Know Your Ingredients Pt. 4

It'sssss BACK! 

Know Your Ingredients Pt. 4 series is back in full swing and I'm excited to share it with you. I am a huge advocate for spreading healthy hair care knowledge, and that includes sharing information on ingredients too i.e. what it means, what it does to the hair, and what products you can find them in etc.

If you're an "ingredient inspector," like myself, ingredient knowledge (on hair products) will be a key factor that you will value throughout your hair journey. By knowing and understanding the ingredients in your hair products, will not only turn you into a better "hair product shopper"; but it will allow you to grasp the concept of knowing what products will work for your hair and why. It's like you'll be able to predict how your hair will feel just based on reading the ingredients and understanding their key functions - this is HUGE!

Are you an "ingredient inspector" when it comes to hair products? If so, what ingredient(s) does your hair adore? 

Or, if you're a newbie to ingredient knowledge, what particular ingredients peek your interest?

Stay Tuned!

  1. I have fine, coarse and dry relaxed hair with low porosity. The worst combinaison if you ask me! I really love conditioners containing Behentrimonium Methosulfate. It gives my hair the right slip and seems to penetrate my hair strands. Olive oil replenishing conditioner (best conditioner EVER), Ors hair mayo and Aunt Jackie's in control moiturizing conditioner were really sent from God to help me with my hair.

    I always add some essential oils to any product that I purchase to make them extra efficient (rosemary, lavender, peppermint).

    Val, do you have low porosity hair? Can you share some tips, techniques, hair treatment on low porosity hair? I find that there is not a lot of info available aiming at low poroaity and relaxed hair at the same time.

    Thank you in advance,
