On The Search for a Good Moisturizer

Hello, ladies. I am coming to you today because me and my mother are having a great deal of trouble keeping our hair moisturized. Unlike my mother, I do baggy sessions, and my hair is still crunchy, dry and lackluster. Also, my DCs are starting to become more and more dull. I have been between a few moisturizers: ORS moisturizer, One and Only Argan Oil moisturizer, Dark and Lovely moisturizer and African's Best Moisturizer. These three are not helping me. The only one that may give my hair a little life is ORS. Other than that, I am ready to chuck the other ones out the door.

So, I have decided to try to new moisturizers. I have already eliminate the ones listed above. I am trying to find something new. My mother and I are trying to retain length. So, these are the ones that I will be trying out:

1. Crème of Nature
2. Dr. Miracle
3. Bee Mine
4. Mizani
5. Elasta QP
6. Cantu

We are desperate!!! We are about to lose our minds, lol. Along with the search for a better moisturizer, I am also looking for a better DC for our hair. The ones that are at the house about to get the boot soon enough. I have already thrown away one moisturizer. I am serious about my growth now. I believe that I have gotten my hair healthy enough where I should be seeing serious length growth. However, not having a great moisturizer and a great DC could really bump me down, and I am not ready to have to start over building a hair regimen AGAIN. SO, I will keep you updated on my purchases and I will be doing reviews with each new moisturizer I try at this point.

Thanks for reading. Wish us luck!!!


  1. I would suggest Neutrogena Triple Moisture Leave-in ( it's light weight and works great for me)
    I also just read a blog post on Silicon Mix and Lacio Lacio Moisturizers and it seems like something to try.
    HTH! Good luck!

    1. I will make sure I try this one too. I have heard good things about it, so I do not know why I didn't put it on this list. However, that list isn't my complete list. I will make sure to pick some up. Thanks a lot for the info. I'll tag you in my review post about it.

  2. Here are my top 2:

    1. Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Split End Protector
    2. Jessicurl's Too Shea Conditioner

    Buena Suerte chica!
