New Additions: AB's Product Haul

IMG_5134

Hey guys!

I know I said I was done buying products in this post, but since then, I have made new additions to my product stash. Some of them I was dashed, some I bought myself. I didn’t plan to but I ended up indulging. If MeeMee wasn’t the voice of reason, I would have overdone it. I think now I’m done done.

I will be supporting more Naija business this year, and I will also be scouting for hidden gems in my local supermarkets. Going through the hair product aisles and reading the ingredients, I rarely come out with anything but I’m thinking- they ALL can’t be so bad, so I hope to dabble in that too.

And before you call me a Product Junkie, please go see MeeMee’s stash!

Replacements:

Cantu Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream

Nothing But Intense Healing Mask

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Deep Treatment Purification Masque

Newbies

Olive Oil ORS Girls Gentle Cleansing Shampoo <- samples, was dashed. It says it’s specially formulated for Girls. LOL marketing tricks, na wa.

Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Hair Mask <- from MeeMee’s stash.

Tressemme Hair Spray <- also from Mee-Mee’s stash.

Wild Growth Hair Oil

Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey

L’Oreal Ever Sleek Sulfate Free Shampoo <- because I liked the Ever Crème shampoo, I want to see how this works.

Carol’s Daughter Chocolat Smoothing Blow Dry Cream *hint hint*

Bentonite Clay <- been so long since I did a mud wash

Plastic hair clamps <- loving these so much!

FullSizeRender

Perm rods

Emily Millionaire Cream <- from one of the places I buy braiding hair.

Nature’s Gentle Touch HerbalBlend trio: Shampoo, Conditioner & Cholesterol Deep Conditioning Treatment <- freebies I got from Nature’s Gentle Touch, talked about them in this post.

Not really hair buys, but still from the beauty store, I got Shea Moisture African Black Soap & Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Raw Shea Butter Soap. I’m using the Black Soap at the moment and it’s alright. It smells just like their African Black Soap masque. I’m going to use it one of these days to wash my hair sha.

Also, I ordered Haitian Black Castor Oil from Beautifully Nappy, it should arrive today. For my very organic sistas (like Dr Sandra NGND) who are all about the certified natural, silicone-free life  you should check the store out. She’s a Midas Naturals & Sheabutter Cottage distributor, delivering Nationwide & to Ghana.

P.S. The only products I got in Nigeria are the Emily Millionaire Cream, the Haitian Castor Oil & the trio from Nature’s Gentle Touch.

I need a protein treatment, & am thinking about getting the ApHogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor. I remember this saved me during a period of scary breakage in my relaxed days. What products do you recommend? Please help me! 🙂

What have you bought lately? Have you tried any of the products I got? How were (or are) they for you?

Till next post!

Love,

AB,
