Hi all! I've been lurking here for a while, and have been attempting the CG method for some time now, but I have not been super successful.
I don't have a lot of money, so once I buy a product I use it til it's gone, which means if it doesn't work well I can't try something else for a while! But, as it is right now, I am running out of my Burt's bees shampoo and my SheaMoisture conditioner and looking for something new; and hence the title, I am looking for cruelty-free products.
I think I'm a type 2a, with high porosity, medium density, and long hair (mid-back). I currently live in Florida where it's usually humid.
So I'm looking for a new shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner (currently using SheaMoisture curl style milk), a volumizer, and anything else that might help that I don't yet know about!
My biggest problem is, that once the ends of my hair get to the point where they are starting to curl a bit, my scalp is starting to get oily (this usually happens about a week-week and a half after washing). And after I wash my hair, even if I don't use any shampoo, I can't seem to get curls to happen until my hair has been unwashed for some time.
So I would appreciate ANY advice, as I am about ready to just give up and start straightening again. If you use products and don't know if they're cruelty-free, please tell me anyway and I can look them up!! Thank you all!
