Tunrie K.I.S.S (Keeping It So Simple)!

Hehehe!!! You know, you just gotta keep trying out new stuff till you finally hopefully get it right.. My ayurvedic phase was all about getting all those new amazing powders and trying them out. I must admit I enjoyed the herby vibe and I’m pretty sure my hair did too but recently (and I think it comes with the territory of getting more length), I have become more and more lax with my hair care regimen that I’m downsizing to the most important necessities while caring for my hair.

Yes, my inner mixologist will always come out to play: I find myself de-cluttering my hair product shelf more everyday. If a product gets 3 strikes, looool, no amount of pleading from the jury will keep it on the shelf. I’m ultimately on the hunt for the products that work and work well!!!

Currently, my stash is down to:

i. Sulfate Heads & Shoulders Shampoo Citrus Fresh for my dandruff (not to be used as often as normal but if required, I concentrate on my scalp and get the gunk out)

ii. Queen Helene’s Cholesterol Cream for light moisture deep conditioning (it has got like 2 strikes, if it doesn’t cooperate next time, someone will be getting a nice gift)

iii. Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Masque (packaging and everything was perfect but it has 1 strike, 2 more strikes and this baby’s out! LOL. I’m such a strict umpire…)

iv. Silk Elements MegaSilk Olive Moisturizing Treatment This ought to be a light protein deep conditioner (dc) but this baby never fails me. I didn’t like the smell at first but it’s growing on me now. Used it first as a protein dc and second as a substitute for maishanu (cow ghee) which I have been lusting after. In other words, I applied it on dry hair, covered it up with my cholesterol conditioning cap then shower cap and rinsed out kinda like I would a cleansing conditioner and boy, was my hair glad for the love 🙂


v. My oils: Hair Trigger Growth Elixir, Strong Roots Red Pimento Hair Growth Oil, Castor Oil, Palm Kernel Oil and Grapeseed oil (mostly for my skin)

vi. Cantu Leave-in Conditioner (which is now empty and I’m hoping to be adventurous and hunt for a better leave-in). Someone compared using this leave-in conditioner after using a Jessicurl conditioner to going back to using a Blackberry phone after using an iPhone for a long while. Metaphorically, blackberry phones may be good but there’s nothing wrong with upgrading to an android and subsequently to an iPhone or whatever. *wink wink* Anyways, I’ve got my eye on Kinky Curly Knot Today leave-in or Natural Nigerian leave-in conditioner. I’m not sure which way to go. Can you help?

vii. Rebirth by Jayla’s Whipped Shea Butter. I used up the CeCees Curls whipped shea butter I had and they’re both quite nice. CeCee’s has more playful fragrances and Rebirth is all mint and herb-ish. So choose your pick. I like ’em both.

So yeah, that’s my stash now… Tunrie is definitely keeping it simple.

LOL. P.S: Now’s the time to buy me frozen yoghurt and stuff, you may just get an amazing gift from me… 😀

    1. I also used to like Strong roots pimento oil but I noticed recently that when I applied it to my scalp, it made it burn like crazy. Maybe it was just a fluke but I’ll try it again and see. 🙂

  1. Interesting shelf you’ve got there. I’ve tried natural Nigerian leave in and found it a bit too oily for my liking. My hair’s relaxed anyway so it might work better on natural hair.

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