my newest discovery
i came across an article on the internet -I had originally started looking for information on jojoba oil because I'm very much into making my own skin creams and lotions and knew jojoba was good for the skin so I wanted to find out more details. Well as it turns out, anything good for the skin is most times just as good for the hair. I had some coconut oil in my "collection" for mixing up skin lotions and butters so I mixed up some jojoba and coconut oil and added it to my Nexxus Humectress conditioner before deep conditioning.I'm pleased to report that the results were really good. My hair felt really moisturized as I was roller setting and the tangles were not as minimal. The shedding I normally experience while combing through for the roller set was times reduced. I will definitely be trying this again to make sure it wasn't a fluke lol and depending on the results it'll probably be added as part of my regimen.I also tried a new product I picked up on sale last week. It's called Phyto Omnistyler by Nexxus. I was a bit skeptical about trying it but decided to give it a go. The consistency is similar to something I've tried before but I can for the life of me remember what. It's fairly light and glides on without any sticky feeling or buildup and is supposed to add definition and shine to styles without hardness. Will see how it turns out in about an hour when I get from under this dryer.Update:The Omnistyler worked well. Nice shine and bounce to the curls. Too bad I combed them out to do the saran wrap lol.
