Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum so pardon me if I'm not following the rules correctly.
I need some help so I'm reaching out to my fellow curly haired ladies for advise.
I have been using for years and years Alberto European Curls a Waves Moussing Gel (along with a creme and curl defining finishing spray and a diffuser and curl enhancing shampoo and conditioner).
I have been a long time customer to only find they have discontinued my product. Now this hair moussing/gel was perfect because my hair always came out soft and full and non greasy, flaky, sticky etc. I've tried contacting Unilever and they can't offer me any other products that are similar. They encouraged me to try the new Smoothly Does It Curl defining mouse. I've tried this product two ways, air dry and diffusing to only find my hair is stiff, sticky while being half flat and half frizzy.
I'm on a budget so I can't afford salon priced products. My hair is long and layered.
Does anyone have any suggestions in Canada of products that would be a great replacement?
