Use up the Stash: Update #2 (Mini Reviews Included)

Here's another installment of "Use up the Stash": I'm making progress, slowly but surely!

Afroveda Curl Define: it's ok; the hold isn't impressive, but it's moisturizing. Not a repurchase.

Crece Pelo Natural Phytotherapeutic Treatment:
love this stuff! The one without the water-soluble cone though. The cone-free version is thicker and intensely moisturizing; the one with cones, not so much.

Curl Junkie Smoothing Lotion:
this used to work really well for me, then I moved and it became a joke! It's too light, too much glycerin, and not enough slip. It's better when applied on dry hair, but it just doesn't provide enough moisture for me.

Deva Curl No-Poo:
I need more of this asap! It's what a cleansing conditioner should be. Gently cleanses and moisturizes all in one!

Eco Styler Argan: the hold isn't as strong as olive. I've used it for wash and go's and my edges and wasn't overly thrilled with the results for either.

Eco Styler Olive: good for smoothing edges, slicking down buns and puffs. I could never use it for a wash and go. The hold is too strong!

Elucence Moisture Balancing Conditioner:
it's similar to Giovanni Direct Weightless Leave-In. Very moisturizing. I use it as a rinse-out and leave-in. It does foam, so you have to be light-handed.

Hairveda Sitrinillah Deep Conditioner:
this once was impressive, but not so much anymore. I used it next to Crece Pelo, and realized this was just mediocre.

Oils of Aloha Kukui Oil: it's just ok. I've used better oils and butters on my skin and hair. Not a repurchase.

Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Instant Recovery Mask: Instant recovery? Not really. It's an ok product, but didn't wow me. Some slip, but not the best. Not a repurchase.

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk: full review here.
