I like the Structura lotion a lot. It gives definition and shine but very little hold. For hold you need to put a gel over it. I always keep it around. It's expensive but last forever because it's a huge bottle.
I also like the Deep Therapy Masque. It has a cone but it worked well to deep condition my hair. However, there are other deep conditioners that work just as well without cones (if you are avoiding cones).
I also enjoyed Botanical Boost.
I absolutely hate Curl Reform which makes my hair sticky.
If you go to the product review section, you can get a lot more opinions.
If you use any of the products, I'd be interested in your result.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
