I'm sitting here and my hair is a hot tangly mess that I will be fixing tonight. I think my hair gremlins have been in there making fools of themselves. I'll be moisturizing and detangling when I get home.
I thought I'd post the links to my products and some new stuff I'm in love with.
First, I am a fool for multi use products. Top of my list for those is:TreeHut Almond&Honey shea butter.
I also have a jar of the coconut lime scent as well. I've had to wear a knit hat a lot this winter and this stuff has been a life saver. It's thick and heavy, moisturizes very well and smells nice. Also I can use it from hair to bum to feet and this is awesome. It can be kind of pricey so if you want a body butter to use look for one without mineral oil filler, a scent you like and for one of the first few ingredients to be whatever the base butter is. Check the sale section of your drugstore. Keep your eye on the fancy bath/body products. I got my Treehut from an outlet store. Keep in mind that when they change their packaging the price drops on the left overs.
You can also try a lotion if you want something lighter. Again check for mineral oil in it, and try it on a small section of your hair to see if you like how it turns out.
Another way I use this is on my ends when I baggy them at night. Works quite well.

And I buy these two or three at a time. Profectiv Breakfree.
If your hair craves both a light frequent protein and moisture this is an excellent product. It's not super thick, it has a nice scent and I find it works really well for bunning and has kept my hair from breaking. I love this stuff.
Next up coconut oil. Plain unrefined coconut oil. Multi Uses include, as a pre shampoo treatment, hot oil treatments, in your food, on rashes this shit clears up flaky dry skin (also random peeling, sore scalp) like WHOA. It's harder to use daily when it's cold but having it around for an oil treatment is great. For a non heated oil treatment, saturate your strands. Put a plastic cap on, go on about your day for a few hours, wash and deep condition and voila silky silky hotness. Dry hair will suck this stuff up and it is love. LOVE. Plus how can you not love something you can eat too? Spectrum Naturals - Coconut Oil Organic, 14 oz liquid
OH I need always need elastics that don't pull or break.
I am still using that giant bottle of tresemme for dry hair shampoo. I probably use three tablespoons or so per wash. Not much at all and it's lasting forever. For ease of use I put some in an empty Hot6 oil bottle I had.
I think that's about all. I'm relaxing my hair this weekend so I will put my length check pics up and announce my plan for the year.
Happy New Years peeps!
