Shea Moisture: People seem to like the shampoos but the leave-ins and stylers can be quite heavy for some people. I have very thick, medium textured kinky hair that did not like the Smoothie at all. Others love the Smoothie and the Milk can be popular.
Kinky Curly: Many people hate the Shampoo (Come Clean) but love the leave-in (Knot Today). The popular KCCC (Curling Custard) is a love or hate product. It takes awhile to get the hang of it in terms of how much to use. I prefer to use this in the warmer months.
If you have a Sally's I'd get the GVP conditioning balm. It's like the expensive Biolage brand but for way cheaper.
Other products to consider:
Conditioner: Tresemme Naturals, Yes to Cucumbers/Carrots
Gel: Herbal Essences Totally Twisted/Set Me Up, Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee, Ecostyler Krystal, Aussie Instant Freeze
oh wanted to add, you don't have to stick to one product line. I think very few people do this! I mix and match myself.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
shampoo: Redken Fresh Curls
rinse out: Elucence, CJ Curl Rehab
leave-in: SM Milk, Oyin Hair Dew
jellies/creams: UFD's CM, CJ CCCC
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG, CJ PP
