I am a 3b/c, and I love honey mixed with conditioner, all left in (so far I've tried it w/ Elucence and MOP).
I notice that it encourages my 3C curls rather than my 3b ones. I get these tight, shiny pencil-size spirals, hardly any frizz, and overall lower-volume. I think the lower-volume is bc/ it makes my curls more compact. I feel that it makes my hair appear darker, not lighter. The less frizz I have, the darker and shinier my hair looks. My favorite thing about honey is that my curls are still pretty "together" the next day. In my album, the 2nd one, I show 2nd-day honey/elucence. I liked it even better the first day.
