Carol's Daughter Coco Crème Curl Quenching Conditioner

Nope, you’re not seeing double. This rinse-out conditioner is from the same line as the deep conditioner I just mentioned. Since I liked the deep conditioner so much I decided to try the rinse-out conditioner and it’s also good.

I’ve used it as a pre-poo by mixing it with some natural oils and also just as a regular rinse-out conditioner before I deep condition.

Keracare Humecto Creme Conditioner

Keracare products are like holy grail when it comes to relaxed hair, I had no idea how popular this brand was. I’ve just discovered that and so I haven’t started using some of the more popular products like this conditioner.

It claims to help “correct and prevent moisture loss due to exposure to chemicals and thermal styling appliances.” It also claims to be pH balanced and great for dry, brittle hair.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioner

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly deep conditioner that works quickly, then I’d recommend the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioner. It does a good job of adding moisture to the hair and you only need to leave it on for 3 minutes. So it’s perfect for those times you don’t have or want to spend a lot of time washing your hair.

I’ve been using their leave-in conditioner for a little while now and it really helped to save my hair when I was battling protein overload. In fact, I think my hair would have gotten a lot worse if I hadn’t been using this.

Luster's S-Curl Activator Moisturizer

I go back and forth with this moisturizer so it’s not one that I use consistently, but it has helped give my hair some moisture in a pinch. It’s a liquid so it can be good for those with thick hair like me or fine hair.

In the relaxed hair community, this is a must-have for when you’re deep in a relaxer stretch because it helps to soften new growth but it also works on relaxed hair.

Serums/Stylers

It's a 10 Haircare Miracle Styling Serum

As I was working to overcome the damage my hair had suffered I stopped using natural oils to seal in my moisturizer. I instead started to use this serum from It’s a 10. I’d read some really good things about it and it claimed to help control frizz and fight humidity which my damaged hair was constantly battling with.

I stopped using it for a while but have brought it back to see how it performs as a serum for my roller sets. So far, so good.

Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, C12 15 Alkyl Benzoate, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Mauritia Flexuosa Fruit Oil, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydrogenated Castor Oil/Sebacic Acid Copolymer, Benzyl Salicylate, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool, Fragrance.

TGIN Argan Replenishing and Hair Body Serum

I bought this serum from TGIN kinda on a whim. TGIN was having a sale and my hairstylist had just told me that I should be using argan oil on my hair. When I bought this I didn’t realize that it had more than argan oil and that argan oil wasn’t even the first ingredient, but since I started using it I’m in love!

I’ve been using the TGIN Argan Replenishing and Hair Body Serum as a sealant when I moisturize and it makes my hair feel so soft and smooth without leaving any type of film or grease.

Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Argan Oil, Peach Kernel Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Hibiscus Flowers, Fragrance.
