After using Tropical Traditions brand of Virgin Coconut Oil I finally understand why so many people praise it so highly. As I told you in my preliminary review, no straight liquid oil I’ve used thus far has made my skin as soft as when I use this brand of coconut Oil.
As you guys know, I make most of my own stuff: lotions, shea butter whips, hair conditioners/leave in conditioners, deep conditioning treatments, etc.
So although I do use certain off-the-shelf products, I’m always looking for ways of making my own concoctions and not getting bogged down in that whole product junkie world like I used to be.
My attitude is that if something doesn’t work, I don’t give a damn how expensive it is, I ain’t using it anymore.
I took a little of this Tropical Traditions Coconut oil and put some on my super dry hands and was shocked. They were smoother and softer than with other brands of coconut oil.
I feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when I create something that works well on my hair without all the parabens, mineral oil and other crap. So, I almost hate it when a commercial product works incredibly well on my natural hair.
Right now, I am so hatin’ on Lustrasilk Curl Max Curl Activator Moisturizer
One place to Buy it: Walgreens
My curls have taken a liking to this stuff just from a couple of test applications. I’m talking about the one with the super soft, brownish gel like consistency, not the “Extra Light” white creamy one.
