Being a curly girl in the Philippines is literally not an easy “job”. To think that people here prefer to have super straight hair or bouncy straight hair, there’s no chance for a curly girl like me to automatically love my curls. It took me 20 years to realize that, thanks to internet *ehem* YouTube. Thanks to Luhhsettyxo I was motivated to come back to my natural hair and pursue the curly hair journey 😀 Now, what products do I use to maintain my hair?
SHAMPOO Since I’m currently unemployed and living in the province of Tarlac finding curly hair goodies is a hard task. The very first thing that I tried to look for is a sulfate free shampoo. You can’t really find one on grocery stores here, you need to go to Watsons-SM to find the only sulfate free shampoo here in Tarlac. and its.. Every curly girl needs a sulfate free shampoo since curly hair’s naturally dry and sulfate takes off the sebum of the hair aka oil that the hair produces. Not everyone appreciates this cause it doesn’t lather as much as the normal shampoo we see on groceries. I’m also having less and less hair fall. I’ve been using this for almost six months now and I totally recommend it 😀 You can check out Nanny Rose’s website for more information (click here) and here are some reviews you might want to check:
_____________________________________________________________________ CONDITIONER When I say fluffy I mean it in the nice way fluffy 🙂 And since I’ve been using this my curl pattern turned out a lot better. Plus its a good deal since its 2 for Php200.00, still a little pricey but it works 😉 I’m looking forward to purchasing the shea butter one. This has alcohol in it and silicone so I sometimes use a normal shampoo to clear them off. Here’s a review you might want to check out:
_____________________________________________________________________ LEAVE-ON CONDITIONER A curly hair needs a lot of conditioning and moisturizing. This leave-on adds up some needed moisture. I noticed some changes after purchasing one of these and its been around two (2) months since then. The thing is I need a bigger one so I can save with some wholesale price or something.

_____________________________________________________________________ HAIR OIL I’ve recently got a new hair oil and its good to what its supposed to do. its a little pricey to me but I think its fine since its a good mix. I only regret that I spilled almost half of it during our outing because it was so hard to get the lid off when you have slippery hands and that means I’ve wasted half my money but it sure did seal in the water of my clothes cause I couldn’t make them bubble. oh well..
THIS! is my life saver!! This is #LEGIT! It seriously removes the fizz and makes my hair curl like BAM! 😀 Its not the best as for the alcohol free and all the jazz but it works for my hair. I know that’s what I need to get my hands off but if it works then its fine by me 🙂 It’s one of the first products I’ve used to tame this mane and I love it!

Here are my trustee old tamers XD First the Hydro Gel, I’ve started using this since… I haven’t decided to go curly. Those days that I just want to keep my head to a clean pony tail or a smooth bun this was my life saver. It’s Hydro Gel so it doesn’t look like those stiff hair-ish thingy… it’s lie a wet lookish.. you know? But it never damaged my hair and using this gel went well..
NEXT CAMEI’s Spray Gel that’s really a hair spray (I didn’t notice that before purchasing). I wouldn’t buy a hair spray on purpose cause I’m not a fan but since I got this one I’m using it anyway. I like how it doesn’t weigh down my hair and it gives a good hold w/c keeps my edge and frizz out of the way!
That’s pretty much everything I use every time I wash my hair. I don’t wash my hair on a daily basis since I don’t have to and hair washing only makes my hair dry plus I can’t afford to use up my products fast because as I’ve said I’m not yet employed and I don’t have any purchasing power unless my mama helps me 😛 XD
