Empties Report: Part 3!

I thought I’d be done whittling down my hair product stash by now, but it’s taking a bit longer than I thought it would.  I am getting closer to the end of this process.  After this report there should be just one more report left before I can share what products I’ll be keeping as my staple hair products.  Until then check out my thoughts on the products above that I’ve finished over that past few weeks.

The Aubrey Organics GPB Balancing Protein Conditioner will absolutely be my new protein treatment.  My hair feels so soft and supple after using this product.  And it doesn’t matter whether I’m doing a roller set or air drying my hair, it always gives me great results.  The Jamaican Black Castor Oil I’ve actually already repurchased but that’s because of the Castor Oil Challenge that I’m in.  I’ll have a better review after I’ve completed that challenge.  The Avocado Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil are great oils for the hair and skin.  I used the avocado oil on my skin and it was ok (but I prefer the Shea Moisture Skin Oil that I reviewed in my last empties report).  The Olive Oil I’ve been using on my daughter’s hair lately and it’s been great.  I will definitely be repurchasing the Olive Oil for her hair.  Finally the Generic Value Products Concentrated Leave-in Treatment is a great protein leave-in treatment that works really well with on your hair when you are heat styling.  A little goes a long way with this one.  And the only reason I won’t be repurchasing it is because I prefer a moisturizing leave-in treatment on most wash days.

Have you used any of these hair products? 
What are your thoughts and opinions?

  1. Aubrey Organics GPB is definitely one of my favorites, It makes my hair really soft and I am able to detangle my hair as well.


  2. Did you replace Redken Extreme Strength Builder Fortifying Mask with Aubrey Organics GPB Balancing Protein Conditioner…say it isn't so? How is the Aubrey GPB? Thanks to you I tried the Redken protein treatment and it's like butter in my hair, it's a little expensive but so amazing.

    Your hair always look so healthy and beautiful. Love your blog.


  3. Yeah, I saw you used it in your recent wash day post. I really like it, too.


  4. Thanks, Karen! I think so. :$ I love them both. They both are moderate protein treatments and they both contain ceramides but the price differential is about $6. The Redken is amazing and so is Aubrey Organics…Maybe I'll alternate between the two. Now that you mention the Redken, I'm not sure that I want to give it up completely…


  5. All of what you list are also my staples with the exception of Potion 9. I've never tried this product line. I'll hold off for now because I too like a moisturizing leave in. I'll let my protein treatments suffice for my protein.


  6. It is a great leave-in treatment for those interested in a protein leave-in and/or use heat tools often. Thanks for commenting, Jay!
