Read and research the ingredients and look at what your hair needs based on its properties and your local climate. The Jessicurl has behentrimonium which is great for slip plus several oils/ butters some of which contain fatty acids that may be absorbed into damaged/ highly porous hair. It is not packed with humectants, the water attracting ingredients, nor proteins if your hair does well with those.

There are loads of great science-based articles here on Naturally Curly by 'curl chemist' Tonya McKay, plus some good stuff on the Natural Haven blog.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.

Treatments: Komaza Matani, coconut oil, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss ultimate volume, Inecto argan
