September monthly buys

This month we didn't buy too much but that's a good thing.

Here's what we picked up:

Lou Ana pure coconut oil - we got this in the baking section of Walmart instead of the one they normally carry because they said its not longer available. I haven't used this on her hair yet. Just to make some yummy sweet potato fries!

The first thing I noticed upon opening was the smell. There's no smell! Which I am not use to. I found out this is refined coconut oil which means its impurities were screened out which removed its distinctive odor. Prior to this we used extra virgin coconut oil that was UNrefined. Soooo I'm a little hesitant to use it on her hair but I will for sure update and let you know how it goes.

Goody Ouchless shower comb: the pink comb we purchased from Sally's broke within weeks! The teeth just began to snap (see pic below). I picked this up at Walmart as well. So far so good. Its very sturdy, too which I love.

po lil tink tink

Desert Essence 100% pure Jojoba Oil - This purchase is the beginning of a bunch of other oils and essential oils I plan to buy for mixes. I have not used it yet but decided to buy this first because it was the cheapest 6.99-8.99 and I have also heard Jojoba oil is the best carrier oil for essential oils. I grabbed this from our local grocery store in the organic section.

Confetti nail polishes - purchased at CVS for $1.99ea . I got Happy Birthday (a dark glittery purple) and Lonesome Dove (a light grey) will post reviews soon.

I have that same comb you just bought. I keep it in the shower to run through hair while the conditioner is in it. It works great and is super steady.

YUM--sweet potato fries!
