Shopping. It's one of my favorite pastimes. I mean who doesn't like to shop? And if you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I frequent Target and the Dollar Tree a lot! So, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite items that I picked up during one of my recent mini shopping hauls.
Usually when I'm out shopping, my first stop is always the Dollar Tree. Why? That's the store I usually have a list for. I know by now what products they sell and follow a few Facebook groups and YouTubers who keep me updated on new product rollouts. My faves from this trip all happen to be hair products.
Moo asked is she could stop wearing her hair in braids in all the time and I agreed that she was old enough to start wearing her hair down. Plus, I felt like how can I help her embrace her natural curls if she nevers gets to show them off?! My mission was to find some products that we could experiment with and use to help make her hair easier to manage. Check out the products we found and have been using for the past week below.
- Lusti Organics Olive Oil Detangling Spray: Not only does this spray detangle but it also conditions and has amino proteins that help to strengthen the hair. While this spray does have few parabens in it, there other natural ingredients such as sage and rosemary in here as well. This stuff detangles like a charm on both damp and dry hair. I've already added this my shopping list for my next Dollar Tree trip.
- Lusti Naturals Argan Oil Curl Wave Twist Shaping Gel: I picked this gel because I wanted something that would help to define and hold her curls without making them hard as bricks. Also, Moo has a naturally dry scalp and I knew whatever gel we went with, it would need some sort of oil/moisturizer to avoid over drying and irritating her scalp and hair more. What like about this gel is that it does define her curls beautifully and helps to eliminate 90% of her frizz. I would say that this gel has a medium firm hold. This product definitely works better on mixed texture hair like Moo's as opposed to coarse hair like mine since I did experience some flaking and zero curl definition.
- Lusti Naturals Argan Oil Hair Moisturizer: I like to use the moisturizer after I spray on the detangler, but before I apply the shaping gel. Two quarter size squirts is usually all that she needs and I work in well with my fingers from root to tip. In my opinion, I feel that using the moisturizer helps to add a layer of protection between her hair and the shaping while also working with the detangling spray to further condition the hair. If you enjoy Pink Lotion, you'll probably like this product.
I feel like I spend so much time in Target that I should have my own little VIP section. JJ and I usually hit up the Target closest to us at least three to four days a week. Before you give me the side eye, let me say that I don't always purchase things on these trips. I just like to check out the clearance deals and I've been stalking their camera display since my camera has gone to an early grave. They have a really good Fugi on sale right now, but I'm a Canon girl. Maybe, if it goes on a double clearance markdown I will pick it up.
Anyways, I went to Target for the sole purpose of picking up some socks for Moo. Her feet have literally been growing like weeds. She requested socks that were either Frozen/Disney Princess related or purple. Here's what I found below.
On the plus side, I did manage to find socks that were Frozen/Disney Princess themed as well as purple. On the downside, they only had three pairs in her size. But they got a new truck in this week and that means I'll be back tomorrow to pick up at least three more pairs for next school year. She only has a few more days of school left and during summer break she lives in sandals.
