Post Heavy butters and creams

(Hint): I NEED A HEAVY ONE

I tried ecostyler today and it wasn't heavy enough, but it had good hold.
Any leave in, creams, or butters for me? Thanks!

Need it for school asap (by august 23)

Shea butter is pretty heavy and some people feel that sheamoisture curl smoothie is heavy. I think you're really probably looking for a substitute gel though: ecostyler does nothing for my hair. I was 'forced' to use it while on vac these past few days and I immediately remembered why I stopped. It gives me no hold. I swear by the gel wetline extreme. You can get it at Sally's (the clear bottle/jar not the black one). It's thick and gives perfect definition and hold and I have use A LOT for my super thick tailbone curls and it doesn't flake not to mention it mixes well with other products. Added bonus is that it's cg if you do that. Extra bonus even if you're not cg (which I'm not) it mixes well with non cg products

Thanks But I looked in my area and never came across a Wet line Extreme gel I'll look for something with shea butter. None of these good products are in my area! There is only one sally store and there's nothing in there!

Have you heard of Cantu shea butter leave in? Is that good?

a staple for me is jane carter nourish & shine. you can use it on wet hair, damp hair, or dry hair. i use it after my leave in. if i use a styler, then i use it before or after my styler, depending on my hair, weather, etc......

you can buy it online at their website, on curlmart, on aveyou.com. on ground at wholefoods, the vitamin shoppe, and i think some targets.... look on their website for where it is sold by you.

Sry it took me so long to reply. Though cantu leave in is very good and moisturizing its not that heave and it doesn't mix well with many products. It'll leave your hair looking like it has cottage cheese it in...not cute.. However cantu natural curling cream is a stable for me. It is very heavy and is the only cream I have found so far that when used with my gel it won't frizz up as it dries. The combo of the cantu and xtreme has my hair always looking nice and predictable. No surprises just soft shiny curls/waves

Just wanted to say that Jane nourish and shine was horrible for me I threw it out after a few uses. It made my hair dry and tangled and didn't mix at all with my gel. Of course everyone is different but for the price I would check out cantu ($5+ at walmart) first before shelling out the money for the nourish and shine. Just my 2 cents
