Ooh Can I Touch It?

My Products


Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo (9.99 for 12 oz. Target) this product does exactly what the title says. If your hair is dry or brittle this shampoo can reverse those feelings in just one wash. I sound like I work for "Shea Moisture" but I love mostly everything they create.

Black Soap - I didn’t know until this past week that black soap was okay for washing hair. I have used it twice. It supports curl and wave definition, but don’t use too much soap on your hair because the residue is irritating, make sure you rinse it all out. The last time I washed my hair I had to use another shampoo just to get all of the soap residue out (I had the same problem with castille soap). But I’m sure I’m doing something wrong, perhaps.


Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Moisturizing Hair Lotion - I usually only use this when I straighten or blowdry my hair. It is a little thick. It is also good in the winter time and it smells good. Some of the ingredients are harsh (dimethicone and alcohol), so I don’t use it as much. But it does more good than harm to my hair so it’s cool, in moderation. I usually use Kid Organics Shea butter moisturizing hair lotion but I’m running low.

Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter - smells delicious and is completely natural. The consistency is a little dense so I don’t use much. But it makes my hair soft and good smelling.

Kinky Curly Knot Today Detangling Leave-in Conditioner - I love this. it smells delicious and it is organic supposedly. I just found out that alcohol is an ingredient...NOT today. 14 dollars a bottle I believe at Target. I won’t be buying it again but I’ll finish the bottle.

Giovanni Direct Leave in Conditioner - a nice light leave-in conditioner for extending twist outs

Glycerin and Rose Water


Organic Root Stimulator Replenishing Conditioner - the best and most affordable deep conditioner (about 7 dollars) that I have found. I won’t stop using this until I find something better. I usually deep condition overnight or for at least 3 hours with a cap.

Honey - I don’t always use honey but when I do it provides the best conditioning results. It also increases curl pattern/definition. It is a natural humectant, so it draws in the moisture in the air. (Not recommended if you want to wear your hair straight) Use it as a pre-poo, use it as a conditioner —it’s very versatile. Just make sure your hair is wet and you rinse it all out —it’s not sticky at all while your hair is wet.


 Hollywood Beauty Castor Oil - I have been using this “grease” since I was a teenager. It smells good and the ingredients are mostly organic. Castor oil thickens and it is one of the main ingredients, so I keep using. Once again, I usually only use this when I plan on wearing my hair blow dried or straight.

Castor oil - oil for thickening hair, I don’t use as much as I should- :-/

Vegetable Glycerin - Mix a bit with water in a spray bottle and you have the perfect moisturizer. I usually use this when I’m wearing a twist out or braid out.

EV Coconut Oil - great oil for hair and scalp. I need to buy some more. Makes hair soft, shiny and manageable. No lie.

Jojoba Oil - same as coconut oil, I also use it for massages


Paul Mitchell Wax Works, generic from Sally’s -for slicking my edges down

Tangle Teezer - the tangle teezer is great for 4b hair, like mine it gets out all those annoying end tangles

I find most of my products in unusual places. I find quality products for discount prices at stores like TJ Maxx and Marshall's. Health food stores are great places for beauty products. Below are some links.
