I don’t use certain products up quickly so it is unnecessary for me to buy the same product again.  Just use what you have until you are scraping the container.

4.Dedicate a section for your products

This will help keep the products to a minimum. Instead of a whole shelf or a whole cabinet, use half of the shelf or get a cute bin to house the products. This way only a certain amount of products can fit in that space and nothing more.

5. Stick to products that work

Lesley and I know that Shea Moisture works for us. If we want to branch out, we do that within Shea Moisture. This keeps us from buying products that potentially might not work and wasting money. If you want to try something new ask a friend, look at reviews or head to YouTube. See what other naturals are saying about that particular product.

When we first began our natural hair journey, we tried every product we could. But once we figured out what our hair loves and what it doesn’t like, we realized that having all those products hanging around was unnecessary.

Uhhh…The things us curly girls do for our tresses!!
