I've decided to go back to using a leave in conditioner possibly. As my hair continues to grow, its needs are evolving like crazy it seems like. My hair has now taken an immense liking to creamy products and thrives wonderfully with the use of them. The most recent time I washed my hair, I used my Suave Almond & Shea Butter Conditioner (which is a creamy product) as a leave in and it left my hair so incredibly soft and supple and helped it retain more moisture. I think I may use this up as a leave in for now and then when it's gone, I will use a more natural alternative like
the rave reviewed Oyin Handmade Honey Hemp Conditioner

or maybe Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose Conditoner.

Knowin me, I will end up getting both. I luv Aubrey Organics products and/but I also luv supporting quality BOBs (black owned businesses).
So it's looking like I'll be updating my product line up a bit again. My regimen may be getting altered slightly as well. I'm drafting up my spring/summer hair game plan too. I want to get some good growth this summer and retain most, if not all, of it so that I can get my hair into a bun by the end of this year. I think this is a feasible goal.
Learning this hair is still an exciting and ever changing journey. I luv it.
Also, that Oyin Honey Hemp is not as thick as AOHSR or the Sauve. (I dont know if you necessarily need something thick though) It was a slight disapointment for me. The slip that everyone raves about, I did not get. I had to add castor oil to mine and I would use it as a leave in.
Good luck on deciding!
Looking forward to your Oyin Handmade review-I have yet to try this line.
Like you, I am still very excited about my hair as well : )
