So far, so good on the natural hair front. :)
I whittled down my PJ list to make room for some tried and true products that never let me down:
Suave Tropical Coconut Conditioner
Moisture Spritz - aloe vera gel/glycerine/rosewater
Coconut/Vatika Oil mixed with Olive Oil (straight HEAVEN)
Castor Oil (for heavy duty sealing, or slicking flyaways)
For tough detangling Amla Oil is a lifesaver. It's an Indian oil that promotes healthy thick dark hair. It smells like straight petroleum but I don't mind b/c I rinse it out. Put some of this on dampened hair and let it go to work. Your hair will be super soft, and tangles with slide out. It rinses clean too.
My DC of choice is my Coconut Concoction (see 'products & experiments')
