products, but 1st...SNOWED IN!!!

These are the products I've tried/used/or am currently using. Paul mitchell awapuhi moisture mist. I use this(usually diluted) every now and again when I need some extra moisture. Coco-knotty dreadlock conditioning spray, from knotty boy,is my absolute favourite. It smells heavenly, and is a moisturiser with hemp seed oil, silk amino acids and vitamins. I use it diluted 50/50 and it still works it's magic. Herbal Mist spray is a mixture of 20 herbs and oils, from Healing Herbs. I tried a little of this in a homemade spritz, but due to the high oil content have decided to wait until my locs are more mature. However it contains the stuff I would love in a spritz. So if your locs are desert dry,you can try one of these. If your locs are babies, then very diluted awapuhi moisture mist is the one to use bc of it's high water content. Dr Bronners MAGIC Lavender Coconut organic skin lotion is a new find. I've experimented with making my own lotions, but was looking for something light, I have my own shea butter mixes. I was amazed to find a hand +body lotion made of organic/essential oils -I mean, this contains:coconut oil, jojoba oil,avocado oil,canabis seed oil,vit E, lavender oil... what more could a girl ask for? I had to get it. Infact, if I had traditional locs maintained by twisting I'd probably try using this. But that's just me, I like all things natural especially if they're organic.It's got a lovely light feel and a fresh lavenderish scent.
What is the world coming to?

I had decided to blog about a few products, but I must show some pics of our big SNOW, which started last night and continued all day. It's apparently the worst in 18yrs. Schools are closed, buses and tubes have been grounded, everyone's being advised to stay put. So both DDs are stuck at their friends' houses for day 2. I was about to venture out to get 2nd DD but she called back and said 'mum, the snow is coming down so heavy, don't drive'

That's what we woke up to here in the Southeast part of the US this past Sunday...snow in March. I love using natural products too.
