Tried my Marie Dean
So far, love the Mango Papaya Conditioner. Used it as rinse out this morning. As Kam said, it soaked right in.
Still working with the curl cream and Yogurt smoothie. My hair has good volume and lasts all day. If I had longer hair, I would be able to get second day hair with these curl creams, I think. I used the Curling Cream and Yogurt Smoothie under UM. As Naturalista said, I am not sure UM is the best gel. For some reason it doesn't seem to play as nicely as it does with my SS products. I am going to try FHG tomorrow and see what happens.
I like the scent of the Lemon Yogurt Smoothie. The Curl cream is a bit too caramel for me. I like citrus scents.
The curl cream and yogurt smoothie have not had the curl enhancing properties as the SSCEJ does for me. But I do like the way my hair feels with the heavier moisture.
Just need to keep practicing.
Growing out my curls. White hair, fine to medium texture but a lot of it. Low to medium porosity. Botticelli curls -- 2c/3a mix. My hair loves protein.
