Use up the Stash: Update #1 (Mini Reviews Included)
African Pride Braid Spray (old formula): my staple for whenever I had twists or braids. I don't like the new ones with the yellow/green wrap on the bottles. Hated those.
Aura Cacia Apricot Kernel Oil: it's a nice light oil with a faint nutty sweet natural fragrance.
BASK Condensed Custard: great on the body. I didn't use it much on my hair. The lemon beignet fragrance is sooooo delightful. You just want to slather your body in it.
BASK YAM Nectar Intense Hair Nourisher: first impressions/mini review here.
Curl Me Crazy Handmade Never Go Dry Sweet Hair Jelly: full review here. This line was previously called Afrotique.
Hairveda Red Tea Line: these were just meh. Not special and not terrible. I won't be repurchasing. Red Tea Moisturizer reviewed here and here.
Hairveda Whipped Clouds: love this on my skin and hair. Mini review here.
Hairveda Whipped Creme Ends Hydration: love this! Instant softness and moisture for days. Full review coming soon!
Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In Conditioner: loved it when I first got it, very moisturizing and great fragrance options. Recently it's just not working for me. My bottles don't have the same ingredients lists, and the consistency isn't the same either.
Kiss My Face Upper Management Styling Gel: good ish! One of my favorite gels, but I only get 3-4 uses out of one bottle. The fragrance is grapefruit.
Kuza Naturals 100% Organic Shea Butter in Mango Tango: smooth creamy whipped shea. Loved it!
Marie Dean Twist & Loc Moisturizing Cream: full review here.
Naturalee Hair Care Hair & Body Butter: wasn't moisturizing for my hair or body, but it did give a nice shine to my legs. I won't be repurchasing.
Oyin Handmade Hair Dew: full review here.
Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie: I can't believe I haven't reviewed this! It's been a favorite for as long as I've been natural. It works for me as a moisturizer, leave-in, and styler.
Spiral Soulutions Deeply Decadent Moisturizing Treatment: not a fan; full review here.
StatusProfessional Care Hair Mask Nutritive: hated it! Induced a mini drought in my hair. I ended up using the rest for shaving.
Suave Naturals Conditioner: finished several bottles of this. I used it mainly to co-wash, or detangle before washing and occasionally as a leave-in. I stopped using it completely when I noticed how much buildup it was leaving.
Uncle Funky's Daughter Curly Magic Curl Stimulator: full review here.
