Qhemet Biologics non cream products
So there are 3 more products that we've used of Qhem's that merit a mention
Coco Tree Detangling Ghee: We use this stuff to detangle my daughter's hair. It smells like chocolate and is the texture and consistency of Diaper Cream (you know--the stuff for baby's behind's!). While chocolate diaper cream may not sound too great if you (or your child) get tangles this is a great product. It not only makes the comb glide through your hair like butta' BUT it also imparts moisture. A 2 for 1 that smells like chocolate? Count me in! The way we use this is by sectioning off my daughter's hair and doing each section separately. Great stuff!
Honeybush Tea Soft gel: This has a very strong smell and I lurve it! It's very citrusy and it does linger a bit (the only one of her products I've tried that does!). It moisturizes and adds some curl defintion. Notice I said definition and not enhacement--it does not give me more curls but it does help to make the ones I have clump nicely. It does not have enough hold for my hair so I use some hard holding gel over it. It is also not strong enough to lay down my daughter's edges nor can we use it if she wants to rock a pony tail or braids to get her hair smoothly in...so this is used mostly by me. If any of you use something like Aubrey Organics Mandarin Magic Jelly or pure Aloe Vera Gel on your hair this could be used in place of it...the function is very close.
Olive and Honey Hydrating Balm: This stuff is NOT just honey--I promise! When you open it and feel it you will think it is JUST HONEY. It's not. It is sticky, does smell quite olive oil like, and has humectant properties...but when you put it on your hair it will melt right in. It provides yet more moisture and is a staple for my daughter for summer. We use this on my daughter's hair layered under Qhem's BRBC and we are able to get 4-5 day hair.
In the pics you can tell which one is the OHHB and which one is the gel--the OHHB is the one that looks runny just like honey on my finger! The Gel is very watery and just leaves a bit of moisture behind almost like you wet your finger.
