What My Hair Likes to Eat
My hair is truly complicated so I will try to explain it before we begin. First, you have to split my scalp into two parts, making an imaginary horizontal line. The top half of my scalp listens to me, and loves what I feed it. Although the bottom half is EVIL, waayyy too short, and practically dead to me, and has a mind of its own. Although its dead to me, I have to give it my best care.
The top of my head is a 3c type while the back is more of a 4a. I have products that they both love and products that only the 3c type loves, but nothing that 4a likes to eat…yet. I have been working on finding the right combination of products that they both love.
- Avlon Affirm MoisturRight- This product saved my hairs life. I currently use the Clarifying Shampoo, Nourishing Shampoo, and Nourishing Conditioner. You are very lucky if you happen to find this in a store because they are sold in hair salons and Online, and they are expensive. I suggest trying all THREE out for a while before you get all judge-y on the price. oH and let me say I have never seen my hair so healthy in my life before buying these three.
- CHI( Cationic Hydration Interlink)- Argan Oil plus Moringa Oil- Conditioner- When I started realizing how expensive the Avlon was, I wanted something that will do the trick just as much, but of course a lower cost. The 4a side of my head likes this, but it does not give it the same satisfaction as the Avlon product. The 3c hair does enjoy it btw. Though when I am looking to moisturize my hair I probably won’t look to using this personally, but if I want to get those defined curls back this is what I would use 100% of the time.
- Shea Moisture- Restorative Conditioner- When I am done washing my hair and I moisturize it, THIS is what I use. My 4a hair does not seem to slurp it up like 3c does, but what can I do? I don’t even know how to review this because this is an awesome product all around and if it makes my hair happy then I am happy.
I would also like to add that I try to do hair masks every two weeks and they consist of avocado, bananas and an assortment of oils… and sometimes Apple Cider Vinegar if I could put up with the smell for that day.
