After nearly 17 years of detangling my 3A curls, I finally have a list of products that actually work! While different hair types may gravitate towards more hydrating or more holding products, here are a few products that I have repurchased multiple times simply because of their dependability and assurance that I will get glossy defined curls with every use!

MY STATS:

Curl type: 3A / 3B
Hair porosity: High
Length: Little below shoulder
Number of times I wash my hair: Twice a week

OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Conditioner — $7.99

This product is the OG! Traditionally a conditioner, I prefer to use this as a leave in, and it conditions my curls for days! Not only does this leave your hair feeling hydrated, it is also not too pricey at $7.99 for 13.0 ounces. You can start your hydration routine by buying this product here.

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Hair Masque — $13.99

This is a great masque to use after shampoo and conditioner. I apply a hair mask every time I wash my hair, but if your hair does not need as much moisture, you can even use it every two weeks or once a month. This makes your hair super soft and leaves it amazingly nourished. You can purchase this softening masque here.

Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls — $22

I'm kind of afraid of putting this product on here, because I know that once you try it out, you'll never go back. Guess I'm going to have to get used to this being out of stock... This is the MOST EPIC styler there is out there and has helped me achieve Instagram level curls in terms of shine and hold. People also constantly come up to me and tell me how much my hair smells like deep sleep, and I am here for it!

You can find this product here, but do me a favor and not order too much of it cause this girl needs her curls to pop too, okay?

Moroccanoil Treatment — $34

If your hair is really craving that extra moisture and protection from heat, you can use this product as a styler or a generic hair oil for blowdrying etc. I use this product to tame flyaways and add luminosity to my curls! You can purchase this oil here.

Shea Moisture Mongongo And Hemp Seed Oils High Porosity Moisture — Seal Co-Wash — $11.89

If you have high porosity hair like me, this product is a life saver! I use it to refresh my curls about three to four days into my wash week. This product does not completely strip your hair of oils, but takes away dirt and adds shine back into your hair. If you're looking for a co-wash, you can get yours here.

Shea Moisture Mongongo and Hemp Seed Oils High Porosity Moisture-Seal Styling Gel — $11.99

My favorite gel ever! Another product from Shea Moisture's High Porosity range, this gel goes hand in hand with the cowash above. Not crunchy or sticky, this gel had the best hold and definition without any flaking! This gel can be found here.

Garnier Fructis Smoothing Treat 1 Minute Avocado Mask — $4

If you're not about to spend $30 on a hair mask, this is a curl-friendly option you can find at your local Walmart or Target for only $4! These masks are extremely softening and nourishing on the hair, even if you only leave it on for a minute. Now, even your hair can join in on the avocado trend. Purchase this mask here.

Carol's Daughter Almond Milk Sulfate Free Shampoo — $10

Have you been straightener-happy the past few months (or years)? If you have extremely heat damaged hair or have had many treatments in the past, this shampoo is for you. Tender and gentle on near fried hair, it helps restore your hair to its original happy, curly state. Best part? It's only $10, and can be found here.

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Leave In Conditioning Spray — $20

Is your hair looking frizzy and dry but you have five minutes to get out the door? This spray has your back. Just lightly mist it all over the frizzy sections and gently run the product through your hair with your fingers. Voila! Back to perfect curls. You can buy this product here.

Eat your way through this country's greatest food — from your couch.

Call it the easily bored Gemini in me, but I'm constantly looking for new food to try. Usually, travel quenches my taste for new and exciting cuisines, but given the fact that international travel is not always a possibility, I've begun exploring alternatives.

In the interest of wanting to support the Black community and Black-owned businesses, and also wanting to try some of the country's greatest food without having to get off my couch, I started off (pessimistically) doing research, only to find that the options were vast.

24 Beauty And Style Brands Donating To The Fight To End Police Brutality Against Black People

From small, boutique brands to legacy fashion brands.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.
