Favorite Products Amazon Store

Quick post to announce that I just created an Amazon Favorite Products Store, where Coco & I will list our “must have” products.  I also went ahead and added other products that I like a lot, but may not make my “must have” list.  By “must have”, we mean products that we immediately repurchase when we run out.

If you purchase items through the store, we earn a small amount of affiliate money, however I will note in each product description if the product is cheaper if purchased in a store near you.  Yes, I’d like to earn money, but I also want to make sure you get the best deal out there. One quick note about Amazon.com – the prices fluctuate a lot, so the prices of the items listed may or may not change often.  Be sure to check back.  Also, when choosing products to list, I tried to locate products that qualify for Amazon’s free shipping (I personally hate to pay shipping prices).  However, some of the products are only available from third party sellers, so there may be shipping prices.  Just to be clear, these products are NOT sold or distributed by us.  We are simply affiliates that make a few cent with each product sold.  Amazon does the rest!

So, if you get a chance, check out our Amazon.com store; making sure to read the descriptions to check and see if the product is cheaper else where!

Coco’s Must-Have Products

I sometimes hear women say the only reason they will not go natural is because it is too expensive. A lot of women are under the impression that it is imperative that they have to buy all these expensive natural hair products on the market today. So, I just wanted to do a post featuring my must-have items to show those skeptical women out there that natural hair does not have to cost a lot.

I am a reformed product junkie. These are my essentials items, I can get by on these and don’t really need anything else. I do try other products now and again when other people recommend them to me so this list may change in the future but as of right now this is all I need.

 Depending on my budget, I love to use either Suave or Creme of Nature shampoo and conditioner. Suave can be purchased for as low as $.85 and Creme of Nature cost slightly more at $3.99 depending on where you buy it.

I love Organic Root Stimulator Smooth-n-Hold Pudding, this is my favorite product. This product can be used on every hairstyle I like to do. I use it on my braid-outs, two-strand twists, flat twists, and it can be used to slick down puffs (though I have been using other gels to do so just because I want to use them up). It doesn’t flake and it holds my hair well. I purchase mine at the beauty supply for $5.49.

I usually use my Cantu Shea Butter before styling unless I’m using another product on my hair. I have found that Cantu Shea Butter doesn’t play well with other products and will clump up in my hair. I love the smell and I love the way it makes my hair look. Cantu Shea Butter can be purchased for $5.99.

I like to use Virgin Coconut Oil on my braid-outs to make them shiny or to sustain my two-strand twists. I purchased from Tropical Traditions through Amazon.com for $19.99 which is more than I normally spend for hair care products but this was before I knew any better. However, it is a pretty big jar and I’ve had this jar for over a year now and it’s still over 2/3 full so I’m getting my money’s worth. However, coconut oil can be purchased from just about any grocery store for around $4.

Here are all the utensils I use to accomplish my styles. I like to detangle using my pick and deman brush. I use my rat tail comb for parting. The goody bands and clicks help secure the hair I’m not working on out of the way. My black rubber bands are used to hold my flat twists. A silk bonnet to maintain my styles while I sleep and a silk wrap scarf to secure my puffs.

Free Sample – NEW Pantene for all Hair Types

I was randomly searching google for new natural hair products, when I noticed in the search results that Pantene is now advertising the NEW Pantene for all hair types.  Apparently they now have different shampoos & conditioners for different hair types such as curly hair, med-thick hair, fine hair, etc.

I am posting this because they are actually giving away free samples of the NEW Pantene product line.  If you’re interested in trying out the NEW Pantene, go to their website located here: Pantene and click the “get a free sample” link on the home page.

You will have to sign up for the P & G Brands Samplers site.  After you sign up, you can choose to get free samples of other products as well as coupons.  At the top you will see an area where you choose which of the NEW Pantene products you’d like to try based on your hair type.

I’ve given previous Pantene products pretty good reviews, so I look forward to trying out this NEW Pantene.
