Just wanted to say hi! I've been lurking around for quite a while. Have learned A LOT!
I am the only curly in my entire family. My dd has completely stick straight, beautiful, shiny hair. My ds' hair is a bit wavy and thick.
Am doing a modified CG (for about 3 weeks now,) can't go completely w/o poo, my scalp gets too oily. I am currently looking for a good poo. I do like Jessicurl HCC
, but find I may need more to get all the oil out.
My hair is very fine, but there is lot's of it! Unfortunately if I put anything w/o hold, i.e., conditioner, conditioner w/ hold (sebastian 9, PM The Cream,) or any gel that isn't SUPER strong; my hair gets frizzy and the curl falls out
I have FOREVER been looking for my hg of gels that keep my curl, w/o too much crunch, but don't make it too soft either. I have been using PM Sculpting foam for years, but only b/c I haven't found anything that I like better, and that isn't saying very much.
Some new products I've tried (after reading so much here):
Jessicurl products-so far I love the curl formation they give me, but I have a bit of frizz and by the end of the day, A LOT of frizz.
Aura Gel-YUCK, made my hair WAY too soft and frizzy and then the curl fell out after scrunching out the crunch.
Got2B-Great curl formation and hold, but SO CRUNCY and had a hard time getting the crunch out after scrunching.
Herbal Ess Hum Def gel-Made my hair too soft after scrunching out crunch and then had frizz and curl fell out.
I do love Suave M&H and honey rinse! I have also stopped combing my hair altogether. I used to comb after putting product in and then to part my hair. I complained that my hair was so flat on top. So after reading here, I stopped and don't part my hair anymore, just kinda let it do it's own thing and I really like it better.
Anyway, will hope to *meet* you all.
