So quite recently I reviewed a Shea Moisture conditioner (See that here), I said the results were pretty terrible. However, me being me and not wanting to waste my money by never using it again, I decided to start mixing conditioners to my liking. Over the months I have tried so many conditioners, they all had perks, but most were over taken by their flaws.
Okay so currently I’m based in the UK, meaning all of these are from local supermarkets, however I did try and make sure all the conditioners were sulfate and silicone free. They are all pretty cheap and easy to obtain, so they are most likely not targeted at my hair but this works for me.
So here are the conditioners I use;
- Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner w/ Silk Protein & Neem Oil – £10.99
- Herbal Essences Deep Moisture Hello Hydration – £4.97
- Alberto Balsam Coconut and Lychee For All Hair Types – £1.50
Once a month I use a drizzle of whatever shampoo I have on hand as well.
So I normally just wet my hair, I can do this easily by just laying back in the bath, however, I’m going to warn you about something to do with this. By leaning back to wet your hair, it could become too heavy to lift up again. If you have thick, long curly hair this isn’t ideal because getting up will either strain your neck or you’ll just get stuck.
After wetting my hair, I use about 6 pumps of the Shea Moisture, a blob of Herbal Essences and then cover the area with Alberto Balsam. I mix this then run it through my hair. Making sure I’m hitting the dry areas. If my hair seems a little dirty, I’ll use a pinch of shampoo.
Then I just rinse out my hair, add my coconut oil then detangle!
That’s pretty much all I do, overall mixing works for me and I would recommend it!
Okay on a second note, I know I haven’t been posting when I used to daily, I mean I would apologies but I cannot stop being busy.
