My hair product stash!

Hello there! I’m doing quite well, thanks for asking and my nail polish ‘fast’ is going very well, orange tint is gradually growing out yay! Plus the yarn wraps are looking better as they get older I think. I think I’ve got the most compliments from this protective styling.

The cool-odd thing about going natural is that your hair gets to have a birthday and probably a name, and yes mine’s got both, Mandy of February 7th 2013. So yeah, lets get back on track.

My hair-niversary was about a little over a week ago and normally I would have marked it with a tremendous amount of hair photos but since I’m protective styling, that’ll have to wait till I unravel the yarn wraps. So after a cleaning spree, I decided to take a picture of my hair product stash and make a post about it.

The thing is: prior to my big chop, my staple product was DAX pomade, horrible I know but I couldn’t possibly care less about my hair then.


However, my stash is quite healthy now! Although it may seem like a lot, I think it’s quite moderate! Some of these products I have been using for almost a year (no, I’m not miserly with my products but they do last), a handful I won off giveaways (thank you Sizzelle Store and Natural Nigerian). Some others at great prices off yours truly, Sizzelle, and the rest from local stores.

My hair product stash

From left to right: castor oil (one of my favorite oils); baking powder; my spritz bottle; Beautiful Textures tangle taming leave-in conditioner; Cantu shea butter leave-in repair cream, Queen Helene cholesterol conditioning creme, Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera gel; Lavender essential oil; Tropic Isle pimento hair growth oil; Aunt Jackie’s Curl La La, Natural Nigerian’s cocoa butter; my applicator bottle; another spritz bottle; Lily of the Desert aloe vera juice & coconut oil; Hair Trigger hair growth oil; a virtually empty bottle of JBCO which explains why it’s upside down; and my trusty black soap!!

From up to down: Amla & Multani Mitti powders which have both been opened and used for facials recently; Reetha, Bringraj, Brahmi & Shikaikai powders which I’m yet to use since I’ve had my yarn wraps for about 4 weeks.
All the basics are here: shampoo, clarifier in my baking soda; recent ayurvedic powders; moisturizers; a sealant; oils; deep conditioner and all. 🙂

Most importantly, when getting your stash together, please remember to stick to the basics.

Till next time!

  1. I need your hair regime! I cut my hair on June 23rd after a major heartbreak :(. Please, be kind enough to share your hair pics soon and thanks for sharing. Good day

    1. Hi Foye, sorry about your hair but the good news is, it’ll grow. Smile. When my regime is as simple as it can be, i wash when i feel my scalp needs some love with Dudu Osun and deep-condition after, a deep-condition could be created in your kitchen (eggs, regular mayo) if you don’t have a tub of deep-conditioner. Most times when you feel like your hair needs revival, it mostly just needs a good bout of deep conditioning, hot-oil treatment or baggying. I always use a leave-in conditioner when my hair is out, Cantu Repair Cream and seal with castor oil or a blend of oil. When i’m braiding or protective-styling, i make sure to spritz my hair with water+aloeverajuice+leave-in+oil and oil my scalp. Most important, you need to be patient with your hair. Will try and do a post of the progress of my hair. Thanks Foye!

Please leave a comment: it will really make my day!
