As you see, some of the products that I rated “just okay” or “hated,” many hair enthusiast rave about and love. I contribute this to the fact that everyone’s hair is different and people’s hair will respond differently to different products. I also noticed that as a daily moisturizer, I prefer not to use products that have protein or that are mainly oil based. The ones that contain protein tend to make my hair feel stiff, the oil based ones make my hair feel coated and not moisturized. So the search continued for the perfect moisturizer and I think I have found it (well several).
These are three moisturizers from the BEE MINE line that I adore, in order from most favorite to least although they all are exceptional products: Deja’s Hair Milk, Daily Conditioner, Luscious Balanced Moisturizer. For all of these items, I bought the sample size first to try them out, and then I went back and repurchased larger sizes. This is going to sound funny but this is the truth: These are the most moisturizing moisturizers I have ever tried. They are a bit pricey compared other products but they are well worth the price. These products would fall under the “can’t live without” category because I have seen the moisture level, suppleness and overall condition of my hair drastically improve since using these products. More detailed information about the products is listed below.
