Thank you ma'am, but look at your hair. Da bomb! (or am I showing my age)

Here's a mini update....over the last week I've been using ORS twist and loc gel. It works pretty good, but I am concerned about the long-lasting effects e.g. dryness. So, I'm still searching. I haven't ordered the Thick and Slick custard yet, but I'm going to. I am so lucky to have NC.com and all of my sisters in the name of the curl. If I didn't have you all, I probably would have cut my hair. Or worse, relaxed it straight!

Gracias chica! I'd love to see more pics of your hair...I'm assuming a journal is in order?

By the looks of it, our hair is similar...lost between the realms of type 3c and 4a...

Hmmm...Have you tried Barry Fletcher's Thick N Slick Custard Creme Gel? It sounds similar in description and ingredients, but BF has more wholesome ingredients. I can get a 16 oz tub for less than 9 bucks.

Here are the ingredients:

Water, hydrolyzed protein, glycerin, avocado butter, propolene glycol, aloe vera, triethanolamine, carbopol, pvp, aqueous extracts of sage extract, nettle extract, chamomile extract, hops extract, rosemary extract, balm mint extract, yarrow extract, dmdm hydantoin, polysorbate 20, fragrance.
EK - This is the one of the best products I have ever used! Thank you so much for the req because I had horrible HORRIBLE service when it came to Bubble Up and was really upset. However, this is BETTER and I can't thank you enough!!!!

Okay, it's a done deal. I was already sold when eccentric_kurlz recommended Barry Fletcher's Thick N Slick Custard Creme Gel, but if Potterville is endorsing it, I'm definitely on board.

I've never heard of this stuff before, but I did a quick google search and found these links:

1.Hairforsale
2. Bubbleup.com

LOL! Glad it's working for you, Potterville! And it's one of my favs. Works good for twists too.

I'm always happy to enable the inner PJ in my fellow curlies.

I've seen this stuff in my local BSS all the time and I keep wanting to try it. Does this dry dull and what's the hold factor?

Nice firm hold, but still soft hair...hard to find.

EDIT - When I say hard to find, I mean the combo of firm and still soft hair.

^^^ I live in the DC metro area....and I've seen it at Judy's Beauty Supply on Rhode Island Ave (across from the metro station next to NWL). I've also seen it at one of the BSS's located at PG Plaza Mall (also across from the metro)

I placed an order for this product at afroworld.com before coming across this post. I thought I had missed out on my chance to try this product which I had finally decided to try after putting it off for years. Well I just got a call from afro world needing me to let them know if I wanted chocolate or vanilla (and the shipping rate was higher do to weight than what was quoted me and wanting to know if I still wanted it). She said it would ship out today. I'll keep the forum updated.

Whoa, so1913 you dug this one out of the archives! I saw the bubble up on the Afroworld website, but they were charging twice as much. I think I'm over it now. I tried KinkyCurly today for the first time. I like it, so I'm healing and I'm moving on.
