Glycerin Free Week: Day Three

Okay, so last night I did a scalp massage with Oyin’s Burnt Sugar Pomade, and my hair felt especially buttery this morning. I did a DC with castor oil, olive oil, honey, and TJ’s TTT (apparently I now have to do DCs 3x a week – thanks Naturally Curly!), and left it in for a couple of hours, then simply rinsed. I didn’t do a cowash be my hair felt so good I didn’t want to mess it up! The routine went like this:

– Leave-in: Giovanni 50 50

– Stylers: AO B5 Gel with Curls Goddess Glaze: So I was testing out to see how the GG would act with the B5…well, it didn’t do much. Pretty much came out the same as it did when I used the B5 alone. I always find it weird that this gel doesn’t smell at all, it makes me feel like I’m just putting mush on my head. It’s strange.

– Moisture: AfroVeda Curl Define: I had a little more frizz in the back than I like, so I added a tiny bit more B5 gel. I really do enjoy its texture.

So far, I’m really liking this whole no-glycerin thing. I have my shampoo bar coming here by Friday, so I can’t wait to try it! Here are the ingredients for it:

Ingredients:  Saponified oils of Carrot, Horse Tail, Nettle, and Neem Leaf infused Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Red Palm Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Palmarosa, Litsea Cubeba, Sweet Orange, Benzoin, Cedarwood, Bay Leaf Essential Oils, Aloe Vera Extract.

Caaaaaan’t wait! **Happy dance**

  1. Hey there.

    Alot of people shy away from Glycerin in the winter.

    You have to let me know how you like the Elucence.

    I tried Nourish Spa and couldn’t stand the smell but loved the Citrus Refresh for cowashing. I haven’t tried the TTT. I’ll have to pick some up on my next trip. Unfortunately it’s an hour away. 😦

    1. Yea, I didn’t think glycerin would be a problem for me since the coldest it gets here is around 50, and according to the reports the dew point is optimal for curly hair…but I’m not sure my hair likes it. After the raving I have heard about Elucence, I will definitely review it. I have the Nourish Spa (prob won’t repurchase b/c of the smell) and it works well, but I LOVE TTT. It tingles and smells like peppermint. I’ll check for the Citrus Refresh next time I go; that stinks you live so far away from a TJ’s, I’m not sure what I would do, I get all my vitamins and stuff from there!
