Diary of a Nouveau Nappyhead Part V

Thursday, October 26, 2006

Since the "big chop" my collection of hair products has raised seriously.:) I'm still determining what's good and what works and what doesn't. Here's some of what I like so far:

Ampro Pro Styl Protein Stying Gel- "black gel" people but it defines my 4a curls without flaking. I put this on in the morning and hold works throughout the day.

Spray Bottle of Water-I pick up one of those styling bottles that holds liquids and put water in it and little olive oil, so its good extra moisture.

Garnier Fructis Curl and Shine Leave In Conditioner-Recommended by AfroBella, it smell fruity and sweet but helps with the texture. I put this on soon after I wet my hair.

Oyin Whipped Pudding-At night before I wrap my hair in a scarf,I massage this great buttery cream into my scalp and hair.The whipped pudding is one of Oyin best products and definitely my favorite from their line.

These are some of my styling options so far.I still undecided about where to go when washing and conditioning. I'm trying to find the right formula. I like the concept of No Poo, outlined on Motown Girl's site. Or the next option is to use a Low Poo bar like Oyin's Grand Poo Bar that I ordered with my other Oyin stuff. Plus trying feel out what deep conditioner I really like. I love deep conditioning!

Super Rave:Sharon Bolton Scents...

On Monday, I received a beautifully packaged goodie box of Sharon Bolton Scents. Based out Santa Barbara,CA this phenomenal woman makes the most beautiful perfumes oils and body products:

Truth- I first received a sample of this from Product Girl, that prompted my nose for more. It's a mix of citrus, lemon-lime, exotic florals, and my favorite note, a soft musk. I bathed in the Truth Body Wash, smoothed on the yummy Truth Body Lotion and applied Truth Perfume Oil to my pulse points. My body was definitely ready for my adored black cashmere sweater after that!!! I felt so beautiful.

Soul- Soul reminds me of that sexy dress that you put on for a summer's night out. Its papaya, pineapple, coconut with special hint of musk had me wanting to sit on the porch with margaritas at hand!!

Luv- After I received that email from my special"friend" from the past the other day, I put this on. The past felt so good to remember with this great scent filling the air!Once again with the sensual base of soft musk with gardenia,Hawaiian white flowers, and vanilla, Ms. Bolton has created genius! For Real!!

Please...add one of these, maybe all three to your scent collection!! I'm speechless!
