You can find marshmallow root or tea at health food stores

I happen to get the powder from an Indian grocery store out here

You can find fenugreek (methi seeds or powder) at any Indian/Asian grocery. it's food

Hi, I'm:  Jessica
I love:  Wash & go's and Motions Lavish Conditioning Shampoo & deep conditioning with Moisture Plus Conditioner mixed with honey & coconut oil
My Splurge is:  None... I'm extremely frugal with my money :-)
My Cheap Fix is:  Mixing the honey & coconut oil in my deep conditioner...  And use the same honey for my daily tea that I drink (I try to use my resources to the fullest. LOL)
I don't get why ladies love:  "All-natural" hair products and products like Miss Jessie's which are extremely expensive...  This leads into my little secret...
My little Secret is: Blue Magic hair grease and water!  I would use Vaseline and water like my mother used when I was a child, but Blue Magic is actually cheaper than Vaseline.  LOL!  I originally tried every all-natural product when I went natural, but quickly found that those products did not work for me.  So, I went back to the basics because I remember as a child my mother only used Vaseline and water on my hair and I had hair down to waist.
I want to try: Curlformers, but don't have the patience because my hair is extremely thick!  I may have to pay someone to put them in for me for that reason.  LOL!

Hi, I'm:Ritle
I love: Touching my hair, lol.
The Herbal Essence conditioners(Hello Hydration is my favorite, it quenches the thirst) but I have a bottle of TRESèmme that I brought with me from vacation and I love it(unfortunately I'm running out and they don't sell it in the stores here), I love the Olive oil brand replenishing shampoo and the deep conditioner (they are the business for my moisture balance), the IC Fantasia serums(great while wearing my hair curly and also great to refresh/preserve a stretched style, haven't tried them all but they're quite similar i.m.o.),Extra Virgin Olive oil, Eco styler gel(Another thing I brought from overseas,the transparent one, but unfortunately only a teenie bit left and they don't sell that here either(never mind, I just saw a web shop has it now yay!). Great for that extra polished look, a little goes a long way).
Oh and I love the diffuser for those moments when air drying just isn't possible.
My Splurge is:Conditioners!I have enough of those at the moment though.
My Cheap Fix is: Water+conditioner spritz mix sealed with an oil.
I don't get why ladies love: /
My little Secret is:

Since I'm back on track after my setback...
Still keeping it simple but without any negligence what so ever.
Wearing my hair curly: Not washing out the conditioner(unless it's of the flaky kind)but that's not really a secret now is it? lol
And I wash in two sections now, simple and tangle free.

Wearing my hair semi-straight: Satin hair hood dryer(should also go on my "I love" list but I type too much , it's also perfect for deep conditioning), only have to sit under it for about an hour on warm setting and a few minutes on cool setting with a wet roller set using snap-on magnetic rollers, after that I only have to pass the flat-iron once on a small section of hair. Less heat, less time, loving it.
I want to try:Apple cider vinegar and grape seed oil.A new color for my hair. Oh and those clay hair masks. Hair vitamins.
Ok I've typed enough, but I had some catching up to do.
