Shea Moisture-build up
Maxi glide-frizzy hot mess
straightened natural hair-time consuming, needed too much heat resulting in split ends
Wen-allergic reaction
Braid extensions- always too thick, tears out my hair
Grease-too much buildup and no swing
Nexus humectress-too much buildup
Bleaching-(love hate relationship) breakage but looks so good at first....

S-curl leave-in spray
Hawaiian silky leave-in

Shea Moisture curl enhancing smoothie - made my hair feel greasy
Shea Moisture curl and style milk - made my scalp breakout and also made my hair feel a bit greasy
Shea Moisture deep treatment masque - hated the smell, my hair didn't feel moisturized and had a weird film left on it
Garnier Fructis sleek and shine leave-in with argan oil - the original formula was a staple
Sally's GVP of Paul Mitchel's The Conditioner - went on smooth but left my hair dry
Kinky Curly Knot Today - great at detangling my hair, but lacking in moisture (may revisit in the future)
KCKT a la kimmaytube mix - just made it worse
Denman brush - took out too much hair
Any conditioner by Suave
Tangle Teezer - mid shaft splits at my nape and I only used it once or twice
Herbal Essence Hello Hydration - dried my hair out
Biotin - gave me breakouts even when I only used a 100% RDV
Aussie Moist conditioner - loved it for awhile (prepooing), but the silicone in it caused scalp buildup
Cantu Shea Butter - coated my hair and didn't work with other products


Glad I'm not the only one who didn't like anything from Shea Moisture. There were so many rave reviews on youtube that I wondered if there was something wrong w/ my hair.

Too many products to name...

Curls Unleashed Take Command Curl Cream was the most recent thing I tried that was a total fail.

LA Looks gel (yellow Bottle) also didn't work. My curls were extra defined but super coily and hard. It made my hair a tangly mess when it was time to wash it out.

Proclaim Shine Spray worked well when I would first sprayed it on my hair but would dry my hair out something terrible an hour later.

TRESemme Breakage Defense shampoo and conditioner was hell for me. I have absolutely no idea what ingredient in it made it such a failure but I had DREADS the next morning. I eventually had to buy an Argan Oil pac from Walmart, and that got the dreads out, which is funny because after it got the tangles out and i tried to use it again next week, it didnt do much for me. xD Other than that, butters, cone-free conditioners, avocado, and protein treatments dont really work for me too much. My hair throws tantrums, but then again, i am a newb, so its possible i may be doing something wrong... edit: I meant Tresemme, not Pantene. Pantene is brilliant.

I swear it was like the Anti-Moisturizer!! Took a fabulous DC, and rendered it useless...my hair was Drier than when I put the DC on to begin with. And I had used that DC before, so I knew it was the Agave.

I don't know what the purpose of Agave is....it's useless in porridge, and not totally fantastic in tea either. It's about to find its way to the ocean...

Hello hydration con...did nothing but dried my hair even more
Wave Nouveau moisturizing finishing lotion....hated it
Organix coconut poo and con...made my hair extremely hard

I do have more and will be back to list them but can't think of them at the top of my head right now.

Adding what did'nt work for me was

Kenra conditioner.....dried my hair
No cholesterol conditioners....made my hair a hot hard mess
Joico.....definitely overrated dried my hair
And one of the worse for me which I do believe thinking back not only dried my hair to no end but also cause a massive amount of breakage

Sulfate free shampoos except Keracare Hydrating Detangling shampoo: My favorite shampoo is Design Essentials Moisture Retention Shampoo but it has ALS however it works well on both my relaxed AND natural hair; my hair feels clean and conditioned even just after shampooing! I'm gonna have to stop using it because I plan on using the CHI Enviro Treatment on my hair and I have to use a sulfate free shampoo to maintain it. Keracare is the only sulfate free shampoo that actually cleans my hair without drying it out, so I will be switching to that.

Shea butter: Does nothing for my hair but sit on top of it and make it greasy. And that crap is in everything geared towards natural hair which sucks! It works great on my skin though

Olive Oil: Does nothing and makes my hair kinda crunchy. But coconut oil is AMAZING! I might try avocado oil soon

Not using cones: My hair would be a tangly mess! Now I plan on using less cones i.e. by only cowashing with cone free conditioners but I need some cones because I use heat and I need them to help detangle my hair

NTM leave-in: Great detangler, but left my hair feeling sticky and weird, wet or dry, and I wasn't too crazy about the smell. If I cost less, I would probably still use it for my rollersets just for the detangling BUT...

PROTEIN: OMG NOOOO. And that's all I have to say about that.

Washing in the shower: Don't like it. I don't like all those products running down my back, it creeps me out. The temperature at which I was my hair is way too cold for my body to handle, and I can't really get a good feel for detangling. Plus I'm not about to hop in and out and in again so I can DC.

Sealing: Unless I'm using water, which I only do on my new growth, I don't seal my moisturizer. I see no noticeable difference in my hair so why waste product?

Stretching: So much breakage, it wasn't even funny, and I barely touched my hair during that time.

Air drying: Again: breakage. Anything I put on my hair afterwards tends to just sit on top of it and not do anything, and it's just one painful mess. And it took too long for my hair to dry.

Tresemme Anti-Breakage shampoo: Stripped the hell out of my hair. Left it tangled and matted. Serves me right for cheating on my beloved Pantene just because the other one was cheaper.

Denman brush-headed for 2nd BC because of it

Sulfate shampoos-shrinks and dries out my hair

Overnight DC'ing-hair was too moisturized. When I rinsed in the AM, lots of hair was actually falling out!

Using ONLY natural products-nah, I need something thick and heavy or else my hair will be a dry, tangly mess. natural products are too lite to be used alone

Finger detangling/combing-Nope! Have to at least use my magic star jumbo

Braid extensions-breakage full circle, edges just recovering from 2 years ago
