Newer 3A, Product Recommendations, Pretty Please
 
I hope this isn't a tall order. It probably is. :)

I have mostly 3A hair, with some 3B
Texture: Medium-Fine
Porosity: Normal
Elasticity: Normal

I'd like natural/organic products
I'd like frugal products, where possible
I am perfectly happy to order online or buy in store

I'm looking for a co-washing conditioner
A regular conditioner to leave in
Gel
Recommendations on what to put in for second-day hair.

:flower:

Some of my favorite natural/organic lines are Curly Kinks, Darcy's Botanicals and Shea Moisture. CK and DB you have to order online, but the SM is available at Target, Walgreens, and several other drugstores. SM is probably slightly less expensive, but they are all in about the same price range. Here are my favorite products from these lines:

DB pumpkin seed condish (super moisturizing - I like it as a RO or DT)
DB cream gel
DB curl styling cream (more like a butter - I use this as a sealer/finishing product)
DB also makes a cleansing conditioner, but I haven't tried this yet

CK clean cream (cleansing condish)
CK satin roots LI/detangler
CK coil jam (natural gel)
CK curlycue renew (deep condish)

SM curl control low poo
SM curl and style milk (LI)
SM also makes a curl enhancing smoothie (curl cream) and souffle (gel type product) but I haven't tried these.

My favorite no-poo is Curl Junkie Daily Fix, and I also love their conditioners, but it's a little pricier. I also like to use SN for a co-wash (not really natural, I know, but so cost effective and works well for me).

Many people also like the Kinky Curly Line (also available at Target). I like the KCCC, but the KCKT was not moisturizing enough for me and I found the sulfate free shampoo really stripping.

HTH :)

My hair likes the more natural products from the online, boutique type companies. Like many, I rotate products. My hair has always satiated on products--even back in my shampoo/conditioner only days. I wet, use a rinse out and style every day. Seldom let myself use any one product more then once in five days, it that. My current favorites (like many of us) are listed in my signature.

My curls are 3A

Garnier Frutis Sleek & Shine...my hair seems to like a weekly shampoo
Tresemme Naturals conditioner- Co Wash & Leave In
Garnier Frutis Pure Hold Gel
I love grapeseed , apricot, jojoba oils to seal with (bought these at GNC store)

My hair is also 3a/3b. Check out my signature...everything on there is pretty inexpensive and the giovanni and aubrey organics are organic.

See my signature as well :sunny:

For "all-natural" you may want to try some products from Jessicurl, SheaMoisture, Curl Junkie, and As I Am. I really want to try some Darcy's Botanicals, but haven't had the chance yet. The all-natural products tend to be more costly than run-of-the-mill drugstore or Sally's products, so I pick which ones are most worth the splurge for my hair.

+1 these are all great recs :) The DB pumpkin conditioner is one of my faves too. I love, love, love curl junkie, but like said above, it is pricey.
