I know some naturals admit to being a PJ (product junkie). However, I can't say that I suffer too much from this affliction:-) I admit that when I'm in Ulta, Target, or even a Bargain store I walk down the hair aisle just to check out new products. And every blue moon I will try something new. But, this is one product that I tried and is now a staple.
I started using Hollywood Beauty Olive Oil Creme (HBOOC) while transitioning but, I wasn't paying attention to its effect on my hair. But, when I was completely natural I would use this product on my hair about 4 times a week whenever I would braid my hair for the night. After about a week I noticed that my hair and scalp would be so moisturized. This product does not experience build-up. (For example, have you ever scratched your scalp with certain products and had all this gunk under your nails??? Well that doesn't happen with this product.) Someone even asked me once how I get my hair to look so moisturized and I will have to say that this is one of the products that helps in that department. Another great use for this product is that it helps with my nightly detangling session. I will put just a dab of this on my ends and gently detangle any fairy knots that may have occured throughout my day. And I have to say that I have very little shedding/loss of hair.
I usually purchase this product from my local bargain store, which is called Maxway (part of the Bargain Town chain). It only costs me $4 at Maxway. However, I have noticed this product at my local CVS also but, it is about a dollar and some change higher there. You have to admit though, that this is a great value.
