New Hair Care Layout and Products at CVS

I have two CVS stores that I frequent.  One of them recently got a new layout of their beauty section, including some new brands!

The other CVS in my town sells DevaCurl, but now this one does too, plus they have mini 1.5 oz. sizes of several products.

$7.29 for the no/low-poos and $10.49 for the styling products is pretty expensive when you consider that you can get a no-poo, a conditioner, and a styling product in the mini kits for only $12 on the DevaCurl website, Sephora, Ulta, or some other retailers, but if you have some CVS Extra Bucks or a percent off coupon, it could be worth it.  (Remember, if you use both, the percent off will come off of the total after the Extra Bucks are deducted.)

CVS has always sold Shea Moisture, Maui Moisture, and Carol’s Daughter, but they moved the shelves.

They also sell Renpure cleansing conditioners.  I bought the Vanilla Mint and Lavender ones in the packets about two months ago at this same CVS.  For me, one packet lasts for two uses.  Unfortunately, it looks like they are no longer sold here 😦

In the ethnic hair care area, there are more Shea Moisture products, plus brands such as As I Am, Cantu, Mixed Chicks, and The Mane Choice. I’ve never used any of these, but maybe sometime.  Just because my hair is wavy and a bit thin doesn’t mean some of them can’t work for me 🙂

My apologies for the photos not being so great and some product labels not facing forward; whereas I’ve taken photos of the shelves at other stores, I felt awkward doing so at this trip to CVS since someone else was in the hair care aisles.  I’m a bit shy to explain to anyone that I have a small-time hair blog!

Note: Prices may vary by store location.  In fact, I just noticed from these photos that the DevaCurl products at this CVS are a little cheaper than at the other CVS in the same town: $21.75 at this store vs. $22.49 at the other one.

My Hair Feels Great!

After about a week and a half of having no hot water in my house, the technician finally came over this morning and fixed our water heater.  Of course, after the gym today, I took a nice warm shower!  Lately, I haven’t had a chance to use the hair products that I’d like, due to the increased difficulty in bathing, so I was happy to use my Live Clean shampoo and conditioner tonight for some much-needed moisture.

After washing, I used my Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla leave-in conditioner and for a change, did not comb it through; I simply sprayed it all over my hair so as to keep my freshly washed waves relatively untouched.  Then, I scrunched in my Göt2b Kinkier Gloss ‘n Define Curl Cream (discontinued, unfortunately) and finished off with a little bit of grapeseed oil mixed with a tiny amount of Nature’s Truth Good Nite essential oil on my ends and baby hairs.  Although applying oil all over my hair can make it look flat once it’s dry, it works well on my ends, plus I find that applying oil on my baby hairs when wet helps them lay down, preventing the sides of my head from looking bald.

Ha, I wish.  These photos were taken with my LG G3 phone.

Yes, I’m so fancy that I keep my grapeseed oil in a huge plastic seltzer bottle, of which I didn’t even bother to remove the label!  As for that little Justin Bieber perfume atomizer…

…that’s where I keep my grapeseed oil, with several drops of the Good Nite essential oil mixed in.  I also spray some on my skin before going to sleep.  I love multi-functional products.
