A few weeks ago I hightailed it to new fav respite & home away from home, Tarjay, to canoodle with all the new hair goodies stockpiled in the recently revamped hair care aisles. It is currently the equivalent of MECCA. I lie not. For the 1st time, elbows and conversations were flying left and right as women vied for the newest, latest and best for their hair. The question now being, what do you choose?
I’m still shamelessly giddy over the amount of choices we have these days when it comes to choosing products for our hair, yet I still find myself in the same pool when it comes to figuring out what really works for my hair texture. I haven’t a clue who the current buyer of Target is for this particular market, but I’d reaaaalllly like to give them a well deserved pat on the back. For a little over a month I’ve been digging into a yummy Almond Jai Twisting Butter along with the sweet smelling Algae Deep Conditioner from Camille Rose Naturals.
1. Almond Jai Twisting Butter ($16.99, 8oz) Major win? Blended with Pumpkin Seed Oil, Honey, Marshmallow Root & Almond Milk – this is one of the few ‘butters’ great for all hair types and textures. Now, a wee bit goes a long way in keeping hair moisturized, particularly if you’re keen on wearing twists & braid-outs. I’ve been faithful to using the Jai to twist, then rock a mean twist-out for 3-4 days. Hair has been remarkably soft, frizz free and full of body.
2. Algae Deep Conditioner ($20, 8oz) Initially on the fence on this, FRO called my bluff after we rinsed, and hair felt soft & well conditioned. Short on slip (consistency is pretty darn thick!), you’ll want to apply, then leave on for 10 minutes before detangling. This will help with separating hair with ease. For added benefit, sit under a heating cap for 20 minutes, and once dry hair will be moisturized.
Best hair days of FRO’s life? Pretty much. I haven’t ventured out into new product land for some time, and stumbling on this gem has sort of reinvigorated my love. Camille Rose, created in 2009 by a mother of five, Janell Stephens keeps me encouraged that products made for us by us can have star quality and made readily available at stores like Target. I’ll be trying a few other items from the line and sharing with you guys as I go along, but the overall consensus is total love. Love for the ingredients and for it’s versatility (even my co-workers have hopped on the love train!)
Have you guys tried the line? Let me know your thoughts!
