ESSENCE Poll: What Old-School Hair and Beauty Product Do You Swear By?

If you're traveling with a girlfriend or your hubby, check beforehand to see if there are any items you can share for a few days during your trip.  This will eliminate bag bulk for the both of you and ultimately makes more room in your suitcase for cool souveneirs or an extra pair of fly shoes!

Let's face it: experimenting with new hair and beauty products can be tricky, especially if you're dealing with ingredients you've never tried before. That new shampoo could leave your hair extra dry, and that facial oil with exotic ingredients that everyone's talking about could leave your sensitive skin hideously greasy.

Let's not forget the many hair moisturizer's you've tried over the years, only to find that your hair is happiest with the grease your mother used to slather on your hair. And despite all you've read about "bad" ingredients like petroleum, mineral oil and sulfates, somehow the saying "better the devil you know" rings true in your case.

In all, its not easy getting out of a hair and beauty product comfort zone. Are there still some old-school products that you refuse to let go of? We're talking to you religious Vaseline and Let's Jam! user. Share your thoughts and comments with us below.
