    II don't really have a list of HGs yet but one I discovered a few years ago. It makes my waves extra wavy and just wow~ Unfortunately I was out of it for nearly two years when they stop carrying it in my local drugstore. I did ordered it online from the US once but it was twice the cost so I couldn't keep doing it. But I just found out that they recently restocked it last week locally! Hopefully it stays!

    I've not exactly had the experience of finding a holy grail product, but rather a routine - my hair seems to thrive more from a low-maintenance but consistent daily/weekly routine more than any specific product. That said, here are the things that best support my HG routine:

    -henna
    -clear sulphate shampoos & thick conditioners with light 'cones (Pantene Ice Shine has been brilliantly reliable)
    -acidic rinses
    -Tangle Teezer (dry) & moderately wide-toothed plasic comb (wet)

    I'm in an area of Canada where winters are a deep freezer and summers are a sauna

    This is cool to read through everybody's favorites!

    I live in south US on the Gulf of Mexico. It's *extremely* humid here (80-100% humidity April-November). My hair LOVES the humidity! I try to take advantage of the surrounding moisture. It really gives my curls a boost! I've noticed a trend in my haircare over the last couple years, which seems to be largely effected by the time of year. I rely on more cones and oils December-March, while we have low humidity days. The rest of the year, my hair looks and behaves better using oils sparingly and less cones or modified ones.

    Products that have stood the test of time for me:

    Tresemme Naturals moisture conditioner (rinse out or leave in)
    Aussie Moist (fav winter condish)
    Kinky Curly Knot Today (as last conditioner in WCC, works as a detangler, I rinse it out!)
    Clear, non moisturizing shampoos (no oils, cones, or proteins. May or may not have SLS): Kinky Curly Come Clean, Paul Mitchell Tea Tree, Suave Clarifying (diluted)
    Water based, protein free gels: LA Looks Sport Gel (the blue one), Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Styling Gel, Kinky Curly Spiral Spritz

    US, cold dry winters, hot usually humid summers.

    TIGI Bed Head Superstar sulfate-free shampoo. It actually lifts my flat hair up off my scalp a little bit! I've only tried 3 other sulfate-free shampoos and they were nowhere near as good, I don't want to try any more.

    ROO with mineral oil, just 3 drops for me so far.

    Product-wise I really like Lįnza Healing Pure clarifying shampoo, otherwise I am still searching for a holy grail regular mild SLS-free shampoo!

    Wait..honey under arms? Like a deoderant? Or soap-like? Intriguing!
