Miss Jessie's Leave-In CondishI’m a sucker for Miss Jessie’s products because they work really well on my hair. So, it makes sense that sooner or later I would try their Leave-In Condish with soybean and aloe.

Andre Walker Hair ShampooLike many naturalistas I prefer to co-wash my hair instead of shampooing. The reason: some shampoos can leave my hair feeling stripped.

They include black castor oil, sweet almond oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, and argan oil. I love them all, but Quench Essential Oil, also known as Q Oil, is a game-changer. Continue reading
