And I'm having a HORRIBLE time finding them.
I have fine(ish), fairly thick, 2c/3a hair that has been tortured to within an inch of its life. In the past five years I've straightened, blow-dried, curled, used henna, box dye, and worked outside in blazing sun and 100+ degree temperatures. I also used more silicones and sulfates than any curly girl should ever think about. I didn't even know my hair was
curly: I thought it was just dry, puffy, and completely out of control.
CG has been GREAT for me, and my hair's healthier than it's ever been (yay!) But I really need some new products, and I was hoping all you wonderful people could help me find them
I really, really
need some moisturizing products that I can use. DT, PT, leave-ins, and stylers all need to be ordered, so any suggestions you have would be great. I live in southwest NM where it is insanely dry (dew point is currently 3, which should tell you a lot) so humectants, glycerin, and alcohol are all really bad ideas. That's also why I can't just search the product reviews: they keep giving me things like KCKT, which I already know will wreck my hair in this super dry weather.
My hair loves: AOHSR, anything extra moisturizing, and anything with protein. Homemade coconut oil DTs and avocado/egg PTs have also turned out great.
My hair hates: KCKT, anything Deva ever produced, and every gel I've ever tried. ACV rinses haven't been a big success, either.
*Phew* Do you think I've talked enough?
Any and all suggestions would be fantastic! I'd especially love to hear about any moisturizing creams or butters I could use every day . . . my hair needs the protection.
