The list author says: "Hi there. I have been fully natural for a little over one month after transitioning from relaxed hair for ten months. Here are some products that I have come to love along the way, and others that I like but will probably not repurchase. More to be added as my product junkie-ism continues to spiral out of control ;-D. If you find this list helpful, please rate!"
"This book is a MUST HAVE. Teri LaFlesh really inspired me to see that all hair that is loved by it's owner is 'good hair'. I am a modified follower of the author's tightly curly method which recommends leaving in conditioners that are meant to be rinsed out (as long as they meet strict ingredient guidelines) and defining each kinky curl!"
"This shampoo does not contain harsh sodium lauryl sulfates. It does contain sodium laureth sulfates, however which are widely reported to be a milder cleansing agent than the lauryl variety. It does not give my hair that stripped feeling and since i follow the tightly curly method, my liter bottle is lasting forever!"
"This conditioner does not have as good detangling abilities as the other conditioners I have recommended, I use it in place of shampooing twice. I tried using it as a leave in, however it was too light and did not clump my tight curls as wells as I would have liked, but I sure smelled perddy!!!,"
"I have the 10oz size, but may look into using the liter bottle in the future. I use on my soaking wet hair that has already been detangled using another conditioner. I apply this leave in by finger combing in smallish section and then I shake shake shake allowing my curls to clump naturally. PERFECTO!"
"It would be misleading to list it alongside oils such as coconut, jojoba or even olive oil as it is mostly made of silicones which add a nice slip and shine to the hair. For the price I will probably not repurchase, but I used it throughout my transition and was satisfied with the shine and lovely smell of my hair."
"How did I survive so long without it??? For anyone whose hair needs to be protected at night, this is the pillowcase for you. It's washable and made of real silk, and for this price, why not get two?"
"I MUCH prefer the ingredients in the regular version of this product to the extra hold version. I will probably look for something more natural-hair-friendly for making my puffs in the future due to the mineral oil, but everyone must make their own choices about what they will use on their hair."
