Hi, I'm Diva84
I love grapeseed oil.  It seals well and defines my curls like no other.
My Splurge is: I don't know.  I've been in student budget mode for so long...
My Cheap Fix is: Aussie Moist.  A quick co-wash and I can start all over.
I don't get why ladies love: Shea Moisture products.  They leave my hair dry, stiff, weighed down, and U-G-L-Y.
My little Secret is a modified Denman D3 to define curls.
I want to try Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose and some of the other popular moisturizing conditioners.

Hi, I'm: Chacurie
I love: Natural homemade mixes for deep conditioning and oil infusions.
My Splurge is: Oils and teas.
My Cheap Fix is: Coconut Milk
I don't get why ladies love: eh ... I don't care what other people do tbh. If it works for them, it works for them. 
My little Secret is: Using evoo at night to oil my scalp
I want to try: Shea Butter Mixes! I wish there were vendors in Germany, but it seems like I'll have to just order online. /sigh

Hi, I'm: yahya

I love: hairveda products and roux ph corrector

My Splurge is: 
japanese straightening

My Cheap Fix is: 
honey, molasses, cheapie v05 & suave conditioners, baggying, and kimmaytube's leave-in

I don't get why ladies love: 
to say how they don't like girls of african descent to have straight hair, weaved or relaxed or even natural. yet if an asian gets a curly or afro perm, it's acceptable. shouldn't what really matter is that the hair is healthy and looks good on them?  Unhappy

My little Secret is: 
I watch indian rapunzel and similar videos when I'm lazy and need motivation, usually to apply my growth aids. (I couldn't imagine growing my hair that long though! x D) 

I want to try: aveda black malva with henna, maka oil and powder, marshmallow root, nexxus pro mend, cayenne oil, conair shower comb, fantasia ic serum with grape seed oil... think that's it.

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.

Hi, I'm: Dijah

I love: Coconut Oil, Hawaiian Silky 14-1, ApHogee 2 Step (really helped with the breakage and heat damage I was having), & Aussie Moist for them rough days!

My Splurge is: CurlKit (for 2013) & Jane Carter Solution Products! LOVE LOVE LOVE the latter!

My Cheap Fix is: Fantasia IC gel to slick down for an easy bun.

I don't get why ladies love: Ms. Jessies. Ewlk, ewlk, ewlk on my hair. Biggest waste of $$

My little Secret is: Deep condition as often as possible (once a week!) and switch up your products every time. I go between La Bomba, Nexxus Humectress, Kera Care, ORS Mayo and ORS Replenishing packs.

I want to try: Hair color! But I know that will come with it's own set of shenaBrothans

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!
