Spring is in the Air!

Post by ShortNSassie on 18th March 2011, 1:17 am

Hey everyone spring is just around the corner, so let's dish about what new products we want to try or will be adding to our regimen for the spring/summer.

I just cut my perm ends off beginning of the month i have tried the kinky curly knot today and loved it so i will rotate between that and my giovanni direct leave in my sealant is usually a shea butter mix but this time around i will add mango butter to the mix and see how i like it , i plan on trying out shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie as a styler and the kinky curly clustard as a gel and to start diluting my black soap before i wash my hair nothing else comes to mind

@Queensheba most curlies will rotate in the lighter products for spring and summer and put away the heavy ones.

I'm trying to revisit wash-n-go's again, and I'll be adding more glycerin to the mix, and some CFC Gold.

To keep myself from going into MASSIVE project junkie mode, I'm thinking about mixing my shea moisture in with my mix of oils (that I made today and smells DELICIOUS Very Happy ) for when I attempt to style my hair and when I do wash n gos, along with sticking with my usual mix of my leave-in spritz, my oils spritz, and my spray bottle of water. The only thing I'll stop using is my shea butter/evoo/vanilla essential oil mix (I've already stopped using it...). I'm thinking about adding my oils mix to my leave-in conditioner spritz, along with maybe adding aloe vera gel and/or vegetable glycerin. Any ideas on that?

I'll probably start back adding vegetable glycerin and aloe vera gel to my spray bottle. I'm not sure if I want to give up my shea butter+vatika oil+vitamin oil mixture. My twists come out so moist with it. I'll up my coconut oil usuage - I heart that stuff!!!!

I don't really plan to do anything different. I'm still in the WnG stage.

I'll be going back and forth using Oyin's Honey Hemp conditioner and Yes to cucumbers conditioner as a leave in, and my shea mixture only on the ends.

I'm going to incorporate wash-n-gos into my regimen. Before this week, I never liked the way they looked. But I loaded my hair up with enough conditioner and gel to weigh it down, and it's working for the first time EVER! I'm big on swimming when it's warm out, so this will be my go-to style for the spring/summer. Texas is hot, y'all.

I'm trying my best to keep my pjism under control so I told myself that I wasn't going to try any new products until I finish using the ones I have. I'm about to run out of my morrocon oil spray so when that's done I plan on trying shea moisture oil spray. As far as styles I'm looking forward to wearing my hair out and doing away with protective styles. I plan on trying a bantu knot out next month, and most of the spring I'll probably do a lot of twist outs and braid outs.

well i did a w&g last week just cause i wanted to switch it up from my usual twistout (which was my winter routine) but i have to say i'd rather keep wearing twistouts only because i have major shrinkage with a w&g.

This will be my first spring/summer with natural hair so not so sure about my routine just yet for the spring/summer. I will probably do more wash and go's. I have been doing twist outs for the latter part of the winter. ( I had to learn a lot about protective styling).

It is officially spring in Dallas (we'll be in the 80s all week cheers ) I have put my Qhemet AOHC away and I'm now using Oyin Hair Dew as a moisturizer. I've also increased my cowashing.

The weather in NYC is still a bit crazy! It was nice for a couple of days but we're getting snow this week! When it was nice I made sure to DC twice a week because I've been wearing my hair loose. But now I think I'm going to do a protective style like braids or twists until the nyc gets it together lol
