Hi! I believe we have the same type and texture of hair. I find jessicurl to be a good product if you want soft bouncy curls. Her deep conditioning treatment is the best deep conditioning I have ever tried. I haven't used anything else since I started with it. I like the "confident coils" with leave-in conditioner if you have very coarse hair. Otherwise, the kinky curly collection is great. Especially their leave-in conditioner and curl custard. Aren't lush products full of chloride and sulfates and stuff? My last tip if you feel like the CG method is too expensive, is to make your own flax seed gel. I know it sounds hippie, and I am the kind of person who believes in STRONG HOLD, but flax seed gel really works for me. You can find youtube videos on how to make it. It makes my hair more shiny, keeps the curls together and gives second day hair.
