Recent Buys

The product junkie in me has reared its head again. I think this time it was a bit tame . . .  I picked these up at the Le Revitalize Rendezvous event and Next Cash and Carry.

Hemp Seed Oil – I got this for the ceramides. I noticed when I used Wheat Germ oil as a pre-poo my hair felt smoother. Recently, I’ve increased the amount of grape seed oil that I use and my ends are thanking me. No splits so far. My issue with grape seed oil is that it’s too light for me to pre-poo with so I got some hemp seed oil.

Tea Tree and Eucalyptus Essential Oils – On my last wash day post, I noticed some dandruff near the front of my hair. I want to use these with a carrier oil for a scalp massage before I pre-poo. I read that they help with dandruff issues.

I got their Healthy Hair Kit which is chock full of lovely hair goodies. It has Henna, Hibiscus and Fenugreek powders, ManShanu (Ghee) and Neem oil. I really want to try a henna treatment soon. I’m also excited to try manshanu. There is also a spray bottle and bobby pins. It comes with instructions and a list of benefits for the various products in the kit.

Shea butter – I got this from Next Cash & Carry. I actually got one for my sister before my visit and was impressed with it. When I was serving, I used to get it at the local market but the consistency would vary each time I got it. Once, I saw some black film when I was preparing it for a cream. 😐 This one has a more uniform consistency. We’ll see how it turns out.

I don’t think I did too much damage. 🙂
