Your weekly PJ Buys

Plunky: I LOVE LOVE LOVE the KMF UM. It is my go to gel. BUT I don't think it did anything for AJJ.

Is Biolage medium hold, because that is what KMF UM is labeled as. Although, I think it has more hold than HETT, which is also labeled as medium hold.
FIA: 2b/cFii
normal porosity
i picked up some pantene mousse, FOTE gel and giovanni TTT shampoo (i've only tried the conditioner) from walmart yesterday.

i'm trying not to buy too much, but i really want to try the Jane Carter Nourish & Shine. i might just get it because of the sale on vitamin shoppe.

someone stop me...
2b/c, med./coarse texture, med./high density & mod. porous http://public.fotki.com/wavyR/
LOVE tresemme naturals, suave pomegranate, ecostyler, HESMU, BRHG, KCCC, CIAB, CCCClite, KY Jelly & JCN&S.
HATE soy protein.





I didn't technically buy it this week, but I just got it a few days ago - SS Curl Enhancing Jelly and SS Decadent Deep Treatment. YAY!

I got 4 sample bottles of Kiss My Face (conditioner and upper management gel) from my local health food store--they were on clearance for 50 cents each! So $2 for the lot of them Yippee!

PM Round Trip (got it free with my Ulta rewards woot!) -- my hair dresser used this on me, and I'm really digging it for all in one. I just use a leave in, and then this, and nothing else. I got the tiny sample size one at the salon to try and I've used it quite a bit. Kinda nice.

I was finally able to order from Darcy's Botanicals so I ordered the new Pumpkin conditioner, more curling jelly, and the new spray leave in for fine hair. She's sending me samples of the Tucuma Whip and the new Wild Plum Twisting cream. I can't ait to try them!

I also got a new Diffuser (Conair Ionic Curl Fusion) that I'm loving.

Still like the dryer although not as much as my regular bowl diffuser..but it is good for when you want to Scrunch a lot and get the job done quickly..it works great for my daughter as well!

I didn't like the PM Round Trip and sold it on the swap board a while ago.

I still love the Darcy's stuff...pumpkin condish, natural coils curling jelly, natural coils spray leave in, and the coconut and aloe moisture pudding along with tucuma butter whip are very staple'y at my house Love her stuff! Although I know some others have tried and it doesn't work it all does wonderful for me..I think my hair likes heavier products.

AJJ, how do you use the NCCJ?? I tried it and it was just a train wreck! I applied it to damp hair (not wet) over a leave in.

I usually do the leave in then the jelly and my hard holding gel over the top then scrunch just a bit with my Curl Ease towel...not too much..then I diffuse.

My hair has to be really wet going into diffusing or I get strange curls and scrunch I can't get out!

Okay, I will try it again over soaking wet hair. I liked the smell, so I wanted it to work for me.

I went out to buy a few things, but ended up not seeing what I was wanting, so I ended up buying some Live Clean Argan Oil Smooth and Shine Cream to try out and a LIFE brand Lime Oil Reconstructive Hair Mask at Shoppers Drugmart...it was on sale for $1.29 instead of $2.49.

I'm a little off-date (I haven't been lurking the 2 forums lately), but two weeks ago, I bought HETT gel. I love it! Plus, so cheap. I'm not a PJ (still a teen, I don't have the money:P) but I have a list of the products I just wish I could buy...

Curl Junkie Coffee-Coco Curl Creme

Curl Junkie Curl Rehab (Strawberry Ice Cream flavored.. mmmmm.)

Curl Junkie Daily Fix Cleansing Conditioner

Curl Junkie Hibiscus and Banana Deep Fix Moisturizing Conditioner and Honey Butta

Giovanni 50/50 Shampoo (not too expensive, plus from checking out the Natural aisles at my local grocery store, they sell it there, yay!)

Jessicurl Rocking Ringlets and Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment

Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Milk (I saw raves about this on a different forum)

Kinky Curly Curling Custard and Knot Today (oh my, ever since I joined NC...)

Lustrasilk Shea Butter and Mango Cholesterol ($2.99?! I think I'm going to pick this up at Sally's this week.)

Anyways, there is my list of products. Mostly CJ lol But my products I have now (two from Sally's, one from Wal-mart) are still good.
mod cg since feb. 18th, 2010
2b/2c, pretty porous and slightly elastic.

I got Herbal Essenses Body Envy and Loreal Vive Pro Hydra-Gloss for Dry Hair, though this one has the a-cone...all of them did, but I have seen the Nutri-Gloss once without cones. The a-cone is questionable in this one though...details on my purchases and question in my post here:

I've had AOWC for a week but I don't like the smell that much, they were out of AOHR which is what I really wanted, go figure.

Yesterday I got Curl Junkie Daily Fix & Coffee-Coco Curl Creme. I'm in love with CJDF, not sure on the CCCC yet.
