Glover's Mane, Ultra Sheen (green one), TCB shampoo/conditioner.
When I was little, I used to wear my hair in braids all of the time and had very long hair. Perhaps I need to put my hair back in braids again.

She used the blue-green Ultra Sheen grease (rarely the green, for some reason). That black rubber comb with the handle.
I don't even know what shampoo or conditioner she used, because I don't recall ever getting my hair washed at home (my great aunt was a hair stylist, so I always got my hair washed, pressed and curled there).
My hair was long too. I'm guessing that protective styling and low manipulation had a lot to do with that.
Girl I still have a black rubber comb with the handle, I jacked my daddy for it! LOL We did the blue Ultra Sheen and everybody in the house smelled like Sulfer 8, I almost bought some to day!! I have long thick beautiful hair, it was the tender loving care and protective styling. Braids and twists...

1. Creme of Nature Shampoo (red, blue, and green labels...whichever one she grabbed first)
2. Luster's Pink Oil Moisturizing Lotion
3. Blue Magic Grease

sulfur8 oil, and ultra sheen grease. My hair has NEVER been long....partly becuase it is always thin and weak.
My mom made these ugly plaits that she made me wear to school (I would take them out on the way there)

I think my mom used the ENTIRE TCB line. I remember the TCB neutralizing shampoo smelling of green apples. I used to love to get my hair washed just to have the scent on my hair. She used the neutralizing shampoo on us whether we were getting a touch-up or not. :lol:

Ultra Sheen hair grease(the blue green one), Queen Helene Cholesterol, and Tresemme Shampoo.
That nasty hot comb she had to heat up on a brazier that burnt the crap out of my hair, and scalded my ears
Colgate shampoo and conditioner and pretty much any other cheap drug store products.
And like most other women here my hair was long, and in pretty good shape. I just wish she hadn't taken me in for a perm, it was better natural but she had to fight to style it day after day.

drugstore shampoo & conditioner and pink oil lotion or TCB grease.
10-13-2006, 12:32 AM
Vaseline(Not sure why- I think for the eczema)
10-13-2006, 03:07 AM
The hot comb
Just For Me
10-13-2006, 03:18 AM
Wella Balsam Shampoo
bergamont hair grease
Pink Oil Lotion
I had a dryness/dandruff issue going on. My hair wasn't super long, but it was/is super thick, and it was the bane of my mother's existence. I hated straightening comb day, my left ear always managed to get roasted.

Dax- The black one- cos i have dry scalp
Indian Hair oil- anyone, usually Jasmine
Vaseline Hair Tonic
Any Shampoo, no conditioner
Occasionaly she would change products
10-13-2006, 05:50 AM
The whole bottle of Just for Me detangler because my hair was so hard to manage. Pink moisturizer when she would straighten my hair out....I hated that smell. Creme of Nature which I still use to this day from time to time.

I'm sad to say my mother only used shampoo and nothing else. My hair was washed about once a week. She brushed (yes) my hair daily.
That's all the hair care I got :lachen:
I forgot to say that she was extremely scissor happy so I never had long hair as a child, but it grew quickly. As soon as it reached my shoulders she would cut it :D She hated brushing out the tangles!

My hair was probably washed once a month, I don't remember that well. I know that my grandma used any kind of hair grease but never vaseline. My Mother used dax and 911 leave in conditioner the watery kind. The both loved to put some glovers in my hair. Can you imagine walking around in the middle of summer smelling like that.

Luster's pink moisturizer. The one in the bottle.
