Ever since finding Qhemet Biologics Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee it seems like I have been on a mission to find a moisturizer that compares. For my hair, a moisturizer, a GOOD moisturizer, seems like the hardest thing to come by. I’ve been using Purabody Naturals Murumuru Moisture Milk as a moisturizer for stretching and then following with CTDG as a final moisturizer and styler for braid-outs and twist-outs. I used the MMM because its moisturizing performance was similar to CTDG. Also, using it in the stretching process allowed my jar of CTDG to last longer (as compared to using the CTDG for stretching, moisture and styling).
Anywho! If you are a fan of Qhemet Biologics you know their online store has been closed since mid December. Their website stated their holiday sale was scheduled to take place late December. We are now in March and their online store is still closed and the sale date is indefinite. Yes, Qhemet has made provisions for their products to be available at retailers, such as Sage Naturalceuticals, while their online store is closed, but a sale is a sale is a sale and I’ve been patiently waiting.
I came to realize, having such a dependency on one brand is probably not a good idea, especially when that brand has closed up shop for what is now almost 3 months. Time to explore 🙂
HOW I BASKed.
I dove right into B.A.S.K. Beauty and reviewed their Y.A.M. Intense Hair Nourisher in January. Loved it! That alone made me want to explore more of their products. I decided to order during their most recent sale and walked away with a few products, including their Sweet Treats sampler pack. Dolls! This stuff is something to write home about. The scent of the products alone is divine. I especially love the Silk & Honey Latte Detangling Hair Milk in necatrine vanilla – mmmmm!
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
My and many other Naturals’ hair goals includes the use of products which allow our hair to be at its best without too much fuss. Just the same as Qhemet, B.A.S.K. Beauty products allowed for my hair to feel extremely moisturized without that greasy and weighted feeling. My hair maintained its hold and softness for several days. The swang and shine were crazy and frizz was kept at a minimum. Too boot, I made it a point to use all of the styling products in the Sweet Treats Hair Sampler (palm tapioca, java bean & honey styling balm, seven fold butter blend) and the Silk & Honey Detangling Milk one after each other in the styling process. I was really expecting build-up and maybe dull looking hair because of that. Nope! The pic you see below is a result of using ALL 4 of the products on two consecutive days. My hair soaked that goodness right up and kept it pushin’ all the while smelling like yummy goodness!
Getting to the point, the very first picture in this post is what my hair looks like with the use of Qhemet Biologics. The picture below is my hair when using B.A.S.K Beauty products.
