Curly Fall and Winter product must have 2015 ( Co-wash conditioners )

Co-wash  , great for your curls all year round but winter is even more important . Do not skip on your winter regimen , I know because I sometimes also skip on my wash days throughout the year but winter is essential . If you dont know what co-wash means , it is the washing of the hair using only conditioner in order to maintain more moisture , shampoo strip the hair of its natural oil. While shampoo is good , too much shampoo washing will dry the hair and even more so for curly hair .

Pura d'or Premium Organic Argan Oil Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo Review



Pura d'or Premium Organic Argan Oil Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo this is another great product for hair loss .

TRESemme Smooth and Silky Anti-Frizz Secret Cream




This little product here , I like so much , not love but like. It really does work on frizz , making your hair much more silky the only downside is the smell , I dont like so much  also  if your looking something more natural this would not be the one for you . There are other products out there that can give you better or equal result but this one is not bad and its worth a try . It also claimed to  keeps your hair ultra-smooth for up to five washes . I have not washed my hair 5 times yet so cant say for sure . If you have tried this you can leave a comment below letting me know your result .

I am amazed with this little product . It takes a little while getting used to for me because I was a bit skeptical but after 5- 10 minutes I have no problem using it . This little product works like a charmed .
