One of the greatest challenges when it comes to maintaining your hair is the in-between stages, where it’s not straight, but it’s not curly, either. Many people don’t know that curly hair is particularly prone to dryness and, and that the follicle itself even has a different shape than straight hair. These unique conditions mean that curly hair needs a little extra TLC when it comes to your regular routine. Harsh soaps and cleansers can strip the hair of moisture, which can lead to breakage and a poor curl pattern. That’s where these shampoos come into play! Many curlies have joined the “co-wash” method, which is a way of cleansing your hair using conditioner and some gentle scrubbing power, but this isn’t necessarily for everyone. Formulated with curls in mind, these shampoos can help you reclaim the curl, and start giving your hair the care it needs, without the drying effects of traditional shampoos. Our Cherie community has raved about many of these products, and we’re hoping you’ll love them as much as we do. P.S. Every product on this list is cruelty-free!Devacurl Low-Poo Original Mild Lather CleanserDevacurl is known for offering a complete line of curly hair products, in conjunction with their Devachan salons and stylist training, designed to help curly hair thrive. This “Low [sham]Poo” is gentle enough to keep your scalp and mane squeaky clean without drying or leaving behind any residue. Cherie says, YES!Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing ShampooOuidad is another leader in the curly hair space, offering a number of products designed to keep curls and waves in tip-top shape. This Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing shampoo is an excellent solution for when your hair is feeling, especially at one with nature. Kinky-Curly Come Clean, Natural Moisturizing ShampooKinky Curly Come Clean is strong enough to help de-gunkify your hair from all the products and oils which can weigh it down while remaining gentle enough to use on a regular basis. Formulated with mandarins, marigolds, and willow bark, we couldn’t ask for anything more.Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine ShampooShea Moisture is a leader in the curly hair space, and their Curl and Shine shampoo is a fan favorite. Containing Silk Proteins and Neem Oils, all of Shea Moisture’s products are fair trade and sourced wisdom (and shea butter!) from the company’s over 100 years history. Trader Joe’s Tea Tree OilA low-cost favorite, Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Oil shampoo is perfect for cleansing, especially when you’re dealing with product buildup or a vigorous workout. Invigorating tea tree oil leaves a fresh and clean impact, and the sulfate-free solution is one of the cheapest, quality options you’ll encounter. Pick up a bottle on your next grocery run.Jessicurl Gentle Lather ShampooJessicurl was founded by a frustrated curly girl who was tired of hating and battling her hair and decided to do something about it. She began making her own homemade products in her kitchen, and Jessicurl was born. Designed to help your hair look as great as it does right before you wash it (you know, curly, defined) Gentle Lather is a gentle solution to keeping your hair clean and scalp healthy.

Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰

I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!!
