Note from Collin:
Do you have a product you love? We definitely have many favorite products here on the Hip2Save Team, and thought it would be FUN to share some of them with you! I personally love product recommendations and I’ve also had a few requests from readers, so I have asked each member of the team to think of products they love (cosmetics, kitchen gadgets etc.) and to write up a post that will be shared here every Tuesday. Michelle, my sidekick, is sharing one of her favorites today…
Hey there! It’s Michelle, one of Collin’s sidekicks!
I am a mother of 4 kids, all with varying levels of curly hair. Before I had my kids, I had no idea what to do with curly hair but I sure know now! My daughter (Chloe, shown above) has the tightest curls out of all of my kids. If you want to get technical, most classify her hair curl as a 4c.
I have tried pretty much every product out there and have spent WAY more money testing products than I care to admit. I have bought everything from the very expensive special order products to the store brands. I thought I would share with you what works for us and is fairly inexpensive.
Shampoo and Rinse Out Conditioner
Our favorite shampoo and conditioners are Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner. Shampooing her hair too often dries it out, so we normally only wash it once a week and if it needs cleaned sooner then that we just use the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner alone. The conditioner is not a leave-in but it makes the hair super slippery and helps with de-tangling. This works just as well as many higher priced conditioners I have tried.
This is the key to hydrating your curls. After I wash and condition my daughter’s hair, I then get to work on de-tangling her hair with a wide tooth comb, but first I lather it all up with lots of leave-in conditioner. The Garnier Fructis Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream is a great and inexpensive option and can be purchased at Target and most grocery stores, however my FAVORITES are:
Silicon Mix mixed with one of these Kanechom products. Either of the two shown above work great and I can’t tell a big difference between the two; however, one has a shea butter base and one uses goat’s milk.
The Kanechom tubs are 35.2 ounces and last a long time. The Silicon Mix is also a very large tub (60 oz) and lasts forever. I also love that it doesn’t leave a white film all over her hair like many products we have tried.
I think all hair is beautiful be it curly or straight or somewhere in-between. The key is finding what works for you, since hair types are all so different. I love teaching my kids to embrace their curls and to take good care of them! ❤️
