It is with much regret and sadness that I must inform you that the My Honey Child Caribbean Hair Creme (which I first reviewed last September) is no more. Remember, I was so excited to find a more affordable alternative to Lush R&B (which I still love, but have not purchased since I used up the one container I had of it).
So now what?
The harsh reality is that products go and come. Especially products that are not widely distributed and get most of their sales via the internet. But my Caribbean Hair Creme is quickly vanishing and I need to find a new moisturizer to try when it runs out.
Here are my requirements:
- Must be able to use on wet or dry hair.
- Under $20.
Armed with my very strict criteria, I took to the internet this weekend to see what my options are. I first looked at the My Honey Child site to see if I could find an alternative there. There are two products that just might work from My Honey Child. The first, which sounds incredible, is the Type 3 Hair Cream. The site describes the product simply as “a control cream for Type 3 hair.” What worries me about the Type 3 cream though is that on the site it is described as being for people who need a creme that will provide 75% control and 25% moisture. I need optimum moisturization, so maybe it’s not for me.
The second My Honey Child product that may work is the Afrikoko Styling Lotion. The Styling lotion is probably more up m y alley. According to the website, the styling lotion is for, “People with hair that desires a styling lotion that imparts immediate moisture.” Me! That’s me!
Other products I’m considering are the Motions Hydrate My Curl Pudding, Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Coil Moisturizing Souffle, and Cantu Shea Butter daily oil moisturizer.
Right now I am leaning toward the Afrikoko Styling Lotion or the Motions Hydrate My Curls Pudding.
Motions makes some great products and I used to use Motions moisturizer and oil sheen on my relaxed hair. It is definitely at the better price point and the chances of it being discontinued are a lot less than that of the My Honey Child products. Though really, I do love them.
Once I make a decision, I’ll let all of you curly girls know and be sure to post a review.
