Default Medium texture, normal porosity and elasticity...let's share!

I would love to see what products others with these properties are using along with favorite combos, techniques, etc.! I realize it also depends on where you live, weather, etc. I've tried reading other curlies/waives signatures to see who has similar properties but it can get overwhelming!!! I though it might be nice to have a thread where we could share this information. thank you in advance!!!

I will start first. I live in a dry climate where the average dew point is in the 30's year round, so I've recently tried using products without glycerin or where the glycerin is not high in the ingredients list and liking the results.

Cleansing:
shampoo bars
Co-wash with suave or other conditioners
CJ daily fix
Shampoo+coconut or babssu oil (jessicurl, KC come clean shampoo)
Mastey Traite cream shampoo
DevaCurl NoPoo
DevaCurl LowPoo
Darcy's botanicals cleansing conditioner

Conditioners: (use as rinse outs, DT and/or leave in)
GVP conditioning balm (LOVE)
Suave (variety)
Darcy's botanicals pumpkin seed conditioner (LOVE)
Tresseme naturals (moisture)
Cure care
Regis design olive oil conditioner *plan on repurchasing*
Kenra Moisturizing
Mop Top daily Co

Leave-in's

oils:

Camellia oil
Evoo
EO's serum
Babssu oil (currently experimenting with..so far, so good)
Mineral oil (plain J&J baby oil)
Argan oil (100%)
Sweet almond

These are products that I currently use or have used successfully in the past. I love to experiment! I don't have any problems or issues with build up or proteins, etc. I really need to and would like to narrow down my favorites to a few in each category ....maybe soon.



***currently testing out Mop C curl defining cream, LALSG and LALPSG.***
