Hubby's Products Part 2

I thought I would do a little follow up post since my husband has tried some more products in his quest to switch over to products with natural ingredients.

First, here are weeks 4 and 5 of his beard growth; it's actually becoming a beard to speak of.

Along with the beard balm and oil I mentioned in the previous post he has started using some natural bar soaps to wash his face and body. The first one he tried was Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Soap which worked just fine. 

However he is kind of buying into the hype of certain products promoted by this YouTuber he loves, so the next soap he ordered was Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap
This soap has a very interesting aroma; instead of smelling like fresh pine needles like I thought it would, it smells just like barbecuing mesquite wood chips. A little odd to me but he likes it; I think it makes him feel very rugged and manly.
Now that his beard is long enough to comb he's purchased this nice wooden Repsol Care comb and boar bristle brush set which look really cool and are good quality. Nothing quite like a good face brushing, haha.
As for his curly locks, he's tested a few shampoos and conditioners that are free of sulfates, parabens and silicones. At first we thought we might have to order some pricy specialty hair care products online which would not be very practical or cost effective in the long run, but we discovered that Walmart's "natural hair" section actually has a decent selection. I don't know why we hadn't explored it more before; it's amazing how one can get in the rut of using the same products over and over when there could be something better out there.
First he tried  Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula but apparently the conditioner wasn't the texture he was looking for. He said it was extremely difficult to run his fingers or a comb through his hair like he normally does. It did smell wonderfully coconutty though.
Then he tried Cantu Shea Butter products and seems to really like those; he'll probably stick with them for a while.
He even made a pilgrimage to Sally Beauty to purchase shower caps for his bi-weekly coconut oil treatments, and some other various fancy combs. Of course the ladies in there oohed and ahhed over his curl. I'm pretty sure the man has more hair products than do now, but I sure think he looks great!

Thanks for reading and if we come across any more miracle products I'll let you know. Added any new products to your daily routine lately?
