Favorite Products of the Year

I have tried and tried many products this year. Some stuck around and others are collecting dust in the products graveyard. lol So let's see which ones made it to my favorites list.


Purgasm's Cocoa and Yogurt Bar

Cocoa & Yogurt Bar

This shampoo bar is great. It gets the job done. It cleanses my hair but doesn't strip it. It's like using a sulfate free shampoo. When I want to clarify my hair I use the Bobeam Cocoa and Rhassoul Bar.

Cleansing Conditioner:

As I Am Coconut Cowash

I rediscovered this product this year. I had written it off awhile ago and decided to give it try one more time. I am so glad I did. Honoraable mention: Eden Body Works Coconut Cleansing Conditioner


Hairitage Hydration Pink Grapefruit Punch Conditioner

This conditioner...OMG. lol When I first used I wasn't sure about it but when I tell you this conditioner is the is. It is my cowash conditioner. My hair feels extremely soft, moisturized, and easy to detangle. It's pointless to say that's a staple. Is still use TreSemme Naturals from time to time. I have no choice. You know why if you saw post about why I bought so many bottles of it a few months back. lol


Shi-Naturals Moisture Balance Leave-in (Chocolate Scent)

This is the absolute best leave-in ever. Shi-Naturals is such a great product line and will forever (at least while she stills makes them) be in my regimen. I use this leave as my daily moisturizer. Since I am very bad at covering my hair at night this product saves my hair every morning. What I love about it is that my hair never feels weighed down and it doesn't leave build up on my hair.

Hairitage Hydration Soft Coconut Marshmallows

This is another OMG moment. I am currently 18 weeks post relaxer and this leave-in gets the detangling job done. I use it on damp hair and when my hair dries it is left soft and moisturized. It has a soft lime scent because of the lime butter that is it. Great product.

Deep Conditioners:

Shi-Naturals Coconut Creme Conditioner

Shi-Naturals Peppermint Stimulating Conditioner

Shi-Naturals ACV Balancing Conditioner

These conditioners are bar-non some of the best deep conditioners that I have ever used. I find myself using these more often then the other deep conditioners in my stash especially the first two that are pictured above. What I love about them is how well and fast they sink into my hair. They are moisture/protein balanced. My hair always feels soft and moisturized when I use them.


Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum

I still use this product. I haven't deviated from it. It's a great way to put a little bit of protein in your hair but over do it. It has a nice coconut scent to it. Since it's freezing in Chicago, I can't really use Coconut Oil right now.


Eco Styler Gel Argan Oil

This gel does a great job of laying down these edges. lol It doesn't flake and it doesn't weigh my hair down either. Two great and rare qualities in a gel.

What products made you favs list for the year?


  1. I love your list! I wouldn't mind trying the Shi-Naturals and As I Am Coconut Conditioners. The It's A 10 leave in conditioner was one of my favorites this year.

    1. You should definitely try the Shi~Naturals products. Her products are amazing. I have been very instrumental in mynhair journey. No matter how many different products I try I always go back to those products. They are well worth the price.

  2. Hello Organix Anti Breakage Serum. I put that stuff on everything. LMAO!
