[I want her hair. I smell a twist out in my future. - source; I Mean Fashion]
- Microfiber Hair Towel - I love these, and you will too if you try one. They are highly absorbent [which cuts down on drying time], and also help to combat the dreaded frizz monster. Not to mention they reduce split ends during the towel drying process [they are made of super soft microfiber]. ($5.09 - Kmart)
- Denman Detangling Brush [D81M] - Much better [for my tresses] than the regular Denman, as this one is made specifically for detangling. I still detangle first with my Mason Pearson, but I sometimes smooth out the hair with this brush. Sleek and smooth every time! (15.65 - Beauty Deals)
- Pure Brazil Nut Oil - I love this stuff, [please don't use if you have nut allergies] it is thick, and EXTREMELY moisturizing. Add a little bit to your shampoo, use it by itself as a prepoo conditioning treatment, or you can use it to seal the moisture into your hair. This is hands down one of my favorite oils to use for hair! It imparts mega shine, and makes for soft, touchable hair. (1.5oz $2.58 - Texas Natural Supply)
- Rene Furterer Karite Intense Nourishing Conditioning Cream - This is a definite SPLURGE item, so it is not heavy on my product rotation list. It was mentioned in an article by my hair idol Tracee Ellis Ross, so you know I HAD to get it. I use it in my hair before hitting the steam room at my gym, then I rinse it out, pull my hair back in a bun, and finish the rest of my hair rituals at my house. The only drawback is the ingredients [which I have listed below for your convenience], they aren't all natural like my beloved Jessicurl Weekly Deep Treatment, but for the softness and manageability I get from my using it, I will take the bullet every now and then. - This puppy will set you back $46 for 6.8oz and is available through Sephora.

-Shea Oil (extracted from shea butter contains 80% of essential fatty acids): Shea helps rebuild the hydrolipidic film and the intercellular cement in scalp and hair.
-Phospholipids: Essential substances found in the composition of cellular membranes. Because of their high affinity with capillary structure they penetrate into the deepest hair layers to rebuild cellular membranes and reactivate intercellular exchanges, which is a source of life in hair.
-Copra Oil (extracted from coconut is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E): Its softening, nourishing, and coating qualities make it a choice active ingredient. In Polynesia, copra oil has been used for ages to moisturize and protect devitalized hair.
