A Few of My Favorite Things: Conditioner!

I've been No-Pooing (no shampoo) since my first big chop back in 2007.  There are about a million websites, blogs, and forums that will give you very detailed specifics about the benefits of No-Pooing so I will not go into them all, but my 2 main reasons for sticking to conditioners are...

1. It's just plain cheaper - The less I have to spend on hair products the better!  Right hand raised and currently seeking a meeting, I am a products junky and if I can keep my hair healthy with just conditioner why would I waste money on shampoo.

2. Shampoos are abrasive - Most shampoos are simply stripping the oils and moisturizers that conditioners are replacing in your hair.  If you need to clarify in order to get rid of product build up, you can easily find a conditioner with enough cleansers to rid your hair of build up or find an easy homemade clarifying recipe (another good use for Apple Cider Vinegar).


In my years of searching for the best conditioner without breaking my pockets here are a few that I have come to LOVE...

Suave Professionals Rosemary Mint Conditioner

THE BEST conditioner you will find for the price.  A 32oz. bottle will run you $3-$5.  Great for detangling, curl definition, and moisture.  I no-poo my hair with this as well as add it to my favorite daily spritz.

Organix Hydrating Teatree Mint Conditioner

Not as good as Suave Professionals but still a great hydrating conditioner which makes for easy detangling and distribution.  Sulfate and Silicone free.

Philosophy Amazing Grace Perfumed Hair Conditioner

This conditioner takes my curl definition to the max!  Great for a wash and go in the summer time.  A little pricier than the conditioners above (about $21.00) but if you only use it for a wash and go like I do, it should last you a few months.

BHL Spotting: Solange!

Solange was spotted wearing beautiful box braids at a Hennessey Privilege Event hosted by the ever so sexy Mechad Brooks.  I love this style on her!  I'm hoping I can find someone to recreate them for me this summer.


BHL Spotting: More Rihanna (Updated with Controversial Video!)

More BHL pictures of Rihanna on the set of her video "S&M".  Still loving this wig on her.  What do you think of it?

Top 10 BHL Inspirations: #1

Drum Roll Please......

"Chaka Khan,
Let me rock you
Let me rock you
Chaka Khan
Let me rock you
That's all I wanna do
Chaka Khan, let me rock you
Let me rock you, Chaka Khan
Let me rock you
'Cause I feel for you
Feel for you"

Oh Yes!  I can't think of anyone more deserving of the #1 spot.  After some discussion, it was suggested that the spot belonged to Diana Ross, but when you look back over Ms. Ross' career she began with a short sleek look while she was with the Supremes and then graduated later to BHL.  However,  Chaka Khan has been rocking Fabulous "is as long as it is wide, can't sit behind her in the theatre, won't purchase a compact car cause her hair just won't fit" hair since the beginning!

No hair but the head piece is just so hot!

So now the question is...who is on your list of BHL Inspirations? Email any pics or names to me here and I will post them as I receive them.
