    Default Favorite products 2019 new and rediscovered

    Hi all,
    we were talking about thread like this so there it is

    For me the things I liked the most this year and repurchased multiple times are:

    Alterra charcoal shampoo (available in Rossmann's, cruelty free, silicone free, SLS free, vegan brand)
    Garnier Fructis banana hair food mask (well known by all now)
    Nature Box secret repair leave-in cream (this is Schwarzkopf line available in European countries - vegan and proclaimed to be sustainable)

    Honourable mention:
    Cantu curl activator cream (this is great leave-in even for my straight and fine hair)

    Generally speaking I think I had a very good hair year. I started using SLS free shampoos again, some protein containing products, some silicone products and it all is working for me for now. I think it's because I rotate products and clarify regularly.
    Please share your discoveries and products you started using again for 2019

    That would be my list of the most noteworthy products of the year.

    Most of my new product experimentation has occurred in November and December. I used my old faithfuls most of the year, but the favorites I discovered so far:

    - Shea Moisture JBCO mask
    - rose hair elixir from the Innate Life
    -Aussie Miracle Moist conditioner

    I have some new things coming so I might have a few washes to experiment with yet.

    I've been focusing on using things up, so nothing really stands out, except for the Garnier Fructis Hairfood line! Awesome discovery for me. Love the papaya and the banana one.

    For shampoo my Pantene Aqua Light. I recently just picked up 6 new bottles. They had them in one store in my entire city.

    Oooh I finally found a shampoo my scalp actually *likes* so that's a HUGE win Dr Organic Aloe Vera (and hopefully the variations with the same base formula, that would be cool).

    HG conditioner hands down Faith in Nature BB Rose and Neroli it contains amino acids which I think my hair really likes; it holds texture better than when not using any protein, but also never experienced protein overload.

    Just started the Ultimate Blends Coconut hair food mask; the jury is still out for long-term use but the slip is incredible so it earned itself a special mention!

    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    Old favourites I will use now they are on the PETA cruelty-free list are Aussie, Dove and Herbal Essences.

    New favourites are the Aldi version of Aussie, the OGX bonding plex range, Suma lavender shampoo, and Garnier Ultimate Blends maple (pleasant surprise because I haven't liked any others in the UB range).
