Beeduh, your hair is looking so beautiful! It's so curly! Your hair is red/strawberry blonde? (I don't trust my monitor when it comes to color). That's always been my favorite hair color.

My local dew points have been "optimal" but my hair is dry as a bone. In these conditions I can use pretty heavy products without them getting tacky or heavy. The Creme brule moisturizes, but I need the Goddess Curls to help with definition and frizz. Creme brulee isn't as heavy as Coffee-Coco CC, yet it does feel "weightier" on my hair. I find that these Curls products aren't great for layering day after day, and my hair does best if it's at least rinsed before I reapply the Brule and/or gel. They are both terrific for definition, and they help keep my hair from clumping into big boingy things.

This paste is unusual, because it seems to liquify when I add a little water. It's not really a "heavy" product, if its diluted, but there's no way it would be possible for me to use it on lots of dry hair. I like to add weight to my curls, though, because I want my hair to look longer. When wet, the longest parts of my hair are about an inch or two below my shoulders. Today, before I added the Passion Fruit Paste (wet), my hair was hanging above my jawline. When I scrunch about a teaspoon of the paste in, because of the water, I think, my hair absorbs enough of it so that it doesn't just coat my hair. However, on my dry hair it's as sticky as honey. Stickiness can cause knots in my hair that have to be cut out, so I use the paste with lots of water.

Does your Target have SheaMoisture? I've tried only the refresher spray so far, and it's amazing. I almost bought the Smoothie yesterday, but I was worried about it being heavy.

Have you tried any of the Moroccanoil products? I'm curious as to what you think of
them...

Now I'm working back to my natural hair color which is blonde (probably dark blonde now but my hair lightens up a lot in the summer & I'm getting more highlights put in at the end of this month).

Anyways, I get good curl and small clumps with just the Curls Goddess Curls gel. But my hair just feels weird when I use both the gel and creme. Neither gets all the frizz either. I normally have frizzy spots in the back of my head when I use these products. Right now, they have been sentenced to time under my sink.

I have tried a lot of the Shea Moisture line. I love using the souffle and smoothie on supper wet hair when I need more moisture. I also like the milks for thick and thin hair. I haven't tried any of the poos or conditioners. Oh, the souffle and smoothie will stretch your curl a bit. I use small amounts of both (I put both products into separate travel tubes so I could tell how much I was actually using). So you might like them together.

I love the CCCC and don't find it real heavy. I don't use a lot either. I also like to put a little bit of PP over it.

What are your hair properties? I can't see signatures on my phone.
