Regimen + Goals

My Hair Regimen: I moisturize and/or oil my hair daily. As needed (usually weekly) I cleanse my hair and scalp with a moisturizing shampoo (or a clarifying one if there's build up). I do a moisturizing OR protein treatment with every shampoo. I stretch my relaxers 3-4 months.

My go-to protective/low manipulation styles: buns, braid-outs and halfwigs. In 2012 I want to start experimenting with more heat-free styles. I air dry most of the time and flat iron for length checks only.

I'm currently midback length (MBL) and actively working towards reaching waist length by my graduation in mid-2012.

First Impression: CON Argan Oil Shampoo

Soo in case you were out of the loop, the company who makes Creme of Nature Detangling Conditioning shampoo (better known as the green label one) decided to add sulfates to it. And after they realized their sales went in the toilet afterward, they gave us back the original with a twist: Creme of Nature Moisture & Shine Shampoo.

I rinsed my hair thoroughly with water then applied the shampoo generously to my hair and scalp. It lathered very well considering all the different products and oils I caked on during the week. Rinse and repeat. This shampoo doesn't have as much slip as the old formula. But it did cleanse and lather well for a sulfate-free shampoo. The actual argan oil is towards the middle of the list, so it's not super argan-y and the ingredients aren't great (I can't pronounce some of them).

Overall I have a decent first impression. I'm a fan of the face-lift (I stan for Argan oil) but honestly I think they would have been better off just returning to the original ingredients. Not everyone is into the Argan Oil hype, and some people are allergic to it.

Ingredients: Aqua, Trideceth-7, Carboxylic Acid, Decyl Glucoside, Glycol Stearate, Polyquarternium-10, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Quaternium-15, Perfum (Fragrance), Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, CI 14700 (Red4), CI19140 (Yellow 5).
