I went to Lush last weekend and bought the H’Suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment for $16.95. I had henna’d my hair and left the H’Suan Wen Hua in my hair for about 2 hours and then rinsed it out. It does smell kinda funky (think baby throw up) but it left my hair moisturized and my curls looked great. It has its pros and cons though. Pro: Lush is just a hop and a skip away so no shipping costs. Con: The container of H’Suan Wen Hua is only good for one application, maybe 2 if I don’t add too much. This is something I wouldn’t mind splurging on if its just once a month though.

That Godiva shampoo bar might be just the non drying shampoo I’m looking for.

halelujah! thanx thanx thanx a million… im sayin this so excitedly and i havent even gone out to buy them yet…. i discovered ULTA beauty supply store today (while wandering ambitiously through downtown atlanta and its surrounding areas, desperately inquiring about job applications) it was the last stop into a place i had never seen of or heard about before that i prayed would deliver me some kinda opportunity at last… much to my surprise the awesomeness that awaited me was an immaculate, spacious, well organised emporium of beauty, hair, fragrance and cosmetic products…. they even had the ENTIRE DevaConcpets line, fully stocked… tis a pitty i only had bus fare change in my pocket to cling to for my ride home, or i would have starved and get stranded just for some goodies.

That, now this, is the ultimate image ureka! “i can see my halo”… soon enough, lol. i also came home to discover i scored my dream job interview next week… god works in mysterious ways when you remember to praise him! (listen to me eh, im not even normally religious, but this feels so powerful) i have to be be grateful, for your advice, for afrobella, for all the great things to come in my life— I AM READY to rock some fabulous ‘naptural’ curls

It sounds to me like the ph balance of your hair is outta wack. So If you’re looking for a good protein treatment you might want to try Aphogee. Not very expensive and you can pick it up at any beauty supply store. I’ve even purchased the one use pack that comes with the protein treatment, shampoo and conditioner. Then there is always henna or cassia. Which are great treatments for damaged hair.

And if you are searching for a good cheapo conditioner Hello Hydration is the best.

Don’t get me wrong I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ojon and Miss Jessie’s deep treatment conditioners but I wouldn’t sleep on Hello Hydration.

right now i have month old highlights and the chemical lift has altered my texture, dulled my shine and made the tresses uncharacteristically tangly… i kept hearing i should use a PROTEIN treatment to rebuild the shaft but are any of the above recommendations potent in that… miss jess/ojon/lush?

Could one of you lovely ladies advise a struggling, unemployed, first generation west-indian immigrant, college student spend her scarce US dollars most frugally?

The purpose of using shampoo for you is obvious, you’re trying to get your scalp clean. You should pre-poo however because as you wash your scalp, your hair is also been exposed to the cleaners in your shampoo. So, if you’re washing frequently, you should definitely coat your hair enough before. Pre-poo will accomplish that and definitely help you avoid stripping your hair while cleaning it.

I used to just do no-poo, or shampoo rarely, and use different conditioners, but i’ve been in this phase of twisting my hair and wearing that for about a week (using miss jessie’s products lol, dont throw stones) and then wearing a twist out for the second week, and because the product is thick, i feel like its necessary to shampoo my hair to get rid of build-up so i either use the miss jessie’s shampoo or paul mitchell green tea shampoo..
anyway thats the first part of my routine..

to pre-poo or not to pre-poo??
