i have been using spiral solutions deeply decadent moisturizing treatment as a curl cream. after my leave in (currently using cj argan & olive oil conditioner), i blot excess water from my hair, then scrunch in the ss dd. it's been great -- what i like about ss dd is that it gives me shine, curl and softness. after reading ingredient lists on curl creams, it hit me that a lot of those ingredients are in ss d, so...... i tried it and i'm liking it very much. i also have found that cj and ss products work well together.
