Shea Butter – heavy butter for sealing in moisture, softens hair

Aloe Vera Gel (AVG) – for hold, natural moisturizer, promotes growth

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (EVCO) – makes hair manageable, seals in moisture, pre-poo

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) – prepoo, sealant, carrier oil/mixes well w/other oils

These are the absolute essentials that I keep in my arsenal.  Other products vary – the DC and protein treatments of my choice.  As you can see, I focus on natural products that do the trick better than most synthetically constructed products.  Try these out and see if you get some of the same benefits as I have listed above. You can’t go wrong with them.  Most of them have multiple uses – which I love!
