  • laela

    Aussie Moist is perfect for my 4A coils (straw-stirrer size)

  • Teresa

    Silicon Mix from my native Dominican Republic is the best for detangling/conditioning. Your hair is soft, rich, and the smell is great. give it a try

    My 3c/4a curls love Yes To Cucumbers, Kinky Curly Knot Today and Yes To Carrots for detangling!! :)

  • babycakes

    To detangle my hair I use Qhemet cocoa tree detangling ghee, which works just fine..

  • Evie

    I love Aussie Moist, not only does it provide great slip for my 4c hair, it smells great and is easy on the wallet.

  • Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter conditioner or Aussie Moist make my detangling session a joy. Those conditioners are my boos!

  • I have been using V05 Moisture Milks (strawberries and cream). I just bought Herbal Essences Hello Hydration because I have heard so much about it. Anything that keeps the comb gliding I love.

  • Nicole Ramsey

    Hello Hydration works wonders on my hair. Once I put it in my hair in the shower, within a minute or two I can even comb it out with my fingers, and it feels soo soft.

  • Rasheda

    I enjoy using HE HH moisturizing poo & cond. It doesn’t leave my hair dry & brittle but makes it very soft & supple. While I’ve only been natural going on 9 mths, I transitioned for 4 mths prior to my BC. I’m new to this, ladies, but thank you soooo much for all of your product reviews. I can’t wait to try some of them out! Peace & Blessings!

  • It used to be Nivea Deep Daily Conditioner, but now I’m using Talijah Waajid Detangler.

    Depending on how long it’s been since I last detangled, I can use a whole bottle of product to detangle, so I can no longer afford to buy those more expensive detanglers (Biolage used to be my favorite until they changed the formula).

  • Raisa

    I just discovered Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Daily Treament conditioner and used it on my daughter’s hair last night. This conditioner is truly amazing, it left her hair soft, smooth, and moisturized as promise.

    I am alittle confused by some of the posts about greasing your scalp. I thought oil was produced in the scalp and you only needed to grease/moisturize your ends. Im just wondering?

    • Zee

      I believe it depends on the individual. My scalp produces ZERO natural oils or if it does it is such a scant amount that it is not detectable. Since I barely have any natural oils my scalp is ALWAYS dry. I need to keep it moisturized with oils.

      I think this is where the dividing line comes in where some people must wash their hair every day because their bodies produce so much oil vs those who’s body hardly produces any oils and they can go a long while without having to wash their hair.
