It doesn’t look like much but two strand twists are honestly the way forward for me.
I’ve tried a lot of products over the years, so many in fact, that I look at curly hair websites and think, “Ooo, it might be nice to give that a try!” to something I’ve already tried, dismissed and forgotten about! I guess that’s where being a product junkie gets you…but it also gets me a sh*t load of content for reviews so here we are again!
You will have noticed I started telling you about this Clay Wash Day last week (head on back over if you’d like) but here’s the best bit…what it looked like after all the clays were washed out. It’s my favourite bit anyway!
I only use Bentonite Clay every 4 weeks to cleanse my hair but I genuinely look forward to that particular wash day. If Bentonite was a person, I would gush about them all day. I was stocking up on clay and I was trying to make an order up to a certain amount on the Anita Grant website and so I decided to try out the Rhassoul Deep Condish and Double Cream as well. And when it was time to bring the Bentonite out again, I thought, why not pair it with the Rhassoul and see what happens?
I did my first one of these posts in May 2017. Wow! I’ve been at this hair journey and blogging thing for a while. In the time since that last post, I’ve found more and more curly, coily and kinky sources of inspiration for me and my kids.
I’m trying my best to stop being a product junkie. I’ve spent a long time wearing this title as a badge of honour. Like I’m really doing something other than bankrupting myself.
Damn! That picture is really saying a thousand words with those thousand products! Okay, so there aren’t a thousand products there but I dread to think how much money is just lying on my bed! Hi, my name is Lee and I am a product junkie. But I don’t want to be anymore.
Four whole years. Four whole years. FOUR WHOLE YEARS. I could keep saying it but it still wouldn’t sound real. I’ve committed to something for four whole years. And I’m still enjoying it (on the most part). And I’m finding success (even though I’ve redefined what that is a few times). But whew, four whole years. Type 4 hair is no joke!
If you’re one of those TL;DR people, I love this brush and I love this conditioner. But if you’re not, sorry for the spoilers but please do read on to find out more about how MUCH I love Felicia Leatherwood’s Detangler Brush and the Maui Moisture Agave Conditioner for Chemically Damaged Hair.
Looking after your natural or curly, kinky, coarse hair can feel like a chore. Sometimes it can feel like a thankless task. Results can be slow. Products may not work. Twist outs may fail. But if you stick to a routine and persevere, you’ll hit your goals. That’s what they say…
