It's been quite some time before we've found ourselves caught in a hair heist in which a product captures and charms our coiffures. And while this could be potentially dangerous, we are thrilled to have found a worthy adversary.
No matter whatever superlatives we choose to describe our crowning glory—curly, wavy, coiled, straight, or a combination of all four — we are game. We are up for the challenge and ready to relish the rewards of our risktaking!
And now, we're ready to reveal the costars in our own personal crown affairs. Don't worry about robbing a Monet in order to afford these mane masterminds as they are all budget-friendly.
The costars in our crown affairs are as follows:
Beauty Newbie LA's Crown Affair Costar: Creme of Nature Argan Oil Intensive Conditioning Treatment $1.79
"Creme of Nature Intensive Conditioning Treatment is thick, revitalizing and has been my go-to since forever! And now that Creme of Nature added Argan Oil to their products, I've taken my obsession to new, satisying heights. I love how insanely moisturized and luminous my strands feel, especially after I've gotten a touchup. I've also found that it makes for an excellent reconstructor as well!"
Team 20/20 Chelsea's Crown Affair Costar: Palmer's Olive Oil Conditioning Hair Spray $4.79
“I love this product! I use it after my wash and conditioning routine, and to add life to pressed hair. It softens, adds shine, prevents breakage and smells great.”
The Minimalist Terez's Crown Affair Costar: Taliah Waajid Protective Mist Bodifier $7.99
"I am a big fan of the products I've tried in the Taijah Waajid line, and the Protective Mist Bodifier is my 'holy grail' moisturizer for highly textured natural hair. This leave-in conditioner has a creamy consistency which really saturates dry hair and makes detangling a breeze. The bottle is fitted with a neat spray nozzle which makes it easy to distribute evenly throughout loose hair, locs, or braids. Best of all, it's available at my local drugstore at a reasonable price!"
Access Hollywood Nalo's Crown Affair Costar: Proclaim Natural 7 Oil $7
"I love this product! It is a multi-purpose oil that you can use on your hair to make it more manageable and add luster. Mix with your lotion and apply to moisturize your skin, put a few drops for a luxurious bath. The product smells so good and is budget-friendly."
Editor-in-Chief Tracey's Crown Affair Costar: Aubrey Organics NuStyle Detangler & Shine Booster $9.95
"I love leave-in conditioners and detangling hair products. I use Aubrey NuStyle Detangler after shampooing to detangle and strengthen my hair. And I like to freshen my hair with this light spray between washes because it adds natural shine and has a lovely fresh scent."
