Favorite Products

Updated: Apr 18, 2022

This is the blog y'all have all been waiting for... my favorite hair products! While I don't think this blog is worth the hype because there's nothing special about the products I use, it seems like a lot of my friends have been excited about reading this one. (I do love when Youtubers make videos of their favorite products so I kinda empathize with the hype.)


Along with the product name, I will highlight the first few ingredients in my products and bold the beneficial ingredients that I mentioned in my Moisture Maintenance blog. Also scroll down to the bottom of the blog for a surprise... my friend Gentrix convinced me to do it and she edited the entire thing, so y'all can thank her!!


Pre-Poo


Homemade: Coconut & Olive Oil Mixture

  • I stir some olive oil into coconut oil to soften the coconut oil. No specific measurements, just combine until you like the consistency of the pre-poo.
