Amazon Mini Hair Haul…

During 2015, I only used products that I knew and didn't bother to try new products.  I do have a couple of new product lines I want to try later on this year. I logged onto Amazon and the price was much better than in stores for the products below, so I jumped at the opportunity to buy them. I also picked up a new product which will help keep up the moisture levels in my hair.
Jamaican black castor oil has been a staple in my regimen from the start of my healthy hair journey.  I needed more flexi-rods since I gave away majority of my old ones to my mom.  I have heard bloggers rave about using glycerine to replenish moisture and since I couldn't find it in stores, I ordered it as well.



These are the ways I plan to continue as well as start implementing them into my regimen for this winter season.

Did you buy any new products recently?

  4. Nice picks Tomi! I read somewhere that glycerine also works counteractively in hot and dry climates, drawing out moisture from the hair to itself. Maybe that's why it didn't really work for me here in Kenya. Have you used it yet?

    1. Yes i think its the general role it plays. I added some of it to my moisturizing mix and no major changes yet but definitely after my relaxer i'll be using it as listed above.

  5. Great buys Tomes. I haven't used glycerine in so long! I used to love it for giving my usual moisturiser a boost x

  7. Amazon is really cool if you find a shop that stocks something you like cheaper....and having 100% pure glycerin is so cool .

  8. Try using castor oil as a prepoo as well. I used it as such in saturday. My hair is still soft and less fricton among my strands. It will be my prepoo oil mixed with olive oil for a while..coconut oil was not treating me well..my hair was not staying moisturized..i am now five weeks post with new growth starting to come in and it feels moisturized and soft.
    It was giving me too much shedding when i applied it straight from the bottle on to my scalp.

    1. I was thinking about diluting it with coconut oil for my scalp and I experience no flakes even though i only apply it once a week. It increases growth, so i'm not alarmed about the shedding. Its too expensive and too thick to be used as a prepoo, if not i would need to be replacing more regularly than i would like. I'm glad it works like that for you.

  9. I did mix it with grapeseed oil and i dont use large amounts. I put my hair in sections and apply ahout three drops per section. I dont do it like some persons where the hair is completely drenched. I go under the dryer after applying it with a homemade steam process. I live jamaica so the home for castor oil and get it at an affordable price

    1. I tried grapeseed oil in the past but wasn't very excited about it then. Maybe i need to revisit it. Aww man the prices there must be awesome. I'm not missing the sun, sand and sea yet.
