I recently mentioned to a reader here, that I was going through my hair closet.
I need to be kicked, because I have a lot of products that I haven’t touched in months. Some have not even been opened yet: Apretadora, Silicon Mix, Aciete de Moska. I feel like I hit won the lottery.
I forgot all about my beloved apretadora! Mi madre lo me compró Apretadora cuando visitó DR. My mother picked up one jar in DR and I used it a few times, trying to ration it, because I couldn’t get any when I was in school, so I used it sparingly.
She rarely goes to DR, so this stuff had to last me until…well, until I could get to NYC, or afford to buy some online (on a student’s budget – NOT!).
Entonces, I ended up finding a jar of apretadora from DR and another jar made in Jersey, which was just a medicating – yes, it’s the junky in me; what can I say?
Apretadora was my best friend during the summers. I used to put it on about half an hour before I washed my hair. When I was done, my hair felt so soft.
Faviola Carrect – I cannot remember the last time I used this one either, but I used this after I washed my hair and if memory serves me well, my hair thanked me for it.
I used to swear by Silicon Mix when my hair was in bad shape, but I think that I prefer Aphogee now. Una blanca in Sally’s told me about Aphogee. I thought to myself, “What does this white girl know about kinky hair?” Pero, when my friend, who is mixed and has a mini-salon set up in her house said that she used religiously, the week before relaxing, I decided to give it a shot. I’m glad I did.
I’m going to try Silicon Mix next time I intend to relax, as well as Alter Ego – I like to give a product at least 3 tries before deciding to stash it, or trash it.
There are a few more things that I pulled out, but I didn’t have time to take pics. There are also some products that I’d like to try, such as whale sperm. Yep, that’s what I wrote, “w-h-a-l-e s-p-e-r-m.”
If you have tried product, I’d love to hear your thoughts. In fact, if you have trash-it or stash-it experience, I’d love to hear about them, regardless to whether or not it’s a dominican product. I know I’m not the only addicted to buying hair care products!
