2012 Favorite Hair, Body, & Face Products

If you're reading this, you survived the Mayan Apocalypse!! Yay for you! But on a serious note, we find ourselves at the end of another calender year and it's a time to reflect, and a time to grow! I always say, make each day better than the last so lets make next year better than this one. Looking back over the past year, I went through a lot of changes and started caring more about the ingredients that were in the products I was using. I sort of experienced my quarter life crisis!

The following are my favorite products from 2012 that survived my first purging of my more "toxic" products! In the new year I will have plenty of product reviews for you all as I racked up on natural hair products during Black Friday and for Christmas; I have also been looking into more natural body and facial products to test out. If you have any suggestions of "natural" chemical free products, or brands you can suggest for the categories below, please leave a comment and let me know! I love trying and testing out new products!

  1. Yes to the tools!!! You definitely need those. I haven't tried any of the "As I am" products but I do love the Carol's Daughter Tui line, which you don't have here. My all time favorite deep conditioner, you have and I'm excited to see that you love it too. ORS deep conditioner, saved my hair through the transition and one year post big chop, it still saves my hair. I like that you have a spray oils list. I need to try those as well!

    1. Yay!! I'm glad I was able to give you an idea of what to try! I've used the CD Tui leave in spray in the past but the smell got to me so I switched to the black vanilla scent. I forgot to add my favorite oils which you know Castor Oil is my fave :)

    1. Yes so happy you suggested them to me!! I'm trying something new with my regimen so I'll only be washing with the Aubrey unless I co-wash I read your hair can become immune to products and I want to give the Tresemme a break for a few months :)
