A Possible Product Junkie in the Making

5 Apr

This natural hair thing has become quite a process.  I went from simply palm rolling my hair every two weeks with water and a little olive oil to co-washing, conditioning, and moisturizing every other day.  Hey – did I say styling ????  Sorry, I digress; but, to add insult to injury, there are SO MANY natural hair products available.   So my goal is to find those particular hair products that work for my hair.  In order to do this I will need to try several products until I find the “ONE”.  What does this mean for you, the reader?  It means I will provide a detailed product review of everything that I try – until I decide what works best for my hair.  Hopefully this  process will cure the potential product junkie in me as well as provide readers with some great information.

Here is a list of products I have tried with product reviews to come:

Meeting Karen!

1 Mar

Hello Readers:  Keep in mind that I no longer update this site, the new updated blog can be found at www.uneautrenaturelle.com.  Thank you!

I recently had a great conversation with Karen….that is Karen of Karen Body Beautiful.  I have been reading blog after blog about many different products and KBB kept coming up.  At first I had no idea what KBB stood for, but after yesterday I will never forget. 

Upon entering the store, my first impression was simply….WOW!  The store is right in the heart of Clinton Hill/Fort Greene Brooklyn….my once upon a time home town.  I was most disappointed in knowing that I once lived in the area but never stopped by for a visit.  The store is beautifully manicured and welcoming.  Karen and her family (met her husband and beautiful daughter) are extremely customer service oriented.  I felt right at home when explaining my “natural” situation to her. 

Let me explain, I have been natural for over five years….4.5 of those years was with locs.  I maintained my locs on my own with an occasional visit to the natural hair salon – De Lux.  All I ever put in my hair was handmade soap and water.  About 2 weeks ago I finished combing my locs out! Yes…they were combed out (this is a story for another blog post).  The thing is, for the past two weeks I have had no real idea about what to do with my hair.  It’s almost a culture shock to actually comb through my hair.

So I did what I read on the blogs – washed, conditioned, and deep conditioned my hair….the real question for me was: “What’s next?”  I knew that I only wanted to use the most natural of products in my hair.  I do not want to put products in my hair that I can’t pronounce – and this is how I ended up in Karen Body Beautiful on a gorgeous winter day – February 27, 2010.

After a wonderful conversation and Karen convincing me that I should memorialize my locs via blog, I purchased the following products:

  1. Karen Body Beautiful Hair Milk
  2. Karen Body Beautiful Hair Butter
  3. Luscious Locks Moisturizing Hair Mask

So, long story short, one hand was leaving the store with a bag of goodies, while the mind was working on creating a blog…..

Can’t wait to try the products!  ‘til then, thanks Karen!
