Vanilla Silk Cream Moisture Dream Conditioner. I really, really like this conditioner. I'd put off trying it for a while but I'm glad I eventually took the plunge. Check out my product review here.
KeraPRO Restorative Treatment. As long as the formula does not change, it's going to be a staple conditioner. Love this stuff! Check out my review here.
Organix Moroccan Argan Oil. I've predominately using this to oil my ends and occasionally seal in my moisturizers. Even after using this every day, it never weighed down my hair. Check out my product review here.
Sealing with an oil-based moisturizer. Namely HairitageHydration Coconut Mango Hair Moisturizer. You can find my review about it here.
Sprush. A $6 gem! My Sprush makes relaxer application much easier and faster. I don't have to worry as much about relaxer overlap when I'm applying my relaxer because I get so much control from the Sprush.
My Secura Hair Steamer. Steaming my deep conditioners has definitely helped me retain moisture longer and as a result experience less breakage.
ORS Edge Control. This stuff was insanely thick to me. It felt like it would take the strength of ten thousand men to scoop out enough to get my edges smooth. I liked in the beginning but my affections towards it quickly fizzled out. I don't like brushing my edges, I don't even own a brush, and it seems like I needed a brush to get it evenly spread in my hair and prevent the product from streaking. I know I could have purchased a brush, but I just didn't want to buy one. I threw my brush out years ago because brushing was cause my edges to thin, I was not about to buy another one.
Let's Jam Gel. It's in the same boat as the ORS Edge Control. Too thick. I first tested this product on 9 week post edges. The first day (on freshly wash, deep conditioned, and air dried hair) it worked great . . . the following days, not so much!
