Favorite products of the moment: March

Hey gals, it's once again time to talk about my current love affairs with my products. I lied when I said I could be monogamous with them, they're all so unique and useful. Why should a girl have to stick with just one?

Hair Products
  • DevaCurl & DevaCare No-Poo: That's right, I still love it, and I still use it almost daily. On days my hair is feeling a little dry, I'll grab the DevaCare. If my hair feels fine, I grab the DevaCurl. I cannot say enough about how much I love this stuff, it's moisturizing on it's own, so most of the time I don't need a rinse-out conditioner.
  • Jessicurl Too Shea!! Conditioner: This is an amazing conditioner, it's rich and creamy. It provides immediate slip and moisture. I buy it in the Island Fantasy scent, and it's like heaven in my shower. It's packs enough punch to be used as a deep treatment, but it's actually a rinse-out. L-O-V-E
  • Tigi Oatmeal & Honey Conditioner: I have porous hair, and it loves protein. This is a great rinse-out to give your hair a hit of protein when you need it. It's rich and smells yummy. I'll review it in-depth soon!
  • Volumax Styling Glaze: This has a great light to medium hold, makes my hair shiny and keeps the frizz at bay. I will also be reviewing this soon!
  • Kinky-Curly Curling Custard: Another hardcore love affair, this is awesome. I love that it's a natural product, it smells delicious, and it works wonders on my locks. This is another product that I just cannot say enough about, you have to try it for yourself. I know it seems pricey, but a little goes a long way and it lasts forever. I had an 8oz. tub for the better part of 6 months.
Skincare
  • Proactiv 3-Step System: I love this, I don't understand why I see such mixed reviews on it. I know it can be quite drying, but if you follow it with a good moisturizer you'll be fine. This has absolutely made my skin better in numerous ways: no pimples, my overall skin is smoother, my pores are smaller, and the list goes on...
  • Coconut Oil: This is a fantastic moisturizer. It makes my skin glow, it's dirt cheap, and it's easy to find. If you shop at Wal-Mart, it's next to the cooking oils, since it's also used for cooking with. Just make sure it says 100% pure coconut oil. This is also great at removing eye makeup, and it's a fantastic deep treatment for hair.

I am definitely going to have to tell my sister to try coconut oil as a deep treatment for her hair. She is always wanting some kind of hair treatment. Thanks for posting!

You can also mix some of your regular conditioner, coconut oil, and honey for an awesome deep treatment. :)
