Patrice from Chicago is a huge fan of essential oils and she say’s “Good Hair is YOUR hair!”

image4“My favorite go to products are almost anything Shea Moisture or Miss Jessie.”

image7But specifically my staple products include”… Shea Moisture Maunka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo and conditioner, Amika Nourishing Mask for a deep conditioner, Cantu Coconut Curling Cream for either my weekly flat twist-outs Or to finger coil and refresh daily, Jane Carter Solution Nourish and Shine for a daily moisturizer, and Miss Jessie’s Jelly Soft Curls or Quick Curl for a more defined curlier or wash and go style.”

image1“I recently started wearing my hair in a high puff, a wash and go that I lightly finger comb, or I’ll do flat twists on wet hair and take down for a more defined fro.”


Currently, “I only comb my hair ONCE a week to detangle with conditioner after I shampoo!”


I’m a “…HUGE fan of essential oils like lavender, peppermint, etc. Coconut Oil is a weekly essential for my pre-poo treatment and I apply Black Castor Oil to my edges regularly. I even have a personal mixture of my own in a little glass dropper bottle of Olive Oil, Black Castor Oil, Argan Oil, Lavender Oil, and Tea Tree Oil. I use this on both myself and my husband as a scalp oil once weekly (He has Locs!).”image3

“My hair is “Good Hair” because it’s Mine and it’s unique! The texture and freeness of my own curl pattern amazes me and makes me feel like a goddess! I used to say I had bad hair days when I was using creamy crack but now I don’t claim that! No days are bad because I’ve learned to embrace whatever tangle, coil, twist and knot comes my way!”
