Default Curlesque anyone?

Has anyone used Curlesque? I haven't heard too much about it and I'm really interested in whether it works well or not.

I have tried their shampoo and their light mousse.

The mousse is great, although it has cones. I think my hair can handle a small amount of cones.

The shampoo I have tried, but not enough to say how good/bad it is yet.

Sad to hear that it has cones! I know some curly girls say that cones are okay as long as they are water soluble. I've just been so curious about the products because I haven't heard much about it. I like mousses but my hair gets too crunchy when I use mousse

Default Curlesque anyone?

I've tried almost the entire line (I'm modified CG so occasional cones aren't an issue for me).

The only CG friendly product is the Strong Mousse, which I love. If I layer it I find that it has enough hold that I don't need to use a gel. Dries with crunch but scrunches out nicely. My signature pic is using Strong Mousse and Amplifier.

Amplifier has a cyclo-cone, which is not water soluble but is supposed to evaporate from the hair during the drying process (there's an article on this on NC.com). This is an HG product for me.

Leave-In is super not CG (contains dimethicone), but another HG for me- keeps my hair amazingly tangle-free during 4 and 5 hour martial arts training sessions, which is the only time I'll use it. As a note, I'm finding almost as good results with As I Am Leave-In, which is CG friendly.

Shampoo is okay. Nothing really noteworthy. Not CG friendly- sulfate-free but contains cones (I don't remember if it was dimethicone or amodimethicone)

Conditioner didn't really thrill me because it was too thick and had no slip at all. Not CG friendly (dimethicone).

Your curls are absolutely AMAZING! Thank you for the run down of each product, I can stop being so curious about it now. Too bad about all of the cones but I supposed a little cone every now and then doesn't hurt anyone :-)

Thank you so much! I'm glad I could help. It almost helps me justify my horrible PJ tendencies :-)

I think we all have the PJ tendencies! I'm on a constant quest to find some HG items and that is my way of justifying being a PJ, lol.
