June 2018 Favourite Products

This month I’ve really been paying closer attention to the products I use on mine and my daughter’s hair. Other than making sure they are as healthy as I can make them, it’s also important that they are effective and produce results on our hair. My hair texture is very different to my girls so we can’t always use the same products. Miss E has a much coarser texture, with thick strands and high density, whilst Miss Dimples hair is finer and lower density. I sit somewhere in the middle. So here is a run down of our favourite products.

1. Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Twisting Butter – £17.49 (8oz)

This is my go to product when I’m either twisting Miss E’s hair or doing a Twist out on mine. It is an incredibly rich product so a little goes a long way. In fact it’s way too rich for Miss Dimples hair. It provides incredible moisture and softness with a light and flexible hold.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar – £9.27 (946ml)

I have started adding apple cider vinegar to my water spritz, particularly when detangling my hair. I have medium to high porosity hair so it helps flatten my hair cuticles to lock moisture in longer and whilst detangling reduces friction. I also use it as a final rinse for all of us as is restores the hair and scalp’s natural ph, has antibacterial and anti fungal properties and adds shine.

3. Jim & Henry Eight Leave-in Conditioner – £13.50 (180ml)

This conditioner has been a fantastic addition to my product arsenal. Despite only containing 8 ingredients its incredibly effective. It softens and moisturises my hair for days and its light texture makes is fantastic for the LOC or LCO method.

4. Funky Soap Butter Shampoo Bar – £4.20 (120g)

Miss Dimples had a recent flair up of dry scalp and whilst I attempted to figure out what the causes was I switched to using this shampoo bar on her hair. It is so rich and full of fantastic oils and butters yet still cleans her hair well. I bought it because I wanted to cut out the conditioning process in her wash routine and this shampoo bar allows me to do that. I follow up with an ACV rinse to remove any waxy residue and prevent the build-up of soap scum, which can be caused by using soap in hard water areas. I love this soap so much, I now use on both mine and Miss E’s hair too.

5. Equi Botanics Marula Oil Leave-in Conditioner – £30 (200ml)

Miss E’s hair adores this product, mostly because it’s incredible rich and concentrated. Packed full of some truly awesome ingredients like marula oil, baobab extract, slippery elm and horsetail, it’s a triple duty product. It works as the liquid, oil and cream step combined saving time and product. Whilst it doesn’t come cheap, it is definitely worth it as you get what you pay for.
