My Product Stash





Not a product arsenal as such and I am by far no product junkie. I tend to finish a product before moving on to try a new one. Keeps it all neat and tidy and logical.

Curls Tea Tree Ecstacy
Phytospecific Relaxer
Curls Milkshake

I managed to stop all that breakage finally by doing a deep condition with protein:
2 x tablespoon castor oil
2 x squirts Organix Conditioner coconut oil
1 x squirt Joico K-Pak DPR
1 x Raw Egg
Mixed this up divided my hair into quarters and applied generously
I put on a plastic cap and wrapped in a towel for 2 hours while watched a film.
I think it was probably the castor oil that did the trick!

I wont trim my hair until I relax it next week and I will post pics of my new growth then with a nice trimmed straightened head of hair. I still refuse to use heat but I am so tempted especially as I have a wedding to go to next week.

I am working on a post called On a budget and in a rush, should be on by tomorrow.

This regime can be quite intense so I am trying to find things that people who arent that into the hair thing can use

Hi there Mahoganyhues,

After much searching I couldn't find anymore on ebay but
