Last year in April I bought my first Auntie Jackie’s product. For a while now I have seen their product been promoted by other lady’s and saw some great reviews. I have been looking for a new moisturizing conditioner that was available in a store and not expensive.
What got my attention was the title moisturizing & softening part and that is a reconstructive conditioner. I’m a sucker for a product that mentions the word moisturizing. But is it really moisturizing?? That is always the question.
I have been good with my shopping habits. I’m trying my best not to buy new hair products. Sometimes I even fight with myself – lol – Is there a cure for a product junkie. But last month I did some shopping and it was all about the OILS!!
First I had to buy a new relaxer. After 22 weeks it’s was time for the creamy crack. I switch back to the no-lye formula. I also bought some staple product
Rosewater 300 ml (Store Afro New Creations, €1,25) Almond Oil 300 ml (Store Afro New Creations, €3,95)
-a new oil to try out-
Sesame seed oil 250 ml (Store Afro New Creations, €2,99)
I also bought me some essential oils. There was a discount. I’m always down for a discount.
Tea Tree 30 ml (De Tuinen, €6,99 > €3,49)
Sweet Orange 30 ml (De Tuinen, €5,99 > €2,99)
Lemon 30 ml (De Tuinen, €5,99 > €2,99)
Rosemary 30 ml (De Tuinen, €5,99 > €2,99)
Moisture Moisture Moisture!!!! All the products that I bought are repurchasing. For about two month I have been looking for the Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter moisturizer. I was going crazy because every hair store was out. There was one shop owner (Store Afro New Creations) who was kind enough to order for me – happy dance -. I was so thankful because this moisturizer really saved my hair.
The other two products are my ‘light’ moisturizers.
In February I did some shopping and I tried some products out. In March I used Mizani Botanifying Conditioning Shampoo for my weekly wash.
What does the product say?
This gentle daily shampoo, formulated with an aromatic blend of botanicals, replenishing lost moisture to the hair. Hydrating Aloe Extracts binds moisture to the hair while Panthenol helps repair damage and strengthen against split ends. Leave hair hydrated and manageable.
Directions: Massage a generous amount into wet hair, lather and rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.
How does the product work?
The shampoo has a weird scent to it. I can’t really explain it. For someone who is sensitive, it can maybe turn you off. First time using this shampoo I was surprised. This shampoo really does what is says. With my first wash I had a owh snap reaction, because my hair felt stiff, but when I applied the shampoo for the second wash my hair felt soft and bouncy. For cleaning the hair one wash was enough.
