My Favorite Low Budget Things: Hair Care

Lock it up. Get this; my favorite shampoo is a $0.97 bottle of Suave Naturals Refreshing Waterfall Mist. It is infused with watermint extract and vitamin E and has a magnificent smell. To condition my locks, I use Organic Root Stimulator’s Hair Mayonnaise. Organic Root Stimulator’s shea butter lotion provides just enough moisture for the scalp and hair without clogging pores like the oils do. The best thing about this product has to be the smell though. To twist, I avoid gunk like the waxes and opt for Organic Root Stimulator’s very light lock and twist gel.

    Let me first say I love your blog! Your hair is gorgeous. How long have you been growing your locks? I have shoulder length relaxed hair, but hope to one day have long beautiful locks like yours.

    Thanks Brklybeauty80! And, thanks for stopping by.

    I’ve had locks for about 7 years. I’ve cut it short, and I’m now growing it out for the second time.

    Now, I feel like I understand where you are now. I too had to transition from the relaxed do. The first phase is certainly the hardest. But, I’ve had no regrets!

    I have been lost underneath these medical school books, and sadly to say, my style has suffered :/

    Hey hey Mel! Glad you came up for air!

    And, let me just say that our conversations were certainly the springboard for this move into beauty.

    We have to catch up soon as we have many other dimensions of style to cover 🙂
